Tetsuya Nomura is the acclaimed director of the upcoming Final Fantasy XV, and co-director of Kingdom Hearts 3. He is currently working on both of these games, which are going to release on the PS4 and Xbox One. Both of these games were revealed at E3, 2014 along with the PS4 hardware.
In a latest interview with Weekly Famitsu, Nomura expressed his thoughts on developing for the PS4.
Looking at the PS4, I thought “they’ve gone too far.” I wish they would just let us off the hook. For the player, having a game that’s “thoroughly made” makes them excited with anticipation, but for a developer, it’s a hurdle we have to overcome.
Nomura seems to overwhelmed with the specs of the PS4. He also considers it more work to do.
The number of things we have to do keeps increasing and if we keep trying to expand as far as it will go, we’ll never be finished. I think we’re going to end up being faced with the choice of what to keep and what to give up on [for Kingdom Hearts III].
Kingdom Hearts 3 announcement at E3 was wildly echoed among the gaming community and Nomura acknowledges the response that he got at E3.
I really felt the immense response to the Kingdom Hearts III announcement and so it’s now my task to figure out how to satisfy all those people who are looking forward to it.
He finds the task of development for PS4 challenging and considers it their hardest task to-date.
There have been a lot of different consoles in the past, but I feel that this one is the biggest mountain we’ve had to climb yet, in a good way.
