Character customization could make its way into Kingdom Hearts 3. Game Director Tetsuya Nomura told Gengki it all depends on how players receive the feature in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep 0.2 ? A Fragmentary Passage.
Kingdom Hearts 3 Considering Character Customization
Here?s the excerpt of the interview, which was translated by a fan from the?KH13 forum:
?I thought that we needed something fun to play around with even in with the game’s jam-packed volume, so the staff devised this at the last minute for me. It really changes the character’s look, so please gather a lot of items and design your own Aqua,? explains Nomura.
Whether it gets included in Kingdom Hearts 3 is still being evaluated. Nomura explains, ?We knew we could insert that feature into the game this time, but whether or not we can with [KHIII]… we have other priorities ahead of us so it depends on time, but we’ll look at the reaction with [KH0.2] and consider it.?
Birth by Sleep 0.2 is releasing on January 12 in Japan and January 24 Worldwide as part of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. The package also contains a high-definition remaster of the 3DS title Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance.
As for Kingdom Hearts 3, there is still no concrete info on its release date. With Final Fantasy 15 now out of the way, one would assume that Square Enix is now throwing all their resources into KH3. But for now, all we can do is wait.?It’s also worth noting that Nomura is directing the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and it’s widely rumored that Square Enix is working hard to release the first part of the game this 2017.?
What?s your take on character customization in Kingdom Hearts 3? Is it a feature you want to see? Or would you rather that Nomura and his team devote time to other aspects of the game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
