Square Enix Considering Kingdom Hearts 3D HD Remaster

By Sato . September 24, 2014 . 1:50am

Kingdom-hearts-3

Square Enix didn’t share much about Kingdom Hearts III during this year’s Tokyo Game Show, but director Tetsuya Nomura shared the latest for the upcoming game and series in an interview in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. Below are the relevant points of interest. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]

 

  • There have been reports from foreign media that Kingdom Hearts III co-director Tai Yasue mentioned the Disney film Frozen [being in Kingdom Hearts III], but these are false, as it was never denied nor confirmed, and was misinterpreted as being a fact.

 

  • Choosing new worlds for Kingdom Hearts III is also proving to be a difficult task for Square Enix.

 

  • The conversation between the two mysterious characters heard during the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix trailer from E3 is actually longer, at around two minutes.

 

  • With the wait between Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts III, along with more development for Kingdom Hearts X [Chi], Square Enix want to cut down the waiting time for fans as much as possible.

 

  • Kingdom Hearts X [Chi] and Kingdom Hearts III’s stories are closely related, so they’re being written at the same time.

 

  • Square Enix are putting serious consideration into making an HD version for Kingdom Hearts 3D, as it’s the only one that doesn’t have one.

 

  • The development for Kingdom Hearts III is moving smoothly according to plan.

 

  • Square Enix seem to be having some sort of design problems due to engine-related issues, but currently, they’ve advanced in the scenario writing and world choices, along with designs for Sora and Riku’s new outfits.

 

  • According to the Osaka development team, Sora’s mobility is way too high, and it almost felt like he was invincible at around his end-game level.

 

  • They currently have a great variety of Keyblade transformations, and compare it to Birth by Sleep’s original way of fighting using Keyblades.

 

  • Besides Kingdom Hearts III, Square Enix have various projects [for the series], but at the moment, they have plenty of offers and plan on prioritizing those first.

 

Kingdom Hearts III is in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

  • Shippoyasha

    Now the strange naming of the series bites it on its ass. Now it sounds like they are making a 3D version of the game.

  • Kaihedgie

    Oh good, they’re actually getting new outfits

    Also, Dream Drop Distance really does not need an HD Remaster

    • Bobby Jennings

      I’d like a port of the game just so I can play it on my PS3.

      My 3DS just got stolen so yeah.

      • Hound

        Thief is gonna be so disappointed when they hear about the new model.

        Soon people in highly populated cities will be practically giving 3DSs away for an upgrade.

        • Alter

          They could just stole new one.

  • AlphaSixNine

    I want Kingdom Hearts 3D on Vita. Please?

    • Hound

      I’m surprised they didn’t release the remixes on vita like they did with FFX and X-2.

      • Prinnydoom

        Could still happen. However they might find issue with doing it because of less power on the vita……don’t quote me on that cause I don’t know, just a guess.

        • Hound

          Squeenix has the resources to fix such rendering troubles if they needed to.

          Just look at how smooth and buttery Smash is on the 3DS. That was no small accomplishment and Squeenix is well known for being able to heavily downsize a game without much sacrifice.

  • jugun

    Don’t support this they want to make it so they don’t have to work on KH3 these sneaky bastards =.=

    • Ronldbx6

      I think of it as playing a KH game while waiting for KH3 to get finished. They don’t want us to get bored.

    • Ni ~Algidus~

      sometimes I want to be able to read people minds through the internet just to see how you guys came to this type of resolve

      • jugun

        I was saying it in more of a joking tone but you would have to read my mind to get it XD

  • Prinnydoom

    Hey as long as they don’t rush the job and overlook anything major then I have zero complaints. KH 3 will defiantly be one for the books anyway, can’t wait.

  • kenshee

    HD remaster? Could only see it work really well on ps4, given it has a touch pad, but their plan seems to be ps4/xb1 multi platform so… yeah not sure how they’re gonna do this unless they’re just tossing aside the touch aspect entirely.

    If they release a ps4 version and after that a ps4 super collection with 3d HD, kingdom hearts X’s story (I dunno how relevant it is? They seem to want us to think it is lol) and both ps3 remasters included I’m gonna be a bit annoyed tbh lol.

    • Hound

      I could see that happening but being expensive compared to buying everything separately at the time that such a collection would first get released.

      Maybe PS4 will have a “PS3 Classics” list in the PS4 PSN by then as well

  • Ryo

    It will never happen, but it would be cool if when KH3 came out a remaster of KH3D came with it. It’s a direct sequel to KH2 and is hugely plot relevant, so it’s a bit weird that all of these side games that basically don’t affect much plot-wise have remasters and 3D might not have one by when KH3 comes out. I get why, since it’s the latest one and not for an old system like the other remastered ones, but still.

    • Hound

      didn’t 358 just get cut scenes? I wouldn’t be surprised if they just toss anything plot-necessary into KH3 if 3D isn’t remade, but maintains some importance

      • Ryo

        Yep, and so did recoded. Basically the games that ended up on the DS got turned into long movies that came with the remasters, so it could definitely happen with 3D I think, unless there’s some kind of agreement with Nintendo saying they can’t do that with KH3D.

        • zuuum

          but,but… 3D was way too fun to end up as “cutscenes”!!
          *patting my sweet little meowjesty and meow wow*

          • Ronldbx6

            Exactly, it would be sad to have to only watch KH3D in cutscenes. Flowmotion and everything else was so fun!

      • Ronldbx6

        Sounds exactly what they would do, instead of trying to figure out how to convert the double screen gameplay of the 3DS onto the PS3, “Lets take the easy way out and do all cutscenes!” *Me -_-

  • David García Abril

    “Kingdom Hearts X [Chi] and Kingdom Hearts III’s stories are closely related, so they’re being written at the same time.”

    Man! They just don’t learn, do they?

    Square, releasing important bits of the story in different platforms DOESN’T WORK!!!

    • Gemlit

      Um, ya. Of course, it works. It’s just that we have to fork over more $. Therefore it is just annoying. Also, video games are a luxury so no one really has to buy them.

    • Ronldbx6

      Maybe the might remake KH X in the form of cutscenes or something so that people can understand the story.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    Hopefully Frozen is not in KH3

    • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

      Sorry I haven’t watched Frozen so I may sound ignorant but whats wrong with this world being in KH.

