MXGP 3 landing on Nintendo Switch in November

Martin Bigg On October 31, 2017

Following its announcement a few months ago, Milestone has confirmed that its motorcross simulation MXGP 3 will be landing on Nintendo Switch on November 21st, thus filling the current void of bike racing games on the system. 

No gameplay footage has been released of MXGP 3 running on Nintendo Switch, sadly, but the first screenshots show that the game appears to have suffered some visual cutbacks ks to run on the platform. Lighting doesn't look as realistic, shadow quality has been reduced, and the ground textures look flat which makes us wonder if the game will still feature dynamic terrain deformation and weather.


You may recall that terrain deformation was removed in MXGP's transition to the PlayStation Vita so it wouldn't be surprising if it's also missing in the Nintendo Switch version of MXGP 3 since the hardware is less powerful than the PS4 and Xbox One. 

MXGP 3 features all of the riders, bikes, and tracks from the 2016 Motocross season, including the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations, as well as an extensive career mode. It will mark Milestone's first ever Nintendo release. Future MotoGP games may also be released on Nintendo Switch.
