Kingdom Hearts Piano Collections In The Works

Kingdom Hearts Ultimania has updated their site with a rough translation of an update at Square Enix Members (Japan)

Square Enix Members (Japan) updated today to reveal that after several games (and one more on the way) in the series, it has been decided to release a Kingdom Hearts Piano Collections.

The page where the announcement was made contains a video by Kingdom Hearts composer Yoko Shimomura discussing the project, and you get to hear two brief snippets of tracks for the album. One is unmistakably Dearly Beloved, but I’ll have to hold my hands up and admit I couldn’t place the second track from the little I heard of it.

It seems the album is to be released this May, but 3 tracks (please bear with me if this is wrong, I’m attempting to translate a language I have very little knowledge of) will be heard as part of a music event starting at 5:15pm on April 2nd at the Yoyogi Ku in Shibuya, Tokyo.

We’ll keep you updated once we know more.

Interview With Zexion Voice Actor (English)

MeleeGurl from Kingdom Hearts Ultimania conducted an interview with the English voice actor for Zexion, Vincent Corazza.

KHU: When you first started your work as a voice actor Vince, was there someone that you looked to as a mentor/inspiration?

Vincent: My first real inspiration were the voices from Scooby Doo when I was a kid. It was my favorite cartoon, and I used to love imitating the voices on that show, and I actually got a chance to meet and work with two of my biggest influences on an episode of the New Scooby Doo a few years ago: Frank Welker who plays Scooby and Freddy, and Casey Kasem who plays Shaggy.

KHU: Looking at Zexion’s character, which aspect of voicing him did you find most rewarding?

Vincent: It’s always hard to pinpoint one thing that I enjoy the most about any character that I work on. For me it’s always a blast to become a completely different person by just using my voice. I did enjoy the fact that Zexion is always very calculating and guarded. He’s not your typical loud, abrasive bad guy; he’s more devious and always plotting.

KHU: What was your first experience in voice acting Vince, and do you have any special memories of it?

Vincent: My first experience was a class called Microphone Technique that I took while studying theater/acting at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. It was a second and third year class that really opened my eyes to the art and techniques of working in front of a microphone, and I realized that I could actually have a career in that kind of work.

KHU: If you were to change something about Zexion’s personality, what would it be and why?

Vincent: Nothing really. I like that he is different from the other organization members, and he seems to be more devious and calculating.

KHU: Do you have any thoughts on the Kingdom Hearts series as a whole, and if so, what are they?

Vincent: It’s been a lot of fun being a part of it. The creative team are really great people, and I enjoy working with them. They are all incredibly dedicated to making the games as enjoyable as possible for the fans, and they put a lot of time and detail into making sure we stay true to the characters.

KHU: Of all your voice acting jobs Vince, how would you compare voicing Zexion to any of your other characters?

Vincent: I have enjoyed every character I’ve played, and it’s very hard to make comparisons, since they are all a part of me and my creations, but like I’ve mentioned before, Zexion’s a much more calculating personality and that is an interesting characteristic that I enjoy portraying.

KHU: Zexion is known to be the “Cloaked Schemer.” If you were to have an Organization XIII title, what would it be?

Vincent: I think titles and nicknames are usually given by others, so it’s kind of hard to come up with one for myself.

KHU: What is your favorite pass time when you’re not acting/voice acting?

Vincent: My favorite thing is to spend time with my wife Jane, and I also love to surf whenever I can.

April V-Jump 358/2 Days Scans

Sorry for the delay folks, I’ve had a pretty busy week with midterms and a big project.

First up is an update by Minimin’s Memo regarding an article featuring Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days in the April edition of V-Jump, which was released on the 21st.

The article contains new information on the Customize feature of 358/2 Days. According to the Customize feature, there are variations in magic of the same type, resulting in different effects. For example, Blizzard is a strong attack but it can only hit one enemy at a time, while Blizzara freezes multiple enemies in blocks of ice but has a short attack range. And then Blizzaga is strong and effective, but takes time to cast.

Furthermore, the weapon of each member can be customized using the Panel system. Like Luxord’s cards can become wide range type or a magic type, and Xaldin’s lances can become a strong aerial fighting type or a magic reinforcing type.

Thanks to FF7AC Reunion for the scans below!
