Apex Legends is Proof that Not Every Game Needs a Nintendo Switch Port

This is a game that skyrocketed to success on consoles in 2019 thanks to its diverse cast of characters, fast frenetic gameplay, and smart marketing. 

It also helps that it's free, offering high value with little investment out of your pocket. 

Apex Legends was never known for pushing visual boundaries, but on console and PC it runs and plays like you'd expect a modern game to — with a frame rate of 60FPS at 1440p resolution on newer consoles. 

On Nintendo Switch, however, the game runs at an uncomfortably low 720p while docked and 576p in handheld mode. 

While the low resolution isn't inherently a make or break stipulation, it does beg the question of why you'd pick the Switch version over any other option. 

Since Apex Legends is an online game, it's far less acceptable to deal with worse frame rate and resolution when you can't play it without an internet connection.
