Here's the best version of the trailer from the Sony E3 conference.


Those ship battles look spectacular. WOW. Definitely going to get the PS4 Pro LE when it's available for pre-order.

It makes sense. The 2018 Holiday is far too competitive. Rumor has it Smash is to release this holiday season. I don't think anyone wants to go up against Smash.
That doesn't make much sense. Smash is going to be a Nintendo exclusive, while KHIII is going to be on the PS4 and XBox One. I can understand your stance if the games were releasing on the same platform.

Kingdom Hearts III will have DLC in lieu of a Final Mix version. No Season pass is planned, however. As I suspected. @Nova and @Storm should be slightly happy about this news.
There's another point of interest in that interview; the size of KH3, from what he's saying, the fact that Nomura has concerns of KH3's size being able to fit onto a disc is something that tells me the scale of KH3 may be massive in some way, but there's no way to truly tell, but from this, I can only speculate that we may be able to have a big story at launch for KH3, but like I said, it's only speculation, I'm just commenting on something I found interesting.

Thank God, I hate Season Passes in video games. I understand that it makes money, but personally I think it's in poor taste. It's the same feeling it get with most retail "deals" as well. "Pay this money and you save on stuff you would buy anyway". This mentality gets you to ignore quality under the guise that you save money overall.

誓い・OATH


運命なんて知らない

I don't know much about destiny

けどこの際 存在を認めざるを得ない

But this time I can't help but admit its existence.

本当にこんな私でもいいの? ねえ いいの?

Are you sure I'm fine being this way? I mean, are you sure?

あんまり期待させないでほしいよ

I wish you didn't put so much expectation on me



今日という日は嘘偽りのない

In the day of today there will be no falsehood

永遠の誓い日和だよ

This is an oath for the eternity

綺麗な花も証人もいらない

I don't need pretty flowers or any witnesses

同じ色の指輪をしよう

Let's just wear rings with the same color



悔しくて仕方がない

I can't help but feel frustrated

ダサいくらいしがみついたまま 眠りたい 毎日

I want to sleep everyday clinging to you in a way that is almost uncool



約束はもうしない

I won't make promises anymore

そんなの誰かを喜ばすためのもの

They are just to please people



今言うことは受け売りなんかじゃない

What I'm gonna say now isn't some second-hand opinion

約束でもない 誓いだよ

It's not a promise either, it's an oath

嘘つきだった僕には戻れない

I can't go back to being the "me" who was a liar

朝日色の指輪にしよう

Let's wear rings with the color of the sunrise



胸の高鳴りを重ねて踊ろうよ

Let's pump our chests and dance

今を生きることを祝おうよ

Let's celebrate that we're living now



たまに堪えられなくなる涙に これと言って深い意味はない

There's no deep meaning to these tears that sometimes we can't avoid

ただ昔を突然思い出し(ああ泣きたい)

It's simply that we're suddenly remembering the old days ah, I wanna cry

開かれたドアから差し込む光

The light that comes through the opened door

これからもずっと側にいたい

Will surely stay by our side from now on

選択肢なんてもうとっくにない

There are no alternatives anymore



今日という日は過去前例のない

There are no precedents for the day of today

僕たちの誓い日和だよ

This is our oath

綺麗な花も証人もいらない

I don't need pretty flowers or any witnesses

同じ色の指輪をしよう

Let's just wear rings with the same color



Kiss me once, kiss me twice

Kiss me once, kiss me twice

一度じゃ足りない

Once is not enough

Kiss me once, kiss me twice

Kiss me once, kiss me twice

あなたを下さい

I just want you, please



Kiss me once, kiss me twice

Kiss me once, kiss me twice

Kiss me three times お願い

Kiss me three times please

Kiss me once, kiss me twice

Kiss me once, kiss me twice

あなたを下さい

I just want you, please



日の昇る音を肩並べて聞こうよ

Let's listen to the sound of the sun rising side by side

共に生きることを誓おうよ

Let's make an oath to live together

Pretty interesting stuff! I like the idea that the team of Einhänder are on charge of the Gummi Ship part.

Interview w/ Director Tetsuya Nomura
  • He thought of including Frozen from quite an early stage
  • It follows the chronology of the movie, with the plot of Sora & friends progressing behind the scenes of the story of Anna and Elsa
  • In the Frozen world there's an ice skate style Keyblade transformation
  • Elsa & the others don't fight, but Marshmallow lends a hand
  • They wanted to put even more into the graphics of the PotC world
  • He's wanted to do a pirate form Sora for a long time now
  • It started because he wanted to include one live action Disney work
  • Plotwise it takes main beats from the 3rd movie, but they've written the scenario so you'll understand how it's following on from the 2nd movie
  • There's elements on land, sea and air, and quite a lot of gameplay features. Keyblade can transform into a spear & flag
  • He thinks he will be able to show footage of the Big Hero Six world next time
  • Wreck-it Ralph was revealed as one of the Link Commands the other day, and Ratatouille is a mini game
  • The reason he picked Hercules & Toy Story for the press etc. demo was because those are closest in quality to the commercial version
  • He will keep working on things he got feedback on from the demos eg. camera rotation, right to the end
  • Everything for this game has to be created right from scratch which has been pretty tough
  • The difficulty level in the demo ver. was a little easier than Standard Mode but a bit harder than Beginner Mode
  • Character levelling up etc. will follow the same format as KH/KHII
  • The Gummi Ship is being developed with the director and staff of Einhänder, Nomura loved that game so he is really looking forward to it being finished
  • There's a 'battle specialization mode' and 'free movement mode', they're calling it an open world Gummi Ship
  • There will be a follow up report on Gummi Ship customization
  • The order in which you visit worlds is mostly fixed
  • In this game there are no skippable worlds, since most people visit all of them
  • At this point there aren't any online components, but he wants to add them
  • The kind of demo they released before is different from a proper playable demo, which they do not have the time to make
  • He wants to release more info about the New Organization XIII a little at a time as the release date comes closer
  • Aqua is from after a certain incident
  • He thinks if you play both Union Cross and KH3 you will understand the deal with Marluxia
  • One of the main themes of KH3 is "a conclusion for everybody," which means the number of characters appearing is huge
  • Hikaru Utada created the new song for them at a very early stage
  • After sending her an explanation of the series and of the content, they left the song up to her
  • They started work on the bundle edition PS4Pro quite early, he had them remake it many times until they got his ideal color
  • They are especially manufactured with a leathery finish
  • The controller(s?) has a glossy finish with a design on the touchpad, this is a never-before-seen type
  • He wants you to play the previous titles and UX until release date
  • They're realizing that there's a chance they will run out of disc space, so he'd like you to set up your net connection and wait for the currently-being-planned online components
  • Regarding FF7 Remake: he knows some misinformation caused people to worry, but development is actually coming along very well
  • They're keeping info on the downlow because they are prioritizing the release of KH3 and other titles from the company
  • They're focusing on the next time they can release info, so please wait a little longer
