Zelda Ultrahand Tears of the Kingdom

Many of you will likely have noticed the vagueness of the final line, which we can only imagine is Nintendo tweaking the game to avoid various exploits.

For example, the item duplication glitch that allowed players to use Tobio’s Hollow Chasm to farm infinite resources? Gone for good.

We’re certain that players will have a good duping alternative by the end of the week however, so don’t panic if you’re a fan of easy exploits.
