Square Enix hasn’t ruled out releasing Kingdom Hearts 3 on Nintendo Switch, but will first concentrate on completing the game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
That’s according to director Tetsuya Nomura who, at D23 Expo this weekend, had revealed that a world based on Toy Story will join Big Hero 6 and Tangled as new areas to explore in Sora’s next adventure.
“The Nintendo Switch is definitely a very interesting piece of hardware, but if we lightly say, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll be on the Nintendo Switch,’ I’m sure people will come back and say, ‘But what about the PS4 and Xbox One? We want them out first. Don’t focus on other platforms,'” Nomura explained to IGN.
“So for now, we want to focus on what platforms we’ve already announced we’re going to be releasing Kingdom Hearts 3 on. And so after, perhaps, maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.”
Kingdom Hearts 3 is being built with Unreal Engine 4, a suite of integrated tools that Nintendo has looked to promote on Nintendo Switch – their new Yoshi game even using it.
Kingdom Hearts 3 will release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide in 2018.
