Tetsuya Nomura, video game designer and director on Square Enix, just recently revealed the newest updates concerning the Kingdom Hearts 3 development.
The Square Enix action role-playing video game, expected to be released for PS4 and XBox One in 2016, has been in development for roughly 5 years. Officially announced at E3 2013, the game seems to be moving along at a good pace.
Now Tetsuya Nomura has revealed that the game’s core development is coming to a finish, stating that basic systems and mechanics are nearly completed. However, according to Nomura, the game still has many unfinished and yet to be planned elements.
When asked about KH3’s state of development, here’s what Tetsuya Nomura said to the Official Playstation Magazine UK:
For the most part we’ve established the ground foundations, like the basic systems and mechanics of what’s going to go in the game. Development of that is pretty much close to complete. But of course, since this is an HD title, it’s now building the resources, and development of the ‘mass’ elements of it, like mass production of the areas and the actual things that are going into the game.
“Other elements, including the mini-games and other various smaller items; their progress is very varied…some of them are polished and very close to final state, but at the same time some elements are still in the planning phase and I haven’t laid out the groundwork yet. But the basic structure of what’s going to go in the game is set, it’s now a matter of mass production of the different elements.