      • Kurisu

        I’m guessing it’s because everyone kept obsessing over Frozen. I honestly don’t mind Frozen, I actually enjoyed it, but I can understand that people are tired of it being shoved down their throat all the time by fans.

        • There’s also the “too soon” factor. There’s plenty of other things to choose from, after all. Why not Great Mouse Detective, for instance?

          • The Rescuers (Down Under) needs to be hit upon at some point if we’re talking about mice.

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        i just find it overrated, and there are a lot more disney classic that deserved (and actually are better than it) to be in KH before that movie.

        It just seems to be popular mainly because of “OMG DISNEY IS NOT SEXIST AND FINALLY BREAKING THE DAMSEL ON DISTRESS TRUE LOVE KISS CLICHE”

        B***H please, plenty of other Disney movies manages to do strong and good females without boldly makes it “female dominated” as Frozen.

        Plus most Disney worlds in KH will ended up as filler world WITHOUT ANY LIFE (Empty Coliseum lol) anyway. So some people who are requesting Frozen are overexaggerating about how the existence of it will make/affect the game

        • That’s current internet/media phenomenon for you. Every little thing gets bloated out of proportion and spread in seconds. Frozen became a sensation because of Tumblr, and other social sites that shove every actor/show/movie down people’s throat like Supernatural, Tom Hiddleston, bucket challenge etc etc etc. The only thing I found “progressive” in Frozen is the supposedly gay family in the sauna which I found very cool of them. Othen than that it’s really a paint-by-number Disney movie.

          • Miss_Madness

            Actually I think had more to do with the song then anything else. Tumblr doesn’t have that much of an effect on main stream media.

          • I think it actually does but indirectly. It’s the source of all things giffed and people copy them on all kinds of boards and forums. So it will have more exposure and reconition among internet people.

      • Aunna Terrell

        I think the main issue is how overly popular (and now decently hated by a vocal number) the movie is. Disney is quickly milking the series with sing along video release, sequel novels, Frozen on Ice, Frozen added to Once Upon a Time, a Broadway musical, a sequel short with returning cast and new songs, and much much more.

  • Chip

    I’m not surprised they’re having difficulties. They’ve kind of hit every major classic Disney Renaissance film as far as I can remember, and referenced quite a few of the Pre-Ren films that are smaller in scale and useability. Plus there are a few films that either wouldn’t work (Aristocrats/Rescuers) for being a bit drab and boring, or just want to be swept under the rug for awkwardness (Song of the South, Fox and the Hound, Black cauldron). They ‘could’ dip into the Pixar pool, and no doubt Frozen would sell…But who knows?

    As far as Kingdom Hearts 3D? I’m torn. On the one hand, i absolutely HATE handheld gaming. It hurts my hands. But on the otherhand, I don’t have a PS4 and Square considers the PS3 dead. So Its still lose-lose for me.

  • JSYK

    Can they not remaster KH3D? Like that’s the only reason why I bought a 3DS! (well okay there were others but..) An interesting read however is that Sora seemed to be invincible at end game? So will there be little or no post game? I smell DLC. God no.

    • Alter

      LMAO, you already play it, so be it.

      • JSYK

        true enough. but makes the “supposed” exclusivity less worth it. I just wish they included it in 2.5HD. Or make KHX similar to days and coded but goodluck with that. LOL

    • Ronldbx6

      And? I bought my psp and 3ds just to play Birth By sleep and Dream Drop Distance but that was in 2010 & 2012. I don’t mind being able to play them on PS3 in HD on a big flat screen. Besides my psp is dead now. Also I never got to play the final mix version of Birth by Sleep so bring it!

      • JSYK

        good for you then!

  • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

    I want Dumbo to be a world so Sora can get drunk off his ass and fight Pink Elephant Heartless in some weird PCP nightmare.

    • Stephen Mc Devitt

      That would actually to be awesome. You wouldn’t need a world, just a black floor, a black skybox and waves of pink elephants.

      • Ronldbx6

        sounds awful

  • s6_miller

    The only console that it could even remotely be ported to would be the Wii U. The game was pretty heavy with using the touch screen,

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      but it wont because Square Enix has nothing for Wii U

    • Alter

      ofc, they could remap it to somewhere else, they have the source code, they could do it anytime.

    • Ronldbx6

      The reason for the HD remasters were to have them all on one console so that people could catch up on the story before playing KH3. Why would they put one KH game on WiiU and WiiU owners not being able to play KH3? If people want the full KH experience you must have a PS3 and then eventually get a PS4.

  • Kornelious

    1. Well I still think a frozen world would be nice :3

    2. Well you do have almost a decade of new age Disney films to choose from so I can imagine…

    3. Then why didn’t you SHOW IT!?

    4. Well as long as it doesn’t cut into the games development….

    5.Then why haven’t you localized it yet!?

    6. That would be pretty cool, I really liked 3D and would love to play it on a console….. But as the most recent game in the series does it really need one? And it’s gonna feel weirdbeing the only one not bundled with the others (unless iit’s for PS4 O_O) And don’t you guys have enough work on you hands as it is?….. Well I won’t complain either way….

    7. Well at least something with the game is going right :P

    8. I’m sure it’s no big deal…. I MUST see those costumes though! :D

    9……. Isn’t that how Sora always is by the end? Just make a load of equally challenging bosses and you have a recipe for over the top FUN! (Especially illy if you add Sephiroth!)

    10. HELL YEAH! ……Though you still can’t figure out why Sora is overpowered? :p

    11. Please PLEASE just focus on KH3 for now…. It’s been a long enough wait already -_-

    • Ronldbx6

      I don’t know how much longer we have to wait for KH3 but I wouldn’t mind playing an HD remaster of Dream Drop Distance while waiting.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    Drakengard world or cameo please

    • Freud_Hater

      Hahahahahaha.

      Yeah, I love the idea, but it’s neeeeeever gonna happen. Especially if the cameo is from D3’s protagonist, the insane, sex-craving, sororicide-committing woman, can’t have those kind of characters in the kid friendly KH series… heck, there aren’t very many Cavia protagonists that could fit the bill: Nier? The guy who unwittingly kills dozens upon dozens of children and innocents who were only trying to survive? Yeah, don’t think so… I haven’t played D1 or D2, but I haven’t heard much good about Caim and Nowe, either… So yeah, nice dreams XD

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        Nier isn’t that sadist though. Considering he doesn’t really know the true nature of creatures that he loves to kill so much.

