Zelda: Breath of the Wild Switch item distribution (10/11/17)

Nintendo has kept up with its weekly tradition of distributing items for Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Switch. If you’ve subscribed to the official news channel, a new message should be appearing.

Director Hidemaro Fujibayashi once again behind the message. He’s here to help you out with a tip about rusty weapons. When you start Breath of the Wild from the news message, you’ll receive a Rusty Broadsword upon starting the game.

    I haven’t been following these and it seems like I’m not missing out.
    When is it in this game, beside maybe in the tutorial and when you just go down from the plateau, that you’re glad to find a rusty broadsword ?

      I’m fairly certain the purpose of these item distributions is to give players basic items with which to put the “Tips from the Wild” into practice.

      I have not checked this particular one yet, but I can infer that it either hints at or explicitly states the ability to restore rusty weapons by tossing them at a Rock Octorok while it is inhaling.
