It’s good to see so many games embracing cross-play, allowing those on other systems to interact and play with one another. While Sony is keeping to itself, denying cross-play with Xbox and other platforms, we’re still seeing an increasing number of titles popping up that allow PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch players to join each other for a fun gaming experience.
Mantis Burn Racing is another cross-play supported title that will allow those on PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch to play together.
Focusing on the Nintendo Switch version, the developer today announced that the game will run at 60fps on Nintendo Switch, in both TV mode and handheld mode, which should make it super smooth.
“We’ve been spending a lot of time getting to grips with the capabilities of the Switch – we’ve learnt a lot by digging deeper into the hardware” said Mark Williams, Technology Director at VooFoo Studios. “The Switch’s performance analysis tools have allowed us to understand where frame rate improvements could be made and we’re really pleased to have the game running at a consistently smooth 60fps – we were determined to make the Switch version the best it can be.”
When more players are added, however, the frame-rate will have to take a hit:
“VooFoo Studios have also confirmed that 3 and 4 player local split-screen races are locked at 30fps, with 2 player split-screen running at a variable 30-60fps.”
Maintaining 60fps in both the TV and handheld modes is always a good thing to see. I’m a big fan of developers pushing for that smooth frame-rate, especially in a racing title!
