Get your ass working Nomura, its been 6 years since kh 2.

FiftyFourPointTwo2969d ago (Edited 2969d ago )

Its 4 1/2 years. It was released in March 2006 in NA. December 2005 in JP.

People keep buying things like 358/2 Days, Coded, RE: Coded, Chain of Memories, and RE: Chain of Memories, so why would he make KH3 right now? He's raking in money from helpless slaves of the series, so that's what's gonna happen. They won't make KH3 until they're about out of milk with the spinoffs.

I jusdt got Birth By Sleep. Is is really outstanding. It's just as good as the console versions. But KH3 needs to get on its way, and use the tech of versusXIII.

knifefight2968d ago

[Yeah that's why Birth by Sleep wasn't on my list there. It's the rare exception ;) ]

rezzah2968d ago

Yea the reason why it shouldnt be part of that list is because its part of the story not some spin off.

Jaces2969d ago

It's worth the wait, take your time nomura-san make it the best KH game yet!

DigitalAnalog2969d ago (Edited 2969d ago )

If it wasn't for MS's hijacking, he would've released FFXIII instead of bloody Kitase.

Do want! Please bring it to PS3. I don't care if it comes out on multiple consoles. I just want it made from the ground up for the PS3!!!

Brklynty12969d ago

I do. Notice he said "Console" singular!

Lionalliance2969d ago

With its prequels and side stories, the Kingdom Hearts franchise has kept followers of the series engaged for years. Fans have anticipated the next big title in the franchise for some time: Kingdom Hearts III (KH III). In a recent interview, Tetsuya Nomura discusses life, his full schedule of projects, and notably what his plans are for KH III.

Nomura-san commented on the current challenges he faces developing KH III:

“For any sequel of the mainstream storyline of the Kingdom Hearts series, that would be Kingdom Hearts III”

He added:

“But the problem is that the opportunity of developing the sequel is not currently [possible]. The team is busy, I am busy.”

Even with his busy schedule, KH III is still something he wants to do and is preparing for. Nomura-san had this to say about his thoughts on the next chapter in the storyline:

I’m thinking about what’s going to be next after Kingdom Hearts II, the future that is Kingdom Hearts III. Time has nearly come to [work on] that concept.

With the game’s concept phase being in sight, it leads to the question: When can we expect it? When asked if we would see it on the current generation of consoles, he gave this revelation:

Yes it might be possible. It is my desire to develop the next Kingdom Hearts on the existing platform, but the problem with a new console is that it has new technical requirements… So, yes, I’m willing to create something on the existing console because when we aim for another non-existing future console, the release of the title will be far in the future. That’s my concern.

Nomura-san is a busy man, even stating he had to “sacrifice my private time, my marriage, my family time” to stay on top of all his current projects. At least KH III is one of those projects. No matter how long it takes, it will be worth the wait.

But I understand that he is busy....1 of the reasons I bought a PS3 was for KHIII, but i dont think it will come out for PS3 :(

tunaks12969d ago

probably be on Wii2, ps4, or what ever the 360's successor is called

Taken from the link. Doesn't completely debunk your statement, but it shows that he wants it out on one of the current gen's systems (I'm assuming that that is PS3, but who knows, could be for the 360 as well. Square seems to want to get stuff multi platform lately) So the probability of us seeing it next gen console is low.

tunaks12968d ago

Delays are inevitable.

-X-2969d ago

I don't think Kingdom Hearts is coming out this generation...but I also think that KHIII will come out on the the 360, or Wii since SE has been acting lately.

mandf2969d ago

My most anticipated game this gen after gow3.
