Do you want a new console Kingdom Hearts? So do we. But who cares what we think? What does series creator Tetsuya Nomura think?! He wants one too. Epic win then.
Speaking to GI, Nomura hinted that a new console Kingdom Hearts might actually be on the cards, announcing that “it’s about time” the KH franchise returned to consoles.
“We have been invited to make games on different new platforms, and every time we have created titles making sure that they are highly compatible with the platform,” said Nomura.
“The PS Vita is definitely a powerful device that is very interesting, but because of it’s high power, there isn’t much of a difference with a console. So even if we were to make a game, we would have to be very careful about how to create it for that device.”
Most importantly, Nomura added, “I also feel that it’s about time that Kingdom Hearts should go back to being on a console.”
When pushed on a possible new Kingdom Hearts sequel, Nomura remained mute, but teased at Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance might give you some idea of where the franchise is going next.
“I’m not able to disclose any information on what’s coming next or any other future plans, but you may be able to find a hint if you play through Dream Drop Distance to the very end.”
Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance is out July 20th. Looks like we’ll be buying it now. It’s been eight years since Kingdom Hearts II.
