Well, still no sign of this ever happening. Have the devs actually made any statements to say whether or not the whole idea was scrapped or are they still trying to make it work?
Personally I would rather they focused their attention on that instead of adding pandas and other pointless additions. I get that they are catering mostly for kids who happen to like that sort of thing, but surely the graphics update would broaden the appeal of the game? Maybe I'm wrong but it would be nice to know if it's still in the pipeline.
Haven't heard anything lately but all the additions of the Aquatic Update seemed much more useful, to me, than fancy graphics. If its a choice between an update like that or the graphics I will take the update every time. That being said, Microsoft probably has a big enough team that some are working on the graphics while others are working on updates. I doubt it is an either or type proposition.
The latest I remember the devs saying anything about it was this summer I believe on twitter. If I recall correctly they were having difficulties making them work over multiple devices. Could be the whole idea was a bit of an over reach to begin with.
Does seem like they should say something one way or the other considering they are well past the time frame when we were told the Super Duper Graphics would be available. That just reminds me of the joke that the next console released after the Super Nintendo should have been called the Super Duper Nintendo
