Hackings show inaccessible areas in Destiny Islands and Dwarf Woodlands in Kingdom Hear...

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!

- Sora's birthday isn't specified, but it should be the day of his debut (March 28, 2002), just as other Disney characters.
- 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 no schedule for a release of Nomura’s art collection at the moment.
- 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.

Tetsuya Nomura and Kim Hyung-Tae interviewed by Famitsu about their future projects

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!
