New Nomura Interview: Special Announcement?
Written by Audo
Wednesday, 25 March 2009


The latest issue of Famitsu Weekly has surfaced, and contained within its pages is a brand new interview with Tetsuya Nomura. Among discussing many of his works including Final Fantasy XIII and Advent Children, Nomura also drops some more details on 358/2 Days and Coded. But that's not all, at the end of the interview, Nomura hints that there will be a Special Announcement regarding the Kingdom Hearts Series in the upcoming week! Check out the translations below, courtesy of HeartStation!

Tetsuya Nomura Interview Translations -Letís chat about the directions youíve taken with other titles. First from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.

Nomura: Development is in the last stage. Itís finally in debugging now. Since the game is set up in mission modes, if you only clear the required missions, the game can be played to the end in a short time period. However, if you complete everything, the volume of the title is exceeding. Iím excited about multiplayer mode. Without having a mission purpose, youíll have fun competing with each other. (Laughs)

-How is the content of Kingdom Hearts Coded going on the mobile phone?
Nomura: Because it is being distributed in episodes, a certain number of them is created and the stock is guaranteed when the title is purchased.

-Thank you so much for your time. Is there anything else to add?
Nomura: Iím very excited in the direction these titles are moving in. Next week, we plan on making a special announcement regarding the Kingdom Hearts series - please look forward to it.

What do you think the special announcement could be about? Be sure to tell us your theories and ideas in the KHInsider Forums! We'll keep you posted as more information arises.

Finally! One of the big franchises MIA in this generation of consoles.

P.D. If doesn't get announced, don't shoot the messenger. :D

Could this be connected to this? http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=356512

Somehow I doubt it though since you'd think Kingdom Hearts would look more immediately recognizable.

Probably something along those lines. Of course people are going to hype it up as being an announcement of a new game when it doesn't sound like he's hinting at anything like that.

If it is KH3, I hope to god it's for HD consoles. The best thing about the series is the insanely high production values.

Kingdom Hearts series will merge with another universe and it won't be Disney's.

Anyone know any big IP's that like jpop and are looking to print money?

Seriously, it's complete bullshit. It's like they're trying to build up hype for the announcement, but as far I can tell it usually doesn't work that well. I could understand if they did it the day before, but a week?

Has there been any indication of how much Versus is done? If they aren't close to being done, I doubt KHIII is in development.

Eh handhelds already have their games. And actually, for all intents and purposes, the PSP game is pretty much KH3...

True, but then I'd hope for KH4 on PSP as well. I'm gonna enjoy it on any system so I can fling arrows and rocks from my lovely ivory tower

Normally I would agree, but wasn't there already a PSP game announced along with a DS and cellphone version?

And that's why they are not going to announce a new main KH before BBS is released.

I was going to say, the 1up writeup didn't say anything about any announcement.

I could care which console the next KH game appears on (series has never appealed to me), but I just have to say I find it funny when people make comments like this. Yes, both of the PS2 KH looked great - but they were on the PS2, the least capable (graphics-wise) console last generation. So, I kind of doubt SE believes they have to be make the next installment on the best possible hardware...
