Earlier this week, Nintendo released a demo for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity – allowing everyone to try before they buy.
Some have gone much further, putting the game’s performance under the microscope. And if the demo is anything to go by, it looks like the frame rate will be up and down like a yo-yo. VG Tech – the same YouTube channel that ran performance tests on the Pikmin 3 Deluxe demo ahead of its release has also taken a look. As you can see below, it jumps between 20-30fps:
As for the resolution, VG Tech has provided a thorough breakdown of both docked and portable 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.
Performance in portable mode is similar to docked mode. Docked mode has a longer draw distance and improved LODs compared to portable mode
It’s worth noting that this demo may not necessarily be representative of the final release, which arrives later this month on 20th November. How have you found the performance in Age of Calamity so far? Tell us down below.
