I like the Revelation games so bring it on
2BizzybTue 16th Feb 2021
Most successful RE spinoff series..makes sense. Cant wait to see what they do with Switch targeted hardware
3YaninaTue 16th Feb 2021
Never was into RE till Revelations. Looking forward to it!
4EVIL-CTue 16th Feb 2021
If MH Rise is running on the RE Engine, why not bring over RE7 natively, and also RE2 & RE3?
5DezzyTue 16th Feb 2021
Great stuff. Revelations 2 is like my 3rd favourite Resident Evil game, so I’m eager for more.
6uhhhhhhhhTue 16th Feb 2021
The spelled revelaitions wrong
7anoyonmusTue 16th Feb 2021
@EVIL-C Its a Nintendo Switch specific RE engine not the one that is used by the home consoles.
Also the leaked name is not Outbreak but OUTRAGE. Get it right, article
8anoyonmusTue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 if it does come to ps5, it will only come to it after a switch release which will depend on how long Nintendo wants. (Maybe 6 months or 1 year)
Its now actually gonna be a timed switch exclusive supposedly.
Also if this built with the switch in mind, chances are that it is gonna run terrible on other platforms. Just look at Revelations 1 on home consoles and they run like s*** compared to the 3DS version and the HD NS version.
Bruh if the gyro controls are a problem for you, just don’t use it.
9Mgene15Tue 16th Feb 2021
I don’t want revelations.. I want a mainline resident evil game..
10KryptoniteKrunchTue 16th Feb 2021
Good stuff, nice to see Capcom making several Switch focused games. Also cool to hear that Rebecca is returning.
11RushDawgTue 16th Feb 2021
Then get a PS5, lol.
No way a new mainline RE game is coming to the Switch anytime soon. Maybe as a cloud release…
12ArdisanTue 16th Feb 2021
I hope its a 3rd person title thats similar to RE1-3 remakes in quality. I enjoyed the revelation games but didnt like the first ones segmented feel and didnt like rev 2s horror tv series feel (walking dead). I love how rev 2 handled co op though, takes away from the horror though.
13QwertynintyTue 16th Feb 2021
Haven’t been into RE since GameCube
14Mgene15Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 not on this forum. Nintendo fanboys will and do cry
15Mgene15Tue 16th Feb 2021
@RushDawg already have a ps5. A mainline re is too much to ask?
16TendogamerxxxTue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 Totally agree with you on this. I’m a nintendo fan, but I love my Resident Evil games and there’s no way I’m playing it on Switch if it’s coming to PC. My full RE collection is on STEAM and I intend to keep it that. I want the best when playing my RE games.
17FriendlyTue 16th Feb 2021
Good for the Switch, but I don’t like the revelations games sadly. I’d like a game more in line with the games 0-3 please.
Been waiting forever it seems now…
18FriendlyTue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 you can’t play RE on your PS5 under a blanket on your bed though. The way I prefer to play these games.
19Chunkboi79Tue 16th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 you’re still convinced there’s nothing to play on the playstation 5?
20GC-161Tue 16th Feb 2021
The same source says that Rebecca Chambers is no longer a white woman but is going to be portrayed as being more Japanese.
Apparently they’re going to base Becca on a Japanese model.
If I remember correctly, the character modeler for RE Zero based her character on a famous Japanese actress. But he had to make some changes to avoid getting sued.
So I guess that she was always supposed to be Japanese (or part Japanese)
21ModdedInklingTue 16th Feb 2021
Being a timed-exclusive to the Nintendo Switch means quality assurance for the Switch version. As much as I praise Panic Button and other developers who work their butts off to port a huge game to the Switch, having mainstream developers create games that can be optimized for all available platforms has always been the nicer way to go. It sacrifices the top-of-the-line graphics and physics, but think it’s really only because the power gap is too wide, compared to back then.
22Hero-of-WiiUTue 16th Feb 2021
Loved Revalations 1 never played 2 because it looked strange from what I saw but people apparently liked it. Looking forward to this!
