Tonight, Tetsuya Nomura made an appearance at the Kingdom Hearts World of Tres concert in Osaka Japan and revealed some new information about Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind. This information is in its incredibly early stages so for now please take it with a grain of salt.
According to some Twitter users, a new trailer for the DLC will arrive next month. It is unknown whether this will be at the Games Awards on December 12th or at Jump Festa 2020. This information was tweeted by @ftrkikikixxx and @lunesacree (who wasn't in attendance but translated other tweets). Luneacree also translated that there will be new difficulties, including an extremely easy mode and an extremely difficult mode where you can't use cure.
- DLC release next month (editors note: other tweets say this is a trailer release rather than DLC release)
- Photo Mode
- Slideshow Mode
- Fast Pass Mode
- “Black Code”
Photo Mode allows you to pose any of the game’s protagonists (and even antagonists in one hilarious example photo) in your chosen setting with props and background effects. Example props included a giant pancake, sparkles, a Dusk, and dream eaters
Slideshow mode lets you take the photos you’ve created and add background music, transitions, zooms and create a slideshow. The example photos were hilarious and showed an incredible range of possibilities.
Fast Pass Mode and Black Code allow you to change difficulty settings. There were too many potential settings, went by so fast, but Fast Pass Mode lets you essentially one-shot kill enemies and had at least 7 attractions / spells stacked up above the combat menu.
Black Mode lets you tweak difficulty to extra hard including choosing how much health you have. The example battle was against Marshmallow in Frozen world. The demo player had to constantly block his swiping attacks and had no way to heal (used a kupo coin though).
@CrystalynH was also in attendance of the concert and had this to say about what was shown:
Director Tetsuya Nomura treated the audience to an exclusive look at some of the other extras that will be available with the DLC! Looks like the next trailer will drop next month & the release date will also be announced next month!
The extras shown included a “Greeting Data” mode where you can choose a location setting, characters, items, and sfx and create a diorama with it and take screenshots. The “Slide Show” mode then let’s you put those screenshots to music in a slideshow. #KingdomHearts
The “Premium Menu” mode has two parts: “Fastpass” allows you to go into your menu at what looks like any moment and change settings so you’re overpowered. In contrast, the “Black Code” allows you to make things ridiculously hard (like blocking healing, etc). #KingdomHearts
We consider all of this information as legit at this time but please consider it as a rumour until officially confirmed by Square Enix.
