The now famous content creator known as ElAnalistaDeBits has conducted a new comparison video between the console versions of Hades for PS5, Xbox Series X / S and Nintendo Switch, focusing on the differences related to graphics, resolution, framerate and general performance .
From an exquisitely playful point of view, both the Nintendo Switch version and the latest iterations of the title available to owners of Sony and Microsoft nextgen consoles are on the levels of excellence achieved by the original version on PC. Regardless of its platform of choice, the Supergiant Games roguelike masterpiece knows how to give priceless emotions to Zagreus’ emulators who aspire to find an escape route from Tartarus, as pointed out by ElAnalistaDeBits himself after having collected the comparative data.
The PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S versions all run at resolution of 2160p with dynamic scaling based on the definition of your TV or monitor: even on the framerate front, the nextgen consoles have enough power to guarantee a fluidity anchored on the 60fps, a parameter that is reached on Nintendo Switch only with the reduction to 720p of the rendering resolution. The only differences noted by the youtuber between the nextgen versions of Hades are the loading times (slightly higher on Xbox consoles) and in occasional stuttering phenomena that occur on PS5.
Given the particular artistic style of the cult roguelike of Supergiant, the author of this video comparison finally recommends Switch users to play in Portable mode, by virtue of the greater sharpness of the settings to be admired on the screen of the hybrid console of the Kyoto house.
