Pokemon developer Game Freak has rolled out a new update for Pokemon Sword and Shield. This patch appears to be very minor, however, primarily resolving a handful of bugs.
According to the patch notes on Nintendo’s support website, Sword and Shield‘s 1.3.1 update “fixed some issues for a better gameplay experience.” The notes don’t delve into any more detail beyond that, so it’s not quite clear what has been fixed. If the update is not automatically installed, you’ll need to highlight your game’s icon on the Switch home screen, press the Plus button, and select Software Update to manually download the patch.
This marks Sword and Shield’s first update since October’s 1.3.0 patch, which added the games’ Crown Tundra expansion. That is included alongside the titles’ first DLC, The Isle of Armor, in the Sword and Shield Expansion Pass.
