Zelda: Breath of the Wild patch seems to improve performance on Switch

Nintendo has released a new update for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild that improves framerate in both portable and docked mode.

Update 1.1 is available now for Nintendo’s latest Hyrulean adventure, and it should make for a smoother experience in some of the game’s more demanding areas.

As posted on Nintendo’s website, the patch does the following: “Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.”

After testing it personally, the patch does indeed improve performance in demanding areas such as Korok Forest and during more intense combat sequences.
