Should Kingdom Hearts 3 be released on Wii U?

custom KH3 Wii U case

Please note that the above image is fake. But should it have to be? Today we’ll be talking about the Kingdom Hearts series history with Nintendo, and whether or not I think it will come to Wii U! Big thanks to our user “Ducked” for this topic suggestion!

A brief history lesson

For those of you who don’t know, Kingdom Hearts is Square Enix and Disney’s critically acclaimed attempt to combine the worlds of Final Fantasy and Disney characters. Originally debuting on the Playstation 2 in 2002, players followed “Sora”, a young keyblade master on a journey to find his friends. Along the way, he ends up meeting Goofy and Donald, who are looking for Sora as directed by King Mickey. Alright, that’s pretty much all I know for certain. What happens next gets pretty complicated, and I don’t even fully understand it all. Let’s just skip ahead to the console history.

Alright, so it started out on PS2, and then made its way to the Game Boy Advance. Then it went back to the PS2 for Kingdom Hearts 2, and then we got one for the DS, then one for the PSP, then one more for the 3DS. Surprisingly, None of these games have been crowned the official “Kingdom Hearts III“. They’ve all been prequels and prequels to prequels and so on. It gets confusing quickly.

Finally, at last year’s E3, the long awaited Kingdom Hearts III was announced. Not for Wii U though, for the PS4. “Alright.” I  said to myself. “That’s fair, Kingdom Hearts has always been on Playstation when it comes to home consoles.” I figured it wouldn’t go multiplatform, and that would be that. Boy was I wrong.

HERE COMES MICROSOFT WAVING ITS BIG GREASY C-

*technical difficulties, please stand by*

Ahem! Anyways, the next day, you’ll never guess what Microsoft announced was coming to the Xbox One. Yup. Good Ol’ Call of Doggy: Modern Woof Fare. Nah, I’m kidding. It was flippin’ Kingdom Hearts III. (I mean, come on. They had already milked the heck out of CoD at this point.) But seriously, think about this for a minute. Kingdom Hearts, a franchise with absolutely no history on the Xbox family of consoles just decides to up and run to the green giant.

I bet no money was involved in that decision.

And that leaves us where we are today. Happy that the game is coming, and a bit confused that there is no Wii U version yet announced.

What does it mean?

Well, it could mean a lot of things. Apparently, some people think that because the Wii U can’t use DirectX 11. This is kinda true, kinda not. As explained here, neither the Wii U or the PS4 support DirectX 11 itself, as Microsoft owns that technology. However, they both have their own solutions that let them use features very similar to those offered by DirectX 11. Now if just Microsoft and Sony owned the rights to this technology, I’d say “Oh sure, it’s not coming to the Wii U because of DirectX 11. That’s understandable”. But that’s not the case.

There’s something the Square Enix developers aren’t telling us. My guess is that they don’t want to call out Nintendo’s sales publicly, as this would ruin their otherwise good relationship. I mean, even if they don’t want to develop KH3 for the Wii U, who’s to say they’re not looking at the 3DS for the next Kingdom Hearts prequel to the sequel of the prequel?

In my honest opinion, I still think the game could show up on Wii U. I get the feeling there’s a lot of talking going on between these two companies, and some deals are getting made. I could be entirely wrong, but I’m allowed to dream, no? Dream about Square dropping the dough to go the distance with Nintendo? Alliteration and puns! I’m on fire!

Whenever I type the title of that game, I always want to type “New” in front of it. I guess we’re finally done with the “New Super Mario Bros.” series? I honestly thought it was a bit overused when they made the Wii  game… Anyhow! This is me. In a normal tanooki suit. Not cheating to get through a level. That’s not me at all… Ever… OKAY MAN IT WAS HARD! THERE WERE PLATFORMS AND GIANT SKATES AND… and… Okay I cheated.

Apparently a lot of the abilities in this game are named after clever references. I like that! But yeah, I just got this guy recently, and even though he has a jack-o-lantern head in real life, he appears normal in game. Oh well! He was cheaper than the regular one anyhow, so I figured I’d just take the plunge. I’m glad I did, he’s awesome, and I always like having more giants.

Just got Scribblenauts for me and the girlfriend to play, as we noticed it was only 20 dollars on the eshop. At 60 dollars, this game seemed like it wouldn’t be worth it. For 20, it seemed like a fun little game. I’ve played Scribblenauts before, and this one is a very good improvement over the original. I couldn’t see myself paying 60 dollars for it, but 20 seems like a fair price. I say go and get it if you’re looking for something to pass time.

      HERE COMES MICROSOFT WAVING ITS BIG GREASY C-

      *technical difficulties, please stand by*

      Ahem! Anyways, the next day…

      It just looks and feels really amatuer and like a writer that really is trying WAY too hard to be funny/clever but struggles to be.

      Anyways, OT, maybe Square Enix anticipates that the One will eventually outsell the Wii U? Although it’s going to take a very long time at the current rate both consoles are going at. I think Wii U will slightly beat Xbox One in the end but Nintendo fans have honestly proven to shun 3rd party. How can you blame Enix? Yes, Money did play a part. Perhaps they are looking at the sales of 3rd party games for Xbox One and Wii U? The Xbox One absolutely trumps the Wii U’s third party sales on a system that has roughly 2 million less users. What does that tell Enix? Think about that instead of having some conspiracy theory.

  • MHeinz

    I really hope this game comes out on wii u cuz this is my favorite video game franchise of all time and i would love to not have to shell out another $400 just for a console to play it on. For starters, it would make more sense than for it to come out on the xbox one because most of Square Enix’s sales for this game come from Japan, which the xbox brand has little to almost no presence in while nintendo does.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      yup. Square still has plenty of time to realize this and remedy it though

    • Ducked

      You make a good point. There’s a LOT of KH fans in Japan, and a lot more people own a Wii U in Japan then the Xbone, if it even appears there. Who knows, Wii U might do better then PS4

  • Guhtere

    I believe it should. Whether it gets released on it or not doesn’t affect me because I have a PS4. But if they released on the Xbox One which the XBox has had NO KH games, Vs. Nintendo which has had 4, it only makes sense.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      exactly my reasoning

  • Gabe Hoffman

    I think its really stupid to put KHIII on Xbox One. That game is practically destined to bomb on that platform. Wii U makes a hell of a lot more sense

    • Mario

      Totally.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      yup. No history with Xbox whatsoever. I smell desperateness

      • SmashFinale

        I didn’t like the whole anti-microsoft thing.
        Honestly, it DOES feel weird to put KH on Microsoft platforms. But then again, it feels weird to play on Nintendo platforms as well.
        But KH3 works for Wii U because of it’s “child-friendly tone” that most “hardcore gamers” would usually dub “too kiddy” (which is all bs).

