Famitsu's Readers Want Kingdom Hearts on PS3
Fans respond to questions about favorite game, character and scene.
There's currently no indication that Square Enix is making Kingdom Hearts for PlayStation 3. But PS3 does seem to be the platform of choice for the series amongst readers of Japan's largest video game magazine, Weekly Famitsu.
In recent survey, whose results were posted in a Square Enix feature in this week's issue, the magazine asked readers of Famitsu.com to name the platform they want to see the next KH game on.
Here are the results. Multiple votes were allowed.
- 1. PS3 (2,030 votes)
- 2. PSP (1,010)
- 3. PS Vita (990)
- 4. 3DS (440)
- 5. Wii U (270)
PS3 lead the way, doubling second place PSP. PS Vita and 3DS also played high. Newcomer Wii U also made it in above DS and Xbox 360 (Xbox 360 got 140 votes, by the way).