23Silly_GTue 16th Feb 2021
It Capcom aren’t going to spring for a physical release, then they shouldn’t even bother. Their treatment of the franchise on Switch has been a joke with their one game physical, download the rest crap.
24nhSnorkTue 16th Feb 2021
25BlakeVersusTue 16th Feb 2021
Revelations 1 & 2 are two of my favorite RE titles so getting Revelations 3 on switch would be great!
26flightsaberTue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 Mostly agreed – I loved the ship missions of Revelations on the 3DS, but felt most of the rest of the game fell flat. The tight corridor environments make sense on a ship, and forcing you to stop moving to aim really slowed down the action in a way that helped the horror feel. The textures and lighting were heavily optimized for the system’s stereoscopic effect, and it still tricks into looking more impressive than it should when played today. The netcode was unusually good at the time for Nintendo hardware. I also liked the monster designs a lot better than the traditional zombies of the series. All that said, the Switch is a different beast, and without the challenge of building a horror game designed for the unique limitations of the 3DS I felt the 2nd game fell flat.
I’m all for another ship-setting (or submarine, USSR-style underwater bunker-city, space, etc. Go wild with the spinoff to set a more dangerous setting) game, but I’m not sure what would set it apart, tbh. I haven’t played the recent remakes, but it seems like the main series is returning to the slower-paced horror, so I’m not sure the niche is still there for this?
27michellelynn0976Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 right now, there isn’t. Ratchet and Clank will change that.
Look, I got onto Nintendo for the Wii U. I am not afraid to criticize Nintendo. I didn’t give them a free pass, and I’m not going to give Sony one.
28michellelynn0976Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 I never said that. I have criticized Nintendo, but I have the games. Their Gyro works fine, maybe it is your JoyCon.
29michellelynn0976Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Mgene15 You haven’t seen the Ponies call me slurs, insult my Intelligence and I have criticized. Read up about me before making a baseless accusation. Grow up. Sony ponies on here cry and go after me. So, cry me a river.
30michellelynn0976Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 RE8 is multiplatform. That doesn’t count.
31michellelynn0976Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 Wrong. I got 2 and they work fine. When I play Doom, RER, and BOTW. It plays very well.
32michellelynn0976Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 Here comes the excuse of Sony launches suck, so does everyone else.
N64 had Mario 64 and Waverace.
Dreamcast has one of the best launches ever.
Xbox had Halo1.
SNES had Mario World and F-Zero.
Sony? Their launches always suck. They get better over time, but no one seems to call them out for this.
33RalizahTue 16th Feb 2021
Wow, Capcom is really coming through this year.
Resident Evil Revelations is still the best looking game on 3DS, and, while it’s definitely not a perfect series entry, it was vastly preferable to the console games at the time in that it had a sense of horror to it, much of that due to the dark, claustrophobic cruise ship setting.
I’d love to see a similar level of care brought to a Switch-focused series entry.
34michellelynn0976Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 VR? No, it still won’t make it. Because VR doesn’t make the game exclusive.
35michellelynn0976Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Ralizah Capcom is knocking it out.
36michellelynn0976Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 No it doesn’t. It is the same game. If Zelda was the same game for the new Nintendo system, and the Switch. If the New system version had VR, it wouldn’t count.
37michellelynn0976Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 Na. It is the same game. It isnt exclusive. Just an exclusive feature. Which is cool if that is what people want. Have fun, you know?
38COVIDberryTue 16th Feb 2021
Code Veronica is a ‘Girls’ resident evil.
@Wavey84 Care to explain this comment?
39HenmiiTue 16th Feb 2021
Ah, a Resident evil game (almost) nobody asked for. Just bring Resi 7 and 8, you a..holes!
