At a glance, both framerate and resolution leave something to be desired, which is sadly common for Warriors series games on the Nintendo Switch. According to a new video analysis shared by VG Tech on YouTube, the framerate is almost never stable, constantly floating between 20 and 30 FPS.

Things are not any better on the resolution front. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity employs dynamic resolution in both docked and undocked mode, with the highest resolution being 1440×810 and the lowest a measly 1013×570. The former, thankfully, is more common than the latter, but it will be impossible not to notice how blurry everything looks, especially on bigger screens.

Resolutions in undocked mode in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity don’t fare much better. The highest resolution is 960×540 in the demo, while the lowest 676×380. Performance seems to be identical to docked mode.

Even though Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity may not be a technical feat, the game still promises to be tons of fun, combining the hack and slash experience of the Warriors series with mechanics inspired by Breath of the Wild and a big playable cast. To learn how much the fun will last in the game, we will have to wait until November 20.
