Or 3) They're not aiming for it to look as great as Final Fantasy XV does?
While I do agree that I'd love to see Aqua the way she looks on those sexy CGI-pics ingame as well, I still gotta admit that I also like the way she looks in 2.8 as of now. Not because Nomura throws it at me and I accept it. I LIKE it.
Calling that "trash" and badmouthing such an opinion isn't objective in any kind of way.
Who's talking about Final Fantasy XV? That's a game that's going for a realistic look, which Kingdom Hearts obviously isn't and never should be going for.
Why Lnds brought up Final Fantasy XV in the first place is to show that they succeeded in getting the in-game visuals look like the CGI visuals, which in theory should be harder to do than getting the Kingdom Hearts CGI look.
I think a lot of you are misunderstanding our issues with the current visuals: wanting better visuals =/= realism.
Again, there are fundamental issues with the visuals that would make the look of the game loads better. Certain elements are lacking. And other developers succeed in getting that look right. Why is Square-Enix, out of all developers, seemingly having trouble with it?
They can (and probably want) than this.
