Earlier this week, Nintendo released a new update for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Apart from making the Switch game compatible with the Labo VR Goggles, version 1.6.0 fixed “some other issues” to improve the overall experience.
It turns out the load times in the Switch version are now nearly in line with the game on the Wii U. Shrines, for example, take five seconds less to load. YouTuber and speedrunner Alexis de Champris uploaded a before and after comparison video on Twitter to highlight this. See for yourself below:
Even though the tests were conducted with a physical copy of the game, at this point the speedrunner is confident the Switch and Wii U load times are “almost” even. A fellow speedrunner backed up these claims, saying how there was “noticeably less overworld lag” when moving about using special glitches and game exploits.
The load times in Super Mario Odyssey have also reportedly been sped up following its recent update.
Have you noticed improved loading in Breath of the Wild? How about Odyssey? Tell us down in the comments.
