Zelda: Breath of the Wild – News channel on Switch now live
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in News, Switch | 4 Comments
Yesterday, Nintendo issued a new update for Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Part of the patch included the groundwork for some new functionality. Nintendo said it would be opening a News channel on Switch tomorrow that allows players to obtain unknown items when launching the game from messages that are delivered.
That channel is now open for business, but you won’t find anything there just yet. Nintendo will likely begin sending messages sometime this week. We do at least know that director Hidemaro Fujibayashi will be sharing “useful tips”.
With all that said, you can follow the new Breath of the Wild channel. Doing so will ensure that you receive Nintendo’s messages about the game, and you’ll be able to nab those mystery items.
Thanks to GIANTBOWSER for the tip.
Miitomo has been updated with new content. Players can nab the latest items in the Miitomo Drop stage, “Let’s head to the festival! Miitomo Yukata Fashion #2”.
Available items include:
– Ukiyo-E tee
– Wave pattern yukata
Users can select Miitomo Drop stages from the Shop tab. Miitomo coins or game tickets are needed to play.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle creative director Davide Soliani shared a little nugget about the game’s performance on Twitter. When Switch is docked, the resolution will be 900. Like almost every other Switch game, it’s 720p in portable mode.
We’ve also pretty much known that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle runs at 30 frames per second. But if you needed further confirmation, Davide has offered just that. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is 30 FPS both docked and when playing on Switch.
