Towards the end of 2017, Zen Studios said that a patch would be created to improve Pinball FX3’s performance on Switch. It was intended to have the game running at 60 frames per second in handheld mode will increasing docked resolution to 1080p.

The situation changed earlier this month when Zen Studios noted that plans had been abandoned for the Switch patch. It was decided after determining that the team would need to “recreate every table from the bits to achieve this quality.”

Zen Pinball spoke about a performance patch for Pinball FX3 on Switch a few months ago. The plan was to get the game running at 60 frames per second during portable play, and to hopefully increase docked resolution to 1080p.

New content is arriving in Pinball FX3. Starting on February 20, players will be able to purchase Jurassic World Pinball. The DLC encompasses three tables inspired by the events of the Jurassic World and Jurassic Park films.
