Nintendo fans have waited a ridiculously long time for Final Fantasy VII to come their way, and that dream finally came true with the Switch. Unfortunately, there seems to be a bug that can halt your progress no matter how you try to get around it. Even worse, this is a bug that was caught by the public in the PC version nearly a year ago.
The bug crops up roughly 3 hours into the game when you're tasked with climbing up the plate in Wall Market to get to Shinra HQ. For whatever reason, there is something causing an issue with one of the game's triggers. After a few tasks, you're supposed to follow a kid that leads you to a series of caverns. If this bug hits you, the kid never shows up, and there's no pipe for entry. At this point, the only option you have is to scrap your save completely and start fresh.
You'd think this issue would have been taken care of for the Switch release, especially when considering it being logged by players of the PC version nearly a year ago. Hopefully Square-Enix can get a fix out to players soon.
