Tetsuya Nomura has provided an explanation regarding the link between “Kingdom Hearts 3” and “Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix.” According to a report from Joystiq on Dec. 26, the game director explained that the remastered high-definition compilations for the PS3 will lead up to the story of the third main installment of the series on the PS4 and Xbox One.
Tetsuya Nomura also talked a little bit about “Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.” He found it sad that the Nintendo 3DS exclusive video game wasn’t remade in high-definition as it is an essential part of the main plot of “Kingdom Hearts 3.” He hoped that the situation can be rectified. You can find some screens from the upcoming PS4 and Xbox One video game in the slideshow to the left of this article and his comments below (courtesy of Joystiq and Kotaku):
The HD remastered games are a summary leading up to Kingdom Hearts 3. It'd be sad for one chapter not to be in HD in remaking the series, plus Kingdom Hearts 3D is a necessary piece for telling the story of Kingdom Hearts 3, so I've been telling myself that we need to start considering it.
The aforementioned “Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix” comes with “Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix” and “Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep” along with remastered cut scenes from “Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.” The compilation is expected to hit the PS3 current-generation console sometime next year in North America and other regions.
Tetsuya Nomura previously admitted that “Kingdom Hearts 3” is still early in the development stages. No release date time frame has been provided for the upcoming video game for the PS4 and Xbox One next-generation systems.
