Fresh Kingdom Hearts III Details
Kingdom Hearts III is one of the most anticipated games of the new generation. We're finally getting it! Yay!
And now we've got a few more details, courtesy of producer Tetsuya Nomura and Polygon. Firstly, regarding the slightly overhauled visual style:
"Should we go for a more realistic look like in recent projects, or try something else? Along the way, we remembered that these Kingdom Hearts characters were originally paintbrush art from Disney productions, a texture that was one of our original aims, and that it was time to return to that. So [chief creative director Takeshi] Nozue went through a series of tests, and the results are the visuals that we refer to in the team as the Kingdom Shader. It may look like a pretty drastic change, but I see it as a rich evolution of everything we've shown you up to now."
More importantly, Nomura talked about the gameplay and combat. "The action's pretty frantic," he said. He also confirmed the return of three-person parties, with the addition of NPCs and other characters joining the fight in each individual world. The enemy AI is "more intricate" as well and we should be seeing an overall "new dynamic balance." Fans have been pining for a true Kingdom Hearts sequel for an entire generation, so the result had better be pretty darn special.
If it isn't, there's gonna be some really disappointed gamers out there.
