Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate dev talks about how the game has been improved for Switch

Working under the hood

Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is heading to Switch soon, and it's looking to improve on the previous release. In an interview with NintendoEverything, producer and director Tomohiko Sho explains what work has gone specifically into the Switch version to better the last outing.

With the Switch, we’re working on improving the frame rate as well as the number of characters that can show up on screen at once. We’ve kind of been limited to how many, so we’re working on that – we’re improving that. And sometimes there are some characters sort of fading in and out, popping in and out. So those are the areas that we’re currently working on.
