Tetsuya Nomura, the creator of the Kingdom Hearts series, is open to adding some kind of DLC to Kingdom Hearts III.
Speaking in an interview with IGN, Nomura revealed that he’d be interested in adding more content on to the game after its launch, though there are no definite plans yet.
“In this day and age, most major titles do have some kind of content releases after their release,” Nomura said. “So since I considered Kingdom Hearts III to be one of those major titles, I do want to have something to add to your enjoyment of Kingdom Hearts III, so maybe you could continue to play a little longer than release. But we haven’t really thought of anything in detail yet.”
Nomura speculated that an accessories system, similar to the one that appeared in Kingdom Hearts II.8: Final Chapter Prologue, might be something that the team could add in after launch.
“We don’t have any customizability that you did have in 0.2 in Kingdom Hearts III,” Nomura said. “…The development team does need some kind of extra time on their hands to be able to do something like that… but I think there is potential to maybe do something like that after release.”
While Nomura didn’t mention any other possibilities, it would be interesting to see what kind of DLC could be added to the Kingdom Hearts games. Adding more worlds would be an interesting choice (though they’d likely have to fit in as offshoots of the main story). The already-released remixed versions of the original games have also brought some new content to the older games in the form of extra boss fights and challenges, and future Kingdom Hearts III DLC could take a similar form.
Kingdom Hearts III releases on January 29th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