        Sadly, Heartless has plot armor that allow them to be revived when killed

    • Göran Isacson

      “Come on Caim, let’s get these Heartless and protect this orphanage!”
      “Alright Caim, you’re really good at fighting Heartless! But you’re getting kinda close to the orphanage… C-Caim, you gotta stop swinging- OH NO YOU’RE SETTING IT ON FIRE- WHY ARE YOU STOMPING ON THEM THAT’S NOT HOW YOU PUT OUT FIRES CAIM NO!”

      Best cameo ever.

  • Black Heaven

    This seems… as expected?
    Will it work? No issue with the touchy screen and double screens when porting to consoles? But meh, just bring it! They could bundle it with the KH [Chi] to be the cinematic / text based version for the supposed lore.

    I’m currently holding off playing KH3D as I want to play 2.5 first. I never got to play Birth by Sleep on PSP and I don’t know much about RE:coded so … just to keep my (re)playing in proper order :)

    Also, I wouldn’t mind too much if they add Frozen. But while they’re at it, add Star Wars and Marvel and the other franchises Disney has collected this past decade. I’d imagine the lore will be much more of a mess that way but… hey, fan-service?

    • Ronldbx6

      sounds like you have some catching up to do. Good luck.

  • “Choosing new worlds for Kingdom Hearts III is also proving to be a difficult task for Square Enix.” Due to licencing issues? Because I don’t see what’s the complication in picking ideas from years of successful and recognized Disney movies.

    • Jeremy Noble

      Its most likely because most of the popular ones have already been done. I doubt they will be bringing back too many of the old worlds. Personally, i hope the Lion king comes back because of the tv show disney is making.

    • Ryo

      They already did most of Disney’s most popular worlds as well as their classic ones and visited a lot of them multiple times. There’s not much to pick from unless they want to start using obscure worlds or start in on Pixar/Marvel stuff. I’m actually a little bit worried because I didn’t like the Tron or POTC worlds and those were put in right as they were making movies for those, so I wonder if what will happen again.

      • Hound

        Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars are fair game now.

      • I share your fear for these worlds since they are very bland in-game. But there are still Disney movies aside from Pixar which can be used: Emperor’s New Groove, Princess And The Frog, Fox And Hound, Sword In the Stone, Robin Hood. Plus they could disney-fy live characters like Mary Poppins and other iconic performances. Everything is open for developpers who actually care about their craft. But then This might seem like I would be blaming them for lacking imagination or running out of creativity and risk-taking…which seems to be Square’s motto nowadays.

    • Vander

      Let’s see… Atlantis, Sword in the Stone, Robin Hood, Emperor’s New Groove, Pocahontas, Jungle Book, Princess and the Frog, FUCKING TREASURE PLANET, Chicken Little, Wreck-It Ralph, Big Hero 6, Lilo and Stitch based on Hawaii and maybe Tangled and Frozen. I think they could work.

      And if they decide to go into Pixar territory, then there’s Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Cars for mini-games, maybe even Up.

      • PreyMantis

        How about them Marvel and Star Wars?

  • Blati. Boyu.

    Can Square Enix do something else than remakes and ports!?

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      “please be excited”

      • Stephen Mc Devitt

        How many Japanese companies say that?

        • Ferrick

          “Please Understand”

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    KHIII will likely only have a handful of worlds like every other one, they cram in everything.

    We’ll probably see Neverland and Mt. Olympus as demonstrated in the first trailer but I imagine we’ll see 100 Acre Wood for more mini-games.

    As for new worlds, just have the Helicarrier, Coruscant as well as Arendelle and that Ice Castle from Frozen. It’ll be easy to have Elsa and Luke Skywalker as allies but it’s hard to pick one of the many Avengers.

    The Colosseum will also be a great place to have in Gaston and Marvel characters as bosses.

    I hope Noctis will be mayor of Traverse Town or Twilight Town with Lightning as a short, pudgy, middle-aged woman with the personality of that mean old sheriff Kirk from Happy Days.

  • UltimagaWeapon

    Everything is going smoothly in the development yet they have engine-related issues… Ok.

    Maybe I should play Kingdom Hearts Chi, or wait for KH Re:Chi. Either way 日本語を読められるのは良かったwww

    If they’re going to make 3D into HD maybe they should make proper remakes of Days and Re: Coded too. Please SquareEnix~

    • Ronldbx6

      I don’t think we’re ever going to get a proper Remake for Days and Re:coded. They’ve already remade them in the way they desired. They didn’t want to stall the wait for KH3 anymore. Sad, I really wanted to play with each organization member in glorious HD.

  • I guess I’m not too weird that I don’t really want to see 3D ported to an HD console– it was a great game on its’ own, really, and it’s recent enough that people shouldn’t have a problem getting their hands on it, unless if they’re severely purist to Sony consoles, or in financial straits.

    I do agree with the point though that if they do make it, they should make full HD versions of Coded and Days too– otherwise, it’ll be too much if they make it just to bring out with the other games on PS4/X1.

    • Ronldbx6

      Resident Evil Revelations was ported from the 3DS to the PS3 and Xbox 360, it did fine so I don’t see what the problem is. Not everyone can get their hands on a 3DS and there are still some people who haven’t. I bought my 3DS just for Dream Drop Distance. Most people aren’t willing to do that just for one game.

      • I guess it’s sorta weird, cause I have to wonder what a person’s tastes are that Dream Drop Distance is literally the /only/ thing that’d interest them about the 3DS. Of course, that’s getting into a weird territory of arguments.

        While it is a true point that there have been ports between the 3DS and HD consoles, I just don’t know, it feels like a sorta “too soon” thing for the game to get an upgrade/port already. I guess this would be different if we were looking at a 2015/2016 release instead, though.

        I think the main problem though is that people are used to the two games + movie setup that 1.5/2.5 have had, so it would likely be a harder sell for them to push a single upgraded game that isn’t really even in demand, unlike how RE: CoM was at least in demand cause of KH2 Final Mix, and because a lot more people skipped the game on the GBA, thinking it was unimportant. At the least, I imagine the gap between people who got CoM and people who got 3D is a much wider one, and by now, most fans will have learned that every bit of the series ties in, in some fashion.

