Nintendo is really on a roll with the free goodies they are handing out for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you check out the news section on your Nintendo Switch today, you will find a note from director Hidemaro Fujibayashi which gives you details about cooking dishes which boost your attacks.
If you read through all the note you will learn all the ingredients to make a mighty salt-grilled crab. This tasty dish is made up of: Razorclaw Crab, Mighty Porgy, Mighty Bananas, and Rock Salt.
There are a few disclaimers at the bottom about not being able to receive this gift without the paraglider and also it will not be available in certain areas, so it is well worth reading through the whole note to get yourself completely up to speed.
Let us know what you think about this culinary delight with a comment below.
Yay? I shouldn't complain I guess, free is free.
Nothing for Wii U owners again.
Salt grilled Crab ?
Is that recipe after some Updates ?
These little “gifts” are essentially worthless in all contexts, but had they introduced the service back when the game first launched, I think more people would’ve had a chance to enjoy them. Now the dedicated players of the game have finished it and put it away. Based on the fact that these posts can be opened again and again to receive the items, I am certain that nothing valuable will ever be distributed through this service.
@SLIGEACH_EIRE So how long are you going to play this schtick? Because you know what else Wii U owners didn't get, Mario Odyssey. Yep it was secretly a Wii U game that was ported. How else did they get it on the Switch so quickly. Same for Arms, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. With MK8D Nintendo figured, hey just about everyone purchased it (and the console) the first time around, maybe lightening can strike again and we can get up to 15 M units old in 3+ years.
@thesilverbrick Breath of the Wild is still regularly a top seller, so there is still a fairly decent influx of new players coming to the game. While those of us that purchased early have no need (and let's be honest it isn't exactly difficult to find any of the "gifts"), those new players get something interesting.
Great for folks who are new adopters but a bit useless for people who've completed it.
@Darknyht I’m aware that new people are buying the game, but let’s face it, BoTW’s big spotlight moment has passed. Far more people could’ve enjoyed this feature if it was launched alongside the game. It’s really not a big deal in the long run, since nothing really valuable will be offered through it, though.
And I’m not sure if your comment about Mario Odyssey is sarcastic or not, but you do realize that just because a game launches early on a console it doesn’t mean it was planned for its predecessor first. By that logic, Mario 64 must’ve been planned as a Super Nintendo game, because they got it out so quickly on the Nintendo 64. New hardware development begins as soon as the previous console hits the market. The Switch has been in development since shortly after the Wii U debuted, and they almost certainly began development on the launch window games shortly afterwards.
But you may have just been being sarcastic. In that case, I digress.
@Darknyht Don't feed the troll, he knows perfectly well that the dish can be cooked on the Wii U version of the game and yet he complains about a completely innocent feature like the News section. There's no hope
@gortsi It's almost like we know what he's going to post before he posts it...
@thesilverbrick I still play breath of the wild. I'm trying find and beat all the shrines on master difficulty. I already beat the main quest. Defeating Ganon. I want to find all the grabs and shrines. I heard there's an ultimate shrine once all the others are found.
how about free gifting us that DLC 2
@SLIGEACH_EIRE Get a Switch.
@AlternateButtons The DLC is coming, and many people will revisit the game. But the items given out with these posts aren’t particularly helpful or valuable to anyone who has already defeated Ganon.
@AlternateButtons Yes, but these tips would’ve been infinitely more useful to a far larger group of people seven months ago.
@SLIGEACH_EIRE You don't need a Salt-Grilled Crab. You've got too much salt already.
As someone who just purchased the Wii U version, I am kind of bummed to hear that this feature has been excluded. That just seems odd to me given that Nintendo plans to release the DLC for Wii U.
@thesilverbrick Yes that was sarcasm. I figured the MK8D part would tip most off. However it wouldn't surprise me much to find that Mario Odyssey development started right after Super Mario 3D World was released as the open world Super Mario game of the Wii U.
