Kingdom Hearts Wii/DS In The Works

There has been more and more validation to the Kingdom Hearts Wii rumors that have been spreading through the web. The rumors which initially started from a well known Wall Street Journal article with Disney and Square Enix, where both companies openly stated that "they would like to see the franchise available on all three consoles."

Square Enix senior VP Michihiro Sasaki told the Wall Street Journal, "We don't want the PlayStation 3 to be the overwhelming loser, so we want to support them. But we don't want them to be the overwhelming winner either, so we can't support them too much."

Yea but going by square enix past action, i wont doubt the state of this rumor to much. And remember the wii is the biggest cash cow this generation. Wii + plus disney character = massive amount of money for square.

For one, if Square will bring XIII to 360, then you know "Exclusive" means nothing to them.

On top of which, you know that Square may or may not Push a Wii version, However, A company like Disney most definitely would.

I'll be playing Next Gen KH no matter what platform it is for, as long as the game is done correctly.

I have a wii but I would hate it to come to wii because it would completely degrade a quality title. Even if it goes multiplatform, the PS3 version would be nothing compared to what it could be... I wouldn't mind a PS3/360 share of kingdom hearts 3 but the wii would ruin it!

edit just read article:

They haven't even started kingdom hearts 3 yet... why would they be casting voice actors? The kingdom hearts team is currently working on FF 13 verses and some on FF 13 two games which square enix is pushing hard to speed development time on...

Just the same old rumour at the moment, but KH on the 360 is a stupid move cos the audience will not buy the game, but KH on the Wii is a very good move.

But if it does go to Wii I hope they only make the game Multi-plat and not exclusive as I would like to play the game on my PS3.

"We don't want the PlayStation 3 to be the overwhelming loser, so we want to support them. But we don't want them to be the overwhelming winner either, so we can't support them too much."

This is why you can't depend on third party developers. If you want to be dominant this gen, the only way todo it is with first party studios. Sony should buy out level 5 and Nis, so that they can have some rpgs studios. Level 5 only makes game for sony platform so i don't see why not, and the same goes for nis.

Level 5 better stay independent! If someone wants to buy them they better laugh in their face.

edit: Level 5 has been making DS games as well so not just Sony platform

Dark vader3744d ago

Well the way things are going, if they are smart they should try to acquire as many first party studio as possible.

PS360WII3744d ago

But I like Level 5 and their games. If anyone should 'buy' them it should be Square Enix that way they can still make games they want to and what system they want. Then again I still want them to be independent ;)

"Level 5 only makes game for sony platform so i don't see why not, and the same goes for nis."

Improbable.

Level 5 is the developer of Professor Layton series, both Curios Village and Pandora's Box (published by Nintendo by the way), and also Inazuma and of course, Dragon Quest IX... all this games for the Nintendo DS.

And Level 5 is currently developing a new Professor Layton game.

And about Nis, they just partnered with Nintendo and Atlus. They are developing several games for the DS, and one Wii game.

DS games by Nis include: Disgaea DS, A Witch's Tale, Rhapsody and Puchi Puchi.

So, I don't think Sony can buy them.

Tomdc3744d ago

sony already owns more developers than nintendo and microsoft put together... why would it need more?

This article is garbage. The source that the article is using mentions no platforms at all. Somehow despite this, they make the claim that it is in the works for the Wii somehow? O_o

Mikhal55693744d ago

Yes, this is all rumor and speculation, but if the games are being ported like the article says they are, the only logical consoles would be the Wii and DS. The PSP could be a long shot, but it probably would have happened by now.

roboid213744d ago

This is clearly not a rumour. The box art and info are definatley legit

Mikhal55693744d ago

The name on the box art is different than both games mentioned in the article. However, Final Mix has never been released outside of Japan and has a HUGE following. A port to the Wii would not be unrealistic at all.
