Overcooked: Special Edition devs looking into reports of framerate issues

Coming from an Overcooked dev...

Just to provide some clarification on FPS with Overcooked. On console (Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch) the game is set to run at 30fps. PC is a little bit different as you can enable V-Sync which mixes things up a bit. So in a nutshell we expect Overcooked to run at a solid 30fps on Switch, we're also looking into reports of the game having instances where it isn't hitting this benchmark. We are watching & listening, fear not and thanks all for your support.

Some people have been reporting issues with the game running a bit sluggish and causing their Switch to really fire up the fans and make a lot of noise. Others haven't had any issues at all. If there's a patch released or another statement on the matter, we'll be sure to bring that to you.

Golf Story still slated for Summer release on Switch
