Here’s All the Differences Between Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Switch and on Wii U

Both will run at 30fps.

Speaking with IGN, Nintendo listed out the key differences between the Switch and Wii U versions of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. As expected, all in-game content will be the same. The main differences are apparent in the game’s resolution and some in-game icons. Both versions of the game will run at 30 frames per second, however, which is a bit of a disappointment.

  • On a TV, the Nintendo Switch version of the game renders in 900p while the Wii U version renders in 720p.
  • The Nintendo Switch version has higher-quality environmental sounds. As a result, the sound of steps, water, grass, etc. are more realistic and enhance the game’s Open-Air feel.
  • The physical copy of the Wii U version will require 3GB of available memory on the Wii U system or an external drive.
  • Some icons, such as onscreen buttons, differ between the two versions.
  • A Special Edition and Master Edition of the Wii U version are not available.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is set to be released for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U on March 3.