40echoplexTue 16th Feb 2021
”This is not from me, but for the record…”
41ThegaminggeekTue 16th Feb 2021
Funny how people can assume the majority of the population shares their personal opinion. FYI – just because “you” never liked the Revelations games, doesn’t mean no one else did. So don’t ever say nobody wanted a Revelations sequel because that’s not factual at all. I’m personally a fan of Revelations 1 and 2 and prefer them over mainline series 5 and 6.
42FriendlyTue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 Gyro >>>>>>>>> twin stick shooting.
43FriendlyTue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 do you know the difference between gyro and pointer controls?
And what use gyro has in shooters?
44Zorox88Tue 16th Feb 2021
Enjoyed the first game a lot when it came out.
45StocksyTue 16th Feb 2021
I loved 1&2 on the switch. Both very enjoyable. This will be day one. More RE on switch the better.
46the_beaverTue 16th Feb 2021
It would be awesome to have an unique RE game for Switch! I really hope it’s true!
However, I’d also LOVED to have RE7 and the remakes. They would do great I think.
47xxx128Tue 16th Feb 2021
I am really looking forward to Resident Evil Revelations 3 on the Switch. And i pray daily to the gods of Quality Control that it will not suck as hard as Revelations 2 did. We shall see when its here. Also it would be nice to see Rachel Foley again.
48DethmunkTue 16th Feb 2021
This is good news. Proper RE experience. Hopefully not the RE 7 FPS creepy house stuff. Why was that even an RE game? FYI I never played it so I’m holy unqualified to comment really, just going on what I’ve seen online. It just didn’t seem like an RE game at all, hiding all the time. More like Alien Isolation. Village seems like its more visually in the vein of RE 4 which is very nice. I still don’t like the move to FPS though. It somehow doesn’t feel RE when in that viewpoint. I guess Revelations 3 might do the same. Anyway we’ll see. I’m all for new Resident Evil…. still working through Rev 1 not even got to Rev 2 yet.
49electrolite77Tue 16th Feb 2021
Good news. I wonder if this cluster of (timed?) exclusives is a sign of Nintendo getting a bit more aggressive in terms of getting third-party support.
50westman98Tue 16th Feb 2021
The original RE Revelations was a timed 3DS exclusive, so RE Outrage/Revelations 3 being a timed Switch exclusive is par for the course.
51YosherTue 16th Feb 2021
Why must this stuff be leaked? Let them announce these things for themselves. That way, if it’s real, the announcement excitement will be much bigger. If it’s not real, disappointment will not be had.
I truthfully don’t understand these kinds of leaks. Outside of people being that needy for their 15 minutes of internet fame.
That said, I’d love a Revelations 3 on Switch.
52DonutsavantTue 16th Feb 2021
Rev 1&2 are the best in the series (other than 4) I could not be more excited for this. My heart is so full!
53Doktor-MandrakeTue 16th Feb 2021
That would be cool, really enjoyed revelations 1, never played the 2nd one though outside episode 1
54JbuggydroidTue 16th Feb 2021
It better have an even BETTER raise mode than what was in 2. Lots of fun had in raid mode. Tho it got repetitive.
55MoonKnight7Tue 16th Feb 2021
I loved the first Revelations on the 3DS, it’s one of my favorite 3rd party titles on there. It did get a bit off the rails at the end, and two characters specifically were cringeworthy, but I loved the environments and gameplay.
If this is true, I’m really excited.
56LUIGITORNADOTue 16th Feb 2021
I liked 1 and 2 better. Didn’t play RE7 because it’s a joke. I never played resident evil for the jump scares. Making one focused on that is dumb
57serouj2000Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 Switch also has haptic feedback (unless it’s lite)
58dBackLashTue 16th Feb 2021
I loved the RE, so I’m excited for both Village and Rev 3. Will be getting both on pc tho.
