Since the 3DS will come out, they will use polygons more often. So does that mean that there will be no more sprites? (I don't mean like title screans and stuff)
It's not like Nintendo is the only living company that uses sprites.Baby Luigi Lacertae said:Hm, after I played a game on the 3DS, the OP does have a point on the death of sprites. Wouldn't it be difficult to make a completely sprite-based game on a system based on 3D?
I'm sure Paper Mario will use sprites, however, for major stuff and it will look great on a 3DS.
Exactly. And textures are technically sprites. They are just skins on a model.Goddess of Death said:Keep in mind that menu's of every single game to date use sprites.
This can't be changed, unless you want to see a screen filled with polygons, nurbs and textures.
