So how about Kingdom Hearts 3? Please?

Kingdom Hearts is still my favorite game franchise, and cannot wait till the third one comes out. When Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days came out I thought that this could be pretty cool knowing the whole story of Roxas and the Organization. Now Birth by Sleep? Well um ok, the prequel to the whole Kingdom Hearts series I wish it wasn't on PSP but whatever. They have to come out with Kingdom Hearts 3 now or a Kingdom Hearts game on a console right? Nope they are doing Kingdom Hearts ReCoded, sigh.

This is now the third consecutive portable Kingdom Hearts game to come out/announced. I'm not to upset about this but I'm just starting to become a little impatient. I purposely bought a DS just for 358/2 Days and I don't wanna fork out another 200$ just for Birth by Sleep. Well I guess I have no choice but to wait (and buy a PSP).
 
So what do you Kingdom Hearts fans think about ReCoded and where this amazing franchise is going?

Amazing is a strong word for a franchise that only made 2 good games and a bunch of okay handheld games.
 
Lemmie just play Mickey Mouse already!
 
I could care less about the convoluted and not so Disney trend the series is going toward.

I don't know enough about ReCoded to say yet, but I do know the KH team is making FF vs XIII now and when thats done then we'll hear more about KH 3...

Let's be real. Kingdom Hearts 1 had a pretty cool story. Then Chain of Memories came to make it convoluted. Then Kingdom Hearts 2 came and totally lost me. Kingdom Hearts was an awesome idea until they started drifting away from the whole reason people played it; the characters. I don't care about Roxas, or the Nobodies, or the organization. I like the Disney characters and the people on Twilight island with Sora. Everyone else can go to hell.

Kingdom Hearts 2 did just that. You just had to be near death to do it.
 
Also, there already is a Kingdom Hearts 3, it's called 358/2 Days. Don't believe me? It's right there in the title!

I agree with you now we need KH3 to fix up the story lol

I'm a fan of the series but it can totally get confusing. Please no more hand helds! (I did hear promising things about the PSP game).

I read the title as Klingon Hearts - Mikey vs Kilngons, go!

I hear that after these two games they are making the push to Kingdom Hearts 3, meaning we should see it in a time structure that Square possess: 2 years and then pushed back another 1 1/2 years

Square Enix couldn't seem less interested in making another console-based Kingdom Hearts game at this point.  I've heard people say that KH3 is next up once they're done with FF Versus XIII, but I'm not sure why anyone thinks this is true.  The portable KH games they've been putting out are almost certainly cheaper than a console game would be and probably sell about as well, maybe even better in Japan where everyone only cares about portable games.  I could be wrong. but I wouldn't be surprised if we never saw another Kingdom Hearts game on a console.

This is completely true but it looks more like KH3 is just going further down that rabbit hole of anime cliches. I mean that's exactly what the entire organization is about, right? As nitpicky as it sounds I'm through with spiky hair, overly zippered dudes with Xs in their name and black cloaks on because they're just so cool. They tried to grow up with the audience or something but just made it lame. I've also had it with the handheld distractions that only serve to continue the over complication of the story. The first game was great because it was charming, and simple. You know, like the song....

This too. Dragon Quest 9 is doing quite well, why spend the time and resources to make a next gen game when you could do one for a lot cheaper on a portable.

Seeing how Square Enix can just put out coasters with Final Fantasy something on it & get acres of money, I think that   anything nonportable KH is going to be a long ways off so best is to just be patient with the handhelds & #1-2 of KH. Until they announce something more on it, nobody will know anything more on what Square is doing.

Has anyone even considered that Kingdom Hearts is not a trilogy and is instead just two games? 
Also, fuck Kingdom hearts. No offense buddy.

Posted by bartok

Fuck Kingdom Hearts!!!  You give me a game with all these kick ass Disney and Final Fantasy characters and I am stuck playing as the biggest dorks ever.  Would  you rather play as freakin' Tron or some lame spikey hair kid that dresses 10 times worse then Tidus from FF10 ?

At the rate they are moving with Versus, we probably won't see KH3 until the next console cycle.

Nomura has stated on multiple occasions that KH3 won't happen until Versus XIII is done because both he and the team responsible for KH and KH2 are the ones working on Versus XIII.

Twilight Island?  There is no Twilight Island.  There's a Twilight Town, and the Destiny Islands, and well, which location are you talking about?
