Which game looks better?

Zelda: Windwaker HD 60 34.09%
 
Kingdom Hearts III 116 65.91%
 
Total:176

I think many people here just vote for Kh3 because its on a much more powerfull system.
I never said WW would be more demanding, i just said that for me (personally) it does look a bit better. Both game look very similar though in terms of textures and lighting and used colours. Only difference i can see are abit darker colours in KH3 (what i dont like that much) and much more particle effects in Kh3 (which dont make the game "better looking" for me).
I doubt many people even watched the videos who said "kh3 looks lightyears ahead" but okay.

The only thing kh3 and windwaker have in common is a cartoony aesthetic at the heart of their design but their art direction is completely different. As far as which looks better, windwaker is one of the best examples of cell-shaded graphics ever, but I have always despised the character design in that game, kingdom hearts sort of wins by default for me just by not being windwaker in that regard.



Is this really being asked? KH3 completely shits on WWHD despite it being a pretty good looking game.



*smh* just look a the grass (instancing), all the particle effects, the textures and the scope if the world. There's a big difference and I don't see how Wind Waker does anything better.



I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine

KH3 is just more impressive all around, and this is the game as it is with a release date of "in development", meaning we may have even been looking at what was basically alpha gameplay on maybe slightly more prettied up early beta graphics. KH3 is going to look even better as we get closer and closer to the final product.

Thats not the sort of thing we want on a site dedicated to comparing games


I will make a starfox wiiU starcitizen graphics comparizon next.


For a space game starfox looks much better and graphically more demanding.

They are two different artsyles.

But obviously KH3 looks better.....it's the less cartoony one. WW HD's faces look like a kids show but the environment still looks nice.



Wind Waker is just a remaster of a thirteen year old game. It would be pretty sad if it would be better than future 8th game Kingdom Hearts.

You may like the esthetics of Wind Waker better, but technically it's no contest of course. That I'd say WiiU wouldn't have much problem with this game if some effort was put in a port.



Similarly pretty bloom and similar simple textures.

Kingdom Hearts Particle effects and geometry in certain places are beyond anything we've seen on Wii U let alone Windwaker. Compare 0:47 to the low poly geometry we saw in the December Zelda demo. The game as they built it wouldn't run on the Wii U, it would be one of the more plausable ports but gotta remember its running on UE4 which doesn't natively support Wii U

It'd be a lot of unecessary work considering 90% of Kingdom hearts fans intend on getting a PS4 in future of other RPGs (persona, FFXV, Type 0, FFVII, Tales of.... Other adventure games like Rime, The last Guardian,No Mans Land, Horizon). Maybe if NX comes out before KH3 would could see it happen as a joint effort between Nintendo and Square.

Well, more like 7.1 or 7.2 at most.
