Here’s the crux of the article in video form:

Fall Guys is a unique battle royale game as it involves 60 players battling it out in a few mini-games to win a crown in the end.

Since going free to play on all of its platforms, the game has become a fan favorite for many players out there.

To recall, Fall Guys players have faced several issues in the past including the ‘Top Speed’ hunt challenge being bugged and trophies not unlocking on PlayStation, to name a few.

Due to this issue, the game closes and players return to the main menu with a message that says ‘The software was closed because an error occurred’ on their displays.

This issue prevents Fall Guys players from enjoying the game on their Nintendo Switches, as it keeps crashing randomly during matches.
