Re: Hikaru Utada to Return for Kingdom Hearts III

Eh, when I saw the title, I read it as Shimomura returning for KH3. I was like, hasn't it been confirmed? But I was wrong.

And I was glad.

Holy mother of Mew, heck freakin' yes. Not that I don't like Hikari and Passion or S&C and Sanctuary, but the series needs a new theme song. KH3 is a major title after all, and there's no way they're going to simply go with previous ones, right?

I'm glad that it is Utada who will be performing again. Aw, yes.

Everybody, don't ever let anybody tell you dreams don't come true because they do. Also "no" is never forever.

Glad to have her back! Wouldn't have felt like a full blown numbered title without a new song from Utada.

Re: Hikaru Utada to Return for Kingdom Hearts III

While i personally would have preferred if they got someone else this time around for variety's sake, still good to hear she'll return with a new theme regardless.

Re: Hikaru Utada to Return for Kingdom Hearts III

My third train ride for the week.

If there's a fourth, I'd die of pure joy.

Jump Festa will undoubtedly offer us another several rides on the hype train. If there's not a fourth this week, you won't have to wait very long to die of joy.

Re: Hikaru Utada to Return for Kingdom Hearts III

Are we sure it's going to be a new song? It could just be him saying he's willing to license Hikari/simple and clean/Passion/Sanctuary again.

LOL if it were that, he wouldn't have said yes and said "no" or not replied at all since they've license the songs for every damn game released since KH2 without saying a word or caring.

No way is SE licensing those songs for their biggest nextgen release when they are old.

New numbered game, new song.

Re: Hikaru Utada to Return for Kingdom Hearts III

Not gonna lie... I didn't see this coming. At least, not this soon. I didn't think we'd get a confirmation until near the game's completion.

Re: Hikaru Utada to Return for Kingdom Hearts III

OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG! Gah! I can't take this! Words are failing me!

Is it weird I'm even more excited about this than the II.5 and III trailers?! I think it's because we knew those were happening eventually, but this was still up in the air, and now- Now I can die happy. O

MG. It's going to be great to hear another new song from Utada. Not that I don't love the others, BUT KHIII NEEDS TO BE EVERYTHING IT CAN BE, OKAY?!

Anyway, I'm hoping the song is "Final Distance"-y or "Beautiful World" like. I also wouldn't mind something in the vain of "This One (Crying Like a Child)", or hell: even something like the super repetitive (but awesome!) "Apple and Cinnamon" would be fine by me. Anything she does is just going to be amazing, okay?! And now I need to go listen to UH tracks this instant!

Also, if Disney channel doesn't advertise the perfection that's going to be KHIII, I'll eat my shoe. They should advertise II.5 (really they should have advertised for I.5, but they can allude to that in a II.5 commercial), and then advertise III.

Yeah...

Buying a million tickets for the hype train, guys.

You were the one who said "Utada isn't a big part of the series" in that one thread...8D

Yeah, same. I wonder if Teruzane spilled the beans too soon...Whatever. This is really good press for Disney and SE regardless if it was supposed to be said now or later, and I'd say considering what Utada has been going through for the last few weeks, the warm regards from fans should be nice... :c

No, it isn't weird at all (because honestly this news is way more exciting to me as well because I love her music xD)

KH3 does need to be everything it can be. A new song from Utada is just another HUGE cherry on-top of the icing considering they are doing what they can to bring please the fans.

Also, if Disney channel doesn't advertise the perfection that's going to be KHIII, I'll eat my shoe. They should advertise II.5 (really they should have advertised for I.5, but they can allude to that in a II.5 commercial), and then advertise III.

THEY DIDDLY BETTER. KH3 deserves all of the promotion.
