Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Update 1.1.1 Now Available

Nintendo has released the version 1.1.1 update for Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

The new update brings with it a new mini-map size, an easy mode for the “Tiger! Tiger!” mini-game, and other changes or improvements.

Here’s the full list of patch notes:


Version 1.1.1

  • Fixed an issue occurring in the Gormott regular quest “One Step Ahead,” where acquiring the Healing Herb quest item at 12:00 caused the item to fail to be counted in the quest log, preventing completion of the quest.
  • Fixed an issue occurring in the Gormott regular quest “A Young Man’s Prize,” where acquiring the Snow-White Rhino quest item at 7:00 caused the item to fail to be counted in the quest log, preventing completion of the quest.
  • Fixed an issue occurring in the Gormott regular quest “The Riddle on the Wall,” preventing quest progression.
  • Fixed an issue occurring in Perceval’s blade quest “Failure and Success,” preventing quest progression.
  • Fixed an issue occurring in Gorg’s blade quest “Follow Your Passion,” preventing quest progression.
  • Fixed an issue occurring after viewing the “Something in Common” movie in the “Chapter One: Encounters” section of the Events Theater causing the camera to continue shaking after returning to the game.
  • Made adjustments to improve the stability of performing certain actions.
    • Due to these adjustments, time required for Skip Travel and loading event cut scenes has become longer in some instances and shorter in others.
  • A Pro Controller can now be used when the Joy-Con Controllers are attached to the system in Tabletop Mode.
  • Added an Easy difficulty to the Tiger! Tiger! mini game.
  • Added a new size of map to the mini map.
  • Pressing X when in the field to open the Skip Travel screen, the map of your current location will open.
  • Added functionality to allow players to receive the second round of items associated with the Expansion Pass.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is available now for the Nintendo Switch.

    The new map function is how it should have worked since the beginning and is SO MUCH nicer. I haven’t tried the easy mode for Tiger! Tiger! yet but apparently you take no damage from walls and it scrolls slower with no reduction of rewards.

    Put in 65 hours into this game to finally give up. The more I played it, the more frustrating it got due to the really bad quality of life issues. These updates should have been in the game when it released. It’s a darn shame because I really wanted to like this game…

    I’m here for the Dahlia header! Love her~

    I’ve only had time to get a couple hours into the game so hopefully these updates will make the game more enjoyable for me. It’s sad that waiting to play a game results in a better game, though. I hope stuff like FFXV doesn’t become the norm.

    did they fix the fucking issue in docked mode where the goddamn screen is cliped at the edges making it so you can see everything that you should?

    You might be right, but this game is anything but shit.

    Out of curiosity, what quality of life issues bothered you? The only thing that annoys the he’ll out of me are the obscene loading times that happen at the drop of a hat. They really need to stream their data more efficiently.

    Wow, that’s pretty lame. I get why people don’t want to grind that though.

    Haven’t run into that before the patch; what causes It to happen? Literally just docking the switch?

    I play it docked since I got it on my 4k screen n it clips the edges the arrow pointing where to go isn’t visible, and on the menu screen the bottom part that tells you what button does what is also clipped it’s annoying as hell

    That is not a patch issue, it is a settings issue. Change the settings on your Nintendo switch. Go to TV output then select change screen size.

    They’re not very good compared to the JRPGs I like.

    To invest that amount of time, you surely must have enjoyed it to some extent.

    Oh, you’re definitely right! I went into the game really wanting to enjoy it. Kept trying to find ways to enjoy different parts of the game, but alas, it just wasn’t for me in the end.

    Sure! So the biggest issue was the map. As someone who has played MMO’s, I’m used to the easy to use interface where I know exactly where to go due to how you can manipulate the minimap. You just couldn’t do that there. Also, i didn’t unlock the full 3 blades per character until the 20th hour of my playtime so I spent a lot of that time wanting to get really into the battle system. For the first 10 hours, the battle system really sucked because you pretty much sat there and auto attacked until your abilities became ready. Another thing that was annoying was a bunch of elite/high level monsters that were in narrow corridors for main quests; I’ve died to those a lot just trying to explore dungeons or the world. Speaking of load times, one time the game froze on me during a load screen; thank goodness I didn’t lose too much progress.
