Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Looks Amazing in HD

GenGAME writes: You may have played Skyward Sword before, but you’ve never played it like this. Using the Dolphin emulator, Skyward Sword can run at 1080p with additional anti-aliasing and anisotropic texture filtering, giving the game a breathtaking new look. (PC, Wii)

Fingers crossed Nintendo releases a Zelda HD collection for Wii U. Thanks for sharing the video

I'm hoping for that as well. Between this and Wind Waker, there's real potential for new life out of some of the old games.
ElectricKaibutsu  +   954d ago
Shoot, I'd have to buy that.

The thing is.. The game is rendered at 480p. You can do all sorts of fancy things but the game is still at the bed of the day 480p upscaled. You can't magically change the source material.

Having said that, i do like dolphin. I just find this video a bit misleading. Just imo.
ElectricKaibutsu  +   954d ago
I'm not sure if it is upscaled. According to the video they actually render it at a higher resolution. Of course this doesn't make the textures higher, but it does make everything sharp and jaggy-free.

Thank you! Someone who understands textures and resolutions.

I tell people this kind of stuff all the time it's like playing console games on PC, sure you can scale them as high as you want but it doesn't matter if the actual textures in the game aren't made for that resolution. They are always preset anyway.

Even some PC games are like that.

no not really, Dolphin changes the native rendering resolution to whatever you set it to. Upscaling an image does not magically add detail to a picture, in fact is just causes it to blur and often lose detail. Native resolution has nothing to do with source meterial.

Also @ profgerbik

Textures aren't related to rendering resolution in the least.

yeah no shit, we could do this on Dolphin years ago..
ElectricKaibutsu  +   954d ago
What do you mean? This is footage of Dolphin.
FlyingFoxy  +   954d ago
I mean the headline that it looks amazing on Dolphin, it's nothing new because all games look much better on Dolphin and have been able to run pretty much full speed on any good rig built within the last 4 years or so.
ElectricKaibutsu  +   954d ago
Ah OK. I should give Dolphin a shot.

You know what would look better in HD?

Twilight Princess... Make that damn Demo for the wii u Work nintendo. DO IT!
Seraphim  +   954d ago
Lol was just thinking the same thing... the past couple weeks I've had an itch to go play Twilight Princess but I really don't think I could endure an SD game that isn't on my NES...
no_more_heroes  +   954d ago
That...was stunning. Both the graphics and the audio were just...BEAUTIFUL.

Something the WiiU should do out of the box. That is doesnt is a big fail.
BanBrother  +   954d ago
My piece of gorilla s*** tablet can't run it above 480p lol. If I try 720 or 1080, I can only hear the British guy and see still images. That being said, I noticed quite an improvement (at least in the stills). Hopefully Nintendo re-release the Wii Zelda games in a collection. Not just upscaled to HD, but add in more technical improvements for textures, lighting, AA etc.

Now I have to watch it on my PC tomorrow :( (Too lazy right now)

I'm hoping nintendo does HD wii downloads soon. I'm picking up a wii U in summer along with some wii games I neglected when I essentially disowned the system like skyward sword, xenoblade and galaxy 2. I'll be ultra pissed if I buy all of these games and then a month later nintendo releases them in HD for $20/£14.99 each!

Wow this game looks awesome.

I haven't played SS yet but if they made an HD remake I'd buy it for sure.
