Respected tech publication Digital Foundry has recently gone hands on with a near finished build of Splatoon and the results sound extremely promising. The site says that the preview build of the game delivers what they say is a near flawless 60fps and claims that this could easily be fine tuned before the game is released on May 29th. You can read their thoughts about the preview build of Splatoon, here.
Fortunately, even in its unreleased state, Splatoon delivers a near flawless 60fps update across the board with only the occasional dropped frame detracting from the fluidity – mostly unnoticeable in action, and something that could well be ironed out in the game’s final run of optimisation. The chaotic nature of the game mixed with a free aiming system certainly presents a performance challenge beyond the scope of most Nintendo games, but the results here are uniformly excellent. Without pushing the limits of the final game we can’t give our final verdict on the matter but, at this stage, things are looking very good indeed.
DF: -Looking good now but only until we find something else to bash it once it’s released-
That’s a bold statement.
Yyyaaaa!!!! I’m gonna splatoon in my pants!
1080p60fps, I guess that’s nice. But I just think people are being too bitchy about this, my favorite games arent in HD 720p/1080p or 60fps
most snes games are 60 fps
Too bad you couldn’t really use that feature much back then. You CAN notice a difference between 60fps NES/SNES games while watching a 30fps YouTube video.
What do you mean, “you couldn’t really use that feature much back then?” This is primitive tech we’re talking about here; I don’t think you could just turn the 60 fps on or off.
The thing is that developers couldn’t really do much with the smooth 60fps in terms of animations and stuff because of limitations (mainly space). The character movements and screen scrolling is almost always 60fps though.
Yeah FFVI is 60 FPS
It’s 720p upscaled to 1080p, like pretty much all Wii U games.
YOOOO COBI!!!! WHATS UP DUDE
Vote for Yamchaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
No third party characters. Only Nintendo
People on the internet:
I’m boycotting this game because it has no voice chat.
But I’ll let Sony and Microsoft f!@k me up the ass by paying to play online. I’m a real gamer, go home Nintendo durp.
Wtf is a “real gamer”?
Scratch that. Who tf calls themselves a “real gamer”.
Lots of people.
That’s people in general in a nutshell, these days, sadly.
Especially people who go out of their way to say certain games suck solely by virtue of the console they’re hosted on.
People that play a variety of games and don’t put up with bs.
It makes you look like a douchebag.
Welcome to the internet, it’s full of douchebags.
Thanks for proving point.
How was I being a douchebag?
Do you called yourself a true gamer?
I don’t like the word gamer so no.
A person who plays video games.
Then they should be called just a gamer.
Who cares about 60fps? Seriously? All I care about is solid gameplay and having fun. It’s like a bunch of high school boys comparing dick size over voice chat. What? No voice chat? All the better. Day one purchase. No matter what the frame rate is.
You can’t have solid gameplay without a solid frame rate.
True. I just get annoyed by all these people who base the quality of a game based on frame rate and resolution. Like Nintendo ever makes a choppy or incomplete game.
Frame rate is good though… for video games, 60fps makes a big difference…
Correction: You can’t have solid TWITCH gameplay without a solid frame rate.
Especially a precise shooter like this. Well maybe not precise but you know what I mean.
Everything fast paced (everything that requires reacting) should be 60fps.
That’s funny. Because that’s exactly what they bitched about MK8 over and Bayonetta 2. STFU Foundry.
They’re fucking hypocrites full of crap when they review Nintendo’s games with their outdated source of garbage tech and go crazy when there’s a single frame rate drop.
>>>You said you were done with Nintendo>>>
And you said you were done with your Phazon period. Still eager to find out what BS mobile game Nintendo is gonna dish out so you can trash it (as well as me)?
>>>Of course I’m done with my Phazon period, I have a name now don’t I?>>>
>>>And sometimes the creators must be corrected, even against their will>>>
>>>And their new Mobile Infantry crap only concerns me on an imperial sense, I have another mission to do under the guidance of Lord Yamauchi>>>
Ohhhh shots fired!
