Although her involvement with Kingdom Hearts III is not completely confirmed, fans are still eagerly hoping she will continue to make music for the beloved Disney/Square Enix series. With iconic songs like “Simple and Clean” and Kingdom Hearts and “Sanctuary” on Kingdom Hearts II, if she decides to not be involved, it will be a hard time for fans awaiting a new, beautiful song from her to lead the way into the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts III. There is no official statement about her involvement other than what has been said by her father on Twitter.
