Stardew Valley Switch Update Glitch

If you ever tried to visit Ginger Island, you might experience some kind of glitch, especially if you’re playing on Switch. This also happens on Switch multiplayer, which can frustrate your gameplay.

It’s recommended to wait for further updates, but it seems like PS4 and XBone had their fix already. Keep in mind that in order to play the game nicely, you should have some backup saves.
