The Japanese branch of Microsoft Studios opened up a page for the Xbox One version of the upcoming multiplatform video game, “Kingdom Hearts 3.”
I think we're still a good 3+ years away from seeing this game.
That seems a bit excessive,no? Lol, maybe I'm, just delusional but I feel like this game could come at Q3-Q4 2016.
"I think we're still a good 3+ years away from seeing this game." In the meantime enjoy the 2 min gameplay trailer :-) http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Probably 3+ years is right. Plenty of time to replay the old ones!
Love the hearts games but they have one of the most convoluted plots ever conceived still can't wait for this game though I've waited long enough for a proper sequel to end the dark seeker saga.
They kind of toned it down a little in Dream Drop Distance I think. It was a lot less confusing than KHII or 358/2 Days were.
Never played any of them, but compared to the MGS series, how convoluted is the plot?
I dont care if xv goes multiplat but kindom of hearts should of stayed on sonys platform just shows how crap square enix are
sony cant afford to keep it exclusive cause there poor
Really why can't Microsoft make it an exclusive if it has to do with who is rich or poor? Please stop the crap please.Even if both companies had tons of money Square Enix would still make it multi because that means more money for them the n if they just gave it to Microsoft.I mean do the people on N4G ever grow up or make sense at all?
It won't really matter as long as one version isn't downgraded to be like the other, which is unlikely to happen (they sure didn't with FFXIII...the ps3 version was a minor downgrade from the demo, but it was WAY better than the 360 version). There is really no reason for them NOT to make the game for both systems, since this generation it is very easy to just make the game on a PC and convert it to the PS4 and XONE, changing what settings (resolution, AA, etc.) need to be changed. It's not like last generation where both systems required nearly complete different code. About the only way non-1st party games are going to be exclusive this generation is if they are paid to be exclusive, or they are funded by their respective console (or maybe smaller indie games, who don't have the resources to easily port between consoles).
At the very most, I think the Xbox One version may have the usual lower resolution. I don't think there will be any drastic differences between the two since their architecture is similar.
MS should have tried to make this exclusive... I would never buy this for X1. This is a PS game and should have been exclusive for PS!
If MS made this Exclusive then it won't sell that good since the majority of Kingdom Hearts fans are with PlayStation.
Dude I know where your coming from, but the way I see it, is just buy it for the console you own. Its kinda like Metal Gear, its on Xbox but you know its gonna be better on PS. The bit of KH I have played has been on Nintendo, mainly DS. I think all gamers should get to play this series tho. Its also allows Square a bigger install base as opposed to keeping on one system. Although if you went PS4 exclusive the install base is good enough to do it and still have success especially with JRPG/RPG games.
Thats crazy logic. SO is mass effect better on xbox since it started there are many other games? If ms really wanted to make this exclusive they could have they have the money but thats not ms plan. I believe they just want the title on there machine not to upset sony fans but for visability purpose. Its not even about how it sells to them. My favorite games of last gen were lost odessey by Mistwalker which should be surprising xbox fans soon as they refuse to work with sony and alan wake and its been said ms is absorbing Remedy into ms game studios which only makes since. Alot of games start as new ips on one system as exclusive and move on to both depending on who the publisher is. Didnt the ps3 finally get mass effect 1 a ms published title and I believe ms let that happen so more people could enjoy it as the game was getting old and had made its due on the 360. My point is games will be on both platforms this gen and I expect as devs learn to use the one better the parity in resolution will be there as well. We are allready seeing future releases on the one as soon as wolfenstien at full 1080p and as much as fanboys hate it its a thing of the past. Cant wait to enjoy KH on my system of choice.
If Microsoft made it exclusive then people would just get upset and outraged. Look no further than how people treated Nintendo with Bayonetta 2. That HAD to be exclusive or the sequel would never exist and people crapped all over Nintendo (and oddly not Sega) anyway..
I concur but the X1 fans will be happy just because they were able to steal a PS game. They still be in X1 camp. The PS fans they don't care about would rage in anger. Me too. But at the end after a long wait I probably will get it anyway and the console if it gets much cheaper, too. Because at the end it is all about the games and not the console. At least for me.
Why are you guys arguing over what platform it's on, did you guys read the article?! I think it just confirmed that Sora is going to be older in the third one compared to the second one.
he has gotten older between each game so it was kind of a given
Everybody should have the chance to enjoy this game. If someone wants to play this game on the Xbox One, let them. If they want to play it on the PS4, then let them. The only people who have the right to complain are Wii U owners who won't have the chance to play this (unless they purchase a PS4 or an Xbox One, of course.) On topic, I wonder how many years have passed since Dream Drop Distance?
If Sora looks the way he did in the original KHIII trailer, probably not very many years at all. He doesn't seem that much older, which is fine by me. I'd be sad if I played a new KH and Sora looked and acted totally different.
