It looks like Square Enix already is busy developing the third part of the Kingdom Hearts series. The Japanese guide book of Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep contains an interview with producer Tetsuya Nomura who says that the game will be developed further after Final Fantasy Versus XIII has been released.

Nomura also said that this won't be the last game in the Kingdom Hearts series and that we don't have to say goodbye to Sora.

Square Enix has announced that the PSP spin-off Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep will be avaliable in North America and Europe this Summer.

"Long before Sora was chosen by his Keyblade, the worlds’ safety lay in the hands of others known as the Keyblade Masters.

It is under one of these, Master Eraqus, that three young people have been training long and hard to prove that they, too, exhibit the Mark of Mastery: Terra, Ventus, and Aqua.

The three of them will soon find themselves in the middle of a crisis affecting worlds far beyond their own—just as another Keyblade Master, Xehanort, goes mysteriously missing.

Three friends, three purposes; one horrible fate toward which they must unknowingly march…"

The game was released in Japan on 9 January and sold 740,000 copies till now.

Final Fantasy XIII

Nintendo has announced that they will parter up with Square Enix to release Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies this Summer in North America and Europe.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies has sold more than 4.15 million copies in Japan since its release back in July 2009. However, outside Japan the series aren't really a success. Is this the reason why they don't release the game themselves?
