    Kingdom Hearts 3 marketing is officially the biggest joke I witnessed in the last years. With events like PSX Event and Jump Festa going on and the game supposedly coming out next year, choose to not show anything more in 2017 is beyond the realms of understanding.

[SPOILERS] Exclusive back story for Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage- shown at Kingdom Hearts Concert -First Breath-

On August 11, 2016, the first official Kingdom Hearts concert was held in Japan, called Kingdom Hearts Concert -First Breath-. Fans who attended the event were treated to orchestrated music from the Kingdom Hearts series. Voice actors for Terra and Namine (Ryōtarō Okiayu & Iku Nakahara, repsectively) were in attendance. Tetsuya Nomura, director of the Kingdom Hearts series, said "something was in the works" about a week before the concert concerning the voice actors. Something indeed was in the works!

Exclusive back story, which will not be included in-game for Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-, was reenacted by Terra and Namine's voice actors, exclusively for attendees at Kingdom Hearts Concert -First Breath-. This contains heavy spoilers, so read below at your own risk.

Thanks goes to @aibo_ac7 for providing information concerning the exclusive back story, @r_kane1 for providing a summary of the information, and Kayla Copeland (nichiei.translations@gmail.com) for translating the full dialogue.

Spoiler


UPDATE: This conversation is transcribed inside of the official Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - guide. It has both the Japanese conversation, and the conversation translated to English. It turns out this conversation was not between Lingering Will and Naminé, but it was actually between Terra and Naminé. View the conversation below with the official English translations thanks to @jsjunshen:

Naminé: Don't worry. You might forget about me . . . but with our promise I can come back. Yes. One day the light--it will be ours, and it will bring us together. And then--I'll be in your heart.

Sora: Right. Forgotten--but not lost.

Lingering Will: Aqua . . . . Ven . . . .
A Keyblade? Who are you?
I know you. We've met before, way back when. No, that wasn't you. You're not the one I chose. Where is he? Xe . . .ha . . .nort . . . . Is that you? Xeha . . . nort . . . . Xehanort!

Lingering Will: That's it. your Power
That's what I felt within you.
The power that conects to Aqua.
And to Ven's heart.

Terra: Where am I . . . ?

Naminé: In your memories. Traces of you were lost, so I found you through memories belonging to those you've met in the past.

Terra: Who are you?

Naminé: I'm Naminé. It's nice to meet you.
I'm a witch who can control peoples' memories.

Terra: A witch?

Naminé: Right now you're bound to two memories. One belongs to you, the other belongs to an unspeakable darkness--

Terra: . . . Master Xehanort.

Naminé: Your heart will soon encounter a familiar light. You must make sure she isn't lost to the darkness. You must guide her.

Terra: Her? You mean Aqua? I'm not sure what I can do to help, not like this.

Naminé: You must fight, Terra, like the others. You mustn't let your heart melt into darkness; follow your true memories, and you'll reach the light. She's headed there, too--to the same place. You must believe in promise, just as she continues to believe in you.

Terra: Aqua. Ven. One day I'll--I've never forgotten our promise. Never. I will keep fighting.


I feel like this is a step or two past having story points in interviews. Rip

 

At least we have the internet, so thanks for the posting, Jake, and thanks Twitter peeps I don't know for the info xP

While cool... wtf with having that scene be exclusive to concerts?

Huh So that's Terra and Namine's Connection. I hope we get a bit more info on 2.8 soon. I don't think it was that big of a reveal. It certainly wasn't worth putting in the concert. It would have been better in an interview.

OMG! I can't wait to see that! The feels are coming! The feels are coming! 

OMG! I can't wait to see that! The feels are coming! The feels are coming! 

this was for this concert only

OMG! I can't wait to see that! The feels are coming! The feels are coming!

Um....it said that it was exclusive to the concert attendees.

I meant in 2.8. I can't wait to see this in 2.8! Never mind... I read it wrong... 

I meant in 2.8. I can't wait to see this in 2.8! 

 

Yeah the scene won't be in 2.8, sorry!

Yeah the scene won't be in 2.8, sorry!

I am now waiting for the influx of people complaining that they're not getting what Japan gets and the people complaining about Nomura.

I'm not even surprised. Just another mule kick to the balls

Lol now they're putting plot details into concerts, that half of the fan base will never see? There are going to be a lot of fans who come back to the series once KHIII comes out who are going to be completely lost. Interesting tidbit though.

Yeah the scene won't be in 2.8, sorry!

 

No. I apologize for leaping without reading first. 

 

this was for this concert only

 

My apologies... I didn't read it thoroughly.  

Personally I think they just did this to confirm to everyone that Terra will definitely return. I think in regards to Nomura calling it 'exclusive back story' to 0.2 BBS, I think it was just to make those who attended the concert feel special. I don't think there's anything exciting or exclusive about it or else it would have been included in the main game. It doesn't make me feel "OMG WE NEED TO SEE THIS SQUARE ENIX!" It was just a little sprinkle for thanking them for coming to the concert.

I mean if it was just the voice actors acting as their characters on stage and not animated or something then I don't really care that it won't be in 0.2 and even then I don't think its that big of a deal if we don't see it

I'm sure they could easily have it animated and part of the game. I think it was cool the VA's reenacted the scene, shows something extra special. Having it animated would also be cool.

Yeah thats basically what I was trying to say. Its not really an exclusive premium kinda thing we need to see.

true but it would be cool to see it animated. I hope we get a real transcript of this reenactment-or at the very least a more detailed description. 

Yeah thats basically what I was trying to say. Its not really an exclusive premium kinda thing we need to see.

 

Well, that was honestly just a snippet of what happened, we are still translating it all!

 

I think this scene is supposed to give a hint towards crucial info, considering Nomura mentioned awhile back that 0.2 was meant to be '0.5' giving back stories on all 3 characters, but due to time, he had to cut it down.

So. Since it's NOT going to be in the game, it's kinda of a intermission? (If I'm using the right word...) It's somewhat like Compilation of FFVII from the Advent Children DVD? 

Cool. Not sure how Namine's speaking to Terra, but okay. And of course, exclusive to a private event that won't be shown anywhere else.

Thanks to the internet for that because we wouldn't know about that if it was only for those who went to the concert.

 

Was I excited for it? Not really.

Oh I thought it was the finished article haha have to wait and see then..
Is it really a spoiler if it's exclusive to a concert a vast majority of fans won't see though?

I am now waiting for the influx of people complaining that they're not getting what Japan gets and the people complaining about Nomura.

Well they aren't wrong. :P

This is definitely going to be Kingdom Hearts III material. I wonder if the English voice actors are going to reenact the scene in the American concerts lol! Regardless, this is amazing lore!
