This week’s Famitsu features a short blurb from Kingdom Hearts III director Tetsuya Nomura, who the magazine spoke with at last week’s D23 Expo in Japan.
In it, Nomura details Sora’s two new attack systems—Keyblade transformation and Attraction Flow—and promises further quality improvements on top of what we’ve already seen.
Briefly discussing Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix, Nomura also says the team is brushing up the game even more so than Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix.
Read the full blurb below.
It’s a privilege to be apart of today’s event, the first D23 Expo Japan. The last time I stood in front of fans was for the premier presentation of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, so it’s been a long time. I was moved by everyone’s excited response. If I have the chance I’d like to do this sort of thing again.
I wanted to put out the information for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts III quickly for those who couldn’t attend, so we made the trailer public online. Since they’re both still in production, the trailers are short, but I hope that fans enjoy them. We are brushing up Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix even more than 1.5—even the staff is doing their best to improve it as much as possible.
Also, this is the first time that Kingdom Hearts III was shown using in-engine footage, but it’s not in a condition where viewers can fully grasp it. We’re still going to improve the quality much more after this. In the trailer you see three of Sora’s new moves, and they demonstrate the two attack systems, the first being Keyblade transformation. The Keyblade transformation is different for each Keyblade, and the battle style changes as well.
The second is the Disney attraction-inspired Attraction Flow. Attraction Flow is an evolution of Kingdom Hearts 3D’s Flowmotion. With Attraction Flow, you can choose which move you want to use against which enemies on the spot, and even during an enemy outbreak you control Sora’s attacks. These new actions are just a fraction of Kingdom Heart III′s new components, so please wait for information hereafter.
