With the launch of any multiplatform game comes a deluge of graphical comparison videos. And with Nintendo Switch and multiplatform re-release, LEGO City Undercover, that is no exception.
Thanks to a comparison video captured by Nintendo World Report, we can now compare how the brand new LEGO title looks on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and the original Wii U version. Available below, there have been clear improvements on the game since it came out on the Wii U — everything from graphical development, items, objects and textures have improved.
While the PlayStation 4 version looks notably more clear and crisp, the Nintendo Switch version holds up surprisingly well once again. This isn’t the first time a positive comparison has been made between the graphics of the two consoles — only a week ago Snake Pass has another positive video where Nintendo Switch’s release version arguably looked smoother.
With that said, no one is of the mind that on more asset-heavy games, Nintendo Switch would hold a candle to PlayStation 4. However it looks like LEGO City Undercover is a safe bet for anyone wanting the option to “switch” to a more handheld-oriented home console.
LEGO City Undercover originally launched on Wii U around 2013 to middling reviews. It was announced to be coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in late 2016 — a boon to anyone who never grabbed the title on Nintendo’s previous, tepid home console. The Nintendo Switch version has stirred up its own controversy in the past few weeks, thanks to an erroneous printing on the physical packaging stating the Switch version would require a 40% memory install. Luckily, that’s not the case for anyone grabbing the game’s cart.
LEGO City Undercover is currently available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U. Check out the graphical comparisons between Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch below:
