Digital Foundry has released a video comparison that compares The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Wii U and Nintendo Switch versions. The test was made by playing on the new Nintendo platform with both the console attached to the Dock in portable mode.
The beautiful Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available from a handful of days for Nintendo Switch and Wii U, but what are the performance of the game on both platforms? To clarify our ideas we think as always about Digital Foundry, which in a recent video has compared the two versions (video found at the bottom of the news).
Obviously the version of Nintendo Switch is definitely better from the point of view of graphics, with more particle effects, a better and a more pronounced anti-aliasing resolution. Of course it is interesting to try to understand what are the differences between the two versions.
In dock mode, the game runs at 900p on Switch while on the Wii U the resolution is always equal to 720p: in both cases the picture quality is very similar, but on both consoles occur sporadically drops and slowdown, with framerate that in the most hectic situations tends to decline by up to 20 fps.
This problem is almost completely dammed playing in portable mode on Switch, in this case the resolution will be 720p, however, the game is more fluid and less subjected to shrinkage in framerate.
Recall that The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is now available on both platforms mentioned above.