        • Ronldbx6

          I agree with your last paragraph on your concerns about Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance being a stand alone HD remaster title. However I’ll explain “what a person’s tastes are that Dream Drop Distance is literally the /only/ thing that’d interest them about the 3DS.” It was more of that I really like and enjoy the KH series so I will follow it wherever console it goes. I bought other 3DS games as well but my intentions were to play KH. Also I bought my psp just for Birth by Sleep. Of course I bought other titles like Dissidia, Crisis Core FF7, and The 3rd Birthday that I enjoyed.

          • I guess that’s a fair point, I just tend to find the argument/stance of “I don’t want to buy something for one game” to always be sorta weird, personally, since it’s something I see crop up a lot. It always makes me wonder where the tipping point is for consumers.

          • Ronldbx6

            it really depends how much you really love a particular series,Halo for example. There are die hard Halo fans out there who would gladly buy an Xbox One solely for Halo 5.

          • I guess I can get that. I’m at the point where I’d buy a console if I can, just for NIS games, so fair’s enough there. Though I have had points where there really was only one game on a console that I’d want (Tales of Vesperia on the 360), which I couldn’t justify personally as a reason to purchase.

            I think my point here is more “if you like x-type of game, how is it that many other similar types of games don’t catch your interest?” when it comes to most arguments I see. If it genuinely was one game on a console, then yeah, I can see why a person wouldn’t want to pick it up, but given at least the example game here (Kingdom Hearts), and the number of JRPGs on the 3DS at this point, it does always make me wonder.

            Ah well, at this point, I’m just sorta rambling about it. XD

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            PE Nintendo gives a great examples of why KH3 XBONE will flop.

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I’ve been saying that this will happen. Nomura said it wouldn’t make sense to have all the titles on one console but Dream Drop. But I am also calling re-releases for ps4 Xbox One, be it exact re-releases or an Anthology Pack (more likely of the 2). This year is 2.5, I’m calling 3D for next year, either FFXV or KH Anthology for 2016, the reverse of the 2, dependant on which released, for for 2017, then KH III for 2018. If not that, Anthology for 2016, KH III for 2017.

    My assumption for next/current gen Anthology pack is solely for the comment about why have all on one console minus ‘x’ title, so re-releasing the hd titles onto the same consoles as 3, it really matches the comment (cuz by the time III releases, the entire series would be shared across 2 console generations except for the newest title)

    • Thor Mjolnirs

      Let’s just skip the consoles and go straight for PC, where the games will look and perform at their best.

  • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

    Well if they want to make a HD remake fo Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance then make it for Wii U since that is the only console that have a second touch screen for all those moves in the 3DS version.

    • Ni ~Algidus~

      if 3D ending up getting a HD remake it will be multiplataform. ALso, they can pretty much get rid of these lame mechanics on the second screen for other versions

      • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

        So gameplay wise it would be a downgrade to the 3DS version? I’d rather them just make a KH 3D movie and sell it on the PSN lol.

        • Ni ~Algidus~

          It would actually be better. 3D has easiely the worst combat system in the series. Also, 3D is a direct sequel to KH2 they need to make it playable for the people who didn’t played it since it has Sora and Riku doing the Keyblade master test. I doubt Nomura would be dumb to make a Important game plot wise be movie only

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            We already have 1 movie cutscene game(358/2 days) with another on the way in the form of Re:Coded. It’s bad enough that XBONE(a system that has the worst system selling numbers in history in Japan) gets KH3(which should have been on the WII U) now they want to take KH3D away from us Wii U owners? It is cheaper and less time consuming to make a story only cutscene movie about the events of Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance.

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            Also to sell it via PSN.

          • Ni ~Algidus~

            Re:coded and days are optional. they add to the lore but you can easiely play the numbered games without playing them. but you can’t play Kh3 withoput playing BBS and 3D (you can’t even play 3D without playing BBS because plot reasons)
            Xbone is getting a version because of the west not japan, start using your brain.

            >now they want to take KH3D away from us Wii U owners?
            Blame nintendo for having shitty names ideas and thinking that the “casuals” were going to be hyped for the Wii U. also what a fanboy you are holy shit

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            XBONE users are hardcore type gamers. They like shooters not fantasy jrpg. It was proven already that JRPG’s don’t sell well on XBOX consoles in the states. If KH3 was only for PS4 I wouldn’t mind but putting it on XBONE is just asking for and EPIC FAILURE. That is why I want just a PSN only downloadable movie that shows us all the events(plus a few extras) of Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. You don’t need gameplay to tell a story since most of the story in KH games are told through cutscenes.

          • Ni ~Algidus~

            there’s still a good number of people who will buy the game on Xbone. you liking it or not. it will sell less than on PS4 for sure but will still generate a portion of income for SE.
            >That is why I want just a PSN only downloadable movie
            No, you want a movie only version because you are butthurt that the WiiU is selling like shit and Devs don’t want to make games for it.

            >You don’t need gameplay to tell a story since most of the story in KH games are told through cutscenes
            I already told you why they can’r make this one movie only

            And i’m not going to reply to any of your posts from now

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            How about a bet? If KH3 for XBONE selles surpasses those of SBB for 3DS in Japan in two days I will shut myself up and never speak about the unfair of KH3 on XBONE ever again.

          • Mila

            My friend , Xbox fans aren’t Hardcore.. they are purely Casuals and Dudebros , you are reversing the logic between the hardcore’s and Casuals here

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            Lightning Returns Final Fantasy 13 sold only 200,000 units. Now compare that to the 80 million XB360 installed base and you can see that XBOX fans are more hardcore than you know.

    • Ronldbx6

      no, the reason for the HD remasters were to have them all on one console so that people could catch up on the story before playing KH3. Why would they put one KH game on WiiU and WiiU owners not being able to play KH3? If people want the full KH experience you must have a PS3 and then eventually get a PS4.

      • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

        There is a thing called cutscene only movies to sell on PSN. I don’t want a 3D remake of DDD unless it is for Wii U.

        • LegacyOfWu .

          Welcome to the minority, then.

