Monster Hunter Stories 2 PC vs. Nintendo Switch Comparison
Monster Hunter Stories 2 is available for both PC and Nintendo Switch. Here is a comparison between both versions highlighting the difference.
If you want to play Monster Hunter Stories 2, you can either grab it on PC or the Nintendo Switch. As we saw with the demo, the game runs at an unlocked frame rate on the Nintendo Switch. It doesn’t appear to quite hit the 60 FPS mark but instead shuffled between 20 to 40 FPS depending on the scenario.
As for the resolution, it is a dynamic 900p resolution when the game is played in the docked mode and 720p when played in the handheld mode. This obviously doesn’t carry over to the PC version, but the truth is that said from the resolution and performance, there is no discernable advantage on PC.
The one thing that is clear after watching this comparison is how close the Nintendo Switch is to the PC version, indicating that the development was done mainly on the Nintendo Switch with a simple port to the PC. The resolution can be tweaked to run higher (4K) and the draw distance is better, but there are no major visual upgrades offered on the PC version.
Regardless of which version you decide to pick here, the game is gorgeous enough that it doesn’t look bad on either platform thanks to its art style. You can enjoy it in portable with the Nintendo Switch while also getting the benefit of playing it on the big screen. On the other hand, this doesn’t appear to be a demanding game on PC.
