    I do have to admit, this is exciting info. Especially the confirmation the RoD moves at a different time than the RoL and the room of awakening info.
    I think just because a plot line is long and is expanded doesn't mean it is bad or dead. I like long intertwining plots. They are entertaining and I like to connect the pieces when im done playing, reading, or watching the media.

    So the Mystery Game's main character is not Sora and this character is also going to get his own series?
    Or is the Mystery Game and Mystery Series unrelated?
    Does the Mystery Series have anything to do with KH?
    If not, why mention it?
    :23:

    Anyone else confused about this?

    Yeah, this is true. A game between the timelines of BbS and KH1 would be really interesting, since we don't really know what happens and it would explain a lot of things regarding SRK, VAT and Xehanort.

    See, I really don't think a GAME should be made for it. There wouldn't be...well, any gameplay. Nothing to fight, and no one to fight AS.

    I think this is a perfect time for a KH movie.

    Like, not an "Advent Children" thing, but, like...release a disc basically made up of a bunch of cutscenes. Why not? We'd all buy it, haha.

    Yeah I guess.
    Im just afraid I'll outgrow/tire of the series before it finishes. I already cant play BBS due to lack of a PSP. And even if I borrow one itll be the same problem every new game.


    But anyway, if this game shows the takeover of Radiant Garden, it will be EPIC. But is there really enough to fill an entire game with whats remaining between 1 and BBS?

    Someone seriously needs to do this.

    I'm praying this includes expanding Snow White's storyline. The way they skipped out on the good parts was shameless.

    Terra comes and the Queen tries to get him to steal Snow White's heart. Between Terra and Ven, she transforms into the Hag, though we never actually see this (meaning that they just assume you know what happens...). Ven comes and helps Snow White through the forest while the Hag comes to visit her. Between Ven and Aqua, the Hag poisons Snow White. But when Aqua arrives, we only get to hear the Dwarves talk of how they chased her off and she died (seriously, biggest waste).

    It's like they cut off the best parts of the story.

    Hmm, this is really true actually... there weren't any Heartless, Nobodies, or Unversed around at this time, if I recall correctly. Well, there were Heartless, but not as much as in the post-BbS KH games because AtW and AX didn't mess with the hearts and worlds.

    And who would we control? Sora and Riku are kids at this point and live boring lives on DI, and Xehanort's in Radiant Garden the whole time, and I don't think that they would make a whole game in one world. Possibly Mickey, but what would the plot for that be?

    I guess these events can be explained in cutscenes. Or a movie, like TheBucket said.

    here's no secret movie in coded, but if you make Riku appear in the Destiny Islands room you can see a hidden movie.
    This made me LOL. xD I know its translated and stuff, but apparently Nomura thinks that there's a different between the words 'secret' and 'hidden'. xD

    Suddenly you guys are making me hope for an adventure style game with Kairi. Just because it's KH it doesn't have to have fighting in it!

    Maybe even a point-and-click adventure!

    God I'm old.

    Please do not ever wish for either of those things.

    Like, I'm not a Kairi-hater, I know she important to the story, but just...no. Not a game for her. No. No. No. And a point-and-click KH game? No thanks.

    It will never happen of course, but a girl can dream.

    Okay, I picked up this week's Famitsu, so here's the full text of the second half of the interview. It makes some of the excerpts a little clearer. (I left off the stuff about Versus XIII at the end because it's unrelated and I really need to get back to work.) Lissar will have the rest up soon!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    AND THE BONDS AND THOUGHTS ARE CONNECTED TO SORA

    The mysteries of the Secret Event

    -- The way Castle Oblivion came to be, and the whole story about the Room of Awakening have been made clear. So when Sora and his friends visited during 'Chain of Memories', Ven was already sleeping in the Room of Awakening, right?

    Nomura: That's right.

    -- And some members of Organisation XIII were searching for it.

    Nomura: Yeah. But only Aqua can solve the mysteries of that castle.

    -- So without Aqua...

    Nomura: Nobody will be able to reach Ven.

    -- So then, why is Xemnas of Organisation XIII searching for Ven?

    Nomura: Well, there's still some time between the ending of 'Birth by Sleep' and 'KHI', so...

    -- So you're saying you can't tell us yet (laughs). Braig had a big role in the game, and he was a little ominous...?

    Nomura: In the final scene where Braig appears, his eyes have changed to gold.

    -- Did something happen between him and Master Xehanort?

    Nomura: I think there was a line where Master Xehanort says that he has "scattered some seeds", and that's also referring to Braig.

