Third-Party Wii U Launch Games Will Run At 1080p

Nintendo confirmed that its Wii U launch games will run at 720p. However, third-party Wii U games that will be released this holiday will be running at 1080p. During a recent Wii U Experience,  Nintendo representatives stated that the Wii U versions of Batman: Arkham City – Armored Edition and Assassin’s Creed III will run natively at 1080p.

      1. Super nicee because the visuals are awesome and Batman Arkham City and Assasin’s Creed with obviously have great gameplay! They are both top notch games.

      2. it was confirmed by ubisoft that assassins creed 3 will be running at 60 fps as well. and having a high frame rate really does add to the gameplay. tbh the main reason i play games more on my pc is purely because games run a lot smoother than if i played them on the xbox

      3. The numbered Assassin’s creed games have some pretty good gameplay, and I’m pretty sure 3 will have some nice improvements.

    1. It does make the games look alot nicer, but 60fps is where its at, Bioshock has a weird option where you can boost the frame rate, you get slight screen tear, or whatever its called, but you can really tell the difference, runs alot quicker and smoother, and make the game look better

              1. This is a fact… Wii u won’t stand a chance when actual next gen systems are released…It’s the wii all over again… The wii had the same graphics that a GameCube offered back then… And the wiiu is offering graphics that a ps3 and 360 can handle… What’s the difference tho? Nintendo puts a shitload of gimmicks into them and call it next gen! Who would just buy a Wii u just so that you can play games on a tablet rather than on a classic controller? It’s silly… Nintendo hasn’t shown to us how the wiiu is a next gen system. And it’s sad how nintendo said they are trying to aim the console at the core audience… And now they say that they are going with the same strategy that they went with the wii… Only better…

                1. How fucking far do actually think the graphics are going to get? The current generation graphics are just fine the way the way they are. For example, UE4 is almost exactly the same as UE3, just making the particles better. In the end, it is not much of a big improvement. Plus, no matter how people want to put it, gaming will always be about the gameplay, not graphics. If it was all about the graphics, then people would just put the game in and stare at the screen not doing anything. Graphics should be a bonus, not the main focus of a game.

                  1. Take WrestleMania on the Xbox (original) for instance. The graphics were incredibly stunning… but the play control sucks big time and doesn’t delivers the overall fun factor playing that game. So what have learned if nothing else?

                2. It’s the Wii all over? So it’ll sell at least 30 million copies more than its competition? Good to know.

                  No matter how much you trolls try, you’ll never be able to say that Nintendo lost this generation and back it up with facts. It doesn’t matter if people bought their Wiis and then sold them to other people. It doesn’t even matter if they just let them gather dust for 6 years. The fact still remains that they bought the system.

                  Sony is in deep **** financially, something I really hope they get out of because they make good games. You’re gonna counter this by saying Nintendo are losing money as well aren’t you? Well they’re not so please don’t. They didn’t meet their budget expectations, which is considered a loss.

                  As for MS, they’re pushing Kinect and SmartGlass. Those things you call gimmickste Wii U, well MS were awfully quick to snatch them up and use them for their own.

                  Now even after this whole post you’re gonna call me a gay fanboy who’s taking it up the ***, aren’t you? Well here are some facts for you. I’m a gamer. I own three systems and two portables from this generation. Why? Because I don’t live in my moms basement and can actually afford it.

                  Now please, crawl back under the bridge you came from and please don’t ever bother us again.

The wii u seems like a cool idea to us avid gamers, but I don’t think it will come even close to selling as good as the wii. I hope it will as I’m going to be in line the first day it comes out and I don’t want Nintendo to pull a pricedrop on me again.

