Gothic is undoubtedly one of the most iconic RPGs, and its memory is kept alive not only by modders. Some time ago, gamers were pleased newsthat the adventure in the Mining Valley is heading to Switch. Soon every owner of a Nintendo console will be able to take this title on the road and, let's say, while riding a train to remind Kharim why he came to the Old Camp. Premiere of Gothic on Nintendo Switch is just two days away, and today you can watch an extensive gameplay..

Gothic on Nintendo Switch

YouTube channel of Cycu1, a youtuber known for publishing gameplay recordings of various games and visual comparisons, a gameplay appeared, showing Piranha Bytes' game in action on Switch. In technical terms Gothic is not a particularly demanding game, so on Nintendo's hybrid console it works brilliantly. In addition, it is worth noting that, although you can't see it on the video, on the screen of the device the graphics can also look favorable.

At some points it can be seen that the player has slight problems with the controls - for example, before the fight with the juvenile scavenger at the beginning of the game - so it will probably take some getting used to, but other than that, you can see that Gothic is a great fit for the Nintendo Switch.

PC and Switch comparison

The developer has also published a direct comparison between the PC version (on RTX 4080) and the Switch version. In the case of the latter, the colors are slightly cooler, although much depends on the color settings in the game's options, of course. You can watch the comparison here.

While this is not a remaster, let alone a remake, the Switch version will have a ton of improvements. You can find a full list of them here.

Finally, let us once again remind you that Gothic Classic will debut on Nintendo Switch on September 28..
