Comparison of Bayonetta 2

Last year we already said that the idea of ​​launching Wii U ports in Switch looks like a good idea, because it's a great opportunity to complete the Nintendo hybrid console catalog with quality titles what at the moment they did not enjoy. the popularity they probably deserve. We said this because of Bayonetta's ports announced by Platinum Games, and six months later we finally got the games in our hands.

Right now we're going to pay more attention to Bayonetta 2, and we're happy to say that the first impressions are pretty positive. In 2014, our partner, John Linneman, applauded the excellence of the original Wii U, but also left record of performance in many stages. Platinum Games brought the Bayonetta formula to new boundaries with the game, but the jump from Xbox 360 to Wii You weren't enough to perform a more ambitious vision while retaining 60 frames per second. In Switch, it's still not perfect, but it has improved significantly.

We didn't expect many visual improvements in this distance – the original one was very nice anyway. But we wondered if the programmers could improve the resolution when playing with the console in the dock. However, it is clear that Bayonetta 2 in Switch is shown in Wii U, with a basic resolution of 720p and no anti-aliasing. What's a little bit improved is the textured filter, which shows more detail than Wii U, though we don't believe they are new or held back. Apart from this and a few minor differences in the delivery of shadows, Switch offers an identical representation to the original Wii U.

We expected a resolution to be enhanced with port-based consoles, but the truth is that Bayonetta 2 works at the same 720p Wii. both modes. First impressions indicate that the visual representation is identical in both configurations, which makes us wonder where the cuts for the portable mode players appear when the GPU reduces its speed by half.

As a guard, the answer lies in the show, but even Bayonetta 2 offers a good experience. In the most demanding areas of the game, port mode offers an improvement of between ten and twenty frames per second for Wii U, which goes much further to the purpose of the 60FPS and offers & nbsp; control that reacts much better than in the original. This is important because the shortcomings in carrying out the original Bayonetta can be overcome in other platforms, such as PC or Xbox One X. Bayonetta 2 is an exclusive Nintendo, the version for Switch is the best way to enjoy a better port.

Despite getting closer to that performance goal, there are still problems. The modest bandwidth of the Tegra X1 – shared between the CPU and the GPU – seems to be the biggest bottleneck, causing delays in the screen with more piracy and transparency. These problems are enhanced in portable mode, but based on our first tests, the version of Switch or Bayonetta 2 continues to outperform the original Wii U. The 720p native offer is also on the console screen. Whatever you see, this port is & # 39; n win-winIt has a better performance and allows you to play a classic Wii U when and where you want.

We'll talk more about Switch's two Bayonetta when the embargo is ready for the analysis, but the first impressions with the successor are mostly positive and we hope that this great match can ultimately be appreciated by a bigger audience. The original enhancements can be scarce, but nearly three and a half years after the premiere, the brilliant and beautiful graphics keep the type perfect. It's great to really visit this game.

After covering almost all the important points of the successor, the next thing we will do is evaluate the quality of the port of the first Bayonetta. We've tried it literally for a few minutes, but first impressions point to much more performance than the Wii U and Xbox 360 versions, with a 720p Dock and Porttil resolution. mode. But, and it's curious, texture filtering looks better when we play with our television. The performance also suffers from a punishment when playing in portable mode, but the frame rate is in line with what is seen on Xbox 360 and Wii U, if not better.

It's a first glance at these ports for Switch, but its quality is solid. The experience in the Dock mode is more humid, but the most important thing is that two of the best Wii U action games work just as well, or even better, in the portable mode of the Switch than in the previous console. Now we are curious to see if it confirms the checkered port of another game Platinum Games, Wonderful 101, and also tries the already confirmed version for Donkey Kong Country Switch: Tropical Freeze. Put it together.
