Kingdom Hearts 3 May be Coming Sooner Than You Think...

by VGChartz Staff, posted on 05 February 2010 / 5,749 Views

First Aonuma reveals lots of Zelda Wii details, then Square Enix talks about working on 5 unannounced titles, and finally Kingdom Hearts' Father slips two key details that may just reveal what he has in store for fans this year... this latest edition of Famitsu magazine has been nothing but glorious.

This time, like on many other times, Nomura's interview was about Kingdom Hearts - he talked about Sora's character, Kingdom Hearts: BBS, and... Kingdom Hearts 3.

In fact, he let these two very key details slip:

- Nomura believes Birth By Sleep shows that the Kingdom Hearts Osaka dev team has similar ability to create a quality KH title
- Kingdom Hearts 3 will be implemented as soon as possible

Essentially, this means that KH3 could start its' presumably long cycle of development by the team that has done KH: BBS - they're free of work (as far as we know) and they've shown that they can create a great KH title. Couple that knowledge with the fact that he wants to begin work on KH3 ASAP, and you've got yourself a sequel.

Big thanks to Nintendo Everything.

Colonel-Killzone (on 07 February 2010)

But idc anymore last post im making on here because end of the day we will keep disagreeing. Whatever console it goes on it goes on moaning and crying here won't solve anything so you guys believe what you want and i will believe what i want.


Colonel-Killzone (on 07 February 2010)

@keptoknight Listen kid i will debate about this anymore cause business wise you look at recent news of the decline in nintendo games for the system out of that almost 70million userbase how many games that aren't nintendo own ip that sell good ? This whole kingdom hearts on the wii started 3 years ago when the ps3 sales was like 12million userbase now its at almost 32mil. And im guessing kingdom hearts 3 will be out maybe 2012 and ps3 consoles will rise way better then what it is now all because you have the biggest user base on the market DOES NOT MEAN GAMES WILL SELL WELL don't believe me go check your charts for nintendo wii. I believe this game will be better on the ps3 my opinion since blueray can make it a longer game in general but its w.e i already know what you guys will say blueray isnt this blah blah blah lol. You guys believe what you want that it will be on wii.


KeptoKnight (on 07 February 2010)

@Colonel-Killzone says: you guys are acting like some nintendo fanatics. No as a matter of fact were not acting like Nintendo fanatics. And we are definitely not nintendo fanboys. @Colonel-Killzone says: FIXED---> "lol are you stupid or just blind kingdom hearts can be for hardcore gamers also there are tons of people on the ps3 AND WII who bought the consoles assuming it will be developed for them" I have all three consoles. Never played KH games, nevertheless business wise, releasing on the Wii will be an unavoidable move-set.


Colonel-Killzone (on 07 February 2010)

@thetonestarr Dude you really need to just stop the flamebait already calling me a fanboy when nobody is bringing any stupid console war in here if anything you guys are acting like some nintendo fanatics. How do we even know if epic mickey will be a good game for all we know it could flop thats assuming a bit much. The market isn't big enough lol are you stupid or just blind kingdom hearts can be for hardcore gamers also there are tons of people on the ps3 who bought the ps3 assuming it will be on the console. Don't start the childish throwing the fanboy crap in here. Like i said before nomura stated whatever console that kingdom hearts 3 is best suited for it it has nothing to do with sales how about you look at the interview. @atma998 how doesn't it make sense thats where the fanbase is thats like putting dragon quest on the ps3 and the fanbase is on the wii lol.


atma998 (on 07 February 2010)

@Colonel-Killzone I think you're the funny one here to think that KH3 have better chance to be on PS3 than Wii. It just doesnt make any sense. Instead you should try to accept the reality...


