Zelda Breath of the Wild update: Fans discover new secret that TRANSFORMS the ending
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fans have discovered a new secret that changes the ending of the game.
A line in the final battle takes on a new and different meaning when translated in Japanese.
In the English and North American version of the game, it's suggested that Ganon has given up on reincarnation and will never return.
"He [Ganon] has given up on reincarnation and assumed his pure, enraged form," the English line reads.
As Gamespot points out, this adds a sense of finality and suggests that Ganon won't return once he has been defeated in battle.
The Japanese version, on the other hand, makes it seem like Ganon's transformation is caused by a refusal to give up on reincarnation.
"This form was born from his obsessive refusal to give up on revival," the Japanese line reads.
Does this mean Ganon will one day return or that Beast Ganon is in fact his final form?
The news comes after Breath of the Wild fans discovered a hardcore new way to enjoy the Nintendo Switch adventure.
A new glitch lets players bypass the opening moments of the game and play without the Sheikah Slate or a day/night cycle.
The interesting gameplay glitch means that you won't be able to fast travel or even check the map.
On the other hand, no day/night cycle means that you won't ever experience the Blood Moon, which brings monsters back to life.
As Nintendo3DSChannel points out, the only drawback is that players can't complete all of the Divine Beast sections, which require the map to complete.
Players can still access the Shrines and Towers, while any cutscenes involving the Sheikah Slate will play out as normal.
You can even go back and recover the Sheikah Slate later in the playthrough.
It complements the recently released Master Trials DLC, which also adds a hardcore new game mode featuring tougher enemies and floating treasures.
