Hey you guys, Roxy here (totally still alive!) As of 9:42 AM PST, it was revealed that character designs for an upcoming Kingdom Hearts game meant for the PC would be done by Monster Octopus. If you want an idea of just how such a thing would even look think back to Theatrhythm and the KH Mobile games and you’ll have just a bit of an idea. In terms of action the game appears to be simple in its design and overall execution: a character can be seen leaping, moving about and striking those familiar little treasure chests we all love with a keyblade. This character can also be seen attacking in a manner fans may be slightly familiar with and according to Zephyr of Kingdom Hearts Insider things are only going to get more interesting both for the PC game and the upcoming HD release:
Should we expect that fans are brought into the Keyblade War!? In this work, all players, can become owners of the Keyblade. Earlier in “BEFORE CRISIS: FINAL FANTASY VII”, Square Enix provided us with a game where everyone can become Turks; I didn’t expect this.
By the way, it seems to be firmly confirmed that Disney characters will appear. A video showed “Alice in Wonderland” had appeared on the screen. What other Disney characters will appear? To be honest, I was really anxious. The character designer is Monster Octopus, who made the familiar avatars from “KINGDOM HEARTS Mobile” and “THEATRHYTHM: FINAL FANTASY”.
Furthermore there is one more new work, for the Playstation 3, “KINGDOM HEARTS -HD I.5 ReMIX-”. There will be HD versions of “KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX” and “KINGDOM HEARTS Re:Chain of Memories”, and there will be HD versions of cuscenes summarizing “KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days” to enjoy.
Also in the HD version of “KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX”, it will include Japanese voice acting. Please enjoy the additional cutscene of Cloud and Sephiroth that will also have Japanese voice acting. The KINGDOM HEARTS series is strong because of its story, that many people felt in the middle of the series. The release date will be in the year 2013. The title in the series means that you will be able to enjoy the storyline along the timeline, please look forward to it by all means.
I can’t lie to you all, throw in some disney characters and add a bit of Square and I still feel that nostalgic twinge of excitement that first coursed through my body ten years ago. I would be thrilled if they decided to add characters we weren’t expecting, like Kida and Milo from Atlantis, or perhaps Oliver and Dodger from Oliver and Company–the possibilities are limitless really! What Disney characters would you like to see? What do you think of the designs that will be used? I for one am still trying to get used to the idea of a Kingdom Hearts game for the PC, I mean really is there a medium they HAVEN’T used yet at this point? But I want to hear your opinions guys, so blow that comment section up and tell us all your thoughts!