KeptoKnight (on 07 February 2010)

Thank You thetonestarr says: "Besides the plethora of better sales potential reasons, it also has going for it the fact that the Wii will have Epic Mickey beforehand. That will attract the enormous numbers of Disney/Mickey fans out there to come into Wii gaming/pay attention to Disney games. Then KH3 will come out and they'll be all, "Oh snap! Here's another cool Disney game! WANT!"" Thank You thetonestarr says:


thetonestarr (on 07 February 2010)

It's almost assuredly going to be a Wii exclusive. Mr. Sony-Fanboy below just refuses to accept reality. Besides the plethora of better sales potential reasons, it also has going for it the fact that the Wii will have Epic Mickey beforehand. That will attract the enormous numbers of Disney/Mickey fans out there to come into Wii gaming/pay attention to Disney games. Then KH3 will come out and they'll be all, "Oh snap! Here's another cool Disney game! WANT!" It's sheer genius in marketing. They'd be idiots to release it on the PS3 and divide their market. The "hardcore RPG" gamer market and the "Final Fantasy gamer" market both aren't sufficient to support KH3 the way Square would want them to. So you go for the OTHER market that KH3 will interest. All THOSE gamers will be on the Wii.


Colonel-Killzone (on 07 February 2010)

@keptoknight Like i said before kepto kingdom hearts 3 will most likely be on the ps3 so you can tell yourself w.e makes you sleep at night that it will come to the wii. If you think because the wii has a better chance of getting kingdom hearts 3 then the PS3 you are funny as hell lol.


Soriku (on 07 February 2010)

@Colonel So many games switched platforms this gen...DQ went to the DS and now the Wii, MH console titles went from the PS2 to the Wii, Fatal Frame went from PS2/Xbox to the Wii, FF XIII went to the 360 (though it's still on the PS3), Star Ocean came to the 360 first, etc. That doesn't really matter...


Colonel-Killzone (on 07 February 2010)

@keptoknight Sigh like i said before the ps3 would most likely get the game considering the first 2 games was on the ps2. No they don't owe anything to sony but it would make sense to put it on the ps3 and i could care less if they made another version for the wii as long as its on the ps3 i could care less. If this was on the wii exclusive like some people are saying here it would be a smack to the face to the fans of the series but who knows like i said before nomura stated whichever console it goes on will be one that will be best suited for the game so expect this game to be exclusive if anything i just don't know which of the 3 it will be on.


Cueil (on 07 February 2010)

It would be retarded to have it be PS3 exclusive considering the choke hold the 360 has over the PS3 in the US


Nybbas (on 07 February 2010)

I really see if anything, Wii getting another spinoff KH game, while KH3 comes out on ps3, or maybe even multiplat, judging by the way "exclusives" have been going. I feel for a game like this, if they did put it onto the PS3, they could have a lot more going on in the battles, and just in scope of the game compared to the Wii. Not just purely from a graphics point of view, but gameplay as well. With that said, if it comes out to be announced for the Wii, I wont see it as that much of a shocker, and like stats said, thats a guaranteed shorter delivery time than if it was developed on the ps3 : P


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

Colonel-Killzone says:: FROM http://wii.kombo.com/article.php?artid=14438 "Of further interest is that Nomura says the reason work began on Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days is due to Nintendo coming to him and asking for a Kingdom Hearts game for the NINTENDO DS. No smack with a fact for the Wii......


Xen (on 06 February 2010)

DS2? Why... DS2? :P


Cheebee (on 06 February 2010)

Well if they haven't even started I wouldn't expect it anytime soon. XD Maybe it'll be a DS2 launch title.


GuiltySpartan77 (on 06 February 2010)

it could sell 7-8 million if it was on the ps3 wii and xbox 360 but just one console not likely


Soriku (on 06 February 2010)

@web Uh...how was saying most people would think a single KH game can sell 7-8 mil is trolling?


Colonel-Killzone (on 06 February 2010)

@keptoknight sigh wow here goes the interview and for god sakes end the debate right here and now after you read this interview. http://wii.kombo.com/article.php?artid=14438


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

@Colonel-Killzone says: "The only reason why kingdom hearts ever hit nintendo was because nintendo came to them and said we want a kingdom hearts game." LoL SOURCES PLEASE: I be here waiting.


Colonel-Killzone (on 06 February 2010)

@KeptoKnight The only reason why kingdom hearts ever hit nintendo was because nintendo came to them and said we want a kingdom hearts game. Anyway idc anymore to debate about this. Nomura said himself whatever console suits best for the game thats where it will go so everyone will wait and see what platform it will be on.


