Director says Kingdom Hearts III on Switch “maybe” possible after the game’s initial launch
Square Enix has been showing a ton of support for Switch thus far. But if there’s one big hole missing in the company’s lineup, it would be Kingdom Hearts III.
IGN asked director Tetsuya Nomura about the possibility of Kingdom Hearts III coming to Switch. He started out by saying that the system “is definitely a very interesting piece of hardware,” though other platforms are the focus currently. After the initial launch on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One though, Nomura did say that “maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.”
Nomura’s full words:
“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 3 on. And so after, perhaps, maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.”
