Today we take a look at Need For Speed Nitro! This is the Wii version of the game running on the WiiU. The Nintendo Wii doesn’t output via HDMI natively so solution for this is a WiiU running the game at a native 480p and then using an mClassic HDMI add-on to upscale to 1080p. You can see in the comparison video the difference mClassic makes for these older games.
This Nintendo-exclusive release of a Need For Speed Nitro focuses on a Arcade-like gameplay. Although the graphics have a comic-style the cars are licenced.
The races include classical circuit races, K.O. races, time trials, and races where you have to pass a certain point at the highest speed possible. Also the Drag- and Driftraces introduced in The Need for Speed Underground series are here as well. In this part the police is present again providing high speed chases with the player with the possibility to take their side too.
New to the series are Power Ups which repair your car during an event for example since cars can get damaged even to the point that the performance is affected.
The action takes place on public roads which can be found in Singapore, Madrid, Cairo, Rio de Janeiro and Dubai.
