Another 15 minutes of footage is in showing Doom on Switch in fairly decent visual / audio quality. See the latest video below.

The first hands-on impressions for Doom on Switch were reported yesterday. One of the things we heard is that the performance is 30 frames per second.

Just in case you had any doubt, Bethesda has confirmed that the FPS count is correct. Rolling Stone obtained the following statement from the publisher:

We have a little more information about the technical performance of Doom on Switch. Polygon, who went hands-on with the game, reports that it runs at 30 frames per second. In case you’re curious, Doom is 60 frames per second on other consoles.

The site does add that “the frame rate dipped considerably” during parts of the first level. While it usually recovered, it stayed low during one occasion. But a spokesperson told Polygon that Doom is still being optimized for Switch, so hopefully everything will be cleaned up before the holiday launch.

Much in the way that Tantalus became associated with Wii U ports back in the day, Panic Button is helping to bring prominent games to Switch. Digital Foundry confirms that the studio is porting two high-profile games to Nintendo’s console. Panic Button is leading the way on both Rocket League and Doom for Switch. Psyonix and Bethesda are very much involved with the two titles respectively, but it sounds like Panic Button is primarily in charge.
