Last week, Kingdom Hearts 3 gambling director Tetsuya Nomura claimed that it would be possible to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch. However, according to information from the Game Informer writer Imran Khan, Square Enix and Nintendo stated that it would be "impossible" to end up Kingdom Hearts 3 for Nintendo's handheld / home console hybrid.
"I recently heard that there was a talk between Nintendo and Square Enix about what they could do with Kingdom Hearts 3 . It was considered impossible to get Kingdom Hearts 3 on the switch, "Khan said while coming to Kinda Funny Games Daily. He acknowledged that while Switch & # 39; s technically supports Unreal Engine 4, the engine that controls Kingdom Hearts 3 is that the game is ultimately too demanding for Switch's hardware.
Assuming that Khan's information is correct, owners may be disappointed to learn that Kingdom Hearts 3 does not come to the console. But Khan did not rule out the possibility that Square Enix brings the classic Kingdom Hearts game to Switch & # 39; instead of saying, "That's probably what they put on."
If Square Enix brings classic Kingdom Hearts games to Switch, then it will probably be in the form of Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far or HD Collection. These compilations collect the majority of Kingdom Hearts games that have been released to date and contain some original content to help bridge the gap between the originals and Kingdom Hearts 3 .
] However, it is too early to rule out the possibility of Kingdom Hearts 3 to come to the Switch at some point in some capacity. Although Nomura even said a Switch port was possible, and perhaps Square Enix could downgrade the game in some areas to make it work on Switch.
Regardless, in view of Switch's sales success and Kingdom Hearts history on Nintendo platforms, a Kingdom Hearts game of a kind that comes to Switch & # 39; s more like a "when" than "if."
Kingdom Hearts 3 is out now for PS4 and Xbox One.
