Bayonetta 2

By far the most significant change for the Switch version of Bayonetta 2 is the frame rate. The Wii U version notoriously dips into the 40s, but here everything moves at an almost steady 60 frames per second. I still noticed a few minor slowdowns during intense moments, but overall, executing combos feels even more natural. That makes it much easier to pull off long string attacks on groups of enemies.

However, we don’t get a bump in resolution for the Switch version of Bayonetta 2. It still runs at 720p while playing both docked and undocked, so it ends up looking significantly better while playing in handheld mode.

While there doesn’t appear to be any anti-aliasing, it looks like there are subtle improvements to shadows and texture filtering.

Touchscreen controls work just like they did on Wii U, except with greater precision and a few minor improvements to the AI-controlled camera. I still wouldn’t recommend using them past easy mode, though.
