During now’s Kingdom Hearts III occasion in D23 Expo in Tokyo, at the top of the brand new trailer and songs by Hikaru Utada, Square Enix also showcased a video message by Tetsuya Nomura, that contained some extra info regarding the game and also the situation of development.
While the video wasn’t released, attendees provided many intriguing elements on social networking.
We learn that Nomura-san was reluctant in showing the Tangled world till now because of the difficulty of demonstrating the physics of Rapunzel’s hair. It can be wrapped around trees also it correctly interacts with the environment around her. When you stand in the end it also behaves as it should. It required a great deal of trial and error to get to this point. A city surroundings representing Corona from the Tangled entire world was temporarily showcased, such as many NPCs to make it feel alive. It’s potential to swim.
There will be many new keyblades and cooperative attacks in the game.
The Gummi Ship will include customization and will let players explore openly in an open world-like environment. There will also be parts including battle.
There is at least a different world that we have not seen is going to be contained at the game, however there was no explanation on its own nature. The gameplay at each and every world is completely different, and Nomura-san mentioned that the last stage is something he’s wanted to make for quite a while, even if he did not offer additional info.
Unusual Heartless will also create a comeback, requiring specific techniques to become defeated.
The majority of the creation for the animation and characters in the main portion of the game is complete, but more retains being added as time continues. As for environments, the first portion of the game is 90% complete. The next is between 60 and 70% complete, and also the subsequent parts are a key. The environment group is made of over eighty developers with the accession of outsourcing businesses.
Incidentally, we’ve seen rumblings on online forums and fan sites about an alleged mention by Square Enix the launch date could be announced at E3. We consulted with a few attendees and we couldn’t find anybody who could confirm this, and no report came from Japanese press that was in the event. It appears to be speculation by somebody on social networking wrongly taken seriously, since it’s quite uncharacteristic for E3 to be said in this circumstance at a Japanese occasion. We achieved to Square Enix asking for a clarification on the subject, and also we’ll let you know if we hear anything back.
