  • Various fixes to improve gameplay.

While not mentioned directly in the release notes, the patch also seems to fix various glitches in the recently added Trial of the Sword mode. Various users on the Breath of the Wild subreddit have reported that the infinite ancient parts, diamonds, star fragments, and Korok seeds glitch is no longer working.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available now for both the Wii U and Nintendo Switch. The title was released alongside the Switch back in March of this year, and the title has been selling exceptionally well ever since. Nintendo recently released the game’s first DLC pack, entitled the Master Trials.
