The latest rumor on the street is that, the wii is going to be getting some Kingdom Hearts loving from its creators. The first ever Kingdom Hearts game will be announced for the Wii at this years Tokyo Game show.
if anything there is a wii version in the works ....highly doubt Square would hold back its potential on the Wii.... no offense to any wii fans ..you know its true though
Square Enix would never put their kid-friendly title on the only kid-friendly system. Or, for that matter, the best selling system that is easy to develop for!
How idiotic would Square be for trying to make the biggest profit possible!
It would be a step back from the previous Kingdom Hearts in every category.
Like most things, I'll play the "wait and see" game.
well its just a spin off not part 3 so thats fine, the creator said he will work on KH3 when he's done with versus 13
A spinoff which will be on handheld.
Not exactly..... Nomura said the next KH will be on either Portable(Mobile, PSP, DS). Go read his interviews >>;
I'm not buying KH on the Wii. Give KH: Bowling or some Wii sports spin off.
Pretty bad. Kindom hearts 3 with below ps2 graphics coming next year. Kinda suckssss did you see that crusin game on the wii haha.
Didn't everyone already agree that the Wii was had at least slightly better graphics than the last-gen systems? And citing the game w/ the worst graphics proves nothing about the capabilities of the system.
This game is going to either take a step back or take a big step back like crusin did if its wii exclusive. I own a Wii and im very disappointed with its games and plan on selling it when im done with smash bros actually. The only interest i have in the wii is how you can use your Mii in the games everything else is pretty much garbage. Its just like gamecube with a new controller I don't really see how these graphics are slightly better then ps2s either and I have a nice collection of wii games myself.
Isn't it amazing how the Wii, at the very least, by anyone's measure, has graphics at least as good as the Gamecube, and it was more powerful than the PS2 (which was the weakest console last gen) and the Wii would somehow be a step back?
Now if I could only show that 2 is less than 1 using the same logic...
i could only imagine what they could do with the ps3. i really hope this isnt true....
that's some rumor XD
if square-enix does bring KH to the wii, they'll bring an original KH instead of a sequel
However i wouldn't really say that gives it any more weight.
I think it could be a good move though.
id love to see the wiimote just pop out of nowhere when you stretch out your arm like the keyblade, and how youll obviously be able to do those quadruple backflip spinny attacks with no problem at all..
and with all those limit breaks its going to be simple doing all those flips and combos in mid-air right?
ain't that the truth
If its a spin off then who cars.. but there is no way they will not put a brand new one on the ps3 when the first two were on playstation2.
i don't have a wii but just imagine if they added some first party NINTENDO characters into the mix (ie. soul calibur 2 w/ link)....that would just be amazing...how likely is it to happen;not likely at all... but still imagine the possibilites.
Putting Mario or Donkey Kong in this game would just DESTROY it.
I could see Zelda...but not as much as I could see Shadow of the Colossus. The setting of that world is jus INCREDIBLE! It's the one thing that could improve that series.
Even if it does come to the Wii, Square could make something that is bigger then the 2 playstation2 games.
although kh3 is for playstation 3 no doubt but would be nice if they made a wii version too, with a different main character so you will understand more about the KHrealm.
and please dont disagree on me because you think Wii couldnt handle the PS2 games......>_< keep thy fanboy ignorance to yourself.
i don't know about you guys
That would suck so hard KH was born in the Sony PS2 since day one it has sold like hot cakes, again ninty trying to steal exclusives from Sony stupid bastards hate them with passion.
Shaka finally made alternate accounts to give himself bubbles.
how can Nintendo steal something if square makes the decision on bringing it to another console
and KH never was exclusive sorry dude GBA had a KH title too.
o the horror it must be for you.
So by your logic, PS3 gets KH3, and Wii gets FF13.
Ok, Wii agrees.
Maybe there would be a sidestory for the Wii, but that's it at most. I know there is one already planned for a handheld system, so I doubt the Wii would ever get the main story for a game.
IMO, Disney Interactive will put the main game (KH III Keyblade War) on Blu-ray. The PS3 will get this- 1) Disney supports Blu-ray. 2) More space the better, for better action, longer gameplay. 3) SIXAXIS control would work just as well.
I could agree if you say that graphics could be better, but the sixasis does not come even close to what the Wii mote is capable of doing.
Kingdom Hearts and thus Square can have it on whatever systems they want to develope it for.
I highly doubt sony, or square is stupid enough to make the 3rd KH wii exclusive, unless Square has remade 1 and 2 and is puting them on the wii...
A spinoff on the Wii or handhelds, I can see that happening. The actual KH sequel however at this point I'd expect to see on PS3 whenever it's made.
I will have to get rid of my PS3 for a Wii then. Or buy a Wii with it.
There's already one for next gen systems which is the PS3. This one is a spin-off and i bet the PS2 will be getting the port. No lost here for us PS3 owners. And it's already be long known that kingdom hearts was going to be multiple games. This spin off probably will come out before the PS3 version because SE said they won't make a PS3 game until end of 2008. Also the the team making kingdom hearts is making FFXIII versus.
I am a hardcore Kingdom Hearts fan, and this would suck giant nuts. I have no intention to buy a Wii. I know most people will disagree because I'm gonna bash the Wii, but I think it's the cheapest piece of sh!t of the 3 NEXT-gen consoles(hence the reason I'm not buying one).
