Zelda: Breath of the Wild update out now (version 1.1.2)

Posted on April 11, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch, Wii U

Update: Nintendo’s official statement is the same as the last patch: “Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.”

Original: Following the new update released at the end of March, another new patch has just been distributed for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Players can download version 1.1.2 right now.

The last Zelda: Breath of the Wild update introduced performance improvements, enhancing the game’s frame rate on Switch in particular. As of now, patch notes for today’s download are not yet available. We’ll keep an eye out on something official from Nintendo.

Thanks to Billy for the tip.

    I’m eager to see what’s in the update when you guys find out πŸ™‚

    • Smash Brothers!

      Looks like they patched the unlimited arrow thing, and that,s not a good starting point for a changelog…

  • ben

    More framesssssssssss

    • Billy

      Maybe no more sudden complete stop when beating up certain Moblins

      • Kenshin0011

        Yea, there must be something off with the code of those enemies that causes that

        • Have you seen that after the last patch?

          • Maxwell Fletcher

            I’ve been seeing it a lot with the Silver Moblins in Hyrule Castle, my game will just freeze for a couple seconds whenever I knock one down. I’m playing on the Switch in case there’s a difference with the Wii U version.

          • Evan Gustavson

            I’ve experienced the same thing. I usually avoid confrontation if possible, but I was in Zelda’s room to find a lorebook, and there was a moblin.
            I wanted to look for the juicy world/character building info without distractions/damage.
            The game froze for half a second every time I knocked it down.
            Maybe even see an Easter egg like the Silent Princess in the journal in her study.

            There’s two lorebooks in that area.
            Her room has her Diary, and her study (which is upstairs across the bridge being patrolled by a guardian skywatcher) has her journal (and the silent princess from the flashback)

          • Kenshin0011


  • Boomdiers

    The unlimited arrows glitch, they patch that.

    • Donald Lugo

      They sure did…
      Some things are not meant to be fixed Nintendo!

    • Smash Brothers!

      Really? that sucks big time…damn nintendo.

  • β‰ˆ KobobKC β‰ˆ ^.^

    Earlier today I witnessed a Guardian Stalker fall right through the floor of the world. Maybe they fixed that?

    • Robert Lott

      sounds like a feature

      • β‰ˆ KobobKC β‰ˆ ^.^

        Didn’t look like one.

    • Addy

      What? Are you sure you’re not play a Steam Greenlight game?

    • Jack Red

      Can you blame the Guardian Stalker? It was probably like, “I’m forced to deal with a hero with a shield, arrows, and weapons that’re capable of killing me in one shot? They don’t pay me enough for this. I’m just going to cross dimensions through the floor to a place without the means of killing me instantly.”

      • Evan Gustavson

        Guardian Stalkers take three hits to kill.
        Parrying their beams or using an Ancient Arrow does less than half their HP.
        Decayed Guardians die in one hit, but Guardian Stalkers take three hits minimum I believe.

        • Pc Nick Apple

          what if your bow do x5 arrow or just x3 is a one shoot kill…

    • Aqua

      This seems to always happen when you use stasis on a damaged Stalker. Not the rusted legless ones, the sleeping ones with less legs in Hyrule Castle Town.

      • Hylian Ticipated

        Hyrule Castle is where it happened to me weeks ago, only once, though, cuz I never tried that again. It was the one sleeping in front of the malice eye right when you enter the court.

      • β‰ˆ KobobKC β‰ˆ ^.^

        Yep, that was my case.

  • Adrian Brown

    It’s great that Nintendo keeps polishing this masterpiece of a game.

  • You thought your experience was pleasant before?
    This is going to be WAY. MORE. PLEASANT.
    I’m talking Link sippin iced tea on his porch in Hateno while someone else stabs Ganon to death with a cool breeze 73 degrees fahrenheit while being fanned with a korok leaf PLEASANT.

  • MoYeung

    1.1.2 Download size for Wii U? And why no firmware update on Wii U itself?

    • Alex Babins

      They’ve dropped support of the Wii U.

      • Hylian Ticipated

        Wii U actually dropped on its own. Said it couldn’t take it anymore and committed a very selfish act.

