According to the Americas support site for Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild now has an update available. Introduced on April 11th, the update is required if players wish to continue to use the game’s features that require the internet.
Players can also be rest assured that their save data will still be there after the update has been downloaded, which will occur automatically once your Nintendo system connects to the internet. For those who may still be unsure on how to apply the update, simply connect your console to the internet, return to the HOME menu and launch The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This will prompt the automatic update to download and install by itself, after which the latest version of the game will appear on the title screen.
As for what the update entails, the patch details reveal that adjustments have been made in order to provide players with a more “pleasant gaming experience” as well as better accessibility for the Nintendo eShop from the title screen to purchase the Expansion pass.
Despite Breath of the Wild’s overwhelmingly positive response, players have reported frame rate issues with the game at certain times during their adventure, so whilst a patch may be welcoming, the fact that the details as to what the update actually does being short may be confusing to many. Let’s hope it fixes the issues that certain players have been suffering from, and provides the pleasant experience stated in the brief set of notes.
