Square Enix managed to recapture the imaginations of a whole horde of Kingdom Hearts fans during the Sony press conference, as they announced that Kingdom Hearts 3 was in development. However, the series' creator Tetsuya Nomura had some words of warning.
In an interview with Famitsu, Nomura stated that he feels the game has been announced too soon, but understands why it needed to be done.
"Since the release of Kingdom Hearts II, I believe that many fans were feeling impatient due to our continuous releases of spin-off titles, so we decided to announce it at the same time as Final Fantasy XV. However, looking at the current development status, I think we may have announced it a little too early."
This doesn't bode all that well, as Square Enix don't have a fantastic track record for releasing games too close to their announcements. Could this mean a release in 2015-2016?
Nomura stated that more information about Kingdom Hearts 3 would be revealed at Disney's D23 Expo Japan in October, as well as this year's Tokyo Game Show in September.
