I love when I do things as an adult that make me think "Man, kid me would be so impressed".
Anybody know how to use vbulletin and know how to design? (or at least know how to use vbulletin). I'm making a forum on something and need help. :P
I found my KH13 waifu
Translations of her tweets and a quote from the Nico Nico page for the live stream can be read below. Thanks go to goldpanner for the translations.
At last, today is 4star's Piano Restaurant 3rd Concert ~Hiroyuki Sonobe Solo Recital~! KH Piano Collections and FF Piano Opera double feature! I will also be doing a talk, so please excuse me. As for what I'll be talking about, right now I have no plan haha.
And! And! It seems that on May 5th, 4star2015 THE FINAL will be a paid channel live broadcast on Nico Video! I would be so happy if those who won't be able to make it to the real thing check it out there. I will also be doing a talk, so please excuse me. As for what I'll be talking about… second verse, same as first lol.
4star Orchestra is a game music festival held once every four years for artists involved in game music, creators and fans to get passionate together as one. Our second ever festival, 4star Orchestra 2015, will be held alongside Hachioji Music Festival 2013 in Golden Week 2015.
For the FINAL public performance, we have put together a Special All Star Orchestra centered around the musicians who also participate in the official concerts and recorded tracks! With Nobuo Uematsu, Yoko Shimomura, Noriyuki Iwadare and Atlus established as our four themes, we hope to bring 4star Orchestra 2015 to a close on an appropriately gorgeous stage.
(Yoko Shimomura is then listed as a guest MC as well as the composer of Dearly Beloved, Traverse Town and Hand in Hand from Kingdom Hearts, Faraway Dreaming Days ~Siren's song~, Polpota Harbour and more from Legend of Mana, and MEGALOMANIA from Live A Live.)
The official website for this show has confirmed Square Enix as a participant. While this is more likely focused on Square Enix's large catalogue of AAA western titles such as Rise of the Tomb Raider, Just Cause 3, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Hitman 6 coming out in the next year or so, there is a chance it could feature titles from Square Enix's Japanese studios as Square Enix has been very active in porting Final Fantasy titles to Windows PC/Steam in the past year ranging from blockbuster titles like Final Fantasy XIII to mobile titles like Final Fantasy IV. There is a good chance Kingdom Hearts III will at some stage be released on Windows PC/Steam maybe even Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 & 2.5 ReMIX.
Would you like to see the Kingdom Hearts series available on PC? Let us know in the comments below.
What do you hope to see during the D23 Expo? Let us know in the comments!
It is currently unknown if the Kingdom Hearts series will be featured at all, but with this being Square Enix's first dedicated E3 conference in many years, and with a Kingdom Hearts expansion to smartphones announcement teased for the near future (along with other mysterious announcements), there is a considerable chance that we may see something.
Before Kingdom Hearts III he worked on worked on KIXEYE's War Commander as a Senior AI Engineer between July 2013 and August 2014. Before that he worked as an AI Engineer on Star Wars 1313, the final game in development at LucasArts when George Lucas sold his company to Disney. During this time he lived in the San Francisco Bay Area.
He has also worked on other video game titles including Turbine's Infinite Crisis along with CCP on EVE Online and World of Darkness.
He graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology in May 2008 with his Master of Science, Computer Science; specialization in Artificial Intelligence.
You can view the Kingdom Hearts III listing on his LinkedIn profile below.
Praveen Dubey and Lakshya Digital have recently worked on a few major titles including Dark Souls 2 and Tekken 7.
Outsourcing is completely normal for Square Enix as their other new console titles have all been at least partly outsourced after they experienced development issues with Final Fantasy XIII. It's also a great change of pace after both Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX & Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX were fully developed by the Kingdom Hearts team only.
Thanks go to @Obsqura for the tip and NeoGAF user qualitydisc for the find.
