Here’s the full list of changes:

  • Challenge Mode - Take on eccentric battles in this challenging new mode. In the added scenario “Faron Woods, The Great Battles!” players will challenge enemy outbreaks one after the other and aim for the shortest clear time.

  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed a bug that reduces your max strength if you’re defeated in battle.
    • Fixed a bug that where sound was not output from the TV when starting up the game after playing only on the GamePad.
    • Fixed a bug that paused the BGM during the battle victory screen.
    • Fixed a bug where, in rare cases, the screen would go black and sometimes freeze after a battle is won.
    • Fixed a bug where the game would randomly freeze when “Network Connections” is turned “On.”
