Nomura hints at customization being a possible element in Kingdom Hearts III during interview with Dengeki

In an extended version of Dengeki PlayStation's interview with Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura, the question was asked of whether or not Kingdom Hearts III would also have customization as a game feature.

Tetsuya Nomura answered that it would be considered depending on the reaction towards the feature in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep 0.2 -A Fragmentary Passage- as well as the consideration of whether or not they have the time to implement it.

You can find the direct quote from the interview below, with translations thanks to Catherine Mueller (nichiei.translations@gmail.com).

--The character decoration is the first in the series and is a novel component.

I thought that we needed something fun to play around with even in with the game's jam-packed volume, so the staff devised this at the last minute for me. It really changes the character's look, so please gather a lot of items and design your own Aqua.

--Will you use the decoration feature in [KHIII]?

We knew we could insert that feature into the game this time, but whether or not we can with [KHIII]...we have other priorities ahead of us so it depends on time, but we'll look at the reaction with [KH0.2] and consider it.


Would you like to see customization in Kingdom Hearts III? Let us know in the comments!

I don't see why not, I mean- *GASP* NO WHAT if in KH3 we could customize more than just Sora, but also the other party members?! ERMAHGERD NEED!

Yeah...no... Just...well...maybe, just not in important cut scenes. Game play only. Otherwise, no in general. Unless they having some multiplayer coliseum thing like in Birth By Sleep, then yes. That would be my opinion for now.

Except, any customization will go right out the window while Sora is in a Drive Form, since they each have their own color palate and design.

Maybe it won't and only the color will change according.

 

Stop limiting the scale of this game's potential, Kuno

Maybe I'll finally be able to fulfill my dream of making Donald Duck wear pants!

But we've already seen that it does. Guard Form has diamonds and Power Form has camo

We've had enough censorship in this franchise. Let the duck hang loose.

You know, customization goes beyond clothing options. Maybe I want to give Sora Mickey Mouse ears, did you ever think of that?

I mean I'm pretty sure it'll get a good reaction, so all we need is to cross our fingers that they'll have time to implement it!!

It amazes me how some people are so butthurt by the addition of customization

 

Newsflash:If you don't like it,DON'T USE IT if it makes a character looks "less badass in important cutscenes" to you

Yes!!! I've wanted this for ages and now it's got like a 95% chance of happening. If he's putting it in 0.2 he's not going to leave it out of KH3.

GIVE ME MICKEY COSTUME
ORIGINAL LION SORA COSTUME
KH1 OUTFIT
CLOUD FF7 OUTFIT
SQUALL'S ORIGINAL OUTFIT
TIDUS OUTFIT
SEPHIROTH's WINGSSSS
Oh, this could also mean that armour and accessories may show up on Sora's body when equipped!

Anyway, this is hella neat!!!!! I want to run around in a purple outfit with Mickey Mouse Ears AND Sephiroth wings!!!!!!!' Gah this is exciting

Yeah that would be great but although I think only change outfits would be better like in FFXV.

Let's keep it simple and clean :).

I think I will leave my characters as they are

From what I gathered, Nomura seems to be saying, "If the reception is good for 0.2 then we'll do it for Kingdom Hearts III". Which basically means, it will happen.

Give me shirtless Sora 

 

Give me Sora with swimming trunks

 

Give me Riku in a Winnie the Pooh costume

 

GO ALL OUT THE SKY IS THE LIMIT DAMMIT xD

That would be so awsome!

I hope they bring it into KH3, that would be a fun little extra feature to have, though I may just keep Sora and any other characters we might play as in their main outfit for canon events. But yeah, I hope they have time to implement it well, though I'd rather make sure that we're getting multiple playable characters first or not.

Thanks for this awesome news, Sora'spromise! This is pretty promising!

 

I'm pretty sure that the customization feature that'll be on display in 0.2 will be a rousing success, so it's a no brainer if it ends up in Kingdom Hearts III! If it doesn't, though, I don't mind! 

Absolutely, but make it cosmetic only. I don't want to see skill perks like KHUX does; it's cool and handy, but some of the ugliest accessories give the best perks.

I don't think we would be able to customize the Disney characters besides DG and maybe Mickey if they extended it to party members, but having that feature would be fun, even if I wouldn't use it even if I did wind up being able to play the game.

YES!!! Customizing the main characters was the best decision ever! Cat ears for everyone! :D
