On Nintendo’s website, it once said New Super Mario Bros. U will run at 1080p. Shortly after, Nintendo replaced 1080p with ‘high definition.’ Now, via the updated official site for the upcoming Wii U launch game, Nintendo confirms that the 1080p part was inaccurate.

The previously stated information about video output for this game was inaccurate. The Wii U console supports video output of up to 1080p.

While all Wii U software titles display high definition graphics, resolution for specific titles may vary.

            • So you can’t, means you’re a pathetic liar of a Nintendo fanboy who under no circumstance should ever be discussing benchmarks of any kind unless he has the data to back up his claims.

              • It’s Native 720p as we all know. Is 60FPS cus that is the benchmark of the series and HAS been stated by Nintendo themselves (not rooting for article) and Does indeed Display 2 syncronized screens. If that seems so impossible to you why Did the Creator of Rayman Legends say that the wiiu can EASILY do 1080p on the TV 60FPS and 60FPS on the gamepad at the sametime????

                ANSWER ME THAT BITCH. GO ON . STILL WRITING THAT NOVEL AELOUS ??? HUH ?????

                And NO , I will not dig out that Micheal Ancel statement. It’s on this website buried beneath weeks of News .

                  Surprisingly, that still has not been answered.

                  • You know for a fact the 360 and ps3 can Barely Run Native 720p above 30fps.

                    Less than 5% of the ps3 and 360’s library is Native 1080p. And Ridge Racer looks like fucking Horseshit and so do those few other psn games.

                    So if you were to add in a second syncronized screen like the Gamepad which requires Asymetric Dual Rendering of 2 Images at once.

                    How could that possibly work ???

                      Back up your claims with statistical evidence and benchmarks, not guesswork. If you can’t, you are wrong and bullshitting until proven otherwise.

                      All the shovelware is less than 720. A lot of Normal games are less than 720 IE GTA4 and CoD etc. And most Average 720p no AA 30FPS.

      • What difference does it make? I played some beautiful games on the Wii, it wasn’t even HD. People are so spoiled these days with graphics, some of my best gaming experiences are from the SNES/GBA, and they have shit graphics compared to nowadays, but are the games any less fun? No. So consider yourself lucky that the game is in HD at all, and just enjoy the damn game.

  6. Why does anyone give a fuck? Do you REALLY NEED 1080p? I know you all want to see every hair on Mario’s sweet little head, but it’s not that big of a deal. Now, what is a big deal is the game itself still hasn’t given me reason to buy it. Smash 4, and Zombie U are the only games I know of for the Wii U so far that interest me. (Which is why I won’t buy a Wii U until Smash 4 has a release date) 1080p is the least of this game’s worries….

  7. most games later in the year would be probably 1080p but for now the small but good titles would run at 720p.The bigger titles like another 3d mario game or zelda, f-zero etc will most likely to run at 1080p.

With games like Donkey Kong Contry Returns and Super Mario Galaxy 1/2, the Wii has already shown that a carefully-made SD game can look far better than a rushed HD one. The higher resolution just makes it easier and adds potential if done right. :)
