Nintendo confirms New Super Mario Bros U will be 1080p

Nintendo revealed today that New Super Mario Bros U will run in full hd at 1080p. Previously the game had only been shown in 720p. Good news for Wii U buyers! (New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo, Wii U)

Update MAJOR NEWS: Nintendo has since removed the mention of 1080p and now only says "in high definition"

This could have been a Barbie RPG and I would have still been sold because of the 1080p.

I sure do like living in the future!

Odd. I though the first part Nintendo games were 'confirmed' 720p. Oh well, I'm not complaining. Matter of fact I'm happy to be wrong, or at least misinformed. A better looking game is a nice place to solid gameplay.

you aren't misinformed. This news is new and unexpected. Nintendo did go on the record to say all their first party games would be 720p for the launch window. Games in the future (Mario, Zelda, Metroid) could be 1080p, but we were under the impression that NSMBU and Pikmin were for sure 720p.

This is great news..

If Pikmin 3 can be 1080p with all those characters on screen I'll be impressed
Neonridr  +   1142d ago
It looks amazing at 720p, but who knows, if they could take some time between now and the launch and tweak it to be in 1080p that would be very impressive. The attention to detail in Pikmin is unreal.

Nice! Already pre-ordered though.

Give it some time, a lot of Wii U games will run in 1080p. I wouldn't be surprised if they held back Rayman Legends to implement 1080p resolution.

I already know that the haters will be all over this, "Um, it better be in 1080p!" Yea okay!

Looking good Nintendo, keep it coming...

*yawn* blah blah, it's 2D, it better be in 1080p, blah blah... *yawn*

lol, how many 2D games for the PS3 and Xbox 360 are 1080p? Trine 2 wasn't even 1080p, and they couldn't release the DLC for those systems because they would have had to make several sacrifices to the graphics and effects in the game to make it work for their hardware. The Wii U on the other hand? 1080p and 60 frames per second, with the DLC included in the game.

This is welcome news. I was definitely bummed when I thought this was a 720p title. All that waiting for new better hardware and... 720p Mario? Totally unacceptable.

1080p ftw

I wish I had a 1080p set to experience this the best way, rocking an old 26 inch 720p set! As Mario would say, WAAAHHHHH!

Will have to spend night in car at Bestbuy, they aren't taking in-store pre-orders for the Black version, as i'll have to beat all the jerks who just want the system to make a profit on ebay...

Walmart is doing a layaway program for the black version. You might want to check that out...
