In a new interview, Tetsuya Nomura said "it's about time" that the series returned to consoles.
The next Kingdom Hearts game could finally see the series make its long-awaited return to consoles, according to a new interview.
In the new issue of Game Informer, series director Tetsuya Nomura said he felt "it's about time" that the Kingdom Hearts series had another outing on consoles.
Talking about the current direction of the series, he explained, "The PS Vita is definitely a powerful device that is very interesting, but because of its high power, there isn't much of a difference with a console. So even if we were to make a game, we would have to be very careful about how to create it for that device.
"I also feel that it's about time that Kingdom Hearts should go back to being on a console."
The last time the Disney/Square hybrid had an outing on consoles was in 2004 with Kingdom Hearts 2. It's too soon to tell whether Kingdom Hearts 3 would make it onto this generation of consoles or the next, but Nomura has some advice for anyone wanting to know more.
He said, "I'm not able to disclose any information on what's coming next or any other future plans, but you may be able to find a hint if you play through Dream Drop Distance to the very end."
Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance will launch on the 3DS in Europe on July 20th and on July 31st in North America.
