With the primary Kingdom Hearts sport on PS2, its authentic characters had been unknown so the workforce added Closing Fantasy cameos to flesh out the solid.
“Now, there are such a lot of authentic characters from Kingdom Hearts which are so well-loved, and other people need to see extra of these characters. With Kingdom Hearts 3, since we did have so many authentic Kingdom Hearts characters, it was arduous to search out room for together with extra Closing Fantasy characters,” he stated.
“We’re looking for a very good steadiness for that. I do know that some followers had been involved about that and weren’t too glad and needed to see extra Closing Fantasy characters. That is one thing we undoubtedly are fascinated about. However simply with the sheer variety of authentic characters that we’ve got now, it is arduous to say what the precise steadiness goes to be and the way it will play out in Kingdom Hearts IV. We will not actually provide you with a agency reply on this simply but.”

“So far as the graphic qualities… since with every new title, the specs have been actually growing and there is a lot extra we are able to do by way of graphics, it sort of limits the variety of worlds that we are able to create in a way. Presently we’re contemplating how you can strategy that, however there can be Disney worlds in Kingdom Hearts 4,” he stated.
That graphical high quality extends to the brand new setting of Quadratum, including a brand new sense of realism to the collection.
“As a result of the graphics are extra practical this time round, I really feel like there’s extra of a sensible every day life side to Sora’s life. You possibly can see him go out and in of his room and spend time there. I really feel like gamers will get to see extra of the day-to-day routines he goes by means of,” stated Nomura.
“So far as worlds go, previously, we have featured loads of Disney worlds and amongst these, probably the most practical one was in all probability Pirates of the Caribbean. This time round we’re spending a while within the precise actual world. This was a problem we had for ourselves – simply to see how practical can we make this, and that is one thing that we’re engaged on proper now.”
