It is now safe to visit the Paper Mario Shangri-Spa. Nintendo released Paper Mario: The Origami King patch 1.01 and did exactly as it promised. A game-breaking bug involving the area’s fifth spring used to be able to halt the progress of people who left the area before visiting it. Now, people can come and go as they please.

Basically, what would happen is that people would collect stamps for visiting four springs in Paper Mario: The Origami King. Each one would unlock a stamp on your Shangri-Spa stamp card, which you’d trade for a VIP pass to the final spring. But, if you gave the Toad the pass to enter the Spring of Rainbows and didn’t immediately do so, the game would automatically save, you’d lose the pass, and you wouldn’t be able to collect the stamps again. Update 1.01 takes care of that problem.

Here are the full Paper Mario: The Origami King patch notes for 1.01 from Nintendo. It turns out Shangri-Spa wasn’t the only place experiencing issues!

Ver. 1.0.1 (Released August 5, 2020)

Overall Fixes
  • Fixed an issue in which you would be unable to enter the Spring of Rainbows in Shangri-Spa.

    Note: If you have already encountered this issue, you will now be able to proceed normally.
  • Fixed an issue in which players were unable to hit the Toad on top of the fountain in Shroom City.

    Note: If you have already encountered this issue, you will now be able to proceed normally.
  • Fixed an issue where Black Shy Guy would not be registered in the Gallery of the Musée Champignon—even if you have previously defeated one.

    Note: If you have already encountered this issue, return to Scorching Sandpaper West after the sun has returned and defeat Black Shy Guy once more to add him to your Gallery.
  • Fixed an issue in the Ninja Attraction in which, depending on the state of the player, certain Ninji enemies were undefeatable and halted progression.

    Note: If you have already encountered this issue, you will now be able to proceed normally.
  • Fixed an issue in which the game would occasionally hard lock in the Rubber Band boss battle.
  • Fixed an issue in the Battle Lab in which the score would not be properly registered after solving 33 or more lineups in Speed Rings in the Ring Trainer.

    Note: Previously registered scores will not change. New scores will be registered correctly after downloading this update data.
  • Fixed an issue in which you could obtain an item from outside of a certain coffin in the Temple of Shrooms. This fix also corrects a related error involving hints from the Love Toad in Toad Town.

    Note: If you’ve already obtained the item from outside of the coffin, the Love Toad’s hint error will be resolved.
  • Fixed an issue in Overlook Mountain in which the event of looking up at Overlook Tower would occasionally occur from the bottom of the hill.
