As discussed in this article, some games on the Nintendo Switch are locked to render at a framerate lower than that which the Switch can achieve either due to thermals/battery life reasons or because overclocking the Switch’s CPU is needed to achieve a constant 60FPS.
Thanks to Masagrator’s work, you can play the just-released demo of Dragon Quest XI S at 60FPS if you don’t mind overclocking your Switch to the max (Source)

Due to this, Masagrator decided to create a bunch of 60FPS mods so that people who don’t care much about thermals/battery life can enjoy games looking as best they can on their Switch. Now, he and his colleague ‘Kirby567fan‘ released 4 more mods for retail Switch games which include:

  • Lost Sphear – Compatible with version 1.3.1
  • I am Setsuna – Compatible with version 1.1.0
  • Fe – Compatible with base game (i.e won’t work if you install any updates)
  • American Fugitive – Compatible with version 1.0.5
  • The demo of Dragon Quest XI S (it’s a guide on how to patch it yourself as its config files haven’t been unpacked as of now)
  • For best results, make sure you follow the overclocking profiles described in the links above as all 5 games require a slight/moderate overclock to maintain a constant 60FPS

Other than the above releases, there’s also some good news for these 60FPS mods as it’s been discovered how to get 60FPS in Unity games (American Fugitive is one of them) which took masagrator a few weeks to figure out. If the games you want to play aren’t in that list, there’s still hope as masagrator promised that he’ll release more patches next Friday (30th August)!
