Observing the footage from BoTW, the difference is negligible at best.

That's assuming BOTW is the peak of the Switch's potential.

It likely isn't.

It was developed for the U and ported to the switch, it likely isn't the best it can do.

It's not a big jump, but it exists. Keep in mind we're also comparing a home console to a tablet here... which is the Switch's selling point.


Was just going to suggest comparing Splatoon 1 & 2. Both games look extremely similar, but when you look closely, you can see Splatoon 2 looks better.

It's capable of better graphics than Wii U, yes, but you probably won't notice much difference.

I can't really tell yet. The Switch may look a little better, but not significantly. I don't know. I'm just thankful that Switch games are cartridges, because cartridges last forever (at least for me so far) and you can't scratch them and they don't rot (at least for me so far). I know people will disagree. This is why I'm loving collecting for the Switch right now.

I mean, Resident Evil and Mario Kart 8's going from 720p to 1080p immediately sinks any notion that nothing was gained; that's not a Gamecube -> Wii jump.

We probably just won't see much for it, given Nintendo and their fellows will be perfectly content to keep producing Wii U-esque assets and, in the usual cases, prioritize frame rate over resolution. Depending on whether or not we get another Zelda, Bayonetta 3 may well be the only game the thing gets that will have a chance to highlight the gap.

The U definately can't either.

Using that same logic:
3DS can't handle the Ice Climbers in Smash so obviously it's not more powerful than the N64.
