Tetsuya Nomura has alluded to a long-awaited return of Kingdoms Hearts to consoles, according to an interview with Game Informer as originally reported by Kingdom Hearts Ultimania.
The series director said he felt "it's about time" that the Square-Disney co-developed series should go back to its console roots.
When speaking about the current direction of the series, Nomura explained; "The PS Vita is definitely a powerful device that is very interesting, but because of its high power, there isn't much of a difference with a console. So even if we were to make a game, we would have to be very careful about how to create it for that device.
"I also feel that it's about time that Kingdom Hearts should go back to being on a console."
The interview also discussed Nomura's interest in HD remakes and the possibility of the series appearing on other consoles.
"I do have an interest in HD versions, and I’m currently researching them. If it is possible, I would like to do something about the series being spread over so many different consoles, too. I am thinking a lot about the future."
When asked about his hints in other recent interviews of Dream Drop Distance being the last game before Kingdom Hearts III, Nomura shed some light on the rumours.
"I’m not able to disclose any information on what’s coming next or any other future plans, but you may be able to find a hint if you play through Dream Drop Distance to the very end."
