MdRadio Returns – Nomura Comes To Spill Final Fantasy XV / Kingdom Hearts III News?

ffxvedit
MdRadio
will be returning soon, and the host and the merchandising manager of Square Enix Japan, Hidemi Matsuzuka, will be making a podcast with his special guests, Ichiro Hazama (Theatrhythm producer) and Tetsuya Nomura (Final Fantasy XV director). This special podcast focuses on Square Enix’s merchandise products, but sometimes there are interesting game details as well.

In the first podcast last year, Nomura said that they had decided when to show Final Fantasy Versus XIII again. He also revealed that Square Enix was supposed to show Versus in 2012 and there was a reason why it wasn’t. He said would understand it when we get the new info. Eventually it turned out that Final Fantasy Versus XIII had become Final Fantasy XV and moved to PS4 and Xbox One. At the time of E3, Nomura gave more details about FFXV and Kingdom Hearts III during the second radio show.

Meeting...

Matsuzuka meeting with Hazama and Nomura

According to Matsuzuka, MdRadio will be returning very soon and we should get more news about it later this week. He also posted a picture of a meeting with Hazama and Nomura where they are probably discussing the contents they will be talking about during the podcast. Let’s not forget that it’s less than two months until Tokyo Games Show 2014, which may lead Nomura to tease something about Square Enix’s plans for the biggest Japanese gaming event. If the same thing happens like previously, it might be possible we get some very small teasing about FFXV and KH3.

Please, be only a little excited.

Final Fantasy XV And Kingdom Hearts 3 Will Not Be Featured Heavily At E3, Another New Announcement Hinted

stella
Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts producer Shinji Hashimoto was interviewed by Famitsu for this week’s issue regarding Square Enix’s plan for this year’s E3.

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix’s release dates have just been announced with a small teaser for Kingdom Hearts 3, but Hashimoto says that it will take a while until they can release new information about the latter game. Hashimoto also clarified the misunderstanding regarding the report from earlier this March in Thailand’s Comic Con of Final Fantasy XV certainly showing up at E3. He claims that the exact answer he gave was “I can’t answer yet.”. He later on confirms that Final Fantasy XV will not show up at E3 but new information will come out at later events this year, and adds that new information will be released on “something else” instead at E3.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX Pre-E3 Screenshots

KHII_event_01_EN copy_1401446206
We got you a big bunch of new Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix screenshots! The 2nd Kingdom Hearts HD collection contains Final Mix versions of Kingdom Hearts II and Birth by Sleep, and there will be new HD remaster cinematics of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded as well. The game will be out later in 2014, exclusively for PS3.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep FINAL MIX is a never released title to Europe featuring the origins story of Kingdom Hearts. It includes completely remastered graphics, which makes the D-Links, Shotlocks and the triple protagonist story lines of Terra, Ventus, and Aqua better than ever. If that wasn’t enough, this title is a seamless port of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep from the PSP to the PS3.

 


Kingdom Hearts II FINAL MIX brings back the trio of Sora, Donald, and Goofy to traverse once again through the worlds of Christmas Town (Nightmare Before Christmas) and Space Paranoids (Tron). The never-before released version for Europe showcases one of the greatest battles to ever commence between Sora and Roxas. Kingdom Hearts II FINAL MIX brings all sorts of additional new content including new enemies, mini-games, items, and much MUCH more!

 


Last, but certainly not least, HD remastered cinematics of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded round out the compilation of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. Not only was this game fully remastered into high quality graphics, but a number of the most memorable battles have also been recreated into full cutscenes.

Square Enix Investor Is Expecting New Big Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest Titles in Fiscal Year 2016

Noctis_VersusXIII-side
Credit Suisse Group AG, a multinational financial services holding company, is expecting new big Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest titles arriving in fiscal year 2016. (April 2015 – March 2016) That’s why the company has decided to reduce its shares in Square Enix in views of their limited prospects: among a few titles, the fact that new big releases from the Final Fantasy an Dragon Quest series are not being expected before the fiscal year 2016.

This would be a logical statement since Square Enix is expecting a 5 million drop in coming software sales for fiscal year 2015, which is no doubt due to the lack of big franchise releases such as Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III. Read more about the report here.

Could These Five Disney Worlds Appear in Kingdom Hearts III?

khEver since the reveal at E3 2013,  both Square Enix and Disney have remained quite silent when it comes to Kingdom Hearts III. After it, we have received only one gameplay trailer and a few statements on the development, but in reality, we barely know anything about the story and the new worlds the game is featuring. Since nothing has been confirmed by the developers, we collected five Disney movies/worlds which might make an appear in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts games.