Lyrikalstylez (on 06 February 2010)

This game will be multi, I mean Why not make the game on 360 also considering the series sold the most to western gamers and 360 seems to have a huge install base in that area which only means huge sales!! Plus I think the wii will recieve an entirely new inferior version of the game ala Dead Space:Extraction!


webondd007 (on 06 February 2010)

because from reading these discussions you do not necessarily need to "DEVOTE," to mass market.....Advertisements, Disney World, Gamestops ? lol


webondd007 (on 06 February 2010)

LOL at the Back to back comments on this board. Soriku says: "Most sensible people who know a single KH can't sell that much..." Wtf that suppose to mean....you are just trolling. @Kepto: What time of collaboration you are referring to? Just curious


Soriku (on 06 February 2010)

Most sensible people who know a single KH can't sell that much...


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

Really?.... Where are your sources? Most people would say you be right? Which kinds?


Soriku (on 06 February 2010)

It's my opinion...but most people would say I'd be right. KH doesn't have a 7-8 mil sale appeal. But you're free to think whatever...


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

Soriku says: if that ridiculous, that's is your opinion. "your proposed to KH2" - correction Kh3


Soriku (on 06 February 2010)

@Stats Fair enough to me :) @Kepto OK but that's just ridiculous. Disney and Square Enix don't have some devotion to Nintendo that they'd all collaborate on a KH game's marketing appeal. Disney and SE know what they're doing just fine. I really doubt putting Nintendo into the fix would suddenly make the game sell another 4-5 mil+ (this is me comparing the 7-8 mil your proposed to KH2. KH1 is too far back to consider its sales.)


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

Soriku says:"KH3 wouldn't sell 7-8 mil on the Wii, or elsewhere for that matter. KH games don't have that kind of appeal." Business its Business we do not know the tight collaboration Disney, Nintendo and Square will hold. This Project can lead to a much bigger sales than we think. So set aside those kinds of assumptions.


Stats87 (on 06 February 2010)

@ Soriku Yeah Epic Mickey is my tie-over until KH3 finally hits. =P The whole concept of the game sounds great and using older characters should make for a splendid experience. I'm really excited to see what classic characters are in the game. I borrowed my friends DS and beat 358/2 days. It was fun, but it was never a story I was really interested in. So it did little to satiate my "Kingdom Hearts Hunger". However, I do believe BBS should help, since that story intrigues me much more. Just to book-end the previous. I don't doubt that a Wii version would outsell a PS3 version. I just don't think it would be a significant difference. Like I said, HD is my preference, but I'm not gonna be upset if it's not there. Heck, a Wii version means less development time! =D


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

Stats87 says: it's largely younger kids buying it, who therefore have Wii's and as a result means the Wii will sell the most software. For these younger kids," nobody said its target audience are JUST the younger kids..... "it is obvious, it cannot be compared to the userbase of the Wii console that consists a VATRIETY of casual gamers such as the adolescence, parents, and grandparents.


Stats87 (on 06 February 2010)

I'm discussing that notion and disagreeing with it, it just wasn't phrased the best. Look, there is no use to engage in this any further. We are not going to convince each other and change minds. ;) Let's just wait and see and if it does come out on Wii (which actually is my guess) then we can see how much it sells. Then we'll know who is right or wrong. =)


Soriku (on 06 February 2010)

@Kepto KH3 wouldn't sell 7-8 mil on the Wii, or elsewhere for that matter. KH games don't have that kind of appeal. It's a mainstream game but not super mainstream 7-8 mil would put it higher than most FF games and while KH is bigger than FF in the Americas, it isn't anywhere else.


Soriku (on 06 February 2010)

@Stats Well for the record Nomura put KH: CoM on the GBA due to ids wanting it there and he also speaks about kids in some of his old interviews way back. So kids are a factor too. But anyway there's a lot of older people on the Wii who would buy KH. They're not putting Epic MIckey on the Wii for nothing. That game is a total throwback to the old-time Disney classics!


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

Stats87 says: "I'm simply discussing the notion that putting it on the Wii will lead to much higher sales." ummm so can you explain why you posted this? "I highly doubt KH3 would sell "7M - 8M minimum" on the Wii, when previous games sold 5.5M and 3.8M on the PS2."


