Thanks to a newly discovered in-game exploit, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild players can collect infinite Korok Seeds.
It seems that newly discovered glitches for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild just keep on coming. Recently it was found out that players can infinitely harvest Korok Seeds. The glitch was first revealed by Twitter user Bot_W. Youtuber Gaming Reinvented then posted a tutorial video demonstrating how players can activate, then use the glitch:
The process is a bit rigorous but it’s still easier than trying to collect 900 Korok Seeds the legitimate way. The glitch essentially requires tricking the game into giving you one of the Seeds without the full animation playing out. This then registers that it’s already been collected once.
Doing this requires making use of another recently-discovered glitch called moonwalking, which allows the player to do an infinite number of mini-jumps. This step can itself be a bit complicated, relying on a combination of the “hold smuggling” and “walk on horse” glitches.
Be warned that messing the exploit up even once will ruin it forever, so players will need to save after every successful attempt. For those who still want to attempt it, the window may be a bit small, as Nintendo has patched a previous Korok Seed glitch before.
A sequel to Breath of the Wild was officially announced during Nintendo’s E3 Direct earlier this month. The reason for said sequel is because Eiji Aonuma stated that the development team had way too many DLC ideas. Which of course means that an underwater mechanic is definitely possible.
And while Nintendo won’t say whether Zelda will be a playable character or not, you can see all the things we at DualShockers do hope to be in the final game (which includes letting us play as Princess Zelda).
