    I'm kind of 'meh' about Yooka Laylee on the Switch but if it gets a physical release and sold at a decent price I'll rethink.

    I just hope it's not a botched port and/or suffers from Wii U Ubisoft Syndrome.

    I backed it on Kickstarter when it was going so I have it on order for the Switch. From my perspective, I'm just getting a free Switch game in the coming months lol, past me treating future me like a babe <3

    Considering how confident he was, I think it will run just fine. They've had far more time to optimize it for the switch than when it first launched on my PS4. I waited a couple months to play it when it was optimised and it ran fine on my ps4

    I trust him, he is a well known ex-Rare employee, among other things.

    True, I'm actually looking forward to the Mario rabbids game, but I'm scared as crap it's gonna run at 10fps when it launches. Hopefully Nintendo is making ubi go through some extra quality assurance with the game since their precious Mario is in it and they don't want his image damaged...

    Game runs fine, you're worried about a port, Ubisoft screwed those up bad on Wii U.

    Seems a fitting game for a Nintendo console, even though a lot of people seem to think it's a 'meh' game overall. It started at $40 on Steam, I'd guess that's where they start it on Switch.
