The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is largely considered a great game, but it is not without its share of glitches. Many of these bugs have been cool or mysterious, but one YouTube content creator recently discovered a glitch that could be way more useful to players, as it lets Link gain duplicate versions of his items without end. That sure makes the issue of breakable weapons or hunting down hundreds of Korok Seeds seem much less intimidating!

The classic game over has long been a staple of the Super Mario series, even if in recent adventures, players had had no need for all the extra 1-Up mushrooms they came across in their journey.

At Nintendo's latest investor meeting, one investor asked whether Nintendo has thought about distributing these games publicly. Senior Executive Officer Satoshi Yamato responded, and though he neglected to answer specifically whether these Game Boy Advance games will make it to the 3DS' public Virtual Console space, he did offer a glimpse into how Nintendo may distribute classic games in the future.

However, this may be changing soon.
