Following the Switch release of Super Mario RPG last week, Nintendo issued an update on its customer support page, revealing that a bug had been discovered that could halt progress.

The plan is to release a software patch next month to resolve this issue. For now, here are the details about this error, as well as the workaround:

Super Mario RPG error notice

Impurity contents
In some cases, after the Paratroopa event triggers in Monstro Town, the Paratroopa will not appear when you go to Land’s End, making you unable to progress in the game.

Workaround for the bug
If you encounter this error, you must go to the Mushroom Kingdom, and then return to Land’s End again. Doing so would make the paratroopers appear as intended.

Notes:
-There is no need to go inside the castle in the Mushroom Kingdom. The glitch must be fixed if you enter the city surrounding the castle.
– It is okay to use the map to travel to the Mushroom Kingdom.
– When returning to Land’s End from the Mushroom Kingdom, you can either use the map or the “To World Map” option.


Despite this flaw, this remake of the classic SNES game is still worth a look. You can learn more in our review:
