During the D23 Expo in Tokyo Square Enix showcased a new gameplay trailer of the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III, that will be released for both PS4 and Xbox One at a yet unspecified future date.
Take my money now.
aaaahhhhh...!!!! still cant believe this game is real
The game I've waited a whole two generations for. This is the best thing my eyes have laid eyes on in a while
Duel pistol keyblade tranformation.... That is all. O.O
dat fire spell fx o.0
Looks way further in development than I expected, but I don't see anything on it that couldn't be done on current gen. So they must be doing it for next gen because the game probably won't be out for a couple of years. Looks really fun though, can't wait to play it.
@ FamilyGuy They sold me with the dual pistol transformation. It looks like the boss fights will be even more epic than previous installments.
I don't know if my body can handle this...
Yeah, it almost seems obvious that this was a PS3 game for longer than it was a PS4 game. The graphics aren't exactly mind-blowing. But this is Kingdom Hearts. I play for story and gameplay.
Now that is Real Next Gen PS4 game visuals! And KH: 2.5 HD Remix is just around the corner for PS3!
Why does it say Xbox One at the end?!?!?!
The scale of the Rock Titan Battle is larger than anything we've seen on current generation. KH has always been 60fps affair. There is no way theyd get the Rock titan in that detail running in 60 on PS3. The graphics are already heads and shoulders above the 360 and PS3, there is a level of smoothness that isnt present on PS3 games. LR:FF13 doesnt even look or run this smooth. The Art direction has makes the game seem as if it can be done on previous generations but art direction is a design choice, not a limitation of hardware. KH3 wouldnt look this good or smooth if it were running on ps3. Still wierd to see an Xbox One Logo at the end of The Trailer!
That. Aladdin. Stage. I. must. play. this. game.
what aladdin stage? oh wait...WADIYA!!!
Nothing i have seen so far cant be done on wiiu, its so annoying that this game isn't going to be released on wiiu, a game like this would be perfect on a nintendo platform!! wtf is up with that?? regardless i will be getting it on the good old Playstation, but still i feel sad for wii u only gamers!! isn't this game supposed to be using direct x 11? and so this was why the developers said it wouldn't be on wiiu? But wii u can run direct x 10, which pretty much has most of the features which direct x 11 has, so again WTF??? it can handle tessellation and all the other neat tricks, so why cant they make a wii u version? am getting so tired of all the negative crap nintendo is getting!! Fair enough they have made some stupid cock ups, and i agree that most retarded Nintendrones don't even speak up or criticize Nintendo's mistakes, i for one do speak up, and their are allot of core gamers like me who game on ALL PLATFORMS, and so like to see all platforms treated fairly by publishers and developers! this is getting beyond a joke now!
@londone do you even own a Wii u last I checked only me and 5 other people owned 1 and it can't even handle ps3 360 ports that well how would it do a ps4 Xbox one port. Not only that but this gameplay is clearly prealpha and it looks that good runs that well hell no I don't see a third party ever making a game look that good on Wii u ( or any games for that matter lol) only Nintendo first party stand a chance at looking that good
Is it a bad thing that I suddenly can't breathe now because the amount of money being thrown at my screen right now?!
Hope I'm not too lost after all the handheld story branches, can't wait to get my hands on this gem. Big time nostalgia coming from this trailer!
If you only played KH1 and 2 I'm afraid you will be terribly lost. Especially if you haven't played BBB and DDD
You will be lost, thats what I'm worried about I would of said to someone a week back "Oh just wait for the Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD remix" so you can play Dream Drop Distance but the arseholes at Square haven't put it in You know the game they said was essential to understand Kingdom Hearts 3 story
Dammit. Why do they force these DS/PSP story arcs down my throat when all I EVER WANTED was the 3rd in the KH trilogy. Fu*k that, I'll just youtube the major plots and details.
Same here, only played KH1 and 2. Oh well, guess theres plenty of time to catch up!
do what i did and go to youtube, or i think it's on gametrailers as well are they go through the whole kingdom hearts story line. it brushes you up on the stuff you missed in the games you already played while giving you the story for the games you haven't.
Gametrailers.com has a 1 hour Video called the Kingdom Hearts Timeline that does a Glorious explanation of the Entire Plot of KH. It explains the history and origins starting with Birth By Sleep Final Mix to KH Final Mix, Chain of Memories. 358/2 Days which run congruent with with final arc of KH1 all the way to the opening chapters of KH2. And of course KH2:Final Mix and Dream Drop Distance which sets the stage for The Xehanort Conclusion in KH3. I really recommend watching it. http://m.youtube.com/watch?...
Make it happen 2014! Pleassssssse!
@Square-Enix, shut up and take my money.
This is gonna be amazing.
just awesome =D
The fighting looked really fun. The stuff at the end on that swing was making me dizzy.
Looks Like a Pixar movie O_O.
How do you get a pixar movie from this?
he means it looks that good graphically...so yea it does
This was like SE's proof. "Yes, this game really does exist!" X)
Wow, The graphics are more beautiful than I would've even imagined them being.
