Tetsuya Nomura has told Famitsu Kingdom Hearts III will happen at somepoint.

Huzzah!

The series’s creator told the magazine fans have been pushing him for a sequel.

“Fans and partners alike are pressing us for it, so we’ll work to realize it as soon as possible,” said Nomura.

He wouldn’t confirm if development would be carried out in Osaka – where the portable spin-off, Birth by Sleep, was made – or in Tokyo, where development on Nomura’s current project, Final Fantasy Versus XIII for PS3, as well as Kingdom Hearts I and II took place.

Thanks, UFFS.

    “we’ll work on it when we finally get no money out of all the spin-offs we’ve been doing. And given the recent track at Square, we’ll make sure we do our best to fuck it up”

    that’s what i understood.

    You can bet your bottom ass bitch that Kingdom Hearts III, or any Nomura game, will end up being a PlayStation title.

    The only exception to that is 358/2 Days for DS.

    Other then that, it’s a PS3 title.

    Bet on it.

    Its Square Enixs choice though aint it Johnny i mean if they decide KH 3 is going Multi Platform then he couldnt do anything about it.

    Don’t think it will be on PS3 as we only have 2 more years til they announce the next gen consoles they currently aren’t developing it. Tetsuya is currently in the middle of development for Versus so unless they are giving to the studio that develops the DS series…

    I’d wager Disney have a pretty large say, and I couldn’t be surprised if they saw the Wii as an attractive option.

    Then Disney and Square would wonder why they only sold 2k in the first week.

    :) at PB. If it ever comes out i think it be like this.

    KH 3 = Ps3
    KH3 spin off = Wii

    Nomura is a confirmed Sony fanboy. His projects are only good enough for black, shiny products that he can see himself in.

    Wii would’ve seemed like a sure bet a few years back, but Squenix’s Wii stuff has hardly been flying off the shelves. I think they’ll stick with Playstation…. unless they make it a PSP game. Ooh, controversial!

    “You can bet your bottom ass bitch that Kingdom Hearts III, or any Nomura game, will end up being a PlayStation title.”

    Back then, you could actually get away with releasing a title on one single format, because that one single format had more units sold in 3 years than the current core gaming consoles (PS3 and 360) have sold in the same time combined.

    It’s not going to be single platform unless Square Enix intentionally want to kill itself.

    Given most of its sales are usually in the US… yeah, I agree.

    You Feel Proud The 360 Gets A 3 Disc Version Of FFXIII Don’t You?.. Have Fun Disc Swapping.

    Oh noes… disc swapping? Why wasn’t anyone told? Oh god… what will anyone do? Jesus, someone think of the children! I mean, wow, a gamer will really have to get up every 15 or so hours to change the disc? Goddamn, that’s just wrong.

    i doubt a title that would sell decent in the west would not be multiplatform. There is still room for niche exclusives that wouldn’t sell on 360 but Kingdom Hearts surely not.

    Don’t Worry You’ll Get The RROD Not 2 Hours Into The Game Anyways So YOU Won’t Have To Worry About Any Disc Swapping.

    See RGW, I read your posts here, and I am thinking “This guy is a douche PS3 fanboy, and that is just as bad as a 360 fanboy.” And we know just how far that arguement goes, right. I don’t like you or the stupid things you say. STFU and GTFO.

    They eventually burn out as people get bored with them TJ707. After a while they either stop acting like brain damaged seals or go and troll other sites where they get a better success rate.

    I’m not bored with this one yet though.

    You really want to get into *that* argument?

    It’s actually very much accepted, due to heavy circumstantial evidence to prove it, that the individual we know as Jesus Christ did actually exist at some point in history.

    The “Verruca Gnome” sounds like the name of a failed console.

    In relation to the conversation on the last page…

    During the company’s investor call today, Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the company’s current approach to the video game market when compared to the introduction of Disney Interactive Studios in 2007. In his answer, he noted that the company would be publishing fewer titles for “high-end” systems, but suggested that the company may soon be publishing Marvel-based titles to make up for the shift. The high-end consoles weren’t named, but it’s likely he was referring to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, as he stated “Disney-branded games seem to perform better on the Wii and DS platforms.”

    lol
