The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 reignites Nintendo Switch Pro rumors



The trailer for the Breath of the Wild sequel may confirm a new Nintendo Switch model.

On March 29, the producer of the series ZeldaEiji Aonuma, announced that the highly anticipated sequel to Breath of the Wild would ultimately not be released this year, but in the spring of 2023.

Certain disappointment for fans of the series, but this press release will also have been accompanied by some new images of the game to the delight of the theoreticians who had a field day.

And this time, the game not only has the right to theories on its possible narrative framework, but also on its support. According to some fans, the first images shared by Nintendo would indeed be far too successful to shoot on the current model of the Switch console, even OLED.

Anyway, that’s what I seem to think. DigitalFoundry, specialist in technical analysis of video games and their trailers. In a recent video posted on their YouTube channelexperts analyzed the recent trailer for the upcoming Zelda and came to some conclusions based on the game’s visuals.

For them, certain clues seem to clearly prove that the game runs on more powerful hardware than Nintendo currently offers. The volumetric clouds as well as the antialiasing present in the images of the game are effects which they describe as difficult to execute, even on a platform like the Xbox Series X.

Two conclusions can therefore be drawn from these observations. The most likely option is for Nintendo to follow the industry fad of “booster” the graphics in the trailers to make players want to return to simpler graphics adapted to the platform when the game is released. Or else, this trailer is a first glimpse of the power of the hypothetical and yet highly anticipated”Nintendo Switch Pro which is constantly talked about.

At the time, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild which was to be a Wii U exclusive ended up spearheading the release of the Nintendo Switch. Thus, it would not be surprising to see its sequel serve as a launch game for the new Nintendo Switch model which will eventually happen one day if the Japanese manufacturer wants to stay in the race for next-gen consoles.
