Nintendo has released a new commercial for its new flagship console, boasting two of its promising titles

A new Nintendo Switch commercial was released in Japan, giving a nice view of how it looks to actually play games on the console. The thirty-second commercial shows gameplay of two of its major titles: Dragon Quest Heroes and FIFA 18.

FIFA 18 looks pretty solid - especially if we consider the fact that it will not be powered by the Frostbite engine - but Dragon Quest's performance seems a bit worrying. The game appears to be running at a very low framerate, notoriously characterised by dreaded stuttering.

We're not exactly sure why Nintendo would opt for displaying such a poor performing game in its new commercial, but we'll see soon enough - March 3 is just around the corner anyhow.
