Tetsuya Nomura Hints At Huge Square Enix Release... Could It Be Kingdom Hearts 3?

In an interview with Gemega magazine, game director and character designer Tetsuya Nomura said Square Enix will pull away the veil on a top secret, highly requested game in 2010. While I would like to think it will be a new Chrono title, I don't think it falls into the category of "highly requested." Since it is Nomura, my guess would be Kingdom Hearts 3. The PSP title Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is set to release in Japan on January 9, and at this point, Final Fantasy Versus XIII is likely a good ways into development.

Of course, we cannot dismiss the idea of this announcement being the remake of Final Fantasy VII -- the game everyone is dying to play. But before you start drolling over Final Fantasy VII again, ask yourself this: Do you really want the Final Fantasy team focusing on a remake rather than a new game? I have fond memories of Final Fantasy VII, but I honestly don't need to go back to it if it means we have another three-year wait for a NEW Final Fantasy.
