Kingdom Hearts 3 Will End Story, but Not Series!
Over a decade ago, gamers began to attach themselves to Sora, his life, and the friends he surrounded himself with. They were right there with him as he fought the Heartless, learned about the Nobodies, and ventured through worlds that only he could dream of. Kingdom Hearts 3 will finally end the ongoing story that players have grown to love, but – on the plus side, it will not be ending the series. L.A. Times had the opportunity to interview Tetsuya Nomura, the series director, and spoke to him about it.
“In Kingdom Hearts 3, the battles that the characters have been fighting for the past 10 years will come to a conclusion,” Nomura stated. “But the series will continue. Only the particular enemy they have been fighting for the past 10 years will come to an end.” Even with the story arc ending, there is hope for more games, and with a different enemy. Nomura also noted that many things are still subject to change, but at this point the team is using Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance as a guide for Kingdom Hearts 3’s combat. One thing Nomura did not expand on was whether or not there would be Pixar or Star Wars characters in Kingdom Hearts 3.
Kingdom Hearts 3 will be released on Xbox One and PS4, though no date has been specified.