>>>Sonyan bullets are ineffective>>>
Tell that to the Titanic U.
>>>Except it’s not dead and the Sonyans did nothing, irrelevant>>>
It might as well be dead.
And BTW, I’m talking about Digital being stupid hypocrites from praising this unfinished game for having “near solid frame rate” when they bitched about the finished MK8 over the same thing last year.
I wish we could have voice chat with friends in our friends list. Playing MarioKart 8 with phone head set anyways. They need a better network infrastructure.
Or just be like everyone does… use a PC and Skype. Simple as that.
>>>Or do like real gamers do, play the game>>>
>>>It is unavoidable, it is the truth>>>
The only thing that’s true is that the you Nintendo Fucktards will accept any bs from Nintendo. They can’t even implement voice chat and make things more convenient for their fans…
>>>While the rest of you accept being lied to by the other two>>>
The use of two gamepads
The gamepad would revolutionize gaming
There won’t be any game droughts (even thought there were two)
The Wii U would have strong third party support
I’m sure there are many lies I’ve missed, but these are at the top of my head. regardless, have fun accepting the shit Nintendo gives you guys.
>>>1. That was only under the condition that people bought the Wii U in a large quantity and they never “promised” anything, they only said it was possible and considered.
2. In a way it did but they underestimated their own power which leads to point 3.
4. That’s hardly their fault, the Electrons lied during the unveiling, the Ubisians gave up despite only 2 months only while everyone else only made ports of older games most already played.
5. If I am to choose one thing I’m disappointed over and disgusted by is the cancellation of TVii and the other useless garbage, they should have conducted a discount for the countries that don’t get to use that feature.
Overall, it’s nowhere near as bad as the other 2, specially the Xbots>>>
I’m sorry, were you trying to make a point?
All I heard was “damage control, damage control I’m a fanboy damage control!”
>>>I’m sure I was damage controlling during points 2,3 and 5, go back into playing your “PS4 we have only interactive movies and generic Third Class games we would never survive without”>>>
Don’t get mad at me me because the PS4 is a better console than the Wii U. Such a shame, I had high hopes for it…
>>>Better at power perhaps but it’s flawed and pathetic as a gaming machine but you shallow graphicwhoring imbeciles are so easily amused by such Hollywood garbage>>>
>>>And if Nintendo is so bad, why are you all in Nintendo sites? That’s right, you’ve already gotten bored of your PS and Xbot games after only 6 hours that Nintendo related subjects and games offer the only true joy>>>
Do you even own a PS4? If not I won’t believe any bs you have to say about it. Let’s just say that the PS4 is what the Wii U SHOULD have been.
Since when did I say I didn’t like Nintendo, I’m just so disappointing with the Wii U that I’m fed up with it.
>>>I don’t need to own anything when they conduct things I’m against in every possible way>>>
>>>Whether they have games that are interesting or not, I’ve yet to to see any game that appeals to me enough to even consider buying any PS and even if there was in the future, as long as they have subscription fees to play online, useless defenses and shallow purposes, I don’t care about Sonyans at all>>>
PS4 looks cool… I admit, as many should, that the Wii U is great, but still underwhelming in the grand scheme… the stars aligned for a power play, perhaps even waiting another year for release if they needed it to bring the graphics up… it would saved them having to get a new console out for some years and would have garnered them all the 3rd party games and Sony and Nintendo could have squashed XBOX/Microsoft right out of the market, which I would have loved… Hopefully next time they do that… The technology on the Wii should have been an add on so that the tech evolution of the Nintendo consoles would have stayed in step… sure the Wii sold a lot, but in the long run, it hurt their console business. Games are awesome, Wii U gamepad is very, very cool… they just made an error and it happens.
People don’t need to get their feathers all ruffled because a corporation they support and like made misstep… Critical thinking and public voicing of the facts will get us a better console in the future… NX or whatever is actually coming out in the future
i don’t keep my pc beside my tv in the living room. does Skype actually work now? it used to be so shitty
Why should people be forced to use more than one device for a feature that should be a given for consoles of this day and age? If I use a headset and plug it into my computer to talk to my friends through Skype, I’m going to miss out on the game’s audio, unless I go out of my way and buy an audio switch or something like that. But I sure as hell am not going to spend extra money on equipment just because Nintendo fails to realize the demand of a feature that should have been taken for granted since the last gen. Is it really that hard to accept the importance of voice chat in team games, and that they’re shooting themselves in the foot with the decision to ignore it? Why not just give people a seperate app on the WiiU that can run simultanously with games, such as Party Chat on Playstation, so people at least have the option to talk to their friends without having to use 6563346 different devices at the same time for something as simple as voice chat? Like that, people would at least have the chance to talk to people in their friend list when Nintendo refuses to add it into their games. Sure, it’s not the same as having it directly implemented into a game that has random matchmaking for online matches, but it’s still something.
And please, don’t tell me anything about how you don’t want to hear children swearing or random people talking, that’s an argument as stupid as saying you don’t want online multiplayer in games because you prefer to play with friends in the same room. You have options, it’s not an either-this-or-that situation. You can just mute voice chat if you don’t want to hear others.
>>>There is still the possibility that they could patch it in later on>>>
Keep dreaming lmaooooooo!
>>>I could but I better dream of the Xbot extinction, one that will come true one day in the near future>>>
Tetrarch just ignore these idiots that waste their life in a nintendo site even tho they hate nintendo
>>>True, but I need energy to drain>>>
>>>Your work is going well, your new promotion isn’t far away>>>
HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH NETWORKS YOU IMBASEAL
ITS KEPINGBTHERE PRODUCTS CLEAN NO TARNISHING FROM BROFUCK MORONS
IAGREE VOICE CHAT SHOULD E FOR FREINDS THO
LOL NINTENRO INFASTRUTURE dude stop talkingdog shit like voice chat is some amazing thing that takes some superpowered onoine IDIOT
THERE INFASTUCTURE IS LIKE ANYONE ELSES THEY JUST DONTWANT THERE NETWORK AND GAMES DIRTIED BY THE IDIOTS
COD HAS VOICE CAT ON WII AND WIIU THATGAMES ONLINE IS JUNK AND LAGS LIKE SHIT
LOL TRYING TO LOOK CORE BY MAKING UP STORYS ABOUT NINTENDO
Preordered it two weeks ago for £24.95. It looks great, it is even cheap(er than the competition) and if that was not good enough it is also a new thing created by Nintendo. Ticking all boxes!
the only game shooter from years at 60 fps.
it’s unreleased state. do they think they are still working on the game when it’s releasing in a month digital foundry shows it’s intelligence again.
It’s releasing at the end of next month. It’s early April.
Does this news really matter?
The hype for Splatoon is real
When did they start liking Wii U games? These are the same guys who told us Mario Kart 8 is 59-60fps like it really matters
Hardly surprising, it’s not exactly a graphically demanding game.
More like it makes better use of graphics than others.
$70 retail in canada plus $45 for the amiibo set + 13% ontario tax = $130 bucks. not happening.
60fps and dm perfect controls
nice map designs, great modes how games are supposed to be….the 9acis aiming really defines this game and the interactive map
paint physic all over
flying -swimming- shooting -online and still 60 frames
i bet te file size is small to NINTENDO ARE GODS
This game looks fucking hype but I feel it needs more online modes, and more maps. If the only modes and maps there are are the ones they shown off, then that’s quite disappointing.
>>>Yes, I’m sure they would show all the game before they release it, said no one ever>>>
it willhave good maps more likely added free and more modes like freefor all and team paint battles other arcade modes
likely more free dlcif you have amiibo and of course paid for
this game will get long term support like hyrule warrors etc
