One down, one more spec hurdle to go. Shin’en Multimedia has officially announced via Twitter that the sequel to , will officially run at the smooth-as-a-baby’s-bottom 60 frames per second, exclusively on the Wii U.
The news comes courtesy of the good folks over on My Nintendo News, where they caught wind of the tweet from a reader’s tip. You can check out the tweet below.
We’ve known for quite some time that Shin’en was aiming for some pretty high specs for on the Wii U, but it’s good to have some form of confirmation that the upcoming eShop racer will run, fully buffed at 60fps.
Now as much as I would love to show you some footage of the game running at those aforementioned 60 frames per second, unfortunately there’s no gameplay clips available at the moment.
The only thing we can do now is hold on to our butts and hope that the game turns out clean and pristine, as far as gameplay and controls go.
