The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild got a rare update yesterday, and according to player reports, it’s fixing the game’s frame rate drops.

Evidence has to be collected anecdotally, since Nintendo’s patch notes are pretty vague about what was actually fixed.

“Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience,” read the patch notes on Nintendo’s website. That doesn’t tell us a whole lot.

According to players, though, the update has resulted in better frame rates, especially when fighting Moblins (a known issue) and in areas with lots of grass and foliage (such as forests).

Update 1.1.1 should apply automatically if your Nintendo Switch or Wii U is connected to the Internet.