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

@ RAFICHAMP Says: "I bet you anything Sony has a better relationship with Disney then Nintendo." Where are your sources, or you just gonna sit there an troll? Disney forms a Nintendo-exclusive video game studio - http://www.afterdawn.com/news/archive/8103.cfm RAFICHAMP says "listen all I am saying is, make a HD version of KH3 for PS3, and a kiddie version for Wii, everyone wins." Yeah you must be in the moon...As if its that easy to create for all consoles at once.


Stats87 (on 06 February 2010)

I'm not definitively buying the "Kingdom Hearts audience is on the Wii" argument. The fact is, we don't know the breakdown of each and every person who bought the game. It's just an assumption that since it is Disney, it's largely younger kids buying it, who therefore have Wii's and as a result means the Wii will sell the most software. For these younger kids, it's largely parents buying their games and I don't think KH would be on their radar. I truly believe that a lot of KH's popularity stems from older people who grew up on the movies (especially the 90's renaissance) and indulge their childhood nostalgia in the form of an awesome game. Disney + Square Enix + Final Fantasy = Great sales regardless of platform. I can play the game no matter what console it comes out on. It's not like I'm dearly hoping for an HD release, it's just a preference, xo I'm gonna get into that debate. @ Klepto You're questioning the franchises popularity? Really? Also, the rest of your post deals with why it will be on the Wii. I'm simply discussing the notion that putting it on the Wii will lead to much higher sales. I really don't want to get into this any further, I've generally been good at avoiding this topic. I just want the damn game to come out already, whether it's HD or Wii.


Soriku (on 06 February 2010)

@rafi Haha, a kiddy version? I'm glad you don't run the company. They'd never do that. Also why does 3D or whatever have to do with anything? We're talking about games here and DIsney games have sold better on the Wii than either HD console and Epic Mickey, a game that's supposed to rebrand Mickey Mouse. I don't see the HD consoles getting such a major game from them. @Nybbas BBS outsold 358 because BBS is more like a main game and 358 isn't. BBS would've outsold 358 if BBS was on the Wii or PS3 too.


atma998 (on 06 February 2010)

@rafichamp No, just no.


rafichamp (on 06 February 2010)

Also by doing that, you make $$$ at one end, but you still keep your respect as a quality developer, anyone agree?


rafichamp (on 06 February 2010)

@Sauka, listen all I am saying is, make a HD version of KH3 for PS3, and a kiddie version for Wii, everyone wins.


rafichamp (on 06 February 2010)

Wait, who the **** is saying Disney has a good relationship with Nintendo, Disney was one of the first companies to support Sony's 3D plans, I bet you anything Sony has a better relationship with Disney then Nintendo.


Nybbas (on 06 February 2010)

If you look at the sale of BBS compared to 358/2 days as well, the PSP in japan has blown away the DS's sales (especially considering install base) time will tell how it does in the Americas. Not sure how much of an indication this would be over how well a main title in the series would do base on one system or the other, but also imagine a bunch of people buying KH3, who haven't played the first two either, it isn't like this is a final fantasy game where the story is different every time.


Buzzi (on 06 February 2010)

Kingdom Hearts 3 on Wii would sell over 3m surely, and considering the costs to develop the game, it would be a better move for them, economically speaking. They can sell even more, publishing the two previous game in a new Wii version...it would not be difficult, they would sell and the KH userbase would increase: SE are you listening (if you want KH3 on Wii)?


Nybbas (on 06 February 2010)

Putting it on the 360 (although you were being sarcastic) would be a joke. For some reason I don't see their masses of halo/gears frat boys going out to buy Disney+FF. I really hope it comes to the PS3, I have a Wii as well so worst case I can still play it there. To everyone who keeps saying its the demographic that the wii has, I think stats 87 hit it on the head with the whole, "this game really isn't for little kids" It isn't tinkerbell fairytales, where you run around doing chores all day. The Mechanics in the KH games gear them towards a more experienced user base. I could easily see them putting it on the Wii, and I will probably cry if they do, but I have my fingers crossed for the PS3. Sony if they have half a clue would do whatever it took to keep it exclusive to them. It is just like with the Final Fantasies, I guarantee you a large portion of their fanbase is waiting for this game, and that a LOT of people would buy a PS3 for it. If it comes out on the Wii though, at least we have FFverses which from what I understand should be KH without the disney, we will see I guess. If anything it might give me a reason to dust off my Wii.


