Nintendo’s Paper Mario: The Origami King may not be the role-playing game that fans have craved for years but it’s still a pretty good time. Unfortunately, there’s an annoying bug that can halt your progress altogether. Since there’s only one save file in the game, players are forced to start over from the beginning.

In a recent statement to Polygon, a Nintendo representative said that, “We are aware of reports about issues affecting some players of Paper Mario: The Origami King. We are working to resolve these issues and plan to address them in a software update. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

The bug occurs late into the game when Mario has to give a VIP card to a Toad to enter the Spring of Rainbows. Upon entering inside, if Mario turns around and leaves, the Toad will still demand a VIP card. Unfortunately, with the card now out of your inventory, there’s no way to progress. Aside from deleting your save file and starting over from the beginning (the game will auto-save upon leaving the cave so you can’t go back to a previous save either).

Stay tuned for more details on when this fix will be deployed. Paper Mario: The Origami King is currently available for Nintendo Switch. Check out some extensive gameplay here or read our official review here.