59GrailUKTue 16th Feb 2021
If it plays like 4 with gyro aim, I’m so in. How good is it, that Capcom are making games for the Switch now? Just fab Come on Konami! (It’s like getting the band back together lol)
60GrailUKTue 16th Feb 2021
in other news…
61BRAINFOXTue 16th Feb 2021
@Yosher The point of these specifically is clout chasing. Dusk Golem is an attention whoring fraud that keeps “leaking” news of all these highly demanded games. Dino Crisis, RE Code Veronica, MGS, Silent Hill, and Bloodborne PC/PS5 were all being “leaked” by him and almost all of them have been completely debunked while he’s playing the Emily Rogers card of saying “n-no not THIS presentation, they delayed it” when the event that was supposed to have the MGS or SH announcements doesn’t have either.
62electrolite77Tue 16th Feb 2021
Does precedent really mean all that much? It went multiplatform and the second one was multiplatform at launch. More likely it’s about money.
63anoyonmusTue 16th Feb 2021
@Mgene15 technically revelations IS a mainline title.
It is considered a spin off because it is not a numbered entry
64anoyonmusTue 16th Feb 2021
@BRAINFOX he is the one who leaked MH Rise.
In August, he said MH on switch is built with the RE engine and built with the switch in mind
And we got MH Rise coming soon.
65BRAINFOXTue 16th Feb 2021
@anoyonmus Looked into that and it seems that the earliest report of MH Rise was made by a Reddit user named PracticalBrush12. Not sure if that’s his alt though because Dusk Golem goes by AestheticGamer on there iirc.
66Hunt3r_Cr0wl3yTue 16th Feb 2021
I would play it but apparently the RE games on switch are slow
67anoyonmusTue 16th Feb 2021
@BRAINFOX it could be. who knows.
But dusk golem is the one who made it publicly tho
68gameboy1975Tue 16th Feb 2021
Ummm, let’s not forget or act like that or isn’t an Xbox series X or PC out there now.
69gameboy1975Tue 16th Feb 2021
I have played a good bit in VR & eh; it’s a cool feature, but not nearly all of what you’re making it out to be. The bit more immersion is certainly cool, but it comes at a price as it doesn’t look nearly as good and some thing’s can be a bit cumbersome. Outside of the jump-scares and such being a lot more intense, that’s really about it that I would give it over just playing it on my big TV with the sound kicking.
70Alucard2296Tue 16th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 too much whining lol
71MeikahidenoriTue 16th Feb 2021
@anoyonmus we knew about Rise before then. The MH franchise has two teams that start on the next console/portable entry once the G rank for thier game is completed. It’s like we know there will be a new console version for ps5, xbox sx and pc soon as that would have been started as soon as Iceborne finished by the console team. Rise has been in development since GU (XX in Japan) on the 3ds finshed up by the portable team. We westerners got it on the switch as it coming out at the end of the 3ds life cycle.
But yes, MH has always worked this way so leaks that a new one is coming isn’t really a thing when we already knew one was in development.
72anoyonmusTue 16th Feb 2021
@Meikahidenori but we didn’t know that Capcom is using the RE engine to bring MH rise to switch
73MeikahidenoriWed 17th Feb 2021
@anoyonmus true, but should have been sort of expected since everything else capcom has been making/releaseing since MHW was released has been using it in some form, World possibly one of the only games they’ve made using a completely different engine ( edit: not the usual one they’ve used before nor the RE engine as it’s new. – fixing phasing here though kinda thought I was clear..guess not!)If anything, people should be more suprised Rise had originally a 3ds build in it’s development more than the fact its on the RE engine as it’s rare now to build one that doesn’t work multi platform and with the PS, Xbox and PC becoming extremely similar there’s not really an excuse to have multiple engines for different systems, especially when the switch only has to run them at the lower end to be able to use it as well (I mean some devs do test games on low end pcs not many but there’s a few that still do.)