        Also, i don’t want any reason to buy a PS4.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          I’m only anti because they’ve never had a single game on an xbox console. That’s it ^w^

          • Fred

            And people are complaining that Bayonetta 2 is coming to Wii U. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            I never said i was a fan of that choice >.> I think it’s dumb that it’s not multiplat

          • Fred

            I have to disagree with you on BOTH accounts. Bayonetta came to Wii U because NINTENDO PAID and Kingdom Hearts isn’t coming because Nintendo DIDN’T pay and Square doesn’t think they’ll make money putting it on Wii U (unfortunately they’re probably right)

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            Sure. I’ll agree with that. Nintendo needs to shell out more money to get more devs on their system. Period

          • Fred

            I actually don’t agree with that statement. I’d rather they use the money to either buy or build new studios. If they’re going to spend on specific games (which I’d rather they didn’t) at least do it right like they did with W101 and Bayonetta 2 in that they have them as exclusives. If they spend money to get Kingom Hearts it doesn’t convice people to buy a Wii U because they can get it on 2 other systems

          • C.S. Bailey

            They can have all the new studios they want, it won’t change what they make. IF for some odd reason, MS sold everything game/Xbox related to Nintendo, the first thing we’d see wouldn’t be a super HD collection of Halo games, it would be Master Chief in SSB and Mario Kart, and the announcers voice would be changed to Cortana.

          • Fred

            I disagree. I think they have lots more games they’d like to make, but they just don’t have the resources. I think if they had the resources (more studios) we’d see just as much Mario (and yes certainly a little more), but also more other stuff more games like X, Kid Icarus Uprising, Metriod, Star Fox, and more new IP. The main reason we’re getting so much of the BIG stuff is they’re scared and Mario, Zelda, and DK have proven to always sell. New Super Mario Bros sells like nobody’s business Mario Kart Sales like nobody’s business so they’re getting those on the Wii U because they think it’ll sell consoles for them.

          • C.S. Bailey

            Notice I said the first thing we would get would be those games, not all we would get? Don’t bring up what’s been “proven” to sell, if that were the case we’d have a true Pokemon console game by now. The only reason they won’t pay for exclusives is the fact that they’re a Japanese company, and that would be a sign of admitting defeat.

          • Fred

            The first thing we would get is those games? We’re already getting those games, this would allow other games on top of “those games”.They do pay for exclusives, see Bayonetta 2 and Wonderful 101, they just don’t do it as often as you and I want them to. And paying for a port of KH3 is not near as smart of a business decision as paying for an exclusive.

          • C.S. Bailey

            We’re getting SSB and MK with Master Chief and Cortana?????

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            hrm… I think that’s a good point. I guess that’s sorta what I meant, I just said it wrong

          • Fred

            So do you think Square could actually make money on a Wii U version of KH3? Cause if you do (and I certainly don’t claim to have a clue; I’ve never played a KH game) then that’s how you should try to convince them. In my mind something like the petition at least shows Square Enix a list of people that want it (even if they don’t know how many would actually buy it) where saying Nintendo deserves it more than Xbox doesn’t tell them they’ll make any money it just shows a sense of entitlement.

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            Well my main argument is they’ve been making plenty of money from the series on Nintendo platforms already, and people have been waiting for KH3 for a long time. why put one of the biggest games of your huge franchise on a brand new family of consoles, when they’ve been selling well to the crowd that buys Nintendo systems. JRPGs seem more at home on Nintendo than Xbox, seeing Japanese sales of Xbox 360 tend to prove this, and the number of JRPGs for each family do as well.

            So to answer your question, yes. I think they could.

          • Fred

            It’s not a question of how the Wii U version will sell compared to Xbone (we all know Microsoft probably paid for the port so porting to Xbone is a no brainer for Square Enix) It’s simple economics, if it will sell enough to make justify the costs of porting it then yes they should and if it won’t then no they shouldn’t.
            Assuming you’re right and it would sell well enough, then it’s about showing them it will be worth it (think project rainfall)

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            I dont know how much it would cost to port it, so I can’t answer that question

          • blzzy_gie

            And in what way is it any different for Nintendo to ” WAVE ITS BIG GREASY C-” than it is for MS ?.

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            It’s different because they’re not doing that at all

          • BIG Franky

            I agree… KH3 is on XB1 because MSFT paid to get it on the system… Nintendo should be smart enough to do the same… but they wont… and it drives me NUTS… the gamign industry has changed (whether we like it or not), Nintendo has to change as well…. just like they should PAY to get Minecraft on the Wii U… a game like that WOULD move units…. but they refuse. so frustrating….

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            yeah… They have billions. They need to start using them. It’s their problem there’s no third party on the console, and because they’ve waited so long, the price has no doubt gone up because of the sales

          • Fred

            I disagree. I don’t want them to pay for ports like KH3 or even Minecraft (although minecraft on Wii U makes a lot of sense with the touchscreen) I want them to buy studios and finance exclusives like they did with Retro and Bayonetta 2. Paying for ports is a terrible business model (expecially if you have the least powerful system and will therefore likely get the worst port) as it doesn’t encourage people to buy your system and only gives you a small sales increase. At least financing games makes you the only system with the game and if you have enough you can start making it justifiable for people to buy your system.
            Yes Bayonetta has a small following (it only sold 2 million copies) but at least they are a strong following. Those that love it really love it and just might buy a Wii U to be able to play the sequel. Plus everyone that buys a copy gives their money to Nintendo none of them money goes to Sony or Microsoft.

          • LJay

            Bayo 2 exsists because Nintendo paid for the development of it-they wouldnt have made it had Nintendo not helped ,microsoft paid for it to get ported,which imo is a little bit different not much but hey..

          • Fred

            Yes, that’s correct. What’s your point?

          • DragonSilths

            Nope, Square is afraid KH3 will flop when competing with their better half, aka Monolith Soft and X.

          • Fred

            So for whatever reason, Square doesn’t think it will sell well on Wii U. (and as for your reason, I can’t argue with it I know I’m going to buy X and I’m not going to buy KH3). If they don’t think they’ll make money on a Wii U version (or at least break even) they shouldn’t do it. When companies make decisions that lose money for them they die and we don’t want these guys to die.

          • DragonSilths

            But what is the logic behind the Xbox One getting it? It wont sell well on that, KH has always been Nintendo and Sony.

