There have been conflicting reports about the Nintendo Switch’s power in the last day.
On Thursday, a few hours after Seasons of Heaven was announced, this Wii U Forums thread resurfaced.
The thread in question is about what Nico Augusto, the game’s creative director, said in an interview that took place on the day after the Switch was revealed.
He said that he had had time with the development kit and that the console’s specs were on par, or even slightly better than the PS4’s and that developers have had “no problem” porting PS4 games to the Switch, and that they even had a bit of extra power to work with, thanks to Nvidia’s “black magic”.
He is known for having leaked Devil’s Third on Wii U, but he doesn’t have a very good history with leaks, otherwise.
Laura Kate Dale, who has recently been blacklisted by Nintendo and has also leaked a ton of information about Switch games, said that people shouldn’t assume that Augusto’s claims are accurate.
I’d side with Laura on this one, considering Augusto’s track record and the leaked Switch price.
We may have answers to all of this at Nintendo’s Switch Presentation on January 12th.