4 year dev cycles having a game swap engines in between is rather normal these days too so it shouldn’t be suprising to see the portable team choose that over what the console team used that caused them alot of rigging issues with some monsters. After making GU they probably didn’t want to sacrifice certain species with how popular they were and wanted them back. (The producer even stating he wanted to make a snake like monster and finally he gets to! The only true snake wyven was back in 4/4U and that was designed by the consoleteam, not the portable…so can understand him wanting to make his own. )
74Orpheus79VWed 17th Feb 2021
@Dethmunk There’s little to no hiding in RE7. And the creepy house part is pretty on point for RE, it’s following almost the exact formula of the original game in it’s structure.
75Chunkboi79Wed 17th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 lol or someone’s entire backlog of ps4 games. Since it can play basically 99% of ps4 games.
76Schizor88Wed 17th Feb 2021
@EVIL-C because. 20 fps and 510p on a television is considered “not playable”
77michellelynn0976Wed 17th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 Wii U, Xbox One had backward compatibility. Keep making excuses. Sorry, your God Sony, don’t get a pass.
78Chunkboi79Wed 17th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 Okay? Nintendo doesn’t have backwards compatibility now and gets off charging 60 dollars for ports.
Saying that Sony has the whole backlog of ps4 games is hardly an excuse. Considering I easily have 300 games in which I bet I haven’t touched 200 of them from playstation plus and sales alike. Especially since Sony launched the ps5 with a handful of games. Like spiderman, little big planet, dark souls, assassins creed vahalla, COD, and Astros play room.
The drone in you is strong.
79PlusUltraWed 17th Feb 2021
Looking forward to official news. I enjoy RE spinoffs more than the main games and also resident evil side modes more than story modes.
1st revelations was great for showing what was suprisingly possible on the 3ds and was a solid game. I enjoyed revelations 2 way more than the first and I even enjoyed the story mode and characters more but especially the setting.
Personally i prefer having having an A.I character tag alone to swap with especially when they have their own unique skills. The game is just less boring and fixed that way. However Id also prefer if future games were designed so that you didnt specifically need certain characters or numbers of game specific characters but if you did happen to choose to play in company or with a specific character it would be the icing on the cake.
80michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 Who said that? No blinded Pony bot. I am saying that ponies like you let Siny get away with it all the time. Also, Sony charges full price for ports. Get a life.
81Chunkboi79Thu 18th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 when was last time Sony charged full price for a port? Secondly when was the last time they remained at 60 dollars for years on end? Shoot I got the Nathan drake collection for 7 bucks on the playstation store. When was the last time you bought 3 nintendo games for 7 bucks?
82michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 Lou. Sony also stated that. And, Sony is charging 10 bucks more for a game released on the same day.
83michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 People like you don’t seem to realize that when games go on aale like that (bigger budget games), the devs don’t get as much money. That is why more Sony 1st party games come to PC.
84Chunkboi79Thu 18th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 what does either of those comments have to do with you getting three nintendo games for 7 bucks? You going to answer my simple question?
Who said that I have to buy them at 70 bucks? I’ll wait until a sale price like I always do. Nintendo pigeon holes people into paying 60 bucks for everything. Even look at the embarrassment of skyward sword
85michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 Because you act like Sony is some saint. Lol, Get real. Na, Skyward Sword will be worth it. Also, they may not go on sale as much anymore. Games are more expensive to make, and while lowering them down is nice for consumers, sadly, it takes away from developers who need more money for when their company doesn’t have a game coming out.
86michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 Why do you ponies come here anyway? Seriously? You infect this site like a disease. It is like Sony can do no wrong, Nintendo can’t do anything right and anyone who calls you on your BS, you get butthurt over and go after. Grow up.
87Chunkboi79Thu 18th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 No it’s because I have both nintendo and sony consoles and I get wayyy more out of my ps4 in terms of value than any of my Nintendo systems.
You act like Nintendo doesn’t have enough money to lose 250 million a year and still survive until 2052. You call me a pony but all you’re doing to enabling poor consumer practices from Nintendo while making false claims that the PS5 has nothing to play on it. When in reality it has a massive selection from the ps4 library and the few games it launched with.
88michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 They pay their employees well. Even the lower-level people. Tell me, why is Sony charging 10 dollars more now? Let’s watch the mental gymnastics. PS4 had nothing last 2 years. Nothing it’s first 2 years. It had 3 good years and 4 bad years. A bbelow-averageconsole held up by blind ponies like you.
89michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 Why is Sony charging people for shipping to have a broken PS5 controller fixed. Hmmm
90Chunkboi79Thu 18th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 wtf are you even going on about. Last year we got ghost of tsushima, spiderman, last of us 2, and sackboy? the first two years of ps4 we got killzone, shadow of mordor, infamous second son, and destiny.
Nintendo charges full price for 10 year old ports and artificially inflates their prices. Same song and dance.
91michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 GOT, average at best. Spiderman was OK. Demon Souls was clunky, LoU2, don’t even get me started on that disaster or FF7R. What an abomination.
92michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 So does Sony, so pony. What is your point?
93michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
Oops. No one is perfect. Nintendo and Sony both do anti-consumer crap. The media focuses on Nintendo’s more.
94michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Wavey84 I have tried it. I got a headache, so no thanks. But, I am glad you enjoyed it.
95michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 Sony’s digital purchase policy is worse than Microsoft and Nintendo’s! Which are pretty bad.
96Chunkboi79Thu 18th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 I read the article, this is all pretty old news. I reguarly play crossplatform with Rocket league, dauntless, and no mans sky. For the $60 playstation plus on the ps5 we most of the major big name games of the ps4 with the PS+ collection with three new games a month.
Glad to see you’re keeping up with the times.
97michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 Did not address the duel sense huh? Which I am glad Sony is getting sued for. Or their digital online policy huh? Hurts the pony narrative right?
98michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 Glad to see you ignore their problems to prove your blind loyalty.
99Chunkboi79Thu 18th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 I couldn’t find anything on them charging for shipping. You got a source on that one?
Also I didn’t ignore the problems. I’m saying that they corrected the issue on the crossplay and they increased the value of their subscription service.
100michellelynn0976Thu 18th Feb 2021
@Chunkboi79 sure. And, my apologies. You seem like a cool person. Just not been me. Going through a lot, but I don’t apologize. Nintendo fans need to hold Nintendo accountable, and Sony fans need to hold Sony accountable.
101MetalToadFri 19th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 lol. You are funny. Blind loyal Nintendo fanboy. Really funny
102michellelynn0976Fri 19th Feb 2021
@WahooTime Grow up. I showed the proof. Get real and get over yourself. Pony.
103michellelynn0976Fri 19th Feb 2021
@WahooTime I have criticized Nintendo, so keep being blind. Good job.
104MetalToadFri 19th Feb 2021
@michellelynn0976 thanks. I love your comments.
Nintendo is the best. Sony is the worst.
105michellelynn0976Fri 19th Feb 2021
@WahooTime I used to think Sony was OK, until the PS3. I think I am just tired of people giving Sony a free pass.
106anoyonmusThu 18th Mar 2021
@EVIL-C I could see 7 might happen but not the remakes tho.
Maybe Capcom could port the ps1 trilogy to the switch. That way they don’t have to do a lot of hard work on getting it on switch
107anoyonmusSat 17th Apr 2021
@Meikahidenori a little too late but for your information, MH World doesn’t use the RE engine. Why does everyone get mixed up about that
108anoyonmusSat 17th Apr 2021
@MetalToad yeah Sony is trash.
You know they have MLB the show 21 at 70 dollars for PS5 but on XSX you can pay 70 dollars OR pay 10 dollars a month for game pass for the same game.
OH WAIT .
What about the rumored Last Of US remake for ps5? That game doesn’t even need a remake yet Sony is supposedly to going to go with it even though you can already play the last of us on ps5 by using the PS4 version of the game.
When Sony does a remake for this, they will charge it 70 dollars…. for a remake of a game you can already play on ps5
Sony is actually worse than Nintendo when it comes to anti consumer imo.
