Kingdom Hearts 3 head Tetsuya Nomura has explained that his imagination has been running riot following Disney’s acquisition of Marvel and Lucasarts, sparking potential ways to work each company’s IP into his ever-expanding world.

IGN asked Noruma what he thought Disney’s new acquisitions, to which he replied, “Whenever I hear of the news, I always say, ‘woah…they’ve done it again.’ The first thing I do when I find out this news is contact Disney and see if it’s something I can use [in Kingdom Hearts].”

However, Nomura confirmed that whenever he contacts each separate company and division he gets a varied response, “Disney’s companies are all very different. Sometimes the answer is ‘absolutely no,’ and sometimes the answer is, ‘…hmm, we don’t know…’”
