Written by | Gaming, News, Nintendo

After almost 3 weeks of release, Nintendo’s Zelda team updates the game once again and this time with a more appealing fix to front-end users. The update now labeled 1.1.1 offers a vague description as to what exactly has been updated for the game. : 

Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience. Nintendo

“A pleasant gaming experience”, Nintendo claims, but users are saying that the update isn’t as small as “improvements to the game” have been for other titles, it specifically addresses the issues with the painful framerate drops that sometimes prevented you from accessing an area without it being slowed down. One area in particular that had this domino effect was the Korok Forest. Where all of the grass in particular caused framerate to drop largely. However, it appears those fixes have made the game from dropping 20fps on TV mode to an optimized 30 fps. On handheld mode, the game runs better as well. A more clear representation of this can be found in the video below by YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits:

 

For Nintendo Switch Users, the Zelda gaming experience will be one that runs a heck of a lot more smoothly. Wii U users can also expect the update to have the same effect on them as well. Let us know in the comments if the game is still dropping for you, if so, what areas in particular?
