This week, Nintendo threw out a brand new patch for Xenoblade Chronicles 2, updating a lot of the bugs that have been with it since the major update that came along a few weeks ago. But that’s not the only thing they added, as there’s now some additional bonus content for New Game Plus added to the mix. You can check out the complete patch notes below, which shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to download if your Switch hasn’t already done it.

- Fixed an issue causing the rare blade Dagas to disappear if bonded with a driver other than Rex, but engaged with Rex when starting a New Game Plus.
- If Dagas has disappeared, downloading the latest update will cause him to be restored.
