I wonder if it will feature Switch linked play without connecting online.

very very unlikely imo



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

If only this was a thing two years ago, then I would be genuinely excited... :/

Hey! Why don't you wanna play this fresh new title! you know it did win the game of the year award right? .... in.... 2016, that's only 3 years ago now.

Wouldn't you also like a glass of beer to go with it which has been poured out 3 years ago or a slice of cake from the award show? some of it is still not blue and fuzzy!

Remember when I did that Overwatch elimination game that ended up going south cause I was busy and couldn't update results in time?

Heh...

Oh my god yeah, that was quite literally years ago. In terms of how games move on this would be like Activision saying they were bringing Call of Duty to the Switch... but they meant call of Duty https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Call_of_Duty_(video_game) from 2003, and on mobile too so they would be porting the N-Gage version of it to the Switch for good measure.

If nothing else, at least it will be interesting to see how it fares as a conversion compared to the likes of Paladins.



Apparently the port is being handled by Iron Galaxy, the team  behind the conversions of Skyrim, Diablo III, and Dauntless to Switch.

It's targeting 900p docked and 720p handheld at 30fps.

For a couple of years now, I saw this game as inevitably coming to Switch. It seems like it targets the same people who play Splatoon.



Just in time for the role restrictions so you can't have as much fun as you used to. :P



Hmm, pie.

30fps? Holy shit. Yuck.

They should sacrifice resolution and effects for more framerates, 60fps is a must.
