You’d think a game as perfect as Tears of the Kingdom wouldn’t need a post-release patch, but Nintendo released one this week anyway. The patch notes are pretty short and what isn’t mentioned are fixes for various replication flaws that some users are using. Even so, it appears that all ways for players to increase their items by nefarious means have been taken care of.
Tears of the Kingdom players have naturally been testing the sequel’s attacks since patch 1.1. This includes what seems to be the most popular, which only works with the most powerful weapons in your inventory. Very convenient.
One player claims to have tried every known cloning glitch, and it just doesn’t work as another echoed that sentiment. It’s proof that everything we do at Tears of the Kingdom is being watched, even if Nintendo doesn’t admit it. Yes, that means Eiji Aonuma has seen a giant robot that shoots fire from the penis you made.
If Tears of the Kingdom’s shoddy weapons have always relied on duplication glitches to mitigate their breaking blows, then you only need to panic for a moment. Yes, Nintendo appears to have cleared out all of the cheating glitches players have noticed in the first two weeks, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other methods we don’t know about yet. I’m sure the same people who immediately recognized that the old defect had been addressed are already trying to find the new one.
Nintendo didn’t mention the cloning glitch fixed in the latest patch notes, but detailed other changes. Fixed an issue with music playing loudly for no reason, such as the main quest issue. Some players have reached a deep point where they have previously been unable to progress.
Determining the value of player discovery and patching Nintendo has decided to leave behind in the latest Zelda game can be difficult to predict. Many would argue that the point of Tears of the Kingdom is to solve puzzles and find exploits to get around. Building bridges that can effectively move you wherever you want seems fine, but the ability to multiply your most valuable items seems to have crossed the line in the game’s creators’ eyes.
