A couple of new videos have come in for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown ahead of next week’s launch. Along with the launch trailer, we have a graphics comparison courtesy of GameXplain.

As noted in the technical analysis post, the Switch version of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown turned out very well. It’s a bit downgraded compared to other platforms, but not in an overly significant way.

Batman Arkham Trilogy graphics comparison

A new video from GameXplain offers up a new graphics comparison for the Switch release Batman: Arkham Trilogy. Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Knight are all factored in here depending on the game.

Arkham Asylum and Arkham City were always going to be easier to port over as they originally launched on the PS3 and Xbox 360 (City was also on Wii U). However, Arkham Knight is a tougher one to convert given how it first appeared on the PS4 and Xbox One. We should get more details on the technical performance once more outlets are able to go hands-on.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 graphics comparison

GameXplain put together a new Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 graphics comparison for the Switch and PS5 versions following today’s launch.

One of the biggest differences between the two concerns frame rate. While it’s 60 FPS on PS5, the Switch version brings the action down to 30 FPS. Elsewhere we see some asset changes on Switch and character models that are scaled back on Nintendo’s console.

Borderlands 3 graphics comparison

We have a couple of videos for the new Switch version of Borderlands 3, including gameplay and PS5 graphics comparison video.

Fans have been curious as to how the Switch edition would turn out given the lack of media surrounding it. There’s also been a quick turnaround from announcement to release as we only just found out that the title would be landing on Nintendo’s console a few weeks ago.

Another Code Recollection graphics comparison

A new graphics comparison from GameXplain shows how the new Switch version of Another Code: Recollection stacks up to the DS original.

The comparison specifically focuses on the first entry in the series here. Everything is now fully 3D, and exploration segments are now fully third-person. Also, as we saw in the Nintendo Direct presentation, voice acting will be included. And while it’s not covered in this specific comparison, the Wii sequel will also be a part of the package – the first time it’s getting an official release in North America.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong graphics comparison

Mario vs. Donkey Kong is back on Switch with a remake of the original GBA game, and a new graphics comparison video shows how the two versions stack up. This comes courtesy of GameXplain.

Not only did the development team update the in-game visuals, but the cutscenes as well. Although gameplay thus far seems to be largely similar to the original, it’s clear by a quick glance just how much the graphics have changed for the new Switch version.

Luigi's Mansion 2 Switch 3DS graphics comparison

Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD for Switch is going head-to-head with the 3DS original as part of a new graphics comparison video, courtesy of GameXplain.

Simply boosting the resolution is an easy win for Switch given how limited the display was on Nintendo’s older portable. Apart from that though, we’re able to see that some assets have been touched up. But other areas of the game – notably models – are very comparable to the previous 3DS edition.

Paper Mario Thousand Year Door graphics comparison

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is returning on Switch next year, and a new graphics comparison video shows how it stacks up to the original.

The first thing you’ll notice is that Nintendo has updated some assets. Textures have been enhanced for the HD era. Geometry has increased as well, which is something you can notice with certain objects like the trees. It doesn’t end there though, as with animations, some are brand new while others were updated. Other adjustments are improvements relate to the lighting, 16:9 aspect ratio (instead of 4:3), and more.

Super Mario RPG graphics comparison

Super Mario RPG will be returning later this year with a remake fit for the game’s well-regarded reputation, and a new comparison video shows how much the graphics have been updated. GameXplain put together a video showing the Switch and SNES versions side by side.

Super Mario RPG seems to have new cutscenes, but that doesn’t mean the actual gameplay has been left by the wayside. There are plenty of improvements on that front as well, from completely redone character models to full environment overhauls. Super Mario RPG did come out on the SNES close to thirty years ago, so this sort of evolution is to be expected.

Pokemon Stadium Switch N64 comparison

With Pokemon Stadium now having joined Nintendo Switch Online, GameXplain has put together a comparison video to show how this version stacks up against the N64 original from a graphics perspective.

The Switch version, like other N64 titles on the platform, does run at a higher resolution. It may also look a little brighter in some cases.
