    That trailer is absolutely fantastic. May have just sold the Switch for me on that alone.

    Resolution and frame rate would likely be the biggest ones. You'd more than likely have a greater draw distance on the switch as well as having more on the screen at once, because it should have more processing power.

    I've Zelda pre ordered now from Amazon for the Wii U. At this moment, I don't think I'll get a Switch at launch. That could change. It's such a big game and it does look and will perform better on Switch. Still I'm looking at €46 versus €400+.

    I swear to god if it's Ocarina of Time Link waking up, I'd be way too happy.

    Also, where is everyone ordering their copies? I'm looking at trying to order the special edition myself since Europe isn't getting the Master one supposedly. Do Nintendo.co.uk mind Parcel Motel I wonder? :o

    Very much so. I tried ordering a special edition 3DS only available on Nintendo.co.uk and they wouldn't ship it because they don't do PO Boxes.

    Defiantly much clearer on the switch. Cleaner and better lighting.

    Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 1080p on Switch / 720p on Wii U, faster loading times on Switch

    This information comes from Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma…

    “I think I mentioned this during E3, but the gameplay is completely the same experience on Wii U and the Nintendo Switch. The game controls for the two are pretty much identical. However, when you play in TV mode, the resolution of the screen and the sound quality go up. When I said earlier that the gameplay and game experience is the same, I meant the framerate is the same as well.”

    – 1080p on Switch
    – 720p on Wii U
    – Switch will have faster loading times because it’s much easier to pull data from a game card than from a disc
    – Won’t have to wait long to play when they start up Breath of the Wild on Switch

    “The world in Breath of the Wild is all seamless. There’s a lot of processing when [the game] needs to recreate the landscape, so that’s a little bit of challenge. But while you’re playing it there’s no difference whatsoever between the two.” – Miyamoto

    Cleaner, more detail, but not €400+ more :D

    Maybe they're aiming for the people who upgraded from PS4 to PS4 Pro. :)

    I know they have to sell the Switch and are using Zelda to do it, but this reminds me of an ad for a cleaning product.
    2015: Buy our new product. It's the best and eliminates 99.9% of germs and makes everything look nice and new.
    2016: Buy our new prduct. While all other products available right now, including our own from last year, only kills 30% of germs and leaves a mess behind on everything, this one kills 99.9% of germs and makes everything look nice and new

    I've the special edition preordered from the Ninty U.K. Store, what's this about the legendary edition...is it available in the eu?

    Edit - I see the Ninty uk store one is the one with the master sword and cd, so I guess that's the legendary edition?

    Also, are there special editions for Wii u coming?

    the EU version is missing the map the coin and carry case I believe.
    and it seems only standard disk for the WiiU

    So I pre-ordered this with the Switch today in gamestop. When I asked how much both versions were, I was told:

    Standard Edition (Switch) - 75 euro
    Limited Edition (Switch) - 130 euro

    I can't get over the price of the limited edition! Really, all that's extra is the (presumably hollow) master sword statue, and CD included. I think I'd rather buy the Wii U version with the extra 75 saved from the standard edition instead.

    the limited edition should be 80 euro max
    I was put off it after seeing it being unboxed on IGN .
    looking at about 40 Euro for WiiU version verse games stop price of 130
    for the statue edition.

    how much was the blue shell Mario kart 8 set at launch
