Kingdom Hearts survey wants you to help shape the future of the franchise

Square Enix is asking fans to fill out a survey about the Kingdom Hearts games and what they’d like to see in the future.

by

A post on the Kingdom Hearts Facebook page has invited fans of the series to fill out a survey that will help “shape the future of Kingdom Hearts.”

In addition to asking for you basic information and gaming habits, the survey delves deep into your thoughts about the Kingdom Hearts games. It asks what your first Kingdom Hearts game was, why you bought it, what you like about the franchise, which is your favorite, how difficult you think it is, how you’d describe it to a friend, whether you’re more of a Square Enix or Disney fan, and much more.

It also seems that Square Enix is using the survey to help shape future special editions and preorder bonuses. There are a fair amount of questions about which games you ordered, if you preordered for any particular bonus, and what kind of preorder bonuses you’d like to see in new Kingdom Hearts games, a key chain Key Blade, statue, Manga, and many other options.

The survey will be open until March 14, 11:59pm PST.

In January, Square Enix denied rumors that Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV are coming out later this year, and given the early look we had at Kingdom Hearts III last year, it seems highly unlikely that the game has any chance of coming out before 2015.

I just hope this game doesn't have that 7 days thing at the beginning of kh2, no more mismatch characters like pirates of caribbean casts, no more sing along like atlantica kh2, also kinda wish each world visited contributes to the main plot at least a little to reduce fillers. Other than that, up to square enix. Honestly i like the kingdom hearts and disney characters more than the ff characters. Disney characters can sometimes be part of our party but the ff casts are only actors and can't be used. Also, no more multi platforms, it's annoying to buy every console just to play one game. This just my opinion as a kh and game fan.

All I ask for the Kingdom Hearts series is for Square Enix to stop making so many exclusive titles on different platforms. Each game adds so much to the series plot, and it's so hard to keep track of the story if it's so hard to collect the whole series if you don't own the right consoles.

I only just got a ps3 for my boyfriend late last year.

I think they should remake KH1, 2 and all the others on PS3 and ps4 and put KH3 on both KH3 and 4 to. I would buy 1 and 2 again and start over on ps3 if the this happened.

I think if they remade KH1,2, and all the others on ps3 a lot of people would buy the games coz iv seen loads of people saying they cant afford all the different consoles or even a ps4.

they would make a lot of money off people like me that don't have a lot of cash.


iv always loved the game ever since I played KH1 at my cousin jays place when I was like 10.

I only got to play the start by then a friend of mine had the game 6 years ago, got half way through and my game got deleted then 3 later i got the chance to play KH1 again. and my ps2 got stolen when i moved and now i cant find KH1 and have almost finished KH2

Did anyone see that live action movie '101 dalmatians'? Towards the end where the guy was developing that video game and the kid got well excited and amazed after beta testing it... watching the KH3 movie on this page movie has got me excited and amazed just like that Dalmatian beta tester kid.

There's only one thing that needs to happen to this series.

Drop any and all Disney from the IP.

Disney is lame.

I'm not the only one who asked for a Frozen and Emperor's New Groove world, right? :P

This made me buy a Xbox One now i can play Titanfall, Kingdom Hearts, Halo, Gears and Metal gear solid on the same console this is so epic! Kingdom Hearts on ps2 was my favorite game so i just cant wait to play this aswell!

all I want (and I did post this in my survey) is for KH3 to come out for the ps3 and 360 for I have no interest whatsoever in a ps4 or a one and it also makes more sense seeing as how those consoles install base are huge compared to the one and the ps4. then again, microsoft and sony might be paying square to make the game for next gen only to try and make it a system seller (which I also posted in my survey)

Maybe they should release KH3 exclusively for the WiiU, you know... because every console needs its KH exclusive and no one should ever be able to play all of them.

Direction of the franchise?  How 'bout shuttering it and spending the dev time on something interesting and original?


(Lulz, wait, Squeenix and 'interesting and original' don't belong in the same sentence.  NM)

Did the survey. The last time I was really enthused about Kingdom Hearts was Kingdom Hearts 2. It to me is going to be weird jumping into Kingdom Hearts 3, all these years after when so many things have happened since then. I can't wait for it though. I just hope it doesn't rely so heavily on the games I didn't play, or finish completely.

fan submissions = We have officially run out of ideas.

@Tenaku Their solution to that is the HD remixes 1.5 and 2.5. But your point does stand.

@limbo12  Agreed.  The Keysword thing and seeing Disney characters in an RPG like this just screams "Joke" to me.

@VenkmanPHD  If they did that, the game would stink. That's the whole premise of the game, dude.

@VenkmanPHD Sorry but that's their thing. I wouldn't mind a switch-up to another set of supporting characters though.

Or the devs at Square want to utilize the power of the next gen consoles without worrying about porting Kh3 to inferior hardware.

@danusty  It's not that hard to pay $400 for a better console that won't die off in give or take 2 years. I love my PS3 like a baby, but let's be real here, a game that's been this hyped and is this serious more than likely won't be a cross-generation type game. The last gen consoles only have a larger install base because they've been around 20X longer.

@michyeosseo  you are mostly right for only the ps2 got 3 games in the series and now the ps3 will have 4 out of 6 for only 4 are playable and 2 are just movies.

@Zignoff  


Or get a PS4 and Xbox One. I'm tired of them doing both last-gen and current-gen. You may think that's insensitive, but so be it.

@tachsniper  This survey has nothing to do with that actually. The title is just clickbait garbage.

@forkandplate  I'd also like to see some marvel superheroes, some older (and newer) WELL KNOWN square ENIX characters (not like those unknown ones from the world ends with you or whatever the name of the game is) and no lightning!

@daikkenaurora12 @limbo12It was a great idea at first, but now that the novelty of it has worn off and Disney is off making decent games on their own now... the series is ultimately doomed.

@andrdfry @danielheywood  You never know. One minute it seems unlikely, the next it happens out of nowhere. Like the announcement of Sonic Boom and Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.

@YEPEE00 @aaronpr0n  Nope, they just got a lot of time on their hands. IF that weren't the case, their games wouldn't be coming out in such high quality.

@NTM23  Why? How does it affect you in ANYWAY? Maybe I don't want a clunky piece of garbage Console with hardly any games just for 1 thing, and with no reason to justify exclusivity.

@NTM23  or release it for the ps3 and 360 for I have no interest whatsoever in a ps4 or a one and it also makes more sense seeing as how those consoles install base are huge compared to the one and the ps4. then again, microsoft and sony might be paying square to make the game for next gen only to try and make it a system seller

@danusty @forkandplate  You don't want Lightning cause she's a blank slate. Oh, but you wouldn't mind Cloud Strife being in it, because FFVII is the greatest game of all time.


And he's not a blank slate, right?
