Dengeki PlayStation magazine has hit its 600th issue and with it they have plenty of info about upcoming Kingdom Hearts titles. Upcoming Kingdom Hearts titles include Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Kingdom Hearts III, and Kingdom Hearts Unchained X. This interview was translated by Kayla Copeland for KH13.com.
There was plenty of news and screenshots revealed. Kingdom Hearts III will be the conclusion to the Dark Seeker series and will finally see the end of Xehanort. From another tweet, we know in Kingdom Hearts III we won’t find out what Kingdom Hearts is. The topic of Kingdom Hearts will be discussed more than in previous entries though.
Kingdom Hearts III will feature a final battle against Xehanort. It will also be revealed what has become of the protagonists from Birth By Sleep, Terra, Aqua and Ventus. Two worlds have been announced so far for Kingdom Hearts III: Big Hero 6 and Tangled.
New features include Sora’s ability to change the form of his keyblade. We have seen this in the past with the Lingering Will and how Terra, Aqua and Ventus were able to ride theirs. Attraction Flow will be a new type of attack that is based on rides and attractions from the Disney Parks. The ones that we have seen so far in trailers include rollercoasters and the teacups.
The interviewer attempts to ask some questions about the ‘Lost Master,” the ability of Master Xehanort’s keyblade, and further details about what Kingdom Hearts is. All these questions are shot down almost immediately hinting that we might get these answers in Kingdom Hearts III.
The importance of Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -Fragmentary Passage- is highlighted next. You will play as Aqua as she wanders through the dark realm. Players will reveal details previously unknown about the darkness and there might be some new truths learned. The location of the three from Birth By Sleep was meant to be revealed in a 0.5, but it was decided to make a 0.2 and only tell Aqua’s story instead.
What do you think of some of the new information? Do you think that it’s more of a tease than anything? Are you looking forward to the KH games of the future?
