Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Nintendo Switch version just got its first off-screen footage. The game is seen running on a Nintendo Switch device. It runs with minor lag and sturring issues but overall isn’t bad at all. Considering the fact it’s the cloud version, do not expect it to roll out anywhere besides Japan, for now.
The game is running using the same methods we saw with Resident Evil 7. The demanding nature of such titles isn’t suited for Nintendo Switch. The company came up with a cloud-based solution which is only available in Japan. Moreover, it requires a high-speed internet connection, faster than the average connection speeds used in Japan and even in the United States.
This further restricts its reach to only certain areas of Japan. If you plan to play this in rural Wisconsin at some point in the future, well, you’re out of luck. Even if the service comes to the United States, the lag would be an issue for a better part of the gaming community all around the world. There are ways to play Odyssey on Switch outside of Japan but be warned, it is a horrendous experience to go down that road.
Visually it looks good and the control scheme is pretty much the same as PS4 and Xbox One, nothing unusual there. The video shows the opening section of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey where you briefly play as King Leonidas. The Spartan is seen tearing through enemies with his trademark style. However, the player complaints about lag and stuttering issues. Overall, it isn’t a bad experience on Nintendo Switch.