When it comes the Kingdom Hearts series new worlds have always provided something unique for the gameplay and they play a big part of the story. Is there anything we haven’t experienced yet? There are so many classics and new releases coming from Disney that the possibilities are nearly unlimited. Here are a few ideas of which worlds should be featured and why:

frozen1
FROZEN

Who has been able to avoid all the hype and love this movie is receiving on the internet?  Not to mention, this movie is one of the top crossing female produced movies of all time! If these aren’t enough to make Frozen to the new Kingdom Hearts game, I don’t know what would be. Actually, we haven’t had much of winter areas in the series before and that’s why Frozen’s  ice cold world would be a perfect addition. Who wouldn’t love to see a next-gen winter landscape?

starwars

STAR WARS

This legendary movie saga is one of the most iconic productions ever done! It has a diverse world and it could provide some seriously cool space action for the players. Not to mention that lightsabers are quite similar to keyblades! Fierce heroes always need even more powerful villains and he Star Wars series has plenty of them to provide. Such as Darth Vader himself!

In the coming years, Disney will be pushing out new Star Wars sequels. Including them to the Kingdom Hearts series would be a good attempt to gain new fans for both series.

toystory

TOY STORY

Toy Story is one of the most successful animation series in the world in terms of popularity as well as critically. So, why not bring some Toy Story goodness for Kingdom Hearts fans?  When entering different kinds of worlds, Sora and friends would change their form. Wouldn’t it be quite awesome to see Sora and friends turning into toys (perhaps Play Arts figures!) when starting their adventure to meet Woody and Buzz?

Since the almighty Zurg is quite a similar character to Darth Vader, why not make them villain partners! That would create a funny twist to the story! What do you think?

The director of the Kingdom Hearts series has stated he would like to see Toy Story world appearing in the upcoming games. Let’s not forget that there were renders for Woody and Buzz in Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix but they weren’t used. This could mean Toy Story is really on its way to Kingdom Hearts this time!

cars

CARS

Vroom! Cars is one of the new Disney IPs that have gained great success. And what could it provide for the fans of Kingdom hearts? Since we already talked about transformation then perhaps Sora and friends would turn into cars in this world. That way the developers would have a chance to create new experiences and perhaps some funny driving mini games.

monsters

MONSTERS

Monsters just received a sequel which helped the old movie saga gain new fans and remind old ones of its existence. Adding the characters as allies and enemies could bring more personality and variation to Kingdom Hearts. One nice idea would be playing with the doors. In the Monster movie each door opens up to new area, and using this method, the development team could make us frustrated or happy.

There are plenty of Disney movies that might appear in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts games. What do you think? Which Disney movies should appear? Why? Post your thoughts to the comments section?

Tetsuya Nomura Comments On Latest KH3 Trailer

5257cb4d1f7d7

Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura confirms that the footage in the latest KH3 trailer is definitely in-game material. However, he also states that it doesn’t really fully showcase what they have in mind for the final product and the team is still working hard in improving the game’s quality.

I wanted to put out the information for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 and Kingdom Hearts 3 quickly for those who couldn’t attend, so we made the trailer public online.

Since they’re both still in production, the trailers are short, but I hope that fans enjoy them. We are brushing up Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 even more than 1.5 – the staff is doing their best to improve it as much as possible.

We’re going to improve the quality much more still after this. In the trailer you see three of Sora’s new moves, and they demonstrate two different attack systems – the first being Keyblade transformation. The Keyblade transformation is different for each Keyblade, and the battle style changes as well.

The second is the Disney attraction inspired Attraction Flow. Attraction Flow is an evolution of Kingdom Hearts 3D’s Flowmotion. With Attraction Flow, you can choose which move you want to use against which enemies on the spot, and even during an enemy outbreak you’ll control Sora’s attacks. These new actions are just a fraction of Kingdom Hearts III′s new components, so please wait for additional information in the future.

Tetsuya Nomura talks about Kingdom Hearts 3 in Playstation’s “Conversations With Creators” Video

As part of Playstation’s “Conversations With Creators” series, Tetsuya Nomura gets featured for the second time (the first time talking about Final Fantasy XV) to discuss about Kingdom Hearts 3 this time around.

The entire video is in Japanese but worry not! Famitsu has published a transcript of the interview and it was translated via @sqexgal.

