It feels like Kingdom Hearts III has been in development for centuries, but Square Enix has at long last confirmed that the long-awaited RPG will launch next year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It has also been hinted that Switch owners might get a version too, but only after the confirmed versions hit stores shelves.
Speaking to IGN at D23 Expo, Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura said:
The Nintendo Switch is definitely a very interesting piece of hardware, but if we lightly say, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll be on the Nintendo Switch,’ I’m sure people will come back and say, ‘But what about the PS4 and Xbox One? We want them out first. Don’t focus on other platforms,’ So for now, we want to focus on what platforms we’ve already announced we’re going to be releasing Kingdom Hearts III on. And so after, perhaps, maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.
Do you think there's a chance we'll see the game on Switch? What kind of downgrades will Square Enix have to make in order to get the game onto Nintendo's console? If you're excited about this possibility, share your thoughts with a comment.
