Zelda: Breath of the Wild glitch lets you keep the Bow of Light as long as you want

Quite enlightening

The final boss battle in Zelda: Breath of the Wild grants you the Bow of Light, which certainly adds to the epic encounter. Sadly though, you only get a little bit of time with the bow before the credits roll and it's game over. Wouldn't it be nice to hang onto that bow for your entire adventure? Well now you can, thanks to a new glitch.

While Breath of the Wild may have come out years ago, fans are still digging through the game to see how they can bend it to their will. New glitches are discovered all the time, which pave the way for exciting ways to play. This time around, a "memory storage" glitch is being used to grab the Bow of Light for use through your entire journey. Watch the video above for the step-by-step process on how to pull this off.

Zelda's voice actress from Breath of the Wild/Age of Calamity talks about online negativity for her portrayal and how she handled it

The internet loves to hate

Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the first official game in the franchise to give a voice to Zelda. That voice was provided by Patricia Summersett, who reprised her role for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. In an interview with Zelda Dungeon’s The Champion Cast, Summersett talks about how some of the negative reaction to her acting impacted her, and how she used some of that negativity to fuel her performance in Age of Calamity. Check out her comments below.

“That was tougher to deal with at first, because I was very sensitive to it, and just wanted everybody to be as happy as possible for such a big game [Breath of the Wild]. You really have to keep that kind of stuff in perspective, or one does. You really got to be positive about that stuff. I’d say the negative people tend to be more vocal online, just by default – that’s the nature of the algorithms of the net, and it does take some getting used to. One has to build a thick skin, I think, with something like this. I’d definitely say my skin has gotten a lot thicker over the last years, since taking on this particular role, just because it’s required more thick skin than some of the other kinds of failures or critiques I’ve had in the past.

There’s something in that to channel as well, because that’s how Zelda feels, and she’s doing great, but she feels that way eternally, and that’s her plate. It’s very relatable in that way, I think. Anybody who’s taking risks and trying to work very hard at anything, you come across that. I do love that about her character in general, the fact that they dig into that part of the storyline for her: what it means for her to feel like a failure, but keep pushing forward and striving for something bigger, and for the benefit of all. One can use that as inspiration as one uses heroes as inspiration.”

Nintendo opens Japanese site for Zelda: Breath of the Wild that chronicles player memories and favorite moments from the game

3+ years of amazing Zelda fun

While we all wait for new info on Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Nintendo has opened up a special Japanese tribute site for the original Breath of the Wild. The site is meant to gather messages from Breath of the Wild fans in order to share their experiences with the game.

As of right now, the site has 17 pages full of messages from Japanese players. One of those messages comes from a 67-year-old grandmother, which you can read below.

“I decided to travel to Hyrule Kingdom at 67 years old. At first, I struggled to climb off the tower after Link wakes up and activates it. My hands were sweating, hearing my grandchildren complaining, and I finally managed to do it after multiple tries. I was alone and grinning when I managed to defeat a Guardian for the first time. I’m still proud I ultimately managed to discover and clear all 120 Shrines before my grandchildren did. My journey ended with my grandchildren praising me: “grandma you’re so awesome!!”. Did the desolate Hyrule Kingdom managed to revive into a beautiful country? I would love to see it again with my grandchildren.”

If you want to snoop around the site for yourself, you can have a look at it here.
