Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country - Version 1.0.1 now available (full patch notes)

Version 1.0.1 for Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country is now available, and it brings a number of tweaks and fixes with it. Check out the full patch notes below.

Version 1.0.1

- Fixed an issue with the Affinity Chart, in which completing it did not cause Trust to become S rank, and the completion reward item was subsequently not earned.
After downloading the update, checking the Affinity Chart again will cause Trust to increase to S rank and give the player the completion reward item.

- Fixed an issue with the third requirement to “Meet characters from the Community List” for receiving Jin’s Affinity Reward, Mineralogy. This issue prevented characters that had been met in event scenes or cut scenes to not be counted as “met” unless the player talked to them outside of those scenes.
This applied to the characters Popolo, Onyx, Kaleena, and Leo.
After downloading the update, if you have already viewed the necessary event or cut scenes, these characters will automatically be counted as “met.”

- Added a help message to the quest “A Rare Sense of Justice” that will appear when conditions to advance the quest have not been met.
- Fixed an issue when performing a Chain Attack temporarily preventing character selection after a “round” of attacks had been completed.
- Fixed an issue causing a character switch to take too long when selecting Brighid for a Chain Attack after she had used her Confining Flames ability.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas delayed in the Middle East

Those looking forward to Starlink: Battle for Atlas in the Middle East just got some bad news. Ubisoft has confirmed that the title has been delayed in that portion of the world, but absolutely no reason has been given for the delay. If we had to speculate, it might have something to do with some North American starter packs lacking a copy of the game.

Swery upset about The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories title translations in Europe, EU Switch version delayed



Things just got a bit awkward between Arc System Works and Swery. Turns out Arc System Works ended up translating the title of The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories for the European releases, but never bothered to consult Swery about their changes. He's obviously a bit upset about the situation, and now Arc is looking to fix things up. In turn, this has caused a delay of release for the Switch version in Europe.
