European Balloon Fight Updated To 60HZ

balloon_fight_bead_art

Nintendo Europe has revealed that the next eShop update on Thursday will see the original 50HZ Balloon Fight finally updated to 60HZ. The game is an updated European version of the game and has now been optimised to run at a similar speed to the US version and with corrected aspect ratio. Looks as though people’s voices on Miiverse were finally heard.

    1. A NES game ? lol …

      60HZ is the refresh rate of your TV or the software. FPS is completely different.

      For example all your Wiiu games will be running at 60HZ , but the framerate differs from game to game. 50HZ completely distorts the appearance of FPS as it is refreshing slower than 60HZ.

    2. what does this mean for people like me who already bought the 50hz pal version? will it update the game when played next time into the 60hz version? or do we need to delete and re-download it, so that it we now have the new 60hz version? please if some one knows i would appreciate the info!

  1. Awesome. Miiverse is amazing , so much potential for this sort of interaction with Devs in the future. Jools watsham of Renegade kid is asking people what sort of DLC they should put on the game. It’s awesome when you think about it.

    1. I’ve communicated with multiple devs on Miiverse. I was asking why Zenpinball doesn’t hav e a 3d option on Wii u. He said they never really thought about it…….okay.

      1. Too bad they’re shit, they have been shit since 2006 and they will continue to be shit. They keep on sucking and catching up. Nintendo can kiss their consumers asses all they want but we all clearly know Playstation will always be superior.

      2. Lol nope. It’s a fact. Playstation has better online, more 3rd party support, a more powerful console, bigger fanbase and is more relevant. It’s clear that Playstation is the best.

      3. The only thing Sony is good at doing is throwing a bunch of specs in a box. Their exclusives aren’t worth shit anymore.

      5. Uncharted, God of War, inFamous, Sly Cooper, Twisted Metal, Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo, Ratchet & Clank, Killzone, Resistance. Sony exclusives crush anything from the Mario Milk Crew at Nintendo.

      7. Nintendo has a bigger fanbase than Sony, xbox and PC combined. Don’t ever get that twisted. Even great grand parents in the mother lands of China, Africa and Israel know who the super Mario brothers are. People of all ages know nintendo. Tell another lie.

    2. balloon fight is a classic arcade game where, millions of dollars were made 1quarter at a time. its not a bad game, just ridiculously difficult. u have to be pretty damn hardcore to excel at the game,and for $.30 u couldnt pass it up, however for $5 meh rather buy megaman.

        Considering they recovered and counter-attacked you all from the devastation your leader Jack Tretton caused at E3…

        Maybe you should pull back your forces before they overrun your precious Dominion…

  4. Am I the only one who loves Nintendo just as much as Sony’s consoles? Why this stupid ass war even to this day? :/ I just love games in general and will buy whatever consoles I need to play them.

    1. Several reasons to why the “Console Wars” exists although most do it because it’s fun…

      Only a small minority actually hates other consoles (Xbox accepted)…

      And to clarify my position when it comes to the Sony Dominion, I don’t really have any problems with most of their games but they just don’t interest me…

      Except Little Big Planet perhaps and so on…

      It’s their arrogance I don’t like…
