Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition version 1.1.1 update patch notes

General Issues (1.1.1)

  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Arts Palette from closing when no selectable arts were available during a Chain Attack.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Arts Palette from closing when no selectable arts were available during a Chain Attack and the Junk Sword was equipped.

General Issues (1.1.0)

  • Fixed lockups that sometimes occurred on skip-travel and event-scene transition screens.
  • Fixed an issue with the quest Finding Happiness where the incorrect speaker name was being displayed.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Status and Item details from displaying when the cursor was moved quickly between Cosmetic Equipment and Equipment on the Change Equipment screen.
  • The buff icon now updates with the physical and ether defense buffs received and lost when the Monado Art “Armor” is activated and expires.
  • Fixed the following issues with the enemy party of Leg Volffs when Napping Volffen moved toward the waterfall by the Volff Lair:
    • Leg Volffs would continually move around and respawn in a small area, with an additional Leg Volff suddenly appearing.
    • The Leg Volffs would stop at the watering hole instead of moving with Napping Volffen when it appeared.
    • Battling any remaining Leg Volffs would cause the battle to end abruptly, and battles would start and stop as soon as you entered their line of sight.
  • Fixed an issue where sound effects would continue into the subsequent scene when event skip was used during a scene where the future is shown.
  • Fixed an issue where continuing to use the debuff skill “Lock-on” on an enemy would cause it to target only the first user of the skill.
  • Fixed a lockup that occurred in the Central Pit when boarding the elevator with your controlled character at a certain time during its descent.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is now available on Nintendo Switch.
