Reports suggest that “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” can be played on Nintendo Switch for up to three hours on a single charge. If outside, the console could be charged by plugging the AC adapter into the USB Type-C connector. The Switch has 32GB of internal storage, expandable via microSDXC card. The top of the device has a slot where game cards can be dropped.

It is comforting news for many that “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” will be released along with the Nintendo Switch console on March 3. Reports late last year suggested localisation issues may push back the release of the game. According to The Verge, not much is known about the game that was originally announced as a late Wii U title in 2013. The game did not receive an official name until E3 2016 after Nintendo showed a playable demo to its fans.

“The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” on Nintendo Switch will be different with a unique experience. Not unlike the role-playing games of yesteryears, the game will have an open-world design and will deviate from the “Zelda” formula. The game will feature the supposed princess, the goddess-imbued pieces of a triangular artefact and also the evil incarnate Calamity Ganon. The game has two different resolutions and the Switch is a significant improvement from the E3 2016 Wii U build that had serious performance problems.

On a big screen, “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” runs at 900p on the Nintendo Switch and when undocked, it runs at 720p. In both the modes, the game holds 30fps except a few dips during heavy-duty alpha and post-processing effect situations and streaming problems, reports VG24/7. Critics have revealed that the game is incredibly crisp in both the modes and runs super-smooth.

More and more blockbuster titles such as “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” are required for Nintendo Switch. Even though the console has got the go-ahead from harshest of critics, lack of games in its library is a major turn-off. Stay tuned on IBT AU for more updates on Nintendo Switch and “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.”
