Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Jun 202018

Kingdom Hearts III has been featured in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu, and thanks to translations from KH13 and Gematsu, we’ve learned lots of new things.

One part that stood out to me the most was that Nomura is concerned that Kingdom Hearts III’s high volume might cause capacity problems.

I’ve been hoping it will be a long game, so that sounds promising.

He also confirmed a “secret movie,” which most likely refers to the sort of secret endings past Kingdom Hearts games have had.

There are a lot of new gameplay details discussing mini-games, Keyblade techniques, and more.

The most confusing part is a discussion of the former Organization XIII members. One translation made it sound as though they were all back as humans, but a later translation sounds like the members of the new Organization (Xigbar, Marluxia, etc.) came back as humans but then became Nobodies again, possibly in a different way than usual.

Hopefully that will be clearer in the game itself.

Finally, Nomura touched on the topic of DLC and said that he’d like to expand the gameplay through DLC, with standalone DLC after they complete the main game. That sounds like they’ll focus on making the main game complete before they do anything else, so I’m not opposed to DLC in that context.

I can’t wait to play Kingdom Hearts III. The delay to January was disappointing, but it’s still not far off. Remember, if you want to catch up on the story before Kingdom Hearts III, I’ve detailed the best order to play the Kingdom Hearts games. Every game is important!

Are you looking forward to Kingdom Hearts III? What do you think is up with the former Nobodies?
