New gameplay trailer for Wreckfest on Nintendo Switch shows impressive graphics

Wreckfest on Switch

Last month, we were impressed with the footage we saw in the pre-order trailer for the Nintendo Switch edition of Wreckfest, which releases on 21st June 2022. While it was all really decent looking, presented as being captured on the Nintendo Switch platform, none of the captured footage was direct gameplay.

However, on Friday (3rd June), THQ Nordic released a new Gameplay Trailer on their YouTube channel, showcasing a three lap crash-fest at Wrecknado. Real gameplay, no replays, just nearly two minutes of what you’ll get when you start up and finish a race on the handheld-hybrid gaming system.

While it’s nowhere near the same quality or depth you’d get on the PlayStation 5 or on a maxed-out PC, it’s still impressive none-the-less. It seems to run smoothly on the device, no noticeable frame drops or lag, even when getting completely used up 30 seconds in.

The small details are there, with debris flying on impact, smoke billowing when conjured, and the lighting effects of the sun on the track and camera are pretty spot on as well. I’d say this port to the Switch is one of the better ones

Wreckfest on the Switch will lock at 30 frames per second, will feature 16-player online multiplayer, and will have DLC available for an extra cost. Have you pre-ordered your copy of Wreckfest for the Nintendo Switch yet? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
