The Kingdom Hearts Series Memorial Ultimania released today in Japan and included in is a message from director of the Kingdom Hearts series, Tetsuya Nomura. The message included concerns Kingdom Hearts III and the Kingdom Hearts series in general. You can read it below thanks to SQEX.info.

Message from Tetsuya Nomura

If I had to pick, I am a person more on the dark side like Xehanort and co., I harness the burning anger in my heart into what I create. Kingdom Hearts III’s current development explodes very much in this sense. Each time, it’s a battle with Sora and co. who are the exact opposite of myself, it’s been over 10 years and yet we haven’t reached a conclusion.

This battle will surely last longer.

In Kingdom Hearts III as well, I am scheming many challenges that Sora and his friends must overcome, because I myself cannot lose either. And in preparation for the great battle that lies ahead, we have this one book that looks back on their entire journey.

When I think about it, I had an explosive mindset when I made the first Kingdom Hearts as well.

Thus when I look back at all the material, I feel that fever again. Fans who will continue the journey so far alongside Sora and his friends will also recall their own feverish enthusiasm. With that passion, we will not lose to darkness, and Sora’s journey will continue onwards.

The journey still continues, but I would be overjoyed if you stuck with us until the very end.


Today, with the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX in Japan, Famitsu Weekly have included a special commemorative article in their October 2, 2014 issue. This article contains a detailed summary of the game, teases both of the new Secret Movies included with Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, and also contains a special interview with the director of the Kingdom Hearts series, Tetsuya Nomura.

Here, Nomura shares his feelings about the game being released and each of the titles in the collection, touches on where Birth by Sleep -Volume 2- currently stands, and shares some details about the new Secret Movies included with Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (you've been warned, if you're trying to avoid all comments about these clips-- but Nomura is light on the details, so it should be fine).

KH13 translator SkyKeybladeHero has created a full translation of this interview (with scans provided by us-- which we regrettably can't share with you due to copyright reasons), and thanks to him, this can be read below.

Comments from the father of the KH series, Tetsuya Nomura

What are the highlights of KHIIFM HD?

Nomura: KHII's map and production have much more density than KH, and the characters are more numerous as well. In HD, you can see well even the expressions of characters that are in the background and understand the circumstances with more ease. Since KHII has much more information, I think it greatly benefits from the HD remaster.

Among everything that was included in the FInal Mix version, what would you recommend?

Nomura: The battle against the Lingering Will. Among all the series' titles, it stands for 1st or 2nd most famous battle. It's quite hard to defeat it, but even if you don't, I want everyone to taste its power. Depending on whether you fought it or not, I think your feelings for BbS will change. In 2.5, BbS is also included, so I'd recommend playing KHII and fighting the Lingering Will first, before going on to play BbS.

—What are the highlights of KH BbS FM HD?

Nomura: Comparing to KHIIFM, which we could almost leave as it was, the production of BBS HD was much more major, since it was originally designed for a handheld. The amazing part is feeling it in a way you've never seen before, I guess. Story-wise, it has 3 characters and many shocking scenes, so you can't just squeeze it in one story. I daresay the Secret Movie is one of those shocking scenes. Among the whole series, I think it's one of the most touching, so I hope you enjoy watching it in HD.

—Among everything that was included in the FInal Mix version, what would you recommend?

Nomura: The Secret Episode. It's an evolution of all the Secret Movies I've put in the games so far, because it's playable. You can feel the pace of the story and the battle, so I'm glad I made it like that. By the way, the indication for Birth By Sleep -Volume 2- is still there. It shows the existence of Aqua's story in the Realm of Darkness. It means that she didn't just wander about in the Darkness for ten years, but that she passed through many experiences. However, it is a "Fragmentary Passage", as the same suggests-- that story was severed and wasn't told. I hope I can tell it when given the opportunity.

—What are the highlights of KH Re:coded HD?

Nomura: Everything! The original text dialogues were changed to fit being voiced, and the feel you get from it has changed a lot. For example, in Alice's world, the texts that ended in "right?" were changed to "riiiight?" in the voice acting. We used the production of original anime as basis for this. And it is a title full of discoveries. Also, I tried to make it a feature film that links the story very well when adding the Disney Worlds, battle scenes and narrations.

In this interview, Nomura has revealed that he hopes to one day tell the story of Birth by Sleep -Volume 2-, when he is given the opportunity. Birth by Sleep -Volume 2- was of course the ending "title card" of the Secret Movie for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, leading fans to speculate that this might be a mystery game in the works. However, this movie was released in 2011, and according to Nomura today, "the story was severed and wasn't told".

Read Nomura's full comment below, thanks to KH13 user SkyKeybladeHero for translations.

With Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX's Japanese release tomorrow, two new commercials for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX's Japanese version have been released. Titled "Story" and "Friend" these two commercials showcase the three titles included in the HD collection. Both commercials are in 1080p and can be viewed below.


With less than 1 day remaining until Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX releases in Japan, some people are beginning to get their hands on the game. One user on a Japanese message board, who posted this image of the game as verification (also shown below), has begun to share some very small details concerning new content in the HD collection.

Here are the user's comments about the game:
(At the request of the poster, we have avoided using full quotes. If this is also unsuitable, let us know.)

- The credits contain some scenes from Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, as well as a scene from the Kingdom Hearts III announcement trailer where Sora is holding the Master Keeper Keyblade.

- The user shared these images of the credits, proving their claim:

This is interesting, because in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, the credits contained scenes from Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Birth by Sleep, and Re:coded-- which, of course, were a big hint towards the games that were included in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. Could these scenes be hinting at a HD remaster for Kingdom Hearts 3D?

Update: We originally had spoiler warnings in this article, but we have decided to not consider the game credits to be a spoiler, anymore (since this news is likely going to appear everywhere over the next few months, and be unavoidable). Sorry for any inconvenience!

With Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX's release in Japan fast approaching (just over 1 day, now!), early copies have begun to appear in Japanese stores, and some are even being sold. People lucky enough to purchase a copy early have posted photos online of the HD collection, including one showing the title's background on the PlayStation 3's user interface.

We will update this post with all reports, photos and unboxings that we find. Enjoy!
