Nintendo Switch Gets a Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy Port

The success of Nintendo’s home console/portable gaming hybrid, the Switch, was impressive considering that many gamers were unimpressed with its relatively weak hardware, compared to the current gen consoles. However, game developers seem to have taken to it like ducks to water as it has received many ports of current gen games. These include demanding games that people would not expect to run on the Switch’s meager hardware, such as Doom.

Perhaps it’s a testament to the Switch’s true capabilities, or perhaps it’s because game devs can actually optimize their games if they don’t have the benefit of powerful hardware. Either way, Switch’s library is all the better for it – and now it’s also getting a much beloved 3D anime fighter, via a port of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy.

The Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy is a collection of all the Storm games that have been released so far. The PC port of the trilogy has seen updates on some of the game, giving them a 60 fps update. But it seems like the Switch won’t get any of that improvement, as it has been confirmed that the Switch ports will run at 30fps and will only support 900p resolution in docked mode, which drops down further to 540p in portable mode. Either way, it is a concession that every Switch owner is already used to by now, and one that is probably negligible given the console’s other strengths.

The Switch port of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy will be released in Japan on April 26.
