Nintendo was made aware of a “near the end” bug from Metroid horror this forces the software and the game to close.
A fix is being worked on to prevent this from happening which will be available sometime this month. So what’s the problem? Apparently, if the player destroys a door while a card marker for that particular door is displayed on the card, an error message will appear and the software will shut down.
Here’s the full rundown, courtesy of Nintendo’s official support site:

Us is a mistake in the Metroid horror Game that prevents the player from proceeding if the following specific sequence is followed towards the end of the game. To prevent this error, we are preparing a software update that should be available in October 2021.

What should I do: 1. Restart the game and remove the door symbol from the card before playing through this sequence to avoid this error.
