The Last Hero of Nostalgaia – Ver. ???

  • Release date: April 19th 2024 (North America, Europe) / April 20th 2024 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
New Features
  • The Shopkeeper’s Goodbye – a new, final scene with the shopkeeper, for players who have found and returned all of his missing keys.
  • Fast Travel – in the late game, to assist with accessing DLC content and finishing any lore puzzles.
  • A new music track for Heartflow Altar – Just a subtle one, because it was needed.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a typo.
  • Fixed an issue where killing “NPC Hero” type enemies (anti-heroes, aggroed friendly NPCS) while they were frozen didn’t quite work properly.
  • Altered the Spear’s light one handed attack animation to prevent it from missing occasionally.
  • Improved the code that governs aiming up/down, while targeting enemies on a ramp. Attack animations are now more accurate.
  • Fixed a bug where the Spirit’s Greatsword was being treated as a regular sword.
  • Fixed the brutal physics bug where weapon hit detection would randomly fail until the current scene was reloaded.
  • Fixed a visual bug where players would appear to stand back up after falling to their death.
  • Fixed bug where items would remember their last “use multiple” amount, leading to an issue where, if equipped afterwards, could push an items uses into the negatives.
  • Fixed a few collision issues in the staircase section of keep of the stolen crown that were preventing fish men from traversing the stairs properly
  • Fixed a number of pathing issues with the stairs in the staircase section of Keep of the Stolen Crown by implementing a more complex nav-mesh-linking system.
  • Fixed a small bug where sometimes an NPC Hero would raise a shield, but no shield would be in their hands
  • Fixed a bug where NPC Hero type enemies would sometimes run at the player infinitely without attacking.
  • Fixed a bug where shooting a werewolf who was scripted to run to a drop down point before attacking you would cause them to get stuck trying to path to the player and failing.
  • Made it so that while getting up from being backstabbed, you can roll away, preventing situations where the player could be stuck in a backstab loop.
  • Fixed an issue where Runes and Heroic icons were labelled in the menu as “Consumable”
  • Added two new menu options -to enable/disable “Lock Camera Rotation” and “Camera Shake”
  • Fixed an issue where in new game plus, if the player owns two torches, when loading a saved game, only one torch will be loaded into memory, causing a break if the player had the item equipped.
  • Fixed an issue where performing a Whirlwind with a greatsword while a left handed weapon was holstered, would cause that weapon to pop to the player’s back.
  • Fixed an issue where joining a friend’s world would not sync the correct number of Anvils struck
  • Fixed an issue where joining a friend’s world would not sync the correct number of Torches lit in the Easy Maker’s retreat
  • Fixed a bug where if you die while climbing a ladder, sometimes your dead body memory pickup will spawn floating in the middle of the air.
