Also I like how he is surprised that Dark Aqua overshadowed Frozen's reveal.
I'm also somewhat grinning about his "I just wonder if everyone will be okay."-statement as it can be seen twofold.
He's talking about the in-universe characters but more about the fans themselves because of his surprise to the strong response.

Well yea, Nomura, this shows that many people care about the characters you created despite any mediocrity in the writing sometimes.

I hope it's useful DLC like more keyblades. Also, it's hard to imagine a season pass for this series. For kicks, one way I imagine them doing it is by creating KH3 Final Mix and having a long, but split up epilogue.

Omggggg... Love how people are like: he said there are more worlds. This means 1000 worlds left and Jungle Book confirmed.... like no? Wtf. Maybe 2 worlds or 3 with a minigame world like 100 acre woods. I don't think we should espect more. The game is huge. I think there are going to be 9 Disney worlds in total. Not more than that. And stop saying that Jungle Book IS a world. You don't know. People are acting as if they already now. Nobody said PoTC and look...

I love how Nomura mentioned that "not many big games seem to release their game and be done with it". As in, a lot of games don't release in a full and completed form and are designed from the beginning to also sell DLC and extra content outside of the base game. It seems Nomura doesn't like this nor agree with it and that makes me very happy as I had always feared there being a Season Pass or something for this game, and I'm glad Nomura isn't fond of it. That being said, the fact that he does want to continue releasing content after the base game launches is also fantastic. Nomura has the approach to DLC that I fully support: Focus on making the base game a fully-finished product that isn't an advertisement for DLC, then think of extra content to extend the playtime of the game AFTER the base game has been out for a while.

Yo ho, yo ho Nomura says more Disney worlds to come. Let's be happy that this at least means more than 1 Disney world is left.

And DLC possibilities mentioned again. That's nice.

In the next interview regarding DLC, Nomura had this to say:
“I do want to look into potentially releasing DLC after [launch], but nothing have been solidified or decided on what we want to do or what we will do,” he said. “I don’t think I’ll ever really release a season pass of sorts either, because I’m not fond of that model.”
Oh bless you Uncle Nomura !!!

Isn't the concept of Final Mix a Season Pass of sorts?
Last time I checked, don't think so

Example would be Tales and Persona, think of Golden and FES as the Final Mix to Persona, additional content, game improvement, season pass would be all the XV content and well that game did good, no one wants that

A Final Mix isn't just NEW content, it should be content that fundamentally changes a standard playthrough as is, with new combo modifiers, enemy colors, collectables, and scenes. It shouldn't just be tacked on endgame stuff.

I think at least one yes, they will.
Just a hint of the appearance of Rinoa was in the credits of KH2.
Man, being a Rinoa fan is tough. No Dissidia, no WOFF, and now no KH.

I really hope Nomura isn't being secretive about the other playable character only for it to end up being Riku again. If Riku isn't the only other playable character then that's fine, but if he is then that's not really anything new.

Agreed. Playing as Riku isn't very exciting, especially if it's only for some short segments of the game. Now, if we get to play as Roxas again, or Kairi, or Lea or someone like that, that'd explain why he's keeping it secretive.
