Interviewing Tetsuya Nomura about KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8
※ Because the information is shown without images, mistakes are possible.
Was the goal for 2.8 to be on PS4?
Nomura: It was originally planned because we didn’t want you to wait for KH3 while playing nothing. Because we wanted you to experience the world of KH3 as soon as possible, with KH3D being the preface of KH3, we wanted to include works that used technology from KH3, so it being on the PS4 was inevitable.
The current development situation?
Nomura: At the moment I can’t clearly announce how much time is left. Because it’s also developed simultaneously with KH3, there are portions that use the same technology and I can’t discuss about it at this time.
Nomura: It has become three works that are in HD. Because KH3D had two screens, it was remaked in a way that it uses one screen. The other two works don’t contain that many elements because they’re new works that use KH3’s technology.
Nomura: It contains a story of Aqua traveling in the Realm of Darkness. It begins immediately after the secret episode of KHBBSFM. We plan to include elements that are part of KH3. The volume is a short episode that is about as worth as one world from the KH series.