deus837 (on 06 February 2010)

It's between Wii and PS3 for sure. Here's hoping PS3, UNLESS being on Wii means Nintendo characters can make an appearance!!! (Sora, Mickey and Mario as your party? You know you want it!)


atma998 (on 06 February 2010)

Epic Mickey is coming exclusively to the Wii. Dragon Quest X is coming exclusively to the Wii. Most of the Disney Interactive Studios crappy games easily sold 1 million on the Wii. Imagine what a 'AAA' disney game can do. Kingdom Hearts games are selling most of their LTD sales in NA and Japan, the two best territories of the Wii. And I don't even talk about the KH audience. Now let's guess which console it will be released on...


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

@Stats87: "when previous games sold 5.5M and 3.8M on the PS2. "First of all this is a different generation. You are discussing a topic that happened years ago. You DO NOT know how much money they will shell out to vastly improve game sales. Disney forms a Nintendo-exclusive video game studio - http://www.afterdawn.com/news/archive/8103.cfm Square-Enix is developing Nintendo's upcomming basketball game. - You do not even know if they will try to implement some of Nintendo's characters in the game. "IGN has predicted a list of characters that they predicted might be Brawl. One brand name came to mind when making the list, Square Enix. Keep in mind that these are only predictions made by IGN, they are in no way confirmations. They're worth a read." - http://www.khinsider.com/news/kingdom-hearts-in-brawl-2.html "The fact is, the franchise is popular enough": Really? how do you know if its enough? How did you determined that? The point is that it clearly shows there is tight collaboration between the 3. Between implementing characters into each others games, and developing games for the Ds and Wii console.


Stats87 (on 06 February 2010)

@ KleptoKnight I highly doubt KH3 would sell "7M - 8M minimum" on the Wii, when previous games sold 5.5M and 3.8M on the PS2. It's not like the Wii has that many more gamers then the PS2 did who would buy the game. I'm estimating that a solid chunk of Wii owners have it for things like Wii Fit, Mario Kart, party games etc. So KH3 wouldn't really be in the cards for them. I also think people are really overrating the whole children/family thing just cause it's Disney. I know this is just small sample, but every person that I knew who who owned the game was aged 14 and up. I knew lots of family's or kids with PS2's, not one of them had Kingdom Hearts. Lastly, a lot of people aged 18 and up also bought it for it's Disneyness...nostalgia is a heck of a thing. The fact is, the franchise is popular enough and with characters that are well known enough, that it will sell really well no matter what console it is on.


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

@Colonel-Killzone: Again you keep repeating the same question, its obviously you do not read. You said, "Lol funny im reading comments here people saying wii is the better system i wonder how the game would be better on the wii then the PS3." Im pretty sure we all aware that despite the not so fantastic graphics on the Wii console and NDS, nevertheless, both consoles are pretty much dominating the gaming scene. The game does not have to in corporate motion sensing. There are a handful of wii games with success sales operating with classic control. Despite the amount of Kingdom Hearts fans with a Ps3 console, it is obvious, it cannot be compared to the userbase of the Wii console that consists a variety of casual gamers such as the adolescence, parents, and grandparents.


Shonen (on 06 February 2010)

Ok sony fanboys . get ready to scream its a Wii exclusive dhausdhausdha -just kidding- .... -but it may be hum ?- ...-or worst a 360 exclusive?-...-i mean M$ pays M$ has it-


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

"if anything why wasn't kingdom hearts 1 and 2 on the gamecube or xbox then ?" @ Colonel-Killzone: You keep asking the same question over again. The Games were created for the PS2 console due to the popularity of the console. No developers ignored the sales of the Ps2 during those times. This time around there is a major contender, the Nintendo Wii. Square, Disney and Nintendo work very close together. A game like Kingdom Hearts without a doubt releasing on a platform such as the Nintendo Wii, will easily grab a wide variety of audiences. Right now the Wii is close to selling about 70 million consoles. "having a Kingdom Heart game exclusive on the 360 the best selling HD system in the US would actually be a smart move." - Actually not a smart move. The xbox 360 does not sell well in Japan. The Nintendo Wii and Playstation 3 are popular in Japan and US. Square Enix remaining silent clearly presents it has interest in developing it for other consoles.


