Nintendo has finally given out the full description of differences between the Switch and Wii U version of Breath of the Wild, courtesy of IGN.

Here’s a the full list of similarities and differences:

  • Both launch on the same day, March 3.
  • Both have a frame rate of 30fps.
  • Both versions of the game offer the same content.
  • On a TV, the Nintendo Switch version of the game renders in 900p while the Wii U version renders in 720p.
  • The Nintendo Switch version has higher-quality environmental sounds. As a result, the sound of steps, water, grass, etc. are more realistic and enhance the game’s Open-Air feel.
  • The physical copy of the Wii U version will require 3GB of available memory on the Wii U system or an external drive.
  • Some icons, such as onscreen buttons, differ between the two versions.
  • A Special Edition and Master Edition of the Wii U version are not available.

Probably the biggest differences are the 900p vs 720p output for the Switch and Wii U respectively and the fact that 3GB of space are needed in order to use the physical copy of Breath of the Wild for the Wii U.