109MeikahidenoriSat 17th Apr 2021
@anoyonmus uh i said different engine as i know it’s not the RE one, Rise uses RE. I forget what World actually uses but I am aware it isn’t the one they typically been using for the series in the past. maybe I could have phrased it better as that was not what I had ment at all. Thank you for pointing out my bad phrasing though

@Schizor88 which is funny to me…it’s never affected games before or prevented them being any good at a low fps. Some games don’t need it at all to be at 60 or above because they don’t need to be fast, especially when tv and film are at locked frame rates (24 fps pal, 26 Ntsc tvs – infact that’s how you work when you make animation for television, it’s the universal standard and far as I’m aware it hasn’t changed) because the human brain doesn’t really register certain speeds any different without giving you nausea. It’s why alot of action movies are now blurry messes in the cinemas and when veiwed at home look much more tolerable.
For high speed racing or a twitchy shooting (though tf2 on higher than 30 with the scout is 100% vomit inducing, that motion blur is insane at high speed with loose controls) 60 and above is nice (though i stopped playing those games once they got over that, rather not be sick while playing) but for other games it’s not a requirement.
I’ve been playing Rise since release, sunk more hours into it than alot probably would because I play sub optiomal as I love the adrenaline rush when a hunt gets down to 5 minutes, monster low on health, I’m on final cart and no traps to use….unlike most who want a hunt finished in 5 mins or less (i don’t see the point playing if you’re going to do that…but that’s personal preference) and only time I’ve had any frame dip under 30 fps was due too too much affects on screen at one time in the flooded forest and that was fixed by turning damage numbers off (as to me that’s on screen visual noise, especially with the colours around them which i understand are there but just not needed in handheld mode) and a few other useless bits of screen information like players names ect and it was completely fine afterwards. The game plays beautifully for something pushing the switches limits, the portable team showing they know how to use the systems limitations to it’s advantage, unlike other games that try and do the same and frame dip all over the place (looking squarely at you, age of calamity – which to be fair if locked at 30 fps wouldn’t have made a difference but you never know)
limitations shouldn’t be seen as a restriction, it never used to be (the golden age of lucas arts where when they weren’t allowed to make starwars games…the amount of great original IPs they made disappeared entirely when they were given the green light to do so) and the MH portable team has proven that time and again since the psp and 3ds (even the main team have since the ps2, especially since they’ve dipped into more than one console with various limitations themselves). They’re absolute wizards and frankly if you want to play higher fps you can on pc next year if it’s that big of an issue (though it’s not going to make it play any smoother than it already is, but we have to justify the purchase of a expensive gaming rig set up that costs more than 4+ weeks worth of groceries somehow don’t we? We humans a good at fooling ourselves when we want to. I’ve done it in the past before, everyone has. )

@Meikahidenori oh its ok. Sry
For your information, it is called the MT Framework engine. It is primarily used for the 7th gen consoles from Capcom.

@anoyonmus ta for that. I had problems running World on my computer (it’s old i really should update…i don’t play pc games enough to warrant it atm). For the Main MH team they hadn’t used that before so in truth for them it was new, as the last one they made was MH4 on the 3ds and that doesn’t use the same engine, making it technically a new engine for that particular entry in the franchise – though frankly I don’t know what Frontier ran on asummed it would have been and older version of that framework since it started around 2007 on PC before getting a 360 release, that and Frontier was a completely separate team within Capcom so they may not have had the same programmers who were already working with it still there and we don’t know if anyone from outside the MH teams were involved in putting it onto that engine. I’d say not as they had issues with several monster skeletons if I remember what I read correctly making them very careful with what monster skeletons to include. I’ll be interested to see where they go after Rise, but if it’s on a system I don’t have like World was I might have to just hold out another 4 years (I made gen and GU last so definitely possible and it’s not like I can’t go back and do more runs of Tri and 4U either.)
