Once upon a time, purchasing and playing a video game was pretty straightforward. You purchased the disc or cart, removed it from the console, and hit play. Not so much anymore. Finally, the not-so-great cloud-streaming-only versions of Kingdom Hearts released earlier this year have recently received an update, and now include a warning warning letting you know if it''s not a good time to play the original single-player games you already purchased. It''s sucks.
The first update 1.03 for all of the Kingdom Heart games on Switch appears to include two features. In Kingdom Hearts 3, players can now choose between two performance options: Prioritize Performance and Prioritize Graphics Quality. These settings are available before you begin playing, allowing the game to either focus on a more stable framerate or higher resolution visuals, which many games offer this day.
The Switchs'' most popular, cloud-streamed Kingdom Hearts games have been warned of any server shortages that the titles may encounter. It''s possible that playing a game you want to play will not be a great experience.
While it''s nice to know before playing if a game will work properly, it''s also terrible that this should be added in the first place; I believe what Xbox is doing with its cloud streaming and Game Pass is fantastic, allowing you to play fancy games like Gears 5 on a phone. However, while Microsoft also allows you to install all of its games, so if the servers are slow or you don''t want to worry about lag, you can just play a native version of the game on your local machine

The problem is that unlike with Microsofts Game Pass streaming, Square Enix is only selling cloud-streamed versions of the Kingdom Hearts games on Switch. There is no way, currently, to download and install them on your actual console. It appears like a bad deal, right now, Square Enix may just tell you to not even play the games you already purchased? That''s exactly what happened in 2022, aint it?
Square Enix is planning a way to sift NFTs and blockchain technology into future cloud releases, as well as making this whole experience even worse. In the meantime, you should only purchase Kingdom Hearts games on PS4 or Xbox if you want to play whenever you feel like at a consistent quality level without having to worry about the servers being congested.
