Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy 15 both use DirectX 11 features, the Wii U doesn’t support that, so it seems the games might not come to Wii U as a result of that.
Tetsuya Nomura discussed KH3 coming to Wii U a little bit. He said the game uses DirectX 11, so they can only bring the title to the appropriate hardware. Right now, it’s not 100% clear if the Wii U has DirectX 11 equivalent or not. Some people say the Wii U uses DirectX 10.1.
Either way, it’s upsetting that the game might not come to Wii U over a few extra graphical details, when there is a clear fanbase who will purchase the game. Kingdom Hearts games have always performed well on Nintendo handhelds, Square Enix was just too stupid to release a Kingdom Hearts game for Wii, and it seems like their going to support the Xbox One over the Wii U because of graphics.
It seems like Nomura is being lazy when it comes to Kingdom Hearts 3, as the Wii U is more than strong enough to handle the game. Oh well, good luck selling the game on the $499.99 Xbox One Square Enix. I have a feeling if the Xbox One sales stagnate, and the Wii U sales rise, Nomura and Square will change their minds about a Wii U version.Check out the Furious EA – The Worst Shin Megami Tensei X Francis’ Youtube!
