As for the interview itself, a couple of details have been leaked (a fully translated interview will be posted as soon as it's available), which can be read below:
  • There is a congratulatory message regarding the overlap of issue #600 and the announcement of KH2.8.
  • The king (presumably King Mickey) and the others were drawn beforehand for the sake of expediting the schedule, but now they're being recolored to create a sense of unity.
  • They've depicted this on the front cover several times.
  • The “Lost Master” is discussed in X[chi], but it will be used in KH3
  • The creation of Xehanort's keyblade will be discussed in X[chi] and will tie into KH3
  • Kingdom Hearts itself will also be discussed further, more than the series has so far
  • D23 (November 3rd) will feature a “theater” concept, so Nomura is hoping we're looking forward to the video!
2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
  • The part of KH3D that explains the 7 lights and 13 darknesses will be carried on through the end of KH3
  • Since “Keyblade Master” is a special title, what's necessary to become one will be taught
  • BBS 0.2 and KH1-2's stories will be linked together
  • Chirithy is the one speaking in X[chi]: Back Cover
Unchained X[chi]
  • Chirithy is the player's guide
  • The “Master of Masters” is the teacher of the six apprentices, and it will be revealed in X[chi]: Back Cover who the traitor is
Special thanks to @libregkd for the find.

We have our usual hosts @Misty, @libregkd, @Calxiyn, joined by staff guest @Plums and member guest @Scarred Nobody to discuss the ins and outs of the newly announced collection and our personal feelings on what the collection is and our thoughts on the series' future.

Our user-submitted questions this week @Kingdom Hearts530 asks us what our favorite colors are and @Nobodyslight has us weight in on the smartphone OS wars. This week for Table Topics, everyone talks about their bad habits they wish they could stop as well as discussing what our dream (and not so dreamy) job would be.
