The resolution and frame rate for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury has been revealed and may possibly differ from each other.
For the last couple of years, Nintendo has ported over a large portion of the popular titles from the Wii U’s catalog. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pikmin 3 Deluxe, New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze were all fantastic titles, but we Wii U die-hards had been asking for Super Mario 3D World to come over as well. Nintendo has finally answered our prayers with a port of the game and these are the specs you can expect to see.
Game Reactor went hands-on with the game and was able to detail out the resolution and frame rate for both the base game and the new Bowser’s Fury mode. Super Mario 3D World will run at 1080p, 60 FPS while the Switch is docked and 720p, 60 FPS when playing portably. Bowser’s Fury will run at 720p, 60 FPS while docked and 720p, 30 FPS when playing portably. It should be noted that the resolution of the latter could possibly be higher since the source didn’t clarify between docked and undocked.
We already know the port is going to be running much faster compared to the original title on the Wii U. For comparisons, the Wii U version ran at 720p, 60 fps.
I can’t wait to jump back into this excellent game. I beat it when it released all the way back in 2013 and fully intended on 100% completing it, but once you go down that rabbit hole, you probably will move onto something else. On top, of the already excellent original game, Bowser’s Fury looks like a fusion of 3D Worlds platforming with Super Mario Odyssey’s fantastic open world atmosphere.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is set to release next month on February 12 for the Nintendo Switch.
