In an interview with Siliconera at San Diego Comic-Con, Tetsuya Nomura, director of the Kingdom Hearts series has revealed that his new Batman design shown off at San Diego Comic-Con International 2014 was actually from a very old cancelled video game project, could have influenced armor design in Kingdom Hearts armor. This quote is below.

The Batman figure, especially its armor, reminds me of the Kingdom Hearts series and the armor Keyblade users wear [in Birth by Sleep].

Actually, to be honest, the project that never got off the ground was done before Kingdom Hearts was conceived. It might be the opposite—the design from that early project influenced Kingdom Hearts and armor design in that series.


Nomura ended the interview by mentioning that he would love for figurines of the lead characters from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep to be created. Could we see Square Enix release these eventually?

There are a lot of Square Enix figures based on your characters. Which figure is your favorite and what characters did you make that you want to see figures of?

I’d love to have figures of the three lead characters from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep.

Update: Kaori Takasue, the Product Manager at Square Enix Japan Studios, has shared some comments on the official PlayStation blog about the size of the HD 2.5 ReMIX case, and how exactly the pin will be included. These are quoted below.

Hi +yourworldonfire :) thanks for liking the look of the pin, it makes us really happy. Art book for 1.5 remix was definitely a success too. The box standing next to each other is kind of a big deal to us, so we may have to make sure that the size matches up nicely next to your Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX box.

Hello +Arsenic 13, the brand manager from Kingdom Hearts 1.5 ReMIX told me that it was “critical” that we carry that side by side heights be similar. You can’t have one tall and one short right?! Let’s see what we can do about that. How about a window where you can say peek-a-boo to your pin somehow? We’re cranking ideas everyday! Thanks for your support!

We've bought a new server for KH13, and have spent the last week copying the website over and configuring everything. If you can see this news post, that means you're on the new server. This server is much faster than the old one, with about 4x as much theoretical capacity. Hopefully, this means we'll see KH13 loading faster, with much less crashes. With these improvements, let's look forward to uninterrupted coverage of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX's appearance at San Diego Comic-Con International in under 4 day's time!
