As many people know Kingdom Hearts III is expected to be released sometime in 2018.  At one point Kingdom Hearts III was supposed to utilize the Luminous game engine before it was eventually changed.  While some might argue that the Luminous engine is more superior in terms of quality many people including the developers feel that the Unreal Engine will be more effective in the long run.

As far as the Luminous game  engine is concerned people who are fans of the role playing genre can always check out Final Fantasy XV.

The debate on which game engine is better in terms of quality between Luminous and Unreal 4 really various among different people.  While many people are impressed by the Unreal Engine 4 there are some who believe that Luminous looked more polished when it came down to graphics.  In fact Final Fantasy XV utilizes the Luminous game engine and because of it some would argue that the animation was better than that of the Unreal Engine 4.  When it comes down to physics and realistic graphics there are some who are inclined to argue in favor of the Luminous game engine while others might say the the Unreal Engine seems more smooth and colorful.

The idea of having a title like Final Fantasy XV with another game engine such as Unreal is very interesting.  In fact, at one point Final Fantasy XV Hajime Tabata had mentioned that consoles such as the Nintendo Switch could not fully handle the Luminous game engine which might be one of the main reasons why Final Fantasy XV has not been ported for the Nintendo Switch at all.   If Square Enix had decided to use the Unreal Engine for a potential Final Fantasy XV release for the Nintendo Switch the game itself would probably feel different to many people.  In terms of which game engine is better is something many people in the gaming world generally talk about quite often.

Should Gran Turismo Sport have also been released for the PS3?

Gran Turismo Sport

As many of us know Gran Turismo Sport was released not too long ago exclusively for the PlayStation 4 back in October 2017.  Even though, there are many fans of the racing genre who are thrilled about the fact that Gran Turismo Sport is one the PS4 not everyone has a chance to actually enjoy the game itself.  If you are someone who still owns the PlayStation 3 then unfortunately Gran Turismo Sport is a game that you will be unable to play.  While it might seem unfair to some people others might justify Polyphony Digital’s decision to make it a PlayStation 4 exclusive.  When we look back at other games in the series such as Gran Turismo 5 & 6 they were available exclusively for the PlayStation 3.

If Gran Turismo titles were developed for both current and last generation game consoles in some ways it would detract from the overall value of the game itself.  For those who are fans of the Gran Turismo series games like Gran Turismo 5 & 6 was the main reason why owning a PS3 was more desirable during early 10’s.  As of right now if you are a die hard fan of the Gran Turismo series and love the latest game that Polyphony Digital has made that would be one of the main reasons why having a PlayStation 4 is even more desirable .

Could Grand Theft Auto Vice City have worked on GameCube in the early 00’s?

When it comes down to action adventure third person shooter games Grand Theft Auto Vice City was arguably one of the most popular titles within that genre for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox.  For the PlayStation 2 Grand Theft Auto Vice City had reportedly sold over 16 million units worldwide for that console alone.  However, the fact that Grand Theft Auto Vice City was very popular for the PS2 is understandable considering the fact that it was arguably the best game console of the 00’s decade.  If the game was released on the Nintendo GameCube back in the early 00’s it could have easily been one of the best selling games for that console.

When it comes down to quality and graphics the Nintendo GameCube was pretty solid but some might argue that it was not on the same level as the PS2 or Xbox.   Also, there were in the past that Grand Theft Auto was supposed to be released for the Nintendo GameCube but ended up being cancelled for whatever reason.  If Grand Theft Auto was released on the Nintendo GameCube back in 2002 it still could have done great in sales considering the fact that it would have been the first game in the series to be featured on that console.

Should Tekken Tag Tournament 2 be re-released for current generation consoles?

If there is any fighting  game from the early 10”s that deserved to be re-released or remastered anyway it’s Tekken Tag Tournament 2.  When Tekken Tag Tournament 2 was first released back in 2012 it was considered to be the best fighting game of the year in the eyes of many people.  Also, the sales for the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 were pretty decent for both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 following its release.

Tekken-tag-tournament-2-wiiSeeing Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on the PS4, Xbox One or even the Nintendo Switch would be pretty cool in theory.  However, there is always a possibility that a remastered version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 would be overshadowed by games such as Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite or even Tekken 7.

Should Patroklos and Pyrrha be included in Soul Calibur 6?

Soul Calibur V (4)

When it comes down to Soul Calibur V the game had mainly revolved around the main characters Patroklos and Pyrrha Alexander.  While Soul Calibur VI is expected to revisit the events revolving around the original Soul Calibur game some might question whether or not Patroklos and Pyrrha should appear in the game altogether.  If Project Soul wants briefly to explain the events of Soul Calibur V for those who never played the game then having Patroklos and Pyrrha Alexander would make sense to some degree.  However, if Soul Calibur VI focuses only on the events from the very first Soul Calibur game then there may not be much of a reason to have Patroklos or Pyrrha as playable characters.

Soulcalibur-VI (2)

After what happened in Soul Calibur V some could argue that it might have been the first and possibly the last game that Patroklos and Pyrrha Alexander may appear in as playable characters considering the fact they supposedly destroyed both the Soul Edge and the Soul Calibur swords. However, if both characters were mentioned or even made some type of appearance in Soul Calibur VI for storyline purposes then it would definitely make the game itself more interesting overall.

Could Soul Calibur V have worked on the Nintendo Wii?

Soul Calibur 5‘When we look back at fighting titles from the early 10’s there were some pretty cool titles for consoles such as PS3 and the Xbox 360 such as Soul Calibur V  If Project Soul had made the decision to port Soul Calibur V to the Nintendo Wii back in 2012 it would have been kinda tough to predict how well the game would have done in sales.  After all, we haven’t really seen a major Soul Calibur game on any home based Nintendo consoles since Soul Calibur II which was released for the Nintendo GameCube back in 2003.   The cool thing about the Nintendo GameCube version  of Soul Calibur II was the fact that Link from the Legend of Zelda was an exclusive character in that game.

If Soul Calibur V was ported for the Nintendo Wii back in 2012 then having Link return as an exclusive character could have definitely worked.   However, trying to fit Link into the story mode of Soul Calibur V could have ended up being an issue.  Also, it seemed like Project Soul were trying to build the game mainly around Pyrrha and Patroklos in relation to the story mode of Soul Calibur V.    While its possible that a Wii version of Soul Calibur V could have definitely worked in theory there are many who believe that the game may not have done as well in terms of sales in comparison to the PS3 or the Xbox 360 versions of the game.
