I am finding it a little strange that Nomura hasn't made a statement on UX ending and going offline. He normally jumps at the opportunity to say a few esoteric words to the fanbase. Guess he's too busy putting out fires for Stranger of Paradise 😅

Kingdom Hearts is the place where Nomura can express himself personally. It is the only games he's ever been allowed to actually direct (except for FF7R), and where his ideas go when other directing projects get cancelled (Versus XIII). Anything else (TWEWY) is not "his", he just helps those directors get them made.

KH is not a "franchise" or an "IP", it's a specific work headed by a specific team. Certainly there are many co-writers over the years besides Nomura that also hold responsibility for its creation, but you shouldn't just give head positions to any people for marketing reasons.

This kinda makes me feel like the true owner of Kingdom Hearts isn't Disney.

It's Nomura. Disney may own it in the legal sense, but since they have to go to Nomura for approval on anything they do with it, he essentially is the true owner.

Well, until he ends the story and series for good, whereupon Disney will leap at the chance to water it down and milk the absolute shit out of it

That's always been the case. You ever wondered why we don't get anything Kingdom Hearts that doesn't have any creative contributions from Nomura? It's because he has control of what gets creatively approved.

The only Kingdom Hearts products unaffiliated with Square Enix was Kingdom Hearts V-Cast and that was released before Chain of Memories.
