We’ve seen a few videos comparing the performance of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s before and after the new 1.1.1 patch came out last week. Digital Foundry now has its own video up as well, and explores both versions of the game – Switch and Wii U.

We once again see that Zelda has been given a noticeable boost on Switch. On Wii U though, the improvements aren’t quite as pronounced.

Here’s the full analysis:

Rounding out our video coverage of LEGO City Undercover’s new Switch version is an hour of gameplay. Take a look at the video from Nintendo World Report below.

LEGO City Undercover

With LEGO City Undercover releasing on Switch today, Warner Bros. prepared a launch trailer for the game. You can watch it below.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This week, Famitsu is publishing an interview with some of the developers behind The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Director Hidemaro Fujibayashi and series producer Eiji Aonuma spoke about the game in-depth, among others. Ahead of the magazine’s official release tomorrow, some tidbits from the interview have appeared online.

First, Famitsu asks about how Nintendo settled on Ganon’s role in the game. Zelda was given a fairly deep portrayal, but Ganon only exists as a calamity. Fujibayashi responded by saying that, role-wise, it was unnecessary for him to be personified. If he talks, then his background would need to be shown and that would only be an obstruction in the game. That’s why Ganon is shaped as it is.

Japanese teardown firm Fomalhaut published a new article about Switch on Nikkei Technology. While a subscription is required to access the full piece, we do have an early tidbit.

Fomalhaut estimates that Switch’s manufacturing cost is $257. Additionally, the company speculates that the system could sell 30 million units by the end of 2018.

We finally have a good look at LEGO City Undercover’s co-op gameplay on Switch thanks to a few minutes of footage from Nintendo World Report. Check it out below.

Ahead of its release tomorrow, French YouTube channel Le Creeper Gamer has another 26 minutes of footage up from LEGO City Undercover on Switch. Watch the gameplay below.

Back in February, Nintendo revealed the Diadema Amphitheater stage for Splatoon 2. The series’ official Tumblr page updated today with a final English name for the level: Starfish Mainstage.

We have the following overview:

“This is Starfish Mainstage. It’s an outdoor music venue that hosts concerts for all types of music acts. The now legendary ‘Squid Squad’ played here once, and its considered a bit of a holy site for devotees of rock music. It’s a wonder that all the ink spray doesn’t cause the equipment to short circuit, but I guess they’ve got it figured out.”

In case you missed it, below are a few screenshots showing Starfish Mainstage:
