Nomura: New Kingdom Hearts announcement soon

Kingdom Hearts 3D director does his thing.

Square Enix just launched Kingdom Hearts 3D in Japan last month, but it’s already planning a new Kingdom Hearts announcement for the near future.

An interview with game director Tetsuya Nomura in the newly released Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance Ultimania book reveals the team has already begun making movements on the next game in the series, and should be able to make an announcement some time soon.

Whatever it is, it’s not Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep 2. Nomura confirmed “there are currently no plans” for a sequel, nor are there plans for a Final Mix of Kingdom Hearts 3D.

Thanks, FF-Reunion.

    Better be a stupid Hd pack of ALL of them,handheld ones included.

  • Byronic Hero

    More Kingdom Hearts is always good. Hope this next one is on either Wii U or a current generation console. I really don’t want to have to buy a vita for the next one.

    • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

      @Byronic Hero: If its going to be on a consoles it better be ps3,I got a ps3 because its where kh has always been -_- I dont want to buy a wii u or vita just for KH

  • vertical09

    I’m betting on either two things.
    Kingdom hearts 3
    A kingdom hearts combining all the MAIN KH games into 1 disc hopefully re-mastered into HD for the PS3 .

    I’m betting on KH3 more though since i heard before (i think here) that the next KH after 3D was going to be one for the consoles or something like that, cant exactly remember =P

    333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333. or 1 HD. couldn’t care much about the others. >.<

  • Kingdom Hearts III for PS3, please. The long wait is totally killing me…

    • Noctionus

      @Chaos Raiden: Announcement in 2012 and to be released for PS4 next six years!.

  • FinalFantasy_fangirl

    I’ve been thinking SE should release all KH games in one before KH3. I have to say Im a bit sad he says its not Birth By Sleep. I really loved the cast.

  • yurixtaka

    I’m a kingdom hearts fan so i don’t really care for what console they release it or which kingdom hearts they release as long as it gets the u.s i’m fine with it no matter how much money i have to waste

  • KingOptimus111

    If its not Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Volume 2 then what is it?

  • Zero

    I’m hoping it’s KH 3. No, seriously! If they announce 3 for PS3/360, that tells us two things.

    The first is obvious, KH 3! The other would be that Versus is nearing completion, and the new engine must be ready to go.

    If this isn’t going to be a new game, I hope it’s an HD collection for PS3/360.

    Obviously both KH 1 and 2 should be included, but I would like to see them include an HD version of BBS as well. (I mentioned this before, just like they did with MGS HD collection.)

  • dmysta3000

    So we’ll most likely hear something new by E3? Nice!

    • anime10121

      @dmysta3000: Nah not at E3 as KH 3D wont be released yet in America. They wont tease the next game in America when the latest hasnt seen a release yet. More than likely what he’s teasing is announcements at TGS later this year (soon for Square means at least a half a year).

  • DjangoRaijin

    No 360 I’m not trying to be an ass but I think putting kingdom hearts on all these other systems was a horrible idea keep it on the Sony and now Nintendo systems.

    • Zero


      I can relate. I find it hard to keep up with all of these games coming out on different systems. Portables or consoles, whatever.

      The thing is, this is the era of multi-platform games, just about everything from a 3rd party publisher is going to be on multiple systems.

      It might not happen with KH, but it wouldn’t surprise me at all, in fact I expect it to happen. These days, it’s all about money.

      • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

        @Zero: Sad really,single plat games do su=o much good for the industry

  • Dystopiq

    Let the milking begin, SE.

  • hush404

    Every time I see “Nomura” I sigh as I know it’s not VSXIII info :(

  • Skelter

    The only alternative that I’m seeing other than an HD collection and Kingdom Hearts 3 is a game based solely on Kairi becoming adept with the blade. If that happens, I will faint.

  • RyoonZ

    Ha! Nomura teasing again, I too bet it’ll be HD Kingdom Hearts but it won’t be collection they will make them separately.

  • xMCXx

    Birth by Sleep 2? How would that make any sense?
    It’s most likely KH3, finally! It better be on PS3 or PS4 or whatever.

  • This mean they are done with FFXIII Versus

  • FaithlessMr

    Awesome, looking forward to it :)

  • vertical09

    AzureFlame24: Or just getting started =P

  • Jackle

    When I saw the headline, I immediately thought of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep 2 or KH 3DS Final Mix….until, of course, I read the article, lol. Anyway, I love KH, so the more there is of the franchise, the happier I become. As the majority has stated, I hope it’s a HD collection! :)
