i remember this game be much faster. it looks so slow on those videos.

We talking frames or the kart speed?

If its frames its cause Youtube is capped at 30 fps, when the game is 60 fps of course.

If you talking kart speed, its cause some previewers are playing 50cc or 100cc, when 150cc is the standard fast pace speed.


i was talking about of kart speed.

oh so there is faster karts? good to know

It's not faster karts (I mean yes there are customizable kart parts that make you faster) but I was talking about modes of play.

50cc, 100cc, adn 150cc also determines aggressiveness of the CPU (taking short cuts, using items, better accuracy).

1080p/60fps? Should hope so with that level of graphics.


What is wrong with the level of graphics? How should it be better for a Mario Kart game? It looks really impressive at some stages, you aren't limited in the far view, it runs solid and fluid, it has beautiful art direction.

One way it could be better is adding some AA, for example.

Nothing wrong with them for a cartoonish kart racer, just saying 1080p/60fps should be easy when not pushing graphics at all.

I would be really surprised if it wasn't. It's not exactly a graphical powerhouse.

Not saying it looks bad at all, the colorful and cartoony artstyle is quite pretty.

Agreed. I've been saying for weeks that graphically it's pretty simplistic, so 720p/60fps didn't make much sense. It's good to hear they've hit the 1080p/60fps mark instead.

Now they just need to work on that AA and AF :p



I am impressed by this! Next gen doesn't start until Nintendo says so! Keep on sucking it guys.

I'll let Digital Foundry be the judge.

I doubt it. My magical eyes say that it's 720p with the same AA method as 3D World ;)

We can't be sure if it's the same AA as 3D world, but it certainly looks like an equally low level method >.< At 720p the AA would have made the jaggies rather obvious, but if they've hit 1080p then it should be a lot less of a problem than before, which is good ^^

Still, it may not be much of a technical power house but it sure is pretty.

Maybe I'm going insane but isn't Digital Foundary part of Eurogamer; who reported this article?



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Might be so but that article sounds more like a press release than an actual test.

They are part of EG but DF is a separate "department" so to speak. I'd be surprised if the author of the article went to them to check it was 1080p/60fps, but that doesn't mean he's wrong (hopefully).
