Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is already one of the finest looking games Nintendo has ever released, but how could the series look if a new, shiny 4K version of the Switch were to hit stores in the near future?
Well, thanks to YouTube user Snazzy AI – who we’ve featured on the site a couple of times now – we can get just a taste of how Mario and co. might look while racing around in glorious 4K and at 60 frames-per-second. The video above shows an official Mario Kart trailer that has been upscaled for our viewing pleasure, so make sure to load it up on a 4K-ready screen and enjoy.
If a future Switch was to make use of Nvidia’s DLSS 2.0 rendering tech, it’d probably end up looking a little something like this. SnazzyAI tells us, “The cartoony graphics of Mario Kart perfectly matched with the AI upscaler as it didn’t have to worry about adding detail to the textures and could focus purely on increasing the pixels, smoothing out the edges, and maintaining the original look, while also making it sharper.”
This trick works wonders on most games, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you want more 4K Nintendo, check out the video below.
