Last week, Square Enix finally revealed that it would essentially take all the games of the Kingdom Hearts series to Nintendo Switch. Although this news was received with generally joy by many fans, the warning of this launch is that each title had the form of a version in the cloud, which means that games themselves could only be played through the Internet instead of natively on the switch. Fortunately, according to some recent comments from Square Enix, the company could still choose to take these Kingdom Hearts games to switch natively in the future.
In a new conversation with Nintendo Life, Ichiro Hazama de Square Enix, who works as a producer of the Kingdom Hearts Franchise Series, explained why the editor opted to take the games to Nintendo Switch in the form of cloud versions. In summary, Hazama said that the process of carrying the titles to Switch was more difficult than expected. However, using the cloud made this easier, which allowed Square Enix at least to bring the saga to Switch. For some time, our director Tetsuya Nomura had expressed his desire to deliver the Kingdom Hearts series to the players of Nintendo Switch, he had seen and heard the demand, so it was very considered a lot of this, he explained. Carrying these titles to Nintendo Switch turned out to be quite difficult for several reasons, including the hardware storage capacity, but we are excited to have made it a reality for the first time using cloud service.
However, despite using the cloud in this case, Hazama did not close the door completely to take the Kingdom Hearts games to Switch in a native format in the future. At this time, the production of a native version is indecisive, he said on the matter. We believe that the version in the cloud is currently the best way to deliver the Kingdom Heart series to the Nintendo Switch players, but we are always excited to listen to the comments of our fans and we want to thank them for all their support.
Are you someone who would like to see Square Enix portar natively all Kingdom Hearts games to Nintendo Switch at some point in the future? Or are you satisfied with versions in the cloud that have been released? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter in @ mooreman12.
