I wonder if the graphics and effects will improve in this next iteration. Breath of the Wild was developed primarily for Wii U hardware after all.

one would have to imagine with the game being built from the ground up for the Switch that it should look / run better.

You say the new Zelda game is being built from the ground up for the switch even though the trailer appears to indicate it's using the same old game engine. Do you have any sources for to back up your statement?

@rockwhynot - just because it uses the same art style doesn't mean that it isn't being developed on Switch hardware. Yes it might use the same engine, but that doesn't mean it can't push a higher resolution or more frames using said engine. New assets, textures, effects, etc. There is no Wii U in the equation here, so no lowest common denominator that they need to build for.

conventional dungeons, more populated world, a darker tone this time. And for the love of god, if you are going to keep weapon durability in the game, then give us a blacksmith or someone in each town that we can repair our stuff with.
