Zelda on Switch

The Nintendo Switch is in the hands of various game and tech websites around the world, and we’re finally learning more about the newest Nintendo system. One question many have had about the Switch since its announcement is how the long the system’s battery life will hold up. Nintendo has given it’s own estimation of two-and-a-half to over six hours, while The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is cited to last at a maximum of three hours. Gamexplain has decided to take things even further by testing Breath of the Wild with the Switch in portable mode at maximum settings including brightness, volume and wi-fi on. The result just barely reaches Nintendo’s own estimations, but check out the video below for more specific details.
