Disco Elysium Renders at 1080p On Nintendo Switch But Suffers From Performance Issues
Disco Elysium is available now for the Nintendo Switch and Xbox consoles. It is a decent port if you can ignore the performance issues.
Disco Elysium: The Final Cut launched earlier this year for PS4, PS5, and PC. You can read our review to get a better understanding of the game. It has been ported to the Nintendo Switch and Xbox consoles as well. While the PS5 version offered full 60 FPS support, the Nintendo Switch version appears to run at 30 FPS.
Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is also available on PC where the game supports 4K resolution and a high frame rate. It can also be played on the Xbox Series or PS5, where it should be able to hit 4K and 60 FPS. But when it comes to the Nintendo Switch version, you get a resolution downgrade to 1080p in docked mode and 720p in portable mode.
The visuals are not as sharp as PC since texture quality, shadows, and other visual effects are downgraded. These don’t matter as much as a stable performance, which is not the case for the Switch version.
The game can get frequent stutters during gameplay and the frame rate can drop down to 20 FPS on the Nintendo Switch, which feels awful to play due to the input lag. Otherwise, if you are content with a portable version of the game, this is not a bad port.
The game is available for $39.99 and requires 6.5 GB of space on the Nintendo Switch. You can grab it from the Nintendo eShop. The Final Cut has been labeled as the definitive edition of the game adding new content, improving on the existing gameplay, and more. If you want the game a little cheaper, the PS4, PS5, and PC versions are available in a sale right now.
