This looks really bad either way.
Yeah. I mean, it looks better on PS5 but that’s not saying much. Game’s art style ain’t a looker in gameplay. I thought the reveal footage looked better.

Gonna try the demo later tonight.

Switch version looks awful, but that's to be expected from 3rd party switch games. Is this footage from the PS3 version?

There are third party Switch games that made with Switch in mind that looks amazing like Monster Hunter Rise.

Regardless of platform... I'm going to guess the "lesser known Dreamcast game" look is intentional?

Now show us the 360p screenshots so we can see how it really looks on Switch, not on their PC build.
Seriously, I don't remember the demo looking anywhere near that good on my Switch. I don't think it was 360p or anything, but the ground textures for example were noticeably poor.

People shit on Rise for its "graphics" but World don't have perfect graphics either, none of MH games do.
What? My point is that the demo didn't look anywhere near as nice as those screenshots.

Even then, my biggest issue with Rise is that it's tough for me to go back to after enjoying World at 60fps on Series X, but that's not really a fair comparison for the Switch.
