The world may not be the same as it was on the Wii U, they may have updated it to take advantage of, for instance, the much larger memory available on Switch. Wii U may be 7th gen in power, but the Switch isn't.

The game engine wasn't exactly designed to take full advantage of nVidia's Maxwell feature set.

Heck, I would be surprised if they even added NEON support in Breath of the Wild in the Switch port.

The original engine wasn't, but it will have been well over 6 years since BOTW by the time TOTK comes out, they could have worked in some updates over that time.

There's also just the higher baseline of no longer having to work within just 1GB of RAM for instance.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Will try to get it on launch, hopefully.



Life size statue at Nintendo Live 2022 in Japan gives us a good look at Link as he appears in Tears of the Kingdom.

I've gotten used to 60 fps, don't think I can go back. I hope they announce a switch pro next year or even a new nintendo. If bundled together with zelda will definitely buy.

That looks so cool! I hope we get some really cool magic to mess around with.

I hope they plan to make an amiibo based off of that.
