    Precisely my thoughts then. Seems like there is a lower spec for the engine specifically for the Switch to act like a starting point for the devs, then they can drop/add stuff as needed to bring the games to the desired framerate and playability. This does not necessarily mean that all games will need to be watered down, just the ones that push the engine.

    Although there *can* be dramatically different performance gains using alternative architectures, we know both the x86 and the nvidia architecture quite well by now to be able to judge based on the leaked specs, that the Switch is going to be exactly what we thought. Sub-par to the Ps4/Xbone even when docked, much more when in mobile form. I still cannot see how people think it will magically be on par with the current gen specs. Which is all right i guess, if the price point is spot on and the games can deliver at least a performance that is not too ageing. Everything will be revealed in due time, but i would still like to see a more powerful Switch, just for longevity's sake, rather than anything else. Another thing i am interested in (especially with these kind of games) is the support of HDR. We already know that 4k is completely out of the question already, but at least we could reap the benefit of HDR, which is more important than 4k anyway.

    The XBOne is usually set to around 2.5 for Unreal Engine, I wouldn't call a 2 "subpar"

    I don't know, seeing the specs is not very empowering at the moment, hope i am wrong of course. But the specs do paint a really bad picture.

    They are leaked in many places now to completely disregard them. Knowing Nintendo, they sound spot on. Let's hope not.

    The game is vaporware, it'll never release. There's been 0 updates for nearly 3 years, the publisher who picked it up is known for other vaporware titles, and the game as shown would've never ran well on the Switch anyways.

    The dev did go and self-publish a book that was supposed to tie-in with the game...but it was fucking awful according to the 2 actually real Amazon reviews it has (and a mostly 1 star Good Reads ratings), and has since been taken off the store by the dev.

    I am actually super disappointed. I remembered being super excited for this game and everything. I literally forgot about it until now and was hoping the bump meant there was an update (after I remembered this game.) Sad, really pretty bummed now.:sad:
