New Tears of the Kingdom patch fixes a progress bug
In case you have issues with The Closed Door, you need to update the game.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is here and it’s wowing people with a very sleek performance, despite the numerous additions to the core world map of Hyrule. There are still some lingering issues that need to be addressed, though, but thankfully, Nintendo is doing a great job at addressing these issues.
Version 1.1.1 was released late on May 18, and it fixes a progress-blocking issue with the main story quest The Closed Door. A number of players were having problems with it “even if they fulfilled the conditions to advance the quest,” but now that’s fixed, among with the classic “several issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience” line from Nintendo.
The Closed Door is a very early quest so it’s certainly very annoying to see it bugged. You can certainly clean wipe and restart, but simply updating your game to version 1.1.1 is the optimal solution.
