    Splatoon 2 is so much fun! I didn't play the original, so everything is new to me, but that is a very good thing in this case cause it makes it even more of a fresher time for eel! :P


Tetsuya Nomura says a Nintendo Switch version of Kingdom Hearts III is possible after the PS4 and Xbox One versions

Following the announcements made at D23 2017, including a new Toy Story world and a new, lengthy trailer for Kingdom Hearts III, series director Tetsuya Nomura talked with the staff of IGN. In speaking with IGN, Tetsuya Nomura claims that their main focus is releasing the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Kingdom Hearts III, but that they will consider releasing Kingdom Hearts III for the Nintendo Switch. You can read Nomura's full quote below:

“The Nintendo Switch is definitely a very interesting piece of hardware, but if we lightly say, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll be on the Nintendo Switch,’ I’m sure people will come back and say, ‘But what about the PS4 and Xbox One? We want them out first. Don’t focus on other platforms ... So for now, we want to focus on what platforms we’ve already announced we’re going to be releasing Kingdom Hearts 3 on. And so after, perhaps, maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.”


Nomura also talked about possibly releasing Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX on the Xbox One, saying that it is in consideration but that there might not be enough interest besides with the Western audience.

“Just like with the previous answer, if we were to announce yet another non-Kingdom Hearts 3 [project]...people are going to be like, ‘Hey, what’s going on?’ So we will want to focus on releasing on the platforms that we have already announced. Do the Western audiences want Kingdom Hearts titles on the Microsoft or Xbox platforms? Japan might say ‘well, we don’t want any more on Xbox.'”


Would you like to see Kingdom Hearts III on the switch, or Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX on Xbox One? Let us know in the comments!

I would want to see it on the Switch simply because then I would have to shell out less money to get get the game. I'm already forced to buy a new console just to play Mario Kart with other people (and be happy) and I've had no luck job hunting. If it means that I have to wait to play it, well some people don't have that luxury.
But is the Switch able to handle such a big game like KH3?

It can handle Breath if the Wild.

GUYS THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED. Today is crazy.  They also hinted at a possible second playable character. this is wild! 

Interesting, but I won't take this as definitely happening of course. This should be taken lightly.

I think the question at this stage regarding KH 1.5+2.5 should be more of if they'll release it on the Switch (no offense to Xbox players) as a follow up to if they'll release KH3 on the Switch. It'd be like a dream come true to play KH on-the-go and the Switch is honestly the perfect medium to fulfill that. Having it on-the-go I'd say is a more different experience that so far neither the PS4 or XBox One can offer.

It can handle Breath if the Wild.

That doesn't mean anything. Even if it does come to switch anyone that wants to play the best definitive version would either get it on PS4 or Xbox One 

KH3 on Switch makes wayyyyyyyy more sense than it being on XBox One lol

Peace!

YES, PLEASE release KH3 on the Switch after the PS4 and XBONE, I need more excuses to get my friends to play this series! And most especially, DEFINITELY release the 1.5+2.5 ReMIX on XBONE, it's the only thing that's going to rescue any sales for KH3 on XBONE in the first place. In fact, while you're at it, just do the same thing for the Switch when you get around to it.

 

And please don't seriously cave in to the whole "Oh Japan hates Xbox so yeah we won't release this on Xbox" BS, you're literally releasing KH3 on the same system, if you were really worried about a lack of interest for that system, you wouldn't bother with it in the first place. Just do the smart thing and get the ReMIXes on the same systems as KH3, even if the sales are mostly going to come from the west, so are the sales for KH3 on XBONE if you're sticking with that logic.

I would absolutely be open to it.

 

Like, even if I watched Youtube playthroughs of it, I guarantee I would get it the day it came out on the Switch.

http://www.dsogaming...come-to-the-pc/ I mean Nomura did say that KH3 uses DX11 as a tool for development and anything that can use the tool is under consideration Unreal Engine 4 makes it more likely.

 

Ok so this confirms there is no exclusivity deal in regards to the HD Remasters

Hopefully with the  possibility of a Switch version it means the possibility of PC Versions of the HD Remasters and KH3

preferably a year after KH3 releases on the announced platforms(PS4, and XONE)

I can kinda understand as the thing is they had no idea who the market leader would be so they decided to cover their bases and just release it on Xbox One. Though I hope they port all KH games to the Xbox One as I want them to be multiplatform in the future, I suspect manufacturing costs could be a hurdle arguably more so than the PC, since it's just dev costs they have to worry about, same thing can be said about the Switch version of KH3. Hopefully KH3 sells well on Xbox One for them to port the previous titles over.

Great news for the Switch fans!  But i secretly hope that Playstation will always be the one priority. 

You know how many times people have asked for an Xbox version of the collections since 2012 and we've seen the results of that each time. Rob also won't hold his breath for a Switch version of KH3 since he expects DQ more than anything else coming to that.

Thanks for informing us about this, Toom!

 

Hmm, so a Nintendo Switch version of the game is possible, huh? I think that's great news, considering that there's a big chunk of the fanbase that comes from Nintendo! I've always said that Nintendo fans deserve to experience Kingdom Hearts III by any means necessary! It'd be awesome for Nintendo fans to get the chance to play this game! And hey, if 1.5+2.5 is planned eventually for the XBox One, then that's awesome, because that way, more people will be pulled into the series, and thus it'll help the series grow with its fanbase! That, and that way Kingdom Hearts III wouldn't be the only KH game that would exist on a Microsoft console! :3
