Jump Force: Deluxe Edition tech specs peg the game for "up to 30fps," 1080p docked/720p handheld dynamic resolution

This one might be a tad choppy...

Jump Force: Deluxe Edition was revealed for Switch yesterday, and now we have some tech specs from the ofifcial Japanese website.

According to their breakdown, the Switch version of the game is going to run "up to 30fps," which means sometimes that mark isn't going to be hit. Along with that, the game is listed as having a dynamic resolution, but the top-end results are 1080p docked and 720p handheld.

While the resolution information is just fine, the framerate does sound like cause for concern. That said, I applaud Bandai Namco for being up front about it.
