Why Kingdom Hearts must return to consoles


It's time for Kingdom Hearts to go back to home consoles. Square Enix have scrunched four of these games onto tiny handheld screens now – five if you want to count the oddball Chain of Memories. That's five games worth of parsing the shadows of Traverse Town in the glare of the sun while riding the bus. Five games worth of Kingdom Hearts' nausea-inducing camera on those tiny screens. (Culture, Dragon Quest IX, Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days, PS3, Square Enix, Wii, Xbox 360)

Agreed. I'm not sure why the communication is SO BAD between the developers and their audience. It's like they just don't get it...

Games that actually matter?
None, because by the time one that does finally releases, I pray to God the fans that are still left would have finally given up by then.

Square Enix is a joke now.

i'm NOT ok with kh3 coming out on ps4.

and if they're going to remake 1 and 2, then 3 is coming out for ps3, simple as that.

They should package KH1/2, Re Chain of Memories, 358/2 Days, Re: Coded, Birth By Sleep, and DDD into one huge HD collection for the PS3 all leading up to a secret trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3.

SE's made such a mess with all those portable games lol
crxss  +   1285d ago
the last kh game i played was kh2. since then i've been so lost when it comes to the stories in all the portable versions that i think kh3 will be a mess if it tries to incorporate them all, the kh universe already is practically. i think they should just focus on 1, 2, and bbs in the kh3 storyline.

sorry but KH3 has to end on the ps3(or ps4). it started on ps consoles, it should end on ps consoles.

I've always loved how good KH games are, despite being inspired by Disney. I played KH1&2 twice many,many,many years ago, and kinda strayed away from the handheld versions only trying them out. But as of yesterday I'm kinda interested in getting the handheld versions, (mainly the PSP version), because I bought KH: 3D Dream Drop and I swear that it's just as good than the console versions, (In my opinion). The complexity of the game and story is so fresh... I love how your able to switch between Sora&Riku on the fly and be in two completely different scenarios yet same worlds. Its almost like your playing two different versions of the same game.

I still would rather play on my PS3 or 360, but would also welcome if they continued the franchise on the Wii U, I just hope they don't wait till PS4 or 720.