5257cb4d1f7d7

So many fans were ecstatic with the announcement of Kingdom Hearts 3 back in June. Could you give us another run down of the series and the new title Kingdom Hearts 3?

Nomura: The Kingdom Hearts series has a lot of Disney characters, and you play as original characters, traveling to the various Disney worlds. It’s a story about the “heart” as the series unfolds. It’s a story that’s been ongoing for more than 10 years and continues into Kingdom Hearts 3 where we’ll see the conclusion of the Dark Seeker Saga.

Since it’s the latest console game in the series since Kingdom Hearts 2 which released in 2005, what kind of changes and evolutions can we expect to see?

Nomura: I think when you watch the in-development trailers, you get a feel of the depth that’s possible on a console title. In the case of mobile systems, the amount of information is limited, but with the home consoles you can make a game with a wide field of view. It’s been such a long time since Kingdom Hearts has been on the home console, that I think you can feel the considerable scale of it.

On that large a scale, I expect we’ll be able to enjoy even more dynamic action.

Nomura: Kingdom Hearts is a series where action continues to evolve. With the past spin off titles, we did something new and the bold action elements changed each time. One thing I want to do with KH3 is to pick and choose the challenges and unique systems from the spin off titles while keeping the system based in the flow of KH1 & KH2.

What’s an example of bold action?

Nomura: Sora’s mobility has really improved. There are so many possibilities, but implementing all of them would be extravagant, so right now I’m considering what elements and to what degree they’ll be liberalized. After all, it’s an RPG as well as an action game. It does have that “jump as far as you want” kind of the action characteristic.

Jump as far as you want? That’s insane!

Nomura: In the actual game there will be some sort of limit, but this time we are adopting the “free run” style like in current action games, where you can run around, climb, etc. Additionally, your aerial ability and jump ability rise rapidly, so it feels like the action elements are really extravagant. I think people who have played KH2 might understand it easily, it already has greater mobility than Sora’s Final Form from that game.

That kind of mobility, no doubt the next gen system PS4 has the ability to realize it?

Nomura: I think that the PS4′s power is capable of handling a diverse array of actions in a wide area and battles against large numbers of enemies.

Are you powering up the map’s traits as well?

Nomura: We’re preparing a fair number of actions that involve the world maps. Things like climbing up a cliff that crumbles with falling stones, and enemies lifting up a building that you are in.

5257cb4dce0b9

In the E3 2013 trailer, we see a large number of Shadow Heartless squirming and moving almost like a tidal wave. It seems like the enemies’ mobility has evolved too.

Nomura: This time we are focusing our attention on developing the AI. The AI of both your allies and enemies has evolved in a way that hasn’t been seen so far. Before when a large number of enemies appeared, they all followed a program action pattern. But this time each enemy behaves according to it’s own thought process. I think it’s something that has been drastically powered up compared to the previous KH titles.

5257cb4e3c88a

Speaking of allies, will the actions of our travel partners Goofy and Donald change as well?

Nomura: Their AI is also being powered up considerably. Since Disney characters have concrete personalities, I want them to act according to their own thoughts instead of just giving them an order and having them obey like in the Final Fantasy series. Relating to their AI, we’re configuring it so Donald and Goofy act more like themselves.

Even when they cooperate and mobile, it’s not like you give them clear instructions like before.

Nomura: The direction we’re taking in their growth is to have it so they consider the situation, and help out accordingly. As the player is busy controlling Sora in battle, they consider how they’ll participate and their actions increase accordingly.

With the PS4′s specs and memory volume, the PS4 is able to implement those features?

Nomura: Well, even with the KH games so far, we’ve made it as seamless to the best of our ability, but the data is resident in the memory… So we include as many actions, motions and effects as possible. Luckily, the PS4′s memory volume is big, so it helps.

5257cb4d9cf98

Bold action, map features, and enemy AI. That’s a lot to squeeze into one screen. When I consider it compared to KH2, it seems to become a pretty different game.

Nomura: Since it’s a numbering KH title that crosses into the next gen, I think you’ll be able to feel how it’s evolved proportionately.

5257cb4e0b381

How about the graphics?

Nomura: We’re aiming for a photo realistic representation combined with a tone of each Disney world.

You’ve mentioned before that KH3 has a new shader being developed for it, can you tell us about it again?

