It’s been a while since Digital Foundry investigated a Nintendo Switch release, but now John Linneman is back to see how. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD holds up.
He describes it as “more than just a remaster” of the original version of the Wii 2011 thanks not only to the improved graphics, but also to the quality of life improvements. The game goes from 480p output on Wii to 1080p on dock and 720p on handheld on Switch. The frame rate is 60 fps in most cases except for some hotter times.
On top of that, improvements have been made to texture qualities, the Wii’s ‘color dithering’ has been completely eliminated – improving the overall picture quality, and loading is also highlighted as being considerably more. fast. We were equally impressed. Nintendo has also managed to keep the original look of the assets while providing higher resolution.
