Capcom to release all Mega Man X games on Switch
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in News, Switch | 62 Comments
All of the Mega Man X games are coming to Switch, Capcom has announced. The eight titles will be released on Nintendo’s console during Mega Man’s 30th anniversary.
Aside from the initial announcement, no further information was provided.
Today’s news was just shared during Capcom’s 30th anniversary live stream by developer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya. We’ll let you know if anything else is announced.
Digital Foundry published a new analysis for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 today. The resolution and frame rate were both examined in-depth along with improvements from Xenoblade Chronicles X.
One thing to discuss out of the gate is Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s resolution. Ultimately, the game runs at 720p when docked. Some have thought that a dynamic resolution could be employed, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Digital Foundry believes the confusion lies in a heavy use of anti-aliasing, which can make image quality blurry.