Nomura: This isn’t the official name, but it’s something we call the Kingdom Shader. You saw it a little bit in the E3 trailer, this visual of a Disney 2D produced painted image represented in 3D. This time, when I was thinking about how the graphics in KH3 would be visualized, it started with Takeshi Nozue working in Visual Works, and he made patterns of various visuals for me. He gave me this “painted looking visual” pattern and I wound up showing it at E3. Visual Works makes pre-rendered footage, and this is based on a way to make it work in real time.

Is the painted looking visual something that you’ve wanted to implement for a long time?

Nomura: Since the very first title, the graphic gradation was made with the intention of representing the painted look of Disney’s animations. But with the hardware back then didn’t have the capability to adjust the lighting freely, so we tried to portray a painted visual in the textures we used. But this time the hardware’s capabilities are better, there is no option of “not using light.” You don’t get a sense of graphical evolution just by setting old graphics to HD, my goal with the next gen isn’t to do something that reproduces the pre-rendered scenes from KH1 & KH2 in real time. I considered the concept of the visuals and thus the representation Kingdom Shader was created.

I think all the fans are wondering, what worlds will appear, what enemies will we battle against, etc… Do you have anything to share about that?

Nomura: Not yet right now. (laughs)

Nothing, huh? But of course new worlds will be introduced, right?

Nomura: As for worlds, I’ve made some choices and started making them, but at this stage I can’t announce what world and which characters. Information will come little by little… There are a lot of new worlds since there are so many Disney titles that haven’t appeared yet. As for familiar worlds and characters, you can expect that the locations will be completely, the visuals will be different.

Are the plans for KH3 to utilize the DUALSHOCK 4 functions?

Nomura: Like Final Fantasy XV, KH3 is being developed in DirectX 11, so in what ways it will use the PS4′s functions hasn’t been decided concretely yet. Right now we’re in a stage where we are making note of the hardware and it’ll become clearer in the future. When I have an idea, I think how about we use the DUALSHOCK 4 touch pad? So I think I’d use it in some form, but right now nothing is decided.

Are you thinking about corresponding functions with tablets or the PS Vita?

Nomura: Naturally I’m considering external devices, but I’m still thinking of ideas right now.

Many things can be realized with the PS4, but there seems to be a lot of troubling things too.

Nomura: I suppose so. Ideas I think are original are already being realized by other makers, so we are waiting to see what they do, but it’s also nerve wracking. So far I’ve made games on a variety of hardware, but since I want put in as many elements as I can, I have a lot to think about. Because there are various possibilities, I want to make the kinda games that stand out as interesting.

As someone who has seen the generation changes of many systems, what about the PS4 has impacted you?

Nomura: I thought it was overkill. (laughs) As expected I gradually accepted it and then I wanted one. (laughs) Players are swelling with expectations, but to make something suitable for this system, this is a hurdle that developers must overcome. The things you can do have increased immensely, so once you start broadening the possibilities, it doesn’t end, the possibilities just grow. You’re pressed to choose what ideas to keep and what to toss. The announcement at E3 has passed, and I am still feeling the huge response that KH3 received. Everyone was so happy in that moment, I’m challenged by how I’ll live up to that expectation with this title. It’s a big challenge when you have this system where the power of expression is so high. There have been a variety of systems so far, but I feel like this one is the greatest mountain to overcome.

Not just in Japan, but fans around the world are waiting.

Nomura: The mountain is being exceeded so far. I think we’ll be able to do something, I believe in my staff.

So are the Final Fantasy XV team and Kingdom Hearts 3 team influencing each other in any way?

Nomura: Well, when they see the other team, they get inspired by the great things they see, but that’s because that’s how things were created in the Square era. KH3′s development started later, so it’s not as far along, but I think that it’s good motivation.

By the way, we’ll see the end of the Dark Seeker Saga in KH3, but what will happen after that?

Nomura: Kingdom Hearts is a Disney title, so I can’t speak for them, but naturally, in my own mind I have ideas about what happens after KH3. About characters, and developments. Maybe sometime there will be a chance to talk about that, but rather than thinking out the concrete details regarding that, right now my first priority is completing  KH3. I want to put out KH3 quickly.

We’re looking forward to it. Alright, any last messages for the viewers?

Nomura: Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2 were for PS2 and we skipped the PS3 and now we are releasing Kingdom Hearts 3 onto PS4. The power of expression has increased drastically, and from the developments accumulated so far, even the gameplay by itself, I think that it’s become something with depth. So that the day fans can experience it for themselves, we are all working are hardest, so please look forward to the next update.