  • Linkavitch Chomofsky

    Dog petting update?

    • That’s long overdue. Also, where are the cats?

      • CaptainPleb

        Cats were an invasive species to Hyrule. Ganon promptly exterminated them.

      • Tlink7

        I may or may not have hoarded all the cats in Hyrule

        • ForeVision

          So that was your house I encountered, tucked away in the hills far from the prying eyes of civilization! I wondered what all those cats were doing there….

      • They’re in Xenoblade Chronicles X

  • Andrew Eiler

    Just a minor update with a new divine beast and dungeon, 2 new sections of Hyrule, and a few extra shrines + side quests.

    • Sure? Any sources or screens? Because this seems to be a fake πŸ˜€

      • Andrew Eiler

        You’re right, since it’s just a minor update it’s probably a frame rate improvement and that’s all. I was just kidding.

    • Sno

      Sorry this isn’t on the xbox1, all content was packed in the original game. Nice try tho, no points for see through trolling.

  • Addy

    Another one? Was the framerate problem so big it needed two patches?

    • Fandangle

      I’d say it’s still a problem until they can make it totally stable. The vanilla release was pretty bad. I don’t usually use words like “slideshow” but it was like a slideshow in certain parts because the drops were so frequent.

      The last one fixed some but not all, and there is still other problems the game has.

      • Addy

        “and there is still other problems the game has.”

        I already know what the problem is, the weapons are as durable as a candy cane made of very thin glass.

        • Hylian Ticipated

          Except you’re being dramatic.

        • Fandangle

          Nah, I wouldn’t say weapon durability is a problem. I’d say there is a definite lack of personality in the world. Where Twilight Princess, Wind Waker, and Skyward Sword had many memorable one off NPCs like the school teacher and her students, the students at Skyloft, Pretty much everyone in TP’s Kakariko and Ordon Villages.

          Then BotW pretty much has… the uuh clothing dyer, and uuuh Impa’s assistant, the leader of the Yuga. I really have to think about it.

          Then there also should be a weapon storage/creation system IMO. Maybe put a blacksmith in one of the towns and give Link’s house a chest to store weapons in, then bam, weapon durability isn’t an issue at all.

          Then there is the lack of difficulty and difficulty scaling. The game gets way too easy after a certain point, even if they replace all the enemies with silver variants it’s still pretty easy, the game feels like it was scaled so you would go straight to Ganondorf’s castle just about because early game is the only part with any semblance of challenge to it.

          Then there is the voice acting, which was totally unnecessary and it was incredibly awkward in the english version of the game. They do nothing with it that couldn’t have been achieved with text either, especially with the english version as the localizers were either incompetent or lazy with a lot of it and didn’t bother extending camera queues at certain points so some voice actors actively speed through their lines just to fit it into the scene. Then there is the HUGE discrepancy between the character’s speech and their text, like how all the Goron have verbal tics, and especially Yunobo who not only sounds like crap but also is missing his “goro” verbal tic in every voiced cutscene. Then there is the Gerudo who text-talk like they have accents but when the cutscenes roll around there is none to be heard. And that’s not even getting into the general poor quality most of the voice actors have, which you can probably blame on NoA’s completely awful voice recording division.

          I’d even say the Korok Seed quest was more of a problem than weapon durability, since there is SO many of them and you get a dumb golden poo that only EA knows how to appreciate.

          tl;dr: Weapon durability isn’t a problem.

          • timZ117

            Lack of personality in the world?

            Dude im not gonna spoil anything here but there are tons of really interesting and memorable npc’s around the world of breath of the wild. It just sounds youve played the main quest until a bit of hateno village then stopped.

            Ive played like a 150 hours now, and im still having amazing encouters i never new existed.

            Great points on the voice acting, though i disagree they shouldve left it out. It shouldve been better, AND more present then it is now imo.

            Also, you dont get it with the korok seeds reward do you..?

