Minecraft Dungeons version 1.2.0.0 patch notes

Some changes aim exclusively at Nintendo Switch.

Mojang has delivered a brand new update for Minecraft Dungeons to polish the game on all the platforms. The changelog below details the fixes that have been applied on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and work on all of them.

However, some of those fixes are tailored explicitly for Nintendo Switch and are related to the way Joy-Cons work and to the handheld mode while in Airplane Mode.


Nintendo Switch Fixes:

  • Fixed the game becoming unresponsive when Airplane Mode has been turned on while waiting for the code to link a Microsoft Account
  • Fixed the quick unequip button being incorrect on single Joy-Con, as well as category shifting buttons being wrong after changing between single and dual Joy-Cons while in the inventory
  • Fixed incorrect button prompts on the user interface when using a single Joy-Con in local co-op
  • Fixed the game freezing when pressing the Back button on the code screen while linking a Microsoft Account

Changes on all platforms are generally targetting known bugs that lead gameplay features not to work or even crashes, both in the single-player and multiplayer components.

  • Fixed merchants not showing up properly in online co-op
  • Food spawned from enchantments and the tables in Highblock Halls now count towards the “Om Nom Nom” achievement
  • Fixed “Kill the Zombie” tutorial hint lingering for too long
  • Fixed several text strings not fitting inside buttons in several languages

  • Fixed chests sometime looping the opening sound effect
  • Fixed low host FPS disconnecting players during camp/mission transition
  • Fixed missing textures on the reward screen in several instances
  • Radiance enchantment effects are now visible to all players in online co-op
  • Fixed runes not activating properly for clients in multiplayer sessions

As we’ve detailed in our Minecraft Dungeons review, the game is particularly fun with friends, so it’s pivotal that it works just fine in co-op, and this is mainly the reason why the developers are taking care of that aspects with such meaty patches.

One of the flaws of the title is that it’s rather short, and that will be fixed soon when the first DLC releases in a relatively short amount of time.
