We've recently reported that an update for off-TV play was released for 1001 Spikes on Wii U. That patch also fixed the audio glitches the game was experiencing. Unfortunately, users are reporting that the new patch causes a handful of control issues, including incorrectly mapped controls on the dpad. While we wait for Nicalis to adjust the patch, another user has come across a workaround to set things straight.
It was a long time coming, but the off-TV patch for 1001 Spikes has finally been released. Now you can kick back on your couch and play the game without turning your TV off. No word on if the patch also fixes the audio glitches that could sometimes crop up.
