Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom Patch Notes - New Update Doesn't Fix Duplication Glitch

"The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom" is a hugely inventive game, full of puzzles and enemy encounters that can be solved in a plethora of ways. Using Link's new powers and the game's impressive physics engine, it feels like just about anything is possible. The only real limitations in the game are the players' imagination — and money. Players can exchange Rupees in various settlements to buy new armor and supplies, but it's not always easy to raise enough moolah for the gear you want. That's why many players have taken to exploiting an item duplication glitch, cloning materials like diamonds and then turning them around for a quick profit. 


A glitch like this obviously breaks the game a bit, which is why players are expecting it to be patched out any day now. Now that Nintendo has released Update Version 1.1.1, fans are no doubt curious to learn what all has changed — and how it might have impacted this exploit.

The latest patch has (mostly) left the glitch intact

According to Nintendo's official patch notes, one of the main story quests in the game, "The Closed Door," has not been registering as complete. The new update will allow players who have met all of the quest's requirements to mark it as completed. Additionally, the update includes a number of tweaks that are meant to "improve the overall experience for players in Zelda."


One thing it hasn't done, however, is fix the duplication glitch — not entirely, at least. Though some players have reportedly had trouble pulling off the glitch after the update, others have found new ways of cloning their items. 

Still, now that the glitch has received significant attention online, it's probably only a matter of time before the developers find a way to patch it out entirely. Even though "Tears of the Kingdom" director Hidemaro Fujibayashi has quipped that it can be fun to cheat in games, this is probably not what he had in mind.
