Tetsuya Nomura: "It's About Time 'Kingdom Hearts' Came Back to Consoles"

Square/Disney crossover was last seen on consoles with 2005's "Kingdom Hearts II"

While I'm a huge proponent of handheld gaming and all the one-of-a-kind experiences it offers, there are just some titles that, good as they are on handheld, belong on consoles. I feel Kingdom Hearts is one of those games, bringing Square-Enix and Disney together in an unexpectedly enjoyable union.

 

Series design lead and producer Tetsuya Nomura has a similar train of thought in an interview with Game Informer:

 

"The PS Vita is definitely a powerful device that is very interesting, but because of its 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. I also feel that it's about time that Kingdom Hearts should go back to being on a console.

 

"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 3D: Dream Drop Distance launches on July 31st in the US, so we only have a short wait before we see what's coming next. Do you think the mysterious video at the end of Kingdom Hearts II will factor into this?
