While this is a relatively smaller patch for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, it fixes several issues tied to story-related content. Due to a bug or two, progression during some story scenes couldn't be completed, leaving them open. Patch 1.2.0 addresses those issues.

Below are the full patch notes for version 1.2.0:

General Updates

  • By starting the game from within certain articles released on a specific Switch News channel (accessed via the HOME Menu) players can receive several in-game items.
    • Depending on the state of gameplay progression or the location in which the data is reopened, there may be cases in which the items cannot be received.

Additional Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where players could not progress beyond a certain point in the main quests “A Mystery in the Depths” and “Secret of the Ring Ruins”, the side adventures “Hateno Village Research Lab” and “Lurelin Village Restoration Project”, the shrine quest “Dyeing to Find It”, and the side quests “Village Attacked by Pirates”, “The Incomplete Stable”, and “Seeking the Pirate Hideout”. Downloading the update will allow players to proceed past those points.
  • Fixed an issue preventing fairies from appearing under certain conditions when they originally should have appeared.
  • Fixed an issue preventing the meals provided by Kiana of Lurelin Village from changing under certain conditions.
  • Several issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience.

The full patch notes can also be found on Nintendo's support page.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – Previous patch notes

Before this patch, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom previously received early patches to address minor glitches and bug fixes and addressed issues concerning some quests that prevented players from progressing with story elements.

Below, we’ve broken down the full notes for previous patches:

Patch 1.1.2

While this is only a small patch intended to fix bugged quest elements and audio tweaks in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, it also seems to have fixed the rather notorious “duplication glitch”.

This glitch allowed players to duplicate multiple items, materials and weapons, as well as allowing them to fill their pockets full of Rupees (thus throwing the Hyrule economy into chaos).

Here are the full patch notes for version 1.1.2, courtesy of Nintendo's Customer Support:

Audio Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the sound would play at an extremely high volume in certain conditions.

Additional Fixes

  • Fixed an issue in the main quest, “Camera Work in the Depths”, where players could not progress beyond a certain point. Downloading the update will allow players to proceed past that point.
  • Several issues have been addressed to improve the gameplay experience.

With this patch, players will no longer have to worry about not being able to progress through a particularly important quest that helps you get the Camera and Compendium in the game.

Patch 1.1.1

  • 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.

Patch 1.1.0

  • Horse name inputs now allow for Korean, Chinese (Simplified), and Chinese (Traditional) characters.
  • If the system language is not set to Korean, Chinese (Simplified), or Chinese (Traditional), some inputted characters will not display.
  • Made other, additional fixes to allow for a more pleasing gameplay experience.
