    There's a possibility we have just gotten the art for the title screen unless this isn't it. As much as I prefer the illustrated title screens, it would be pretty cool to see this artwork in animated 3D with Sora's clothes and hair moving in the wind and having the tides underneath his feet rolling in and out with a mixture of the light sounds of the waves crashing in the background and the KH 3 version of Dearly Beloved playing.

Dengeki PlayStation to feature Kingdom Hearts III: Nomura comments on Big Hero 6 world and Gummi Ship customization to be shown and talked about next, online element in the works, and more

The blog Hokanko(Alt) has published a summary of the interview that Dengeki PlayStation has had with Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura. This interview is to be published on the next issue of the magazine, which will release on June 28 (JST).

Below is the full summary as peovided by the blog. Translations are thanks to @Keytotruth.
  • Frozen was planned to be a world pretty early in development.
  • It follows the movie pretty closely, and Sora's story proceeds as Elsa's and Anna's move on.
  • The Keyblade from the world of Frozen transforms you so you have shoes for skating.
  • Elsa and everyone else don't join your team, but Marshmallow will offer your his help.
  • For Pirates of the Caribbean, Nomura wanted to experiment with different graphics.
  • Sora in a pirate suit is something Nomura really wanted to do.
  • This world made it in because he wanted at least one live action film to be in the game.
  • While the story does take place during the third movie, there are also elements from the second one.
  • There are a lot of gimmicks since you can move through land, sea and air. The Keyblade becomes a lance and a flag.
  • Nomura thinks they'll be able to show the world of Big Hero 6 next time.
  • Sugar Rush will be a Link Command as they announced. Also, there's the minigame called "Remy's Delicious Restaurant".
  • The reason why they showed the worlds of Hercules and Toy Story in the media/E3 demo was because they are the ones closest to completion.
  • Some impressions that theythey rece about the trial were about the camera. They are going to work on that until the last day.
  • This time [for this game], making everything from scratch was really tough.
  • The difficulty for the demodwas slightly easier than "Standard mode", but a little bit harder than "Beginner mode".
  • The powering up of each character is something similar to how they powered up from KH1 to KH2.
  • The director and staff from Einhänder are the ones working on the Gummi Ship portion. Nomura really liked their work, so he's looking forward to the finished product.
  • There is a Combat specialized mode and an exploration mode. You could say it's an open world Gummi Ship.
  • They will talk about Gummi Ship customization the next time.
  • The order you visit worlds in is decided up to a certain degree.
  • This time, there is no such thing as skippable worlds. This is because most people didn't see all of them in the previous games.
  • Right now there are no online capabilities, but they're thinking of adding something.
  • At this moment they're not looking into making any demo.
  • Information related to the New Organization XIII will be revealed as we move towards the release.
  • After some incident Aqua... (Note: This part is ambiguous, but it might mean that we see Aqua as she is in the trailers after a certain incident.)
  • If you play both KHIII and Union Cross, Nomura thinks you'll end up understanding Marluxia.
  • Since this will be the time for "everyone to settle things up", many characters from the series will make appearance.
  • They got the new song from Utada Hikaru really early on.
  • After giving her an explanation about the series and its contents, she made the song herself.
  • The special edition PS4 Pro was decided very early on. In order to find the ideal color, it was redone many times.
  • It will be covered with leather.
  • The controller will also be a new type with flashing lights on top of the touchpad with a custom design.
  • Nomura would like you to play the previous KH games and KHUx as you wait.
  • There's also the problem where we might be running out of space, so Nomura would like you to get connected to the internet in case they distribute online content.
  • KHIII's release is being prioritised over the promotion of FFVII Remake.
Stay up to date with KH13.com as we will be covering Dengeki PlayStation’s Kingdom Hearts III feature tomorrow!

Thank you for the updates!!

My friend and I are looking forward to this game's release!!

Super excited for the next trailer!

Super excited for the next trailer!

 

I'm expecting the Next Trailer to be shown at Tokyo Game Show 2018 (With Big Hero 6 in it) or at a early event before Tokyo Game Show 2018.

Didn’t Nomura say there would be a trailer NEXT month? Not to sound like a jerk, but why is everyone suddenly assuming well next see a trailer at TGS?

It was a mistranslation and instead of "next month" it was supposed to be "next months". You can find in on the interview made by Multiplayer.it.

 

I also thought it was going to be next month, but it's not confirmed yet :P

And the best hope is TGS since it's a big event.

 

 

Edit: "The Keyblade from the world of Frozen transforms you so you have shoes for skating", this really seems to be too good and very similar to Wisdom Form, with the difference that we'll have sophiscated attacks :P

The difficulty of the demo looked to be somewhat high since the enemies' attacks drained a lot of HP, so I even thought it was Hard Mode xD

 

I wonder what Nomura meant by them distribuiting online content. Would this mean that a physical disk wouldn't have all features and so we would have to download them digitally? I'm really curious about this. 

big hero 6 world next month you say? yahoo

  • This time, there is no such thing as skippable worlds. This is because most people didn't see all of them in the previous games.

If that's the case than I hope that means some of the worlds in KH3 are not filler and we need to play them in order to progress the main story. I hope the new and old worlds in this game are not like 100 Acre Wood or Atlantica in KH2 where we can easily skip them because they're not important to the main story.

 

  • There is a Combat specialized mode and an exploration mode. You could say it's an open world Gummi Ship.

I'm so looking forward to the Gummi Ships. I hope the battle/action sequence is similar to KH2. Plus, I really love the idea that Gummi Ship's exploration mode would feel like an open world. Especially since every star is a world and I would love to travel the galaxy from one world to another. I hope the exploration mode it's similar to like No Man's Sky.

 

  • Since this will be the time for "everyone to settle things up", many characters from the series will make appearance.

I like the sound of that but at the same I feel that the rest of the former Organization's members will return as well.
