New Update Now Available For Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, Implements New Items Feature

A new software update for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has become available for download on Nintendo Switch. The update brings the game to version 1.3.1, which consists of various bug fixes and implements a feature that makes it possible to obtain in-game items through a new channel called The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tips from the Wild. Read on below for more information about the latest update:

  • We have fixed the issue in Pack 1: The Master Trials of the Expansion Pass, in which defeating certain enemies for Kilton was not counted toward completion when playing in Master Mode.
  • Various fixes to improve gameplay.
  • In-game items can now be obtained from launching the software from certain articles distributed through a new News channel (“The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tips from the Wild”) which can be accessed through News on the Home menu.
    • This channel is expected to open on 8/9/2017.
    • Depending on your game progress and location, certain items may not be obtainable.




  1. Wait, let me get this straight- to get certain new items, you have to first find an article on it on the Switch News Channel, open it, and then launch BotW from that article?

    That… is a bizarre way to acquire stuff in a game.

    1. No, they’re not new items.
      It’ll be more like survival tips in the news section going “Hey did you know you can make bonfires by striking flint next to a pile of wood?” – Then you hit the button launching Zelda, and you get an Axe, a drillbit, a pile of wood and a loose piece of flint.

      That kinda stuff. Like scanning amiibo.

      1. If you think about it it’s similar to how they threw stuff at us in Hyrule Warriors 3DS through SpotPass


  2. Hmm…..interesting update. I usually never notice anything with updates.
    I just completed the second Trial Of The Sword side quest, and MAN that was grueling. I kept wondering “when am I going to get to the final area?”. It started making me think of Pikmin 2, and all of those underground caves. Always wondering when I was going to reach the final floor.

    Can I get the Fierce Deity armor this way since Majora’s Mask Link amiibo is still sold out at Best Buy? No? Then this is useless.