          • Fred

            It will sell just fine on the. The logic is, right or wrong (personally I think it’s bad business) Microsoft loves to buy ports. There’s a reason why they lose money on video games

          • matthew garcia

            That’s about the only game people want outside of the wii u fanbase. Still won’t sell more consoles though

          • Jeffery02

            Nintendo getting Bayonetta 2 is because of Nintendo publishing it. Bayonetta 2 would NOT have happened otherwise. KH3 is coming regardless and the Xbone version will probably bomb. Square Enix probably put it on the Xbone because at the time of the announcement, the Xbone was hyped more than any other system. They didn’t foresee the PS4 beating the Xbone by this much. Similar situations, but COMPLETELY different reasons and justifications.

            That said though, you are right. There is no use complaining about it. Whether the Xbone gets it or not probably wouldn’t change anything for the Wii U. Main series games have all been on PS only so far and all spin-offs have started on Nintendo portables so far. So I didn’t see Nintendo getting KH3 anyway, even though I was hopeful.

          • Fred

            Oh I understand why Nintendo is getting Bayonetta 2, they financed it. And I actually agree with something they’re doing. It’s worth the money to finance a game if you’re the only one getting it. It’s not worth it to pay for KH3 though because they won’t be the only ones getting it. As it sits if you want Bayonetta 2 you HAVE to buy it on Wii U. So if you want it and you have a Wii U Nintendo gets your money because you can’t buy it on another system, but if you want it and don’t have a Wii U then Nintendo still gets your money (assuming you want it badly enough to buy a new console to get it) If Nintendo were to pull a Microsoft and pay for a port of KH3, they wouldn’t be the only ones getting it and most of the sales would go to PS4 and Xbone. Think about it, if I own a Wii U and either of the other systems and I want KH3 Nintendo won’t get my money (the Wii U wouldn’t get the best version) and if I want KH3 and I don’t have a Wii U they might sell a system for me to get it, but I might get a different system. It’s just not worth it to pay for a port. If you’re going to pay, finance the game and get exclusivity.
            I’d actually rather they just bought some more studios/publishers so that we could get more quantity and more variety or games, but I’ll take financing games with a strong following (even if Bayonetta’s following is kind of small, those that like it really like it a lot and I’d bet a bunch of them will buy a Wii U for it) over paying for a port any day of the week.

          • Deadpool U

            Difference being if it wasn’t for Nintendo Bayonetta 2 wouldn’t even exist.

          • Fred

            Yes, that’s what it means when I said that Nintendo financed it. If means that without Nintendo they wouldn’t have been able to afford to make it. What’s your point?

          KH3 has been on three Nintendo platforms thus far.

          The M-soft hate comes their western, FPS-only blow ‘em up-shoot ‘em up image.

          And the fact that they are very greedy.

          I’m assuming you own an Xbox One by that line.

          Why you wouldn’t want to buy the seemingly better of the two powerhouse consoles is beyond me.

          • SmashFinale

            Because there is nothing of interest coming EXCLUSIVELY to PS4 that i would want. After PS2 i just lost interest in Sony Products…

          • abe

            the PS3 was stronger than the 360 yet the 360 won out the two by that i mean was the lead platform on almost every multiplatform title which is why a lot had troubles on ps3.

            The point is which is more powerful means nothing on similar systems. People claimed by the end of its life the ps3 will have games that was simply not possible on the slower 360 but it didn’t happen. the same is true with the PS4 and One. The specs are close enough for it to not matter. Resolution is far less important than texture quality, Frames Per Second or gameplay

          • bizzy gie

            360 was only better because PS3 was harder to develop for.

            Both platforms are very easy to develop for now so the power difference is more significant.

          • bizzy gie

            But you stated that you wouldn’t want a REASON to buy PS4.

            Meaning that you wouldn’t want some awesome AAA exclusive to be on platform because then that’d give a reason to buy the platform.

            That’s what makes me think you sit in the Xbox camp.

            That and the fact that you stated that you don’t like the MS hate.

          • SmashFinale

            The thing is… I don’t see ANY AAA exclusives that I and only I would want. And i don’t like the MS hate because Microsoft has corrected almost all mistakes they made for XBO and i don’t see any real reason to truly show hate for the system.

          • bizzy gie

            But if you did, then you’d hate it because it’d give you a reason to buy PS4?

            You don’t want to want a PS4?

            MS is very greed and it shows with their gaming division.

            In return, they get hate.

          • SmashFinale

            And Sony only appeals to their boisterous, venomous fanbase while pretending to be “for the gamer” when they do similar things and kick others while they are down.

          • bizzy gie

            Sony showering their fans with free stuff doesn’t seem like the same thing as MS making people pay for things that should be free.

          • blzzy_gie

            I didn’t know you trolled the Nintendo section with your anti MS rubbish, thought the Xbox One and PS4 section would of been enough for you.

      • Lophs

        How is desperate? It makes perfect business sense. SquareEnix has put all 3 of the last gen Final Fantasy games on Xbox 360 even though there was no history on Xbox before. Also FF XV will be on the xbox one too. KH is probably the same audience that buys Final fantasy games so no surprise.

    • Quicksilver88

      I sooooo agree…..I mean M$ can’t even sell 1mil consoles per generation in Japan. They have totally failed there forever. So why release JrPG on the system? What JRPG has ever done well on xbox? Sony systems are a no brainer, and 3DS and Wii both have done well with JRPG….why not give WiiU a shot? DeusEX was excellent and would have sold much better if released in May as expected. Hopefully Child of Light does well on eShop and maybe we will see more RPG content on WiiU.

    • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

      Agreed

    • abe

      i’ve bought most of the JRPG’s on the 360 (bar the FF13 series) as i did with Wii and 3DS. so there are sales there. the only reason the JRPG stopped appearing on 360 is its poor sales in japan. the reverse is true for 3ds and i hope will be also true for Wii U

  • NintendoNoob

    Put a “Why” in front of the sentence and get rid of the word “Released”
    That’s what I think

    meh I’d rather see final fantasy XV on wii u because I JUST want the main series back on nintendo platforms!!! Please? maybe?

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      I’d like to see that too. My guess is if we see one, we’ll see the other

    • Ducked

      I’d love to see FFXV on Wii U as well, but the last FF game on a Nintendo home console was VI

      • Brandon

        what? I can dream can I? square just hates wii u. even with dragon quest X on wii u the only version they are considering releasing west is the pc version….. -__-

        • Ducked

          I mean it’s possible..dreaming doesn’t hurt.

        will do! Thanks :D

    • Ducked

      Signed. This is actually the third one I’ve seen since E3. Hopefully these petitions will send a message to Square.

