#1965983 Hackings show inaccessible areas in Destiny Islands and Dwarf Woodlands in Ki...

Posted by neil98 on 06 November 2017 - 07:19 PM

Back in September, HdHereidme uploaded a video showing off a hacked version of Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-. The video contains the free exploration of sections with limited accessibility in the game, such as Destiny Islands and The World Within in Dwarf Woodlands. The video showcases the beauty of the Unreal Engine 4, and definitely leaves the viewer wondering how Kingdom Hearts III will look like in 2018.

You can take a look at the video below:

Thanks to KHInsider for the tip!

In October, 13th Vessel uploaded a couple videos showcasing inaccessible areas in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- as well. He also shows off Destiny Islands and The World Within in Dwarf Woodlands, where he tried out some room codes and got a rare debug message, which stated "Continue as normal, the flag isn't raised" (in Japanese).

You can check out the video below:

Also, the video of the full gameplay can be viewed below:

What do you think about the areas' graphical showcase? And what do you expect to see from Kingdom Hearts III in terms of graphics? Feel free to tell us in the comment section!

- There is desire of making supporting characters and Organization XIII mini figures, so Nomura will think about it.
- Sea Salt Ice Creams at the event had winner sticks among them at the event which attendees were able to be exchange for a free coaster.
- They worked hard to host the Café, and maybe there are no more chances to do so, so Nomura asked everyone to enjoy that month.

- There is also no plans for selling a Promotional Video collection for now.
- The staff said that the release of the Kingdom Key prop replica should be asked to Bandai, as they are the ones who Disney handed the rights to.

Posted by neil98 on 03 October 2017 - 05:27 PM

During a chat with Famitsu, Tetsuya Nomura, Kingdom Hearts series director, and Kim Hyung-Tae, director of smartphone game Destiny Child, were asked about their future projects. Here are the excerpts from the interview involving Nomura's works, including Kingdom Hearts III with translations thanks to KH13 staff member @mio-chan.

Famitsu: Mr Kim, what interests you from Mr Nomura’s work?

Kim: I’m intrigued by Kingdom Hearts III, but what makes me more interested is Final Fantasy VII Remake.

There are things a producer would agree with, but also things that you would personally want to do. I would want to know which next work I would handle, other than the title that has been already announced.

Famitsu: Mr. Nomura, what about the progress of the games?

Nomura: I won’t tell. I will be scolded if I tell (laugh). The rules about giving information on both works are strictly decided. Now I feel like carrying a heavy burden. Once things settle down, I would like to release information in a peaceful manner.

Famitsu: Any message for the fans?

Kim: Destiny Child is more dynamic than any smartphone game you have encountered so far. Please look forward to it.

Nomura: About the titles I’m working on, there were no new announcements other than Dissidia Final Fantasy NT at TGS but, there are so many things in store, so please wait for a proper announcement.

What do you think about Nomura's comments regarding information release of his works? Please leave your thoughts in the comment section below!

#1948342 Tetsuya Nomura interviewed by Famitsu; Theater Mode for KHFM and new cutscene...

Posted by neil98 on 11 June 2017 - 03:27 PM

Kingdom Hearts series' director Tetsuya Nomura was interviewed by Famitsu at the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - concert in Los Angeles. In it, he discusses the concert, the latest trailer for Kingdom Hearts III, and the new patch that will be available for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX.

The interview seems to confirm a new Theatre Mode made available for Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and new cutscenes for Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days with the latest patch. It also seems to confirm that the Kingdom Hearts III D23 Expo trailer will be longer than the one shown at the LA Orchestra.

UPDATE: English translations for the Famitsu interview are now available. You can view the translated interview below:

Famitsu: The concert was amazing. How was it from the side of the scene?

Nomura: I mentioned it while I was on stage but, the images and the music were made so that they would perfectly fit and I thought it was amazing while I was watching. Also Shimomura became better at playing the piano during the concert in each countries until Los Angeles (laugh). At the final event in Osaka she will be perfect don't you think ? (laugh)

Famitsu: There is a lot of pressure on Shimomura (laugh). Everyone was cheering you when you started your speech.

Nomura: On stage I wanted to speak about the fixes and updates for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX but I was overwhelmed by the voices of everyone cheering and I forgot what I was supposed to say (sarcastic laugh)

Famitsu: What is the content of the update.

Nomura: The addition of the theater mode for KH and of a few cutscenes in KH 358/2 Days. I wanted to add it sooner but it needed more time and the timing met up with this event. 

Famitsu: The reception of the new promotional video was amazing too. Because is didn't seem that there was going to be a trailer or an announcement about Kingdom Hearts III at E3, this was a pleasant surprise for the fan.

Nomura: There is a lot of misunderstanding about it. The choice to show or not to show something is up to the ones making the conferences. We just used the timing of the concert being at the same time as E3 to announce it.

Famitsu: Considering that the information is going really fast during the conference, it seems better to announce it that way for the fans. The battle felt rich with all the Keyblade transformations, there was a lot of action and we could see the different worlds.

Nomura: But this battle scene was only in the Hercules world.

Famitsu: Was it? There was so much thing that I thought it was from various worlds.

Nomura: Also, the next trailer will have a Japanese version and a North american version but the battle scenes were from an actual gameplay footage so we couldn't make them exactly the same. It will look the same but if you compare them you will be able to see the differences. So I would like the core fans to look at both trailers.

Famitsu: At last, the D23 Expo 2017 occur next month.

Nomura: The editing of the D23 trailer is being finalized right now but I think that not only it will be longer than the orchestra trailer, it will also show some new elements that should meet everyone's expectations.

From Famitsu's interview article:

At the end, I also managed to hear a little from Nomura about the information of the D23 announcement. "Seriously ?!" I was so excited in the night of Hollywood. Amazing. Amazing. Absolutely. Yes, definitely a good game.
I'm sorry for assuming of the importance of this information but I obviously can't write this information here. I was only allowed to write the reaction to these revelations and so I wrote it! I'm sorry for being this vague but there is no doubt that the announcement at D23 will be worth it!! At the time of the presentation, there will obviously be a quick announcement on Famitsu.com
Also the details will be in the weekly issue of the Famitsu magazine that will be publish right after the opening of the conference to the public. Please look forward to it!
