FINALLY some news. There's definitely some differences in how certain graphical eliments are handled and tweaks to the art style in terms of rendering, probably to get the best look at the best resolution possible. Kinda like the Yooka-Laylee port, which featured loads of discrete tweaks that really helped provide an ideal balance of general fidelity/feature set and resolution.
I'm encouraged, it looks like a good port effort. Now to see what other touches come besides voice acting. An orchestrated soundtrack would be a freaking godsend.