      • abe

        nintendo says the pay no attention to petitions as they don’t transfer to sales i suspect Square think the same. otherwise the Wii u would have Tomb Raider.
        a system simular to kickstarter might be a solution. where we “pre order” a wii u port. if enough people sign up showing these peopl HAVE put money down they’ll make a Wii u version”

        • Ducked

          Tomb Raider has a much different audience then Kingdom Hearts

    • Jon

      i don’t understand how this will help…. how is 1k signatures going to make them want to put it on the Wii U? 200k maybe

    • Arthur Jarret

      and current attempts include shutting down zoos that treat animals terribly.

      I hope you don’t mind me thinking that getting a game to a specific platform is a bit unimportant in comparisson.

  • David Horowitz

    If it’s being released on Xbox One, it should be released on the Wii U, too.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      that’s what I thought

    • abe

      pretty sure it a sale X specs issue (IF they plan on using the power difference between Wii U and Xbox one)

  • Snake Eater

    I think with all the games that were on Nintendo systems it should come to Wii U

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      which others, for example?

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          oh whoops! I thought you meant something else :P I agree

        • matthew garcia

          Wii u sales like crap compared to the 3ds

          • Snake Eater

            There are always hardships before things get better

          • matthew garcia

            Well they have to get better first before square will release the game for it.square will not risk it while it’s still selling horribly. Wii u is running out of time

          • Snake Eater

            True but there is still time and that will hopefully be enough

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    If it by chance does make it to the Wii U, it’ll probably be at a later date.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      as long as it gets there

    • matthew garcia

      I believe kh 3 will never see the light on wii u.

      • Snake Eater

        Don’t be pessimistic, they’re not EA

        • Ace J

          you’re right, they are not EA. but they are also part of the group of developers that hasn’t been developing for the wii u recently.

        • matthew garcia

          With the shitty deus ex sales I’m sure they wont. They took final fantasy away for a reason also from nintendo consoles.

          • Snake Eater

            I don’t like it when the company base their thoughts on a game they took stuff out of and released later then the original game release

          • matthew garcia

            Actually deus ex was enhanced with the controller. Look it up it was pretty good. Still sold like crap though

          • Snake Eater

            almost 2 years after the original release

          • matthew garcia

            Wii should not have had to rely on old ports to begin with. If they would not have rushed the wii u a year early the wii u would have been in a better spot. Imagine mario 3d world as a launch title. It’s nintendo mistake

          • nexxus6

            What also killed Deus Ex sales was that it was delayed nearly half a year from when it was originally supposed to launch. People were interested and then it got delayed and no release date was ever given until couple weeks before it did drop. I remember calling local Gamestops in the summer and they didn’t even have the game in their database, and didn’t believe that it was announced for the WiiU. When it did finally get released, it was almost next to impossible to find the physical copy in stores. If a game isn’t on the shelf, don’t expect it to sell well. Finally, Deus Ex has been available on other consoles for quite some time before coming to WiiU, which doesn’t help sales. I had to order my copy through BestBuy.com and I am glad I did because it is a fabulous game. However, Square did a horrible job on how they handled the release and marketing of Deus Ex Director’s Cut.

          • matthew garcia

            Everything on wii u gets delayed. Like I said nintendo made the mistake of launching wii u to early they had to rely on old ports. If they would have waited they would of had mario 3d world as a launch title

          • classicgamer20

            You might want to read up on some video game history. Square didn’t take Final Fantasy away from Nintendo because of sales they took it away because Nintendo made the N64 cartridge based which made producing games more expensive . So Square decided to make Final Fantasy on Sony consoles because it was cheaper.

          • matthew garcia

            Lol I knew that. It was nintendo stupid mistakes that lost them final fantasy. The cutscenes and audio would not have worked well on 64. Nintendo made the same mistake with the mini disk on gamecube. Now they did it again with the controller. Nobody wants to take the time with it. Cool idea though

          • SP-937-215

            I don’t think it was about the money as much as it was about the vision that Squaresoft had for a vast, deep, cinematic experience. That was absolutely impossible to pull off on Nintendo 64. Even using the maximum available cartridge size and high compression, FF7 would span between 10-20 cartridges. But even this is a gross underestimate, because a majority of the in-game locations, plus the world map would have to be included in each N64 cart. And the carts are not hot-swappable, so they would require external memory cards and a complete reboot of the system at every %5 game progress mark, minimum. So, even if the carts were free the technical hurdles are ridiculous.

  • sterlingfoxhill
  • LevenThumps

    Should KH3 be on WiiU: Absolutely!
    Will KH3 be on WiiU: Only time will tell. I personally don’t think Square Enix will put it on WiiU unless sales start to rise, even though Nintendo has a Kingdom Hearts fanbase already established on its handheld consoles.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      yeah, I dunno how likely it will be, but here’s hoping!

    • Jon Turner

      That’s exactly what I’m saying. More sales = the better our chances of getting this game on WiiU.

      • Brandon

        hey idiot sales is not the problem.

    • Brandon

      sales start to rise? nope! nope! nope! sales are not the problem! japanese games sell like shit on xbox yet square likes xb1 more than wii u. plus square STILL hates nintendo nowadays even dragon quest X will be localized……. but only for pc. >__<

  • Ducked

    Thanks Zorpix for writing on this!

    I believe Square Enix is waiting to see if Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros helps sell Wii U’s. That way they’re know how big the install base is if its worth brining it. I do hope Square and Nintendo are talking about this! Would I buy this game on Wii U? Easy YES!! The gamepad could become in good use for customizing commands, building gummi blocks, etc.

    Another great article in the Zorpix den! Keep it up! :)

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      gamepad could be used for a lot of things. I’m tired of scrolling through menus. Give us the option of gamepad input!

      Thanks for the idea :3

      • Ducked

        Menu’s on gamepad would be awesome, that’s why I want more JRPG’s on the Wii U!

        • MerryBlind .

          I want more RPGs on Wii U, period. Not just JRPG. The GamePad is such a perfect fit for interface-heavy games, and inventory management, and organization (Strategy games would be great too) etc.

          An exclusive Wii U Action-RPG ala Diablo, Path of Exile, Dark Alliance, etc. would be absolutely amazing. Thought it’s probably never going to happen.

          • Ducked

            I agree, although I do prefer JRPG’s. I’d sure love to see Elder Scrolls come to the Wii U

          • MerryBlind .

            Yeah that would be great.

          • Brandon

            Now thats definitely not coming to the wii u.

          • Ducked

            Unless they really changed there mind on the Wii U, but you’re right

          • Quicksilver88

            You are not the first to say this….maybe it will happen as the game style is common enough….the idea of 4 players with a DM playing on the gamepad would be awesome, but so to would async co-op. i sooo wish I could get a skyrim or dragon age as they would rock the gamepad customized interfaces and mapping. Don’t know if you have played Etrian Oddessy on ds/3ds but something like that on WiiU where you get to draw maps while exploring would be sweet…..Indies give me the most hope buy maybe Nintendo will suprise us with SmtxFE and X.

          • Ryan F

            Did you play Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U?

          • MerryBlind .

            No I haven’t; I still have to finish the first one hahaha. I have 1 and 2 just waiting for me on my Steam Library (damn Steam).

            Does it make good use of the GamePad on Wii U?

        • Rinslowe

          For that reason alone…

      • Ducked

        Saw this…

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          I’ve never understood why they dont do 3 player

          • Ducked

            Same here, it be great for missions. One plays as Sora, one as Donald, and one as Goofy.

        • abe

          man i wish that wasn’t SO fake

    • abe

      if it was coming to the older systems too i’d agree but since it’s on ps4/one. i suspect it wont come. even if it did it’d be a limited version which we wont buy seeing as the current plan is “dont buy hobbled ports” which leaves publishers thinking there is No audience on Wii U when there is

      • Ducked

        I don’t exactly agree, the game uses a cartoon shading. I think the Wii U can handle it. Even if the game is huge in size, if it takes more time for the Wii U, and if it came out later. It still be worth Square porting it if it makes money. There’s a big JRPG, Disney, and Kingdom Hearts fan in Wii U. If the Wii U is a huge success in Japan this year, then it only be foolish for Enix not to bring KH3 on Wii U

        • abe

          Very true but graphic style doesn’t mean how much resource it takes up. For example Cell shaded game with the dynamic black outs required more processing than realistic graphics. It depends on how well their engine is optimized.

          We’ll get versions of kingdom hearts if the Wii u picks up on Japan and the Japanese devs start making games for it. They’ll send them westward to plug release gaps ( like what is happening now with3DS) and when the Wii U gets a rep as an RPG console on the west other debs will try and jump on

    • Jon Turner

      That’s what I’m assuming as well. I think they want to see WiiU’s sales increase before taking KH3 to the system (something tells me we MIGHT get it on WiiU though.)

  • Elitepwnsface

    It makes for sense coming to the wii u then it does on the xbone. But i personally will play it on my ps4.

  • RyuNoHadouken

    who cares

  • MerryBlind .

    Well personally, I’d rather see it on PC, as that’s my go-to system for all multi-platform games, since it gets the best graphics of them all.

    However, I do believe KH really fits in with Nintendo ecosystem, and would be a great addition to its library.

    Also, all platforms that do end up getting KH3 should also have KH1+2 HD so that those who haven’t played the two games prior to 3 (like myself) could play them on their system of choice.

    So I say bring on Kingdom Hearts Trilogy to PS4, X1, WiiU, and PC.

    Everybody’s happy.

    • Arthur Jarret

      In that case, also add ports of 356/2 (or whatever that number was) days, RE:Coded and Dream Drop Distance in the trilogy box – as these cannot be played using the HD collections (it does offer the HD cutscenes of the two DS games with intermittent text, though)

  • disqus_QNIAqtNpHo

    YES PLEASE KHII WAS MY FAV PS2 GAME IT WAS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

  • David Trail

    100% yes… Nintendo fans like JRPGS. It would sell well on Wii U…

    PS4 and Xbox One are more for dude bros and casuals. They’ll rather be playing the next Cod/ Fifa/ Madden

    • matthew garcia

      Quit categorizing people in groups. Nintendo has always lacked rpgs. Xenonblade may be the best one they had in a while. Just cuz most people prefer play station over wii u doesn’t make them any less of a gamer. Obviously nintendo doesn’t appeal to everyone. Play station has always had the best rpgs. Chrono cross final fantasy 7 8 9 and 10 and tactics kingdom hearts xenogears suidoken persona demon souls. Snes had many good ones also

      • David Trail

        SNES had the best RPGs actually and Xenoblade was the best rpg of last gen.

        X and Shin Migami V Fire Emblem look way better than what the ps4 has to offer on the JRPGS front

        • matthew garcia

          Well we know ps4 will have kingdom hearts 3 and wii u probably won’t. Xenonblade is an amazing game. Lost odyssey on 360 was pretty good also.

          • David Trail

            X > Kingdom Hearts

            Plus Kingdom Hearts is no reason to own a ps4 as it is also on Xbox One

        • matthew garcia

          U should try western rpgs also like skyrim fallout and dragon age

          • David Trail

            I have played them all. I prefer JRPGS.

        • Dylan Clark

          actually skyrim was the best rpg of the last generation u dumbass

          • Leo

            Skyrim was the best? I beg to differ. I couldn’t even finish it. It’s so damn boring!

          • Dylan Clark

            one opinion against the millions of people who agree with me tho

          • David Trail

            No one will hardly agree with you about that lol!

          • Dylan Clark
          • David Trail

            Skyrim best rpg of last generation… You are a fool and we were talking about JRPGS lol!

          • matthew garcia

            To me Xenonblade seemed to have been influenced by Western rpgs with big open world’s and real time combat. That has always been a western rpg thing. U have to remember western rpgs came first with dungeon and dragons

    • greengecko007

      Is that why Playstation has been the main platform for JRPGs for generations?

      • Rinslowe

        Fair call. Sony has that area of third party JRPG’s in the bag. But Wii U should be and very well could be, according to the fanbase – exactly the same.
        Here’s hoping that both Japanese giants realise more of this in future, regarding both PS4 and Wii U.
        For an OCD RPG fan, this has me excited for PS4 – for that reason. And the anticipation of immersing in X later this year is peaking. Zelda next year (and I consider Zelda to be more in line with a please all “in a Nintendo kind of way” style) – but equally Japanese…

  • Gust

    I’ve said it before and I will say it again, nintendo fans deserve kingdom hearts 3 half of the kh series is on nintendo consoles

    • Ducked

      Egg-zactly!

      You’ve got the KH fanbase on Wii U, so now just bring it!

      • Trevor

        Good point. My sony fanboy roommate was surprised when I really wanted to play his Kingdom Hearts remix game. I was just like “of fucking course I wanna play this game.” (I was better than him and played it a lot more).

  • link2nintendo

    yes

  • RecheDiazrivarola

    please,please

  • Sycamore

    I hope that it will be announced for wii u as well. Kingdom hearts resonates with fans so strongly because it gives you the ability to revisit disney’s legacy and all of its wonderful worlds. It really is a work of art how the final fantasy characters and their own unique characters integrate so well within these worlds. This series should be accessible to everyone. Hopefully we will hear something further down the road, Nintendo is a “in the now” kind of company and probably wouldn’t announce a game which probably won’t see release until 2016. Fingers crossed!

