#1955058 Tetsuya Nomura explains why Kingdom Hearts III has taken so long; also says t...

We knew a long time ago about him changing assets from Luminous Studio to Unreal Engine 4. Porting assets, depending on how much they already had, takes a ton of work. You can't blame him for taking till now to begin the final stretch of that game because porting assets alone is as arduous as creating an entire other game.

KH3 was gonna come out eventually. And they made a smart decision to go with a complete engine and spend resources porting assets then having to deal with BD2 on an unfinished engine.

Bet all my munny that it's Riku... Again.

But I hope they pull a KH2 with Roxas... Maybe Kairi, since she's the only other light that wasn't playable. Ever.


#1954781 "Coming 2018" worldwide or JP first?

Posted by Clouded Sun on 16 July 2017 - 06:31 AM

The International trailer said 2018. We should expect 2018 for everyone.

The month and day are a different (toy) story.

He sounds really sad that he can't voice Kermit anymore. What a way to go, man.

It is depressive that we still have to be low hyped over Kingdom Hearts 3 four years after the announcement


Typical Square announcing titles far before they launch. I feel you.


#1949137 Tetsuya Nomura to provide "final information" on Kingdom Hearts III a...

FFXV didn't get a 5th year in development when tabata asked for it and it's a game that is currenlty sitting on the number of 9 million units shipped. SE is a company and they want money , LIKE IT OR NOT the game is gonna come out in 2018 , idk when but square won't spend a 6th and final year of money and resources on a game that won't surpass their previous juggernaut. Don't get me wrong they are putting a lot of time and effort into this but as someone who knows about how the industry works(and intends to work in it) and and has read every tidbit about this game since 2013 , this game will not have a 6th year of development time. If Nomura tells them i can't have it done they're gonna release it anyway because a deadline is a firetrucking deadline. They released FF XV in the state they did which is their biggest franchise and focus so why would they not with kh3? Also if the game comes out and feels unfinished it's not Square's fault but the teams and mainly the director's.
Peace out.

Never disputed 2018. The 2018 release is definite. But to push it out to the Q1 period of 2018, the way all the cards are falling right now, it is not going to be early in the year. I expect release information by TGS/Jump Festa for Summer/Fall of 2018.

I understand that the business part of SE makes a deadline for the developers because the business part wants money. And lots of it. That is especially why FFXV came out the way it did, with extreme amounts of cut content and just overall "meh" in terms of story


#1946423 (Fake) Kingdom Hearts Headed To Nintendo Switch (and New 3DS!)

Posted by Clouded Sun on 03 June 2017 - 05:40 AM

Huh. You learn something new every day. :3

Yep, that's the idea (actually just back pedaled and found out SE doesn't use Crystal Tools for KH like they did for most Final Fantasies, they use their own engine. Not even KH1 and KH2 were made by the same engine, which makes sense - the physics are COMPLETELY different! Edited the post for more correctness)

But yeah, it's not uncommon. That being said, UE4 is a fantastic thing for developers to use - I myself am using it and it's super easy to make things look fantastic.


#1946420 (Fake) Kingdom Hearts Headed To Nintendo Switch (and New 3DS!)

Posted by Clouded Sun on 03 June 2017 - 05:30 AM

The title says fake broseph.
Also the link only takes you to the Nintendo Switch gamefaqs board. When I looked up Kingdom Hearts, there was nothing there related to this.
And besides, this Another Dive thing looks too freaking outdated for the Switch considering the Switch supports Unreal Engine 4 and the KH2 engine was a PS2 thing.

I believe some people have a misconception of what Unreal Engine 4 actually is...

Unreal Engine 4 isn't some "magical-game-upgrade" thing that's equipped with every console. It's a bunch of tools you can use to create a game. Most often times, and in the past, developers use their own tools (a la Crystal Tools and Luminous Studio, the latter being its latest games engine). Unreal Engine 4 has nothing to do with graphics (even though it makes things look better with easier "automatic" graphical tools), and the fact is, if this were a "remaster", it wouldn't even be using Luminous Studio OR EVEN Unreal Engine 4; it'd be using the OG engine it was made with.

All the HD Remasters are just being emulated by the PS4's hardware with different shaders and updated models and textures. Again, how good a game looks is NOT based on Unreal Engine 4, any game engine with proper support can make identical (perhaps not exactly the same) graphics. It's just a tool.

Tl;dr just trying to help squash the misconceptions about Unreal Engine 4. It's a renderer and graphics tool, and developers use it to make their lives easier when adding things to the game, like graphical fidelity. Just cause something is SUPPORTED by Unreal Engine 4 doesn't mean it automatically has better graphics; in fact, most AAA studios that make big games don't even use that engine (CD Projekt Red uses their own proprietary engine to make Witcher games, Sucker Punch does too, and SE does for the most part since before ).

This wouldn't even use UE4; this would use an emulated version of original assets created by their KH engine. Everything from physics to lighting is tied to that; that's why they had bugs in 1.5 + 2.5 PS4.

I'm a Ventus. I hate listening to what people tell me to do, and no one respects me quite yet. I'll prove them all wrong when I become important... Probably.

-Adam
-Pascal
-9S
-6O
-Eve


And although I've met Emil, I still don't know much about him. So I'll reserve judgment.
