When an update or patch comes out for a game, it usually comes with a list or post from the developer stating what was fixed. However, there are times when developers are a bit coy with such things. Nintendo is a big one in that they’ll post fixes, then say “Various fixes to improve gameplay” to sum up the rest. This recently happened with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s latest update.
To recap, the 1.3 update was the one that brought in the first DLC pack, “The Master Trials.” But it also fixed a bunch of things in the game as well. However, some things weren’t mentioned for one reason or another. So, Reddit user Re_Deemz put together a list of what wasn’t mentioned in their Patch Noes for Breath of the Wild.
First, you can go to to the title screen from the system tab via the pause menu. There are now Japanese voices for abilities when activated (the voices in the game have been a big point of contention for some fans). The framerate in Korok Forest has apparently been stabilized (though some dispute this).
The game now has faster loading times, the camera can now be turned to look directly 90 degrees up and down, it had a little less than that in the previous version. Scrolling in your inventory, when using the D-Pad on the Joy-Con, is now much faster. Finally, Farosh farming times have been changed from 5 am to 12 am.
While these changes may seem small, it’s often the smallest of things that can upset game balance in one form or another. Breath of the Wild is a grand game, and many refer to it as a masterpiece. So having small imperfections is bad, and not revealing when they are fixed isn’t helpful.
