Kingdom Hearts III – Story, Visuals, and Action.


The director of Kingdom Hearts III, Tetsuya Nomura, got the chance to sit down with the well known Japanese site, Famitsu, and talk a little more about Kingom Hearts III with a little Q & A.

・Director: Tetsuya Nomura
・Co Director: Tai Yasue
・Composer: Yoko Shimomura
・Producer: Rie Nishi

・In the story, Sora goes off to find a “key that returns hearts” and travels to various Disney worlds.
・The CG characters that were introduced are: Sora, Donald, and Goofy.

Q & A from Director Tetsuya Nomura

・It is a direct continuation from KINGDOM HEARTS 3D and the selection of new worlds is underway. It is the final battle between Master Xehanort in the last chapter of the Seeker of Darkness saga.

・Other than Sora, will we be able to play as Riku and Kairi?: I can’t say no to the possibility.

・Visuals: We continued to explore on how should a next generation KINGDOM HEARTS should look like and we tried to make the textures to closely resemble those of Disney illustrations. From there, it was updated.

・From numerous attempts by Mr. Nozue, the “KINGDOM SHADER” developed visuals that created those textures.

・Action: In the demo, the moments were a lot more rampant. There will be more adventurous experiences, KINGDOM HEARTS III will utilize three party members, in every world NPCs can also participate in these flashy battles. As one progresses, the AI for friends and foes become different.

・Sora learned the Keyblade’s truer strength during the Mark of Mastery Exam.

・The development team of FINAL FANTASY XV and KINGDOM HEARTS III have a friendly competition between each other. There is also a response to a sneak preview, online compatibility is being considered and please wait for more information in the future. This year, TGS in October and also D23 Expo Japan will be revealing more information.

Let us know what you think in the comment section, and stay up to date on everything Kingdom Hearts III with Project Crystallis.

    I honestly hope that they don’t use any Marvel or Star Wars characters in the game. I know many people hope they do, but I feel like they would be completely out of place in the context of the game.
