It’s been a week since The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and what a week of memes, Korok torture, and Korok torturing memes it’s been. While the game’s more polished than most of its peers out there, Tears of the Kingdom still needs a couple of post-launch patches for the issues that are inevitable when over ten million people play your game, the first of which seeks to address a game-breaking bug for the main quests.

Here are the patch notes for 1.1.1 (if only all patch numbers were this easy to remember):


TOTK Ver. 1.1.1 (Released May 18, 2023)

General Updates

  • Fixed issue where, sometimes, the player could not clear main quest “The Closed Door,” even if they fulfilled the conditions to advance the quest.
    • If you have already encountered this issue, you will be able to clear the quest by downloading this update data.
  • Several issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience

Apart from the bug for The Closed Door, it just seems like there’s a selection of miscellaneous issues that have been addressed by this patch — it will be interesting to see just how far Nintendo goes to tighten things up for speedrunners, who have already breezed through the game in a matter of hours.

Playing TOTK and just a bit overwhelmed by all of the things? Don’t worry, here’s what you need to know about Korok Seeds and also make mates with dogs. Elden Ring didn’t let you do that. Checkmate, FromSoft.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available now on Switch.
