Previously, we reported on the new Steam port of Octopath Traveler. If you’ve been curious about how the game runs on PC in contrast to its original Nintendo Switch release, you can now have an in-depth look at the differences.
Digital Foundry has released a new video that compares the two versions side-by-side below. While Switch gamers got to enjoy the game earlier, it looks like Octopath Traveler ultimately runs much more smoothly on PC – with 4K and 60 fps options available.
Check out just how drastic the gap is below.
“The PC release of Octopath unleashes the full potential of Square Enix and Acquire’s unique JRPG. Armed with a full settings menu, this is the first time we’ve seen the game pushed to 60fps – and in doing so, sidestepping the frame-pacing issue on Switch. Tom covers the details.”
