Pokemon Scarlet and Violet released earlier this month on Nintendo Switch, and was playable on PC via emulators on launch day. Not only that, but the game ran better on PC when it came out, and PC gamers can now also enjoy it with 60fps.
Although the game is by default locked at 30fps, Nintendo Switch cannot offer a constant 30fps experience. According to numerous reports, there are major and numerous drops below that framerate target. On the PC, however, gamers can play it with constant 30fps.
Modder ‘theboy181’ is currently working on a 60fps mod for the game. In order to showcase their progress, theboy181 shared the following videos. And, as we can see, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet can now look silky smooth on PC.
