#1935707 Series director, Tetsuya Nomura, releases new artwork to celebrate Kingdom He...

Posted by DChiuch on 28 March 2017 - 07:40 AM

Tetsuya Nomura, the director of the Kingdom Hearts series, has released a new official artwork to celebrate the series' 15th anniversary. This can be seen below.

Interesting notes and observations:

kingdom hearts Hd 1 5 remix 6

Kingdom Hearts Original Soundtrack Cover

Comparing with previous images with Sora sitting on a throne, for the first time he is sitting with a different attire than from his original Kingdom Hearts one (this time it’s his Kingdom Hearts III outfit). His right leg is crossed over his left, just like in the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX one. The crown is also rather different than in the previous instances, reminiscing an actual king’s.

Now let's check the hidden details from the artwork. You can notice all the blurry effects added to the image and the intentional placement of the anniversary date and number to hide what looks to be 3 paintings and another element:

· In the first painting (upper left corner), you see a mysterious figure smiling mischievously. Does this look familiar to you?

upper left

· Next, in the upper right corner, we have the most difficult painting to decipher.

Upper right

Zootopia

· Then, in the third painting, we have this:

bottom right

It has the clearest element from all three paintings: a musical note. Maybe just a tiny Easter Egg for the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - that we have been experiencing as a 15th Anniversary celebration?

· Finally, we can see Sora is holding an animal on his lap, one that resembles a canid. As an interesting note, next year is the Year of the Dog in the Chinese calendar.

#1924416 Staff changes

Posted by DChiuch on 06 February 2017 - 11:53 PM

Hey all, just a couple of staff changes to announce today.
 

Firstly, I've added a new "Staff Manager" position. The Staff Manager will assist each the Team Leaders of each team to manage their staff (recruiting/firing, making sure that everyone is contributing and staying active) and make sure that the team is on track with all of their goals and projects, and is doing everything to a high standard and in a timely manner. HarLea Quinn will be our first Staff Manager.

 

With HarLea Quinn now focusing her efforts here, WakelessDream will be promoted to the Moderators Team Leader. HarLea Quinn will continue to assist her here.

 

So to summarise, this is the current situation:

 

Staff Manager - HarLea Quinn

Moderators - WakelessDream (Team Leader), HarLea Quinn (also Team Leader)

News Team - myself (temporary Team Leader)

KHX Team - Raxaimus (Team Leader)
Social Media Team - AndrewHankinson (Team Leader), Wan Pisu (Vice Team Leader)
Archives Team - Jake (Team Leader)

 

Thanks :)

#1916225 Series director Tetsuya Nomura says that Kingdom Hearts III's release is...

Posted by DChiuch on 11 January 2017 - 02:42 AM

Speaking with Famitsu Weekly magazine this week, Tetsuya Nomura, the director of the Kingdom Hearts series had some words to say about the Kingdom Hearts series, and the development status of Kingdom Hearts III.

Nomura stated that Kingdom Hearts III (along with Final Fantasy VII Remake, which he is also working on) still has "a ways to go", with some worlds that remain untouched so far, and other unannounced worlds advancing in production. The relevant excerpt from the interview can be seen below, originally provided by Hachima and translated by Siliconera.

--What’s the development status on Kingdom Hearts III?

Nomura: “The production process is different than what we’ve had up until now, so I can’t just give you a general idea, but I can say that there are worlds that still remain untouched. We’ve advanced on the production of worlds that have yet to be announced, so we can’t show them for now. As far as development status goes, there’s still a ways to go.”

--What’s the development status on Final Fantasy VII Remake?

Nomura: “We’re making steady progress on its production. While we are indeed working on it, I think we’ll have you guys wait a little longer for both Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake.

I do apologize for that, but we’ll make up for it by making it into something that will meet expectations.

We didn’t share much information on either of the two titles last year, but I hope to show its progress at some event this year.

The release of these titles will still be a while. However, we have many titles releasing this year, and we hope you look forward to any ‘surprises’.”

The quote appears to imply that Kingdom Hearts III will definitely not be releasing in 2017, although, Nomura aims to show some of the game's progress off sometime this year.

Translations of the full interview can be found under the cut thanks to Catherine Mueller (nichiei.translations@gmail.com). Be warned that there are spoilers for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 HD Final Chapter Prologue!

#1913180 How Long Should Our 2.8 Spoiler Policy Be Implemented?

Posted by DChiuch on 02 January 2017 - 12:20 PM

I'm also a fan of just 1 month. We're a forum of KH enthusiasts, so it's kind of expected that the majority of people here will finish the game reasonably quickly - at least more quickly than in any other online communities. But treat my opinion as just a single opinion, I'm happy to leave it up to the community.

#1844651 Official Wiki Planning Discussion Thread

Posted by DChiuch on 16 July 2016 - 10:00 AM

Kikuhime has left due to the loss of her account, so we're a bit short on admins. We're wanting to rename all the Medal images to work better with the Mission template, which is going to require some more admin active support. I'm requesting that several of our regular editors be made admins -- I can personally vouch for them based on their work at KH and Digimon Wikis:

 

*N. Harmonik

*Neumannz

*ShardofTruth

*TheSilentHero

*Xabryn

 

All done




#1805892 [Updated] Announcing the official Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ KH13 party!

Posted by DChiuch on 19 April 2016 - 12:25 PM

Hey all, how's the party going? I'm assuming that there was a purge and re-adding of people since I've been removed :P (which is cool, I told the leaders to hold me to the same standard as everyone else and I was definitely the lowest levelled player by far!)

 

How exactly is the purge/re-adding process going to work (is it once a week, is there a waiting list of people, etc)?




#1803035 New features & feature requests

Posted by DChiuch on 12 April 2016 - 02:38 AM

To start with, I've added templates to quickly write the name of any of the games with "χ" in the title. You can use {{KHUX}}, {{KHX}} or {{KHXBC}} on any page to quickly add the text "Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ", "Kingdom Hearts χ" or "Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover" respectively, saving everyone the hassle of having to find and copy-paste the χ.

 

Please note that to link or italicise these titles, you will still need to apply formatting – so most of the time you will be writing something like ''{{KHUX}}'' or ''[[{{KHUX}}]]''.
