Glitch lets your horse continuously sprint in Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Every horse in Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a limited amount of stamina. You can sprint for a set number of times before your horse needs to rest for a few seconds. But if you’re willing to take advantage of a new glitch, you can have it spring continuously.

Nintendo scrapped tiny people from Zelda: Breath of the Wild
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.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild uses dynamic resolution scaling
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.

Neat trick to get more Ancient Parts from decayed Guardians in Zelda: Breath of the Wild
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:

Zelda: Breath of the Wild director inspired by Minecraft and Terraria, talks developing for Switch
In the past, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has spoken about being inspired by games such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in creating Breath of the Wild. But what about the game’s director, Hidemaro Fujibayashi?
Fujibayashi cited two games while speaking with EDGE this month about games that inspired him: Minecraft and Terraria. He told the magazine:
“I was rather inspired by playing Minecraft and Terraria. I was able to learn from the gameplay and the possibilities found in. I could learn from the sense of adventure, exploration and how it inspired curiosity.”
As for real life inspiration, Fujibayashi is involved with an adventure club with other Nintendo staff in which they participate in outdoor activities:
