de Blob also returns on Switch

de Blob also returns on Switch

The Nintendo Switch welcomes one more port with de Blob, which was originally released on iOS devices and Nintendo Wii. About a bit more than a year ago, a PC version was made thanks to THQ Nordic, so it is no real surprise to see the little painted show up on Switch. Though a bit repetitive in essence, the game is a lot of fun on a console which can become a handheld at will, making short sessions even more of a possibility. Note that playing in dock mode will allow you to enjoy a 60 frames per second framerate while handheld mode seems to be locked at 30 from what we've seen. de Blob is clearly a pleasant title to play during the summer, colorful and funky/jazzy/etc. depending on the main character's mood. Take a look at our videos showing the entirety of the first level.

    MrWhite @jmd749: Unfortunately not. The game runs like shit in standard flat mode, so getting that running 60fps on PS4 seems to be above the devs station. (1 Hour ago)
