Update 2: We've started a compilation article for all photos and unboxings concerning Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX's release in Japan.

Within several interviews with co-director of the Kingdom Hearts series, Tai Yasue, there have been strong hints that he would like to see a world in Kingdom Hearts III based around the successful Disney film, Frozen, leading to speculation that it was all but confirmed.

The recent interview with Tetsuya Nomura in Famitsu Weekly, however, debunks the notion that world selection is set in stone just yet.

Nomura: That surprised me too. I checked with Yasue, because we haven’t touched upon it at all, and there’s been no talk about what we’d do ‘if we put it in for now’. I do understand, though, because interviewers overseas do talk about their wishes for what they’d like to happen. In response, we Japanese don’t give clear yes or no answers. Then sometimes they take it as as ‘fact’. It was misinformation that came from a difference in culture.


It's worth noting that, when asked, Nomura admitted that he did enjoy Frozen and also looks forward to Disney's next feature film, Big Hero 6. In addition, the interview revealed that, in spite of no longer feeling truly limited to being "Disney-like" and moving the series into more original territory, there is still a deep appreciation for the Disney content of the games and the inspiration that they provide.

It is the extremely loving and careful way they show and handle their characters both inside and outside the works themselves. I think this is what makes Disney works top class worldwide. This is very important with games too, according to the type, and the whole thing can become good or bad depending on the way the characters are handled. I’ve learned a lot.


He also mentions that he is excited by the appointment of John Lasseter (director of Toy Story and Cars), has been appointed as chief creative officer at Disney.

The full interview is available here, with translations thanks to goldpanner.

Tetsuya Nomura has revealed, in the September 25, 2014 issue of Famitsu Weekly (which contained an in-depth interview with the Kingdom Hearts series director), that he is investigating ways to allow more people to experience Kingdom Hearts χ. Currently, Kingdom Hearts χ is a Japanese-only title, and only for PC web browsers.

However, with it recently being confirmed that the stories of Kingdom Hearts χ and Kingdom Hearts III are heavily tied together, it makes sense that Square Enix would like to expand the audience of the game. Nomura also confirmed that the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded HD Cinematic Story Videos in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX would contain an addition based on Kingdom Hearts χ's "Tome of Prophecy", and that the Kingdom Hearts χ story would be continued between the release of HD 2.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts III.

It is currently unknown specifically what Nomura is referring to, so leave a comment below with your thoughts! Do you think Nomura could be planning to release the game in English, or do you think that they might be considering porting the game to other consoles or platforms?

The full interview is available here, with translations thanks to goldpanner.

In an interview from the September 25, 2014 issue of Famitsu Weekly, when asked if Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance would get a HD remaster, Nomura has stated that he doesn't like the idea of leaving Kingdom Hearts 3D as the only title without one. Nomura also

As you would know, with Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX containing Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX containing Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, Kingdom Hearts 3D is left as the only major game in the series without a HD remaster. Do you think that Square Enix will do something more with this game, eventually? Let us know your ideas in the comments below.

The full interview is available here (and relevant quote below), with translations thanks to goldpanner.

—By the way, what about KH3D? It’s not in KH1.5 or KH2.5.

Nomura: Aside from KHχ (Key), which is currently still underway, KH3D is the only title in the series not remastered in HD. I personally don’t like leaving it as the odd one out, so I think it’s an issue that requires consideration.


Famitsu have announced that following on from the September 25, 2014 issue of Famitsu Weekly, which contained an in-depth interview with the Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura, Kingdom Hearts will again appear in next week's issue of the magazine, releasing on October 2, 2014.

This article will be a special commemorative article for the Japanese release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, which is also on October 2, 2014. Nomura is set to appear yet again, with even more comments. The original source of this news is below, thanks to goldpanner.

[In the next issue (on sale 2nd October) we will include a special feature commemorating the release! We will also continue Mr Nomura's comments!]


Update: Famitsu have released previews of the issue of Famitsu Weekly, releasing on October 2, 2014. It features five pages dedicated to Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX with various screenshots, artwork and renders. You can view them below.

Also, goldpanner has translated the article on Famitsu.com, which includes a nice description of what you can expect in the upcoming Famitsu Weekly. This can also be read below.

Kingdom Hearts -HD 2.5 ReMIX- is approaching release on the 2nd October 2014. In the weekly Famitsu on sale the same day, we will explain the attractions of each title included in this work; Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.
