We have gotten some new information in regards to how smoothly Rive, classic 2D side-scrolling platformer mixed with shooting elements, will run on the Nintendo Switch. The game will play at 1080p normally, while portable mode will allow it to run at 720p. The game will also be a solid 60 frames per second. But that’s not all, as Two Tribes’ Collin van Ginkel confirmed that the Switch version of the game is smoother than the version on Playstation 4:
