Tetsuya Nomura’s Comment
――Did you do the main design?
Nomura: Yes. I was often being asked, “Will you design it for girls?”, but inevitably I designed it myself. The special characteristics of Kingdom Hearts titles were top priority, though of course staying conscious of the female fans, details like the main DSi body were made chic so that boys and adults wouldn’t feel out of place with it. I think since the rare monogram designs of the game are seen as fashionable, not only girls but guys will also want it.