They look good but the initial trailer with Sora running on the wave of Heartless looked better. The textures were different. They looked almost too human though so maybe it was changed to get back to the cartoony look. That said the fire spell looked really good.
The initial trailer was a rendered movie, Nomura told us after a while since they didn't have any gameplay ready. He also told us the real time and that 'initial trailer' would be very similar
Oh I never read that, okay.
That's because the gameplay is using the Kingdom shader so that Sora and other Final Fantasy characters blend in with Disney characters more.
This looks like something the PS3 could pull off. But i'm not complaining. looks stunning. Take my money Nomura-san.
WOW! It looks amazing, and it's surely at pre-alpha stage. I can't wait to see how it's going to be!
Doesnt look next gen to me, i seriously hope they can improve this a lot.
Come on! This is just test gameplay. 99% of it won't look like that when the game comes out and most likely 99% of what is in the trailer will be in the game as shown. Did you follow Killzone 2? When it was announced at E3 it looked fantastic, by the time of release, it looked like 100x better!
Im just saying everything they showed could have been done on PS3. So i really hope this is just a tech demo and nothing else and that when the game is released it looks a 100 times better.
You mean the infamous killzone 2 trailer?!? idk if launch was better then that.
im sorry but that looks like a ps3 launch title. meaning its closer to looking like a ps2 game than a ps3 game
kingdom hearts was never graphical gem, not sure how great you can make cartoon/ cel shaded characters look. I dont care how "next-gen" the game looks im just freaking happy its finally in development
You can make cartoon cel shaded characters look as good as u want according to the power of the system they're developed on. They still use polygons and textures do they not?
@sugar game looked fine to me but w.e kingdom hearts to me was never about the graphics. Both kingdom hearts 1 and 2 werent the top of graphics at their time. As i said im just happy its finally in development not 100% what people were expecting its the same thing they showed when they unveiled it at e3 edit: graphic wise
KH has always had mindblowing graphics, even on gameboy. faces are so well defined, high texture detail and face expression. and it's next gen KH we're talking about so when i see this video i feel sceptical suddenly.
Yes, the characters present fairly basic geometrical shapes. So they have much more muscle the use for things like particle FX, post processing and fluid/hair/cloth simulation (or more physics in general). They haven't done any of that, the particle FX look current gen or even last gen, and so does everything else. Maybe they're rushing to get this game out the door to cash in, SE are in pretty dire straits financially.
exactly what i was thinking. i am playing KH 1,5 and it looks like this already. i'm expecting much more, just like the way KH1 blew my mind when it came out on PS2
just be grateful its actually out sheesh
@ LoneWolf some idiots can't appreciate things u know, to them, graphics is everything which is pathetic
@j-blaze: you treat us of idiots, alright! And to answer you politely (which is sth you don't know), when you buy a next gen console you expect the game to be at least visually impressive, especially a Kingdom Hearts.
j-blaze That's about as unfair as claiming that if were up to people like you, our games would still look like this: http://static.giantbomb.com...
That was the first impression I had as well. Then i pulled up the resolution and watched more carefully the lighting and the animation. I doubt it could be done like that in this gen.
They've release a 1080p version and it looks great! Can't wait for this game.
AGREED I was just saying this in the other screenshot thread it looks like a current gen game to me
It actually looks like a KH2 HD remake, aside from the really good looking fire spell. I'm guessing this was just to show gameplay though and it'll hopefully get better looking as development time goes on. The initial trailer looked way more "next gen", this looks current gen if not lower. I'm still excited about the game itself though, the game play is key and KH looks just as fun as the originals.
@majiebeast You sir need glasses. Those particle effects could not have been done on the PS3, the shaders could not have been done on the PS3 and the polygon count couldn't have been done on the PS3. I have two PS3's an original fatty from day one and the 1st slim. With over 200 AAA titles I can easily say the PS3 can't do KH3 unless it was down rez and missed a lot of graphical features that make the video really pop. Just saying my friend.
does it look next-gen? not really but i don't think the fact that it's coming on next gen has anything to do with not being able to be made on ps3. on the other hand those visuals where actually fantastic considering i didn't see any jaggies or things that should be curved have corners in them. it just looked smooth and like a cartoon. this is exactly how the game should look. it probably doesn't need to look any much better than that.
what the hell are your expectations?! they literally just started making the game this year this was just to show off how its gnna play it looks AMAZING right now and yea they will improve alot
On current gen it would look somewhat flatter, lighting wise, and geometry wise on surfaces. Jaggies would be more apparent. And the clean image wouldn't be quite as clean. But the game based on this footage could certainly run on current gen with some downgrades.
It feels unreal to finally see some KH3 footage after waiting so many years. :O Can't wait to play the game!
Very smooth and clean looking. I like it.
Kingdom Hearts on Xbox just feels............... wrong
FF on playstation was equally 'wrong'. Yet, it doesn't really matter in the end/ Game is a game
But why not release the HD remixes for Xbox then?
FF on PlayStation and Nintendo felt right but on Xbox well... we know how that turned out.
