Kingdom Hearts III is not the last game in the series


Kingdom Hearts III took us all by surprise at E3 and left us with our mouths wide open. Fans had been awaiting the game’s announcement for 10 years, so this reaction was expected.

Game director, Tetsuya Nomura, was interviewed (yet another time) by LA Times. Nomura said that he had never intended the game series to be a trilogy.

“There was never a plan. As a core game, this is finally the third, and ten years have passed,” he said.


“In Kingdom Hearts 3, the battles that the characters have been fighting for the past ten years will come to a conclusion. That is the plan. But the series will continue. Only the particular enemy they have been fighting the past ten years will come to an end.”

I guess we’ll see some new and improved villains in Kingdom Hearts IV and onwards. I hope they change the heroes too; it seems unfair to put Sora and his friends through so much trouble. These guys need a vacation.

Nomura also spoke about his relationship with Disney. “What world is available for the title is an important question. The counterpart that I’ve been working with at Disney the past ten years is the same person,” he said “We have very heated discussions about this franchise, and we’ve done that for the past ten years, but we have a steady relationship.”

Kingdom Hearts III is coming out for the PS4 and Xbox One on an unannounced date in the future.

Thanks, Polygon.
