New Zelda News: Breath Of The Wild Update Out Now
In addition to announcing details on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s first expansion, Nintendo today launched a new update for the celebrated role-playing game. Breath of the Wild Update doesn’t add new gameplay features, but it lets you listen to the game’s audio in one of its nine languages and then use a different language for text on-screen.
On Nintendo Switch, this is enabled when you download the update, which is 1.2.0. For Wii U, you need to download a “Voice Pack” from the eShop.
Today’s Breath of the Wild patch also includes “various fixes to improve the gameplay experience”. However, Nintendo did not offer any specifics about what’s changed.
This is Breath of the Wild’s second update. The first came out on March 3 alongside the game, making the Nintendo eShop accessible from the title screen so people can buy the game’s DLC pass. Additionally, the March 3 update also made tweaks to allow for a “more satisfying gaming experience”.
Breath of the Wild was a launch title for the Switch, becoming the fastest-selling launch title for a Nintendo platform ever. It has now shipped more than 3.84 million copies across Switch and Wii U.
