Project Cars: Wii U version will hit 720p, will “look and feel amazing”

Monday, 18th March 2013 15:40 GMT By Dave Cook

Project Cars will look rather lovely on Wii U, developer Slightly Mad Studios has confirmed.

Speaking with NowGamer, studio creative director Andy Tudor said, “We always prefer to aim for 30fps generally in order to keep gameplay-specific features like having more cars on track or better weather effects.

“So that’s standard across all consoles, and we’re more likely to utilize the native 720p support of the Wii U for launch especially since our physics and rendering systems demand a lot of processing power in order to deliver a truly next-gen experience.

“All you need to know is that when you get the game, it’ll look and feel amazing and you’ll want to show it off to your friends.”

Seeing as the Wii U build maxes out at 720p, is Nintendo in danger of looking even more outmoded once games become more demanding like Slightly Mad’s racing simulator? Let us know below.

Thanks Nintendo Life.

    I don’t know how it can ‘feel’ amazing.

    The Wii U pad doesn’t have analogue triggers, so i’m not sure how well it’s going to cope with a driving sim.

    Mario Kart will be fine but I can’t imagine a game like this working too well on the tablet pad.

    Also 60fps for driving sims on console should really be the way to go. I’d rather sacrifice some other effects to boost the fps any day.

    At the moment, it looks like the PS4 is going to max out at 1080p and 30fps on most games (driving sims and fighting games hopefully 1080p / 60fps), with lots more effects going on.

    Thing is 30fps needs to be locked solid. Im really starting to find console games dipping into the 20′s terrible to play. Dark Siders 2 was awful, Cyrsis 3 on 360 is almost un-playable IMO.

    Also, screen tear needs to be a thing of the past for PS4 / 720, it actually ruins a game for me now, again; Darksiders 2 being a good example of a shitty product from a tech perspective.

    :sigh:

    Is it that PR quotes always sound annoying or the countless comments caused..
    Wii U is not a third PS360. We got it and can let earth rotate again.

    Can someone please tell me why Nintendo left analogue triggers off the gamepad as it’s frikin baffling me!?

    I’d consider getting this for my Wii U over 360 if it had analogues…
