When the Nintendo Switch was launched, many were a little skeptical about the console’s capabilities especially given its specs which seemed like a souped up version of the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet. Then again Nintendo’s games were never really meant to be ultra realistic to begin with.
However for those who do care about performance, then you might be pleased to learn that the Switch is more than capable of handling its own. During Nintendo’s Treehouse Live Stream, the company shared a technical update about Splatoon 2 and according to one of the staff who demonstrated the game, it seems that Splatoon 2 will be capable of running at 1080p Full HD @ 60fps when docked to a TV.
That changes to 720p when undocked, which we guess has been the case with most Switch games so far. The game’s producer Hisashi Nogami confirmed that this information is correct, so it looks like gamers who are planning to get Splatoon 2 will be able to enjoy relatively crisp graphics at a buttery smooth frame rate.
Splatoon 2 is currently set for a release on the 21st of July, 2017 where it will be finding its way onto the Nintendo Switch. You can check out a demonstration of Splatoon 2 in the video above.
