In October of the same year, another news regarding the development of its graphics and gameplay was released.

New Features

Kingdom Hearts director Nomura explains that the action just got even crazier. Basically, it will provide a three-person party in which characters will be able to join and fight in the individual worlds. Consequently, it creates a very exciting and flashy action scene with the characters. Moreover, the enemy artificial intelligence has also been enhanced in which the gameplay will truly reflect the dynamic balance.

A new announcement was made about the franchise’s development using the Unreal Engine 4 from Epic Games. This has been made after opting out of the Luminous engine from Squares, which was supposedly the engine where it would run in. Nevertheless, the timeline for its completion will not be affected given these new updates.
