@ whoever thinks New Dank City shouldn't be a hub world:

Wrong.

This game decided to go the embarrassing 3D Sonic / SMB live action movie route. It can't half ass that **** now. That needs to be OWNED. It's all-in at this point. You can't have that crap and try to sweep it under the rug, you gotta 100% go with it and let the memes be free

So how are the Switch's graphics compared to PS4/XBO or even Wii U? I can't find any concrete information. I mean, there's this but it doesn't explicitly say how much of a difference there is. There's some numbers which may as well be hieroglyphs to me. I am sure it doesn't match XBO/PS4 but I'm curious how big the gap is. It doesn't seem to be a whole generation behind like Wii was, for example, so maybe it's more like a Dreamcast VS Xbox deal when comparing it to PS4.

Is it even a noticeable upgrade from Wii U or is it basically a PS4 Pro for Nintendo?

Well here's a Zelda comparison, if that tells you anything:

The Switch versions of MK and Zelda run at a higher resolution than the Wii U versions. That said, what I've read suggests that it's much closer to the Wii U power-wise than the other consoles.

The PS4 can be bought today (with a game included) for around the same price of the Switch, so Nintendo is basically banking on the appeal of portability. Perhaps banking too hard.

At least the messaging and focus seems more coherent than the Wii U.

I'm going to be very disappointed if there isn't a horrifying romance plot between Mario and an uncanny valley hedgehog that makes you think the game was originally supposed to be in a completely different series.

Keep in mind, though, that the Wii U footage is potentially of a much earlier build of the game.

^ We don't know anything about how the footage was captured and what codecs it's been put through, and it's not comparing the same sides of the shot. There's really no control for it going on. Some of the shots clearly have altered lighting, the switch version has more rim lighting. The shaders could be a very different build for the Switch from the other, etc, it appears that there is more depth of field, but as mentioned earlier, we don't know what build either is running or anything of the like.

Comparing the newer hardware's ability based on the visuals of a game that was built primarily with the Wii U's hardware target in mind is a bit irrational, there's nothing to suggest the Switch isn't capable of much more than what it's been outfitted with. Anyway, this game is exclusive for the switch, supposedly running on the switch kit - judge it however you like but its graphical technology appears far in advance and afaik is running on a full version of Unreal 4:

The game is called Seasons of Heaven.

It's running a fair bit beyond what we'd associate with the PS3's capabilities. 1080p top res aside, I'd say if the system's doing that much with any dependability it will be entirely enough to make a graphically advanced game. Any relevant differences are going to come down more to software, not hardware.

^^ I guess we can pretty much confirm it, then, everything in New Donk City is DK themed:

Image

Considering that the game is named Odyssey, it seems like Mario may actually be visiting worlds from/inspired by different games, ala Wreck It Ralph.

My guess for New Donk is that it's based on New York during the time of King Kong, as a nod to DK's inspiration. The building at the end of the street shown in the videos is clearly based on the Empire State building.

Weird that they're suddenly using Yoshi's design from the movie.

The living hat thing is obnoxious. The special hat powers are awesome.

How long do you give it until people make art/fanfics about Mario using his hat's ability to control people for sexual purposes?
