Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory

In an interview with Ntower, Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory co-director Masanobu Suzui spoke about why the game will be released on Switch.

Suzui started out by mentioning franchise director Tetsuya Nomura’s interest in the system. Since Switch is very popular around the world currently with a big install base, that was another important factory. Ultimately the team wanted as many people as possible to experience the music of Kingdom Hearts.

Suzui stated:

Square Enix has delivered a new batch of details and screenshots for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. On top of that, we have information pertaining to confirmed songs, Versus Mode version differences, and more.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast we’re catching up on several recent releases. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is a mixed bag, Giraffe and Annika a charming little adventure, Sentinels of Freedom has highs and lows, and Spiritfarer is a character-driven delight.

Being disappointed is fine—we move on and play all the games that are already out or releasing soon. Those who are genuinely upset? That’s behavior that players should identify within themselves and reevaluate how they interact with entertainment media.
