Nvidia Database Leak Reveals Kingdom Hearts 4 and Chrono Cross Remaster
Hearing about a leak is nothing new, but this large-scale Nvidia leak may have revealed Kingdom Hearts 4, and a Chrono Cross Remaster, among other things. This came over the weekend, as someone gained access, allegedly to the database for Nvidia’s GeForce Now. There’s a huge list of games on it, from PlayStation ports and new, unreleased titles. Unreleased, unannounced titles like Kingdom Hearts 4 and the PS1 classic Chrono Cross in a remastered format came in this Nvidia leak. Is this true and accurate? As for all leaks, you have to take it with a grain of salt. If interested, you can see the list of games leaked on Reddit.
Confirmation Has Not Occurred
After all, it’s been a couple of years since Kingdom Hearts 3 came out, but Kingdom Hearts 3 was also in development for significantly longer than that. Some have said 13 years; others said five. There’s a very real chance that these unannounced, unrevealed games are simply placeholders, assuming/hoping these games come to light. If a game is listed in the Nvidia GeForce leak, it could mean nothing, or it could mean Kingdom Hearts 4 is very much being worked on.
Square Enix has yet to confirm or deny the Nvidia leak and if Kingdom Hearts 4 is actually in development. These aren’t the only Square Enix games hinted at in the leak, either. A Final Fantasy IX Remake and a Final Fantasy Tactics Remaster were also listed in the leak. These would excite many JRPG fans (this writer in particular) but don’t get your hopes up. As far as an FFT Remaster, this could mean Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions is coming to GeForce Now.
There’s no doubt that people want another Kingdom Hearts game, but we waited a very long time between Kingdom Hearts 2 and 3. As far as Chrono Cross Remaster goes, yes, it is always overshadowed by Chrono Trigger – one of the greatest RPGs ever to get developed on this planet of Earth. We’re excited but aren’t going to get our hopes up just yet. These could be games that were revealed to Nvidia but canceled or aren’t going to be out for years yet. It is exciting to contemplate this Nvidia leak being real, and a Kingdom Hearts 4 could be on the way.
Nvidia released a statement about this news from a spokesperson. “Nvidia is aware of an unauthorized published game list, with both released and/or speculative titles, used only for internal tracking and testing. Inclusion on the list is neither confirmation nor an announcement of any game. Nvidia took immediate action to remove access to the list. No confidential game builds or personal information were exposed.”
They did not point out which were “speculative” and which were not, so we still hope that some of these turn out to be real games in production. We’ll have to keep our eyes open for announcements in the future.