          Everyone else has been buying KH remakes on PS3 and will want this one on that system, as well. Personally, I don’t care either way as I own every system, but I think you’re hoping for something unrealistic.

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            I am being realistic. If the WII U is impossible then a cutscene movie for the PS3 PSN store. It’s cheaper and less time consuming so that they can concentrate on KH3.

        • Ronldbx6

          I would not buy cutscenes only movies of a KH game over PSN. I’d rather just look them up on the internet.

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            Exactly it would have been better if they release the video of the events in the DDD as a free youtube or anywhere else movie so for those who didn’t buy DDD that they at least have an idea on the story for that game.

          • Ronldbx6

            for “FREE” -_- Come on, we’re talking about Square-Enix here.

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            FREE or not. It would have taken to much effort to replace the two sceen gameplay that DDD was great for. I still enough it even today.

      • Spirit Macardi

        Doesn’t make sense to have it be on PS3 either, since Sony doesn’t do backwards compatibility. So it’ll still be on a completely different console than what KH3 will be on.

        • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

          Plus it will take them to long to revamped the gameplay styles while thinking of a way to replaced the functions that the touch screen had.

  • Ronldbx6

    They should probably do an HD remaster for Dream Drop Distance to help stall the wait for Kingdom Hearts 3. I’d be for it.

    • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

      Unless it was for the WII U then I’d rather them making it into a movie like they did with Coded and 358/2 days.

      • Justin Graham

        Why would you prefer a movie if it was on the Wii U?

        • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

          I rather have the game on WII U, but if comes out for PS3 then I’d rather have it in Movie form like 358/2 days and Re coded.

  • kylehyde

    What about “the princess and the frog”? The Doctor Facilier would be a good Boss

    • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

      Why can’t Japan just take the top ten selling Disney films and put them in KH3? Is it that hard to understand that if a film did great would translate into fans of those films getting the game for nostalgia purposes.

      • I imagine part of the problem is that Disney might not be so willing to have some movies in KH over others, while on the other hand, Disney may push to have specific movies represented that SE can’t really think of ideas for.

        • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

          Right now Disney doesn’t give a hoot about their movies. Right now they care about money and if giving them the best films to be represented in a game will help them gain more money then that is what they’ll do.

  • Izy Shijin

    Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance on VITA please *_* I would love that

    • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

      They are going to do the same thing as 358/2 days and Re coded. Make a story cutscene movie. And probably sell it on PSN for 10 bucks.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Redoing Dream Drop Distance would be completely pointless. Not only is it available on current hardware (and will likely still be playable on whatever the next hardware will be), but it’d automatically be an inferior product due to lacking the second screen features, 3D, AR functionality, etc.

    • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

      If they did it I bet it will be in Movie form like those two games(358/2 days and Re: coded).

      • Ronldbx6

        Yeah that would make sense. They’ve been following that formula a lot now.

        • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

          Plus I don’t want to see a remake 3DS game unless it was on the WII U console.

    • TheManWithPants

      I’m sure they can find some work around for the lack of a touch screen. Like making QTEs, which is essentially what they were, but with button inputs and so on. I have the game and I don’t think it would be that hard for them to do. Besides, having the complete series excluding KH3 on one console would be pretty awesome, I’d say, since Square kept spreading it across different consoles over the years, making it difficult for some people to stay into the series.

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    >Choosing new worlds for Kingdom Hearts III is also proving to be a difficult task for Square Enix.
    Pocahontas, Sword in the Stone, Monsters Inc, Brave, Frozen and a shit ton of other ones
    Also finish this world and make it playable

    >They currently have a great variety of Keyblade transformations, and compare it to Birth by Sleep’s original way of fighting using Keyblades

    This! for me BBS had the best combat system in the whole series

    >According to the Osaka development team, Sora’s mobility is way too high, and it almost felt like he was invincible at around his end-game level.

    As expected, by end game we will be one hitting EVERYTHING with Keyblade Master level Sora

  • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

    KH3 on XBONE is probably the biggest predictable train wreck in history. Square Enix is going to lose a ton of money with this move alone.

    • Ronldbx6

      I don’t think they’ll be losing any money. I’ll still be buying KH3 on PS4 regardless if it’s not exclusive and so will many other KH fans. Love KH.

      • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

        You didn’t see the facts that were proven true about JRPG’s and XBOX consoles. Right now XBOX consoles are for those who love shooter or any other hardcore games. It is going to flop on XBONE I am telling you right now. Super Smash Bros for 3DS sold over 1 million copies in Japan alone and I bet you the the WII U version is going to surpassed those numbers when it releases in November. The mistake that Nintendo made when it came to the Wii U system was that they didn’t bring their big guns at launch. Had SSB came out in the same year as the WII U launch it would have been sold out for months. If Square had done the research they wouldn’t have agreed to make KH3 on XBONE.

        • Ronldbx6

          Of course KH3 will flop on the Xbox One. However it was their own personal decision to try to get their masterpiece out to as many people as they can, just like Final Fantasy 15. To them they see it as more people being able to play the game. I think the clever reason for them releasing the 3DS version of SSB first was to help the 3DS version sell because honestly if the WiiU version came out first people who have both consoles would obliviously choose the WiiU version over the 3DS version. Then again, a lot of people have 3DS’s (especially Japan) versus having a WiiU.

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            First of all the 3DS is selling very well without SSB. Second do you hear yourself? Try to get their masterpiece to as many fans as possible? If they truly thought that then they would have gone with the WII U since it is proven fact that JRPG sold a ton more on Nintendo consoles and handheld then any of the XBOX consoles combined. Did you see how many consoles XBONE sold in the first week of launch? Less than 25,000 units. Combine the poor sales of XBONE in Japan with the poor sales of JRPG’s on any XBOX consoles and you have a version of KH3 that will be the biggest flop since Superman 64.

          • Ronldbx6

            KH3 is being developed on next gen PS4 & Xbox One. I don’t know how much downgrading they’d have to do to make an inferior WiiU version. Some Developers just did not want to take that risks or think it was worth taking. But the WiiU is coming back strong. Maybe more companies will start to invest in the WiiU now.

