To many fans of this series, Kingdom Hearts coded is the "black sheep" game of the bunch that seemingly adds nothing to the overall plot of the Xehanort Saga. Nevertheless, there are a small number of fans that adore the game and see it for what it is: a fun title with a lighthearted story and a lot of gameplay innovation.
For fans on both ends of the spectrum, this trivia will be a treat for you all!
Most would think the inception of coded came under fairly normal circumstances; a meeting, some ideas thrown out, gets an approval, and then the game is made. Actually, that is exactly right...except Nomura was drunk when it happened!
Kingdom Hearts coded co-director Hajime Tabata, known for his directorial work on Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII & Final Fantasy Type-0, brought up in an interview that series director Tetsuya Nomura was drunk late at night when he began explaining the idea of coded, using a whiteboard to get all of the planning done. At the time of Nomura’s initial drunken planning, the game wasn’t really going to happen but at some point in the future the idea developed into something more and thus coded was born!
Makes you wonder what else is planned in the midst of inebriation at Square Enix.
