More assets for Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- discovered; including Riku, Terra and more


neil98

In December 2017, Twitter users @Keytotruth, 13th Vessel, and @Xeeynamo uncovered many of the game files from Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A fragmentary passage- through hacking. 13th Vessel has now reported that they have uncovered "almost every model," including untextured character models for Riku in his Kingdom Hearts original outfit, Donald, Ansem the Wise and Terra; he has also found Riku's and Mickey's suitcases model. He has also found the files for Ventus and shirtless Mickey and many more, but there are no images available for those yet. In the mean time, you can view all of the assets available in the gallery below:

 

 

UPDATE [Jan 2, 2018]: 13th Vessel has uncovered the untextured character model for Terra-Xehanort's Guardian, which you can view in the gallery above. He's also found Kingdom Key, Kingdom Key D, Donald's weapon, and effects for the previously reported on Water magic, which were not viewable. Some maps and textures of models are still there even after having been deleted. For example, in the NPC folder, 13th Vessel found some folders for Daybreak Town, but they only had textures of scrapped models in them. (Note that there he didn't find any maps for Daybreak Town.)

 

The next step would be to find a way of seeing these textures to identify them, but 13th Vessel says that that's a very complicated task. He states that because of this, there could be many things that are scrapped that we are not able to view.

 

UPDATE [Jan 2, 2018]: 13th Vessel has uploaded the soundtrack's file names from Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A fragmentary passage- that he pulled from the game's assets. This list does not contain the game's opening song, "Simple and Clean (Ray of Hope Mix)."

 

You can see the list below:

The list comprises the following tracks, which can be heard throughout the game:

  • Always on My Mind
  • Dearly Beloved -Reprise-
  • Destiny's Force
  • Devil's Wave [1]
  • Devil's Wave [2]
  • Dive into the Heart -Destati-
  • Illusion Aqua
  • Hand in Hand
  • Bond*
  • Light and Dark**
  • Miracle
  • Missing You
  • Magical Mystery
  • Aqua
  • Sora
  • Terra
  • Ven
  • Dearly Beloved
  • Title launch***
  • Dark World battle theme
  • Dark World boss theme
  • Dark World field theme
  • Dark World field theme (Sleeping Beauty)
  • Dark World field theme (Snow White)

*This could be referring to the track "Destiny's Union" that plays when Terra is talking to Aqua.

**This could be referring to the track "The Key" that plays when King Mickey finds the Kingdom Key D and when he is ready to seal the door to Kingdom Hearts.

***This could be the brief music that plays when the player starts a new game.

 

Translations were provided by KH13 staff member Mio-chan.

 

13th Vessel commented that he was not able to view the soundtrack from Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover as it is a movie, not a game.

 

UPDATE [Jan 5, 2018]: We had another chance to speak to 13th Vessel about the NPC folders and the textures (with no models) found in them, and he explained to us, in detail, that some of the characters' models are found in folders whose names are identifiable with the code of the area those characters are seen during the game.

 

For instance, the untextured models for Yen Sid, Riku, Riku's and Mickey's suitcases, and Kairi, were found in folders with the code "yt" - for Yen Sid's Tower. Similarly, the models for Aqua and Terranort were found in Dark World ("dw") folders; and the models for Luxu and the box he carries, as seen in the Keyblade Graveyard, were appropriately found in a Daybreak Town ("db") folder.

 

UPDATE [Jan 6, 2018]: Keytotruth has uploaded an image of the model of the Gummi Ship found in the files of Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A fragmentary passage-.

 

You can see the picture below. Note that the colors were added to the render.

Back in October, 13th Vessel uploaded a couple of videos on the Destiny Islands area in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- using hacks and mods. You can check out more about that in the article here. What do you guys think about these assets? What else do you think we will find? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks for sharing them!

 

While hacking a game isn't exactly what developers desire, I do like this look behind the scenes. We see so little of the development process itself that, speaking for myself, I can't really picture how it works and how much effort is put into these things to assure that the final product is what it is.

 

These assets are something we wouldn't normally see and they're so different from what we play on the end in terms of colors and look. Yen Sid is still a little frightening but I enjoy a different view on the game nonetheless.

Why is Ansem the Wise there?

I’ll give you a hint; who was the man in the coat at the ending scene of 0.2 that leads into Blank Points?

Why is Ansem the Wise there?

Probably for this scene. Still weird that they made a complete face model for him, when they could have copy/paste the model of luxu.

Yet, they could have take it from KH3.

EDIT:

 

Ansem's Guardian found in 0.2!

This is incredible! Truly remarkable! I'm actually surprised Luxu has an actual face, I mean I figured he did, because in some of his cutscenes with the Master of Masters their noses were visible. But wow! I'm blown away!

 

Now if only someone could rip the soundtrack! That'd be the icing on the cake.

Oh, if someone would rip the soundtrack, that will be golden! Because I gotta say, Back Cover's compositions were really top notch! :D

It's interesting to see the Palace Courtyard model in Castle of Dreams. Maybe they were planning for us to head right to the door of the castle by passing through it? I would've really liked for us to have more places to explore in Castle of Dreams in 0.2
