Sorry, folks; the days of 999 Diamonds, Star Shards, and Dragon Horns have passed. After seemingly being left untouched in Tears of the Kingdom‘s 1.1.1 update, Nintendo has squashed quite a number of the item duplication glitches in the 1.1.2 patch.

For those who were unaware, Tears of the Kingdom was found in its first couple weeks to possess quite a number of easy ways to duplicate items. Some were as simple as pausing and unpausing the game really quickly while gliding. These methods were propagated everywhere online and were quite beloved by players in need of a couple more copies of some of the game’s rarer items.

While Nintendo’s patch notes don’t specifically mention the glitches, there is a vague, “Several issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience.” This is a notably frequent catch-all used by Nintendo for all manner of bug fixes. Glitch hunters have in fact lamented the loss of quite a number of the game’s very powerful bugs that were also removed in this update.

These fixes are probably for the best ultimately though. While sneaking a couple tricky items sure can be a relief, it does break the spirit of the game quite a bit. Besides, if you’re particularly bothered, you could just disable auto-updates on your Switch and live forever with an outdated copy… at least, until another item duplication trick is found.

What are your thoughts? Were you one of the folks sneaking some extra Zonaite? Is this the first you’re hearing of it? How long do you think until another item duplication glitch is found? Let us know in the comments!
