Yesterday, Nintendo announced at Nintendo Direct the latest game from revered development team Monolith Soft, and reactions were all sorts of ballistic. Given the implied scale of the game- a massive game world, coupled with the kinds of battles and monsters that no RPG in the last six years has delivered- alongside the incredible graphics, it was the first real instance of a 'next gen' game on the Wii U. But given its scale, and how good it looks, is it the first real indication that the Wii U won't be comically dwarfed like the Wii was, once the PS3 and 360 successors are released? Is it the first next gen looking game? Hell, based on this feedback, is it the new console graphics king?