          • Fandangle

            I’ve played around 170, did all the shrines, did a majority of the side quests. and I sat there struggling to even remember what most the NPCs even looked like. I remember bits and pieces but it’s a far cry from TP or WW where the entire wold was filled with personality. even some of the more important NPCs fall into JRPG trope land and I only remember them because I honestly never thought zelda would stoop so low as to have a super smart loli diva character.

            it avoids most of the hang ups that open world ganes bring but a lot of the NPCs suffer from generic looking character models or bland dialogue, in the hylians at least.

          • Hylian Ticipated

            You should stop watching streamers with blurry quality, because all the races have different attributes such as color, hair, and variety to them than previous Zelda’s. Rito’s that are owls, parrots, different jewelry and clothing that sets them apart from being upper class or soldier. Goron’s that are darker. Zora’s that are either green, red, or blue. Some with shark designs, others with manta-ray. If it’s one thing Zelda gets over other games as far as NPC’s, is that mostly every character has a unique looks and personality. Maybe try playing the game instead.

          • Fandangle

            I actually actively avoided streams of this because I wanted to avoid all the idiotic fanboying over it because I knew everyone was going to overreact to it.

            Colorful looks don’t matter much when their personalities are bland. The only Rito I can remember are the singing kids (Even then it was less about them individually and more for the fact how annoying it was), the Champion rito, the modern Rito you hang out with (The only voice actor in the game I feel comfortable saying did a good job) and then Kass, which is the only one I can remember by name, and that’s only because everyone was drawing pron of him on my tumblr dashboard.

            It just feels like they traded quality for quantity really. They swapped out a handful of unique NPCs for a huge amount of personality-less generic ones with a handful that they put effort into and those handful just aren’t as good as the other ones in the other Zelda games.

            I think the issue BotW has, besides just bland dialogue in general, is that it doesn’t linger on them too much. There is maybe one or two things you can do with an NPC and that’s it.

          • Evan Gustavson

            Yeah, but the Hylians are by and large the most cookie cutter race in this game.
            In previous games, the reverse was true.
            They only had one model for all the Zora’s that weren’t relevant to the main story.
            Same for Gorons
            Same for Gerudo.
            Here, there’s the sand Seal racing champ Gerudo rocking an Afro, the Zora’s in all manner of colors.
            The Rito come in falcon, owl, and parrot varieties.
            And to be fair, you don’t deal nearly as much with Hylians in the main plot.
            They’re cookie cutter because they’re not really super important.

            You’ve got plenty of personality in Prince Sidon, Yunobo, Kass, Purah, Paya, (even a bit from Impa), Bolson (What’s our Credo?), Hetsu, the Tarrey Town Crew.

            Hylians have cookie cutter designs because they’re mostly filler in this case.

            This game focuses on the relations with other races, fixing their problems and their relationship.

          • Justin McQuillen

            Prince Sidon’s character model and animation quality was really a high point in the game for me, I had to stop just to appreciate the cool scenes.

          • Hylian Ticipated

            There’s smiles and personality in every corner. I’ve still yet to fully explore 1 region, put 330ish hours into the game already. I’ve come back to areas many times and have missed sections. Every inch of the world feels hand-crafted with care and not randomly generated. The towns and NPC’s are also all great. I defeated my last divine beast about a week ago because I’ve been preserving my play-through and just going as I see fit. Really about 12 more shrines left and 400-ish Korok seeds and then it’s off to Ganon. Also been maxing out my gear’s upgrades to 4 stars.

            The main quest is nice and all, but this game’s about exploring. Pro hud and shrine sensor disabled. It’s a great time not having my hand held and just adventuring.

          • masterjedi

            Weapon durability isn’t a problem, it’s a game dynamic. A very good impact that brings a distinct variety to the game.

          • Addy

            If I wanted to go into battle with a easily breakable sword, I may as well arm myself with a cardboard tube and a toilet seat while firing toothpicks with a rubberband.

          • Fandangle

            Then I’d suggest you start using the multitude of weapons with higher durability rather than the mock-master sword set.

          • Addy

            That’s why I’m using the remote bombs more often to pick off the small fry, plus some of the cool looking weapons are hard to find or replace and I don’t want to waste them.

          • Fandangle

            Better weapons are actually pretty easy to find. If you can find them sitting on the overworld anywhere you can mark it and then come back every blood moon to get it. That’s not to mention how basically every other enemy wields the upgraded Royal weapons and there is the respawning chest rewards too.

