FAST Racing NEO is out now on the Wii U eShop, and as far as we're concerned it's a fantastic racing game. It delivers pacey action and looks great, standing out one of the store's best titles and also helping to fill that sci-fi racing itch some may have.

Intriguingly, our chums at Digital Foundry have now taken a look; for those interested in how Shin'en brought together handsome visuals at 60fps there are some interesting insights. There are plenty of techniques that have made it happen, and despite the resolution being relatively low, overall DF praises FAST Racing NEO as a showcase for Wii U.

When you put everything together the end results are simply fantastic in motion. It's an impressive looking racer here with a blistering frame-rate and beautiful visual design. With a resolution upgrade, it would look just as fresh on PS4 or Xbox One and holds up well despite running on less powerful hardware. Still, as incredible as it looks, the low resolution sticks out as a blemish on an otherwise great package. How much this impacts your experience is going to vary from person to person, but if you can look beyond that, there is a lot of impressive tech behind the scenes.

Still, if you own a Wii U and are looking for a tech showpiece with superb playability, look no further than Fast Racing Neo. It's not F-Zero but it's unique and satisfying in its own right and might just be the single best game Shin'en has produced so far. It's an interesting example of the strengths and weaknesses of the hardware and one of the most visually unique, accomplished games on the platform to date.
