Xenoblade Chronicles 2 arrived recently, pretty much the last major retail release on the Switch for this year. It's another triumph for Monolith Soft and Nintendo, and is sure to keep fans busy into 2018. That said, one thing we said in our review was that, although it's a handsome game in various ways, it has one of the "biggest docked / portable gulfs yet on the Switch". It looks pretty nice on a TV, but detail and resolution are rather different on the portable.
Now our chums at Digital Foundry have done their thing and given a tech analysis on the Switch title. It's an interesting watch and puts some more detail and numbers on the resolution, framerate and so on. Check it out below.
We think anyone playing the game will accept that it has some technical flaws - on the other hand it's a sizeable and ambitious title, so it's unsurprising. Perhaps, like with the year's other massive adventure in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, there'll be some updates and patches to smooth out some issues.
Let us know how you're getting on with the game, or if you're planning to pick it up for the festive period.
