The Wii U Will Have Launch Games At 720p

While Nintendo’s upcoming console lists 1080p as a supported resoultion on the spec sheets,  a Nintendo spokesperson on the E3 show floor said that all the games shown are in “native 720p resolution”. The spokesperson would not comment on if the games could be upscaled to 1080p. We just know that all of the games Nintendo showed off yesterday and are playable today are in native 720p. The show floor worker did mention that some games, like Pikmin 3, are running at 60 frames per second.

All of Nintendo’s first party titles and some of the third party ones like Zombi U will all run at 720p.

This is a bit underwhelming as the specs call for 1080p capable but nothing we have seen yet goes that higher. However, most games on the 360 and PS3 are native in 720p, as well. Perhaps we’re just seeing Nintendo playing it smart in the beginning to show off smooth gameplay.

Thanks to someone on N4G we were given the original report for this: http://wiiudaily.com/2012/06/wii-u-games-run-in-720p/
