Now Playing: GS News Update: Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Has A Crappy Reward For Finding All 900 Korok Seeds

Items called Korok seeds are scattered throughout The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In addition to exchanging them for increased inventory space, collecting all 900 earns you a special reward.

Reddit user xFateAwaitsx achieved this seemingly impossible task and discovered that the reward may not be what you expect. Scroll down to find out what it is (via Kotaku).

The character Hestu gives you "Hestu's Gift." Its official description reads, "A gift of friendship given to you by Hestu. It smells pretty bad." As you can see in the image here on Reddit, it is shaped like (and may actually be) poop.

xFateAwaitsx said it was a pain to find all 900 seeds. The last one took him "an hour or two" to find, so you can only imagine how long the entire process took.

The golden poop item doesn't do anything significant, apparently, though you can reportedly use it to make Hestu do a dance of your choosing. As of Tuesday evening, xFateAwaitsx claims to have played Breath of the Wild for 172 hours on Wii U.

Breath of the Wild was released on March 3 as a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. It sold well, as Nintendo said it was the best-selling non-bundled launch title for any Nintendo system ever.

GameSpot's Breath of the Wild review scored it a 10/10.

"It's a game that allows you to feel gradually more and more empowered yet simultaneously manages to retain a sense of challenge and mystery--which, together, creates a steady, consistent feeling of gratification throughout the entire experience," reviewer Peter Brown said. "Breath of the Wild is a defining moment for The Legend of Zelda series, and the most impressive game Nintendo has ever created."