    -- "Also" referring to Braig!? You're holding something back there... And then there was the scene where Master Xehanort says to Terra, "It seems there is another heart already residing in your own. Well well, Eraqus."

    Nomura: We've put in all kinds of foreshadowing (laughs).

    -- You can't tell us you're not going to make the story between 'Birth by Sleep' and 'KHI' in some form!

    Nomura: I think you can more or less predict what happens in between 'Birth by Sleep' and 'KHI' now. However, this time you could probably imagine what would happen to Terra in the end, but I think when you personally experience it in the game, it can still make you feel something. Even when you know about something, I think there's significance in depicting it, so that may also be made clear at some point.

    Ansem the Wise and Aqua

    -- At one point in 'KHII', Ansem the Wise escapes from the world of darkness. This time he has once again descended into the world of darkness. At what point in time does this happen?

    Nomura: After 'KHII'. When he stopped the Organisation's plans in 'KHII', he was caught up in an explosion and blown into the world of darkness. The line where he says, "I first met him one year ago," is referring to before 'he' went to sleep - that is, it's referring to the time of 'Chain of Memories'. It doesn't mean this is one year after 'KHII'.

    -- At that point, it seems like Aqua has been lost for a long time.

    Nomura: Yes. From when she comes to the world of darkness to when she meets Ansem the Wise, over 10 years have passed in the outside world. The flow of time is different in the world of darkness and the outside world, so it doesn't feel like 10 years have passed. But there's no mistaking that she's been in the world of darkness for quite a long time.

    -- During Aqua's conversation with Ansem the Wise, it's said that some data has been hidden in Sora?

    Nomura: The truth is, that expression was an intentional link to 'coded'. I think people who have played the last chapter of 'coded' will know this, but that isn't foreshadowing for 'coded', it's foreshadowing for what will happen afterwards.

    -- I see. In "Blank Points", you've used the theme music that played in the opening, 'Hikari', again.

    Nomura: In 'Birth by Sleep', Blank Points is where 'Hikari' is used for the second time; this is the game's true ending. The timing of the credits was something I personally fussed over, and with Aqua's line right beforehand, I had Toyoguchi (Megumi) do about 50 takes. I wanted her to say it with a strong feeling of hope.

    What's after coded?

    -- The last chapter of 'coded' is also deeply interesting. I couldn't believe that character appeared...

    Nomura: We went back and forth over that a lot. Originally a different character appeared, but in the end we went with the current form. We also put in the battle with that character at the last minute, so development was very hectic.

    -- By the way, is there something like a secret report in 'coded'?

    Nomura: There isn't. But when Riku appears in the Destiny Islands room, there's a hidden movie you can watch. You need to destroy the blocks to make Riku appear, so please search for him.

    -- The end of 'coded' is linked to the end of 'Birth by Sleep', and makes us think we want to see what Sora's up to soon.

    Nomura: If that's how you feel, then I'm grateful. The ending of 'coded' was based on the contents of the the King's letter, as well as that ending, so we made it with that in mind.

    -- And so now we're interested in the next game in the series.

    Nomura: First we have to do the foreign version of 'Birth by Sleep' (laughs). We've more or less decided on the details. We're thinking of putting in a Critical Mode for battles. Also, we'll make some of the bosses that felt weak stronger. Mega Flare was too powerful, so we plan to adjust that. As for events, the direction of some scenes was changed for various reasons so we'll put them back into the form that was originally planned, we'll adjust the events to make the story a little easier to understand, and add in some extra parts.

    -- So there'll be several changes. Does this mean we can expect a 'Final Mix'...?

    Nomura: That will depend on how much it differs from the Japanese version. But we do basically want to bring out one game in the 'Kingdom Hearts' series every year; we don't intend you to go for years without a single piece of news.

    -- In about two years we'll hit the 10 year anniversary. So how about KH3?

    Nomura: No no, that's still a secret (laughs). The title with a connection to the mystery series that I mentioned before will come out first.

    -- So will the series be complete with the third part? Are you looking at the whole picture?

    Nomura: 'Kingdom Hearts' is Sora's story, but the series we're working on at the moment is the story of one other person. That is to say, it's a series where that person is the focus.

    -- The series you're currently working on!?

    Nomura: I can't say any more than that (laughs).

    Wow, that was an awesome read. Thanks for the translations! :D

    Somehow I get the feeling that Nomura is intentionally trying to make the interviewer wet himself...
