Title: HD N64 Trilogy Mario Party Wallpapers
Post by: StalfosKing on July 28, 2017, 02:49:25 PM
So I stumbled across Waifu2X the other day and ended up spending waaaay too much time playing around with it. As it turns out, it upscales N64 pre-rendered 3D artwork pretty well! I started making wallpapers for personal use just for fun and I decided to share them here. Some turned out looking like they were natively 1080p, while others didn't come out quite as well, but still nicely. Remember, I did not make the art, I simply took the images, stuck them into the Waifu2X upscaler, and cropped them for 1920x1080 or other widescreen resolution monitors. All artwork/images belong to Nintendo.

Haha, glad you like them. I think they turned out really nice, too. It looks almost like it was natively HD.

What are your favorites? I'd have to say Wario's Battle Canyon is mine, hands down.

Just added a Mario Party 2 Box Art one. This time I left it uncropped because I didn't wanna chop off any of the box.
