You may recall that a few days ago, some technologists at Digital Foundry speculated that the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild might not run on the Nintendo Switch, but the hardware might be more powerful.
Well, some analysts are now looking at the same gameplay trailer as Digital Foundry, and they’ve joined the debate.For example, Dr Serkan Toto said: “I personally think that [Digital Foundry is] Making a good case here, I’m betting not my life but a fortune that next year’s BOTW 2 release will be accompanied by a new/upgraded Switch”. However, Dr Toto also stated “I’m sure Nintendo will ensure that BOTW 2’s performance is sufficient for existing Switch owners to enjoy.”
Meanwhile, George Jijiashvili said: “We can speculate all day, but there’s no question that Nintendo wants to have BOTW 2 on as many Switch consoles as possible. Restricting BOTW 2 to Switch 2 owners wouldn’t make any business sense. “.
So, will The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 release alongside its Switch successor? Dr Serkan Toto said: “I don’t think it’s the Switch 2, but the look of the Mystery Pro [model] It makes more sense to support BOTW 2’s launch”. As for George Gigashvili, he said: “We know that Nintendo won’t shy away from postponing the game if it doesn’t feel it’s ready. Therefore, we can’t completely rule out the possibility of BOTW 2 being released at the same time as Switch 2, if the game continues to be delayed like Metroid Prime 4.
