The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a ton of Korok seeds to collect. With how massive Hyrule is, you can imagine just how many there are out there to find.

When you do collect all of the seeds, a reward will be waiting for you at the end. What you get though… well, let’s just say it’s interesting. If you’d like to find out for yourself, continue on below.

The Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe Edition is pretty much sold out everywhere at this point, but it’s now up on Amazon Canada. Secure a copy here.

The guide comes out at the very end of the month. Amazon Canada will ship to the US, and it’s currently $20 (Canadian) off.

Splatoon’s SplatNet service is still up and running. The website can be used to check the online status of friends, let them know when it’s time to battle, and compete for the best rank.

It’s always interesting to see game ideas that were left on the cutting room floor during development. In the case of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, director Hidemaro Fujibayashi revealed in the game’s new “making of” video series that the team scrapped something relating to characters.

Fujibayashi and the rest of the team were hoping to include “tiny people”, complete with “tiny-sized towns” and Link himself shrinking. However, “with all these other characters that stand out, we thought it would be difficult for these little guys to be able to live out their own place in the game.”

Fujibayashi’s full explanation:

Initially announced yesterday, Nintendo has debuted The Making of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Fans can get an inside look at the game’s creation. Take a look at the full series below (warning: potential spoilers).

Eurogamer has a new report up explaining how The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild uses dynamic resolution scaling. It doesn’t mean much for the end user, but it’s still pretty interesting. The technique is used in the game to help maintain the frame rate.

When Zelda: Breath of the Wild is running Switch to the max, resolution appears to dip to 90 percent on both axes. In other words, when in portable mode, resolution drops to 1152×648 for 81 percent of native 720p in total. Breath of the Wild has a native pixel-count of 1440×810 when docked and stressed, dropping from its usual 1600×900.

Eurogamer further adds:

When you walk up to a decayed Guardian in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you can obtain various Ancient Parts. However, players can receive even more by using a special trick.

brandonNaustin discovered that Magnesis can be used to pick up metallic rocks and flip over Guardians. Doing so reveals additional parts. It doesn’t work with Guardians that have legs or are buried in the ground, but you should find this useful in a number of instances.

Here’s a look at the trick in action:
