New info regarding next Kingdom Hearts

By Rolando . May 1, 2007 . 4:47pm



It’s been a while since Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix + was released as well as the extended secret ending to the game which, as totally expected, spurred up intense interest in the events seen in the extended ending which possibly alluded to a new Kingdom Hearts game. It wasn’t until Nomura himself debunked such speculation by saying there won’t be a Kingdom Hearts III; if anything, there’ll be projects, or a set of new series, that take place in the Kingdom Hearts universe, much like the offshoot Final Fantasy XIII games taking place in the game’s main universe. Sounds good in theory, but its best to wait until those titles see fruition to seek judgment.


Now, of course, new information from Kingdom Hearts Network has learned, after translating more of the Nomura interview in Famitsu magazine, that Nomura elaborates more on the next Kingdom Hearts project and what it could possibly be about. To quote Nomura from the interview


It is not Kingdom Hearts III, but it is an anecdote (extra or side-story) work! I think Sora [still] has a big role to fill! So let’s focus on other characters other than Sora for the following work now. (Tomo’s note: Nope, doesn’t mean new outfit for Sora…)



Nomura also hopes to explain more about the whole "Birth by Sleep" concept as well as what Mickey was doing in the World of Darkness and how he acquired a Keyblade. Lastly, which I find to be the most interesting part of the interview, Nomura reveals that should this suggested project of his take off, it may be hard to determine where the game may end up in which he does mention the possibility of it being the "PSP", "DS", or even cellphone.


Would you buy the next Kingdom Hearts spinoff if it appeared on either the PSP or DS? Survey says yes since the series is ever so popular.

    Overrated garbage that Square originally used Final Fantasy to sell. I’m actually getting pretty sick of them milking FF to death these past 5 years… How many sequels, prequels, and spin-offs have there been in that short time? I’ve lost count.

  • Mr. Mee

    well I’m interested in it. however, I do agree about them milking series too much but I will say that as long as the games are good I’ll buy them. I’m mostly tired of them making remakes of remakes of remakes. That really really annoys me.

  • Darwyn

    I wouldn’t buy it if it came out on a handheld.Thank you very much but I prefer my RPGs on a console.

  • Brandon

    rpg all day it will sell more i think

  • I have to agree with BlueNocturne. After playing the second game I’m wary of what Square is doing. These “new” games have to be new and have to be original titles that are made to take advantage of the system their being made for. I don’t want to be disappointed with another game like the GBA version of Chain of Memories.

    To answer the question now…maybe provided the titles aren’t just fan made cash ins. Only time will tell if that’s the case though.

    I’m more anxious to find out if they’ll ever announce or give hint to a US release of KH2: Final Mix+. They’d probably make more money off of that than they would off a Kingdom Hearts III or separate title in the universe as he’s suggesting. The PS2 version of Chain of Memories alone would probably do a lot better than anything else.

    i want kh3 not a stupid spin off kh3! kh3! kh3! by the way if i do buy the spin off it better be on either the ds or psp
