Kingdom Hearts III's Keyblade Will Unlock Infinite Possibilities in PS4 Sequel

Posted by Sammy Barker

The key to more gadgets than you can imagine

Fans of Square Enix’s bizarrely popular Disney and role-playing game mash-up Kingdom Hearts will know that the Keyblade has evolved a lot since the series’ inception. What started life as a mere weapon in the original release has also doubled as a vehicle in more recent entries – and series creator Tetsuya Nomura teases that there’s plenty more madness to come in Kingdom Hearts III.

“In the [latest] trailer, we saw [the Keyblade] transform into the shape of a gun, but there are also some other unbelievable transformations,” he told Famitsu magazine, as translated by Siliconera. “The other day, when we were checking it out, the staff member said ‘it turns into ____’ and I impulsively replied with, ‘Are you serious?’”

According to the developer, the beauty of the gimmick is that it has “infinite possibilities”. Where can we acquire one of these multipurpose devices? While we go in search of our own Keyblade, know that the PlayStation 4 sequel is in production concurrently with the recently announced Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. Knowing the Japanese publisher, though, it could still be ten years away.

i think it would have been awesome if they ported KH 1.5 and 2.5 to Vita, RPG's like this, are just soooo good on handhelds.

@Jaz007 I just hope Final Fantasy XV isn't a PS5 launch title. haha. Both would be the saddest news ever for me. Yet, sadly possible.

Except you forgot one thing. If KH3 comes out for the PS5, it certainly won't be a launch title. A release date wouldn't be announced until a year and a half into its cycle.

@ztpayne7 They already missed one console with Final Fantasy 15, they wouldn't miss a second. I don't think any respectable company is THAT reckless.

FF XV will be out on PS4, maybe a 2015 or 2016 release but it's more than likely going to be this gen. But yeah KH 3, which is the JRPG I'm really looking forward to, probably won't be out until 2019.

I have SOME hope that KH3 could come out on schedule along with FFXV. Square has faltered in the past, but they might not be able to afford another.
