Two weeks after its release, Nintendo has fixed one of the most useful exploits in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the kingdom: a popular item duplication glitch.
When Tears of the Kingdom released on May 12, it felt surprisingly polished considering how complex its open world and systems like Fuse and Ultrahand are. That said, it wasn’t entirely bug free. Some of these glitches prevented progression, including one that was fixed in the 1.1.1 update, but others were much more useful, such as item duplication.
According to players, the Tears of the Kingdom update version 1.1.2, which was released on May 25, get rid of this game item duplication problem. Interestingly, this specific exploit is not detailed in the patch notes, which simply state that “various issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience,” among other audio and quest fixes.
You can check out the full list of version 1.1.2 patch notes below.
- Fixed an issue where audio would play extremely loudly under certain conditions.
- Fixed an issue in the main mission “In-depth Camera Work” where players were unable to progress beyond a certain point. Downloading the update will allow players to pass that point.
- Various issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience.
So if you want to duplicate items now, you’ll need to either decline the 1.1.2 update or play a physical version of the game that hasn’t been updated. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is now available for Nintendo Switch.
