What the fuck... that looks amazing coming from an indie dev... How did the manage to pull that out of their ass?

The team at Shinen is known for being technical gods when it comes to Nintendo hardware, especially with limited resources. Nano Assault Neo was pretty as hell and was only ~80 MB. Also, look at Fast Racing League, which was a 40 MB WiiWare game that looked better than most retail games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyvY7xyuHSI

    Wondering what the resolution it will run at, but still looks good.

    Shin'en have said in the past that for their Wii U titles they will likely target 720p/60fps with v-sync.



    I'll keep my expectations in check until I see actual footage running, but this definitely has my attention.

    My only concern is going to be the physics and course design in the game as they far more so than graphics make or break this type of game.

    Physics and course design in the first FAST Racing game were pretty good, so they have a solid foundation to build on.



    Hopefully they put in some effort to make the gameplay good. The latest Nano and Jett Rocket titles have been worse than their predecessors and thus were disappointing games.

    And please, scale back the motion blur when boosting.



    Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

    The  first game had brown levels too:

    Who's to say FRN won't also have blue oceanic levels we haven't seen yet? ;)

    Thats nowhere near the same kind of look tho.

    The Wiiu shot is washed out desaturated-brown/blue compared to the mostly popping colors of the Wii game. Turbine Canyon is probably the worst looking stage on Wii but even that screams "COLOR!" compared to FRN's new screenshot.

    The screenshot killed the little hype I had for the game. I mean I am sure it has better looking levels (from its art direction they most certainly wont be alot better tho since all of it will be washed out to have a consistent art direction) it still is bad to chose the worst possible image to release to the public.

    This image made me hyped since they said this car is an in-game model. And obviously im a sucker for colors!


    But I also hate the "fog overlay" on the top 30% of the screen in vanquish the bloom in WindWaker HD and that almost all anime are washed out today so whatever :)

    Btw the Wii screenshot works because orange/yellow + blue is a famous and visually pleasing color combination

    I still think it's a big stretch to rule out a game's  visual vocabulary from one screen showing a desert environment. There will likely be a number of other settings that are more colourful, not to mention the cars themselves.

    Jett Rocket II was a lot worse than the first one, I agree with you there, but I found Nano Assault Neo an improvement over the 3DS original, it just felt more balanced and polished.

    Its short and a bit unbalanced if anything were to be my complaints which makes the gameplay, particularly from the latter, swing wildly from play session to play session. I've had entire starting levels go by without a power-up and struggle to finish with decent points, to starting levels where I end up with 4 Sats and a V-gun and fall asleep at the helm.

    Wow! Way better than people budgets in the millions of dollars manage to do on the Wii U.

    Nobody budgets millions of dollars for Wii U ports. I seem to remember reading Ubisoft saying Wii U ports of AAA games cost around 1m euros. Minute compared to the budgets allocated for other versions.

    Which is why their games don't sell on Wii U.

    And even still, Shin'en can pull these level of graphics off on a fraction of that budget. Either way you slice it, Shin'en putting the top names to shame when it comes to what level of graphics they can pull off on the Wii U.
