Bayonetta 3 is now available on Nintendo Switch. Like most Switch games, it can be played on PC through emulators like Ryujinx and Yuzu, which can provide a better experience in terms of visuals and performance.
There are already three Bayonetta 3 YouTube videos running at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. This is a significant leap above the limitations imposed by Switch hardware. Digital Foundry reports that the game runs 810p dynamic when connected and 480p dynamic when in mobile mode. The frame rate isn’t much better either, although the Bayonetta 3 uses these low resolutions. But it doesn’t always run at 60 frames per second on the Nintendo Switch.
Unfortunately, even when emulating games on PC. The cutscene is locked at 30 frames per second. This is a bit shaky after 60FPS gameplay. However, this is the best way to experience the game. Although there are the following current limitations stated by the Ryujinx developers:
- Godrays cover the screen in some areas. On Nvidia, use the driver version. 516.xx/517.xx to avoid this problem Checking for fixes
- New texture compression is required to avoid running out of VRAM. Enable it if you run into problems. “Insufficient device memory”
- Cutscene audio can be unsynced. Still no solution
Bayonetta 3 received a 9 out of 10 rating from Wccftech reviewer Nathan Birch. You can read the full review here; Below is the final excerpt.
Bayonetta 3 offers a robust 12-hour campaign with multiple difficulty settings. And those elusive platinums allow for tons of replayability, added collectibles, decorations, unlockable “Phenomenal Remnants” bonus missions. And what after the game I will not detail. And you have a game that will keep you trapped in action ecstasy for a long time.
It’s the best entry of this series. It presents a captivating story of the universe. Exciting movie moments and delicate actions that are more accessible and profound than ever before. The game can feel a little enclosed on the Switch. But platinum takes every bit of performance possible from the hardware. Whether you and Bayonetta have history or not. This is a participation that should not be missed.
