Nomura Interview From Famitsu: Talks KH3D & KHIII

That’s right folks! It’s been a long while since we had some news about Kingdom Hearts, in fact the newest issue of Famitsu magazine has an interview with series director Tetsuya Nomura and he talks about the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3D and a tiny bit of Kingdom Hearts III!

Unforgettable, Epic Battles…it’s all Worth it!

One of the most strongly praised aspects about Kingdom Hearts is its battle system. Although some depth is lost due to the ease of the ‘X’ button (resulting in the tendency to button-mash), if you’re playing on the higher difficulty levels, you’ll really appreciate the diverse attack styles and abilities, all delivered in a quick-based, breathless manner. Boss battles represent the epitome of this frantic fight for your life–the most dreaded feeling is to watch your HP bar dive down as you’re juggled mid-air in an enemy assault, only to rise up from the ashes like a phoenix when you’ve cast Curaga.

Open your mind and delight your senses by revisiting these epic battles in the following Top 10, presented by this week’s guest, Inaheart.
