Our Wii U videos of Shantae

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is a platform game available on 3DS and Wii U. Third episode of the Shantae saga, we are dealing with a very pleasant game which is particularly efficient. Art direction is very nice, even though it will not to everyone's taste. We strongly recommend that you start the adventure now if you own one of the two consoles. Four gameplay videos showing the beginning of the adventure are included in the news.

Again... I just don't get it :-/
In your opinion, which one out of these filters is the most enjoyable ?

Lazy devs. Any homebrew emulator on Xbox 1 (yes, the very first one) does better.

I prefer the 3rd image quality with scanlines. At least to me, 2D retro games without scanlines look horrible and those 2x-4X filters (forgot the name) in the 2nd image look out of place if playing full screen - though not in all games.

2× SaI scaling

I prefer the original image, Sal just destroys the details in the image and scanlines hurt my eyes.

Those scanlines may hurt because it's a PS quickie i made. There are better, believe me. But to each his own. The point is: Devs should at least implement those filtering options so everyone can choose them individually and/or combine them. Bilinear, SuperSai, SuperEagle, Scanline, DotMatrix, CabinetMode etc. At least do your homework dammit !
Scanlines only:

2x SaI, thanks for the reminder. Been a long while since I played any emulated game. Tastes vary differently, but I agree, developers should offer more options, otherwise you end up with a game not suitable for full screen.

Soo... how is the game? I've never played a Shantae game and it looks badass.

I always thought Shantea's first appearance was on SNES, when it was originally on GBC. Still, it looks so familiar, like I know this game all my life.

I think just upscaling it looks the best, screw the filters, just give me the pixels, also i have the Shantae game on steam and i think it looks great.

Reminds me of Alladin.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I love my Thinkpad Yoga. Shame they don't really make it anymore. There are like 50 Yogas/Flips and one thinkpad but it's bigger. (1 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: there are a fair few apps now that do the job well enough for me not to miss stuff on desktop. i'd likely return to desktop to finish anyway. (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Maybe I'll grab a new Mini soon and a 9.7 inch pro after the refresh. Maybe they'll be "cheap" (2 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX i have a 12.5 inch laptop too (Thinkpad Yoga). And while the digitizer isn't as good as Pencil it does have the benefit of running real applications. (4 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: it wouldnt be mine either, but it would be a replacement to my ipad, so i kinda want a bigger upgrade...plus i like more canvas size. (5 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They're just stupid expensive. $700 for a ten inch ARM tablet is kinda stupid. That Apple tax. (6 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd be satisfied with a 9.7 since it would not be my primary pen input device. I think. (7 minutes ago)