huaxiong90 (on 06 February 2010)

Or with Arc coming, they could make it PSWii, I suppose.


brandnewchair (on 06 February 2010)

yeah Xen, i know i can just wikipedia it.. i guess my point was, "i hope they make KH3 a little more coherent." if they start with "after the heartless take your soul, and create a new world out of that soul, who then creates its own world from the souls of forgotten heartless, who are actually made up of the souls of people from a unseen dimension, and your mission in KH3 is to become 'senshi' who is actually sora and roxas' 'nobody' who is a mix of both of them, plus their nobodies..etc etc.." then im done.


Xen (on 06 February 2010)

Search the web, brandnewchair. :P


brandnewchair (on 06 February 2010)

okay, i played through and enjoyed both KH1 and KH2. i never played any of the other KH side games. so can someone explain to be before KH3 comes out... what the hell is going on in those games?


Buzzi (on 06 February 2010)

If they really haven't started developing it there's a good chance of being on the Wii: because if it keeps selling like that it will have a good userbase in the US and in Japan, because there's the possibility of a relaunch of the console (Wii Plus or something like that, with HD output) and because they'll have seen how Epic Mickey performed...plus this year Wii owners will have a lot of RPGs (Fragile, Xenoblade, The last Story, MH3 [kind of RPG] , Tales of Graces, Dragon Quest X [more probably 2011], Arc Rise Fantasia, Enclave...), so the userbase for that kind of games will increase surely.


Chris Hu (on 06 February 2010)

@Colonel-Killzone I doubt that would happen since Kingdom Hearts is a lot more popular in the west then in Japan. All Kingdom Hearts games have sold the most in the US and having a Kingdom Heart game exclusive on the 360 the best selling HD system in the US would actually be a smart move. If you want to see Japanese people riot announce DQ XI exclusive for a MS console.


sangbyung (on 06 February 2010)

watch it will be on xbox360. lol


Colonel-Killzone (on 06 February 2010)

@blood_tears lmfao i would laugh if that happens you would see japanese people riot


Blood_Tears (on 06 February 2010)

Calling it now E3 2010, MS announces KH3 Exclusive.


dark_gh0st_b0y (on 06 February 2010)

Epic Mickey is on Wii, would make sense KH3 as well, but who knows? i hope it's Wii or at least Ps3


Colonel-Killzone (on 06 February 2010)

@sokiru You do know back then com came out the nintendo was the only handheld competition out there you seriously gonna bring that in this discussion seeing how there is no other handheld console at that time. Second birth by sleep yet again on a sony platform 356 days wasn't really in the main sequel it just covered the back story about roxas and organization 13. Who said Nomura was a crazy sony fanatic if anything why wasn't kingdom hearts 1 and 2 on the gamecube or xbox then ? You just said bbs has more to do with the main sequel when it was made for the psp and not the DS hmmm a sony handheld. Lol funny im reading comments here people saying wii is the better system i wonder how the game would be better on the wii then the PS3. And note you just said motion control if it wasn't for that i don't see a good reason for it to be on the wii unless they wanna just sell it for the money. Well i believe it will be on the Ps3 idk if it will be on it exclusive but it will most def be on the ps3


down-down-down-down- (on 06 February 2010)

will be kh3 for wii or ps3?


Metallicube (on 06 February 2010)

This game just screams Wii exclusive. Biggest userbase, many kid gamers, motion controls for casting spells and whatnot. It's a no brainer. If not an exclusive, it should at least be on PS3 and Wii.


huaxiong90 (on 06 February 2010)

The Wii seems to be the most appropriate platform for Kingdom Hearts 3.


Stats87 (on 06 February 2010)

I would prefer if KH3 ended up on an HD system, but if it does end up on the Wii then oh well, I own one of those too. Just not a handheld please =P


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

"do you really think KH1/KH2 were on the PS2 because of some sort of devotion to Sony...or was it because the PS2 was extremely popular and so they put all their games there?" -Agree lol "if nomura cared about money he would have said for versus to be on the 360 also lol ." - Umm I suppose they would'nt mind developing it for Xbox 360, however it requires negotiations from Microsoft and Square. its all about who is putting the big bucks on the table first.....

