3DS visuals at over 1080p (2500 x 1500): Pilotwings Resort

3DS Tribe writes: "The full-size versions of these screenshots are gigantic – 2500 x 1500, fact fans – and the detail is incredible. We were worried that Wuhu Island wouldn’t look that good on a handheld but we have just been blown away."

3DS Tribe have covered more on Pilotwings Resort including the news Monster Games are the game's developers - however the new screenshots for the game have 1500 vertical pixels - originally at 2500 x 1500.

Looks good for a DS game.

it looks good for the 3ds which is more powerful than the ds or psp. Its like having an awesome portable gamecube

I think "Gamecube"'s settin' it too damn high. I mean, remember Baten Kaitos, Wind Waker or FF: Crystal Chronicles?

More powerful than the Gamecube.

Didnt you used to have more bubbles? Anyways, look at this video, the 3DS is not a DS.

Same goes for Neckbear, the 3DS is even more powerful than the Wii.

By the way, ( to those of you who comment before watching the video ) watch the video first. The game is only 20% completed and is already looking amazing.

Looks like a Wii game! I love Pilotwings. I must be the only person getting a 3DS at launch for this.

I wonder how it stacks up to the Wii Sports Resort visuals - I think 3DS has better effects though - it's amazing how great the visuals look at 2500 x 1500, sure there are a few blurry textures about (obviously because 3DS shows the visuals at 400 x 240 or 800 x 240 in 3D mode) but it just shows how great the visuals are when they still look pretty respectable at a high resolution.

The same goes for Zelda 3DS - the recent screenshots for the game were at 800 x 480 which is Wii resolution. It still looked great at 4x the pixels the 3DS would have outputted at.

Where do these screenshots come from then? Because yea the 3ds screen is only 400x240(not even better than original psp, but not the point) so how do you get these high res screenshots from it then?

disgaeapuchi4468d ago

No idea - they are probably "development" screenshots from Nintendo. I say this because the preview Metroid Other M screens were in 720p.

Shok4467d ago

No, it's just 400 x 240 to each eye. The whole picture is 800 x 480 though.

They are likely rendering it on a PC emulating the 3ds.

soren4468d ago
