Final Fantasy 7 Switch Update Fixes 7-Year-Old Bug
Final Fantasy 7’s Switch port quietly received an update that seems to fix one of its most notorious bugs: an audio glitch that has been reintroduced in nearly all of its modern ports.
The now-squashed bug caused the game’s overworld music to restart from the beginning of the song after every battle. It’s not the worst bug in the world, but can make playing significantly more repetitive as you’ll rarely hear more than the opening moments of any overworld song… and you’ll hear it a whole lot.
Frustratingly, this particular audio bug has been a recurring nightmare for longtime fans. It dates back almost a full decade at this point, first present in the modern PC port of FF7 from 2012 before popping up again in the PS4 port from 2015.
