This Is How The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Is Different On Nintendo Switch Than Wii U
If you've been deciding whether to get a Nintendo Switch, you need to see this.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is due out for the Nintendo Switch as well as the older Wii U. And it's not just the prices of the games and console which will vary.
If you’re debating buying a Nintendo Switch based on the fact you could own Zelda on the Wii U anyway, these differences are a must-know.
On the Wii U, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be shown at 720p resolution on TV, while the Nintendo Switch will play the game at 900p.
There will also be a variation in sound for the games. The Switch version should have better audio that creates a more immersive experience. Nintendo says the Switch will feature “higher quality environmental sounds”. Ninty goes on: “As a result, the sound of steps, water, grass, etc. are more realistic and enhance the game's Open-Air feel."
Other than the sounds and visual variants the other changes between the Wii U and the Switch are minimal. The Switch version will launch with Special and Master Editions, each with varying physical collectibles. Also there will be slightly different icon buttons ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Both games will run at 30fps but the Wii U version will require a hefty 3GB of available memory to run.
