'Kingdom Hearts 3'Latest Update: 'Kingdom Hearts 3' Director Designing Multiple Characters in 'Xenoblade Chronicles 2'
One of the more low-key announcements during Nintendo's E3 2017 presence was the release date for "Xenoblade Chronicles "2, which was revealed to be hitting store shelves during the Holiday 2017 period. It may not seem like it but the success of "Xenoblade Chronicles 2" on the Nintendo Switch will have a big influence over the future of the console and its games lineup.
"Kingdom Hearts 3" Director Designing Characters in "Xenoblade Chronicles 2"
GameRant reported that the "Xenoblade Chronicles X" was one of the few compelling reasons to own a Wii U. It is also an important RPG launch on a console that has already staked an early claim as the go-to device for the genre heading into late 2017 and beyond.
It appears that Nintendo is well aware of that, however, and has called in some big names to ensure that "Xenoblade Chronicles 2" will be a top-to-bottom and a finely crafted JRPG experience. Monolith Soft's E3 2017 trailer credited "Final Fantasy 7" Remake and "Kingdom Hearts 3" director Tetsuya Nomura with a role in character design, according to IGN.
Furthermore, they implied that the famed video game developer had a hand in a character named "Ira", or "Torna" in English. Recently, the "Xenoblade Chronicles 2" official Japanese Twitter account has revealed that Nomura's designs will play a much larger role as "Torna" is the name of an entire organization within the game.
"Kingdom Hearts 3" Release Date and Price
According to Isports Times, Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda recently stated that the game will launch "in the next three years or so", according to IsportsTimes. It also so means that even Square Enix doesn't have an actual release window planned for "Kingdom Hearts 3".
Furthermore, given the messy, prolonged history of "Kingdom Hearts 3" development, fans have to imagine that the game would need to be fully priced at $59.99. Hence, the price will have to be that high in order to have a chance of recuperating the development costs for Square Enix.
