Gamers looking for a partial taste of the next Kingdom Hearts game will have to play through Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, which should be hitting Japan sometime this winter. In an interview with Famitsu, Kingdom Hearts creator Tetsuya Nomura stated that Birth by Sleep possesses a secret video that will provide some insight for the next game. This may remind players of Kingdom Hearts I and II, as they both had their own mystery endings. Unfortunately, Nomura wouldn’t budge when asked if he was referring to Kingdom Hearts III.
Famitsu: Do you think people will want to replay the first title after clearing this one?
Nomura: Hmmm, I think there are a lot of puzzling elements, so maybe they’ll want to play the next game…And there’ll be a secret movie too.
Famitsu: The next game!? Do you mean “III”!?
Nomura: The next game will be the next game (laughs)
