More info as I come across it but:


Kingdom Hearts 3D is a mysterious title.

There will be a secret movie.

The Xehanort Saga will end with Kingdom Hearts III.

Think of Kingdom Hearts 3D as -- "The Initiative" before KHIII.

There will be "answers" about KHIII in KH3D.

KH3D is 40-50% done. (lolvague)

Apparently main character Sora "has not changed" - This might be just appearance-wise, but again this is vague.

The game will focus on the "hidden data" inside of Sora.

There are characters that will appear in Traverse Town, but their names have been censored (i have no idea). There are two censored names.

Sora will stay the main character and Nomura has plans for the series even after III


HD remasters of past titles are in consideration.

Here's a bit of the interview with Nomura:

Wasn't this already known apart from the 40-50%?
Late 2012/early 2013, calling it now.

Wow, Nomura... way to regurgitate everything we already knew besides the 40-50%.
Thank you though, Sham. <333

re: KH3D/KHIII info in Famitsu.

KH3D is A mysterious title or THE mysterious title? -confused-

Nomura, we get it. KH3 marks the end of the Xehanort Saga. Don't need to repeat it every interview.

Didn't Nomura tell us something similar about KH3D earlier this year? Without using that exact word, at least?

Lol. 40-50% is good. Now let's hope it doesn't take a year to get to 65%.

So, he's still whiny and pining for Riku?

re: KH3D/KHIII info in Famitsu.

40-50% completion for a Square Enix game that started full blown development in September is some damned good news, actually.

re: KH3D/KHIII info in Famitsu.

He listened to Kairi's words and didn't change at all? Now he has a Peter Pan complex?

This game may also have a similar (if not the same) setting as coded in which it takes place in a data-world. (I'm still trying to confirm this but it seems to imply you will be "touching the data in 3D".)
No...Please no...I love Re:coded but I'd rather they are touching the data rather than exploring a data world. ; _;

re: KH3D/KHIII info in Famitsu.

Take the "data-world" with a grain of salt.
It's worded all weird in some of the info I'm getting.

re: KH3D/KHIII info in Famitsu.

I'm thinking January 2012 for Japan. :)
Yeah, I'm thinking the same as well. The likelihood for a fullblown TGS showing followed by a gradual release of media (sort of like the months leading to BBS's JP release) just got way higher.

re: KH3D/KHIII info in Famitsu.

I'm sure the data world will have some importance, but I don't think it'll be the main setting.

-waits patiently for info- Thanks Sham for all of the news! The fact that we now know how far in development they are makes me excited. I hope they keep up this stride and finish it by the end of this year. :3

Expect a nine minute super spoiler trailer at Jump Festa for the launch. If TGS has like a blow-out of news for DDD, will there be a new sub-forum for it? Like with BbS and Re:coded?
