Nintendo has revealed to IGN the key differences between The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Wii U.
There’s some pretty key differences between the two consoles:
- On a TV, the Nintendo Switch version of the game renders in 900p while the Wii U version renders in 720p.
- The Nintendo Switch version has higher-quality environmental sounds. As a result, the sound of steps, water, grass, etc. are more realistic and enhance the game’s Open-Air feel.
- Some icons, such as onscreen buttons, differ between the two versions.
- A Special Edition and Limited Edition of the Wii U version are not available.
It doesn’t appear that there’s any content specific to the Nintendo Switch version, which is great news.
