In a recent interview for Dengeki PlayStation magazine, Tetsuya Nomura, director of the Kingdom Hearts series, has stated that almost all worlds apart from the Olympus world in Kingdom Hearts III will be new. Although considered obvious from the trailer, this seemingly confirms for the first time that Olympus is indeed one of the worlds in Kingdom Hearts III.
The other notable point from this is re-confirmation that the majority of the worlds we visit in Kingdom Hearts III will be new to the series. With that in mind, what worlds yet to be seen in the Kingdom Hearts series do you think will be visited by Sora and company? Let us know in the comments!
[Asked about the battle gameplay of KH3]
Nomura: The battle gameplay returns to commands such as 'attack' and 'magic' rather than deck commands. I thought that king of gameplay styles had the royal right to be used in a numbered Kingdom Hearts title.
[Asked about worlds]
Nomura: I can't speak in detail, but apart from Olympus Coliseum, nearly all the worlds are new.
[About Sora's movement in the trailer]
Nomura: For this title we are implementing free running so Sora's mobility isn't ordinary (laughs). Most things can be overcome with jumping and free running, and you can charging up walls and such
