Famitsu Teases Kingdom Hearts III Details

Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura has revealed a few small details about Kingdom Hearts III in Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu (via Andriasang).

Nomura said that KHIII will be the last game for the series' main antagonist, Xehanort. But that won't mark the end of the franchise. Apparently a framework is already in place for future sequels, with Sora retained as the main character.

I just posted a blog about Japan and it's lack of impressive games over this gen.

Then I saw this and thought, "Finally".

Now after reading it, I'm back to "WTF Japan".

Regarding KH3 and Kingdom Hearts as a franchise I don't understand why you'd put multiples games that affect the MAIN franchises storyline onto other consoles besides the one it's been on from the beginning. That doesn't make any kind of sense. Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2 were PlayStation exclusives, so why would you make the 3DS version (a console that just came out, and isn't performing as well as hoped) have a story element that affects or involves the main games in the franchise. It's stupid. I could understand doing it for the DS with 3DS exclusive features since there are over 100 million DS out there and DS games are playable on 3DS, but that was a stupid move forcing people to buy the hardware just to play it.

That being said it seems like Kingdom Hearts 3 will be a multiplatform game. If what IGN says is true we're going to see a bunch of Final Fantasy Collection titles (each probably consisting of 3 games FF:C 1 - 3, FF:c 4 - 6, FF:C 7 - 9, and FF:C 10 - 12), and 2 Kingdom Hearts Collections (KH 1 & 2, and KH handheld games released for consoles). In then end we'll see Kingdom Hearts on PS3, 360, and probably Wii U as well, and given Sqaure's track record this gen I can say all of this confidently.

i'm excited for this, but i haven't played none of the spin-offs, it makes me mad that they are on different handhelds and they're necessary for the story

beavis4play2653d ago

yea - square enix has ruined another least - for me, they have.
i LOVED the first 2 but have no interest now that they've pimped it out to so many different handhelds and ignored consoles for so long.

For some reason I don't think this is a game that would be released this gen. With how long Nomura takes to release his games, I could easily see this being a lunch title for the ps4/xbox 720.

As I was saying in another article, as long as they make all the games after KH2 first game out in one package for the PS3 (so we can catch up) then I'll be fine because let's face it before KH2 came out you had the GBA Chain of Memories where if you didn't play it you would be really confused about what's going on in KH2. So please Sqaure have every game in one big package for KH before KH3 comes out....I think we can admit that by the time KH3 comes out I'm sure Sqaure can take Dream Drop Distance and 358/2 Days to the PS3 since they would of been out for ages.

I don't understand how you can have a 3DS game which continues the story onto the main game on the PS3. It's kind of like, don't you want us to enjoy the story in the main trilogy or do you want us to be confused the entire time. They should of stuck to the PSP and PSV for spin off's

At least we know they're working on it.

stonecold32653d ago

im happy because i got both of kh 1 ,2 on ps2 would be nice if they did an hd collection for the ps3 as for kh3 will get day one as well same with ffvs 13 .

SoundGamer2653d ago

Do want.

I hope we get a reveal at the next Square-Enix party.

It has been too long since Kingdom Hearts was on a home console, where it really belongs.

Don't get me wrong, I own all of the KH games, down to Re: CoM and 358/2 days on the DS and BBS on the PSP, but it doesn't feel the same as it did on the big screen.

Anyway, here's hoping!
