Switch

Activision and Bungie have no plans to make a Switch version of Destiny 2.

IGN asked project lead Mark Noseworthy about the possibility, who initially said Bungie has “no announcements to make about the Switch at this time”. IGN then pressed further and asked if the franchise could eventually end up on Switch.

Noseworthy said in response:

Digital Foundry is back with another in-depth technical analysis. Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition is the focus this time around.

Minecraft does indeed run at 720p on Switch regardless of it being docked or undocked. However, 4J Studios once again confirmed to Digital Foundry that the team is looking into the situation and the game could see an increase to 1080p docked in the future with an update.

Nintendo UK uploaded a brief promo / commercial for Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers under the name “Relive The Legend”. View it below.

You can now download the Disgaea 5 Complete demo on the European eShop. If you have been waiting for this region’s demo then now is your chance to try it out. The demo for North America is already available.

Frozenbyte’s YouTube channel has just shown off Nine Parchments for the Nintendo Switch. The game will be coming sometime in 2017. Check out their announcement video below.
