Kingdom Hearts series creator Tetsuya Nomura has explained that he’s now ready to return the Kingdom Hearts franchise to its console roots. Whether this has something to do with the below expected sales of Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance on the Nintendo 3DS remains to be seen. Nomura also stated that he still has an interest in HD versions of the previous Kingdom Hearts games and he is “currently researching them”.
“We have been invited to make games on different new platforms, and every time we have created titles making sure that they are highly compatible with the platform.”
“The PS Vita is definitely a powerful device that is very interesting, but because of it’s high power, there isn’t much of a difference with a console.”
“So even if we were to make a game, we would have to be very careful about how to create it for that device. I also feel that it’s about time that Kingdom Hearts should go back to being on a console.”
“If it is possible, I would like to do something about the series being spread over so many different consoles, too. I am thinking a lot about the future.”
