Kingdom Hearts 3 dev discusses switch from Luminous to Unreal Engine 4

Square Enix ditched its in-house engine Luminous for Epic's Unreal Engine 4 part-way through the development of crossover action role-playing game Kingdom Hearts 3 - a move you'd expect to throw more than a few spanners in the works.

So Disney said they can use any character they want and they have tons of awesome characters. Imagine the possibilities. They should have made the game release at the same time Star Wars is being released. That would help the sales alot especially if Han Solo and the crew are in the game.

I'm scared that they are going to force FROZEN onto them

Frozen would work pretty well, even if you are not a fan of it the movie could easily be added to KH.

I personally liked going to the worlds of the best Disney films I watched as a kid, so Frozen really would not do much for me because I have literally no attachment to the movie. KH is old and they need to probably appeal to younger people, I understand it I just wish they would finish the Xehanort saga first at least before throwing in newer Disney movies. If Disney did not try and force it Square very well might, because KH is probably becoming more and more niche as the years pass.

Unfortunately they may...Money talks....

They've already used TRON characters so nothing can bottom expectations anymore that that. Except maybe Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar since Disney owns them

LAWSON721445d ago

I hope they keep Marvel and Star Wars far away from KH.

I agree, it would ruin the Disney Charm the previous games brought!

DarkOcelet1445d ago

But imagine fight Vader with a strength like Sephiroth. That would be amazing.

But I want my lightsaber-keyblade!

NiteX1445d ago

I probably won't play it unless some SW or Marvel is in it.

LAWSON721445d ago


Okay, don't play it then. If this turns into a game not for original fans I won't play it. Star Wars and Marvel have no place in Kingdom Hearts.

Just got interested in this series reading today about kh2, never appealed to me when I was younger...but now I have kids and all these disney characters have part of my life I wanna see some of them get in a fight and mature a bit!

Bought a used copy of kh 1.5 to play tonight on ps3. Might have an adult beverage with it...

Can't wait for KH3 to come out, birth by sleep was a great game that I really enjoyed, glad they are bringing it to consoles as it will get more sales that way.

Heavenly King1445d ago

Vader vs. Sephiroth is a MUST!!

GetSomeLoGiK1445d ago

So what new worlds do you guys wanna see in KH3? I really want to see Alantis and Treasure Planet
