Kingdom Hearts III Not the Next Title in the Series

February 21, 2010Written by Dan Massi

Kingdom Hearts III has been anticipated since the 2005 sequel to the original title. Now that the latest title in the series, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, has been released in Japan, the hype for the third console title has exploded. But the question is, when will it happen?

In the latest Famitsu Weekly, the famous Japanese magazine had an interview with Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura. The interview was on the entire Kingdom Hearts series, and brought up was the teased Kingdom Hearts III. However, it seems that Kingdom Hearts III will not be the next title in the series. When asking if it would be the next game, Nomura responded with, “No no, that’s still a secret (laughs). The title with a connection to the mystery series that I mentioned before will come out first.” This is assuming of course, that the translation is correct. But as of now, we can expect the next Kingdom Hearts title not to be the third console title.
