Kingdom Hearts 4 will apparently switch to Unreal Engine 5 for its development, although the first trailer was rendered in Unreal Engine 4.
This comes from a report by Japanese publication Famitsu on the Kingdom Hearts 20th Anniversary event. “The full game will be made with Unreal Engine 5, and the quality of the lighting and details will be several notches higher,” said Famitsu (translations by VGC). Kingdom Hearts 4 is already looking incredibly good, so Unreal Engine 5 will likely take that to extreme levels.
A number of other tidbits of information also emerged from the event. For example, you might notice that the logo for Kingdom Hearts 4 is a little less extravagant, particularly as the series enters a new storyline, The Lost Master Arc. Additionally, director Tetsuya Nomura wasn’t sure whether he wanted to call the game Verum Rex, which fans who played Kingdom Hearts 3 would understand, or Kingdom Hearts 4. Ultimately, he decided on the latter Verum Rex, obviously due to concerns about Verum Rex connecting not with Sora (thanks, KH13).
Some more details have also been provided on the new mobile game, Kingdom Hearts: Missing Link. For one, it will have action elements that bring it closer to the main game series. Up to six players can also play together online. And interestingly, there will be a Pokemon Go-like mode to level up your Keyblade, although there will be ways to do it without having to walk around in real life.
Of course, this isn’t the first game to be confirmed for Unreal Engine 5. For one, a new one Tomb Raider Game is in development by crystal dynamicsthat are developed with the new engine. And the next witcher The game is also being developed using Unreal Engine 5, although it would be a bit of a shame if CD project In-house engine REDengine has been brought to a standstill.
