Square Enix Hasn’t Ruled Out First Kingdom Hearts Games for PS4 and Xbox One

By   /   Dec 2, 2014

Overhauled versions of the first Kingdom Hearts games are still on the table for a potential release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Speaking with IGN, co-director of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts III Tai Yasue explained that Square Enix is not ruling out the titles for the new consoles.

He also revealed that plans for HD 1.5 and 2.5 Remix were immediately planned when the studio was discussing development on Kingdom Hearts III.

“When we first came up with the idea for Kingdom Hearts III, it was always 1.5, then 2.5 and we were always thinking about those three titles at the same time,” he explains. “I think [putting the games on PS4] is something we’ll explore.

We understand what our players want, so we will explore the possibility. I’m not making any announcements though, we can’t make any announcements yet!”

Between the two consoles, the Xbox platform is still missing the earlier releases and so is Square Enix also planning on releasing the earlier installments for Microsoft’s consumer-base? Yasue did not give a definitive answer to this and cited “schedule constraints” as playing a major role.

“It’s a big old question,” he said. “There’s a lot of things we need to think of when we consider consoles.

One of them is what our players want, so we will definitely consider that. But there’s also schedule constraints, as we really don’t want the development of Kingdom Hearts III going later, so we have that to think about. We’ll consider all these things and come to a decision.”

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix is now available for purchase in North America and will release in the rest of the world later this week.
