This will be a badass game if it actually does turn out in HD lets hope it does

Kami3724d ago

a 360 just to play the game.

lol ya this is good news still wish there was a chance of seeing i on ps3 the game needs a usable dpad.

TrevorPhillips3724d ago

this game will be great if they used unreal engine

Rare always makes their own engines, I don't think they have ever used a external engine.

I thought this was one of the requirements to release a game over Xbox Live Arcade.

Soul Calibur uses a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Killer Instinct would be awesome in HD.
No brainer purchase for me.

One of the requirements is to update the graphics, but I think that might be arcade ports though.

Well, SC is actually 16:9, since it has the sides just chopped off, with the SC emblems on those sides. I'm still sad that they didn't include so much from the original game.

Is aspect ratio what determines whether a game is HD?

Let's look back at Megaman.

Megaman 1-6 on the NES - AWESOME!!

Megaman 7 on the SNES - TERRIBLE!!


Megaman X1-X3 on the SNES - BEYOND AWESOME!!

Megaman X4-X5 on the PS1 - GOOD!!

Megaman X6 on the PS1 - TERRIBLE AGAIN!!

So you can see why I don't think that updating it is a good idea, right? At least this way, it's guaranteed to be as awesome as it was 10 years ago! :)

The games developed in 4:3 for square tv's/arcade cabinets won't be changed to widescreen 16:9 unless they are completely remade which isn't common.

For those unsure of resolutions, 480i is standard definition while 720p, 1080i and 1080p are considered high definition. These numbers represent pixel density. Aspect ratio only determines the shape of the image on screen. Most HDTV's are wide screen tv's.

Can be played in HD but looks exactly the same. For a game like this they should remake it in HD. Or give it the smoother thing like they did with the Sonic games.

not all XBLA are HD,i have Street Fighter 2 and its not, nither is Contra. Most re-made games get HD upgrades though, like 1942Joint Strike, Commandos and Bionic Commando, i love the trailers they do for those games. They start em off with the old graphics then merge in the new ones to show you how awesome they've made it now.

If they are going to go back and render all the games assets in 720 or 1080P. I would assume it's possible since all the content is based on prerendered CGI.
