I just realized how strange, but amazing it's going to be to see all the Disney characters from the various worlds in the beautiful new CGI style they're doing for all the cutscenes in KH3. It's going to be especially interesting to see the 2D animated characters in this great CGI style. Do you think the 3D animated characters are going to look better or worse then they do in their corresponding movies? For example, will Rapunzel looker better or worse? Do you think they're going to make them look exactly the same as they do in their corresponding movies? Do you think they might look slightly more "anime"? I'm talking about the more human characters obviously since we already know that animal type characters like Donald and Goofy look just fine in Kingdom Hearts CGI. Judging by the Young Xehanort/Young Eraqus cutscene, the KH3 cutscenes look absolutely fantastic, but not quite as fantastic as Disney 3D animated movies. That's completely understandable though since cutscenes for a game end up being triple, if not quadruple, the length of a movie. So yeah, what are your thoughts and opinions on this?
Did you know that KINGDOM HEARTS III did not switch engines because they were not able to get what they wanted with the Luminous Engine? Of course it is part of the reason since Nomura said so in an interview, but Square Enix actually did not want to let the Luminous Engine be used for any games besides FINAL FANTASY XV. According to the french website Final Fantasy World, Julien Merceron, a french technology director who helped with the development of the Luminous Engine, had to apply one of his rules before any other game was made with the technology Luminous provided. The rule states that a first game has to be completed with a certain technology before it can be used for other games. "The first game acts as a test" according to the Final Fantasy World article. Because of that, the Luminous Engine stayed exclusive to FINAL FANTASY XV and thus, games like KINGDOM HEARTS III or FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE moved to the Unreal Engine to pursue their development. Once FINAL FANTASY XV is released,in 2016, more games could be developped with the Luminous engine. Here's the Final Fantasy World article (if you read french) http://www.ffworld.com/?rub=news&page=voir&id=3180
