Kingdom Hearts was announced for Nintendo Switch two weeks ago, during Super Smash Bros Ultimate's final character reveal. However, not all fans were happy due to this being through cloud streaming.

Though these three Kingdom Hearts titles will become accessible via Switch, producer Ichiro Hazama discussed this in a recent interview with Nintendo Life. Here, he confirmed that a native port for the series is still "undecided."

"At this moment in time, the production of a native version is undecided. We believe that the Cloud version is currently the best way to deliver the Kingdom Hearts series to Nintendo Switch players, but we are always excited to hear feedback from our fans and want to thank them for all their support."

Native Kingdom Hearts Port for Switch Still 'Undecided,' Says Game Producer

During this interview, Hazama cites the Switch hardware's storage capacity as a reason why the Kingdom Hearts games were difficult to bring over natively. While Melody of Memory previously released on Switch, this was also a much smaller game.

As such, that appears to be holding back Square Enix from making native Switch editions for these Kingdom Hearts games, choosing to venture into the console's cloud streaming service instead. Make sure to follow us for more gaming news and updates.
