Kingdom Hearts 3 marks the end of a 'trilogy,' but not the series

Kingdom Hearts 3 represents the end of a trilogy. Well, it's technically not a trilogy because as series creator Testuya Nomura admits, "there have been so many spinoffs."

Still, the story that started in the first Kingdom Hearts on PS2 in 2002 will be coming to something of an end, Nomura explained. "In Kingdom Hearts 3, the battles that the characters have been fighting for the past 10 years will come to a conclusion," he promised.

Of course, while KH3 may end one arc, it's far from the end for one of Square Enix's best-selling franchises. Speaking to The Los Angeles Times, Nomura said that "the series will continue. Only the particular enemy they have been fighting the past 10 years will come to an end."

But with more than eight years separating Kingdom Hearts 2 and 3, it's not difficult to assume that flying cars will come out before Kingdom Hearts 4 does.
