For anyone wondering how to fix blurry textures in Tears of the Kingdom, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Tears of the Kingdom is the latest release in the Legend of Zelda series. It is the sequel to Breath of the Wild and, with the positive reviews already flooding in, it’s easy to see why it was so hotly anticipated. In this new adventure, Link will have new abilities (Ultrahand or Fuse, anyone?) and will explore new maps in the sky and on land. With all that on offer, the last thing anyone wants is to have the gameplay experience interrupted with blurry textures. So, are there any fixes?

Let’s get into it.

Fixes for blurry textures in Tears of the Kingdom

The good news, is thatTears of the Kingdom uses AMD FSR (Fidelity Super Resolution) technology when docked. This is technology from AMD that upscales resolution, without dropping FPS, through the power of AI. FSR is AMD’s answer to Nvidia’s DLSS. It’s an extraordinary step-forward in high FPS, high resolution gaming. If you play in docked mode, then Tears of the Kingdom utilises this amazing AI.

Increase resolution in docked mode

Once in docked mode, then Tears of the Kingdom will be using FSR. However, it may be worth checking that you’ve got your TV set to a higher resolution setting. Fortunately, this is easy.

  1. Go to Home screen > System Settings > TV Output > TV resolution.
  2. Make sure your resolution settings are as high as you want them.
  3. Press A.

As you’ve now entered into a higher resolution, and the technology certainly supports that move, then the blurry textures you were experiencing on handheld should be dealt with.
