Fantastic news, I cant wait to hear her composition for Kingdom Hearts III

-Foxtrot1041d ago

I can't wait for the new theme song by Hikaru Utada...although the intro which usualy recaps everything is going to be VERY long after all the silly handheld/spin off games

I hope in KH HD remix 2.5 they include Dream Drop Distance since they said you need to play it to understand KH3 story.

I'm still ticked off that apparently at the end of DD <spoiler> Sora dosen't become a Keyblade Master, he fails and Rikku becomes one instead. I mean I know Sora failed his test and needed saving but COME ON. He's saved both worlds TWICE and he wasn't even supposed to weild the Keyblade the guy who was supposed to, Rikku lost his heart to the darkness and became evil so I don't really see how they can't let Sora pass but instead make someone who has just joined the good side recently pass after everything he did

Is it confirmed that Hikaru is going to do the next game's theme? I thought she said she didn't want to do them anymore because of her English translations losing "feeling" or something like that.

-Foxtrot1041d ago

Well she better...come on it's one more game in this current trilogy. When they start a new trilogy in the far far future then they can replace her but she may aswell. It's not like they come out every 2-4 years, they come out once in a blue moon.

Utada Hikaru has been a like a 4 year hiatus. She's only come out to do the ending credit songs for the Evangelion Rebuild movies. She'll probably jump at the opportunity to do the next Kingdom Hearts Theme. If they didn't it be as crazy as replacing David Hayter and casting someone else as Snake! Oh wait... uh oh.

Actually, she said she wont because Square Enix didnt want to pay her enough. But that was years ago. She has to do 4 versions of one song. The Japanese version, the English version (which has completely different lyrics), And both songs have to have a slow version.

Either way she I heard she went on hiatus for a while after her last album hit the top 20 in America (unprecedented for an Asian artist). Not sure if she returned.

i doubt Hikki will return to KH since her management strongly says that Disney does not pay enough for her work.

@Sharingan_no_Kakashi:
you're wrong. Charice has a higher peaked in the US. She is the first Asian solo singer in history to land in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 albums chart (which she peaked at no. 8)
while Utada's second album "This Is the One" peaked at no. 69
