    mario can only look so good...

    I was thinking how good all the character developement has been from the first smash bros on 64 to brawl on the wii, but what about the next gen console's?

    will nintendo go HD and if they do will mario and friends lose thier 'cartoon' appeal?
    Nintendo's graphics can only go so far untill mario starts to look like a human which would be strange and would take alot of nintendo's charm away.

    so what is going to happen to all those original 16 bit characters we know and love when nintendo decides to take a step up to high definition and next generaton graphics?

    they would keep mario the same but other games would have better graphics, so would mario games for that matter though the characters would stay the same.

    Agreed with SuppaRoy

    Just look at smashbrosh. Also dont forget the worlds they are in. They can give those a lot more detail.

    I think they will keep Mario the way he is, with added details of-course. Mario is Nintendo's mascot after all.

    The gamecube had the power to make Mario look more "human" as such, but just because consoles are more powerful graphically does not imply that the artistic style of the characters will suddenly change from "cartoonish" to life-like.

    Although you do raise a good point; the hardware limitations of the Nintendo 64 did assist in making Mario look more cartoonish with flat-gourad surfacing colouring Mario as opposed to proper skinning.

    The same could be said with games like Secret of Mana on the Super Nintendo, with the sprite-based graphics the game felt more like playing through an anime series or manga comic than a game.

    I think it's important to remember that good graphics do not make good games, they just illustrate it.
