Take one look at your Nintendo Switch friend list and it’s almost guaranteed you’ll see that most folk have tried out the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity demo that released only a few days ago. If you’ve played it yourself, you may have noticed the frame rate – take a look on socials, you’ll also see that you’re not alone in thinking the action can get a little choppy. And although the demo isn’t necessarily representative of the final product, VG Tech on YouTube has recently uploaded a frame rate test video for the demo. According to their analysis, the demo runs at around 20-30fps. Time will tell if we’ll see a day one patch to improve it.
Here are the details surrounding resolutions for both docked and handheld modes:
- Docked mode uses a dynamic resolution with the highest resolution found being 1440×810 and the lowest resolution found being approximately 1013×570. Pixel counts at 1440×810 are common in docked mode. Docked mode renders the UI at 1920×1080.
- Portable mode uses a dynamic resolution with the highest resolution found being 960×540 and the lowest resolution found being approximately 676×380. Pixel counts at 960×540 are common in portable mode. Portable mode renders the UI at 1280×720.