@Colonel What are you talking about? You act as if Nomura is some crazy Sony fanatic. He isn't. If he was he wouldn't have worked on Nintendo systems before for games like KH: CoM (which was basically as important as BBS), 358, and TWEWY. You say BBS is like a spin off. It has more in common with the main games than spins offs/sidestories. For the record it has brand new characters, worlds, music, and leads up to KH3 (358 and Coded do the same but BBS shows what's to come even more). It isn't some crappy spin off. Nomura believes they have ability to create quality KH games because of Re: CoM and BBS! Besides, do you really think KH1/KH2 were on the PS2 because of some sort of devotion to Sony...or was it because the PS2 was extremely popular and so they put all their games there? Also no, we don't want it for fancy motion controls. In fact they probably wouldn't add many motion controls if they added any at all. Look at some of the more recent Wii games like MH3 or Tales or whatever - they use the classic controller and MH3 only has minimal motion controls (Tales of Graces doesn't have any at all). Chances are a KH game would be the same. How about we actually want a KH game because it's a good series?


Colonel-Killzone (on 06 February 2010)

@sauka I think your assuming a bit much don't forget ps3 will have motion control soon so yea if it does any of that fancy movement they will just add motion control support to kingdom hearts on the ps3 lol. Most of the fans are on the wii thats a lie most of them want it there just for the fancy motion control because they think the action would fit with it. Don't expect this game to hit the wii lol like i said if they want to attract casual gamers nomura team will just add motion support with the ps3 arc controller or did you forget that lol ?


Colonel-Killzone (on 06 February 2010)

omg the main sequels always been the sony brand console lmfao are some of you kidding me with the wii people most of the userbase bought the ps3 for kingdom hearts 3. Nomura is developing this game when the hell has he ever consider putting the main sequel on the wii if nomura cared about money he would have said for versus to be on the 360 also lol . Developers like kojima and nomura isn't just about money you know. Fyi the same team is working on versus also so they have some experience on the ps3. Don't compare spin off to the main sequel bbs and 365 days are just spin off lol.


flagstaad (on 06 February 2010)

So the Osaka team has now experience developing for the PSP, that has similar capabilities to those of the Wii, but none experience developing for the PS3 or Xbox360. If that its the team responsable for the next kingdom Hearts, I think it gives the Wii exclusive argument another strong point to consider.


Soriku (on 06 February 2010)

BBS started in 2007...why would they put it on the Wii all the way back then. At the time people didn't have faith in the Wii's sales, remember. And the PSP wasn't doing too bad then either.


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

because: Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days NDS


Kennyheart (on 06 February 2010)

KeptoKnight then why didn't BBS get on the wii.


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

"As I’m sure you’re all aware, the relationship between Disney Interactive, Square Enix and Nintendo is currently at an unprecedented all time high, therefore it should come as no surprise that both respected developers have supposedly agreed to début the next instalment of the popular franchise on the Nintendo Wii." - http://mynintendonews.com/2007/01/07/nintendo-wii-kingdom-hearts-wii-bound/ That is actually very true.


Soriku (on 06 February 2010)

Actually what's more interesting is that he thinks the Osaka team has the ability to make important KH games. RE: CoM and BBS proved that.


KeptoKnight (on 06 February 2010)

I am sure developers cant ignore the fact that even if so many people who have the Ps3 are fans of KH3, nevertheless, this game can easily grab the Casual gamers attention of the market. With proper advertisement techniques, it is without a doubt a clever move to develop this product for the console that can easily grab children, adolescents, Parents and senior citizens into purchasing the game. If it is going to be developed for the Ps3 console, SE would not be tight lipped about it. Remaining silent clearly presents it has interest in developing it for the console that the game will accompany success sales.


Soriku (on 06 February 2010)

Meh, this doesn't really say much. Of course he'd want it to be made as soon as possible. More action plz. I see people are in full throttle though.


Kennyheart (on 06 February 2010)

I think SE would keep the 3 main titles with the sony platform.And plus the wii is already getting DQX.


Sauka (on 06 February 2010)

@rafichamp Last time I checked Kingdom Hearts wasn't a mature series. So what do you mean when you say that the Wii version would be kiddie? I'm guessing you think the game would be kiddie because the graphics wont be in HD. Graphics don't decide if I game is Mature, Casual or Kiddie. I guess KH1 and KH2 are also kiddie versions of KH, along with every other game on the PS2.