I'll never understand people complaining about multi-console releases. The more people that have the opportunity to enjoy a great game, the better. As long as it doesn't compromise the quality of the title, why would anyone care? Now that being said..I've never understood the appeal of this title. Maybe I was just too damn old when I went to play it but I bought 2, but about 12 hours into it before finally having to admit to myself that everything about the game was just boring me to tears. The story, the look, the combat...sure it was cute and had disney characters but what the hell is it about these games that make people act like they're classic? Lock on target, mash a button. And even when KHII came out, reviewers weren't exactly enthralled by it either. It had good reviews, but what about this series makes people so excited for another entry? I just don't understand. Not trolling or anything. There will always be games that people love that others simply don't understand. I loved GTA4 and Skyrim. Some find they're over-rated and don't get the appeal. I've, frankly, never understood how anyone can play more than 10 minutes of Perfect Dark, Dead Rising or Street Fighter. Kingdom hearts is just one of those games for me that just didn't click, despite my general fondness for JRPG's back in the day. It makes me smile that so many had such a good time with these games and want another, I'm just not one of them.
So the details posted is Sora being grown up. Those details are shorter than the headline :P
Lol! Not sure why that is a detail on the 'Xbox One' version... Will Sora NOT be grown up in any other version? Seriously though, even if I'm getting it for PS4, I don't mind it being on the X1. Just means more sales, and more people experiencing a series I really love. Nothing wrong with that. :]
Can't wait to get KH2 in HD.
People in this article act like there are no X1 owners who've played a KH game before.
there are xbone owners that played KH? that can't be true, KH is a Playstation thing, no way would playstation gamers end up buying a MS console. I mean KH came out only 12 years ago when would the KH fans get the chance to move buy a MS console?
You are missing the point, HKgamer. almost every xbox gamer has owned a playstation at some point. It is more than likely, many of them have played KH, if they bought JRPGs on PS2 or PS3. Your outlook is very naive.
I think a lot of Xbox and Playstation gamers share more interests than they themselves even realize. And as The realness says, there are plenty of Xbox gamers who have played JRPGs in their lifetimes who are probably more than a little interested in KHIII. The game will probably not sell as much on PS4, but why not make the extra buck off of that other viable market?
@therealness Agreed. was sarcasm, kinda hard to see sarcasm online :P Just read my comment with a sarcastic mind and you probably realise that I was just laughing at all the fanboys.
The realness I refuse to believe that you and everyone who disagreed with hkgamer don't know sarcasm when they see it.
lol why do people care what platform a game goes on? Who cares, just means more people get to play it, get over it.
JRPGS don't do well on Xbox consoles. Why do you think they barely have any ? No one in Japan is gonna buy this for Xbox. KHI and KHII are PS games. Xbox gamers don't know anything about KH.
Never played this series no need to start now , great for old PlayStation gamers who moved to xbox though I guess.
The article said new details to be revealed at E3. I'm hoping one of those details is that KH3 is coming to the Wii U along w PS4 and X1. Please Square! Bring it to Wii U!
Not gonna happen. Nomura said the Wii U is far to weak for what he wants to do with the game.
He never said weak. He said it wouldn't run DirectX11. Which as everyone knows is something that is only on Microsoft systems. PS4 has something that is similar as does the Wii U. KH3 vould be made on Wii U if Nomura wanted to put it on there. And the graphics would look close to or identical to the other versions
I stand corrected, I thought that he didn't want to do it because it wasn't powerful enough to do all he wanted to do with the series, must have misremebered something.
I am sorry but its time for all games to go multiplatform cause not everyone can afford to buy all 3 systems and some not everyone wants all 3 either just for that game most just want only 1 system so all games should be on that system as well and to add i am looking foward to kingdom hearts 3
As long the PS4 version doesnt get a downgrade im ok with it.
good luck with that
All these guys complaining it's on Xbox. If you know me you know that I don't like the Xbox brand AT ALL. But at this point, who cares? It was announced for Xbone back at last years E3. No point in complaining now. We know which version will be in native 1080p, which version will sell more and will most likely get exclusive content, so it's just about whether or not you want to use the PS4 controller or the XBO's. Same goes for FF15.
I'm not complaining about KH3 ending up on XBO, not really. They'll be plenty of Xbox fans who've never held a PlayStation controller before, they'll be the most lost when it comes to story & plot. SE could however use the method Mass Effect 2 employed when the PS3 lacked the first entry. Kinda like how 358/2 Days became a movie in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix. But who wants to watch a game instead of play it? Or they could use as many flashbacks as an entire season of Lost. Gateway MT6706 2008
yea im excited for this, i miss KH. another game for my XB1
Glad its coming to the XB1. :)
