I feel like it could if they simplify the art style to a less photoreal visual style, much like many Wii games did to their PS3/360 counterparts, or like FF XV is doing on mobile

It could work but the question is whether or not people would want it...

Why wouldn't people want games on their console of choice?

Spoilers; it won't.

Not as intended anyway.

360p, 20fps, below minimum settings + lower with content removed, then, maybe.

360p, 20fps? it's a Switch not a PS Vita

How do DOOM and Wolfenstein 2 perform again? Always below 20fps and never above, resolutions between 360p and 480p for the most part. Watch a little Digital Foundry, expecting an open-world game to perform the same or better is lunacy!

wonderfulmonkeyman55d ago

Doom and Wolf perform better than that for the majority of the time. One digital foundry article doesn't represent the majority's experiences.
Stop. Spreading. Lies.

RGB55d ago

Please be serious, the Digital Foundry videos cover day 1 performance and patch "improvements", the majority of the gameplay is sub-HD regardless of docked or undocked on DOOM whilst never hitting 30 + being at the lowest settings, I can't imagine late game content on the hardest difficulty, it would run akin to WWE 2K18 I suspect.

Because it can "run" these games, doesn't mean it should!

Yes but it will be a heavily gimped version, Switch should focus more on indie games like Octopath Traveler and not AAA games like Rage 2.

King_Noctis55d ago

Octopath is not indie. On the indie, AA games, and exclusive games front they have all that covered already. Which is why it is smart for Nintendo to try and get more AAA game on the Switch.

Cool story...except Octopath is not indie as it was published by SquareEnix...

I don’t know if this is possible, but they could always break down the game into levels/sections instead of having a huge open world. However, then there is the game’s price to consider. They have to charge it lower than other versions.
