Nomura hopes to tell Birth by Sleep -Volume 2-'s story one day

Today, with the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX in Japan, Famitsu Weekly have included a special commemorative article in their October 2, 2014 issue. This article contains a detailed summary of the game, teases both of the new Secret Movies included with Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, and also contains a special interview with the director of the Kingdom Hearts series, Tetsuya Nomura.

In this interview, Nomura has revealed that he hopes to one day tell the story of Birth by Sleep -Volume 2-, when he is given the opportunity. Birth by Sleep -Volume 2- was of course the ending "title card" of the Secret Movie for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, leading fans to speculate that this might be a mystery game in the works. However, this movie was released in 2011, and according to Nomura today, "the story was severed and wasn't told".

—Among everything that was included in the FInal Mix version, what would you recommend?

 

Nomura: The Secret Episode. It's an evolution of all the Secret Movies I've put in the games so far, because it's playable. You can feel the pace of the story and the battle, so I'm glad I made it like that. By the way, the indication for Birth By Sleep -Volume 2- is still there. It shows the existence of Aqua's story in the Realm of Darkness. It means that she didn't just wander about in the Darkness for ten years, but that she passed through many experiences. However, it is a "Fragmentary Passage", as the same suggests-- that story was severed and wasn't told. I hope I can tell it when given the opportunity.

Cool. Maybe this means we could get a game where Aqua is the only playable character, and tell BBS -Volume Two- that way, or maybe mickey as well? Idk.

Well if KH3D Remake happens, it could probably end up being there. Or somewhere along KH3 like a prologue or something.

KH3 is going to have a long enough prologue as is..

Well, I guess that means no KH3 next year, if that's true.

That was never, ever going to happen even if they focused all of their attention on it.

They aren't remaking KH3D. Waste of resources.

I'm glad that Volume 2 is still a thing, I can foresee Aqua telling everyone her story in the Realm of Darkness, after their battles in KHIII. It would also be a way to give everyone a clearer perspective of what can be found even deeper into it.
