Kingdom Hearts III Highly Unlikely To Appear On Wii U
Posted by Tim Latshaw
DirectX 11 seems to be the key
The teaser for Kingdom Hearts III shown at this year’s E3 sent a tingle down many fans’ keyblades. The title was confirmed for both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, but unfortunately appears to be another bust for the Wii U.
Director Tetsuya Nomura was asked at Square Enix’s recent Future of Final Fantasy E3 event whether a Wii U version of Kingdom Hearts III was a possibility. Nomura replied that the title is being developed through DirectX 11 and that it can only be brought to "appropriate" hardware.
The Wii U’s supposed weakness in supporting DirectX 11 has been cited as a concern for third parties when discussing bringing their projects to the system, but the true extent to which this may be a problem is difficult to pinpoint.
Do you worry the Wii U isn’t going to have enough juice this generation, or do you think it still has much potential to be found? Let us know in the comments.
