Tetsuya Nomura has provided an explanation as to why his company decided to release so many handheld installments of the “Kingdom Hearts” before announcing the upcoming PS4 and Xbox One video game, “Kingdom Hearts 3.” According to a report by Gameranx on July 17, the game director stated that they couldn’t start development on the main sequel due to undisclosed reasons. As a result, they decided to release handheld spin-off titles instead in order to prevent fans from forgetting the brand. You can check out several screenshots showcasing the action role-playing game in the slideshow at the top of this article.
“Kingdom Hearts 2” was released exclusively for the Playstation 2 in 2006. “Kingdom Hearts 3” was not officially announced until this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. The sequel is being developed by the same team that worked on the aforesaid handheld spin-off titles like “Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep” and “Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance.” “Kingdom Hearts 3” does not have a launch date.
