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 (Wii U)

Nintendo first give us a full fledge 1080p game then you can talk about 4K. ;)
mrbojingles  +   718d 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?

Nintendo is already steps ahead of you.

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

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?
khowat  +   718d 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????
mrbojingles  +   718d 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_WUT  +   718d 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. ;)

Canning the Wii U
mrbojingles  +   718d ago
What? How is that comment relevant and relating to this story?
die_fiend  +   718d 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.
wishingW3L  +   718d 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.

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.

*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.

So how does 4K resolution help Zelda's gameplay? That's Miyamoto's point.
JaggedCarpet  +   718d 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...
SAYGUH  +   718d 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

I guess that makes sense. Pikmin focuses on smaller and numerous things happening on screen. Zelda is more big picture. I think it would benefit either way it goes though. However, its not like I have a 4k tv or monitor to display them on.
Jagsrock  +   718d ago
He's talking in terms of scale and detail Pikmin would benefit the most because of the perspective and style of gameplay,the impact would be greater. Anyways why does it even matter what he thinks since 4k gaming is not happening anytime soon. We will however be getting an HD Zelda which will hopefully have a gorgeous new art style and design even in 1080p.
ibroman  +   718d ago
I see an update for pikmin down the road, and who thinks the next major wii u update adds 4k resolution option?
BosSSyndrome  +   718d ago
Geez people he doesn't mean 4k on Wii U. He means in the future someday.
