Digital Foundry – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe & Splatoon 2 Frame Rate Test

Nintendo is releasing two large titles for the Switch in April and Summer 2017; Mario Kart 8 Deluxe & Splatoon 2. Both are major MP titles, so performance is quite important. Do both games run well on Switch? Digital Foundry is happy to report that both run quite well on the Switch and in the case of MK8 Deluxe, has some improvements over the Wii U release.

Splatoon 2 runs at 720P/60FPS while Mario Kart 8 Runs at 1080p (720p in handheld mode) at 60FPS. This results in both titles feeling great to play on the Switch based on impressions from the show floor. The fact both are so stable is telling at the level of completion both are at too, with MK8 Deluxe releasing in April (which isn’t that far from now).
