DigitalFoundry investigates ARMS’ resolution and frame rate
Posted 1 week ago by Fernando in News, Switch | 17 Comments
Thanks to a special European hands-on event, DigitalFoundry has uploaded a new video analysis in which we can take a closer look at how ARMS performs when running on Switch.
Apparently, ARMS will run at a stable 60 FPS in all types of available playstyles, but the 1080p resolution will drop to 900p if we play a 2 or 4-player splitscreen match. Sadly, in 4-player multiplayer the frames per second will be reduced to 30 FPS in order to maintain a good playing flow.
Check out the video below to see for yourselves how good ARMS is looking.
Update: Added in additional details below.

You can buy the box of the Splatoon 2 Switch bundle by itself in Japan
Posted 1 week ago by Matt in News, Switch | 9 Comments
Well, I was only joking about it before, but it seems like Japan’s fervor for Splatoon really does know no bounds. You actually can buy just the box of the Splatoon 2 Switch bundle by itself on the Japanese My Nintendo store – literally just the box with no contents, not the game nor the Switch console. Accordingly, it only costs 540 Yen.
We’re still two months away from Splatoon 2’s release, but we already know the game’s file size – at least the one of the Japanese version, though other language versions shouldn’t be drastically different. A listing of the download version of the game on Amazon Japan has revealed that Splatoon 2 will require 5.5GB of space on your Switch.
