If you’re still exploring Alrest you’re in luck, as Nintendo has just released the planned version 1.1.1 update for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Be sure to hit the + button and install it before you dive into the game next!

As we learned last week, the update brings much-needed changes to the map systems, some goodies for expansion pass owners and an easy mode for Tiger! Tiger! There’s more besides, too, and you can check out the full patch notes below (via Gematsu).

  • 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.

Given that the next batch of Expansion Pass content for the game (some extra quests), the next update should land in January. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date as the massive JRPG continues to grow!
