At first I thought this was an issue with only Linguini & Remy and Miss Piggy’s Friendship, but gameplay showed me that is unfortunately not the case.
To explain, when going through their campaign like normal, I noticed the text blurbs between each stage of an episode did not change as I had made progression. And when completing an episode, I was not greeted with an additional dialogue between the characters, but instead I was taken unceremoniously to Linguini & Remy’s character page. No additional dialogues were added into the chat sections of the Friendship tab.
I had dismissed it at the time as a one-off, minor bug; I had other characters I was far more excited to see interact than Linguini & Remy and Miss Piggy at the time, but that is not to say the omission of these interactions did not negatively impact other players more than it did for myself.
But today I notice that EVERY new Friendship Campaign has this same issue, that is to say:
- Colette and Sally
- Colette and Megara
- Rapunzel and Jasmine
- Rapunzel and Bo Peep
- Flynn Rider and Rapunzel
- Flynn Rider and Aladdin
- Linguini & Remy and Colette
This is a different bug than just taking me to the character page instead of more of the campaign, as the Gonzo and Launchpad Friendship Campaign still had different dialogue and text blurbs as I progressed, despite taking me to Gonzo’s page between episodes.
I hope this is an actual bug and not intentionally done, otherwise that would be disheartening and frankly, very upsetting. I was very excited to see Rapunzel and Flynn Rider interact with the other characters, as I am with all of these characters together. To cut interactions cuts half of the game’s experience. I’m not even going to progress any further in any of these until the issue is resolved, as to not miss any special text or dialogue.
Tl;dr Newer Friendship Campaigns are incomplete and need to be fixed!
