News: Switch’s Zelda news channel lets you farm in-game items for Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for now

Zelda: Breath of the Wild feeding animals

Nintendo’s recently released Zelda news channel, Tips from the Wild, will grant the player in-game items after subscribing to it. The first Tips from the Wild post informs the player that they can feed friendly animals, and gives the player some free items to try this out. The best bit is this can currently be done over and over again, if you’ve got the time, to farm a bunch of free goodies for use in game.

This new feature was introduced to the game in the recent v1.31 update for Breath of the Wild which confirms that ‘In-game items can now be obtained from launching the software from certain articles distributed through a new News channel’. In this first instance you’ll receive an apple and a piece of meat.

If you tap on the ‘start software’ link in the Nintendo news post, you’ll receive the items in the game. Provided you save after each drop, you can then go back to the post and hit the link again and store these item drops.
