Comparative video Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Breath of the Wild demonstrates improvements and some disadvantages
The first comparative video of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom vs Breath of the Wild, which compares the visual effects and performance of both games.
After the reviews of the long -awaited continuation of the game appeared, we had the first video of comparison of the technical characteristics, which shows how Tears of the Kingdom and its prequel Breath of the Wild, released in 2017, work for Nintendo Switch. As you already guessed, this video posted Elanalistadebits and demonstrates both improvements and disadvantages of Tears of the Kingdom compared to Breath of the Wild.
As can be seen from this comparative video, Tears of the Kingdom operates in dynamic 900p mode in dock-mode and in dynamic mode 720p in portable mode. As already noted in our review, there are some of the failures of the frequency of personnel (up to 20 frames per second), when Switch has large tasks in areas with a high graphic load. It is interesting to note that in Tears of the Kingdom Nintendo, it seems to eliminate the problems of stuttering that were present in some places Breath of the Wild.
In addition, in Tears of the Kingdom, the distance of the drawing in the shadows decreased, and the level of detail of vegetation and geometry has slightly improved slightly. Also, the boot time was improved when moving fast, but Breath of the Wild benefits from a faster load when starting the game. Interestingly, Breath of the Wild also has additional grass density in some areas compared to Tears of the Kingdom.
- In Totk, the sun changed its position. The total lighting was retouched and improved.
- Some areas are almost unrecognizable compared to BOTW, given the large number of added assets and new structures.
- Some textures are improved.
- The lower grass density in some areas compared to BOTW.
- The faster boot time in TotK with fast movement, but faster in BOTW when starting the game.
- Improved water quality and spray.
- In general, Totk is one of the most technically worthy games that I saw on Switch. However, performance at certain points greatly spoils the impression of the game.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom comes out tomorrow all over the world for Switch. But two more weeks before the launch, it leaked to the network and became available for emulation on the PC, after which Nintendo took steps to block emulators.