People who say this don’t seem to realize why Sega failed in the hardware business… It wasn’t because of one simple bad console…it was because they were pretty much flooding the market with hardware… Like the 32x and Sega cd when everyone new saturn was coming out and immediately stop supporting them and moved on to another system 1-2 years after launch… That pisses customers and developers off…so bosomy isn’t going in that direction right this minute anyway

    1. To be honest, I do not see a point in comparing the WiiU graphics with the PS3 or/and the Xbox360 and pointing out that it’s better. It’s been six whole years since the other two got released, so isn’t it the very least to expect the WiiU to be better than them? I just don’t understand why people keep acting like it’s something fantastically awesome for Nintendo to have a system coming up which hopefully has better specs than two six years old systems. It gives me the impression that those people don’t even consider the WiiU as next-gen, since they keep comparing it with the current generation the whole time. Wouldn’t it make much more sense to compare it with the other two up-coming next-gen systems? I think it would.

      1. It’s fanboys comparing it to current Gen systems, it’s fanboys saying it’s not as strong as current Gen, it’s fanboys who are written post, articles and blogs saying that it isn’t going to surpass the xbox 360 or ps3 graphics, even Micrsoft claimed it was just an xbox360. So who r u referring to? Nintendo has said many times they’re not directly competing against Sony/Micro..it’s Gametrailers, IGN, Gamespot, Xplay and others sites full of fanboys that are overly concerned that their favorite systems will be surpassed and fear Nintendo wining another generation. Plus u can’t compare what isn’t out yet! So until those systems get released that what we’re faced with….and it nice to see Nintendo all U haters up!!!

  1. Interesting news. But, I am more cynical to this from a representative: when they mean “run” at 1080p; will it actually be upscaled to 1080p, like most games? Or will the native resolution for the Wii U multiplat be 1080p and not the Sub-HD resolution?

  2. I’m sure ports running at 1080p will just be upscaled. as for nintendo they probably don’t want to reveal the full graphical power of the wiiu at launch so that’s why we won’t be getting 1080p from them sooner.

              1. Except the fact that the Wii U will have games running on both 720p HD and in true native 1080p HD, compatible Wii games and accessories, better online interface, video chat, Near Field Communication.

        1. we will see… it depends, because the ps4 and nextxbox may release in a time frame where graphics can get better than 1080p. but i doubt it

  6. This is great news!!
    I’m tired of playing 720p games on my 1080p TVs. Hopefully this’ll provide a better jaggie-free experience!

    1. To be honest, id prefer the framerate be 60fps than have 1080p, but 1080p is always nice, itll just take a while before develipers get used to the WiiU, their approaching it the same way they do with the ps3/360, but by the sound of if, its built and works alot differently

        1. Yep, but even with the games that are just 720p, theyre staying at 60fps. Youd be surprised how much of a simple improvement can really boost the games visuals

    1. Umm… no console will even do such a thing like that. Not even the PlayStation 3, before you just wave out. The PlayStation 3 can’t even support 100 controllers of its own.

      Can you do me a calm and composed favour? Stop blowing things out of proportion.

    1. Common sense already denies this. They’re reallllllllllly going to spend extra cash in graphics on these launch ports to have it run at native resolutions and FPS that almost no existing console games run at right now?

      Ooooo, boy. Seems legit.

        1. Keep fooling yourself, you’re getting upscaled 1080p ACIII/Batman running in at best 30-60 fps and you’re going to love it.

          1. In a pre-alpha stage of both games, you’re right. HOWEVER… Both Assassin’s Creed III and Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition will run in true native 1080p and in 60fps. Ubisoft and WB Games Montreal have already confimed it. Don’t deny it, Amir.

  9. Come November, 1/2 of the xbox360 and ps3 fanboys would have sold or traded in the consoles to get a Wii U. Why waste money buying games for consoles ala xbox 360 480p native upscale 720/1080 P resolution or ps3 720 p native upscaled to 1080 P that are last gen; when you can buy the same games on a next gen Wii U 1080 P/1080i native that can play all multiplats and next gen unreal 4 and CryEngine 3 designed games with ease. Nintendo fans have common sense High humble IQs and not bashful. Thus we patiently waited for Batman arkham city (all DLC ) included with extras armored edition. BUY A Wii U it’s a better wiser purchase.

