Posted on 4 years ago by Fernando in Switch, Videos | 18 Comments
Digital Foundry has uploaded a new video showing how Super Bomberman R on Switch manages to get a stable 60 frames per second with the new version 1.3 patch.
Apparently, in order to stabilize the game at 60 FPS, Konami has dropped the resolution and Super Bomberman R runs at 720p in Battle Mode while docked. While playing portably, the image quality also takes a dip to 540p. The Story Mode retains the original resolution of 1080p docked and 720p portable, now with an uncapped frame rate of roughly 45 FPS.
Here’s the analysis:

[Review] Puyo Puyo Tetris

Release date: April 25, 2017
Developer: SEGA / Sonic Team
Puyo Puyo Tetris – a crossover of Puyo Puyo and Tetris – has been around in Japan since 2014, having released on just about every platform. With the Switch version as a Japanese launch title, it’s finally getting localized, albeit two months late. It goes without saying that Tetris is well known in the west with its release on every platform imaginable, though SEGA’s Puyo Puyo series is far less renowned internationally as it is in Japan. The last time a Puyo Puyo game saw an official international release was on GameCube in 2004.

For Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Nintendo addressed the situation entirely, and the racer is now at a silky smooth 60 frames per second. GameXplain takes a closer look below.
