It remains one of the most popular video game franchises in existence, which is why many sources believe wholeheartedly that Square-Enix will produce another Kingdom Hearts installment…eventually.

Unfortunately, we've heard nothing in the way of concrete evidence so it's difficult to keep a firm grasp on hope. Some believe we may see the surprise unveiling of Kingdom Hearts III at E3 this year, but we really don't have any information to support such a theory. Then again, that doesn't mean it's entirely out of the question: according to a recent interview with Square-Enix's Tetsuya Nomura and Tomohiro Hasegawa, they don't plan to simply abandon the popular series. Heartstation is working on the full translation, but the one question and answer that will get everyone talking has already been revealed. In response to the question concerning KH, "Is there ever a feeling that there won't be a next installment?", Hasegawa replied:

"There surely will be. I really can't think of any reason why not, if everyone's heated support continues. When it is said 'Nomura will do III,' I can't say we haven't thought of anything."

It may be a somewhat broken translation, but you get the gist. The only downside is that it seems as if there's little chance of an actual announcement any time soon, so you can likely wave bye-bye to KHIII at E3. But if you want to be optimistic about the situation, simply take heart (no pun intended) that Square-Enix certainly seems interested in the possibility of a new entry in the critically acclaimed series. Now, all we need is for that "heated support" to continue…

I know a few people who have the 360 but loved these games for the ps2. They just might end up getting the ps3 because of this game.

Nowhere close to being overrated. KH was one of the best RPGs the PS2 ever had. Never could find the second one to try it, but I'm sure it was great as well.

When my little brother first got it, I was like
"what the hell? DISNEY? SQUARE???! Hell no!"

But I played it, and it was freaking amazing.

Agreed with that. He should focus all his attention on Versus XIII and make the game as epic or even more epic as the 3rd trailer shown at DK3713 was. Afterwards…we can have a KHIII. Even though that would mean…like it won't come until 2012.

LOL, that was funny dude!

Perhaps if Wada himself is gonna direct and produce the game it surely could be a 360 exclusive, but I doubt it. KH is Nomura's baby, it will be either on Wii or PS3.

Meh i just wish they didnt include the FF cast in the Kingdom Hearts games, they just dont fit in and are poorly represented though KH games. I like the idea of fighting them in the Collucium, but not being invovled in the story.

I want to see them have a Fantasia World in the next one, Fight the big F*** off T-rex in 'the Rite of Spring' DUN DUN DUN……. DUN DUN DUNNNNNN

No sweat off my sack since I don't dig it, but I know it's a huge title and the Japanese (Where PS3 is king) seem to like it so maybe there's a leeeetle bit of hope for an exclusive. But I'm still not convinced Versus will remain so.

There better be a Kingdom Hearts III.

They will do it, or they'll have billions of people from Asia doing Martial Arts to hunt down SE's ass.

Have I lost my mind? I remember seeing and reading about this a year ago. Here look at the trailer its real as far as I know because I never heard of it being debunked or fake. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEL2grmKSnM I am confused now after seeing this I am not sure what to think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35yH1e0YdEc it looks too pretty to be a psp game maybe I am wrong, I googled both and everybody else seems confused as I am. Who knows.

Back in 2006 i figured that KH3 would be out in 2010 based on how long it took the sequel to be made but i guess i was wrong:(

just give me it for PS3 and i'll be happy, exclusive will make cry tears of jy

Kingdom Hearts is my second favorite RPG series after Final Fantasy as you know. Again, I hope it will be another great game in the series and I also hope that Miley Cyrus and all those other Disney fartknockers will not make appearances. I'll take those skinny pirates over them any day.

Honestly, Disney isn't that same company it used to be three years ago. I'm a bit afraid to see what this game's going to be like.

LegendaryWolfeh

Indeed, but I don't see how she could be IN the game, she has no special anything about her…cept she's a lousy artist/actor..

Honestly, I doubt you would see her in the game as the license would possibly increase the cost of the game. However, Disney's new deal are lame sitcoms with laugh tracks and unattractive actors with purity rings, not their classic animated films. They put stuff like TRON and Pirates Of The Caribbean in KH2. The possibility of Hannah Montana in the game is there.

I thought Kingdom Hearts was rubbish.

Disney Characters? FAIL

FF characters? FAIL

Keyblades… epic fail

Level design? FAIL

Easy to use menu? FAIL

Retarded ship flight or whatever the hell that ship thing was, a bunch of blocks.

LegendaryWolfeh

So Mickey Mouse is a fail in general? Lion King is a fail? Final Fantasy is a fail? Sephy and Cloud are fails? Keyblades, kinda-ish. Level designs, they were all pretty good. Easy to use menu = fail? WTF, isn't the point to make a menu that's easy for everyone to use. Your post is the fail here.

The only part I half agree with is the keyblades, but it isn't a mature game lol we can't be giving kid's sharp swords of deadliness on their main character, that's why they gave us Riku 😀

Kingdom Hearts is an amazing game. Im saving up for a DSi, for Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and GTA China Town Wars. (I got $50 bucks saved up so far, wootness!) Anyways… LBP sure is a chick magnet, but has anyone bothered to show a girl a bit of Kingdom Hearts? Si, it turns into an episode of Girls Gone Gamers…
