Following the release of the Japanese version of the new Kingdom Hearts III trailer just a few minutes ago, Square Enix followed up with the English version of the trailer, and the English song "Don't Think Twice."
Wow....sounds very beautiful....great to hear Utada again. A different feel to it than the last 2 themes. Also Riku!!!...looks like Noctis lol.
Heard her new album and yeah this song feel much different then the previous khs. Riku looks shorter and darker hair or its just me. Also to note amazing how japanese artist can sing japanese and english. Wonder if Americans cam do the same.
I mean, she grew up in America, right? Makes sense that she'd have a great English cover for her own song.
"Also to note amazing how japanese artist can sing japanese and english" That's where Final Fantasy got lazy in my opinion....everytime they did an English song they either got a brand new one or a cover of an old song
@Snookies12 yeah I believe she was born in the states and grew up there for a bit. Probably had a lot of exposure to both languages as she was growing up.
Utada released an entire album in English back in 2009 I believe. Her English was so fluent that if you didn't know it was her you would've thought she was just another singer on the radio.
Utada is american lol who happen to be japanese decent so no shocker if she can speak English and Japanese.
Didn't know she was American, know wonder she sing both so good. Thanks for the knowledge.

Lol relax. I can't wait for this game to come out but everybody's entitled to their own opinion I think people need to start understanding that as opposed to getting offended because someone thinks differently. I like this game and that's a day one for me, but I'm 100% okay with somebody thinking differently. That's ok.
The song that will inspire a new breed of AMVs has arisen
Really hoping we'll get the option to play this game with the Japanese voices (and music), and English subs.
I'm willing to bet we will. Considering most Square Enix games as of late have had free JP audio for download. I for one will play the game in English and then play it again in Japanese. I grew up listening/playing KH in English and I don't plan on changing that now. That being said, this song sounds incredible in Japanese.
The Voice actors are pretty damn good for KH, so I'm quite content with playing in English.
That is probably incorrect. It appears to be speculation from a single Japanese twitter user who pretty much thought "they didn't announce it here, it must be at E3." He's the only one who mentions E3, and he doesn't appear to have been in attendance at the event from his timeline. I asked a couple of people that were, and they could not confirm it (they don't remember any release date talk at all), and the Japanese press does not make a single mention of E3. Everyone else who talks about it on the internet, all cite this tweet. If they actually mentioned E3, you can be sure it'd be all over the Japanese press, and it's very uncharacteristic for E3 to be mentioned at this kind of E3 in Japan, so I'd take that with a *massive* grain of salt until SE confirms or denies.
If they're planning on getting it out this year, then well the latest they can announce it would be at Gamescon... which was where the release date for FF15 came from in 2016
Utada Hikaru is the voice of Kingdom Hearts.. what a legend
Wow I was already hyped for this game but now that Utada Hikaru is back for another song I’m looking even more forward to it.
Never played the franchise but this looks awesome
You're missing out on one of the best action RPG games of all time. You really should give them a try now that the whole collection is on PS4
I'm not even joking when I say that if you play KH3 without having played the others, you'll have literally no idea what's happening on screen. The gameplay will be fun as hell though so I guess if you're in it for that only then go right ahead. But I can assure you that you would be missing out on the majority of the appeal to the KH franchise. The characters and story are what really matters and the connection Utada Hikaru has built up with KH fans is off the charts. I'm not just saying this as a snobby KH fan either, I assure you that you NEED to have played the others. It's not like Final Fantasy or most other franchises. The game deals heavily with complicated plots and tries really hard to be deep. Wether it fails or succeeds with that is purely opinion based.
Couldn't have said it better.
Incoming remix of an already infectious song. Utada knows how to write and produce, saw her twice in concert, impeccable vocalist. She's Japanese music royalty. I'd highly recommend listening to her whole body of work. Aside from that, great to see new worlds and footage of the game.
tbh kingdom hearts kinda lost my interest through all the convoluted story lines and plot twists they added
Nice to see some new footage along with the other trailer but I kinda miss the old Riku..
I like the new Riku but then again the fact that he looks like a Noctis clone leaves me a bit salty. Nomura couldn't be bothered to come up with a brand new style for one of his most imjportant characters? Seems kinda shitty to me.
Is the director of KH3 also directing FF7 remake?
That is correct
Yes, because Final Fantasy 7 is a remake they were creating the game for years before they decided to name him as director. When a production team is doing a remake because they already have reference material it's created a bit differently. https://www.gamespot.com/ar... http://www.playstationlifes...
Not a huge fan of the song I prefer sanctuary and simple and clean but damn am I not psyched to play this game. I've been waiting too damn long
Odd....odd, odd game.
So why isn't this a ps4 exclusive?
Probably because SE expected both the PS4 and Xbone to be neck and neck this gen like the last when they decided to go multiplat. FFXV was the same. When they saw the PS4 dominated, they decided to go PS4 exclusive for the I.5, II.5 and II.8 remasters. I think KH3 will be PS4 exclusive in Japan only
Mickey constantly smiling a little freaky to anyone else? Haha
Sony should open their E3 briefing with live gameplay of this and after the gameplay finishes they flash the release date and give a KH3 themed PS4 Pro bundle as a pre-order option..
its funny how literally any japanese version of the KH games are waaaay better than the english ones. SImple and Clean doesnt count since its da bomb. also, im pretty sure this version is the ending theme, we probably get a remixed version for the opening
Dont like the song shes trying to sound like an african american R&B singer jeez i wish they would bring back the older songs
I am so happy Utada Hikaru is Kingdom Heart !! I am so happy that Squarenix aknowledege that fact Now we need the confirmation of Yoko Shimomura and the game is complete for me.
Glad they got her but I would of love Aimer or the woman who sing Aliez or Lisa to do the op or ed. Or better yet let Hiroyuki sawano do the ost he best music composer on the planet.
Can’t wait to pre-order it as soon as it becomes available on Xbox.
Damn it mess up how you get 3 down vote for saying that smh.
That’s because their trolls.
i'm not gonna lie glad it's coming out. Love 1 and 2 but kingdom heart 3 is about 6 years too late and the buzz is no were as high as it was when 2 came out. I feel kingdom hearts missed the boat with all those psp and ds games.... Js. Go ahead and down vote you know it's true.
