E3 is just a few short weeks ahead and Square Enix will most certainly be a developer and publisher to keep an eye on. With the likes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Just Cause 3, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy 15 and of course, Kingdom Hearts 3 hopefully all on display, they're just one of many to get excited about. But there's one crowd that have been left out up until now within the sphere of Kingdom Hearts: the XBOX owners.

Of course, the Kingdom Hearts series has been a Playstation exclusive since its infancy. However, Kingdom Hearts 3 is releasing for both the PS4 and XBOX One, and if Square Enix hope to make any money off of the Xbox crowd, they're going to have to give them the option to try it out on their consoles! We all know that the Kingdom Hearts remasters were released on PS3, so could E3 finally see them released for the Xbox One and PS4?

Obviously, pretty much everyone that's excited for Kingdom Hearts 3 are those that have engaged with the series in some capacity in the past. Though I imagine there are a few people out there who saw the E3 trailer last year and thought it looked interesting. But in order for Kingdom Hearts 3 to sell to those who've been with the Xbox their whole lives, we're going to need to see some of the titles to arrive on the Xbox 360 or the Xbox One before its release date.

I doubt Square Enix will be trying to make Kingdom Hearts 3 the kind of game you could hop into without prior knowledge of the characters or the ridiculously convoluted plot. They have a lot to wrap up in this installment, and of course all of the Disney characters are a big draw, but Sora and his friends are just as important.

So what do you think Kingdom Hearts fans? Are we likely to see the Kingdom Hearts remasters on the Xbox One and PS4? Square Enix have likely been very tactful in releasing the series for previous console generations first. NextGen is sure to follow. Could E3 see it happen? Let us know what you think in the comments and whether you feel Xbox fans are likely to pick up Kingdom Hearts 3 without prior knowledge of the series!
