Game news Zelda: Will the Breath of The Wild sequel run on the current Nintendo Switch? Analysts doubt it

On March 29, Nintendo, which hadn’t released any news about the Breath of the Wild sequel since June 2021, formalized the game’s delay to spring 2023. A vague 2022 release date.

A postponement, but new images fueling theories

That is Eiji Aonumathe executive producer of the license of The Legend of Zelda, who has himself announced the postponement of the match on social networks and the usual distribution channels. While apologizing to the players waiting for the title this year, he explained that the teams had made the decision to extend development time to provide a relevant and meaningful experience. To illustrate the announcement, the video showed: images of the game, some of which have not been published† The ability for fans and observers to parse each plan to derive new things, which adds to the study of the first two trailers.

The most striking of these new images is the artifact equipping Link’s right arm† Golden light emanates from the artifact’s gauntlet, which then ascends around a damaged or oddly tattooed arm. An artifact no doubt reminiscent of the artifact seen in the game’s very first trailer, accompanied by a Master Sword that also appears to be compromised† It seems gnawed, which of course does not prevent it from being extremely useful.

The most recent images leave technical analysts doubting

In addition, many people had the impression, like during the second trailer released last summer, that it was quiet visually very ambitious for the Switch† In the line of sight, the appearance of the clouds and the idea of ​​a whole heavenly world to be integrated above the original playing field. The Switch has already had several versions, to be “in the middle of its existence” according to Nintendo, and many rumors that raise the possible arrival of an improved and more powerful version, we may ask ourselves: Does this Breath of the Wild sequel really run on the Nintendo Switch family currently on sale?

There is no doubt that, given the base installed, the final version will run on current consoles, but the render presented also made the journalists at Digital Foundry doubt themselves, who analyzed the recent images. For John Linneman it would be: surprising that the game as presented runs on the current Switchs. Speaking of volumetric effects and anti-aliasing, he said:

This trailer was interesting because the image quality looked pretty good I think. I was a little surprised by how sharp and bright it was compared to the original overall. It could be the next Switch, or it could just be a trailer with a higher rendering, resolution and settings.

So for the journalist of Digital Foundrywriting associated with Eurogamer and known for the quality of its technical analysis, there are two options for us: either Nintendo is preparing an improved Switch with Zelda as the figurehead, either the trailer doesn’t reflect the visual quality of the game. There have been many misleading visual display trailers throughout history, but Nintendo is clearly not one of the bad studentseven if it means quenching fan enthusiasm by revealing videos highlighting the console’s technical limits.
