because it's the only way the console can keep up with competition graphically. Call shading ages well and doesn't take nearly as much power to look good and run smooth as hell.

If new Zelda was in realistic graphics, can guarantee it would be 30fps, look abysmal compared to the competition and the gigantic would aspect probably couldn't be implemented.

annoying thing is that there is only so far you can go with cell shading. It has a noticeable graphical ceiling before it doesn't look impressive anymore.

I'm just tired of cell shading for every game.

Cell shading can take just as much power to render as realistic visuals, the hell is wrong with people? Also, TC you are wrong.

New Zelda graphically looks way more interesting that it would if it was cruddy realistic graphics ala Twilight Princess. I am so glad they are sticking to toon graphics.

lol, not all games on Wii U are cell shaded, but if that's what you have to tell yourself to sleep at night, go ahead.

i doubt Nintendo cares about keeping up graphically w/ PS4/XB1.....2 consoles using tablet cpus that struggle to hit 1080p 60fps for every game....when PCs been doing that for years

Nintendo cares about releasing games that get the best reviews.

Games that are the highest selling

games that ppl will remember for decades

I love how a game is immediately trash if the graphics aren't superior...

Oh ok. The mario games, and yoshi = Toad games are not cell shaded. try tell that to somebody who didn't know the minute difference. They both look like it to me, along with most people.

Maybe it's just the colors they use. To bright and vibrant every time. It looked nice at first, but its now like this is the only look the console is capable of producing. there is no line between games. they may as well all be the same.

Realistic graphics look nice. They would at least be a welcome change to the current set up on Wii U if you nut huggers stopped defending it.
However, the Wii U isnt powerful enough to do that without showing up the big power gap between the Xboxone PS4 and Wii U.

Cell shading or bright vibrant colors are the only way Nintendo can release games wiout this power gap being too noticeable.
