Earn in-game items by reading news!

Nintendo has recently released a new The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom update that fixes broken quests and more.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has been quite a fun game to play letting players unleash their creativity with Link’s new powers. It did come with issues when it launched and still continues to have issues even now. This new update that Nintendo has released might have just fixed most of the problematic ones that would not allow players to progress at all.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Update Fixes Quest Issues

Update version 1.2.0 is now available to download and adds fixes for a number of quests and side-quests, where some players have not progressed beyond a certain section. This will be helpful for players who got stuck in many quests and had to abandon them to move on. Now, they can complete them after a long wait.

Read News, Earn Items

The update has also added a feature that allows players to redeem items from the Switch News channel on the console’s Home menu. Players will be rewarded for reading official Nintendo news stories via the Switch console. They will get in-game items that can help them.
