So… one of the protagonists in 13 Sentinels is actually just straight up gay? Or bisexual, at the very least? This is very based, especially for a Japanese game.

If you mean a gay female, then good for the diversity! If a gay guy, my interest has grown in the game.

-But I'll assume you're just misreading things that shall be clarified in time. I'll doubt, as I probably should out of an abundance of very reasonable caution.

I expected 0.2 and III to run like shit, as the graphics are way above what ninty can ever reach, along with the engine at the same time.

But c'mon? They cant run KH I or II? What a joke. Ninty doesnt know quality lmao.

And the Switch is 1000% capable of running everything before KH3 just fine. Square doing cloud versions is cringe.

But its on Nintys console, the responsibility to be able to run a freakin PS2 game is kinda theirs. But as it stands, apparently they are way too complex for them, haha. 

That was 20 years ago KH 1 came out, its not that hard.

Because it's not the original PS2 version.

The game assets are long lost. For the PS3 HD bundles they actually had to recreate them all from scratch.

Quote

"Kingdom Hearts 1 was created a long, long time ago, so actually the original data was missing already," he explained. "It was lost, so we had to research, and we had to dig out from the actual game what was available and recreate everything for HD. We had to recreate all the graphics and it was actually not that easy."

Usually first route is usually a lore dump route or something similiar, and there's a popular term called ''first route syndrome'' to describe that, and the games getting stronger with more routes until peaking at last route. It's not rare to have dud routes tho

This is probably the first time i like first route more than 2nd or 3rd.

Well, 3 routes more to go after this

Oh yeah i did hear about this.

Even then though, it's still clear that the ports are just poorly made. Just compare it to actually good Switch ports from any generation. Like the Switch port of DMC3 or DQ11.

Switch does not have the specs to run KH III at 60 fps. Not wothout killing the visual quality.

I understand that. But this is not about KH3, because that's the only one where the cloud version is """justifiable""".

I'm talking about everything else. The Switch is an underpowered console but acting like it can't run KH1 or 2 or whatever because of specs is blowing it out of proportion. The Switch can absolutely run those games if the ports were made properly,  which they weren't.

Yep. Looking on Wikipedia, Muramasa's draft proposal was finished at the end of 2006, before Odin Sphere launched on May 16th, 2007.

It's because Atlus wasn't willing to give the OK for another game when Odin Sphere hadn't been dropped into the marketplace and determined a failure or success, that Marvelous (and Ignition Entertainment in the US, Rising Star Games in EU) published Muramasa instead. Meaning a rerelease of 13 Sentinels on Switch might be good omens for potential Odin Sphere or Dragon's Crown ports, but says nothing about whether Muramasa could be ported.

Also, the technical specs of the PS2 and Wii being similar explains why Muramasa got on the Wii. (Which reminds me how Sakura Wars 5 was on Wii and PS2.) It let them carry over their development experience from OS.

According to a website interview I can't presently get the archived version of to load. Odin Sphere had bathing scenes that got cut (why'd Leifthrasir not add them?), and thus the idea carried over into Muramasa. Kamitani wasn't going to sacrifice his wet fantasy a second time.

Even so, it shouldn't be a problem for Switch. To quote one Witcher 3 Switch port review.:

Spoiler

Speaking of jank, The Witcher 3 launched with performance issues on consoles back in 2015, and while they were fixed bit by bit, it's always been clear that this is a technically demanding game. It's by some miracle, then, that The Witcher 3 runs as well as it does on Switch. The visuals have obviously taken a substantial hit -- more on that in a minute -- but again, this is the full, uncut experience running on significantly weaker hardware.

Let's start with the frame rate. Capped at 30 frames per second both in handheld and docked modes, the release is surprisingly smooth. Galloping at speed through the open world, we only noticed very minor drops. It's honestly hard to fault performance during regular gameplay -- transitioning between exploration, combat, and conversation is pretty much flawless, and the title's few load screens are quite short. Having said all that, there are times when the frame rate briefly falls off a cliff. This usually happens during especially busy cutscenes, or when you're taking in the sights of a detailed location, like the bustling city of Novigrad. It's rough, but perhaps expected.

Slightly inconsistent frame rate aside, sacrifices have, of course, been made to achieve this level of performance. There's a distinct blurriness to The Witcher 3 on Switch, and although it doesn't stop the game's top notch art direction from shining through, it does take the edge off certain environments, and it can even be difficult to pick out distant enemies or read an opponent's actions in battle. This is less noticeable when playing docked, but the trade-off is that on a bigger display, muddy textures and asset pop-in stand out a lot more. There are a wealth of settings to tweak before starting Witcher 3 and it'll depend on personal preference if you think Motion Blur settings and the like improve the visual experience or not.

But make no mistake, this is still a lovely looking RPG when it wants to be. The world oozes atmosphere with dynamic weather effects. Trees sway in the wind, storms light up the sky, and stunning sunsets will have you mashing your Switch's capture button. And adding to all of this is a superb soundtrack, stuffed with incredible ambient music and a selection of intense battle themes.

Porting an HD versions of the old KH games, regardless of whether their code is old or made of freshly caught & chopped sashimi, should present no real technical problems for the Switch. It's a matter of developer effort. And Square doesn't truly care about Nintendo.

0.2 runs the same engine as III, though...

Till they can prove to me otherwise, i'm gonna have to day its kinda a waste of money over the PS4 version. Which runs 60 fps and actually plays.

On the flip side, Switch is the only one where digital gaming is feasible. All other platforms make their games too heavy. Like the only digital games i have on my PS4 are small ones like 13 Sentinels, the Gravity Rush duology, Castlevania Requiem.

Correct. The cloud versions are just Square being lazy and even if KH3 is the only time it's justifiable, if you need a cloud version to run a game, then maybe it shouldn't be on that platform to begin with.

Honestly,  i think i can see what happened. Sora got into Smash and Square saw an opportunity to make a quick buck without actually putting in the effort. The result? Cloud versions of old games with timed demos that don't actually let you even try the game.