      Buying a Wii is the stupidest choice ever, you have to be on some sort of illegal substance. I guess you like gaming on shitty decade old hardware though. With the same IPs over and over again.

                1. Personally, I thought Uncharted 2 and 3 were more enjoyable and of better quality than Skyward Sword (especially taking into consideration that game breaking glitch. Ouch!).

                  That doesn’t make me a drone though, it makes me have my own personal opinion.

                  Note: I enjoyed Skyward Sword VERY much. I love the Zelda series. I have been playing it probably before most people on this site were even born.

  10. Dude. Aeolous. However the fuck you spell it. Watch that demo of Wii U golf and if you don’t think that’s the coolest fucking way to play a golf game, why do you play games? “That golf game is shit because it doesn’t natively perform at 1080p and run 60fps.” <—- don't be that guy, aeolous. Play the fucking awesome golf game, and try and bitch about Nintendo's gameplay for once. Ocarina of Time wasn't developed by Sony, and it's the best fucking game ever. Microsoft didn't make it either. Who made the best game ever then? Oh, you know, the number one video game maker, Nintendo. Number one. That means best. Which means better than Sony and Microsoft. Which means Sony and Microsoft are worse. I'm saying this repeatedly because you have the thickest, most dense skull of anyone on this planet. STFU and play the fucking golf game. "Oh but it's too casual" Then go live in an alternate world where innovative gameplay doesn't exist you son of a bitch.

    1. “Ocarina of Time wasn’t developed by Sony, and it’s the best fucking game ever.”

      Wow. First of all: that your opinion, not a fact. Stop trying to make people think your opinion is the be-all end-all fact. Yes, it got great reviews, but so have plenty, PLENTY of other games. And other games have sold better and logged more play time. Again, your opinion is just your opinion.

      Second: stop being such a whiny fanboy. So he doesn’t live to suck Nintendo’s junk like you do? Who cares? How does that affect you and your life?

      Answer: it doesn’t. So do yourself a favor and keep your “zomg fuckhead, Nintendo is derp best! Herp!” comments to yourself. Cursing at him and calling him names doesn’t make your opinion fact, but what it DOES do is make you look terribly ass-hurt and fanboy-ish.

    1. And so what? Nobody seems to remember that PS360 has a lot of games that don’t run on HD (and when run, most are upscaling). At least Wii U games are truly and natively HD.

      1. That’s not the point. The point is that everyone else *is* running at 1080p, and taking advantage of that, but the company that made the damn console isn’t. That’s stupid and laughable. You can reason it any way you’d like, but it’s still laughable. Especially since AC3 and Batman, fr example, look 5 times more graphically superior to any of the first party games being released, so Nintendo can’t even use the excuse of “oh, we’re just making more graphically intensive games, so we’re running at a lower resolution to compensate.”

        1. You seem to forget some things. Nintendo games are running with 60 FPS at 720p, thing that any gamer wasn’t used to do beyond PC gamer. It’s not a big deal run at 1080p once the games in 720p are running at 60 FPS with AA on.

        2. i would just like to say that maybe they’re heavily using the gamepad as whereas 3rd parties are just using the pad for maps or anything that doesnt affect performance as much as rendering two actual things seperately…maybe im wrong but it still makes sence.. :)

  11. This is a good start for Wii U to have 1080p right out the door (although I wish Nintendo would have taken the time to make their games 1080p as well). I have a big list of Wii U games I am going to get at launch:
    1. New Super Mario Bros. U
    2. Assassin’s Creed III
    3. Batman Arkham City-Armored Edition
    4. Mass Effect 3
    6. Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge
    7. Darksiders II
    8. Pikmin III
    9. Rayman Legends
    10. ZombiU

    1. I’m betting you’re probably a teenager, and likely will NOT be getting all those games.

      I make nearly 6 figures a year and could not afford all of that at launch. There’s no way you can.

Off course not on same day but, he said: “I am going to get at launch”… probably “when” this games were lauched (despite the fact that these games are predictable to came out at Wii U launch, I doubt that).
