Nintendo: No need for Zelda in 4K resolution but Pikmin would benefit from 4K

Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto said recently that he doesn't think the Legend of Zelda series would benefit from being presented in 4K resolution. He added that the Nintendo series that would benefit from it is Pikmin

Nintendo first give us a full fledge 1080p game then you can talk about 4K. ;)

mrbojingles1101d ago

There are already a bunch of 1080p Wii U games and there are more coming out, first party and third party like Wind Waker HD and Smash Bros

"There are already a bunch of 1080p Wii U games"

The only ones I know about are Pikmin and Bayonetta. Which are the other ones?

NihonjinChick1101d ago

Nintendo is already steps ahead of you.

truechainz1101d ago

so it is not okay to aim high for the future? If you are not okay with game companies improving themselves then you should find another hobby

khowat1101d ago

I think Zelda in 4k would look rather well too

Many people who have seen 4k tvs say that it is a significant improvement over 1080p and the simple bump in resolution is something you have to actually see to believe

Is it about the smae as SD to HD or bigger than that?

khowat1101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

This should help although SD can also mean 720x480 or 640x480

as you can see its much larger than just HD and also much larger than the jump from SD to HD

What are you thinking Nintendo????

mrbojingles1101d ago

What do you mean? 4K for an action adventure game like Zelda does nothing to change gameplay, whereas Pikmin would be enhanced since you could add more enemies and Pikmin on screen. I'd love to see Nintendo IPs in 4k someday but that doesn't mean they'll PLAY better because of it.

LOL_WUT1101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

Nintendo underestimated the transition to HD so what makes you think they are more than capable of pulling off 4K?

Also when they release something that rivals Halo or GOW in 1080p* then let me know but, this whole 4K talk is just that, wishful thinking. ;)

Realplaya1101d ago

@LOL_WUT You were in another article praising the WiiU now you come here on this one and become a bandwagon A Hole. Dude pick a side already.

mrbojingles1101d ago

What? How is that comment relevant and relating to this story?

die_fiend1101d ago

Ok let me show you how the comments on n4g work

'What are you thinking Nintendo'
'Canning the Wii U'

Sheesh

I like Nintendo because they are very calm at the graphics and power side of games, not rushed to do everything in max like the others. It's actually funny, and they instead deliver great gameplay.

wishingW3L1101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

don't come with that bullcrap when the Wii U costs almost the same as a PS4... That's like saying that you're happy with your $500,000 crappy Corvette when for almost the same price you can get a freaking Ferrari!

Sony and Xbox deliver great gameplay too. That delusion of Nintendo fans thinking that only Nintendo does good gameplay is annoying as hell.

andrewer1101d ago

I get a console for its games, and Nintendo has more to offer to me than another right now. So yeah I paid $350 to play the games I want to play. That's my logic though, if you just want power or something keep thinking that way.

chrispseuphoria1101d ago (Edited 1101d ago )

*facepalm*

I think this company has lost it or they've gone extremely lazy. Seeing Zelda in 4K with a large open Hyrule Field would be a dream. It would be like the jump from 2D Zelda to Ocarina of Time. It would be that huge. I wish they'd just think a bit more into the future rather than the past. Man, I can't wait until Miyamoto steps down so someone new and fresh can be in control of their franchises or *gasp* create new intellectual properties.

mrbojingles1101d ago

So how does 4K resolution help Zelda's gameplay? That's Miyamoto's point.

JaggedCarpet1101d ago

You mean all of the new IPs Nintendo creates all the time? Just because they're not as big as Mario doesn't mean they're not new IPs. Miyamoto is also working on a new IP, himself, so...

SAYGUH1101d ago

That's what I've been saying all along, him & Iwata need to retire. Blind Nintendo fans agree with everything they dish out & never give criticism. They never listen or change anything. Zelda would look killer playing as that tech demo or 4k resolution, I dont really care for Pikmin
