Visually impressive puzzler game, Snake Pass, only took one week to port to the Nintendo Switch according to the developer. This is certainly promising news and bodes well for other devs to hopefully suite with their games. In a recent streaming session the developer, SUMO Digital, showed the PS4 version and then a little later the Switch version – giving an insight in how they compare.
You can watch the video here.
Skip to around the 20 minute mark if you want to see them play the Switch version.
Only a week? good job Nintendo
Actually, it’s SUMO DIGITAL who is developing this game… not Nintendo.
They clearly state it’s due Nintendos hardwork and support it was possible to get this running as quickly as they did.
No im congratulating Nintendo for making it that quick to port
Nintendo AND Epic Games.
???… you’re forgiven.
well it obvious the only reason its that easy its because of Nintendo
and again its indies talking up switch and hater big publishers saying nothing
Saying nothing and porting several games. Square enix alone is bring like 4.
Only a fecking Week…. yet Slightly Mad is like “Oh we can’t because it’s too hard, boohoo”…. I’m getting this game on Switch just to support Sumo Digital. These guys actually know what they’re doing
Looks like a very pretty game. I think this is also a good example of a hardware comparison between PS4 and Switch. I don’t really care tbh because it still looks beautiful, but PS4’s version is 60FPS and this one is 30FPS.
Watching the Switch footage before the PS4 footage, I still thought it looked and had the feeling it played fantastic. It BARELY made me feel worried about the specs in comparison because this definitely shows that the hardware is good enough where console owners won’t complain too badly.
This is a Stream though, so you can’t really tell
9+ people out of ten can’t tell the difference if a game runs at 30FPS and 60FPS.
Totally not dead! :D
another prediction for the win! porting to switch takes roughly a week
They got it running in a week. Really porting it takes longer.
No, it clearly says “port”
OK so is the whole video for the switch version? I went to the 20 minute mark where they started playing but I didn’t hear mention of the platform
Yes, the whole video is about the Switch version.
Really now ? It looks great then I thought that was the ps4 version or PC and was trying to look for a downgraded ps2 looking version through the whole video lol thanks for clarifying that
I thought that at 20 mins it was PS4, and at 30ish it was Switch. The FPS looked like it changed. I mean, it could’ve been my imagination, or just an issue with the stream.
They still have some optimization to do but the whole video is indeed the Switch version if you notice the way his hands are placed. The fact that the game looks the same as the PC and PS4 versions of the game amazes me as this Unreal Engine 4 game shows why we shouldn’t worry about the Switch’s capability.
Dragon Quest Heroes looked a bit meh on Switch compared to the PS4 version but it’s not that graphically intensive compared to this game which clearly has better lighting, high-res textures and smoother polygons. I think the DQH devs are either lazy or haven’t gotten the newer dev kits yet.
Okay. I’d just assumed that they were playing pre-recorded footage. Cool.
Stay at home mom Kelly Richards from New York after resigning from her full time job managed to average from $6000-$8000 a month from freelancing at home…
This is how she done …
Ban that troll/spammer!
Pretty, but looks like a crap game so who cares?
Looks pretty but as a whole it seems like a boring game that I would quickly lose interest in.
I just want Yooka Laylee tbh nothing else matters atm.
