Final Fantasy XV And Kingdom Hearts 3 Still in development on DirectX 11

Final Fantasy XV fans are going to be disappointed that Square Enix has confirmed that the game is still in development, they did however announce that Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 are being developed on DirectX 11. While fans may be disappointed in the news, at least we know that they are polishing the game to look visually stunning with DirectX is the graphics technology powering today’s most impressive games. The latest version, DirectX 11, enables the addition of advanced effects and features in NVIDIA-enhanced titles, ranging from tessellation and HBAO+, to Percentage Closer Soft Shadows and NVIDA HairWorks. When asked if a PC version was possibly on the way for the two games, Square Enix had nothing to say about it.

This in no way means it going to be on PC though, we've known for a while now its being developed on DirectX, if I remember it was stated that its not coming to the Wii U because so.

mohuzas822d ago

Well not exactly, both PS4 and WiiU use OpenGL rather than DirectX, which is a Microsoft exclusive API, SE never gave a reason why KH3 wasn't coming to WiiU.

darkstar18822d ago

A Wii U version is definitely possible.

elninels822d ago

Its not on wii u because of the lack of install base. The same reason it won't be released for a good while. They definitely have a magic number in mind.

lol @sungin.
keep dreamin bro.
jap console gaming market is shambles,and the last thing in the world that they care about is PC.
most of them are now getting a hang of PS3.
remember the last successful JRPG on the PC?,
the only one it got was last remnant ,last gen and it sold like 10k copies on PC.
@kingdom18
true,and anyone who truely expected it to make it to wii u is an idiot
1)nintendo never got a mainline KH.
2)wii never got any KH game,neither did GC
3)i know,XB1 right?similar in power to the ps4!
wii u would get considerably scaled down version,fans would rage and no will buy it because devs didnt put extra effort in a failing console

This makes no sense!

"Final Fantasy XV fans are going to be disappointed that Square Enix has confirmed that the game is still in development"

How is this a disappointment?
If the game wasn't still in development then it would either be released already or cancelled(now that would be disappointing).

mikeslemonade822d ago

These games should only be on PS4 so I can brag about it and so the game can be optimized and polished. However SE will find a way to money hat and ruin the games.

Volkama822d ago

@Shinmaster indeed. The whole article is drivel though, not just because of that strange phrasing.

Someone heard a term they know (DirectX 11) and tried to join all kind of dots to make an article. They weren't real dots though. That NVidia Hairworks stuff was probably a biscuit crum the metaphorical dot to dot picture.

PC versions would be nice, but get outta here with that Nvidia nut-hugging.

(@sungi sorry can't reply to myself for some reason)

@mohuzas I don't know, I just recall reading an interview with a dev saying that (could be wrong of course), having trouble navagating KH13.com and can't find the story mentioning the Wii U.

KingKelloggTheWH822d ago

Final Fantasy XV is not confirmed, but http://www.takuchat.com/the...

Yeah... So there is hope.

Magicite822d ago

I would be happy if it comes to PC, would be save me buying PS4 for a while.

why would fans be dissapointed? i guess i dont understand tech, but it sounds like its going to be amazing graphically.

belac09822d ago

i read the first part wrong nevermind.

kingdom18822d ago

I still don't get it myself. Is it because its going to take longer? Because with DirectX they can do more with the graphics?

iamtehpwn822d ago

Bringing FF15 to PC would definitely be a smart move, even if it launches as a Timed Console exclusive to Off-set Piracy. You guys have seen what they've done of mods fF7 and graphics mods of Skyrim. Imagine if those kind of mods could come to FF15.

masterfox822d ago

can't wait for 2020 to get this game. :D

Qrphe822d ago

This in no way means PC port, so rev up those petitions
