The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has received its latest update on Switch and Wii U. Nintendo just came out with version 1.3.4.

This week’s item distribution for Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now available. If you’ve subscribed to the official news channel on Switch, a message from Hidemaro Fujibayashi should be appearing.

Once you’ve received Fujibayashi’s message, boot up Breath of the Wild from the note. You should then gain access to five normal arrows. The distribution is a bit on the tame side, but it’s tough to complain about something that’s just a little bonus.

This week, the game’s director Hidemaro Fubuyashi has some armor-enhancing items for us. These are as listed here: Yellow Chuchu Jelly (x3) and Electric Keese Wing (x3).

The director pairs the items with a helpful tip on how to use them: “Levelling up the Rubber Armor set twice will give it the ‘Shockproof’ effect.” It’s implied that the electrifying items will, when brought to a great fairy fountain, help in upgrading the Rubber Armor set.

Stay tuned for more Breath of the Wild distributions.
