Here’s a last little tidbit for the night before I get to bed and get ready for another day in LA tomorrow. One of the biggest complaints about Skyward Sword‘s E3 2010 showing was its graphical presentation (believe it or not) – particularly the way the in-game trees were rendered, which is so last-gen. Take a look at the image at left: the trees’ leaves are composed of a few solid flat objects and definitely don’t look very natural, so you can see where the grievances come from.
It’s about a year later now, and we’re finally seeing demo footage likely based on a near-final build of the game. Have the trees really changed between the last demo and this new one? See for yourself below.