          • Addy

            “mock-master sword”

            Yeah, the Master Sword is a mock. 30 damage and decreases as durability lessens? The royal class weapons are stronger then that. Oh, and pulling the sword out of the pedestal hurts you, that’s what I wanted, Link dying of a hernia while trying pull the blade of evil’s bane out of a stone while a bunch of Koroks watch.

          • Fandangle

            It’s 60 if you’re fighting against certain monsters in the game. I’d argue it’s a necessary trade off because then the master sword would break the game, making something that’s already easy easier.

          • Justin McQuillen

            The golden poo was awesome, Nintendo trolling is god-tier. They did it for the lulz, it’s to hearken back to the N64 collect-a-thons. I agree with a lot of the other stuff you said though, especially the voice acting.

        • Tlink7

          If weapons didn’t break, you’d find wayyyyy less of them, which I would find boring. Plus throwing weapons at people and watching them explode and do massive damage is awesome πŸ˜€

          • Addy

            Throwing a claymore is not considered massive damage, barely a dent more like it.

          • Evan Gustavson

            Personally, I’d prefer the hunt be for materials to upgrade weapons rather than replacement weapons, but that’s just me.

            And I think you mean: “swinging weapons at people so hard they explode and do massive damage is awesome”?
            Throwing weapons is lame imo.
            Best weapons are: Master Sword
            Fire Rod
            Ice Rod
            Lightning Rod
            Meteor Rod
            Blizzard Rod
            Thunderstorm Rod
            Korok Leaf
            Why? Cause instead of throwing them, it allows you to aim (and in the Master Sword’s case, allows it to use) their magical projectile.

          • Tlink7

            I would prefer it if you could repair weapons, but oh well. I personally love chucking spears at people πŸ˜€ I do also like the rods

          • ForeVision

            Apparently weapons get their durability refreshed sometimes when sucked up by an Octorock. I’ve not managed to get one to do that though, it just spat my weapon back at me.

          • Sno

            Rusted weapons yet refreshed if swallowed by octorock. Cleans the rust right off

          • ForeVision

            Hmm that does give context to all those rusted weapons that lie around… I’ll have to try that myself soon.

          • ForeVision

            Ahhh yes, this mini-tantrum mobs tend to throw when you steal their weapon, just for you to “give” it back to them, usually ending in their deaths.

        • Justin McQuillen

          Actually I have the opposite problem with this game, I would argue with 100% confidence that the weapons actually don’t break fast enough. Once you get good at the game, your weapon inventory is always full and you have to leave weapons on the ground. The people complaining that they break too fast have it completely backwards.

      • Sno

        Can you send me to these parts? Cuz I’ve beaten the game almost gotten all the shrines and have like 300 seeds and have only had frame issues recently fighting certain bokoblins

        • Fandangle

          The fact that you claim to he so far in and you haven’t seen them yet makes me doubt your claim honestly. I’m not one of those people to really care about FPS and I don’t bother to pay attention to it but the framerate in BOTW was so bad I’m honestly surprised that anyone could not notice.

          • Sno

            I can upload proof if its really needed. Tbf I’m playing solely in handheld

          • Fandangle

            It’d kind of be pointless now that they’ve had two whole patches dedicated to fixing the notoriously bad framerate.

    • Finchy74

      Optimization is always the last step with software and due to the launch date being firm, they clearly didn’t have enough time for it.

      The game wasn’t by any means unplayable prior to the first patch, but it did have some significant frame rate dips at times, all the way down to what my eyes see as the high teens. That first patch was a huge improvement, although there are still a few spots/times with some more minor frame rate dips.

      I’m just firing up BotW now after the 1.1.2 patch, so we’ll see if they removed the remaining hiccups.

      • Addy

        “Optimization is always the last step with software and due to the launch date being firm, they clearly didn’t have enough time for it.”

        Well then they should have done a better job optimizing the game. This is 2017, not 1998, I’m playing Breath of the Wild, not Ocarina of Time.

