Nintendo has gifted players with the next free in-game items for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, distributed through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tips from the Wild News channel on Nintendo Switch.
After the early articles had explained how you can befriend the dogs that you encounter, make Honey Candy, and throw Boomerangs, game director Hidemaro Fujibayashi has now revealed something mysterious about Bird Eggs in Link’s open-air adventure.
“Shown here in the picture is a certain spring in the Hebra region… but it isn’t just any old spring! Look closely – can you see the rising steam?” Fujibayashi asks.
“That’s right, it’s a hot spring! If Link gets wounded, he can soak his weary bones in one of these to slowly restore hearts over time. But better yet, if you put an egg in a hot spring… well, I’ll let you try it out for yourselves!
“To get you started on your road to becoming eggs-perts, please accept a free in-game gift of three Bird Eggs. Be careful though! They’re very fragile. The items will appear in your game if you open it using the link below. Just make sure that you either have the game card inserted or the downloadable version of the software installed on your console.
“As a useful aside, you might want to remember that you can buy eggs at the general store in Kakariko Village. Anyway, please enjoy cooking many eggs-cellent dishes in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild!”
Nintendo once again adds that you must have obtained the paraglider before you can receive these items and that you may not be able to receive them at some in-game locations such as shrines and dungeons or on certain terrain.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch and Wii U worldwide.
