hopefully PS4 and x720 games dont cater for WiiU aswell cause WiiU would hold back the games drastically.

Big head guy is cute.

Why don't WiiU internal projects have some sort of AA they can all use? The jaggies are everywhere.

Bug going how much DOF this game rely heavily, it would only kill the last bit of thiny detail you could see on pikmins and other stuff. So i guess it's better off.

i'm sure that won't be the case. nintendo will be left with no third party support from the big franchises like they where with the wii. untill of course they release the Wii-U-U 5 years into the next gen cycle which is "almost" as good as the PS4 and 720...lol

Pikmin is one of the greatest things ever but this game alone will not sway me towards Wii U, they need to show/ announce Zelda, Metroid and whatever Retro Studios are up to.

Still, not much on the PS4 is exactly giving me wood at this point either...

As for "holding back" multiplats, that's pretty asinine, when the fuck has that EVER been the case, if Wii U even has many multiplats they will be the inferior versions, just like on Wii. Still, if I were into game development the Wii U has many interesting possibilities I would like to explore but too bad so called AAA game development has zero balls. It's all about safety and sales numbers, Nintendo would be better off cultivating many new first party partnerships with smaller studios who have some creative drive instead of pandering to the lowest common denominator.

The reason Pikmin looks so basic is because it spent most of it's time in development as a Wii title.

That said, the Wii U is clearly underpowered, even when compared to relics like the X360 and PS3.

The depiction of their eyes now looks creepy