        • Evan Gustavson

          In 1998, optimization was a bigger deal since you had to do everything before the game went gold.
          Fast forward to 2017, and they can always fix the framerate in post because the game can be patched.
          Optimization was always fairly low priority in video game development.
          At least Nintendo’s team intends to fix it as much as possible.
          Nearly every AAA title has frame drops as the expense for better graphics.

          • Addy

            “Fast forward to 2017, and they can always fix the framerate in post because the game can be patched.”

            And when you buy the game long after the servers shutdown for good, you’re stuck with the bugs and problems the game had at launch. So get the game fast, otherwise you’ll end up paying for an overpriced drink coaster.

          • Evan Gustavson

            I was halfway done with everything before the first patch was issued.
            Even had the Master Sword.
            By the Second Patch, I was 90% done with everything not related to Koroks.
            By this patch, I’ve done everything except obtain/upgrade the Skyward Sword set and Fierce Deity set.

            I don’t understand why people get so worked up about frame rates.
            It really doesn’t render a game completely unplayable unless it consistently drops below 10 fps.
            It’s not particularly enjoyable or easy on the eyes, but I can work through it just fine.
            Especially if it’s localized to a small part of the game.

            Besides, long after the servers shutdown, I’d probably be buying a port on the Switch 3/4, not some vintage trash from 10 years ago.
            If I’m buying a Switch game, then I own a switch.
            And nearly everyone who owns a switch owns BotW.
            Anyone who owns a Switch and doesn’t own BotW probably doesn’t want to in the first place.
            There’s been an article on this site saying that the install base is nearly 1:1 between BotW and the Switch.

        • Finchy74


    • Kenshin0011

      There are still plenty of drops in the Switch version. It got better after the last one though

      • Addy

        Yeah I’m sure all of the framerate issues will be gone after the third patch. Or fourth… Or fifth…

        • Tlink7

          I don’t think the game will ever be devoid of frame drops

  • Addy

    No update for the Wii U version. Just now I checked, still ver. 1.1.1. Maybe tomorrow it will come.

  • ibo

    i just got done Zelda BOTW.. not a fan how they end the game…. overall it’s a great game best game i played in years. tho i do not think it’s 10/10 due to the weak ending, it’s more like a 9.5 to me now :v

  • Is “a more pleasant gaming experience” to current Nintendo games what system stability was to the 3DS? Imagine how pleasant these games are going to get down the line O,O

  • Madoka Kaname

    From What I’m seeing, it adds a limit to the Arrow Farming exploit from Mounted enemies, Fixes a major but Rare bug with the battle against Master Kohga, and MAY also have fixes for the Moblin Freezes.

    Also probably general performance improvements.

  • Tlink7

    *puts on PC masterrace hat*
    HEH, more like adjustments have been made to make for a more… PEASANT… gaming experience…


  • Cyber_Akuma

    β€œAdjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.”

    I am so sick of seeing this boilerplate non-comment comment in so many of Nintendo’s patches. Hell, they even did it with adjustment patches to Smash Bros, not even telling people what they have changed. What kind of a fighter doesn’t detail what it’s re-balancing patches do?

    They really need to start actually saying what these patches do, at this point the patch comments might as well say “Insert comment here”

  • LordCancer Kain

    did they fix the weapons? mine keep breaking!

    • Justin McQuillen

      get good, you will have the opposite problem of too many weapons in your inventory

  • maxleresistant

    Does it improve the WiiU version this time? Because 1.1.1 improved nothing for this version. Don’t believe me?
    watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6NkNgI1ssw (4min50s mark)

  • Sheinar

    I don’t seem to be getting any frame drops in Korok Forest at all now (only checked undocked though), which is a great improvement. Still wish Nintendo would provide an actual changelog though for those who are interested.

  • Smash Brothers!

    Why are they so insistent on not actually telling people what the patch is doing to their game?!

    • Justin McQuillen

      I know it may seem like it, but it’s not Nintendo’s job to appease autists.

      • Smash Brothers!

        The hell? what autistic people has to do with the matter? are you high?

      • Smash Brothers!

        The kind of useless coment i would expect to find on youtube,s comment section but no here, retards like you are taking over this place now?