  • Dylan Clark

    lololol kh3 is not coming to wii u its to graphically advanced for wii u and it can only be played on next gen consoles

    • DC777

      Lol yeah sure

  • mar laguna

    Not fair I’m a KH fan i bought every game of even if it’s sony or nintendo i woulden’t mind if it only came to ps4 but coming to xbox one it’s just to much Square enix hasen’t released any games for wii u except for deus human ant it’s not fair i Want KH i LOVE KH I WILL BUY KH ANYWAYS BUT I WANT ON WII U

  • Kidvizious

    Honestly, this article feels too amatuer…

    HERE COMES MICROSOFT WAVING ITS BIG GREASY C-

    *technical difficulties, please stand by*

    Ahem! Anyways, the next day…

    It just looks and feels really amatuer and like a writer that really is trying WAY too hard to be funny/clever but struggles to be.

    Anyways, OT, maybe Square Enix anticipates that the One will eventually outsell the Wii U? Although it’s going to take a very long time at the current rate both consoles are going at. I think Wii U will slightly beat Xbox One in the end but Nintendo fans have honestly proven to shun 3rd party. How can you blame Enix? Yes, Money did play a part. Perhaps they are looking at the sales of 3rd party games for Xbox One and Wii U? The Xbox One absolutely trumps the Wii U’s third party sales on a system that has roughly 2 million less users. What does that tell Enix? Think about that instead of having some conspiracy theory.

  • DC777

  • kayodoc

    Please, for the love of God release KH3 on WiiU. I’m a PC and WiiU gamer (best combo imo) and would hate to miss out on it. PS4 and XboxOne don’t offer me anything special that would warrant buying the console. High end PC gaming gives me my ultra high quality 3rd party games like BF3, and WiiU provides my favorite Nintendo franchises. PL

  • classicgamer20

    Another great Zorpix Den. While I’ve never played Kingdom Hearts myself I’d love to have some more JRPGs on the WiiU

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      its really great. you should try it if you get a chance

  • Brandon

    Its coming to ps4 because its where the series started(with playsation). Its coming to xbox because its easy to port over from ps4. The wii u is mostly likely strong enough to run the game, but the sales are definitly not. Even though its a little wierd that its coming to xbox it would be better off. Ps4 is the best spot for this game, especially since they had the hd remakes for ps3.

    • David Trail

      Wii U is selling pretty much the same as Xbox One?

    • Brandon

      yeah idiot like the xb1 is doing any better because it’s not. sqaure and nintendo just have bad blood with each other. :P

      • Brandon

        But it doesnt cost much to make on xbox or port it over since it utilizes the same architecture as ps4. Plus the xbox one sells 3rd party games alot better then the wii u

        • Brandon

          by that fucking logic kingdom hearts 1 & 2 hd should have came to the 360 because watch KH3 fucking sell like shit on xb1 THEN we’ll fucking talk. While I agree 3rd parties sell better on xbox. japanese games like kingdom hearts & other japanese games on xbox sell shitty. >=P

          • Brandon

            True japanese games sell bad on xbox, but its still not going to cost them much. Who knows it might sell decently. Ps4 is whats going to keep them up anyways.

          • Brandon

            not cost them much? hey idiot you do realize that this & ff XV are AAA titles so yes it does cost them money…. alot of fucking money.

          • Brandon

            Im not taliking about development for the game im talking about porting to xbox.

  • greengecko007

    Wow, I’m shocked. Normally I’m a big fan of Zorpix’s articles. They normally offer up pretty reasonable opinions and are lighthearted and fun reads. But this seems borderline fanboy. Why the obvious blows to Microsoft? It seems to me that they are aware that the Xbox brand hasn’t been well received in Japan and are looking to remedy that by having KH3, a highly anticipated JRPG, on their new platform.

    Maybe I’m just taking it the wrong way, but it seems weird to bash Microsoft for getting KH3 when telling other fanboys not to complain about Bayonetta 2 being a Wii U exclusive.

    • Zuxs13

      I agree with you a bit on it seems a bit hypocritical to bash this going to the Xbox, but the Bayonetta situation was a bit different, it was a game that was being made then got dropped by Sega, Nintendo came in and took the publishing role. KH have never been on Xbox, and now its magically on it even though it was still on the safe PS4 (safe because PS4 will actually sell in Japan).

      So in one case one company saves the game, and the other one company pays for it to be brought to their system so people in Japan might actually look at their console in the store.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      I’m not really trying to bash Microsoft. I’m just saying that it’s very weird that they’re getting Kingdom Hearts for the first time. I think you might’ve read it a bit wrong. I’m actually considering getting an XBO.

      • greengecko007

        I’ve never seen you be unreasonable before or openly bash Microsoft, so I was a little surprised. It seemed out of place to me like maybe it was done to get the fanboys to like the article. That whole paragraph seems very unwarranted.

        But there’s no hard feelings (hopefully). I still enjoyed the rest of the article.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          None at all!

          Yeah, it was a bit out of character. I guess I’m a little miffed that I have to buy another console to play KH3, but to be honest, that console will probably be an XBO.

          I do have an anti-micro bias for my own personal reasons. For gaming, not operating systems. But this is not it. There’s nothing wrong with getting games for your console. I was just more surprised/confused that they got Kingdom Hearts now, as opposed to earlier

  • CyanideInsanity

    I’d love to see it on wii u and pc. Hell, I’d love to see as many third party games be available on every appropriate platform as possible.

    People shouldn’t be shunned for preferring a different console.

    I’d rather have a Wii U HD collection of all previous KH titles. Even the DS and 3DS titles could be ported over, thanks to the touch screen on the Gamepad. Maybe if that does well then KH3 could be ported too.

    I really luv ur blogs… Zorpix… the’re fun and interesting at the Same Time!!!

    Nice Job :D

      thank you :3 I do my best!

  • Miles “Tails” Prower

    I really hope this game comes to Wii u. It would save some of us some money, but we shouldn’t get our hopes up to high. Should we?

  • companyoflosers

    theyve had other smaller KH games on ds and 3ds. aside from the directX11 thing, which has workarounds, i dont see why not. it could definitely be a way to boost wii u sales because it fits withing the wii u’s demographic as well as attracts quite a few people who are outside it, effectively expanding the demographic. it would only take just one or two good games that appeal to the right people to push more people over getting a wii u to the point where its a decently selling console that other devs will want to make games for. the only problem is no developer wants to be the one to take that risk for the sake of the wii u and other developers when its their ass on the line. plus why help others out for no garanteed profit right? anyways thats their way of seeing it. i just wish someone would get over it and just take the plunge so we can all enjoy the wii u for what it is.

