Three cloud titles will be released to coincide with Sora's Smash Bros.
Great fit for Switch! But these are the cloud version only.
Yeah that part sucks. Also I don't think these are the complete versions like PS4.
I can understand part 3, but, why the heck are part 1 and 2 also on cloud? They were PS2 games originally
"cloud version". How unbelievably disappointing.
The fact that every game before 3 is a Cloud version is lazy IMO. All of the HD remixes could be played on the PS3 of all systems, so it for sure can work on Switch. Hell, I'm pretty sure Kingdom Hearts 3 could be made to work natively since Unreal Engine 4 works well on Switch.
UE4 is scalable but the Switch can’t still run KH3.
I dunno. I feel like, if the switch can run DOOM + Eternal and the Witcher 3, it could run KH3 too. That's if they were willing to put in the substantial amount of work such a port would require.
I'm pretty damn sure it could run 3 if it can also run Doom Eternal, Dying Light and The Witcher 3, lol
I thought Sakurai said that only KH3 was going to be cloud streaming? Why are old ass PS2 fanes not native on the Switch?
I guess they are bassed on the updated PS4 releases.
Yeah, very weird that I'd be able to play a native version on the Steam Deck when I get mine in the coming months, but if I wanted to play them on my Switch it would require streaming them? Sure, Steam Deck will be more powerful. And while not all tflops are equal, at least the PC specs for KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX includes the R7 240 as an acceptable GPU. That released in 2013 with about 0.5 tflops of power. The Switch's Tegra X1 is in that same ballpark, but at least using somewhat newer architecture. Seems like they could make native versions, even with the more modest Switch hardware. Definitely a bizarre choice.
If they were physical or even digital I would buy them. But cloud is a no go for me. We ain't there yet lol maybe in the next decade cloud will be viable
Cloud is a no go for me, and I have very solid internet. The day cloud starts becoming the go to in the industry is the day I decide if I even want to game anymore. I'm an outdoorsman. Gaming isn't my only hobby, and if the industry keeps getting worse and worse, I don't exactly need it.
Eww cloud versions
with massive downgrades to graphics ofcourse
Took SquareEnix long enough to port the KH games to the Switch besides KH Melody of Memory.
They didn't even port the games though. This is running on the cloud for some dumb and lazy reason.
Cloud version only with the exception of 2.8 and 3 those games could easily run on the system. This seems lazy at best
Cloud gaming defeats the portability plus of the Switch. Unfortunate laziness from Square Enix.
Square can be very thick headed from time to time. This is like when fans asked for FF 1- 6 on consoles so naturally Square decided to go with mobile entries instead. It's not a good look for them.
I could possibly see the reasoning for Part 3, but there is zero reason why the Switch couldn't run actual versions of 1 + 2.
Cloud versions? Boooo.. they know damn well they can run natively on the Switch if Doom Eternal and Dying Light can. They're just being lazy.
