    Default Famitsu Interview + List of Ultimania Content + BbS FM Preorders Available!

    Thanks to Heartstation & FF-Reunion

    Q. About when and how did the Re:Coded project begin?

    A. We were considering the fact that there were a lot of people that who wanted to try out Coded outside of the mobile phone version, so from about October of last year we started development together with H.a.n.d. on the DS version. (Kato)

    Q. Tell us the reason for including the new elements in the system areas.

    A. A greater volume was being updated to the growth system from the mobile phone version, so to keep up with the stronger Sora it was necessary to update the system areas. So in place of the “Debug Mode” which was a strong puzzle element in the mobile version, we opted for a random dungeon style system area instead. (Ito)

    A. The attributes like side-scroll action and 3D shooting stages that existed in the mobile version added a variety of ways to play so we made the best of them, so by using the system areas as the places of adventure we increased the play volume. (Kato)

    Q. Concerning the status matrix, do the status points finally have a maximum value? Also, what is the highest level you can achieve?

    A. When the status effects reach their maximum points, the colors of the numbers change and they can’t increase. There is a maximum number of level-up chips that can be obtained, however if they are used smartly, the maximum level you can reach is 99. (Ito)

    Q. The Avatar Kingdom feature of this title utilizes the DS Wifi feature that activates when players pass by one another. Even if players don’t pass by, do built-in avatars appear?

    A. Since the device can pick up various radio waves, it’s easy to encounter other avatars while out in the real world. There are various kinds of built-in avatars with messages included too, so please enjoy them. (Ito)

    Q. If you have any particular memories or episodes from during development of this title, please tell us about it.

    A. This time development was handled with H.a.n.d. Thanks to everyone working on it tackling the project positively, the finished product is really good. (Ito)

    A. For a moment we considered giving up the Scratch Card idea, but thanks to the Osaka staff’s efforts we were able to make it happen. (Kato)

    Q. Finally, any messages for the players of Re:Coded?

    A. You can change your avatar’s outfits using the touch pen, so you can get quite detailed. You can use the pen to add tiny parts like “Cid’s toothpick” and other things make sure to check it out. (Ito)

    A. Collecting trophies can earn you cheat panels which are useful, by all means make use of them! (Kato)

    The same reason the Final Mixes are?
    Because they are made for the Japanese audience.

    You don't see Japanese people wondering why North American GuideBooks are strictly English...

    KH3D, KHIII, Mystery Title, post-xehanort saga...
    there's a lot he could bring up.


    The added info to the OP makes me hopeful for the new BBS:FM cover. I love new Nomura art.

    Uhh yeah?
    Since the Ultimanias are only released in Japan it's not surprising they're in Japanese, is it?

    As far as I know the Ultimanias are the equivalent to our Strategy guides from Bradygames or piggyback in USA and Europe...only they cover way more stuff in terms of Nomura interviews and actual story background.
    Heck...that's one thing I would personally want for the 10th anniversary of KH...a compiled complete guide book or something near that which lays out the complete story of Kingdom Hearts in it's entirety so far from BBS over KH I over CoM/Days over KH II to Coded/3DS with tons of accompanying artwork, detailed character fiiles of all major characters and probably a fleshed out timeline when which event in every game happened in chronological order, not in game-order.

    You know I actually never realized that Japan didn't get a normal strategy guide, and then this one as a like a special edition, thats how I always viewed it. However, I wish our guides would go as in depth or have as nice a cover as the ultimania's, and by that I mean not the box art.

    I know Nomura could talk about a lot of things, but I dont' think he would reveal too much about any of the titles, which makes me wonder if they will just ask a question and move on to another topic. Usually, he goes into at least 1 game more then the rest, but this time I don't know how much he will talk about.

    He'll probably talk about Re:Coded the most since it -is- the Re:Coded Ultimania....
    Given how Re:Coded also hints to KH3D and KH3D is the next title, he's likely to drop some hints about that too.

    YES. I would love an end all, be all Guidebook for every Kingdom Hearts game ever released! It could be arranged based on Story (with the Full Blown Timeline at the end of the Story Section), then Character Files, Game Guides, Item Info (Complete with pictures for every item in the games. And they could create images for items that never had them (such as KH1 exclusive items, like the Pretty Stone)), Ability Info (Comprising of all Attacks, Magic, Commands, Passive Abilities (Like Treasure Magnet), and Special Moves (Like Reaction Commands, the Command Styles, and the Drive Forms)), Multiplayer Details (For the games that had them), and a Secrets section for the little, unnoticed things that have significance to the series or are there just for fun (Such as item Cameos that are in other series, or the infamous Bug Island Glitch in KH1). It would be huge (Likely bigger than the Pokemon Platinum guidebook), and have a fairly high price tag, but if such a book found its way to american shores...It would be worth every penny.

    But what would it be called...? I have a few name ideas...

    The Kingdom Hearts Ultimate Encyclopedia: The Final Resource on everything contained within the World of Kingdom Hearts.

    Lexicon of the Keyblade: The Door to every detail found within the Universe of Kingdom Hearts.

    Any other cool names?
