Video: Resident Evil 5 And 6 Switch Demos Marred By Poor Performance


Earlier this week, we got a scary surprise when Capcom released demos for Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 on the Switch eShop, ahead of the big release later this month. So, how do they hold up compared to existing versions? The experts over at Digital Foundry had a look and found the Nintendo iterations to be rather disappointing in terms of performance.

Resident Evil 5 was found to have an unlocked frame rate – resulting in unsteady performance, and the removal of motion blur really changes the look of the game – to the point, it doesn’t hold up to the Xbox 360 version. The load times are also worse on the Switch.

With Resident Evil 6 demo there are noticeable performance issues from the beginning. The frame rate can dip below 20fps, and on average hangs below 30fps, with occasional jumps above this. It’s described as having similar performance to the PlayStation 3 version of the game. As these are just demos, nothing on display here is necessarily final.
