Xenoblade Chronicles 3 launches tomorrow, and before many get their hands on the game, the RPG's day one patch is now available. The changes are reasonably minor and mainly focused on the Expansion Pass and in-game menu accessibility, as well as standard bug fixes, but it ensures keen adventurers will be all set to explore Aionios.

The full patch notes have been published by Nintendo (thanks to Nintendo Everything for the translation) and can be found below:

Ver. 1.1.0 (Released July 28, 2022)

- Added the ability to receive items distributed via the Expansion Pass. (After downloading the Expansion Pass, an “Expansion Pass” option will be added to the Main Menu, letting you receive the distributed items.)

- The Main Menu can now be opened by pressing the X button during gameplay.

- Several issues have been fixed in order to ensure a more comfortable gaming experience.

We have literally hours before we all can get stuck into Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and this first patch should help us ease into this titanic world. And in case its imminent release tomorrow isn't enough to tempt you, then you should check out our glowing review of the game:
