Hollow Knight’s New Patch Fixes a Variety of Bugs

Hollow Knight

Team Cherry have released a new patch that has fixed numerous bugs for Hollow Knight on Switch that even includes an amusing apology due to the removal of extra Geos being obtained by using the fluke spell.

They have also detailed plans for adding controller rebinding to the Nintendo Switch version, expected to arrive with the Gods & Glory Content Pack.

Here’s the full list of bugs that will be fixed with this most recent patch:

• Fixed an issue where save files would sometimes fail to load while Kingsoul is equipped.

• Fixed an issue where striking certain invulnerable objects with a Nail Art could cause game to crash.

• Fixed being able to soft lock the game (empty dialogue box) by hard quitting out after the final Nailsmith nail upgrade.

• Fixed an issue that caused a mask shard to never spawn if a player dies in the same moment as killing Brooding Mawlek (this is a retroactive fix – players who missed the shard can now return to claim it).

• Fixed Shade spawn location in the upper section of Watcher’s Spire.

• Fixed an issue where player could get soft-locked by using Desolate Dive/Descending Dark to slam down onto a mysterious object in Beast’s Den.

• Fixed an issue where players could get stuck in Lemm’s room by dreamgating in while Lemm is away.

• Fixed a text display issues in the in-game map for certain languages.

• Adjusted a Shade spawn location that was inaccessible to early players.

• Fixed a bug where a Dreamshield could disappear after using Dreamnail on NPCs or objects.
