If you're not in the know, FPS stands for 'frames per second', and is understandably a pretty hot topic of debate, especially for games on the Nintendo Switch that have sometimes suffered when originating on other platforms. Blizzard has revealed that the upcoming Diablo 3 port to the Nintendo Switch will run at 60 frames per second, in both docked and undocked mode.
The news was first reported by our sister site Eurogamer, who spoke to Diablo senior producer Peter Stilwell. "You shouldn't notice anything different" outside of the resolution change when switching between docked and undocked while playing Diablo 3, Stilwell revealed, saying that the port would run at 60 FPS "across the board". While docked the game will run at a resolution of 960p, and undocked will see a native 720p presentation.
As we reported yesterday, Diablo 3 is not only releasing at some point this fall for the Nintendo Switch, but also contains some exclusive Zelda-themed gear. You can dress up as Ganondorf for example, and you can also get a cucco pet.
USgamer also reported yesterday that you'll need to have an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play online with Diablo 3 on the Switch, which itself isn't launching until the latter half of next month. It will, however, let you save your characters to the cloud.
Diablo 3 on the Nintendo Switch still doesn't have a solid release date, and has only been tentatively given a "later in 2018" release window as of right now.
