How does the Nintendo Switch’s graphics compare to the Wii U? Let’s find out!
Everyone wants to know more about the graphical capabilities of the Nintendo Switch, especially since the upcoming Legend of Zelda title will be on both the Switch and the Wii U. Breath of the Wild probably should have been a Wii U game to begin with, but they instead held it off to help sell their next console. Is it really that big of an improvement? I checked out a bunch of different sources and compiled them here for you to take a look and decide how important getting a Switch is, especially if you are buying it for Breath of the Wild.
First, we have GameXplain showing us The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, comparing it with gameplay footage shown at E3 2016. The biggest difference is certainly the lighting and textures, but anti-aliasing still seems to be a bit of an issue for the Switch.
IGN did their own version as well, which shows a side by side comparision and goes back and forth between the differences in real time.
Nintendo World Report TV also sized up Mario Kart 8 against the new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. There are some technical differences shown in this video, as well as some other interesting tidbits these folks found.
One can not deny that there are some differences, but is it enough to sell a system during launch? That is up to your wallets to decide!
