The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most popular games this year, so it is important for Nintendo to update it in a timely fashion so that users’ interest is not lost. Now the Japanese firm has updated the game again on the Switch and Wii U.
What’s new with Zelda: Breath of the Wild?
Nintendo’s latest update for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (version 1.3.1) comes with bug fixes and debuts a news channel on the Switch dubbed “Tips from the Wild.”
Tips from the Wild will be accessible via News on the Switch’s Home Menu. The news channel, which is scheduled to open within the next few days, will help players with in-game items. However, as of now, nothing is known about what items will be included. Nintendo, however, does say that certain items may not be available, “depending on your game progress and location.”
Further, the update has fixed the issue for The Master Trials of the Expansion Pass, where defeating some of the enemies for Kilton did not count toward completion when playing in Master Mode. According to wccftech, the patch also seems to have fixed errors in the recently added Trial of the Sword mode. Many Reddit users have reported that glitches related to star fragments, infinite ancient parts, diamonds, and Korok seeds are now not there.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released alongside the Switch in March. So far, the game has been selling very well, and recently, the company released the first DLC pack for the game called the Master Trials. The game was met with critical acclaim when it was launched in March, and according to Nintendo, it has sold about 4 million copies of the title so far.
Wireless arcade stick for Switch
It also appears that Nintendo Switch owners will have one more option other than the Joy-Cons to play their favorite games. Players will soon be able to buy an arcade stick, thanks to 8Bitdo. The stick, called the 8Bitdo NES30, is priced at $79.99 and will ship starting August 20. The NES30 Arcade Stick is now up for pre-order on Amazon.
The 8Bitdo arcade stick is meant mainly for gamers who love playing titles like Street Fighter or King of Fighters on the console. The stick can be connected to the console via Bluetooth or USB, which has a three-meter USB cable. The stick gives you 18 hours of playtime and takes up to two hours to get fully charged. The 8Bitdo NES30 can also be used with Windows PCs, devices running Android 4.0 and above, Steam, and Macs, notes PCMag.
If you are thinking that the arcade stick will be just an extra physical burden for you, then you must know that the stick measures 300 by 226 by 116mm and weighs 1.4KG.
“This company has carved out a unique niche with its ability to create flexible controllers with modern features that still play into nostalgia felt by longtime gamers, and it’s cool to see them try more unique designs,” TechCrunch says about 8bitdo and its NES30 stick.
