Now here is something really interesting. In an interview with Famitsu, Kingdom Hearts III Director Tetsuya Nomura said that Square Enix will consider bringing this new Kingdom Hearts game to other platforms once the game releases on PS4 and Xbox One.
As Nomura stated, the team is dedicated on these two versions right now. Still, once the game has been released on these two consoles, Square Enix will consider bringing it to other platforms. What other platforms? Nomura did not clarify but we can safely assume that he’s referring to two: Nintendo Switch and PC.
Here is what Nomura had to say about bringing Kingdom Hearts 3 to other platforms (and a misunderstanding that occurred during an interview with IGN who claimed that Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming to Nintendo Switch).
“They misinterpreted the word ‘considering’ as to “it is possible to release” and it spread out. “Other hardware” is not limited to the Nintendo switch, and we will consider all of them after the release of the PS4 and Xbox one versions.”
Kingdom Hearts III will be powered by Unreal Engine 4, so a PC version should theoretically be possible (and easier than a PC version of Final Fantasy XV; a game that is using Square Enix’s Luminous Engine).
Now obviously we strongly suggest keeping your expectations low, as it may take a couple of years until we see Kingdom Hearts 3 on PS4 and Xbox One (so a possible PC version is still a long ways off).

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
