Nintendo put out a notice today on its Japanese customer support Twitter page informing consumers to stop using the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector due to security concerns. The same also applies to the Network Adapter, which only released in Japan.

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:

Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

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.
