Splatoon 2 is just 10 days away and coverage of the game’s single player mode is taking the internet by storm. Naturally, Digital Foundry is riding the wave with its usual coverage of the game’s performance.

In the video below we get confirmation of an adaptive resolution, which varies between 864p and 1080p, alongside a 60fps frame rate during battles. In the main hub, however, we see a constant 1080p with more post processing effects like anti-aliasing, but a drop to 30fps.

The end of the video is also intriguing – after doing the research, Digital Foundry has found that more than 80% of the games currently available on Switch run at 60fps. While this does include a few simplistic games and emulated Neo Geo titles, it does show how much developers for the system are prioritizing the frame rate.

We’ll be sure to bring more on Splatoon 2 as we approach the game’s release date on July 21st.
