Frozenbyte says Switch is “a powerhouse”, Trine games could be ported

Posted on December 6, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Many developers have had high praise for Switch over the past few months. Frozenbyte is the latest developer sharing positive comments, as the studio recently said that the system is “a powerhouse”.

Wccftech caught up with with Frozenbyte for an interview. When asked about working with the system and getting the newly-released Nine Parchments running, the company spoke highly of the hardware and the portability.

The full comments are as follows:

“We’ve been enjoying development on Switch a lot. The architecture, documentation and everything has been very well put together, Nintendo has done a great job. Nine Parchments is quite demanding visually, so we’re running at 30fps, 1080p in docked and 720p in portable mode. The Switch is definitely a powerhouse considering its size, and the portability really works well for many games. You can even play Nine Parchments in co-op on a single Switch system where each player only uses one Joy-Con!”

Frozenbyte also fielded a comment about the possibility of Shadwen or the Trine titles seeing Switch ports, to which they replied:

“I’d say the odds are in favor of the Trine games over Shadwen definitely, but it remains to be seen. They could be a good fit so we’ll see what next year brings.”

    Interesting game, but the beam-aiming is iffy. Also there’s serious troll potential with how circle-abilities can damage/heal ally and enemy. Recommend using pre-established party of known people for it.

      but beam aiming has a soft lock now

        Care to explain? That sounds interesting, but the demo, beam aiming and potential for trolling put me off.

        • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

          in the demo there is no beam aiming soft lock, in the actual game if you attacj an enemy with a beam it will lock to always attack the enemy this was made to play with single joycons where there is no right stick but works with normal controller
