Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Update 1.5.0 Released; Includes Fixes to Improve Gameplay & New Asian Language Options
Nintendo has released The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild update 1.5.0 for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
As with most patches released by Nintendo, the release notes are rather minimal, but additional Asian language options alongside fixes to improve gameplay are mentioned. We’ve included the notes below:
You can now select Chinese (Traditional), Chinese (Simplified), or Korean in the language settings menu on the Switch console to display text in the selected language.
- Voice Language selection is not supported for the above languages. If you choose “Match System Settings” in Options, voice data will be set to Japanese.
Various fixes to improve gameplay.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released back in March of last year alongside the launch of the Nintendo Switch.
Two expansions have been released for the RPG, including the Master Trials and the Champions’ Ballad. The first-ever downloadable content for the main-line Zelda series was announced prior to the game's launch.
Starting when the game launches on March 3, players will be able to purchase an Expansion Pass for $19.99, granting access to two new sets of downloadable content for the game when they become available later this year. Immediately upon pre-purchase or purchase of the Expansion Pass, three new treasure chests will appear in the game’s Great Plateau area. One of these treasure chests will contain a shirt with a Nintendo Switch logo that Link can wear during his adventure, exclusive to the Expansion Pass. The other two will deliver useful items. The first content pack is scheduled to launch this summer, and will include the addition of a Cave of Trials challenge, a new hard mode and a new feature for the in-game map. The second content pack will launch in Holiday 2017, and adds new challenges that will let players enjoy a new dungeon and a new original story. The Expansion Pass will be available for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U versions of the game and are identical. Content packs cannot be purchased individually.
“The world of Hyrule, which we created for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is so large and vibrant that we wanted to offer more for players to experience within it,” said Nintendo developer Eiji Aonuma, the longtime producer of the series. “With this new Expansion Pass, we hope that fans will play, explore and enjoy the game even more.”
Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has confirmed that BOTW won’t be receiving additional content.
