Tetsuya Nomura has left a message for fans in the Kingdom Hearts III artbook

Recommended Posts

As is tradition, the director of the Kingdom Hearts series, Tetsuya Nomura, has included a message with Kingdom Hearts III to commemorate the game's release. The message is available in the artbook included in the deluxe edition of the game, and goes over the director's feelings about the game's release, his wishes for after you finish the game, and his deliberation to choose the game's ending (but don't worry, there are no spoilers)!

You can read Nomura's message below.



I am assuming that you already have a copy of KINGDOM HEARTS III if you are looking at this page, but as I do not know if you are reading this before or after you played the game, I will write my foreword without any spoilers.

I had quite a tough time writing the story this time around. So many characters appear in this game, with each of them having their own set of problems and needing to choose their own fate. They are characters that were born over the course of ten plus years, and each character has fans who love them. I ask for everyone to see their stories to the end, and see what each of them grasped from their stories. I rewrote the ending multiple times, and took a lot of time deciding how I want it to play out on the screen. After much thought, I ended up keeping it simple. I believe that KINGDOM HEARTS III is truly completed when the two thoughts - whatever you feel from playing the game, and my thoughts that I’ve secretly placed in the game - match up together. I hope that everyone playing the game will complete the game for us.

The release of this game was truly a long time coming. We did make you wait for a long time, but I’m sure it will feel like a blink of an eye for you to reach the ending compared to the time it took to get here. However, I believe the reason as to why this series has lasted this long, is because of the feeling that it leaves you with after you finish playing the game. It would make me happy if you talk with friends about KINGDOM HEARTS III, the new addition to the series, and if that triggers you to think about stories that haven’t been told yet.

KINGDOM HEARTS Series Director,
Tetsuya Nomura
