Coming hot off the presses of the D23 Expo, in which Kingdom Hearts III was confirmed for a 2018 release, an interview with series director Tetsuya Nomura suggests he may have interest in bringing the highly anticipated Square Enix title to the Nintendo Switch. No one can yet take Sora and the gang on the go with Switch quite yet, but there seems to be reason to hope for it!
After bringing the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of
Kingdom Hearts III to fans, Nomura thinks that it might be worth bringing the well-loved crossover game to Switch.
“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.” — Tetsuya Nomura, Kingdom Hearts III director
