“A cinematic will kick off at the start of the chapter, where players will receive a key item. Please refrain from attacking with the knife until the notification stating that you obtained that item appears at the top of the screen. After getting that key item, it will appear in the Key Items menu and the treasures of the briefcase.

“After the update is applied, players will be able to continue the game, even with the save data where the error previously occurred,” Capcom commented.
