The Kingdom Hearts III wiki last edited by Chaser324 on 06/09/14 04:04AM View full history

Overview

Kingdom Hearts III is the long awaited follow up to Kingdom Hearts II, and follows chronologically after Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. As this is the first Kingdom Hearts game made from the ground up for an HD console this will be the first time the art style of the series will be updated/changed.

It was first revealed during the 2013 Sony E3 press conference to be released on PlayStation 4. On June 11th Square-Enix also confirmed the title will be released on Xbox One as well (Marking the first time the series will be on an Xbox console).

Development

Despite Kingdom Hearts II being released in 2006, Kingdom Hearts III did not begin development until 2010 after the PSP prequel Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep was completed. As the team that made Kingdom Hearts & Kingdom Hearts II has spent their time since 2006 working on Final Fantasy XV (originally announced as Final Fantasy Versus XIII), Kingdom Hearts III is being made by the Osaka based team that made Birth by Sleep & Dream Drop Distance. Tetsuya Nomura stated in an interview during the Square Enix Presents E3 presentation, that they are focusing on using DirectX 11 to create this game, as well as for Final Fantasy XV, instead of focusing on creating a game for a specific platform as they had done in the past.
