Here we go! This week's Star Fox Assault cutscene is the Fortuna Briefing scene from the first level from the English version of the game. In it, the Star Fox team learns about Oikonny's attacking forces, and Krystal makes an appearance. All this in beautiful 4K and adjusted audio that won't blow out your speakers!
"Wait a minute... if it's 4K, why is it a square video?" Sharp eye you've got there! See, it turns out that Star Fox Assault doesn't support widescreen. I found that attempts to make it do widescreen with the emulator tricks and codes resulted in stretched textures (such as the Corneria Logo in the background becoming an oval instead of a circle) and generally changed the way the game looked from the original. That's why, for these kinds of cutscenes where you need to see the whole frame, I elected to use 4:3 video like the original game. Don't think you're losing quality, however. I set the width of the video to 3840 pixels (4K resolution width), and kept the aspect ratio the same. This means that in the vertical, you get 2948 pixels instead of the standard 2160 pixels. So this video is actually higher than 4K resolution.
As with the Shot Difference Video that was posted last week, there are some differences between the Japanese and English version. I will post the Japanese version tomorrow, along with... a surprise. See you then.
