    Tetsuya Nomura Discusses Kingdom Hearts III
    "Not currently possible"
    [​IMG]

    With its prequels and side stories, the Kingdom Hearts franchise has kept followers of the series engaged for years. Fans have anticipated the next big title in the franchise for some time: Kingdom Hearts III (KH III) . In a recent interview, Tetsuya Nomura discusses life, his full schedule of projects, and notably what his plans are for KH III.

    Nomura-san commented on the current challenges he faces developing KH III:

    “For any sequel of the mainstream storyline of the Kingdom Hearts series, that would be Kingdom Hearts III”

    He added:

    “But the problem is that the opportunity of developing the sequel is not currently [possible]. The team is busy, I am busy.”

    Even with his busy schedule, KH III is still something he wants to do and is preparing for. Nomura-san had this to say about his thoughts on the next chapter in the storyline:

    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.

    With the game’s concept phase being in sight, it leads to the question: When can we expect it? When asked if we would see it on the current generation of consoles, he gave this revelation:

    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.

    Nomura-san is a busy man, even stating he had to “sacrifice my private time, my marriage, my family time” to stay on top of all his current projects. At least KH III is one of those projects. No matter how long it takes, it will be worth the wait.[/p]

    Been waiting to here news about this game for a while now I am actually HAPPY to start here something about KH3, But game making is serious business and it sounds so time consuming.

    So close and yet so far away.
    Rawr! Yes!

    And it's good if they're gonna spend time on it, it will be of the same quality of previous games, unless something unexpected happens. [​IMG]

    well we've known it was inevitable. The story left off at a stand still
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    But these side stories are either hit or miss. 358, While NICE to get insight on, was completely un-needed. It was nothing but missions with an hour at most of needed dialogue and story.

    as for BBS, THAT was a proper story builder. Everything made more sense after that game.
    As for Coded, I've read the story, It seems like it's gonna be another CoM/358 Filler kinda story.

    As for Kingdom Hearts 3D, That's gonna be another HUGE story builder. I almost was convinced IT was KH3, cause of the 3 being in the title and all, and Nomura loving to hide things like that in plain sight. But all in all, this is exciting.

    I just hope once it's said and done, Nomura won't pull a Final Fantasy and re-boot the series with new characters. That would just kill me ~.~

    Now everyone can stop addressing Kingdom Hearts III as if it's been in development for years.

    Lol, I really thought KH III would release this year, why? KH I released in 2002 (fifa world cup 2002) then KH II in 2006 (again fifa world cup)...but now here in 2010, no KH III BUT a KH title we thought was KH III released - BbS...(admit it, we all thought back in 2007 after seeing the birth by sleep trailer, that it's KH III)

    I don't like how he said "it's possible" that the game might be released on ps3. Sony said they have a 10 year plan to support the PS3. And it's only "possible?"

    That's like saying it's possible to release it on PS2.

    I don't know how I feel about this.

    HEY!! What the heck is wrong people these days. The amount of work he is doing is just incredible. But also sacrificing his FAMILY TIME and his PRIVATE LIFE, he should get a seriously LONG ASS break. When I read comments such as:

    All I see is arrogance and greed. I don't think hes some slave to develop games for people in the world. Not only that but it is hard to even write up a solid story for a follow up, or anything else for that matter. HE IS ALSO A HUMAN BEING !

    No it didn't. Some stuff, yes, but the X-blade and Terra possessing Xehanort things weren't really needed, were they?
