Nomura discusses KH3D and Kingdom Hearts III

Today's issue of Famitsu Weekly has included an article about the Kingdom Hearts series. This article contains an interview with the director of the series, Tetsuya Nomura. He discusses Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and Kingdom Hearts III. Although a full translation has not yet been found or posted, these details about the interview are known thanks to andriasang.com.

Kingdom Hearts 3D
In case you've forgotten in the six months of silence, the three Ds in the 3DS Kingdom Hearts name stand for Dream Drop Distance. Development is currently 40 to 50% complete, Nomura told Famitsu this week. He also confirmed the inclusion of a secret movie.

Sora will be around in future Kingdom Hearts, so why does he look so cross?
Nomura dropped a bunch of vague hints about the game. Here's the vaguest: "XXX and XXX in Traverse Town!" This is apparently supposed to be surprising, so see if you can fill in the XXXs with surprising elements.

The game's story is enigmatic and quite puzzling, said Nomura The story will touch upon the hidden data in Sora.

Just one little gameplay bit: you'll apparently be able to work your way up to the rooftops.

Future of Kingdom Hearts
Regarding the future of the Kingdom Hearts series, Nomura said that those who are anticipating Kingdom Hearts III will find some answers in KH3D.

The Xehanort part of the Kingdom Hearts saga will end with KHIII, he said. He currently has a framework of some form in place for the continuation of the series after that, and Sora will remain as main character.

Regarding possible HD remakes of past titles, Nomura would only say that, separate from whether or not they will release remakes, they're looking into HD techology tests for past titles. (I'm not sure if this question and response is about Kingdom Hearts or just in general.)

Keep checking back for more!


i hope we will get some great news :)
NEEEWWWWSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -hugs it- Sweet sweet news. =w= <33 Oh yea, and what the balls does Nomura mean by, "XXX and XXX in Traverse Town!".......when I read that my brain filled it in with Sora and Riku.....but....if it's supossed to be "surprising"....um... e.o;;
Really? The future of the series will still focus on Sora? Good-bye, Keyblade War...

Good-bye, Keyblade War...



Well, the importance of Sora and the fact he's staying a character of focus was already a given, so it shouldn't be that big a surprise he ain't going anywhere. xD
Ok so... does that mean we will play DDD by this time next year? That means last year when they shown the trailer it was like 1% or 2%. That's lame. Dang they better finish that Final Fantasy game soon so production can speed up. :P
awesome HD remakes would be great and im sure they would sella ton
So this might not be the only info so far, but probably mostly is. It will probably be out in August of next year. Its good to be reassured that Kingdom Hearts will continue after KH3

Really? The future of the series will still focus on Sora?

Good-bye, Keyblade War...


That can still be, just because the story focuses on Sora doesn't mean we can't get games that show other stuff, right?

Makes me wonder how far in development bbs was in some of its early trailers.

Just throwing some things out there... Lea and Isa, Data Sora and Riku, some final fantasy characters, Ansem sod and Xemnas, Maleficent and Xehanort, some disney characters such as scrooge, some pixar cameos...

Sora looking cross?

Enigmatic, puzzling... perfect

Weren't you able to do that in kh1 to some extent?

I really hope this shuts up those kh3 whiners for a while.

Interesting.
*cry* News i almost forgot what kh news look like ready for TGS and a new trailer
So essentially, except for the HD updates part, he's told us a bunch of stuff that we already know. Sounds like a Nomura interview, alright.

haha yeah definately a Nomura interview
Can't wait for more news

BBS had a very strange development cycle. There probably wasn't any percent given to its completion until quite a while into the development.
But I can give a comparison, Nomura once said Re:Coded was 80% (Something like that, might have been 90, or 70, but you get the point) done, and that came out about half a year after said interview. So DDD is probably a year or so away, given this VERY rough estimate :P
50% !!!!???? that is great news!!!!! after six month WAITING :( but still... :D :D:D:D:D:D i am so freaked out :D about this!!!!!!!
Interesting. It's not a lot of news, but at least it's some news. 50% complete? So, we're basically going to be waiting a year, like the majority of us thought. XXX and XXX in Traverse Town! For some reason, even though he said its supposed to be surprising, I'm thinking Xemnas and Ansem SoD. Otherwise, it's probably going to be a couple of characters that only appear in pairs.
yeah its better than nothing but he couldve left the stuff he already said out
I wanted a keyblade war. Totally agree with Xehanort, I want to see what will happen as a result of that war and see all the different keyblade wielders flock to the keyblade graveyard. Not to mention, it would be a battle royale with multiple endings. That aside, awesome news.
I don't know if I want a KH4 . I think it'd be pretty epic if the games ended like that after a full cycle ~! Well I'm happy enough that kh won't be over but just thinking of how it'll be ... I mean up until now , everything had to do with Xehanort , I don't know how a new story will pop up and be awesome ... especially with Sora (plus he still pisses me off so yeah >_>) but then again I wouldn't want it like FF that is a series with totally dif plots just with similar elements (this case the keyblade) . Oh well , I guess we'll learn more abt kh4 in like 5 years from now so it's all good ~
OK so the full interview will be translated later correct? Becasue this one is just to short.
OMG OMG OMG NEWSSSS!!!!!!!!! -hugs News to dead- damn it
thank god,after 6 months it does really paid off :D
...... OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE~! 40% or 50% completed?! Great news!That means we'll have it by next year! Also, it looks like it has a lot of ties to KH3!!! YAYZ~! A secret movie? Of course, all games except Days and the original coded had some sort of secret ending, but the one for 3D will probably be for KH3! WHOO! Also, an HD remake of one of the past installments?! O________O AH I BET IT'S GONNA BE KH1! IS IT GONNA BE ON PS3?! OR WILL IT BE ON ALL THREE HD CONSOLES?! OH, IT'S TOO EXCITING! Sorry for all the noise, but this news just got me so excited, seeing as we hardly get news around here. :D :D :D
- Whether we’ll release an HD remake or not is another story, however we are considering doing an HD upgraded version of one of the past titles.

That's gotta be BbS. With the new line of PSP HD remasterings, it's gotta be.


That can still be, just because the story focuses on Sora doesn't mean we can't get games that show other stuff, right?


I was hoping for an entire series set back then. You know, new characters and everything.
