These screenshots were supposed to be showing off the capabalities of the Wii U and how it can match the graphical output of their competitors. I’m afraid to say that they fall considerably short of doing that.
At best, these look like they’re hitting the bottom of the Wii U’s graphical barrel and I’m really hoping these are some early “unfinished” shots and not indicitive of what the final product may look like. Now, this may also have something to do with the fact that original developers Rocksteady aren’t handling the port, that honor is going to Warner Bros. Montreal Burbank Studio.
I guess we’ll get to see if the final product looks any better when Batman: Arkham City Armored releases with the Wii U on November 16th.
