We've been waiting for Kingdom Hearts III for a long time. But, because Nomura's main project is Versus XIII, development hasn't even started, and won't for a long while. Fortunately, for more reasons than one, last year Versus went into full development, and in the last Famitsu interview Nomura said they are prepping to present for information about Versus (probably at E3, or an earlier event; TGS is a bit far away to be prepping now). Optimistically, we might see Versus XIII out sometime in 2013. So, after waiting all these years, KH3 could start development next year. Still a while away, but it's great to know.
Now, we supposedly do have another KH title coming out after 3D and before KH3. Ya know, that one everyone calls Birth By Sleep Volume 2 because those words appeared at the end of Zero Points. E3 2010, I believe, was the last time the game between 3D and KH3 was mentioned; following the chronologically of the story though, we know from more recent interviews, KH3 is next. 3D sets the stage for the final battle against Xehanort. What if, though, the mystery game that we call BBSv2... doesn't exist anymore? E3 2010 was quite a long time ago, you'd think we'd hear something more about about this BBSv2 by now, right? But we haven't. Could it possibly have been cancelled? We know Square isn't afraid to veto what Nomura wants to do with the series. We learned just recently how Nomura wasn't allowed to end 3D how he planned to. This makes me think... maybe how he wanted to end 3D would of allowed BBSv2 to exist, but instead he was told no to the making of BBSv2, and in turn, that ending. This is a big "if", but it's possible, right?
Honestly, why hype up the inevitable KH3 right now for the last title with the 3rd-to-last title's release? It'd make sense with the 2nd-to-last title. We've known for a long time that Nomura is under pressure from both Disney and Square to make KH3, so maybe they made him change his gameplan. No actual proof, but it's not unlikely.Originally Posted by KH3D Announcement NA Press Release
What if KH3 is in pre-development? Like how Versus was not so long ago. Being worked on very slowly, but enough so that when Versus is done it can hop right into full development, and then released.
So, what I'm asking here in this thread, which would you rather the next game be: BBSv2 or KH3?
