It’s been quite a while since Digital Foundry investigated any of the latest Switch releases, 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 2011 Wii release thanks to the graphics and quality of life improvements. It makes the jump from a 480 output on Wii to 1080p resolution docked and 720p in handheld on the Switch. The frame rate is 60fps in most cases, excluding some more heated moments.
In addition to this, there have been improvements to texture qualities, the Wii’s “colour dithering” has been completely eliminated – enhancing the overall image quality and the loading is also highlighted as being drastically faster. We were equally as impressed.
