World with new playable character confirmed for Kingdom Hearts III; future D23 Expo rev...

17 October 2017 - 08:56 PM

Amongst the Kingdom Hearts III information revealed at the Kingdom Hearts 15th Anniversary Commemorative Campaign Preview Night held at Square Enix Café Osaka on October 13th, 2017, there was also some discussion pertaining the worlds in the upcoming title and future reveals. Kingdom Hearts III development leads, such as series director Tetsuya Nomura and lead character modeler Mr. Yamasaki, answered related questions.

It was confirmed that a new playable character other than Sora will be present in Kingdom Hearts III. They said:

Such a world will come out [where this is possible]... But it is something we cannot tell you right now.

This follows a previous statement where Nomura hinted at the possibility of a second playable character.

When asked about the world selection criteria in Kingdom Hearts III, the staff in attendance answered:

Although we put emphasis on the play-element of worlds, sometimes we like for the new worlds to be a surprise.

When asked if they meet with Disney representatives abroad to discuss world selection, Yamasaki replied that he does so on a regular basis to share his point of view with the world, and that "each leader goes [abroad] as a delegate."

Lastly, the staff stated that while D23 Expo has been confirmed in the past to present new information on Kingdom Hearts III, it is undecided whether this will be the case for the event's upcoming 2018 installation.

Kingdom Hearts III developers comment on Xehanort, Sora, Riku, and Kairi character models

17 October 2017 - 05:01 PM

During the Kingdom Hearts 15th Anniversary Commemorative Campaign Preview Night held at Square Enix Café Osaka on October 13th, 2017, staff in charge of the development of Kingdom Hearts III, such as series director Tetsuya Nomura, executive producer Shinji Hashimoto, and co-director Tai Yasue, met with fans and answered questions, providing snippets of information regarding the upcoming title.

During the event, Nomura introduced Mr. Yamasaki as the person in charge of character models for Kingdom Hearts III, jokingly saying, "If you’re not satisfied with a character, please remember Mr Yamasaki!"

Yamasaki reported the following:

Young Xehanort and Xemnas are still under development for Kingdom Hearts III, so their faces still need some adjustments. Since they're different from Kingdom Hearts II, the jaw is getting longer and the adjustments are laborious.

A model for Xemnas was previously shown in the Kingdom Hearts III Orchestra trailer, and a model for Young Xehanort was show in the Toy Story trailer at D23 Expo 2017. From the statement above, it can be inferred that they may not have been the final models.

Sora's height was also reported to be 160 cm - 3 cm shorter than Yamasaki himself. It is unclear whether this is Sora's original or current height; however, as Yamasaki had been commenting on models for Kingdom Hearts III, it is possible this is referring to the height of Sora in Kingdom Hearts III.

Regarding other characters' heights, Yamasaki said:

I have a proper idea of them. It is undecided whether to announce it or not though. But based on it, we can create models. For Xehanort…I cannot say it but, who knows, maybe he’s over 180cm?

Furthermore, when asked a question about whether he has been planning to create models for hooded characters such as the Master of Masters, Yamasaki responded:

Yes! I’ll make sure to do it! But [whether or not] to make them public depends on Mr Nomura. I’ve colored* in black the one I did.

*He might have been referring to the black cloak that the Master of Masters is seen wearing in Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover.

It was also reported that Riku's and Kairi's Kingdom Hearts III outfits are not quite done yet as they’re evolving everyday, and that they will have a hood. This statement may have been referring to the in-game models rather than the design, as Nomura had previously stated that Riku's outfit design had been completed. He had also commented that Riku's Kingdom Hearts III outfit was based on the one he's shown in in the Kingdom Hearts χ 3rd anniversary Key Art. In the illustration, Kairi is also seen wearing an outfit with a hood.

Donald Duck and Goofy make an appearance in Kingdom Hearts attire at Cast Appreciation...

03 September 2017 - 10:23 PM

Disney Cast Members in Donald Duck and Goofy Kingdom Hearts costumes were spotted at a Cast Appreciation Party that took place on Thursday, August 31 in Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida. The party was exclusive to entertainment cast only.

The costumes seem to be the same, if not similar, to the ones worn on Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween event in 2004 at the Magic Kingdom, just prior to the release of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. You can compare the costumes in the albums below.

Thanks to Jorge de Sousa Costa (@jorgecostacom) for the tip. The photos below of Donald and Goofy at the Cast Appreciation Party were taken by Brynée Kitaoka and JV (@borealis.dreams).

Kingdom Hearts III featured in October issue of PlayStation Official Magazine UK

27 August 2017 - 05:09 PM

The PlayStation Official Magazine UK has published a feature on Kingdom Hearts III on its October issue, commenting on the latest news on its development.

The spread focused on the inclusion of a Toy Story world in the game and aspects of the gameplay so far, as revealed in the D23 trailer released last month. It also summarizes some facts about the game, such as that it will be the last title of the "Dark Seeker Saga," and that Big Hero 6 was the last Disney movie chosen to be a part the game, and hence all other movies released after 2014 will not be in it.

You can view scans of the feature thanks to KH13 Social Media Team Leader Andrew Hankinson.
