Forums - Gaming Discussion - Will Kingdom Hearts Collections (or 3) ever come to Switch?

I'm just curious as to why I haven't heard rumblings of that. The series has been on Nintendo systems before, with a PS3-PS4 version of the collections meaning they could easily run on the Switch. 

3 is a trickier thing, but I have a argument to such questions as 'can it run'. 

...Is it like Persona mainline games where there is probably a exclusivity contract? Or is it....something else? 

...Or will I just see Sora in Deep Jungle in HD in the Jan/Fed 2020 direct.



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Both are long overdue. Hopefully SE gets some sense knocked into them.



It's pretty surprising we've not heard anything about Kingdom Hearts on Switch yet. Especially with all the Final Fantasy stuff that showed up. Maybe they just couldn't find a freed up porting studio yet (they have been exceptionally busy the past few years).

Based on this IGN interview, it seems they are trying to keep all the focus on the KHIII PS4/Xbox One for a bit and then start announcing other KH projects.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Kingdom hearts in on Xbox. Is/will be that is. So there is definitely no exclusive contract.
People always ask "why isn't persona on switch" yet I see none of them ask why isn't Megami Tensei on Playstation.
Plus the Persona spin offs are on the 3ds and striker is coming to switch.

So both arguments seem far-fetched.

Also the witcher 3 isn't really a good argument to "can it run". I imagine that took a lot of money/effort in getting that "miracle" to work. Plus it came out 4 years earlier with (i'm fairly sure) KH3 being far more impressive as far as graphics and actions go.

edit: Can it come to the switch? Sure. Will it? Probably.  Who knows when though Maybe late 2020?

A switch port for Kingdom Hearts collection could come maybe after the xbox version, but as for Kingdom Hearts 3 some information has been given in the past saying that square enix is interested in the idea but an ex gameinformer employee said that he got reports it wasn't working out getting the game running on switch, but square enix got Dragon Quest 11 working on switch which also runs on unreal engine, even though they had a good number of issues getting it onto switch but that was because it was an older version of unreal that switch couldn't support if i remember correctly. So anything is possible but i just don't know when, plus they might want to focus first on a possible PC port first if anything.

Witcher 3 is a miracle for sure, but they had a year and big budget I assume....

On different note PS4 version of KH3 is 900p and Xbox One version is 720p, UE4 games have hard time hitting good resolutions on consoles, I don't think Switch could hit 540p without dynamic res below that number but who knows? Just give it to a good team like Feral, QLOC or Saber.



Probably. Unless they can get 3 I dont see why they would waste their time with the collection release.



I would assume KH Collection would come to Switch at some point considering SE announced they were coming to Xbox. Same for KH3 maybe.



Also, wondering if we will ever see these games on PC.



Never played any of that that I recall. I typically avoid sequels unless I play the first games. So I'd prefer the collection over 3 to see what all the hype is about.
