Digital Foundry - Assassin's Creed 3 Switch: Last-Gen Port or Full Remaster? - PS4/Wii U Graphics Comparison

Not the best of ports

Delayed as it is we're glad to have Assassin's Creed 3 on Switch in hand - as perhaps the most ambitious handheld port for the series to date. It's a distinct upgrade over Wii U in resolution at least - rising from a native 720p to 1080p, while Switch is docked. And yet many other issues surround this release that make it hard to fully recommend. Tom explains why.

Disappointment all around

Time for another day-one sales data round-up for Japan! Check out the breakdowns for Assassin's Creed III Remastered, Resident Evil: Origins Collection, Team Sonic Racing, and Minna no Doubutsu Shogi below.

[PS4] [NSW] Assassin’s Creed III Remastered (Ubisoft) – 20%. Unexpectedly, sales are quite low

[NSW] Resident Evil: Origins Collection (Capcom) – 10%. Extremely poor debut, even for the late port of remasters, but not too surprising for a bundle with only one game on the cartridge

[NSW] [PS4] Team Sonic Racing (Sega) – 20-30%. Poor debut, especially as sell-through ratio is based on 3 days of sales

[NSW] Minna no Doubutsu Shogi (SilverStar) – No sell-through ratio provided, which is definitely not a good sign.
