The Kingdom Hearts news just keeps coming today! Following Nomura's appearance at D23, the series creator of Kingdom Hearts was interviewed by IGN where he mentioned some interesting information about the game.
First things first, Nomura mentions that there will be another character playable in Kingdom Hearts III, although he does not reveal who this character is. He also mentions that D-Links (introduced in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep) will not be present in KH3, citing that D-Link had been created only because it had not been possible at the time to have more than five party members:
Nomura also states (in a second article by IGN) while a Switch port of the game is possible, but the current focus for Squre Enix are the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 ports of the game. That being said, a Switch version isn't out of the question; neither is a Kingdom Hearts 1.5 +2.5 ReMIX for the Xbox One should the demand come from both Western and Eastern audiences. For right now, Nomura wants to keep all the focus on Kingdom Hearts III, and if you ask me, that's a wonderful idea.
