Toukiden: Kiwami has just been released on the PC and from the looks of it, this is another port that PC gamers should avoid. According to a lot of reports, the game runs at the half of your native refresh rate. This means that if your native refresh rate is 60Hz, you’ll be locked at 30fps and if your refresh rate is 120Hz, you’ll be locked at 60fps. However, there is a catch here.
You see, the game’s “logic speed” is tied to the actual framerate, meaning that the game runs faster (2X) when the framerate is at 60fps. In other words, in order to play the game, you’ll have to manually lock it at 30fps.
In case you’re wondering, forcing VSync via your GPU’s Control Panel will make the game run at 60fps. However, as we’ve already stated, the game speed is doubled when running at such a framerate.
And no, there is – at least at this point – no way to get 60fps with normal “game speed”.
It will be interesting to see whether the developers will release a patch to address this issue or not, especially now that gamers can use Steam’s refunds in order to get their money back.