I see the Wii as something just as a party gimmick, and that is it, I would rather play Singstar or Scene It!(aka Microsoft's Buzz) if I wanted a party gimmick(which I don't). I'm really happier partying without games seeing as how so much of my time is already absorbed into videogames on a consistent basis.
You guys realize that Square was originally with Nintendo, right? The Roman Numerals are not just to make the title cooler; there were 6 Final Fantasies prior to VII, which all appeared on the Famicom.
Here's a random fact: Did you know that when Kingdom Hearts was released in Japan, it didn't have the Ice Titan or the Sephiroth battles? Square then released Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix, which had those two boss battles, extra cutscenes, extra keyblades, and an additional battle with a member of the Organization (the guys in black cloaks). This version was only released in Japan.
They have recently released Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix +, which is only available in Japan, and has a lot of extra stuff the U.S./European versions didn't have. My guess: Considering that it has been clearly stated that the next KH will be on DS, PSP, or Mobile Phone, they're going to port KH II: Final Mix+ over to the Wii by adding waggle and Classic Controller Support, since it has the same number of buttons, and its analogs are in the same place.
Sony has more money than Nintendo and Square goes where the money is as long as it's a japanese company.
why do they want to do that, just to make money. plus it goin look like ps2 graphics or less. they should put it on the ps3 it will sell big.
It its the cheapest of the three.
This rumor can be anything, but not new... We heard about this one from the moment we have learned that the next Kingdom Hearts wouldn't be Kingdom Hearts 3, but a spin-off or entire parallel series or whatever, since it's not to be called "Kingdom Hearts 3".
..but this is my #1 prediction from TGS.
Square's already said to expect a surprise at TGS, and since FF and DQ are already locked down, KH is the only one that can be a 'surprise'.
If true, I'll be immensely pissed.
First the lacklustre KH2, and now this?
Square, don't make me hate you. >_<!
It is obvious that Square is going back to Nintendo both on Wii and DS. Lower production costs, bigger consumer base and possible enhanced gameplay - why not?
Well, I own a Wii, but only recently got a PS2, and haven't played KH or KH2. If I have a chance to get KH3 on the Wii, I'll think about it, but I don't know anything about the first two. I'm very likely missing background information right now, and, knowing that, I may pass it up.
I'd love to see it for the Wii, but I'm not always willing to jump into a sequal. With what I've heard about KH, I'd probably bite, but probably not as quickly as I would if I had played all of them before this.
Everyone read that Kingdom hearts is going to next-gen consoles meaning Wii and PS3.
not KH3, nomura already said this in an interview, and like i said, he will work on KH3 aqfter versus 13, which comes out 2009, so its gonna be a while till KH3. but its possible for a spin off on wii, since a spin off came out on GBA
Regardless, it will HAVE to be a purchase for many KH fans.
Why? Because that's what happened with KH: CoM.
Even in interviews, and reviews, it was stated that the story from CoM was integral to KH2, albeit bits and pieces were explained within KH2.
Bah, screw it. If KH goes to Wii, I'll actually have a really good reason to purchase the Wii [something I plan to do when the Wii hits ~100, anyway]...so..whatever =\
lol source, dunno where link is, it was a long time ago. i know you can probally find it in IGN in KH3 section or versus 13 section.
but yeah i know the story will go with it, definatly, but it wont be the main attraction. tetsuya wouldnt sacrifice the great gameplay controls for simple wii slashes, especially with all of sora's attacks.....imagine thousand heartless battle with the wii-mote slashing....ouch my arm lol.
there cud be a new battle system for the spin off if it came on wii tho. like they did with chain of memories. which i wouldnt mind
nintendo made final fantasy sony took over the wonderful francise! Wii may get KH sound like an even trade to me!
It isn't impossible, it's even very much likely.
Square Enix already stated this isn't Kingdom Hearts 3, then it's possible the game will be more like Chain of Memories.
And which console was Chain of Memories released for? Gameboy Advance, a Nintendo console.
i have never played this game
what is it like?
The above screens are real-time shots for the upcoming Super Mario Galaxy, obviously exclusive to the Wii.
Unless you can find any PS2 screens that look better than this, you have no grounds to claim that putting the KH series on the Wii would be a 'step back.'
Mind you, Mario Galaxy supports 60 fps, motion blurring, soft shadows, and normal mapping. Good luck in your searches.
Mario galaxy has some badass graphics,in fact is the only Wii game to date that makes me go holy &*%#!! that looks nice.
If all games for the Wii could look like this i be even happier with my Wii.(Which is sitting next to my PS3)
Square wouldn't have to make a new Engine, or use one in the making... They would simply have to re-use/port the Kingdom Hearts 2 engine to the Wii, tweak it a little bit, and the controls would be a perfect fit for the Wii. Furthermore, the target audience and the install base make a lot of business sense.
A Wii Kingdom hearts has a lot of potential, and as much as I dislike the Wii, I would like to see it happen, but only as a spin-off, like the gameboy game. That way, after FF Versus XIII comes out, Kingdom Hearts 3, the final chapter can use that same engine, since it'll be complete by then, the install base will have surpassed critical mass long ago, and the price for PS3 will be right (for the target audience).
