Tetsuya Nomura clarifies statement on a possible Switch port of Kingdom Hearts III

A few days ago, we reported on a statement made by Kingdom Hearts III director Tetsuya Nomura to IGN on the possibility of a Switch port of the game. He was already fairly vague and non-committal, saying that a release of the game on other platforms might be considered after its initial release on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. However, it seems like some outlets interpreted Nomura’s answer a bit too positively for his taste, especially in Japan where some of the nuances of his (English) interview with IGN were lost in translation. Speaking to Famitsu (thanks to Dualshockers for the translation), he reiterated that the platforms the game will initially launch on are the sole focus at the moment, and that a release on other platforms would only be considered afterwards. He also stated that while he was asked about the Switch by IGN, he himself didn’t single out Nintendo’s new system, only mentioning “other platforms” as possible targets for a port.
So there you have it. A Switch port of Kingdom Hearts III might still be happening at some point, but given that Nomura made the effort to clarify his statements, it’s far from a sure thing.

Director says Kingdom Hearts III on Switch “maybe” possible after the game’s initial launch
Posted on 4 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 225 Comments | 0 Likes
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.”
