Earlier this week, Nintendo released a Pikmin 3 Deluxe demo on the Switch eShop – allowing users to try before they buy.

Of course, now that the demo is out – fans are doing a lot more than just playing it. They’re also seeing how it holds up compared to the original title released on the Wii U in 2013, and well…if you were hoping for improved frame rate and resolution, you might want to read on.

Here’s the full rundown (via My Nintendo News):

“VG Tech have performed tests to check out the resolution and frame rate on the Switch game and have found that it renders at 720p and 30fps when the Nintendo Switch system is docked and 576p and 30fps when played in handheld mode.”

Keep in mind, this test (assuming it’s accurate) is just for the demo and may not necessarily be entirely representative of the final release. Based on this information though, the Deluxe version on Switch is seemingly on par with the original Wii U release.

If you download the Pikmin 3 Deluxe demo, you’ll be able to transfer your progress across to the full digital version of the game. You’ll also unlock an “ultra-spicy” difficulty option in the full game if you defeat the first boss in this demo.

Pikmin 3 Deluxe arrives on 30th October and will be available for $59.99 / £49.99. Have you tried out this Switch demo yet? What are your thoughts about it so far? Tell us down below.
