Nomura shares new details for Kingdom Hearts III in live Q&A during Square Enix Presents at the Tokyo Game Show 2018


CheeseyFlame

A live Q&A recently took place during Square Enix Presents at the Tokyo Game Show 2018 between Nomura and the Japanese voice actors of both Sora (Miyu Irino) and Aqua (Megumi Toyoguchi) with host Akira Kawashima.

 

Nomura answered several questions including if this instalment of the series will be the last, if online play was a possibility, if Kingdom Hearts III will have a secret movie and more. Miyu Irino also answered a question about the difficulties of voicing both Sora and Vanitas.

 

You can read the entire Q&A below, translated thanks to Audrey on twitter:

MC: Nomura-San; like Aqua has turned to darkness, yeah?

 

Nomura: Yeah it’s really too bad she fell to the darkness. I can’t tell much more otherwise it’ll be a spoiler but yeah, it’s quite unfortunate.

 

Irino: I was asked if this was the end of Kingdom Hearts, what is the verdict, Nomura-San?

 

Nomura: This is not the end of Kingdom Hearts, just the Dark Seeker arc. Sora’s story will continue after this, but first, Kingdom Hearts III!

 

MC: Terra, Aqua, and Ventus as well as Xehanort- we want to know their ages.

 

Nomura: We didn’t really have set ages. Terra is around 20, Aqua is about 18, Ventus is 16, and Xehanort is uh...Young Xehanort is 18-20, Master Xehanort is like 80 or something.

 

MC: Was it difficult to voice both Sora and Vanitas?

 

Irino: At first it was hard to voice Sora in the beginning, but I was able to get used to voicing him over the years. For Vanitas, it wasn’t that bad but just having another mindset. My voice kind of changed as I aged, so I had to adjust my voice to fit the characters.

 

MC: Will there be an online game play option, Nomura?

 

Nomura: We haven’t included it in Kingdom Hearts III, but the idea was talked about during production. We just want to finish Kingdom Hearts III first, then we’ll think about other options.

 

MC: Will there be a KH3 secret movie?

 

Nomura: Yes, yes there will be. I don’t want to say spoilers, but it’ll be kind of a different type of presentation, such as a DLC with a secret movie or something...maybe.

If Xehanort is 80, then how old is Eraqus?? They look like they’re around the same age during the KH3 chess scene.

Means if Roxas looks like 16 year old Ven when he was born, then he gets 17 years biologically at the time of KH2?

Does he go to KH3 for 18 years?

Kingdom Hearts 3 takes place immediately after the events of Dream Drop Distance. Sora and Kairi are still 15 and Riku is still 16 in Kingdom Hearts 3. As for Roxas he may look like Ventus but he's still Sora's body. Sora became a heartless when he was 14 and his nobody, Roxas, was born shortly after that in Twilight Town. Since he's Sora's body Roxas was 14 when he was born. Then after 358/2 Days Roxas turn 15 one year during his time with the Organization. Roxas is 15 in KH2.

I thought both Terra and Aqua was like in their 20s. I was wrong with Aqua's age. And I was thinking Xehanort was like 70 years old. I was off by ten years. xD