    • Sol badass

      It still feels weird that its on xbox, but who gives a shit? Its not like it was ever playstation exclusive. Theyve had all those nintendo games too starting from the gameboy advance. And lets be honest. Most people, if not all, are probably gonna get it on ps4 since it pretty much started on playstation

      • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

        You people don’t truly understand the unfairness of it don’t you? KH3 is partly funded from the sales of all the KH Nintendo Handheld games sold so far. Didn’t you think about where that money for those sales are going into?

  • DarkRoxas

    I think that a Final Mix version of KH 3D on the New 3DS would be better… Specially if they launch it overseas.

    Wow, no jokes about zippers and belts regarding Sora’s and Riku’s new outfits. I think this joke finally became old.

    And I really hope that they bring KH Chi overseas, since it’s plot will be connected to KH III’s and I want to play it asdfgs

  • Sol badass

    They should just do the cutscene thing with 3D like they did with 358/2. 3D was basically the set up for whats about to go down in 3. And I cant wait to see what the new outfits will look like. For some reason, I’m hoping sora has a long sleeved jacket xD

  • Michael Kelehan

    Oh, of course there will be a Frozen world.

    • Yeah, let’s not fool ourselves. Literally one of the most successful movies in Japan? If they’re still picking out worlds to put into the game, it’s undeniable that there’s a high chance of it showing up.

  • TheManWithPants

    PS4 Complete HD Collection with both 1.5, 2.5, and 3D all together in one bundle, please!

    • CozyAndWarm

      Wii U too!

  • Kroz

    Sora being so agile that he’s invincible is pretty funny. I guess beef up the enemies or dull down his mobility. I just hope flow motion is a bit more useful in boss fights as apposed to KH3D.

    As for the whole HD KH3D, just release the whole collection on PS4 with KH3D in it. Whether it be as a playable game or a movie I don’t care, wasn’t too big a fan of 3D anyway.

    • CozyAndWarm

      Wii U too!

  • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

    Do you guys know what are the top 5 Kingdom Hearts games in General? The answer should be telling Square Enix where “as many people as possible” excuse should be the focus on. The answer is funny itself.

  • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

    The top 5 selling Kingdom Heart games are(with units sold):
    1. Kingdom Hearts = 5.85 million units
    2. Kingdom Hearts 2 = 4.07 million units
    3. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days = 1.92 million units
    4. Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance = 1.30 million units
    5. Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories(GBA) = 1.85 million units

    And this list is not updated. They probably sold more since these numbers were shown.

    • Just a small word of advice dude: It’s generally considered really obnoxious to keep making entirely new comment threads in one post/article, especially to push the exact same point you’ve been making so far everywhere else in the article.

    • Ferrick

      and the point of this list and making more than one starter comments is?

      • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

        The creators of Epic Mickey went bankrupt because Epic Mickey 2 totally flopped on PS3 and XB360.

        • Ferrick

          what

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            Exactly as I said BANKRUPT. Epic Mickey 2 did so bad on the PS3 and XB360 that the company had to file bankruptcy.

          • Ferrick

            Hast thou been tripping?

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            Nope I checked and the creators themselves said they didn’t want to make Epic Mickey 2 for PS3 and XB360. Don’t believe me look for yourselves. You can find it on any site that has the information.

          • Ferrick

            What. Are. You. Talking. About.

    • Gority

      Such a Wii U fanboy. Below you make the point:

      “You people don’t truly understand the unfairness of it don’t you? KH3 is partly funded from the sales of all the KH Nintendo Handheld games sold so far.”
      You don’t seem to care that the series was originally only on a Sony console, and then the spinoffs, which would have been funded by KH1 and KH2 on a Sony platform, moving to a Nintendo platform. You only seem to care that KH3 is going to XB1 and not to Wii U. Fact of the matter is, XB1 and PS4 are very similar systems, and even though the XB1 will only sell a fraction of what it does on PS4, they will still make money off of it. A numbered KH has never been on a Nintendo console, why would you expect that to change now? Because you feel entitled to it since you spent money on the handheld spinoffs? Please. How do you think people felt who didn’t want to buy a new handheld to continue the KH story after playing KH1 and KH2 on Playstation 2? You aren’t entitled to anything.

      • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

        So Microsoft never invested in any of the Kingdom Heart game at all. If Microsoft released a KH game during the life of the previous XBOX consoles I wouldn’t be this pissed off. It’s one thing to say “We would like to share this masterpiece with as many fans as possible” then to totally ignore 40% of your income to make a KH game on a console that is destined to be a train wreck waiting to happen. The sales don’t lie. Combine the fact of the poor sales for XBONE in Japan with the poor sales of JRPG’s in general and you have the makings for a truly EPIC FAILURE of a game.

        • Gority

          Yes, but by your logic, they never would have released chain of memories, or 3D, or 358/2 days, because Nintendo never released KH1 and KH2. But you know what, because you love Nintendo, it’s okay for them to do it going to a Nintendo console, but not okay for them to do it going to the X1.

          • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

            And guess what your opinion is worth less than 1% of the JRPG sales for any XBOX consoles. This should be a sacred rule of videogames “JRPG and Microsoft should never EVER be mixed up in any way,shape or form”.

          • Gority

            Dude, I don’t own an X1. I own a PS4 and a Wii U. I don’t care what games come out for the X1. But I just proved your biasness for the Wii U. You only see things one way even when I prove you are contradicting yourself. Then you call it an opinion, which it wasn’t. I applied your own logic to the KH series moving from Sony consoles to Nintendo handhelds, which I just find incredibly ironic. Everybody reading your comments knows you’re a fanboy and you are not helping your point at all.

          • Zero_Destiny

            Really? This blatant fan boy-ism console warring is enough for banning right here and now. But together with how you conducted yourself, it only makes it worst. Banned.

        • Dexterino

          Naruto you are really in the wrong place to be complaining…. How about you go to Japan and get a chair in the roundtable to discuss how poorly they’re running their business and game?

      • CozyAndWarm

        By your logic, every Final Fantasy, Castlevania, and Metal Gear game should be exclusive to Nintendo systems, because that’s where the series started.

    • Dexterino

      Your point is???

  • CozyAndWarm

    I’d totally give KH3D a replay on Wii U. But since Square seems so platinum butthurt about making anything for the system, we’ll see if that pans out.

    • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

      KH3 on XBONE is going to flop BIG TIME. Statistically it was proven fact that JRPG’s sold very poorly on XBOX consoles. The only JRPG game that sold very well on an XBOX console was Final Fantasy 13 with over 2 million units sold.

      • Rv

        It doesn’t really matter, it doesn’t cost much to port between ps4/xboxone. Its always Nintendo’s wonky hardware that makes porting a nightmare. And the console being weaker than the other two would hold the game back for everyone (features, length, graphics; something would suffer).

        • Ducked

          The Xbox One is only 31% more powerful than Wii U.

        • CozyAndWarm

          “And the console being weaker than the other two would hold the game back for everyone ”

          Didn’t stop Square from fawning all over the PS2 and putting the main series on it originally…

          And if you’re worried about the game being held back by hardware, why on earth aren’t you suggesting they be made as PC exclusives?

  • HerosLight

    If they really do go with KH 3D HD, they better add some more content than KH2 FM.

    TWEWY cast as partners in Traverse Town maybe?

    PS: TWEWY sequel never.

  • Niermyico

    “Choosing new worlds for Kingdom Hearts III is also proving to be a difficult task for Square Enix.”

    Tresure Planet and Atlantis should be like the top 2 up there in the list! Come on, SE!

    • T-X

      Yes! Plus adding FF12 Montblanc to Coleseum world please!!

    • Atlantis and Treasure Planet really should have been in 2, to be honest. They fit more so than Pirates and I like PotC.

      Also; Black Cauldron.

      I’m not going to give up hope.

  • harmonyworld

    Go for it yo!
    I just got KH3D today!
    I’d totally get an HD remaster! :3

  • TaintedSeraph

    “About KINGDOM HEARTS 3D, concerning the HD version, there are no plans for it to make the transition.” Sounds like Siliconera got a bit of information wrong, eh?

  • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

    Guess what I took in the calculation of how many XBOX consoles owner buy JRPG’s and do you know the final results? With the install base for the XB360 all JRPG’s sold with a percentage of 0.78125%. Does this % not tell you that out of 80 million 360 owners less then 1% of them buy JRPG’s. Congratulations on those that defended SE for putting KH on the XBONE. You now know that your opinion are worth less then 1% of the JRPG fandom. Congratulations!!

    • Ferrick

      OMG, You’re so right! You made a really good point by posting this Fact more than once in many other instance! You should’ve worked for SE so they know what they’re doing! /sarcasm

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      just curious, has there ever been Disney game on Xbox/360/One? that should be counted into factor as well, since that’s what makes KH more popular than usual JRPG in the first place

      • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

        Epic Mickey 2 one XB360. And because of the sales the creators had to file for bankruptcy.

    • Landale

      Time for you to calm down. You’re just repeating yourself in excess, and frankly you haven’t even provided much in the way of evidence for your claims to be this obsessive about it.

    • Eder García

      someone! translate this into Japanese and send it to Squarenix, ATLUS and the rest of Japanese companies that thinks the western audience buys JRPGs on XBOX only!!

  • Why would you do this just looking at this gives me a damn headache

  • Vallen

    Just put 1.5 and 2.5 and 3D HD all on one ps4 collection…

    • Dexterino

      Put it also for Xbox One. Too. :D

      • ThatKidMax

        dont get crazy

        • Ducked

          “I can’t wait to buy Kingdom Hearts 3 on Xbox One!” said no one ever.

    • Ducked

      That be very nice.

    • Bank Alexander

      I would pay hundreds.

    • CozyAndWarm

      Why not Wii U?

  • Eder García

    will Nintendo home consoles finally get a KH game?

    • Guest

      They should multi platform release.

  • Dexterino

    Hahahahaha that be badass.

  • Well hell they might as well do KH 3D HD and pop Re:X [chi] in it too because there is tiny storybits that are hella relevant that the west kinda shouldn’t miss. *coughcough*Foretellers*coughcough*

    • GoldLiger(SKLM Naruto V2)

      If they make a movie out of two of them I will accept it.

  • i would love an hd release for kh 3d since i haven’t played it yet.

  • axemtitanium

    In before Kingdom Hearts 3.5 HD Remix comes out before Kingdom Hearts 3.

    • Ferrick

      in before KH 4 comes out before KH3

  • Prinny Dood

    You guys should have asked for kh hd for the ps vita dood! Please!><

  • They need to do two things to encourage me to buy it again: Add new content and/or get rid of the drop mechanic. Otherwise, I’m not really interested. KH3D was good, but I feel like 1 and 2 are better and more worth playing again.

    • Anime10121

      The drop mechanic definitely aint returning, it was a mechanic for DDD only, and thats because it was based on a dream. Now whether the game will be 100% Sora or multiple characters has yet to be announced, but rest (pun intended ;) ) assured, drops aint coming back :P

      • Oh I know it’s not coming back for future games. My comment was actually aimed at a possible HD release for Dream Drop Distance. It’s not really that bad and it was manageable, but I just don’t like having to go in my menu constantly to use potions to keep my gauge from falling the whole way.

        • Anime10121

          My bad, read your comment COMPLETELY wrong :P

          But unfortunately with it being so tied into the games mechanics, I doubt there’d be a way to remove it for the remaster… I disliked it as well, even if like you said, it was completely manageable, I felt character switching could have been handled a better way.

          But oh well, it wasnt bad enough that I wouldnt go back for a console version of the game! I’ve only played 3D once, and thats because there’s no way for me to play it on the big screen… I went FAR out of my way and payed way more than I should have to play BBS on the my TV, but I loved every second of it, so hopefully the same will apply here :P

    • Pin Master

      Sorry to break it to you but they won’t get rid of the Drop mechanic. Is one of the reasons why is call Dream Drop Distance. And I actually like the Drop mechanic.

  • T-X

    Bundle KH3D remaster with KHx for the New 3DS/WiiU/PS4/Vita and we’ll all be golden.

  • Fen Y

    remaster remake rerelease…

    …cool, cool, but how about something new ?

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    lol I’d never play KH3D again. Ever.
    it was hard enough getting motivated to finish it once.

    • Ducked

      Why? I know the dialog was weak…

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        Like nothing happens for 90% of the game Besides cryptic nonsense and the dream eater stuff was so annoying, especially in harder difficulties.

