Director Nomura Talks Similarities Between Final Fantasy XV And Kingdom Hearts

Siliconera: "We recently got a look at a couple internal interviews conducted by Square Enix, where director Tetsuya Nomura revealed that Final Fantasy XV will be considered for hardware that uses DirectX 11 and how they had to recreate graphics after losing the data for the original Kingdom Hearts." (Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, PS4, Tetsuya Nomura, Xbox One)

Noctis in KH III would be cool.

I'd say it's a certainty, especially since KH III is likely to come out after XV.

It will take the same amount of years for KH3 to come just like it took FF VS XIII.

one of the advantages of next gen consoles is that they are supposed to be easier to develop for. And by easier I mean faster development.

Cerny said that what took 6 months to make on PS3 now it takes only 1 to 2 months at most.

More strategy can be use for faster development.

adding MMORPG component added to KH3, It'll will attract many Investor to the project.
Money is still a Major factor in game development.

More Money to hire More People,
Less Development Time, Earlier Release.

Why can't we have Final Fantasy AND Kingdom Hearts? Why do we need TWO Kingdom Hearts series'?
xXxSeTTriPxXx  +   878d ago
Good question.might be that the kh formula is the easiest way to mainstream ff since all other attempt failed.

Because Action-RPG is the future.

Why is that? Do you like playing the same gameplay over and over again? Is there no room for other genres? I don't understand this kind of thinking.

What if I said turn-based was the future, so action-RPGs shouldn't exist? It wouldn't make sense. It doesn't make sense the way you're saying it, either.

What are you talking about? Theirs only one KH series and one FF series! The new FF looks awesome, stop whining.
xXxSeTTriPxXx  +   878d ago
He' saying that ffxv is using the exact formula as kh (battle system, party etc) so it kinda is a kh game in a ff skin, so stop b#$ching about things you haven't the comprehension to understand.
FinalFantasyFan  +   870d ago

FF15 won't the exact kh formula, so maybe YOU "stop b#$ching about things you haven't the comprehension to understand."
FinalFantasyFan  +   870d ago
How about KH becomes FF, and FF becomes KH. Would that please you? If not, then stop whining.

This is nice and all but honestly, i just want release info.
I'm waiting to see if they offer some type of limited ed ps4 with this.
thehitman  +   878d ago
Lol they wont do that so you shouldnt hold your breath. Game will probably release summer/fall 2014.

This game reminds me of Shadow of the Colossus and DMC for some reason.

I can't wait.

I like what I see of the game, but don't consider it a "Final Fantasy". Especially when Nomura is making direct sequels.

Direct. F***ing. Sequels.

Really wish someone would slap some sense into Square.
FinalFantasyFan  +   870d ago
And what do u "consider" to be "Final Fantasy"? This is a Final Fantasy game through and through. Just because u personally dislike action rpgs doesn't mean it isn't.
Godmars290  +   870d ago
Being an enclosed story. A closed loop. Being able to explore the entirety of a world as you go about saving that world. And that hasn't happened since FF9.

“The red-haired character is voiced by Keiji Fujiwara, so we decided to give him red hair. Mr. Fujiwara voiced the roles of Reno from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and Axel from the Kingdom Hearts series, so we decided to go with red hair to keep the same flow.”

Does this mean Quinton Flynn will voice the same character for the English version.

In KH2 we had FF10 characters, and FF12 was released just months after KH2's release. I wonder which FF characters we'll see in KH3? I imagine Lightning will be making an appearance (awesome character despite a terrible game), but

I'm wondering if we'll see FF12 characters. Balthier or Ashe would be perfect - Balthier, the leading man and Ashe being the queen.

Similarities...hope that means reduced development time :D
