Nintendo Switch was recently unveiled to the world, but there are still many things we don’t know about the upcoming hybrid console. We know that Switch runs on Nvidia tech, but how much power is it packing? We’ll have to wait until next year for more specs, but according to Image & Form (developer of the SteamWorld series), Nintendo is “definitely not skimping on power.”
When asked whether that statement was relative to 3DS, the developer later clarified that it was “Compared to past home consoles.” Image & Form is currently working on a SteamWorld game for Nintendo Switch, so they have access to a development kit and general knowledge of the system’s specs. That said, they were unable to give any specifics, and they’ve never worked on a large-scale, hardware-intensive title before, so their idea of “not skimping on power” is hard to gauge.
@Kassrull Can't comment on specs, I'm afraid. But Nintendo are definitely not skimping on power!
