Rumor: Nintendo customer support rep says Super Mario Odyssey’s highest resolution is 1080p in TV mode

Posted on October 20, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Switch

When Digital Foundry last analyzed Super Mario Odyssey, the outlet found that the game runs at 900p when Switch is docked. New information coming from a Nintendo customer support representative may indicate that it could go even higher. “On handheld mode, the highest resolution will be 720p, while in TV mode, the highest resolution will be 1080p,” the rep told one fan.

Before anyone jumps the gun, comments from these sorts of reps should never be considered the final word. Even if we don’t hear about Super Mario Odyssey’s resolution from Nintendo officially, we should have a pretty good idea by this time next week.

    Eh where is the real important information! PLAYABLE PRINCESS PEACH & GODDESS ROSALINA!

    • Tlink7

      Rosalina is just blue Peach :3

      • Locky Mavo

        Blue Peach > Yellow Peach

            Yellow Peach = Daisy ???

            Well we should all know by now where this will end up, so I’ll just save us the time:
            Waluigi > entirety of Super Mario character cast.

      Wait is that really a thing? Thanks for the spoiler tag :/

        What? No! I’m making fun if this “Rumor” and injected my own, just things I want to happen.

  • Justmadeanaccount2

    Resolution doesn’t matter. I only care if it’s fun.


    There isn’t much of a difference between 900p and 1080p yet people still whine about it…

    • Clumsyman

      And in a Mario game of a things. There’s places where higher resolution does make a difference; but not necessarily here.

    • To you. There’s 633,600 pixels of difference for the trained eye.

  • Operative

    I imagine it’d be an update down the line, if they do decide it. Either way I’m sure it looks fine

  • BK-201

    there’s probably a dynamic resolution solution there, nintendo seems to be using this a lot lately

  • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

    great, but who cares.
    we’ll be playing this gem and having tons of fun in just a few days <4

  • Pachirisu

    i’ll be playing handheald 90% of the time so 900p or 1080p… i personally couldn’t care which it is.

    though obviously 1080p is better and if they manage to reach 1080p… along with the 60fps… then that’s amazing

    • Melatelo

      Damn I’d be missing out if I didn’t play a game as big and beautiful as Mario Odyssey is without a TV

      • Pachirisu

        of course i’d play on the big screen first, but after a while it’s just a chore that’s easier and more convenient to play on handheld mode lol

  • Coonfoot

    Resolution doesn’t mean a thing if the game is fun enough. Or if you can find a way to make it prettier than it normally is, like what Mario + Rabbids did.

  • theFooFighter

    A highest of 1080? Sounds like dynamic resolution which honestly seems like the kind of technique Nintendo would be all over with them being so frame rate focused

  • Barricade

    The way he’s saying it (“highest resolution”) might imply it’s using dynamic scaling and resolution might vary between 900p and 1080p to maintain a stable fps.

    Either way, I’ve played this game on a show and it’s incredible, I wanted to wait some longer to get a Switch but In might actually get it now during the holidays.