        • Ducked

          Well you’re right about that. I hated the dream eaters stuff as well. I did really like the Fantasia world, and the Three Muskateers world too. But the story really didn’t pick up until the end. Still, it had some interest moments before.

          • FitzpatrickPhillips

            I didn’t say it was hard. I said the whole dream eater thing got annoying, especially on harder difficulties. That said, in the previous KH games you would travel the worlds seeing Disney characters well embedded into the KH story. 3D didn’t have this. 90% of the game was just Disney filler with no soul and would end with some cryptic nonsense and a short cutscene that explained nothing. Nothing made sense or got any focus until the very end when things got interesting. The Three Muskateers world was probably the only charming one.

          • Ducked

            I didn’t say that you said it was hard. I said I hated it. The dream eaters were annoying, and pointless.

          • Vash bane

            wow…I’m losing motivation to even buy the game now. I kinda play KH for the story (even tho its confusing to me since I didn’t play any of the spin offs. only the main 2 games)

          • Anime10121

            The last world is the only one that REALLY matters for both Sora and Riku as far as the series as a whole is concerned, and its a WHOLE LOT of story to swollow, but the rest of the game is still fun, and full of the first KH type plot progression.

            Though I didnt care for the dream eater aspect either, they are making it sound far worse than what it is :/

    • Pin Master

      Hard getting motivated? Man Dream Drop Distance is great game. And what do you mean nothing happens 90% of game? Everything was happening in the game.

  • cloudcaelum

    Vita need KH collection, hope we can see someday…

    • Ric Vazquez

      We can only hope…

  • Snorlaxation

    Gahh. I just bought (finally) Dream Drop Dis-gust (it really wasn’t that horrible though). I’m not putting out money on buying a new version of it… probably.

    As for Chi, i’ll just stick to watching Everglow’s videosof it on his Youtube account.

    As for all the interesting info about the KH3, well,… cool.

    I was hoping we’d at least get to hear something about the fighting mechanics or at least see what their new outfits would look like, or Kairi’s, but I guess we’ll just have to keep on waiting. :(

    • Göran Isacson

      Oh, someone’s doing a “Let’s Play” of Chi? A question before I go off to look- do they translate the story bits in some way so we know what’s going on, and IF they do is the story interesting or worth checking out? That’s pretty much the only thing I want to know if I’m missing from Chi.

        He has in fact helped with the translating and posting of said translations on the video, and it currently seems to be finished, as in, all the Chi videos are now up. I personally don’t know much about the story, since I’ve only watched the first vid, and haven’t had time for much more lately. Apparently it is gonna be connected to the main plot, but we’ll see.

    Kingdom Hearts III should be available for Wii U.

    Also, how is Dream Drop Distance’s gameplay going to work without a second screen? I see it be easier to remaster it on Wii U.

    • exrazer

      I think that’s what they’ll do.

    • Anesia Hunter

      did you forget about what they did to TWEWY? that was originally for the DS and then they moved it to iOS and android and removed the need for the 2nd screen.

      • Ducked

        Yes, but for the dream eaters it be much easier to have the Gamepad. Plus the controls are nearly identical.

    • Sentinel

      I’d certainly like to see that, given that the Wii U isn’t going to get KH3. Would be nice though if all 3 major consoles were getting KH3.

    • vanishmantle

      I eeallu hope SE gives the Wii U some love by brining KH to it as well. I mean xb1 gets it but xbox never had a kh game… EVER. Yet Nintendo has had half the series and literally no love for hd remakes.

      • Ducked

        Couldn’t agree more.

    • kthanxyousuck

      I agree, since it’s coming to Xbox, they really should make it a trifecta.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Make it happen SE, as long as it does not slow the development of KH3

  • Aunna Terrell

    Your link to Game Jouhou doesn’t work. ^^ It leads to a “Page not found” for here.

  • Rabbit

    Do it and then never spread your game thin across gaming platforms again, alright SE? You can always port it of course, but that whole “each device gets an exclusive KH game” phase was really annoying.

    • It was the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen from a gaming company. Granted, if you have every system, you can get it all and still get the ‘full story’ O_o.

      But if you just want the story that actually matters, then PS2 and PSP we’re all you really needed that were relevant: 1, 2 and BBS which kinda suffered a bit on the handheld, but 2.5 should fix that real soon for us here in the states.

      • kthanxyousuck

        Actually, KH3 starts where 3D ends so you kind of need that game for the full story.

  • Vash bane

    …sora gets godly toward end level oh heck ya…but wait he’s going to get nefed already XD

    jokes aside tho what the hecks a KHX chi? some kind of book?
    (I looked up in a bit)

    so 3D too eh? I was going to get it eventually (but keep forgetting lol)

    the transforming keyblade thing has me really interested

    • chronocide

      As far as I remember, X was a Japan only browser game so I guess they’re trying to release whatever info came out in that game so KH3 makes sense to the western market.

  • artemisthemp

    It would be smart to put Dream Drop Distance on PlayStation so, people who buy Kingdom Heart knows what happen between KH2 and KH3

    • CozyAndWarm

      Or they could just play the game…

      • artemisthemp

        Never buy a expensive system for 1 game or you end up hating it.

  • JustJam

    I own a 3DS and I still haven’t bought KH 3D yet lol…

  • Cyril Murasakitsuyukusa

    Hopefully, it will be released for PS3 or Vita, or maybe for both of them.

  • Göran Isacson

    The engine has problems, but don’t worry- we are on point with designing their new outfits!

    Okay I’m being facetious now. I know. I’m sorry. At any rate- HD DDD would be neat, if only because I think it sets up some pretty important stuff… or at least I hope so. If it turns out none of the enemies of that game will be coming back and it will be all about the “Lost Masters” being opponents, I will be so miffed. Though I guess they did give us Lea, so that is an important thing that happened.

  • kthanxyousuck

    I don’t really understand why 3D wasn’t included in the 2.5 remix. Even if it was just story elements.

    • BrianRommel

      The coproducer can’t remember his name (not nomura-san) stated that the game was still fairly new (its the only one that is for a current system). There’s some speculation that Nintendo may have a timed exclusive on it. Plus if its worth doing I’d rather it be playable and that poses a tweaked as the game was designed for the 3ds severs features would have to be tweaked or removed. The biggest thing is the touch controls which are a big part of the game would have to be reworked.
