Zss and Wii fit were not playable in the demo, so we shouldn't judge them just yet.

This shows again the missing power of Nintendo systems. Even on PS2 were more upgraded character models!



3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

You're focusing on the wrong things. All of the switch pictures are better - Snake and Zero Suit Samus benefit from Physically Based Rendering which means lighting is more natural based on the material of cloth they are wearing. In the Wii version, lighting was pre-baked on the character, and the Zero Suit Samus in Smash 4 has unnatural glow which gives the cloth material a very plastic look.

Wii Fit trainer's and Zero Suit Samus' hair looks to have a much higher texture quality and higher polycount.

Don't focus on the actual textures, focus on texture quality. Don't focus on raw lighting, look at the lighting engine. Don't focus on pure reflections, focus on physically based rendering. Smash Bros Switch is a superior product visually.

That sounds like something a Kirby fan would say to try and convince that rainbow curse looks better than The Last of Us. Im not buying it. 



I don't understand the op? All of these pictures show that it looks better on Switch than Wii U. There were some stylistic changes, but the detail is sharper on the Switch, and it will only improve as we get closer to launch.



The game isn't done yet.

Just go look at comparisons of Kirby star allies E3 2017 vs launch graphics. I imagine the same will happen for smash



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

No! Snake and Samus...how could they? I also spotted some downgrades to some other characters, maybe stages but they definitely made improvements too. From what little I've seen it looks roughly on par with the Wii U game but they have prioritised in different areas. I'm totally happy with that, I don't need Smash Bros to look any better really.

This game is on the ps4

That must mean it's less powerful than the SNES!

How else could you explain these graphics!?

Play this on your SNES:

Thank goodness he can't.
