Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom News Channel Offers Free Items Once More

Another Round of Freebies in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

We have seen so many free in-game items distributed over the past few months in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. And the good news is, it is happening again. The Switch News Channel is distributing an Octo Balloon, Rocket & Traveler’s Shield this time. The exciting part is that you can also fuse these items together and fly in the sky.

As usual, you will be able to redeem these items from the Switch News channel. But just in case you have forgotten how to do it, we have provided the steps below-

1. On your Switch Home Menu select the ‘News’ icon
2. Scroll to the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom news story “Shields – perfectly designed for…flight?!”
3. Click ‘Play Now’ within the news article
4. Boot up Zelda, load your game file
5. Receive Octo Ballon, Rocket & Traveler’s Shield

Here is what Nintendo said regarding these new freebies:

“Today we’d like to introduce you to a bit of an unusual use for shields. You might naturally think of shields as tools that help, well, shield you from enemies and attacks. But did you know that, with some out-of-the-box fusing, they can also help you get Link to all sorts of places – even up in the sky?

For example, if you fuse an Octo Balloon to a shield, you can enjoy a nice, pleasant drift (although admittedly not one that will take you very high off the ground). If you fuse a rocket to a shield, however, you can imagine that liftoff you’ll achieve is quite a lot more explosive.

Set your sights on the skies and see just how far up you can get, whether you’re aiming to climab a mountain or reach a sky island up above!”
