  • Interview Extracts

    June 2009: KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days Ultimania

    -- So is it possible that there will be another game connecting BbS and KH1? And might that be KH3...?

    Nomura: Who knows? I already have ideas for the next installment. But since Birth by Sleep isn't even out yet, I don't have to think about it until awhile from now. Recently everyone kepts asking me when I'm planning on coming out with KH3. Even though I'm currently busy with Final Fantasy Versus XIII, I'm also thinking that it's almost time to start thinking about it seriously. Though it's entirely possible that the next game in the series won't be KH3.

    Question 7: It's been a while since we've seen a new generation of Kingdom Hearts titles. There have been a lot of handheld and mobile version, but no console versions since the PlayStation 2. Are you thinking about making a next-generation Kingdom Hearts? Or do you prefer working on handhelds?

    TN: All I can say is that if there were to be a Kingdom Hearts III, then it would be on consoles. I have a desire to create this game, but it's just not the right time. I'm under pressure from KH fans, Disney, and Square Enix, and they all want Kingdom Hearts III. I know this, and I don't hide my desire to make this game. The biggest problem we're facing is our main developer on the franchise is busy with Final Fantasy, and the Birth by Sleep team is busy making Kingdom Hearts for the Nintendo 3DS. But we'll do it when the right time comes.

    September 2010: EGMi interview

    For any sequel of the mainstream storyline of the Kingdom Hearts series, that would be Kingdom Hearts III. But the problem is that the opportunity of developing the sequel is not currently [possible]. The team is busy, I am busy. I'm thinking about what's going to be next after Kingdom Hearts II, the future that is Kingdom Hearts III. Time has nearly come to [work on] that concept.

    Yes it might be possible. It is my desire to develop the next Kingdom Hearts on the existing platform, but the problem with a new console is that it has new technical requirements. So, yes, I'm willing to create something on the existing console because when we aim for another non-existing future console, the release of the title will be far in the future. That's my concern.

    July 2011: Famitsu Weekly interview

    -- Alright, last question on the topic. There are an overwhelming number of people who want Kingdom Hearts 3 to be released.

    Nomura: The answer for them has been prepared in KH3D.

I think keeping kh 3 in the dark helps us the gamers to have more exitement when it comes out... now here is the big BUT, since were in the dark we expect certian things like, maybe you Frozen lovers want frozen in the game, Others may want pocahantus (probably spelled that wrong >:P ) And others want Star wars Which sinceraly sounds awsome... but i dont think id like it except the possible lightsaber keyblade. (zwosh) and the AWSOME MASTER YODA {hmmm so you want to be a jedi.}. Anyway what im trying tosay is ... what if they dont put one of those in it. would it make some of us upset. Also can anyone tell me how to start a new topic, a might have forgotten. = (

I know right?! Why does Square Enix have to be so secretive about KH III like it's some kind of top secret project. I am willing to bet that Bill Farmer's tweet was true and Square just denied it to keep the fans in the dark -_-

I'm irritated they're not showing any new trailersfor KH3.

Asianjohn17, Jan 23 2015 05:01 PM

I hope it comes out if not this year than at least early 2016

How about these: Shrek teams up with Sora to defeat the darkness. Good idea?( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Ociel Cesena, Jan 13 2015 05:02 PM

Sora Kairi and Roxas should be interchangeably playable like GTA V. and they should not have Goofy in the game at all. When that rock fell on him after the fight with Demyx, I was so happy. I thought he was dead.

PFFT! YEAH RIGHT!  :angry:

Kamrin DiSandro, Jan 09 2015 06:45 PM

It's possible I hope so and looking for it when it comes out.
