Darksiders Genesis Will Be “100% The Same” On Nintendo Switch
Darksiders Genesis has now made it to release and while fans gather to play the game on PC, the game is also set to grace consoles in only a few months’ time. The Nintendo Switch is notably among these scheduled ports and though the platform lacks the power of its console counterparts, developer Airship Syndicate confirms the game will still retain a very similar experience.
In a recent interview with Nintendo Everything, CEO promised the upcoming Switch version will be “100% the same” in terms of content, but admitted the port might likely see compromise elsewhere. “And certainly, it is a different platform technically to work on then some of the others, so we’ll up making some concessions,” admitted Madureira. “but the team is working really hard right now to make sure that it’s as good as it can be.” Frame rate and resolution were assured to be a priority, the team said to be working to achieve the “highest possible” for the title.
Airship Syndicate president Ryan Stefanelli also spoke on the port’s challenges, mentioning the game’s “high-fidelity” visuals and recalling their learned experience bringing 2017’s Battle Chasers: Nightwar to the Switch. “It’s what we had to do on Battle Chasers as well, and Battle Chasers was a unique challenge because the Switch had just come out, and Unity was brand new on Switch,” Stefanelli explained. “I think we were one of the first two, three games that were of a decent size – maybe even period that were trying to come to the Switch based in Unity.”
We’ve gotten a taste of what the transition is like, and we’re getting a lot of help on it too, so hopefully Switch players will be happy with it.”
Darksiders Genesis is out now for Google Stadia and PC, with versions for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One coming February 14th, 2020.
