Tetsuya Nomura gave Dengeki PlayStation an update on everything Kingdom Hearts. Nomura said development on Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance has become demanding and the team is working on a quick pace.
According to Nomura, fans will be amazed when the game is finished. Just like the teaser trailer, Sora and Riku will be able to bounce from wall to wall, a feat Nomura says will make this Kingdom Hearts the flashiest game in the series. Nomura teased the game will have new systems, but this portion of the interview was blacked out.
Release information has not been announced, but Nomura hopes to release the Nintendo 3DS game early next year. Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance will be playable at Tokyo Game Show.
Nomura also commented that the tenth anniversary of Kingdom Hearts is coming soon. Nomura feels that it’s difficult for new users to enter the series at this point. He’s thinking about how to tackle this problem and make the series more accessible. Nomura said to Dengeki he’s working on a Kingdom Hearts series HD technology test, but didn’t offer any more details.
