Wii U Games’ Graphics Would Need To Be Downscaled On PlayStation 3 And Xbox 360

According to Frozenbyte’s Mikael Haveri, compared to the other HD consoles on the market, Trine 2 expansion Goblin Menace’s graphics are best on Wii U. Haveri believes that Trine 2: Director’s Cut requires a considerable amount of processing power and, therefore, would have to be downscaled if it were to release on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. Trine 2: Director’s Cut launches November on the Nintendo eShop and includes a new mode called “Magic Mayhem,” which is designed exclusively for Wii U.

“Basically that does require… well, not huge amounts more graphics processing power, but still considerable. If we would publish that on the other consoles, then I believe that there would be some small downscaling of what it is right now.”

“I think we didn’t start really until sometime early in the year still, but the fact was that we had a lot of things going on. Then when we got over the old things, we started with the Wii U and then in two days we had it running,” he explained. “We had it running really fast. So it was more about knowing your own tech and then having that ‘eureka!’ moment of making it work on this new hardware.”
