VGC and Eurogamer are tonight reporting that the Nintendo Switch was shown behind closed doors at Gamescom to developers.
The reports suggest that an improved version of Breath of the Wild was shown to developers, presumably running at a higher resolution and better framerate and purely for demo purposes.
In what is probably more exciting news, and a better representation of what we can expect from Nintendo’s next console, it’s reported that The Matrix Awakens, the Unreal Engine 5 demo that was released on PS5 and Xbox Series X was shown running on the Nintendo Switch successor.
It was said to be using NVIDIA’s DLSS technology with ray-tracing enabled with visuals comparable to that of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Nothing that has been reported is hugely shocking, with it being widely expected that the next Nintendo Switch 2 would target 4K graphics using the hugely impressing DLSS upscaling technology that has been a total game-changer in the PC gaming space.
It’s seeming likely that we’ll hear more about the Nintendo Switch follow-up next year, so the hype train is definitely full steam ahead.
