Without further ado… The full interview with series director Tetsuya Nomura is still currently incomplete and a work-in-progress, but we will continue to update this page as more progress is made.
We spoke to Director Nomura, not just about the mysteries surrounding his work, but also the future of the series. In KH1 and KH2, you generally use a Gumi Jet as means of traveling, but this time, I wanted to think of something that makes you feel like you were jumping and falling right into the world. However, after I explained to them that this was just the direction I had decided I want to take the KH games, they finally went along with it.
I think that this is one of the great strengthes of the system, it gives the game a unique flavor compared to other KH titles, while not dragging down the ammount of control you have during gameplay. Nomura: Probably during the production of Birth by Sleep.
Nomura: I thought that the Flowmotion ability was something I wanted to do in the next Kingdom Hearts, so why not do it now with this title? I planned on showing that this is the direction the Kingdom Hearts series is headed. Since you had to deal with every action the player made, the opinion coming forth in the beginning was that it was difficult.
But since I explained to the staff that this was the sort of direction Kingdom Hearts was going, we did it anyways. Nomura: Yes, I suppose so. We have made KH titles before in which the story is divided between characters, but because some people were of the opinion that each story felt like a short-story, this time we decided to think of the plot as one string from the beginning. For it to be like that, we had to consider many things regarding how to best handle switching back and forth between which character the player is controlling.
We considered whether we should let people choose when to switch, but we wanted some sort of thrill. I thought, I want to put in something else on top of that, and it took the shape of forcibly switching the character being controlled with Drop. To bring that system into reality, it would have been weird setup-wise to make friends with Heartless and Nobodies, so we went with creating a new type of being called Dream Eaters.
We had to show they were cooperating with Sora and Riku to fight enemies, so riding on their backs and the like with link attacks was necessary too, which made our workload incredible. Nomura: The only one I drew myself is Meow Wow. They drew for me in high spirits, and came out with one interesting design after another. Nomura: I heard from many fans that they wanted to play as Sora again soon, and I felt I wanted to answer them. This is symbolised by Riku being chosen as a Keyblade Master at the end.
How did you choose them? Worlds they wanted to have appear, what they wanted to do there—I received proposals for both those things, and I chose from among them.
Nomura: No, in the first scenario they planned to have Leon and Cid and the others like always. Also, another reason was that in this title, Traverse Town is a world in which many things must be explained, and Joshua is just right for the role of explainer. Nomura: Those were originally written by Oka Mr. Masaru Oka: Scenario and Cutscene Director with revisions by me.
I think pictures would have been a good way to do it too, but text does have the advantage of allowing people to reexamine the necessary parts straight away. Nomura: The truth is, we put that condition in as a trap. With only the same conditions as always, being able to view it condition-free if you clear the game on Proud Mode or having it unlock when you collect a certain number of trophies like up until now, there are some people who end up only playing to see the secret movie. I wanted to make it so that you can solve it if you notice the regularity, and also I would have been in trouble if I had forgotten it myself, so I went with that.
The English letters there surely mean we can hope for KH3 next? Nomura: I will leave that to your imaginations. Was that KH3D? Nomura: Well, yes, I think so. Nomura: I left that a mystery in order to intrigue you all, of course. Nomura: There are many familiar characters. However, fundamentally who they are is still a secret. Please look forward to finding out whether those seven will actually be the 7 Guardians of Light.
In the next title, will that be the key to bringing back the people who are sleeping inside Sora? That data contains the details explaining the way to connect lost hearts. Finally, when will next play a new Kingdom Hearts game? Before the final battle takes place, we will question Nomura about the storyline of KH3D. Nomura: It means both of those things. In the story it also talks about how abandoning the self leads to losing the heart.
Nomura: Sora and co. In the first place, the worlds in the rift between darkness and light have different rules than other worlds. Traverse Town too reforms its shape every time, which is why the version that appears in this title is clearly different than the version in KH1. King Mickey was surprised at the time, seeing his Keyblade and noticing he harboured the power of Master Xehanort.
As a result of the actions of the Brown Robed Figure, they all were in a state where they had gained the power to transcend time. The Brown Robed Figure explains the facts. The thirteen were summoned at the same time, this time thanks to Young Xehanort who borrowed that power. However, apart from Young Xehanort, that does not mean that all the members transcended time. Nomura: Yes, it does turn out that way.
The mechanics behind how they were all able to exist at the same time is a mystery. From KH1 on, Ansem has returned no matter how many times he has been defeated, perhaps the same sort of thing happened. Does he remember that?
Nomura: The nature of the being known as Xion and all memories to do with her were erased, but he would remember other things. Nomura: To search for his friend he needed the power to move between worlds, and there is no way to do that other than become a Keyblade Wielder. At the time, wanting to be made a Keyblade Wielder, Lea saw a message recorded by Ansem the Wise in the past and, knowing it was dangerous, used the Corridors of Darkness once more to go talk with King Mickey and the others.
In the original scenario, we had planned to have Lea able to use the Keyblade when he ran to Sora. Did they return as humans like Lea and the others?
For them to have been with Xehanort and the others, perhaps they were collected after they had become humans and before Lea and the others woke up.
