Since then, several interviews have been had, media has been shared – but that always leaves room for more. Speaking with Famitsu, Director Tetsuya Nomura, Total Visual Director Takeshi Nozue and newly revealed co-director Hajima Tabata (of FF Type-0 and Crisis Core fame) shared some new insight on this fifteenth coming and its leap into the next generation.
KINGDOM HEARTS III In 7/4 Famitsu Weekly! - News - Kingdom Hearts Insider
Somebody finally realized in Square Enix that Nomura can't get anything done by himself, and seems to of had co-directors for both titles placed upon him for both projects. I like the moves and reshaping for both titles, and it shows that the company is finally shifting it's focus back to it's bread and butter of home consoles.Update: Tai Yasue, co-director of KH3D and Re:Chain of Memories, will serve as co-director for KH3. Rie Nishi, producer for KINGDOM HEARTS 1.5 ReMIX, is also coming on as producer for KH3.
As for Nomura - about fucking time. Dude was given way too much power by Yoichi Wada, and I am glad to see it taken back. The guy is brilliant, but he lacks the desire and ability to get projects done in a non-wasteful manner. Good for you Square Enix, and I hope the continued babysitting of Nomura continues.
