AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) support is coming to the Nintendo Switch, and the first game that will take advantage of the upscaling technology is Nintendo Switch Sports, according to screenshots of licensing documents shared by @NWPlayer123.

The documents include copyright notices for “FidelityFX Super Resolution 1.0 (FSR)” and “FidelityFX,” the former being AMD’s “state-of-the-art” spatial upscaling algorithm that’s capable of improving frame rates while maintaining what the company claims is near-native resolution quality. Judging by the text, Nintendo Switch Sports players will have the option of enabling FSR for a smoother experience.

Nintendo Switch Sports will be released for Nintendo Switch consoles on April 29. The game is a new iteration of the Wii Sports series that includes bowling, tennis, soccer, volleyball, and more.
