Duplicate Shields Discovered in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom!

Hold onto your rupees, folks! We have an unusual situation on our hands. A dedicated Zelda fan, known as MarieTherese11, stumbled upon not one, but two Hylian Shields in Link’s inventory in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Now, before you say “duplication glitch,” this gamer swears they didn’t use any nefarious tricks to multiply their precious shields. Talk about luck!

Since the game’s release on May 12, players have been hunting for ways to bend the rules of reality in Hyrule. From duplicating weapons to amassing a fortune in rupees, gamers have been on the lookout for handy glitches to make their heroic journey just a tad less stressful. Even though Nintendo has tried to patch things up with updates, it seems they still have some kinks to work out.

MarieTherese11’s discovery has left the Zelda community scratching their heads. How did this miraculous shield multiplication occur? Well, according to the player, after a trade with the quirky Korok Seeds merchant, Hestu, and upgrading Link’s shield inventory slots, the duplicate Hylian Shield mysteriously appeared. The player even went the extra mile and adorned the Froggy Armor, but swears up and down they are no stranger to the art of item duplication. Hmm… an enigma wrapped in a mystery! The Zelda community is buzzing with theories about what other glitches might still be lurking in the game.

The Mysterious Version 1.1.2

Here’s where things get interesting. MarieTherese11 admits to playing Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom on version 1.1.2, instead of the newer update, version 1.2.0. Nintendo rolled out version 1.1.2 on May 25, aiming to smite the pesky bugs and glitches that plagued the game since launch. However, much to the delight of treasure-hungry gamers, many duplication bugs survived the update flurry. Some players, like the cheeky Redditor Moblin_Chef, encourage those still on version 1.1.2 to discover the secret behind duplicating the legendary Hylian Shield.

In the normal course of events, Link can only carry one Hylian Shield at a time, making this newfound duplication glitch quite the game-changer. But here’s the kicker: it might only work in version 1.1.2. So, if you’re rocking the latest update, sorry, folks, you may have to settle for a single heroic shield. Don’t despair, though, as Nintendo might have something up their sleeve.

Glitches, DLC, and the Never-Ending Quest

As of now, no official Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom DLC announcement has been made, and version 1.2.0 remains the latest update for the game. If Nintendo plans on gracing us with additional content, we can expect more updates to iron out any remaining bugs and exploits. But don’t underestimate the resourcefulness of the Zelda community; they are determined to unearth new duplication glitches before Nintendo finds and squashes them.

So, hold tight, shield aficionados! The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is waiting for you on the Nintendo Switch. Get ready to face the unknown, multiply your shields, and embark on an unforgettable adventure!
