Take my rupees. ;p
This game is definitely running at 1080p 60fps its a 10 year old game with simplistic graphics so this shouldn't come as a shock to anyone. Looks beautiful.
Baonetta 2, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros. Wii U, Super Mario 3D World, and DK TF were all confirmed to be running in native 1080 and 60fps. The Wii U is a beast. Not as powerful as a PS4 or even the Xbone, but still significantly more powerful than current gen consoles. And it's amazing considering how tiny in size the Wii U is compared to the other two next gen consoles.
Even though this is one of my least favorite Zelda games, that is quite the accomplishment. Hopefully they can do the same for Zelda HD.
They can defiantly do 1080p...but 60fps?IT depends how graphically far they go... if they have really nice graphics like that tech demo you saw 2 years ago almost for legend of zelda at e3,then it wont run at 60fps.
Nintendo actually confirmed that that demo was in 1080p 60FPS. I think they can do it if the reduce the number of on screen objects
I would really HOPE they can run a game from two generations ago at 1080p 60 fps. It's not like they'll need extra smooth models or detailed textures, the game is cel-shaded.
60 frames? SOLD!
Did you expect less with the remake of a 10 year old game?
Actually, if you go with the info provided by the N4G troll comments, the Wii U is about as powerfull as a PS3 or 360 if not less, consoles that could barely run PORTS of 10+ years old games at 720p...
@PygmelionHunter I dont know why u got the dislikes but youre actually right. People have been trolling the Wii U's graphical power on this website since launch. Its funny after seeing Mario Kart 8 and Monolith's X everyone pretends to forget what they thought about the console 2 weeks ago.
Lol i love the phony and microdrone trolls. Dont listen to the BS, this game is re made, not reskinned or simply put in 1080. If the just put it in 1080 then it woulda been a launch title easily.... so no, this is a beautiful game on wii u, that is true HD....AND 60fps....an accomplishment that not many games are doing on ps4 and xdone. thank you come again.
A new feature this game will add is; The player can now write something on a piece of paper then put the message in a bottle which will then wash up on the shores of other players’ games = GENIUS. Sony and microSOFT will soon follow and do something similar like they always copy watch ha haa
Because we couldnt just Send a message or HIT the share button? Look stuff up on youtube to solve a problem? you know... instead of throwing hours away searching the beaches far away from the objectives like a madman for a useful message in a bottle going through yo mama jokes, "UR GAY LOL" or "I like tents" type of messages... Its kind of a neat detail, but you almost make it sound like nintendo invented wikipedia or e-mail. Added: Yeah my response was kind of for the worst case scenario/Parody... but I hope you see where Im coming from atleast.
Is not about surfing the sea in search for the bottles, is about sailing to your next destination and coming across what looks to be a bottle with a scroll inside < understand now?
Sweet day one gonna look beautiful in 1080p 60fps :)
B..B..B..But I thought that wasn't possible on the WiiU?
That's it! My wii U is getting back some love! I will play the sh*t out of this game. The dissapoitment is that i think this is one of the best zelda games... I dont think new zelda;s can match this one:D That's it im buying a second wii U:D
I want the black one. I got the shitty white one with 8gb of space. I preordered the black one, but they gave me the white instead. PC Richards sucks balls.
Day 1 buy for me looks and plays awesome.
i haven't played this classic back in the day but im sure will with the HD game
So an year old game will run on 60fps at a Resolution of 1080p? Sorry, but if I Play Ps One games on my Ps3, they are 1080p and 60fps too, so no reason to be happy about this.
Your comment barely even makes sense.
Why is everyone talking about how the game has to run at 1080p 60 fps because it is an old and Cel shaded game when they completley remade the game from the ground up.
lol look a new sony fanboy is born
Actually no games on either the ps3 or xbox 360 that say they do 1080p on their box can actually do it they all basically run at 720 and rarely run at 1080i.
Theyellowflash, not everything based on Fantasy must have a sense, my sense is another than yours and yours different than mine. Sorry, but someone must tell the truth, otherwise there would be a world of blind People, even if it's hard to take, you must accept my Point of view. That actually makes sense, right? Emotional writing of a passionate gamer like me rarely has a common sense, it's just pulling out your thinkings and emotions about certain decisions and aspects. It wouldn't make sense, if we all had the same worldview, my friend of the sun. Gnahahaha
Are you high ?
Comment of the week!
Sound like those indoctrinated liberal kids "you must accept my point of view". Everyone's opinion is right because there is no wrong, right? Besides we totally "value" your opinion here at news for gamers. Maybe one of the best games ever made totally remade in 1080p isn't anything to be exited for because randominternetassholenumber4 doesn't think its as impressive as his shooters. I bet your super hyped to rebut GOW for vita. That was on ps2, rereleased in a collection, re rereleased in the ultimate collection and now RE RE rereleased on vita in 540p. That's awesome but silly little remake of Wind Waker sucks, should've been 2160p and 240fps (because anything less would be uncivilized). Stupid last gen WiiU with its stupid no drm policy, free online, and used games. You should also change your name from MagicSword to MagicMushroom because your incoherent blabbering only makes sense after a bag of shrooms. I'm sure it prob made sense in your head but damn bro, sense make it did not.
Looks like we have a troll i am so glad nintendo fans do not do this to sony, and microsoft articles, nintendo fans just enjoy their games, and have fun, i am getting this day one, and am gonna play the heck out of it, and have so much fun :)
vakarian75, listen! You're an from ground up remade game of your parents...
Just shut up your not even making sense your just mad we got you beat.
Its because Sony just added trophies and a higher resolution but with games like the Wind Waker hd and both the Halo and Fable anniversery additions they basically made the game from the ground up changing the overall look of the game how it plays and adding in more content like how in Wnd Waker hd they said they changed the end where you had to search for the triforce pieaces at sea.
once again nintendo shows the industry how to do a proper a hd remake. I'm looking at you sony
ICO says hello. Come to think of it, which Sony HD remakes didn't cut it??
None of Sony's HD collections did anything other than adding trophies and a higher resolution. The games are pretty much exactly the same. Nintendo's remasters have taken a different approach; it's a single game but it is given a complete visual overhaul to look brand new and in certain cases has the controls tweaked/fixed and some new content is added. Halo Anniversary Edition also followed this approach.
?? Windwalker looks just the same as it did on the Cube. What, 'complete visual overhaul'? And if Nintendo want to tweak the game, then remove all that tedious sailing, and the Triforce padding at the end. Bet they don't though...
