At a press event in Tokyo, Kingdom Hearts lead producer Tetsuya Nomura finally announced Kingdom Hearts III. Though the first two numbered entries were on the PlayStation 2, the third entry is moving to the Wii. Nomura explained:
With the success of the Wii, we thought it would be a better fit for Kingdom Hearts III. I am also very excited to use some of the motion controls for battles, especially for bosses. I think it will be very exciting and fun.
Details on the plot are scarce, but Nomura said that Riku and King Mickey would be taking center stage. Sora will show up, but he will not be the lead character. More details were promised for E3 in June, but unfortunately, there will not be a playable demo.
