Shin’en’s recently announced Wii U eShop title FAST Racing NEO will feature “hyper real graphics” according to a tweet made by the developer earlier today. The follow up to 2011’s FAST Racing - League for WiiWare, will use between 4K and 8K textures to impress from a technical standpoint.
The revelation concerning the upcoming racing game's graphical prowess was made in response to a question asking how it feels to no longer be hindered by WiiWare's 40MB size restriction. The thread can be seen below:
@GoldMetalSonic Since FRN we use 4-8k textures. Means hyper real graphics but 16x storage. Happy this is no prob on WiiU eShop— Shin'en Multimedia (@ShinenGames) November 19, 2013
Considering how well Shin’en overcame the 40MB limitation in FAST Racing - League, graphically and content-wise (take a look at our review here), this is certainly exciting news. Are you looking forward to FAST Racing NEO's 2014 release? Did you play the previous game, and if so, what did you think of it? Let us know in the comments section.
