There goes all hope of ever getting a sequel or any character of the game in Smash.

Meh, I really don't think this will have significant impact on its sales. The frame rate is inconsistent, nothing about it being unplayable. Fact is it still had enough interest to muster 2m in funds

no wonder I had no idea it was 'remastered'

sounds like they just took the $2,000,000 and decided to keep as much of it as possible

is there anything left for the WiiU btw, Pikmin 3 (for now) and Xenoblade Chronicles X?

Besides Pikmin 3 and XCX the Wii U still has Super Mario 3D World (for now), Star Fox Zero, The Wind Waker HD (for now), Twilight Princess HD (for now), NintendoLand (obviously), Splatoon 1 (obviously), Paper Mario: Color Splash, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Sonic Boom (thankfully), Project Zero: Maiden of the Black Water, Mario Party 10 and Devil's Third. There are some eShop only games too like Pushmo World, Affordable Space Adventures, Star Fox Guard and Nano Assault Neo. It also has the only version of ZombiU that doesn't actually suck.

Finally, some of these games, while might be ported to the Switch in the future, will not be as good as they were on the Wii U. The Wii U was a failure, but it's undeniable that its second screen allowed for some gameplay improvements that are being and will be lost with every port to any other platform. There are entire games that will not be able to be ported at all like Affordable Space Adventures or NintendoLand.

So, as for the question: Is there anything left for the Wii U? Yes, there will always be. Because for better and worse, the Wii U was a unique platform that presented some games in unique ways.

I really hope PlatinumGames patches the Switch version of the game so that we could run the game at 720p in docked mode. I care more about performance than 1080p.

I wouldn't expect it

Microsoft handled hundreds of BC titles ranging from OG Xbox to X360 titles, better than this steamy pos, PG called remaster. And they were all free of charge if previously owned.

I'm pretty sure that's from system wide emulation and they just individually play/test each title for adjustments. Not the same as porting an individual games code.

There's no doubt that this is a lazy port though

That is the joke, that the emulation with smart delivery that updates res and fps across the board have a better effect than an individual port one.

Given the gulf in specs between Xbox/Xbox 360 and Xbox One I think its actually reasonable. The Switch probably couldn't emulate the Wii U even if it wanted to.

It's obvious they were either lazy with it or they rushed it when it wasn't ready. The fact it runs worse on PS4 and Switch than Wii U shows this. It's a bad port.

What about PS4Pro and PCs not being much better than WiiU?

What do you guys think about this?

You're absolutely right, this remaster is laughable and trash. If they cannot do the port job properly, maybe they should've just go for a remake, like Xenoblade DE.


Cause running low even on PS4 is not a good job, the Switch being the main platform.

Console wise the PS4 version is 1080p with aliasing and a mostly stable 60. Thats a good step above the Wii U version and a solid "port" as oppose to remaster. There is no PS4 Pro mode to be quite frank which is lazy indeed.



they should have made it a remake

joke aside
this once again strengthens my feelings regarding remasters and remakes
