Nintendo Switch 2 Reportedly Runs A Classic Switch Game Like You’ve Never Seen Before! [VIDEO]

TECH NEWS – The Nintendo Switch 2 is reportedly capable of running The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in 4K at 60 FPS smoothly and without loading time!



The Nintendo Switch 2 promises to be a beast of a console. Especially compared to its predecessor. According to a new report from this year’s Gamescom, the Switch 2 will be able to run The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at 60 FPS 4K. What’s more, it supports Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling technology. The upcoming console will reportedly offer a visual experience on par with the PS5 and Xbox series consoles.

Nintendo hasn’t shared any information about the new Switch yet, so these recent rumours should be treated cautiously.

The latest information about the Nintendo Switch 2 comes from YouTuber Nate the Hate. He has provided credible leaks before. This time, he’s talking about how a demo of Switch 2 was allegedly shown behind closed doors at Gamescom this year. Nintendo is said to have shown some developers at Gamescom some demos running on the Switch 2’s target hardware.

These demos reportedly included an upgraded version of Breath of the Wild and a technical demo of Matrix Unreal Engine 5 with DLSS.

Nate the Hate talked about the performance of the Nintendo Switch 2 and said that Breath of the Wild had no load times. This is surprising, considering the game was released with the original Switch. But it had long load times and sometimes other performance issues, such as frame drops. The video also points out that the game used DLSS 3.1. Instead of DLSS 3.5, as initially believed.

The video mentions The Matrix Unreal Engine 5, which is said to be running at a similar targeted spec to Switch 2. The tech demo, released in 2021 for the PS5 and Xbox Series consoles, was said to perform better on the demo device (with specs targeted for Switch 2) than the other two non-portable consoles.

The demo reportedly featured advanced ray tracing, suggesting that Epic (the maker of Unreal Engine) is working on a version of UE 5 that will run on the next-gen Switch.

This is promising news for Nintendo fans. Especially considering that Switch 2 will presumably have backwards compatibility. Apparently, the new hardware will bring a significant performance leap over its predecessor. Honestly, the predecessor is still going strong after more than six years. Nintendo has several new titles coming to Switch this year and early next year. Among them are Super Mario Bros. Wonder (20 October), a Super Mario RPG remake (mid-November) and a new WarioWare (3 November).
