Kingdom Hearts III may well have DLC but no season pass

Kingdom Hearts 3 director Tetsuya Nomura has revealed that he is interested in making DLC Kingdom Hearts III, but not up for a season pass.



Kingdom Hearts 3 director Tetsuya Nomura has revealed that he is interested in making DLC Kingdom Hearts III, but not up for a season pass.

In an interview with Game Informer, Nomura said:

“I do want to look into potentially releasing DLC after [launch], but nothing have been solidified or decided on what we want to do or what we will do,” he said. “I don’t think I’ll ever really release a season pass of sorts either, because I’m not fond of that model.”

Nomura then explained why he is fond of the idea of doing DLC, he said:


“I want people to continue to enjoy playing Kingdom Hearts III after release. I actually also think that not many bigger titles nowadays release and just leave it at that. [I] don’t want to follow along with them, but I want to create something that the fans will enjoy even after release.”

At this stage, however, there isn’t a notion of what that DLC will look like. Nomura signed off, saying, “I have no idea what it would be or might be. Nothing has been decided.”

Kingdom Hearts III was shown off during the PlayStation E3 2018 Showcase. It is due out on January 29 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