Attoyou (on 06 February 2010)

menx64 The PSP Version is not OUT in NA Or others yet , and im pretty sure it out sold the DS Version in japan . Pretty good for the Dead PSP .


menx64 (on 06 February 2010)

@Attoyou .... The Ds version is a million ahead of KHBBS, & the psp is almost death, japan is the only territory supporting psp games... KH3 on wii... I could be, but I would not put my money on that, the guys of SE are just crazy...


rafichamp (on 06 February 2010)

@Nintendo people, SE will most likely release the true sequel for PS3 (no brainier), SE will prolly make a kiddie version for Wii for $$$ some time after the PS3 version.


Sauka (on 05 February 2010)

There are a lot of people on the PS3 who want KH3, but there are even more on the Wii. KH3 will have the most success If It's on the Wii and if you think the Wii has no user base for this game and if you think the user base on the Wii can't compare with the PS3 (For this game) That is extremely idiotic. It will be a smart business move if KH3 goes on the wii, so if they have any business sense at all expect it on the Wii.


Attoyou (on 05 February 2010)

The DS Kingdom Hearts Did Not sell all that great did it ? KHBBS will probably Out sell it LTD


MirrorWorld (on 05 February 2010)

Lol, if KH3 comes out for the Wii, my friend's gonna freak out :P But honestly, I don't think the Wii will be a very good system for KH unless it uses the Classic Controller or sumthing 'cause the Wiimote doesn't seem like a good controller for KH


Colonel-Killzone (on 05 February 2010)

WTF why do wii fans say KH3 userbase real fans is the wii thats utter nonsense i know lots of people on the PS3 fanbase is waiting for kingdom hearts 3 this is nomura we are talking about lol when has nomura known for doing wii exclusives he has always been with sony if anything expect this to be on the PS3. People think motion controls for this game will be good. Please note the only games that sell good on the wii mostly are games made by nintendo themselves lol so stop saying wii has this amount that doesn't matter.


Colonel-Killzone (on 05 February 2010)

Its not gonna be on the wii why do people keep saying that crap its gonna be on the ps3 thats where the fans are


Sauka (on 05 February 2010)

It will be a mistake to NOT have it on the Wii. If SE wants money it will be on Wii.


Andysw (on 05 February 2010)

The question is what system will kingdom hearts 3 be on?


roccerfeller (on 05 February 2010)

@sonic shuffle You never know man. At one point Final Fantasy was known as a Nintendo franchise. No one really looks at it that way today! For all intents and purposes, this game could show up on the Wii or PS3. Who knows. It would be crazy if at E3 this year, Microsoft announced it as a 360 exclusive lol! I say we all chill, and wait and see what platform it lands on. Wii haters; suck it up if it hits the Wii. PS3 haters; suck it up if it hits the PS3. True gamers should own both systems anyways ;)


KeptoKnight (on 05 February 2010)

yeah then thats 70+ u cant ignore that kind of userbase lol "Kek"


NicholasCage (on 05 February 2010)

KH3 in Japan Fall 2010.


KeptoKnight (on 05 February 2010)

Actually More than +74-80 Million WII consoles.....thats ridiculous good.


KeptoKnight (on 05 February 2010)

For those saying "plz Ps3" u must live in the moon. This game everyone knows will be $$$$ when it comes to the Wii. With Proper Advertisement especially in Toys-R-us, Gamestop, without a doubt 7-8 million copies AT MINIMUM would be my prediction. It wouldnt make sense if IT DID not come to the Wii...LOL Wii is where the userbase is.....by the time this game comes out Wii will have a total about 70-71 million consoles sold.


killeryoshis (on 05 February 2010)

@Harkins Now I hope its a wii excluesive :P or better yet a DS excluesive. Etheir way I think it'll proberly sell more on wii :P


guiduc (on 05 February 2010)

@Harkins -_- You do know you can do a masterpiece on a weaker console as Galaxy


Chrizum (on 05 February 2010)

Wow, lots of Sony fanboys foaming at the mouth already... don't worry, the game will come to the PS3.
