I wonder if this will be portable mode only like that 1 rhythm game. Couldn't imagine these sprites looking good all blown up without a ton of work going into the port.

Shantae Pirate's Curse and Risky's Revenge both look fine as minimal effort ports on the TV.

There were a bunch of indie games that kept the sprite look on the Wii U. And Blaster Master Zero looked just fine in docked mode.

Blaster Master Zero looks gross, however.

Those Shantae games aren't really Inti games; one of their artists contributed character illustrations but Wayforward designed and programmed everything.

Nah, I put around 15 hours into Blaster Master and it looks fine on the TV. It actually looks a little weird in handheld mode. And I never said the Shantae games were by IntiCreates. They're just examples of ports that didn't change much from their original handheld versions and turned out fine. Portrait art aside.

Holy shit this is perfect. I never got around to grabbing the 3DS striker pack, and a 60fps upgrade is the ultimate finishing touch. If this gets a physical version I'm sold.

One issue I have is why does Gunvolt still use the same aspect ratio as it did on 3DS? It feels like they're rebuilding some things and maybe enough that they should be able to make the game full 16:9.

Blaster Master did that also. Always feels weird when we get ports of 2D 3DS games and they don't do that on HD systems.

Hell Mighty Gunvolt Burst uses a boarder with a 4:3 aspect ratio (maybe to retain the classic look, but then Blaster Master Zero...), but that's at least full 16:9 otherwise... it's weird.

Changing the aspect ratio would probably involve both redoing a lot of art assets and changing several parts of the gameplay. There are a lot of boss-fights in Gunvolt where the battlefield is fixed to a single screen. If you change the aspect ratio, you would change the dimensions of the boss fight rooms. The devs would then have to completely redesign the boss's attack patterns to match the new room dimensions. There are similar considerations to be made for a lot of other gameplay segments.

So... will this actually come out in Europe? The last we have heard of the striker pack for 3ds I Europe is that they are still "considering" it.

I'm still waiting for it.

maybe Yacht Club skipped out on the PAL release (was rated at one point) on 3DS in favor of this one.

That was Mighty Gunbolt Burst, not this game. It'll likely be 30 bucks like the 3DS version was.

They confirmed it'll have the full set of languages, so you can import a copy from either NA or Japan if it isn't released in Europe.

... Kind of disliked the first game since I didn't like how it felt, but it now being 60fps as well as me never playing part 2 might make me pick this pack up if priced reasonably.