  • steveb944

    YES YES YES!! I would love KH3 on Wii U. But we have to remember that the series has only been on portable Nintendo consoles, and the main installments to the story line have been only on PlayStation (excluding Dream Drop Distance which may be a necessary installment). I hate that MS just threw money in and got the game for no good reason, I wish Nintendo would throw in some money for it.

    If it doesn’t come to Wii U I’ll be making Sony’s pockets deeper, deff not Microsoft unless they start giving away XB1s with PC purchases.

    • Arthur Jarret

      Chain of memories is a pretty vital part of the story (without it, you won’t understand half of II) – and originally saw release on GBA. Of course, it got remade for PS2, but wasn’t even released in europe until 1.5HD appeared. (and as late as 2012 in the US, I think)

  • Sheiky Baby

    This article is the epitome of what should open the eyes of all gamers out there. KH3 not coming to Wii U is straight up disgusting, and it an odd way makes sense for Nintendo to say F YOU to developers out there. It’s funny how Nintendo is convinient to them for sales, but as soon as Ninty struggles, they’re just like “Oh, what’s nintendo?!?!”. I’m so glad in sticking to PC and Wii U this generation. F their senseless shooters.

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    It should but it won’t. It happens.

  • Leo

    “ruin their otherwise good relationship”? Seriously! Nintendo-Square relationship has been shit since 1996!

    • Brandon

      as a n64 fan I agree nobody likes n64, except me!

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      KH has been doing fine on DS. they also collaborated on Mario basketball. I’d say it hasn’t been that bad

      • Brandon

        oh it has been bad dude. :P

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          please elaborate

          • Brandon

            the only version square is considering localizing is the fucking pc version? >=( plus the crystal chronicles games suck! >=(

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            version of…

          • Brandon

            dragon quest X idiot! forgot to fucking put that in!

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            ah. Yeah that sucks, but I hadn’t heard much from DQX coming westward at all.

          • Brandon

            people thinks it install base when “I” think its square being like bethesda or like any other western dev: they want wii u to fail!

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            Eh… I wouldn’t say anyone besides EA wants the Wii U to fail.

  • DragonSilths

    Should it? Yes. Will it…nope. Square doesn’t want to compete with their better half, Monolith Soft and X. Frankly I don’t give a shit about Kingdom Hearts anyway so it doesn’t bother me one way or the other.

  • GABRIEL GARCIA
  • Igor

    Should Wii U cease to exist? Yes.

  • C.S. Bailey

    “Dream about Squaredropping the dough to go the distance with Nintendo?”
    Yeah, it’s a dream alright, because for that to happen NINTENDO would have to be the one dropping dough.
    When Nintendo starts paying for more third party games, they will come.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      I was just trying to make a Dream Dream Distance pun :P

  • Görk

    The more i follow this page, the more i believe it is ran by a bunch of kids who have no idea how to a) be impartial b) write news c) not be total fanboys

    Here, let me help you out a litle bit.

    What could possibly be behind this move? The 2 parties involved in making this game are Square and Disney. Now let’s consider Disney… where are they super popular… what country could that be… China? Venezuela?… Could it be… USA? And what console is super popular there… lets see lets see… the Wii? The Wii U? Now how hard was that to deduce? Perhaps this is an attempt by square to bring jrpg’s to the americans in a package that doesn’t say “final fantasy” on it.

    Stop writing useless rage on this site and post a blog if all you can write about is your useless opinions. It makes perfectly good business sense to port it to the box.

  • Tryn2Help

    you all do know COD ghost received its first DLC today. Dont know why thats not on the front page.

  • Christian Schoff

    I’d give a third of my soul for this game to be on Wii U.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      I’d give half

      • Christian Schoff

        I’d be worried about not being able to enjoy the game as much as possible due to losing half. While I do believe that souls regenerate it would still take some time.

  • Peter YT

    No, it won’t sell on the wii u

  • Suraj Alexander

    Off topic but important. The upcoming game by ubisoft ,watchdogs, is probably the last chance we will have with ubisoft. They will decide wether to put more games on the wii u after these sales. Considering the lack of sales for other ubifot titles with sales coming upto 5% from the wii u we really need more peope to buy it. I am sitting here with the dedsec edition preorder so have done the max i can. plz buy the game guys

    • J_Joestar

      which is kinda BS when you realize they are delaying the WU version which pretty much guarantees it wont sell as well.

  • Rick van der Linde

    What’s with all the CAPITALS and exclamation!!!! marks!!!! o.O

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      I got excited :P

  • Flintinator

    I don’t think it should be on Wii U right now. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to see it on Wii U, but if it doesn’t sell enough, it will be proof for developers that the Wii U is not a good platform to release games on. I really hope that KHIII comes to Wii U when more people have bought the Wii U. I think that time comes when Smash Bros. is released.

    • J_Joestar

      Well as it looks right now, Smash will probably come out long before KHIII.
      Anyways, every 3rd party game like this would only help to push more people closer to the edge of actually getting the system, probably more so than a lot of the more dark hyper-realistic styled games.

      • Flintinator

        Kingdom Hearts has always been on playstation. It really depends on the Wii U owners whether the game would sell or not, because playstation fans will buy it on PS4 anyway.

        • J_Joestar

          and between every playstation version there has always been a handheld Nintendo version, so “always” may not be the best choice of words.
          There is a definite fanbase of the series on Nintendo consoles too.

          • Flintinator

            I was talking about the home console versions, the ones that are not spin-offs

          • J_Joestar

            They aren’t really spin-offs in the sense like Mario Kart is to normal Mario. They are just as integral to the overall plot as the console games.

            although then i guess it is a case of semantics on what you want to call them.

  • Arthur Jarret

    Apparently I know you in real life :P

    I don’t really care about Kingdom Hearts 3 on Wii U – I think they would have to scale it back to make it work on the Wii U’s different architecture – and it’s unlikely they would spend the time to levvy the console’s strengths to make it look on-par with the PS4 / XB1 version – which will cause ‘protest boycots’ by Wii U-only owners and multiplat owners would get the best looking version anyway (just look at the sales data for Wii U / PS4 / X❒1 titles)

    I think the Xbox One version is coming because the development for both platforms is so similar – making dual-platform development cheap to do, while the Wii U version would cost money.

    In my case, I’d get the PS4 version anyway. If the 1.5HD and 2.5HD editions were available on PS3 or Wii U, I’d choose the Wii U version – though.

    One of mine, combined with the post text:
    “Here’s looking at you, miiverse!”

