Kingdom Hearts fans around the world expecting more entries in the series to come to the Switch should start lowering their expectations now, as Tetsuya Nomura has confirmed that there are no plans to bring any more games to Nintendo’s latest system, outside of the upcoming Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory.
The Kingdom Hearts series has mostly been associated with the PlayStation brand, but a few entries have made their way to Nintendo consoles in the past. A lot of Nintendo fans have been expecting the HD Kingdom Hearts collection to come to the Switch, as the system should be more than capable of running them.
It seems like the Switch isn’t quite up to the task of bringing Sora and his friends to life. According to Nintendo Enthusiast, Tetsuya Nomura stated that there are no specific plans to bring any more Kingdom Hearts games to the Switch. Square Enix had wanted to, but technical issues prevented it from happening.
Nomura did offer some hope for other Square Enix games, however, as he said that another game he is associated with could come to the Switch in the future. When taking Kingdom Hearts games out of the equation, this could refer to games like Final Fantasy VII Remake (though this seems unlikely due to technical issues), Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy Record Keeper, the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, Final Fantasy Type-0, the Dissidia series, the Parasite Eve series, or one of the older Final Fantasy games that hasn’t come to Switch yet. He also worked on Live A Live as a translator, and there are rumors that it could be receiving a modern remake in the future.
The Switch seems like the perfect console for more Kingdom Hearts games, but it’s clearly not meant to be. This is also bad news for fans of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as many fans hoped for Sora to come to the game as a DLC fighter, and that’s likely only going to happen if he’s promoting more Kingdom Hearts titles on the Switch. Though it may feel like a waste, maybe the rumored enhanced Switch that is coming in 2021 has the power to bring the Kingdom Hearts series to a portable system.
Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory will be released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 13, 2020.
