Surprisingly, Nintendo and MercurySteam have released a new update to Sam’s latest adventure, Metroid Dread.
This latest update fixes an issue that causes Samus to disappear under certain circumstances. The development team says it has made a correction to keep the experience as it was intended. In addition, there are no other changes or fixes in this latest update.
Here is the complete patch for version 1.0.3 on the Nintendo website:
Ver. 1.0.3 (Released Nov 16, 2021)
Fixed an issue where Samu’s damage detection disappeared under certain conditions.
We decided to fix this problem because it is possible that it could happen by accident, and if that happens, it will result in a gaming experience that is much different than usual. Metroid Dread was originally meant to be experienced.
Nintendo Dataminer OatmealDome reveals how a note might have been directed at speedrunners:
This latest update is a continuation of version 1.0.2, which included a final boss fix and a number of other fixes. You can read more about this particular patch in our previous update.
