Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze update fixes game breaking bug

Some users have been unable to progress beyond level 3-3, Frantic Fields

Nintendo has released a Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze update which resolves a game breaking bug.

According to the platform holder, update 1.1.0 "fixes an issue where, upon completing level 3-3 - Frantic Fields, the path to level 3-4 - Scorch 'n' Torch would not open up, preventing players from proceeding with the game."

Downloading the update will enable players who encountered the progression issue to continue the game as normal.

"We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience," Nintendo says. "Please start the game while your Wii U console is connected to the Internet to update the software. The software version after this update will be 1.1.0, as shown in the image below.
