The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has received patch 1.2.0, bringing with it a host of bug fixes and enhancements. Released on July 4, the patch may have gone unnoticed amidst the celebrations of America’s national holiday, if not for a post on the Nintendo of America support website. This update addresses various persistent issues within the game, ensuring a smoother experience for players.
Rescuing Quests from Progression Hurdles
Among the primary fixes, patch 1.2.0 resolves critical issues that prevented players from progressing in two main quests and two side quests. The main quests affected were “A Mystery in the Depths” and “Secrets of the Ring Ruins.” Thanks to the update, Link can now proceed with confidence in completing Tears of the Kingdom without hindrance.
The two fixed side quests are “Hateno Village Research Lab,” an important mission for obtaining crucial gear, and “Lurelin Village Restoration Project,” which, although less significant, could impede completionists from fully exploring the game’s content.
Previously, players encountered a problem where they couldn’t receive items via the news feed on the Nintendo Switch’s home screen. If you had redeemed a special item but never received it in-game, this issue has been successfully rectified in the latest patch. You can now enjoy a seamless experience of acquiring and utilizing items obtained through the news feed.
Fairy Sightings and Culinary Changes
Another resolved issue addresses the absence of Fairies in the game. With the update, these mystical creatures will once again grace players with their presence. Additionally, the patch fixes a bug concerning Kiana in Lurelin Village, where her meals wouldn’t change under certain conditions. While the specific conditions remain unspecified, players can now expect Kiana’s menu to adapt as intended.
The patch also includes several unspecified fixes aimed at improving the overall experience of Tears of the Kingdom. Although the details of these enhancements remain a mystery, any improvements to the game are warmly welcomed by players.
Hopefully, the newfound stability doesn’t compromise the exhilarating experience of soaring through the skies with the recently discovered glitched item—a marvel uncovered just days ago.
With the release of patch 1.2.0, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom becomes an even more enjoyable and seamless adventure. Embrace the fixes, venture forth with renewed confidence, and uncover the mysteries that await in this beloved world of Zelda.
