One of the greatest (and most unexpected) exclusives on the Wii U was that of Bayonetta 2, the sequel to Platinum Games’ bombastic and violent flagship title. Fans were ecstatic when it was confirmed to be coming to the Switch, and many hoped that it would benefit from some performance and visual upgrades in the transition to better hardware.
Digital Foundry recently put out a video on the Switch version of Bayonetta 2, comparing it to the original Wii U release to see just how much it did end up getting upgraded. As it turns out, the visuals received next to no improvement, but the framerate did see a noticeable bump to a more consistent 60 FPS. It may be a bit disappointing, but bear in mind that Platinum is also working on Bayonetta 3, and will no doubt be utilizing techniques from this port in the new release.
