Today I was eating at Wendy's™ with some friends while we hopped onto our iPhone 4s as we watched two kids dressed like Sora and Riku eat some delicious burgers. It got me and my friend's thinking, Kingdom Hearts is now Square's most profitable franchise and the Kingdom Hearts team is the only team that is scoring well above the averages in both scores and sales. The team working on Kingdom Hearts and Versus XIII is literally keeping Square alive for the past decade.
So with that said, they could easily leave Square Enix after they finish Versus XIII and Kingdom Hearts III, and then join up ATLUS or Level-5. I mean, you would retarded if you didn't hire them. They have yet to make a bad game...and they have yet to make a game that doesn't sell in the multiple of millions. I mean, seriously....Kingdom Hearts is now Square's most important franchise without question.
Sure some might say you got Batman and Edios, but they don't count. It's like the adopted kid, at the end of the day it just doesn't count (no offense to anyone who is adopted or has a sibling who is adopted).
So, let's pretend the KH team left (along with Nomura and Yoko) after KH2, where would Square be today?