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      yeah, it’d be nice if it was easier to adapt…

      • Arthur Jarret

        Unfortunately – it’s not. Luckily, Nintendo offers plenty of exclusives that are on-par with the other systems. Such as Mario Kart.

        Talking about mario kart – there will be a limited edition that includes a real-life blue shell of doom.

        Talking about the blue shell of doom – I found this in the comments section of eurogamer:

        CoD vs. Mario kart:

          oh wow… that’s intense and awesome XD

  • Zombie_Andrew

    I’m not a Kingdom Hearts fan, but feel this kind of game would suit the Wii U well as far as sales. Nintendo fans have proved time and time again that they don’t like games such as the Batman, COD, Assasin’s Creed and Splinter Cell Series, especially when you compare COD Ghosts sales on Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U which have similar sales in SKUs. I myself own a Wii U and would LOVE more third party games, but it’s now clear that Nintendo fans who claim to want hardcore third party titles don’t put their money where their mouth is, and if they do the percentage of Wii U users buying in comparison to only RECENTLY released on sales and it’s becoming understandable why third party publishers don’t bother with Wii U. Plus most Nintendo fans wont even dish out £180 on the premium version console in Argos. You “fans” that don’t support the Wii U, but CAN afford to make me sick.

    • Zombie_Andrew

      And don’t ANYONE DARE say “I’d buy it, but it doesn’t have any games” I made this to prove it has plenty to offer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2W9BrVEKMQ

      • Zombie_Andrew

        One day there was a console which tried as it may to get third party support, unfortunately the majority of console’s fans were fucktards who only wanted first party content saying “nayyy we don’t want generic games”, and so the third party publishers said goodbye and went to more third party hungry consoles, but yet the fans complained. The End

      • MerryBlind .

        Wow. Pretty damn great video. Good job!

        • Zombie_Andrew

          Thank you, please share this with people who say the Wii U doesn’t have any games, actually just share as much as you can :)

      • Rinslowe

        A lot great gaming hours in that video
        :)

        And even more in the making….

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    I like to read these articles. They’re great :D

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      thank you! :D I’ll keep makin them

  • Corvus_Firali

    Honestly I think it would be awesome if they release kingdom hearts on the Wii U I would definitely buy it. My only worry is that it’s been so long since we’ve seen a console kingdom hearts. Is it still relevant?

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      oh very. You should see the fanbase

      • Christian Schoff

        * you open a door and hear the fanbase roaring*

  • Green

    It would be fine to put it on Wii U, but they won’t due to low software sales =(

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      sadly :/

  • Nintenjoe82

    I doubt MS had to bribe Square or Disney to get this to happen. They have a good history of selling games on Xbox 360 so it makes sense for them to support X1. Look at Ubisoft and Activision, good sales on Wii = support for Wii U.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      eh… you could be right

  • NowhereStarr14

    Oh yeah, definitely, I’d get it for sure. Hopefully, we’ll see a turn-around, where it gets announced for the Wii U in the coming years, when the overall platform gets more popular with Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros. And they’ve got time, because I get the feeling we’re not seeing this game completed until late 2015.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      If not 2016

  • Xavier Lopez Chabelo

    THIS…

    But it wont happen so I will buy a PS4 to play this game

    • David Trail

      It’s on Xbox One as well

  • Mathew Vogt

    Playstation Only !

    • J_Joestar

      while not ideal, I would honestly prefer that to the current scenario at least.

  • Michael Jurado

    If people complained enough for freaking rayman legends to go multiplatform I demand the same thing happen to kingdom hearts III end of discussion.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      Well, that was more Ubisoft’s reaction to the Wii U sales

  • Dark_N11

    Might as well ask for KH3 on PS3 lol.

  • Spingebill Seeker of Darkness

    I think it should be on WiiU than on Xbone…..

    • Dark_N11

      SE want to take advantage of next gen hardware.

  • http://www.gamesobscura.com/ themizarkshow

    WiiU makes more sense, but I doubt it will happen. Sqeenix has dug themselves a big enough hole with the FF13 games and releasing a fairly niche series on a low-selling platform doesn’t help them except in the eyes of Nintendo fans.

    Unless Nintendo makes a deal like they have with Sega and Platinum, then it won’t happen.

  • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

    I hope it stays PS4 exclusive, so it will take advantage of the system power prowess. It won’t come to WiiU because by the time the game is done developing the WiiU won’t be viable in developing for games. WiiU only has less than 2 years before Nintendo scraps it.

  • Serria

    Everyone is complaining about Wii U software sales and that it’s the reason the Wii U won’t get titles such as KH3. But what everyone fails to realize is that KH3 would be a game changer for their sales. People WILL buy KH3 on the Wii U, plenty of people have already commented here how bad they want it on Wii U and would buy it, not to mention the countless petitions I’ve seen on the internet. Add them all together and you easily have 200,000+ people that want to buy this game on Wii U. That sounds like good sales to me. Now what if Nintendo packaged it up as a bundle? Put a snazzy KH design on the Gamepad or even included something like a Keyblade keychain or what not? People go for that stuff. They are drawn to it. It’s appealing. Regardless of their relationship in the past, SE could get on board with Nintendo if they just proved that there is a large enough gamer base that would buy the game on their system. More than half the people commenting here have begun to prove that point.

  • Elmo

    lol I love how these comments from the Nintendo fanboys are the exact same comments that Microsoft and Sony fans stated about Bayonetta 2. Now what was that saying that Nintendo fans used again? You’re a true fan of Kingdom Hearts? Buy a PS4 or Xbox One then.

  • Carlos

    I believe that Wii U architecture is too different from PS4/Xbox One.

  • Ducked

    Here’s a Kingdom Hearts survey for the future of the Kingdom Hearts series. If Wii U owners take this survey, and check the Wii U as there system, it could help bring KH3 to Wii U

    https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GP7XTLF

  • Christian Schoff

    The part about technical difficulties made me fall out of my chair from laughing.

  • Ben Newcomb

    Please, please put it on Wii U.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheMwgly Mwgly

    If square enix wants to pull their asses out of the pit, they definately should release kh3 on wiiu. it would be like a win win situation. nintendo would benefit, and square enix would benefit. and if they dont, i benefit. problem solved.

  • DaveDynamite1

    Hey this is the official survey by square Enix to help kingdom hearts. please do this survey to help the kingdom hearts franchise and make sure you make the wii u sound good. Also at he end of the survey give really good reasons why kingdom hearts series should come to wii u and how half the series is on nintendo consoles and how nintendo fans like kingdom hearts. This can help support kingdom hearts for wii u. Also what can help is if you put KH 3D to be your favorite kingdom hearts game. That’s my favorite. Lol thanks ^_^
