A minor change in the wording of one ad revealed that Nintendo’s upcoming Super Mario Bros U game won’t be displayed in native 1080p resolution.
Yesterday, the game’s official website displayed an ad that says “"Experience Mario like never before... in full 1080p HD, only on the Wii U console!"
But today the same ad was inexplicably rephrased to say "Experience Mario like never before... in high definition, only on the Wii U console!"
Nintendo is yet to respond to requests for clarification. In the meanwhile, the most reasonable explanation is that Super Mario Bros U will run at 720p.
Nintendo’s Wii U console is scheduled for release on November 18th, 2012. The basic SKU will be sold for $299.
