It was finally revealed that latest and long-in-development numbered game in the Kingdom Hearts series, Kingdom Hearts III
is on its way. "Now in development", said the reveal trailer, though that wasn't much of a surprise. Still, it was nice to finally see something official.
According to Tetsuya Nomura, the game began development shortly after Birth by Sleep was released in 2010 for the Playstation Portable.
Kingdom Hearts III
marks the tenth installment in the magnificent Disney-Final Fantasy mash-up franchise that originated with the trio Sora, Kairi and Riku and expanded to so much more, including new characters, new stories, and a wonderful - albeit complex - tale to tell. There have been two numbered (now three) installments and seven spin-off/side-quel installments that spanned across multiple platforms.
Now number 3 is finally on its way exclusively to the PS4, and as a big fan of the franchise this is wonderful news indeed as the first game is perhaps my favorite game of all time.
