    I have a switch on 2.3 I was wondering if there is a way to update the game without updating the switch. If I can't no big deal just craving some Zelda "stability"

    Sadly No. Updating any game will require a system update

    Buy a Switch but emulate Switch games on PC. Amazing logic.

    Cemu is an emulator for Wii U and its possible to play BotW with full updates and DLC best than switch, for example 4k resolution and high quality shadows

    Buy a Switch but emulate Wii U versions of Switch games on PC. Amazing logic.

    The point stays the same.

    Well you're not helping either.
    Op is asking how to update BotW to play it on the switch, you're saying not to play it on the switch.

    He only has 2 options towards his question the logic here is you can't update Switch games without updating the system if on a lower FW
    It doesn't help his question in need b/c it can't be done, but there are alternatives to get the same results.
    1. Spend $300+ to buy another Switch just to play updated games
    2. Play BOTW on Cemu with all DLC and updates - at least it's better than buying a dead console just to play 1 game i'd say
    But that's the major drawback of having a Switch on lower FW's don't expect Game updates, Newer titles or DLC support

    My last post was not an answer for Op (to which I have already given an answer) but for sarkwalvein

    You have to spend money on a Wii U and the graphics quality would be much worse.

    Just update the switch. Or just don't play updated BotW.
    Simple as that. You can't get the best of both worlds at the same time, learn to deal with it.

    Wii U and Switch both use 1080p on the tv but the switch off tv outputs at 720p the Wii U uses 480p off tv so i guess your half right.

    As I said, it's possible to add a lot of "upgrade" like 4K resolution, high quality shadows and 60 fps.

    why would i tell you stalkers where i live?
    For lots of us (including me), it would cost more to buy another switch with bots than to buy/build a PC that can handle botw

    wait did i miss something or do people think botw was made for switch originally? if i recall it was scaled back because the wiiU ver and switch ver needed to be the same otherwise the switch ver would be different.
