Game Developer Sumo Digital (developers of F1 2011/2012 and the Virtua Tennis series) has commented on the graphics of Nintendo’s upcoming console the Wii U. They claim the graphical capabilities of the Wii U are on par with the current generation of consoles – the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. They also added that the graphics could be slightly better too stating the Wii U proved to be very capable. The developer recently finished work on moving Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing to the Wii U. In a discussion with Eurogamer as they played the new Wii U version, the developers claimed that the Wii U proved capable.
“The racer allows you to pilot both aircraft and boat forms of your vehicle – necessary for each course’s airborne and aquatic sections. It’s similar to Nintendo’s own racer Mario Kart 7 in this regard, although Sega said that their project was started first.
The Wii U version allows players to use the GamePad screen for Remote Play, or alternatively as a second display offering a rear view.
You can even use the GamePad screen as a weapon-cam, allowing you to guide homing rockets around the course. But this feature can also demonstrate the perils of glancing from screen-to-screen: Eurogamer saw one racer look down to fire his rocket, stop racing, and manage to shoot himself instead.”
