Toki Tori 2 runs in 720p at 60 FPS on the Wii U

Toki Tori 2, Wii U title which was announced to run at 1080p months ago, will be running at 720p and 60fps.

I think for a game like this 720p is more than enough. Trine 2 looks brilliant and that is only running at 720p as well. I guess the developers would rather aim for 720p at 60fps instead of 1080p at 30fps.

That seems reasonable. I don't really see how 1080p could make such a simplistically styled game look any better anyway. It's like saying an iPad screen with 4K resolution will look significantly better than an iPad with a 1080p screen... it honestly won't. Higher resolutions benefit bigger screens primarily, just as higher resolutions are better for games with extreme realism and detail.

It's all about pixel density and this is why the 480p display on my gamepad matches the quality of my 42" 720p TV. Also I would take 720p 60fps over 1080p 30fps hands down.

It's not really all about the density though, That's why the Vita screen looks better than the retina display.

"Also I would take 720p 60fps over 1080p 30fps hands down."

Are you telling me that the Wii U is too weak to handle a 2D side scroller at 1080P at 60FPS?

Seriously the game isnt that amazing graphically speaking which is why im a bit dissapointed that the Wii U isnt capable of running this title at 1080P at 60FPS.


Exactly which is why its a bit strange that a "true next gen console" isnt capable of rendering a 2D sidescroller at 1080P at 60FPS.

Edit: Its a downloadable title for the Wii U from an Indie developer which is probably why they dont have the budget to produce this title at 1080P at 60FPS.


Im not expecting either the PS4 or the 720 to be able to play all games in 1080P at 60FPS but im pretty sure they will be able to handle a game like Toki Tori at that resolution and framerate.

This is why i wont shift from 1080P on PC games, 60fps is very important.

Have a high end card last a while and give nice framerates at 1080p rather than lower, 30 and below is barely playable to me and not good enough.

No it's because by lowering the resolution you can get more graphical detail as well as higher framerates.

Plus wiiu upscales to 1080p anyway,and with it achieving Native 720p when u play in 1080p on wiiu it looks amazing anyway.

@MasterCornholio they added new features, the video you post is old, I do not think they did a video with the new features and enhancements, but they had a choice, I do not know if this article show it, but they had 1080p at 30fps, or they could of did 720p with 60fps

here the link of the features added

"Toki Tori 2 was 1080p @ 30fps, then we made it prettier and it was 720p @ 30fps, now it looks and plays great at 720p @ 60fps"

I'd much rather have 60FPS over 1080p most of the time, although in this instance I'm not sure why they can't aim for both - it's not as if the game is throwing around polygons with gay abandon, it's a 2D sidescroller.

Rockefellow1979d ago

What the hell is Toki Tori, anyway? Should I bother paying attention to this? I consider myself in the know with most games, but I only recognize the name, no idea what it actually is.

Is the writing in this article autistic, or have I become dyslexic suddenly? I'm sure the game will look good, I agree 60 fps providing smoother gameplay is more important

Psssst... It's a Google translation of a German article ;)
