    So I noticed while playing botw on my switch. That the main area where I get fps drop is in Korok Forest. It has to be going down at least by 10fps. Is this just for me, or is it the same for other people too? I mean I can deal with it in that area, but still, it gets annoying sometimes.

    Yep it gets pretty bad in that area. Worst in the game.

    You wanted to see where I live? You stalker...
    Considering there is a lot of foliage and stuff there, I'm not surprised.

    Try changing your Switch's resolution to 720p.

    The OP never said if they were playing docked or undocked.

    So far when docked. Haven't bothered to go to Korok Forest when in handheld. So I'll try it later.

    In handheld mode, it's somewhat better. Still some drops in the forest, but still better than being docked.

    Doesn't the game run in a fixed 900p resolution undocked (what a weird resolution, by the way)?

    I'm one of the very few to not have this issue. Everyone seems to be voting yes

    I read an article saying that it runs in 1080p docked and an upscaled 720p (900p) undocked. I dunno though.

    I've not experienced it on the Wii U version. Actually, the only time I experienced the slightest bit of frame drop was when I was traversing the Akala tower, and I assume that was a result of all the Calamity goo and particle effects all over the place.

    Nah, there's already some analysis done by some people that the game runs at 900p docked and 720p undocked.

    These fps drops seem to be common but I do not have them either and I know the wifi can effect it on switch but my wifi has been connected since i got it out of the box. It's a Zelda bug or firmware issue.

    I'd be willing to bet you do. It's too common of a problem to be a bug. It's just th awful porting at work.

    There are people that believe Dark Souls 3 on the One doesn't experience frame drops.. So...

    I may have fps drops but they are not noticeable at all. I don't care for dark souls so not sure what you are talking about with that.

    I'm saying that some people are adamantly sure they don't experience frame drops and all of this other fun stuff.

    Not you, either. Just a note.

    Right above you ;p

    Dark souls is a prime example as it fits in here. I don't believe that not everyone is experiencing the frame drops in a such a heavily rendered area.
