TT Games working to "benchmark and optimize" LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on Switch, are "really pleased" with the results

Looks good, this one does

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is most likely going to be a big hit on Switch, and TT Games knows the potential audience for the platform is huge. That's why they want to make sure they do the best they can with the Switch version. In an interview with NintendoEverything, TT Games creative leads Arthur Parsons talks about the continuing work on the Switch version, and where they're at right now.

In terms of the actual figures, we’re going to continue to benchmark and optimize. We’ll look at it more. Right now today we’re happy with what we’ve shown, and it looks good. We’re really pleased. And part of it was gauging, is this going to stand up when people see it for the first time? Are they going to go, “Oh, this doesn’t look so great.” Or are they going to go, “Woah”? And it was definitely the latter. Every time we’ve shown it, people have gone, “Wow, this is a big step up for LEGO games.” And we’re like, “Great, so that’s the benchmark for the visuals.” Let’s make sure we can make that perform. And we think we certainly can. But first, let’s make sure that this is the level that people expect from a next-generation LEGO game.

RUMOR - Remake of a Disney action title coming to Switch

What's the house of mouse up to?

It's been awhile since we've had a juicy rumor to sink our teeth into, but tonight that changes with some interesting discussion about what Disney might be up to. Check out the info round-up below.

- being worked on by developer PlayMagic
- the project is a remake of Disney IP for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Switch-
- PlayMagic's website does say that they're working on an "unannounced remaster of a Disney IP"

As usual, nothing is confirmed until the parties involved say so. We'll need word from Disney or PlayMagic on their projects, and I doubt they'll be letting loose with any secrets in the near future!

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!
