RUMOR: Tetsuya Nomura may be hinting at more Kingdom Hearts content for Switch

Here come the Smash rumors...

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is coming to the Switch in less than a month, marking the first time the series has appeared on the platform. It might not be a mainline Kingdom Hearts game, but it's better than nothing!

Fans have been hopeful that this game could be an entry point for more Kingdom Hearts games on Switch, and today there's a little glimmer of hope for the future. In an interview with a Nintendo Dream magazine, Kingdom Hearts creator
Tetsuya Nomura is asked about the franchise being on Switch. You can see the back-and-forth conversation below, as translated by Styster.

Interviewer: Nomura-san, there hasn't really been an opportunity to have a Kingdom Hearts title you worked on appear on a Nintendo system, has there?

Nomura: No. However, I think we'll be able to deliver something [to Nintendo fans] in the not-too-distant future...

Interviewer: How exciting! We are really looking forward to this!

Now there are a few things to point out. We don't have the full context of this interview, but we do know it's from the November 2020 issue. That means the interview most likely has some chatter about Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. It would be extremely odd for Nomura to tease something for Nintendo fans, and have that turn out to be Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. Also, there would be no point in being coy about the game if it were Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. That title was announced long ago, and fans have known it was coming for months and months now.

We still need to see the full interview to see the context of the discussion, but this little snippet does seem to tease something new on the way. Let's cross our fingers and toes for something big!

Thanks ton Dondom95 for the heads up!

Crossing my fingers that its actually The World Ends With You 2

they're only talking about kingdom hearts, also it's possible that the higher ups at square-enix denied a sequel to the world ends with you

Not sure what they’re talking about. Four Kingdom Hearts games prior to KH:MoM have appeared on Nintendo systems. I’m pretty sure Tetsuya Nomura worked on all of them in some capacity.

Yeah, been on the GBA, DS, and 3DS. Perhaps some further context would show they were talking about home consoles or just the Switch itself

i think they're talking about the main titles or even getting the kingdom hearts collections on the switch

I guess they were talking about mainline games? Well, all games are important to the ever confusing timeline, but you know what I mean.
I've played all four of those 'side' games and 3D was the only good one imho.
Maybe he's hinting at the three collections?
