Kingdom Hearts III hints within KH 3DS, says Nomura

Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura has said that those anticipating the unannounced Kingdom Hearts III will find some answers regarding it with Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance on 3DS.

The KH creator made the remark in this week’s issue of Famitsu.

Nomura said that KH3 would also be the final chapter of Xehanort’s story in the series.

In terms of where the series will go after 3, Nomura said that a framework is in place, and that Sora would continue to be the main protagonist.

When asked if it would re-release old titles onto the HD consoles, Nomura said that Square Enix was looking into HD tech for previous titles. It isn’t clear if this is just for Kingdom Hearts or for other Square IPs as well.

For Dream Drop Distance, development is 40-50 percent completed and it will continue the series tradition of adding in a secret movie. No date for that as yet, though.
