A lot has been talked about the huge necessity of a Switch Pro or Switch 2 nowadays, not because of sales but because of the already clear lack of power the Switch suffers today, which has become more evident than ever before. Tons of middle range games not running smoothly on the console, cloud versions being released for heavy titles and AAA not being released at all are the biggest evidence. And after a lot of good games have been heavily affected and even having lower grades when compared to previous games that scored way higher, I fear this might happen to ToTK. BoTW already suffered a lot at launch with the Switch being a newly released device with frame rate drops and pop-ups, Bayonetta 3 runs bad and got a meta score of 86 after being a 90+ and GoTY-nominated series. The new Pokemon not only ran bad but also was full of bugs.
ToTK is set for release this May after delays and delays, people is desperate for Zelda after 7 years, Nintendo needs a heavy hitter to revert the decline of Switch sales and I feel everything is set for disaster. I'm afraid the game will release with heavy frame rate drops and playability issues which will drop a potential 95+ score to less than 90 and make the game pass unnoticed while drawing comparisons to Cyberpunk which was not a bad game by any means but unplayable with current hardware. It would also help Nintendo to "sell" a new device by saying "the best ToTK experience" can be obtained with our new model.
IDK. What are your thoughts on this.
