The lights are on
Square Enix has announced plans to release two of its action/RPGs on Xbox One as well as PlayStation 4.
This news comes after yesterday's announcement that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is now Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III is in development.
When we asked Final Fantasy brand director Shinji Hashimoto if the PS4 and Xbox One versions would release at the same time, the company would neither confirm or deny a simultaneous release date.
This is the first time the Kingdom Hearts franchise has appeared on a Microsoft console. Since this is the third entry, Matsuda was asked how the company plans to catch-up newcomers on Microsoft. As of right now, there's no plans for anything of that sort. But as Matsuda suggested, fans can look online at videos and to get a grasp of the complex history.
Will you be picking up the games on Xbox One or PlayStation 4?

Finally Kingdom Hearts is coming to Xbox! This is great news for me!
Good to know
Lame. That would have really brought it home for Sony. I guess it's good more people can experience it.
Looks like Microsoft is stealing some of Sony's exclusives. Insomniac is making a game for them and then there is this news. Glad to see that these games will be available to Xbox users.
Yea I figured KH3 would be on Xbox.
square-enix knows they love money and want to reach the most gamers...
Microsoft knew their gonna fail now their trying to "convince" gamers to get the Xbone all because they gonna have KH3 and FF15? Do I smell desperate? Ps4 still won :P
totaly on ps4 but even though im a sony ps girl im actually happy xboxone ppl get to play kh its a great series that many ppl should try and get into
Playstation 4 only. Played em on the PS2 so I play this on ps4. Xbox lost my business when my 360 overheated and actually caught itself on fire. True story.
I think this was kinda pointless if they aren't even gonna fill people in on the whole completely convoluted "story" in KH. But its all good I guess!!
Really Square? XV I can understand, but if you intend to put KH 3 on Xbox One I should hope that you will also give Xbox gamers a way to play the first 2 since giving gamers the last part of a trilogy is kinda stupid. Ah what am I saying you just want money, you could give a crap less about that stuff.
Easy way, buy the PS2 and all of the other handhelds like many KH fans had to!
