Now that Team Sonic Racing has been out for a few weeks, the technical experts over at Digital Foundry have been able to test out the game on each platform. The Switch version is “basically” the same as the other versions – with matching content, lighting and effects on display. In docked mode, the Switch resolution is 1600×900 and is comparable to the Xbox One S version side-by-side. In portable mode, the game is 1280×720 and is quite possibly “one of the best-looking” games in handheld mode, thanks to the sharp picture.
Although each version of the game looks similar enough, the performance is drastically different. Compared to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases which strive for 60fps, the Switch iteration is capped at 30fps in both docked and portable mode. Across all versions, the game has a habit of dropping in more detailed sections of tracks. Most of the time, though, the Sumo Digital game manages to maintain 30fps on Nintendo’s hybrid device – which oddly makes it more playable than certain other versions because of its consistency. In saying this, the PS4 Pro is still considered to offer the definitive Team Sonic Racing experience on console.
