Since last week I've received a few questions in-person and via e-mail about the upscaled Wii-exclusive artwork. It's been a mixed reaction of "great," "good," and "meh" from editors and fans alike. As some fans may or may not know we are implementing a switch for both the graphics and audio.
However, we want to show you a side-by-side comparison of what the original artwork looks like in contrast to the new pixel work done by Pixel. I probably don't have to say much, but the image above has the idle frame for Toroko from both the original Cave Story (left) and the upcoming WiiWare version (right). The image has been enlarged 800-percent but the pixel-ratio is still exactly what you'll see on-screen. So which do you like better?
