Wanna know more on the newest Kingdom Hearts game? Play to the end of Birth by Sleep for the PSP, according to creator of Kingdom Hearts Tetsuya Nomura.
Speaking in the latest issue of Famitsu, Nomura reveals that Birth by Sleep will contain a secret video in the game, which will quite possibly reveal the next Kingdom Hearts game.
“I think there are a lot of puzzling elements, so maybe they’ll want to play the next game…And there’ll be a secret movie too.”
Despite being jabbed if it was Kingdom Hearts III or not, Nomura refused to answer if it was or not.
“The next game will be the next game (laughs)”
Birth by Sleep is out this Winter for the PSP in Japan. As for Kingdom Hearts III, we reckon it’ll involve Spiderman now, innit?
Thanks, Nintendo Everything.

Kingdom Hearts creator and producer, Tetsuya Nomura, has said that the idea of the game did not appeal to him at first, and Sora carried a chainsaw as a weapon originally.
“Square wanted to make a game starring Mickey Mouse, and Disney wanted a Donald Duck title. Meanwhile, I wanted neither,” he told Famitsu.
“The first weapon I showed Disney was a chainsaw. It was this chainsaw-like weapon that I had a rough sketch of when I first showed my concepts to Disney. Everyone got this scrunched-up look on their face and nobody said a word in the entire room.
“Dead silence. And I thought ‘No, I guess this wouldn’t work, huh?’”
