Quantcast
Kingdom Hearts III will see a smaller number of Disney worlds By Erren Van Duine on July 18, 2017 at 2:03 PM

A new interview with Tetsuya Nomura in Famitsu this week sees further explanation on Kingdom Hearts III and its on-going development.

Speaking with the magazine, Nomura notes they’ve wanted to use a Toy Story world since around the time of Kingdom Hearts II. In order to make sure that world got into KHIII, plenty of repeated negotiations were necessary.

The Toy Story world itself is set following the events of the Toy Story 2 movie as a canon part of the Toy Story universe. Although it wasn’t shown off in the trailer, Sora is initially mistaken for a video game character recently released in that world.

Early on, Nomura told the development team he wanted to give Sora the ability to ride on and fight in mechs. A different gimmick is being prepared for the other floors in the Galaxy Toys store. The Toy Story staff were very surprised at the quality of the character models in the game.

As for the rest of the game, Nomura says the Big Hero 6 world is progressing well but news on that end is still far off. The number of Disney worlds in general have been lessened from Kingdom Hearts II, however, the amount of content and density of each world is now greater.

As for when exactly Kingdom Hearts III will see its release in 2018? Well, “Please wait for the proper followup report,” says Nomura. We’re likely in for the long haul.

    Everyone please forgive Nomura lol

  • Dod

    Absence of Nomura = FFXV
    Presence of Nomura = KHIII

  • Its fine. I play KH because i like the original cast.

  • Jesiah Grant

    Same here, I hope Riku is the 2nd playable character.

  • Dod

    I really hope they don’t pass on the whole FF side of the game, as it’s been the case for the recent side-games (which I don’t count as KH’s but that’s personal).

  • Riku really stole the show in Dream Drop so I hope it’s him too. He did lots of badass stuff at the end of KH2 too. So if they’re gonna pass on letting us have Riku, at least let him be in the party. And other than RIKU here’s who I’d want to play:
    Terra free of Xehanort
    Aqua as she was in that KH3 demo
    or Axel.

  • Yeah the last time we saw a FF ref was Zack. That’s sad. I wanna see some Kefka as a hidden boss. Noctis and Lightning should be in the story. Maybe Ace in the tournaments.

  • Let me be clear, I like Zack. What I meant by “sad” was that only him in BBS way back on PSP. Since then there’s been not even a hint of FFs.

  • Patrick Bateman

    you’re not alone, aside from Birth by Sleep, the rest of the games imo could’ve easily just been explained in cut scenes or even an Anime… I have dream drop, but got bored after only a couple hours into it because of the repetitive levels all the way back from KH1 : i hear it’s the better games of the spin offs so i’ll eventually go back and finish it. Birth by Sleep I think I only completed 1 story and got side tracked with a different game I can’t remember..the other spin offs i played and beat them all and imo were a complete waste of money and time.

  • Jesiah Grant

    Axel would be a welcome addition, but I really want Riku. He’s my favorite character, so much better than Sora in my opinion haha. Nothing against him, just prefer Rikus journey over Soras

  • I like Sora too. But people are allergic to making him have more coolness and attitude. He was getting that in KH2 but they wont stop regressing him.

  • Dod

    These spin offs were basically just quick fillers to distract fans waiting for KHIII, and I have to say I’ve got lost trying to follow the story even though I’ve never bought them (just by reading and watching gameplay videos), but yeah they didn’t seem very interesting to be honest and as you said, the Final Fantasy portion of the game was simply inexistant. Let’s hope they surprise us in 2018.

  • Jesiah Grant

    I’m interested to see how his character will evolve in kh3

  • Axel may be the darkest character of them all if he has to kill Isa.

  • Jesus Christ

    Fewer number of DISNEY worlds. More original worlds?

  • Jesiah Grant

    Would be the very few people to actually die in kh, I can only think of master eraqus, will be interesting to see what Isas motivations were to join Xeahnort.

  • DiZ/original Ansem is dead for good too I think.

  • Jesiah Grant

    Nah hes lost his memory and resides in the realm of darkness. I remember a secret ending involving Ansem the Wise chatting to Aqua. The clip is called Blank Points.

  • Jesiah Grant

    Theres plenty of original worlds already established, It will be interesting to see if there will be any new ones besides the ones below:

    – Destiny Islands
    – Twilight Town
    – Traverse Town
    – Daybreak Town
    – Radiant Garden/ Hollow Bastion
    – Hollow Bastion
    – Castle Oblivion/ Land of Depature
    – The World That Never Was
    – Keyblade Graveyard
    – End of the World

    I’d like some of these worlds to return, however worlds like Traverse Town have been done to death.

  • I remember that too. But I thought he said he didn’t have much time left and that he would be gone too soon. And new could feel that his memory erasing was the first sign of that.

  • Jesiah Grant

    Nah just said he was slowly losing his memories, nothing else. I guess he could be saved from the realm of darkness along with aqua if there still together

  • KH needs to go ahead and have pure death. It happens. Stop holding these kids hands.

  • Jesiah Grant

    Agreed, I feel that someones going to permanently die in KH3. Perhaps Terra. IDK, I think a bittersweet ending may be better than a super happy everyone returns ending. Alas KH isnt Final Fantasy so who knows

  • If things had ended with KH1 Sora would have lost Riku to the void. That was bittersweet. So was Aqua sacrifice for Terra to return to the Radiant Garden in BBS. So KH3. Ending with true death for some heroes would be great.

  • Jesiah Grant

    Looking back along with 358/2 days there are actually more bittersweet endings then I realized. Its just the fact the devs don’t have the balls to actually kill them off permanently. I mean its nice that its possible for Xion to return but it really makes her death have less of an impact in the game.

  • maybe they only return but never are major factors in the story again, written out

  • Jesiah Grant

    Guess we will find out aye, sora has so many people connected to his heart that can be brought back. Roxas, Ventus, Xion. Am I missing anybody?

  • dwayne

    How can we get the dream sword in this game

  • Well Riku and Kairi and Donald and Goofy count too as theyre souls have empowered him too.
    I bet after 3 everyone will go their separate ways and the story will finally be about connecting all worlds into one again when Xehanort’s dead.

  • Jesiah Grant

    Will be interesting to see who the next antagonist will be beyond kingdom hearts 3

  • Yeah it will for sure. But I want Sora to go back home and wrap things up with his parents before going on another quest. He hasn’t even got his GED yet.
