Tetsuya Nomura Says That Kingdom Hearts III's Release Is Still A While Away!?!?
Hi everyone it's Xebs, Tetsuya Nomura, director of the Kingdom Hearts series, spoke with Famitsu Weekly magazine this week, talks about the Kingdom Hearts series, and the development status of Kingdom Hearts III. Nomura stated that Kingdom Hearts III (along with Final Fantasy VII Remake, which he is also working on) still has "a [far] ways to go", with some worlds that remain untouched so far, and other unannounced worlds advancing in production. The relevant excerpt from the interview can be seen below:
- What’s the development status of Kingdom Hearts III?
Nomura: “The production process is different than what we’ve had up until now, so I can’t just give you a general idea, but I can say that there are worlds that still remain untouched. We’ve advanced on the production of worlds that have yet to be announced, so we can’t show them for now. As far as development status goes, there’s still a ways to go.”
- What’s the development status on Final Fantasy VII Remake?
Nomura: “We’re making steady progress on its production. While we are indeed working on it, I think we’ll have you guys wait a little longer for both Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake.
I do apologise for that, but we’ll make up for it by making it into something that will meet expectations.We didn’t share much information on either of the two titles last year, but I hope to show its progress at some event this year.
The release of these titles will still be a while. However, we have many titles releasing this year, and we hope you look forward to any ‘surprises’.”
Kingdom Hearts III currently has no release date.
