Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door sur Nintendo Switch : quel impact sur le framerate ? Découvrez les premières analyses techniques.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door for Nintendo Switch is getting a visual upgrade, but it may come at a cost. According to an early tech analysis by Nintendo World Report, the gameplay in the new version of this turn-based RPG classic will target 30FPS, which is a downgrade from the original GameCube version that ran at 60FPS.

Lower Framerate and Resolution

The analysis is based on the Nintendo Direct video upload. It mentions that the Switch version of Thousand-Year Door is targeting 30 frames per second. While the trailer briefly shows a moment of 60FPS in one shot, it appears to have been sped up, and the rest of the trailer never exceeds 30FPS.

This halved framerate may come as a surprise to fans of the original GameCube classic, which was known for its smooth 60FPS gameplay. However, it’s worth noting that the latest entry in the Paper Mario series, The Origami King, was also capped at 30FPS.

In addition to the lower framerate, the resolution of the Switch version is reportedly 900p in docked mode and estimated to be around 720p in handheld mode. This means there might be some visual compromises compared to the original GameCube version.

Technical Enhancements

Despite the downgrade in framerate and resolution, the tech analysis highlights some technical enhancements in the Switch version. These include subtle reflections, ambient occlusion, and global illumination. However, anti-aliasing appears to be missing.

It’s important to keep in mind that the announced trailer for the Paper Mario Thousand-Year Door remaster is not necessarily reflective of the final product. The game is set to release sometime in 2024, and Nintendo may make changes to its performance and resolution prior to launch.
