The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a unique chest that most players won’t be able to open. Located in the Aris Beach area of the map, it’s placed deep underwater. Making it more troublesome to open is that it only appears if you get within 60 meters of it and will begin to sink immediately. In fact, it disappears entirely after just seven seconds.

No one has been able to open this chest – until now. YouTuber Kleric managed to recover it after working on theories for about a month.

Here’s a look at how it all went down:

Last week, Sabec released the simple app “Calculator” on the Switch eShop. The company is quickly following that up with another piece of software.

A number of high-profile Switch games currently lack release dates. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Bayonetta 3, Metroid Prime 4, and Shin Megami Tensei V are all on the horizon, but there’s no word on when they’ll be available.

There’s an interesting bit of news concerning these titles stemming from the Epic vs. Apple trial. An internal document from Xbox surfaced today, which contains a rough outline of “high-profile” Xbox One releases for the Q3 and Q4 2020 period in addition to Microsoft’s expectations of notable releases from other companies. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Bayonetta 3, Metroid Prime 4, and Shin Megami Tensei V are all here, with Microsoft believing as of last August that they could have launched between October and December.

Fans have previously managed to turn The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild into a first-person game with mods. Thanks a new glitch though, that’s no longer necessary. Any player can technically change the perspective without mod use.

Twitter user A.xk originally discovered the glitch. It involves taking out the camera, holding an item in the menu, and cancelling the item hold.

Here’s a look at the glitch in action:

Yacht Club Games has teamed up with Arby’s for a special promotion. In Kids Meals at participating locations, Shovel Knight launcher tokens are available. Each token contains a Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove DLC code for Switch as well as Steam.

More and more games are seeing television and movie adaptations these days, but the latest announcement is completely off the wall. Konami’s Frogger franchise, which has been around for a few decades, is now being turned into a competition series.

The new 13 episode series will air on Peacock, the streaming service from NBCUniversal. Hollywood Reporter states that “contestants will play the role of the frog from the Konami video game and attempt to cross a series of obstacles that includes traffic, snapping alligators and hungry hippos.” The site further adds that the courses (“crossings”) will test players’ strength, strategy and problem-solving abilities with the winner taking home a cash prize.

Twitter user HEYimHeroic recently uncovered some interesting little tidbits about Miis on Switch. It turns out that the SDK has references to something called “Special Miis”.

The odd thing about Special Miis is that Nintendo has never used them in any way. The feature hasn’t been removed either. It’s just sitting there, waiting to be used.

Here’s what’s known about Special Miis:


Super Nintendo World has all sorts of props relating to the Mario series. However, there’s one asset that may have been built by using a fan mod as a reference.

Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii is a mod created without Nintendo’s involvement. Fans developed the project with their own levels, bosses, music, and more. It also has original assets, including a particular type of cactus that has now been spotted at Super Nintendo World – flower and all.

The image included above is a photo taken at the theme park. For reference, here’s what the cactus design looks like in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii:
