Several previews have gone live for Atlus’s Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD Remaster and we’ve since learned a bit more about the game’s Factions. However, PS4 and PC players should take note – the RPG is locked to 30 frames per second on both platforms. WCCF Tech confirmed this was the case in its preview for the PS4 version (which was running on PS5).
RPG Site senior staff writer Josh Torres also revealed on Twitter that the PC version runs at 30 FPS. A small gameplay clip was attached with Steam’s frame counter in the top left counter indicating the same. On the plus side, the PS4 version seems to run at a stable frame rate on PS5. Some aliasing was noted but not to the extent of, say, Persona 5: Strikers.
It remains to be seen whether the PC version could have its frame rate unlocked via mods. In the meantime, Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD Remaster is slated to release on May 25th for PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
I've touched a bit of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne's upcoming PC port on Steam. Sad to report that it is indeed capped at 30fps. I've taken a small slice of gameplay footage at the very beginning of the game with a Steam FPS counter at the top left (sorry that it's super small). pic.twitter.com/FRGrMJoF89
