XBOX PLEASE! we NEED KH on Xbox. I don't have any of those other fancy consoles, and my parents surely aren't thinking of buying another one.

who the f*ck voted PSP in 2012?!?!?! c'mon people PSP2 is releasing end of 2011 in jap, NO major games will release on the original PSP!

And no the PSP2 isnt a download only. It works on both PStore and flash cards for games, like little memory cards instead of a umd.

PSP 2011. it took me long enough to buy a PSP to play KH:BBS mostly. (yes, i am addicted to the series) buying a PSP2 will make buying the PSP3000 useless. But i know Square Enix, they release games on different console's to force people buying the console to play the game! and if KH3 will release on PS3, i have too buy that too!!!

 

I realy hope the PSP2 will delay and KHBBS: -V2- will release before that.

 

release date? if its before the PSP2 release i don't care.

All I know is if it is released on PSP2, I am not playing it. I already have plans to buy a 3DS eventually and I'm only getting it because I like my DS so much I know I will love the new gen. But my PSP is hardly ever used and I'm not going to throw away money for one KH game when I can just watch the cutscenes online. That said, I will be happy if it does come out for PSP. Then I'll have more use out of my PSP.

it probably will most likely realses in japan at the end of the year so maybe psp 2011 but if this is for america and other countrys then i would have to say psp 2012 could you be a little spasifice on the question like is it just the first realease date or the realease date in your country?

I see no reason why they would make it on any system other than the PSP. But if they did make it on another system that I don't have, I don't think I'd buy it.

 

2011 I think it'll come out. Say, November/December though, so we'll have to wait a few more months.

Just like for the PS2, if Square doesn't make PSP games anymore then it will be for the NGP, but as mentioned, Square began development right after BBS, and companies didn't have any models for the NGP at the time, so it's most likely PSP. It doesn't matter to me if it comes out on the PSP or NGP, since I always buy the newest handhelds/consoles that come out, plus if it comes out on the NGP and if there's a chance I don't buy it, I can always watch it on youtube instead of being like other people and always complaining how he/she can't buy a certain handheld or something for the new KH game because they don't have money yada yada yada.

 

Anyway, from the facts that have been stated, it should be on the PSP and released in 2012 since Square would have to show the KH game at TGS and/or Jump Festa.

Okay, this article doesn't make any sense.

 

"However, we lack an official announcement from Square regarding the game. So, this leaves us with two big questions-- what console, and when will it be released?"

 

Seriously??! If there is no official announcement for the game, then the only question is: "Is this really a game?"

I honestly don't think a Kingdom Hearts game will come to Xbox 360. I don't know why, it just doesn't FEEL right. KH is mainly a PlayStation for console games and Nintendo for handheld, and that's how I like it to be. Plus, Xbox fans always get what they want since Microsoft buys it for them (FFXIII, anyone?) so it's somewhat amusing to see them whine. Not to say that I'm completely against Xbox, but it's not my favorite console series, and Nintendo & PlayStation have it cornered with their awesome games and graphics. Xbox just has the internet -- which you have to pay for.

 

And I hope BBS2 comes to PSP, I don't want to buy the NGP until the price dies down seeing as it's probably going to be really costly, and I'm already saving up for a 3DS, PSP, and PS3. Plus, there would probably be an awesome BBs/BBS2 double pack, and that's a must have. But I'm more hyped for Dream Drop Disttance now, so BBS2 doesn't have my full attention 'ril I'm done playing 3D.

I mean no disrespect when I say this but ya'll need to be reallistic. There's no way the game is going to release this year. Nomura promised ONE game per year and people seem to forget that 2010 saw the release of BBS for America and Japan (plus recoded for Japan) and 2011 saw ReCoded for America and BBS FM for Japan (they could lump BBS FM and ReCoded together for the 2011 title). Considering DDD is on a brand new console and needs a new engine, and Nomura just said a couple of months ago that they are still choosing which Disney worlds to incorporate in the title DDD probably wont release until 2013. Which leaves a whole in the 2012 year. If they truly are using the same engine for BBS V2, the earliest they would release the title is January of 2012 for JAPAN and probably a few months after for America. And I am pretty sure this title will release for PSP1 because developing it for PSP2 ( or NGP) would mean the development of an entirely new engine for the new system and would put the game out of a yearly time frame cycle. We all know that Square Enix wouldnt port a PSP engine to its successor because they love to push graphical quality for their top titles, especially the KH teams who for each system they put one on the graphics are top knotch (although gameplay usually is also).

 

Oh and considering Final Fantasy Versus XIII will finally be released next year, considering that is the only console game announced which doesnt have a release date and it finally seems to be moving along, I think that potentially KH 3 would come after Dream Drop Distance in 2014 best case. Though it will probably release 2015 because Im pretty sure Nomura will want to make the game more awesome than Vs. XIII, and I can imagine true development (besides cutscenes) didnt start on that game until 2009 considering it was the first year to yield actual gameplay at TGS (albeit just running in fields behind closed doors seen only by the press). Which would give the game a 3 yr development cycle. If they start on KH 3 directly after they finish Vs. in 2012 3 yrs. later would be 2015. just my 2 cents

 

(Edit: That came out longer than I thought :) P.S. YOU GUYS SITE ROCKS!!!)

Aqua is in the Realm of Darkness... Ven is in a coma... And Terra has become Xehanort... How in the world is it even possible for a sequel to exist?

...i thought we'd get KH3D first, then BBS Vol 2 (IF it's even a game, people! dont count your chickens before they hatch)

i mean they already have playable demos, debut trailer, secret ending, a KH3D japanese website, and interviews about KH3D and NOTHING about BBS Vol 2 except for a extremely vague secret ending.

 

This being said...isnt it a bit obvious that KH3D is the next to be released?

of course i could be wrong but i stand strong with my idea.

Actually they dont have a playable demo for KH3D yet. The trailer that they showed at E3 was just called Kingdom Hearts 3D Demo because they hadnt come out with the actual name Dream Drop Distance yet. It was basically saying that this thing is still in the planning stages. I still think that 3D is a ways off though, cuz even looking at the released trailer, there is only maybe a minutes worth of actual footage of the game and the rest are logos, phrases, and ReCoded footage.

Anyone who's been following Kingdom Hearts footage since the first's release would know this is not the trailer of a game that is a year away.

Actually Nomura said ATLEAST one game per year not just only one per year, and considering that development on BBS2 probly started shortly after BBS was released then were looking at a summer 2011 release. Its already being developed for the PSP so theres no way itll make it onto the NGP.

As far as 3D goes, itll most likely see a 2012 release because despite the fact that they are still choosing worlds for the game doesn't mean they haven't started development on any other worlds. Take Notre Dame in the trailer for instance. The only thing that will slow the games development down would be the engine but since the trailer already showed gameplay, then the game is alot further along in development than expected.

As for KH3 itll probably see a late 2013/14 release. Development would probably be a lot quicker because of VSXIII since the gameplay is alot similar, and if you caught the latest gameplay trailer youll notice that the in-game events that effect the environment are a lot similar to KH2's reaction commands. What does this mean? It means that KH3 will most likely run on Versus' engine because of the gameplay similarities.

I for one can't wait to see what the cutscenes look like since they already look gorgeous in Versus :D
