It wasn’t smooth-sailing for those who wanted to try out Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night at PAX East. The demo suffered from massive frame drops. Well, 505 Games has explained what happened. They said that the demo Switch units had been stored inside closed containers, and this caused them to overheat. The good news is that the same build is much more stable when they aren’t stored this way, and the Switch version has also been optimized since.
505 Games also talked about how the game will play in docked and undocked mode. When the Switch is undocked, Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night will play at a fixed 720p resolution and 30 fps. If your Switch is docked, the game will be in a dynamic 720p resolution and 30 fps “with additional effects/visuals, et cetera”. Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night will release on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this summer.
