Kingdom Hearts HD Remakes May Come to Xbox One, PS4

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix is out this week for PlayStation 3 owners, rounding out Square Enix's high definition initiative for fans of the Disney mash-up series.

Fortunately, however, it looks like the compilations won't remain tied to Sony's last-gen console forever, as studio co-director Tai Yasue has said that the HD remakes may eventually come to new-gen hardware as well.


"When we first came up with the idea for Kingdom Hearts III, it was always 1.5, then 2.5 and we were always thinking about those three titles at the same time," he told IGN​. "I think [putting the games on PS4] is something we’ll explore. We understand what our players want, so we will explore the possibility. I’m not making any announcements though, we can’t make any announcements yet!"

When asked about a potential Xbox One version, Yasue added, "It’s a big old question. There’s a lot of things we need to think of when we consider consoles. One of them is what our players want, so we will definitely consider that. But there’s also schedule constraints, as we really don’t want the development of Kingdom Hearts III going later, so we have that to think about. We’ll consider all these things and come to a decision."

Will you pick up these games for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One if they eventually are made available? It sure would be a great way to prep Xbox-exclusive gamers before the release Kingdom Hearts III.
