The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta attempt some trick shots in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Check out the full episode below.

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:

First 4 Figures has created a number of Zelda figures over the years, including designs for Breath of the Wild. The company is now expanding its offerings with the game’s Champions.

First up on the docket is Revali. First 4 Figures statues tend to be quite expensive, though this one can be purchased for $115.

Here’s the official product description and a promo video:

Despite being four years old, Zelda: Breath of the Wild is still very much alive and well. That’s especially so within the fan community. Just this past week, there’s been attention surrounding a major mod that adds even more content to the game.

Over 50 fans came together to create the mod (led by CEObrainz), which is known as “Second Wind”. It contains new quests, weapons, NPCs, and enemies as well as additional features like an original crafting mechanic.

Here’s the mod description relayed by YouTuber Waikuteru:

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:

With a new modding breakthrough, YouTuber Waikuteru has managed to recreate the town of Skyloft from Skyward Sword in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The area’s geography, color palette, and more were preserved.

Waikuteru found a way to freely edit a portion of the overworld in Breath of the Wild. The game has a number of sections that can be freely used, and section 75 is where Skyloft was placed.

Waikuteru further explains how it all works:

Spirit Orbs are among the most valuable items in The legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You can use them to increase the amount of hearts you have or raise your total stamina. There are around 120 Spirit Orbs in Breath of the Wild, but that number can now be increased with a new glitch.

You may recall something we posted about for Breath of the Wild known as the Memory Storage glitch. That same method is used again here. You’ll need to watch a memory right after loading the game, kill Link to set up a ‘no death’ run on a new file with glitchy effects, put the Travel Medallion near Eventide Island, enter any shrine you haven’t beaten, claim the Spirit Orb and then quit the game, reload your save file, start the Eventide Island quest, and immediately give up.

Here’s a look at all of the steps in video form:

A major discovery has come to light regarding the manner in which NPCs were created in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It turns out that they have a major connection to Miis.

Twitter user HEYimHeroic learned that NPCs in the game use an advanced version of the Mii format, known in the files as “UMii”. UMiis are similar to Miis from Wii U and 3DS with most of the same parameters. There are some differences like moles no longer being supported.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is quickly approaching its fourth anniversary. The game originally came out in March 2017, and fans have continued to come across interesting discoveries, secrets, and glitches.

On the topic of glitches, a very interesting discovery has now surfaced. Known as the “Memory Storage” glitch, the game can be exploited so that players carry over the Bow of Light to a new save file – and more.

When players go through Zelda: Breath of the Wild, they mostly see a destroyed Hyrule. However, with the recent release of Age of Calamity, fans are able to see what the world looked like in its original state 100 years ago. One modder is now combining the two experiences.

YouTuber banan039 has posted a couple of videos showing his work in progress of the modding project. One has structures from Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity sprinkled throughout the overworld while the other is specifically showing off a restored Hyrule Castle.
