Nintendo's finally starting to crack into the Wii U's custom hardware.
Great news, glad to hear that it will run that fluid even when I have a second player along for the ride.
Damn, Rainbow Road would look so nice in 1080p @ 60fps. I'm jelly. *Looks at WiiU prices on Ebay* Haha, this is so weird, i haven't been a Nintendo fan for so long, but i really wanna play Mario kart 8, the tracks and the visuals look amazing.
Good time to get one with the MK8 free game deal.
wii u with mario kart and free game bundle at tesco £199. I just bought my first Nintendo console since the game cube (3DS) currently playing the latest Zelda and having the most fun I have had in ages! http://www.hotukdeals.com/d...
@Walterwjr. I have also gone for this same deal, at the sub 200 price point (if only just) bundled with 2 games I finally cracked. Can't wait get to get some Mk8 split screen on the go!
Best Track list I've ever seen in any racing game to be honest. Or at least the most appealing to look at.
"Achieved" . How is 60 fps an Achievement ? Any game can be 60 fps by lowering the graphics details on it.
I couldnt resist now, was £200 for the mk8 bundle which would then also grant a free game download so was a no brainer for me! Like you i havent had a nintendo home console for some time but im going to pick up windwaker as my free game (favourite zelda game to me) and buy super mario 3d world. That will keep me going while theres nothing of interest coming to my ps4 in the near future
Hit me up if you get one man. You seem to be one of the few intelligent people left on this site. I'd love to race ya.
Thank god those Neogaf "insiders" confirmed the Wii U to be the lead platform. What would we know without them?
for such an underpowered console that really is an achievement
60fps is a design choice. PS1 did 60fps
That's not at all how it works, it depends on pixel size. Pretty much any console could run a game in 1080p 60fps, assets quality would suffer however depending on the hardware. Mario got a very unique artstyle which doesn't demand very advanced textures or models though, which works just great for that kind of game
Not true, it's just you Xone and Ps4 gamers have your priorities mixed up. FPS > Graphics
Calm down, they are using "Microsoft 1080p" ie. Upscaled to 1080p!
Pretty pumped to play this game.
Damn Nintendo! That's surprising right here!
Can't Wait to pick this up.
look at that sad disagreer going through the comments, trying to help his butthurt
I'm really bothered that this article doesn't have more heat. This is great news for Wii U owners! Why aren't more people interested to see this? :/
Their loss. I'm sure the word will get out. Saying 1080p/60fps in this generation is always going to get attention.
I certainly hope so. It's a lot of what people talk about when it comes to Xbox One/PS4 games. If Wii U has 1080p 60fps games, and those factors are what people focus on, then those people should be paying more attention to it.
Imagine it was about Xbox…MY God, we won't hear the end of it!!!
Split screen on my 120 inch screen is going to be fucking stupid
I think you meant awesome.
"Stupid" was used in the 80's/90's to mean "cool" or, like you said, "awesome". That's what he was going for.
and I guess you didn't get what he meant lol probably proves most defending this are 14 and under...
@inthezoneAC I was born in 1987 and hell I've had my fair share but never used "stupid" like that. I think this is just one that isn't very clear.
not everyone here comes from an english speaking country and necessarily familiar with english slang.
The disagrees here show the age of the typical N4G-er, LOL
Just because some people didn't understand what I was saying doesn't change the fact that it's going to be amazing also using the gamepad it will be a three player game luckily I have three kids so they will all be able to enjoy this in a way that I never could when I was a kid growing up playing two players split screen since da Atari 2600 days
Stupid, gross, sick, disgusting, wicked, they all work.
