Rumor: Kingdom Hearts Finally Returning To Consoles
Kingdom Hearts is a series that’s difficult to explain; a mash-up of Disney and Final Fantasy, with a unique real time battle system. The games are also pretty damn successful; as one of Squares heavy hitting franchises, they should be.
The last time the series hit a console was on the PlayStation 2, way back in 2005. Since then we have seen an adaption for mobile phones (later ported to DS), PSP, DS (again) and with the western release of Dream Drop Distance on the horizon, we will soon be seeing Kingdom Hearts on the 3DS.
Tetsuya Nomura, during an interview with Game Informer, stated that whilst he is interested in the idea of a Kingdom Hearts on the Vita, “It’s about time that Kingdom Hearts should go back to being on a console.”
Square initially had planned to release 3 handheld titles before returning to the home consoles, however there are now 5. Could we finally see Kingdom Hearts returning to a home console?
