Wild Hearts werd over het algemeen vrij positief ontvangen, maar de game had zeker zijn zwakke punten. Een nieuwe patch zorgt ervoor dat de speelervaring een stuk beter zal zijn, doordat er verschillende problemen worden opgelost.

De nieuwe patch voor Wild Hearts zorgt er onder andere voor dat pc-bezitters betere performance kunnen verwachten, vooral als je een AMD-processor hebt. Tevens was het mogelijk dat de game crashte als het Minato-level werd geladen. Dit zal door de patch niet meer voorkomen. De gehele changelog is als volgt:
