Some excerpts.

"To make the game's secret boss, they had debuggers test the boss fight. If the debuggers found a way to defeat the boss, they made adjustments to remove the method. This is why the boss is so strong. Nomura admits that even he can't defeat the boss."
"We were thinking about putting in other FF characters, but we ended up putting them in another project. This is a title that has yet to be announced, so I can't say who it is."
We won't take up KH3 until we've reached a certain target with FF Versus XIII. However, production has already started on the next entry in the series. As a plan, there's one title that we believe we can release this year. Also, we'd like to release one more next year or beyond. I believe this will have multiple main characters." Nomura also gave somewhat of a hint about Kingdom Hearts 3 here, stating "By the way, the scene where XX leaves off on a journey at the end of Blank Point is set to connect to KH3." Those who've played through Birth by Sleep presumably know what he's talking about.
"Amongst the fans, it seems that there are some who expect KH3 to be the end of the series. However, including KH3, the KH series that we're building up now is being made with the idea of it being part one of a larger series. It's somewhat like, Sora is the main character of KH, but presently, for part 1, we're building up the Xehanort Volume. Since KH1, the enemy has always been Xehanort, hasn't it?" Does this mean that KH3 will be the finale for the Xehanort volume? Responded Nomura, "That's what we're thinking. However, even if the Xehanort volume ends, there's still the possibility that a new adventure will begin for Sora."

A new adventure eh? I'd still like a playable scenario for Xehanort himself though. That would be nice. As for FF, we definitely need the old timers. Kaihedgie 22:13, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

Yea, they should put a whole bunch in to make up for the extreme laack of FF characters in KH 358/2 Days, KH Coded, and KH BbS. Maybe even show how Tidus, Selphie, and Wakka are now, maybe even with their own weapons from their original games. All in all, we want the ULTIMATE KINGDOM HEARTS GAME and we wnat, soon.

For those beggin' for a new game to be on the PS3/XBox 360, you're not asking for a game, you're asking for a glitter show. If you want a game, no better place to look than the Wii. If you're a gamer, that's where it needs to be. Why concern yourself with graphics when gameplay needs to be your main concern Kaihedgie 01:28, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

I can see why all of you have your reasons for your chosen consoles. But personally I see KH3 itself being released on PS3. Nomura himself is currently developing FF Versus 13 exclusively on PS3 (as far as I know) I don't see why they would change platforms when they can pull of something amazing on PS3. That's not to say something awesome couldn't be performed on the Wii (NO ONE BETTER START A FREAKING CONSOLE WAR). The thing is Square-Enix have already pulled off games which resemble playable CGI (FF XIII) and releasing on anything other than a PS3 would seem unfitting. Also I personally prefer it to be released on PS3, but like everything in life it is a matter of personal opinion but I'd wager it appearing on PS3 it's the most likely.
