I don't see many differences to be honest. Some times I think Switch is better.

The Switch version only runs at 30fps and sometime dips below that and it has all the problems the PC version has (the PC version is apparently a terrible port).

Meanwhile the PS4 version runs at 60fps. The PS4 is objectively the better version.

I read how bad the PC port was,which is why I've stayed away so far. There were some updates to address the big issues after release, but I haven't looked back at the game seriously since the initial fiasco. Too bad. It looks like a great JRPG. I may have to check it again on the Steam forums and reviews.

Change your youtube resolution to 1080P say that again.

This video is defaulted to 360P

Yeah, I watched nearly the whole video so far, and it's hard to see the differences. Granted, I'm watching this on a laptop with a 768p 15.6" screen. But then again, the Switch screen is even smaller. This game's graphics are not up to current standards anyway. Japanese RPGs tend to stick with that 2010 look for some reason. If anything, I think this video is a good promotion for the Switch version. So close to the PS4 look, and portable.

Man the frame rate on the Switch... it's so noticeable that the scene lags behind the PS4's. I still can't believe the Switch is a gen 9 console...

Cobra9511089d ago

It looks more like bad synchronization to me. The action speed is nearly identical, as far as I can tell.

You may want to take a look again, hell look at the seagulls in the beginning on the Switch side... also look at how noticeable it is at 5:40

I want this game on switch just for the portability and usually I can stomach performance drops, but I'm reading everywhere this is a bad port.

Yeah reading that from bitter Sony fanboys.
