Nintendo Switch Is A Powerhouse For Its Size, Says Nine Parchments Developer

“Nintendo has done a great job.”

The Nintendo Switch is undoubtedly a weaker console than the PS4 and even the Xbox One, let alone the more powerful PS4 Pro and Xbox One X variants; however, it remains a marvel of engineering for what it is, especially given how much power it packs into its size, while also managing to deliver at least somewhat reasonable battery life.

This is a sentiment echoed by Frozenbyte, the folks behind Trine and the upcoming Nine Parchments, which is also coming to the Nintendo Switch. Speaking to WCCFTech, Frozenbyte said that the Switch is a powerhouse, and extremely easy to develop for, with great documentation on the hardware and its features readily available.

“We’ve been enjoying development on Switch a lot,” they said. “The architecture, documentation and everything has been very well put together, Nintendo has done a great job. Nine Parchments is quite demanding visually, so we’re running at 30fps, 1080p in docked and 720p in portable mode. The Switch is definitely a powerhouse considering its size, and the portability really works well for many games. You can even play Nine Parchments in co-op on a single Switch system where each player only uses one Joy-Con!”

When they were asked about the possibility of their older games coming to the Switch, they said that chances for Trine coming over generally look good- Shadwen might be a bit of a stretch, though. That said, they did drop a tease for next year, suggesting players should wait to see “what [it] brings”, so who knows? You could soon be playing Trine on your Switch, if things turn out right.
