Kingdom Hearts III Keyblade Will Be A Transforming Machine
Fans of the Kingdom Hearts franchise are plenty familiar with the Keyblade.
It's Sora's weapon and has been since the original title. However, it has gone through several transformations - literally - over the years, and the latest series entry will see an even more advanced Keyblade.
Series creator Tetsuya Nomura spoke to Famitsu (as translated by Siliconera) about Kingdom Hearts III, the anticipated new installment set for next-gen consoles. He addressed certain new gameplay features, such as "Attraction Flow," which lets you select moves based on the places you visit and the enemies you fight. He also spoke about Keyblade transformations:
"In the trailer, we saw it transform into the shape of a gun, but there are also some other unbelievable transformations. The other day, when we were checking it out, the staff member said ‘it turns into ____’ and I impulsively replied with, ‘Are you serious?’"
Nomura added that the Keyblade will "likely be used as some sort of gimmick" and that it has "infinite possibilities." Apparently, Nomura is using the word "gimmick" in its post positive sense in that statement. As for KHIII, we have nothing but the highest expectations and if the Keyblade is a transforming machine in addition to a weapon, then so be it. Nothin' wrong with a little added creativity.
