Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory will undoubtedly be a singular addition to the lengthy operating Kingdom Hearts sequence.
It’s a rhythm sport that looks to inform the tale of all the Kingdom Hearts sequence (encompassing 18 years of video games throughout a large number of consoles and gadgets) thru its a lot heralded musical rating.
While avid gamers will be capable to take at the roles of Sora, Donald, and Goofy yet again, it sort of feels as even though they’ll now not be the primary characters of this sport. Nor will Roxas, Terra, Ventus, or Aqua, all of whom starred in facet video games within the sequence ahead of.
Instead, Melody of Memory turns out as even though it’ll focal point on Kairi, Sora’s longtime pal and love passion became keyblade warrior.
While trailers and promotional fabrics have made it obtrusive that Kairi is the focus of this musical journey, we haven’t won many main points referring to how this is going to return about, or what her exact position within the identify can be.
Series director Tetsuya Nomura, who has helmed the franchise because it first gave the impression in 2002 at the PlayStation 2, talked just a little about Kairi’s position on this new sport and the way she can be riding the tale alongside.
Nomura mentioned in a contemporary interview that Kairi will function a storyteller for the sport, narrating the occasions of the quite a lot of Kingdom Hearts Disney-inspired worlds that the participant will consult with.
What’s fascinating is that it sounds as if Kairi used to be now not Nomura’s first option to function the storyteller. Originally, he used to be going to have Chirithy from Kingdom Hearts Union X and Kingdom Hearts three inform the tale. However, he modified his thoughts when he discovered that Kairi would are compatible that position higher.
Various adjustments needed to be made with a view to atone for this transformation. As a consequence, the tale for Melody of Memory needed to be revised, together with the quite a lot of Kairi-focused cutscenes we were given temporary peeks at in trailers.
He additionally famous that Melody of Memory isn’t going to have a secret unlockable film like different titles within the sequence. Typically, secret motion pictures are some way of giving a imprecise peek at what’s to return. So what we see in Melody of Memory is what we’re going to get, with out a secrets and techniques lurking across the nook.
If that is the rest like each and every different Kingdom Hearts sport, it’s most likely that Melody of Memory can be necessary to the tale heading into Kingdom Hearts 4 (every time that’s popping out).
Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory releases on November 13 at the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
