Hey everyone, once again, we have new official Kingdom Hearts news. As we all know, last year, Square-Enix had a 2007 Kingdom Hearts themed Calendar.

Well now, they have confirmed that the 2008 Calendar will also be Kingdom Hearts themed! There is no new information about if the artist will be Nomura, or Amano. Or even the sale date, as this was a recent decision made. But we'll keep you all updated!

There must have been an argument about this going around at some point somewhere, because yesterday, I received literally over 80 e-mails about this, which is a high amount for such a simple request. It seems there's been arguments that the Japanese lines and English lines for Xemnas are completely different, and have no resemblance while others are saying they're direct translations.

Well we're here to clarify it for those people, as well as for others. This took some time to get done as it resulted in playing both the english, and Japanese version, writing down their context, and then matching them up, but we're highly determined people.

The order will go like this (Japanese) = (English)

Guard! = Guard!
No stopping. = Kneel!
Will you come? = Come Closer.
It's a lie, isn't it? = So it wasn't a fallacy.

Xemnas Armored
Foolish... = Cursed Fools!
Face your death! = (Not used in the English version)

Xemnas Armored 2
Only hearts show power = Hearts are power.
Nothingness is also eternal. = Nothingness is Eternal!

Sora are you sure Riku believes in you? = Sora are you sure you can trust Riku?

Riku, are you easily envied, by Sora? = Riku, are you sure you're not Jealous of Sora.

Accept the Nothingness = Embrace...Nothing!
Why is nothingness denied... = Why do you despise the void.

Final Xemnas
Anger...Hatred...are the highest. = Anger and Hate are supreme.
Let's go together. = You shall go together.
Capture! = Bind!
Begone! = Begone!
Lightning! = (Not used in English Version)
Carry! = Pierce!
Shoot! = Fire!
Groan! = (Not used in English Version)
Hey, disappear... = Why don't you vanish?
You shall give me a heart? = Can you spare, a heart?
You shall not become light! = There's no such thing as light. = Cursed....Keyblade...

Hopefully this will clear that, and the conclusion of this is.

Even though some are changed, they give off the same feel, and there are even some lines that weren't translated at all to English!

Once again, thank you all for visiting us, as we'll always provide you with KH Content.
Hey everyone, I know I'm pretty late for the first interview, as I was trying to find a source, but I managed to find the origins of it thanks to! Also there's another recent Nomura interview, that was posted in the 2ch boards, I'm not sure if it's from the Ultimania or Famitsu. However it talks about things Nomura wishes he could improve on the game. Which hints what may be possible in the next Kingdom Hearts Franchise!

First thing first however, here's an interview that was translated by KHN's WingsofaButterfly202's friend, and put up by Tomogirl.

Who will be the main character, and on what platform? About the next game that we've all been wondering about.

Interviewer: About the new KH title that will be announced after summer this year (2007), will that be a direct sequel?

Nomura: Hmm...I'm not sure how much I can say (laughs). I'll start of by saying that it's not Kingdom Hearts 3.

Interviewer: So this game will be a side story?

Nomura: That's right. My own feelings are that I would like to give Sora a break from large adventures for a little while. So I'm thinking of making the next game's story focus on other characters.

Interviewer: So by a little while, do you mean that Sora's journey from Kingdom Hearts 2 hasn't finished?

Nomura: Yes. If you're talking about the mysteries that started from Kingdom Hearts 1, then those were all revealed. In the ending of Kingdom Hearts II, there was a scene where Sora received a letter from the King; for Sora, I would like you to consider this as a new beginning. The truth is, until the very end, I was considering whether or not to include a scene showing them setting off on a journey after reading the letter.

Interviewer: So, let's talk about this new story, which doesn't have Sora as the main character. What sort of story will it be?

Nomura: Well, I need to start with the story depicted in a Birth by Sleep. Aside from that, there's the story of how the King found his keyblade in the world of darkness and other things like that. Myself, one of the things I most want to do is to give Roxas more of a role to play. I think it would be interesting to flesh out more of the year he spent between his birth and disappearance. Or making Riku the main character, and writing about his desperate fight while Sora was asleep, and things like that. You get the impression that Riku summoned Roxas to a place of shadows, and that Riku is a master of shadows, so I would like to give him more exploration in the game.

Interviewer: Will there be anything different in the game system?

Nomura: I'd like to try something a little different to the previous games in the KH series. I'm not just talking about the next game, more about the next project, so I can't say that it will just be one game (laughs). For the Kingdom Hearts series, being made with our company and Disney, both companies have things in mind that we would like to make reality, so there's always at least two things we want to do.

Interviwer: What platform does it look like the next game will be released on?

Nomura: Hmm... Probably a hand-held platform. Right now we're working on titles for the PSP (FFVII Crisis Core), Nintendo DS (This Wonderful World) and for mobile phones (MONOTONE), so I wouldn't be surprised if it were on any of those platforms.

Interviewer: Is there any chance that this game may be released on multiple platforms?

Nomura: We haven't considered that in the development. If possible, I would like to make a system that suits the platform. But in contrast, in terms of ideas, I would want ideas that could be released on any platform.

Interviewer: The more I hear about the next game, the more exciting it sounds, but for the fans the first thing to do is to see KH2 Final Mix's secret movie isn't it?

Nomura: Yes. I'm worried that we made the conditions for getting the secret movie too hard, but through reading this guide, I hope the readers will be able to see the secret movie. Finding a way to defeat (the new boss) is tough, but I've seen it done, so I know it's not impossible (laughs). If you're able to see the new secret movie and turn your thoughts to the next Kingdom Hearts, I'd be very happy.

Moving on now, here's the second interview, that was recently posted, the poster, only put of a basic summary of what Nomura said, however that makes it much easier to read it.

Improving the Combat of Kingdom Hearts

Here are the following things Nomura stated he wanted to do, or problems that occurred in Kingdom Hearts II.

- "I was hoping earlier to mix combo's with magic for more variety, however this had to be taken out due to small issues with the system."

- "The Keyblade's stats never impacted on the game as much."

- "Before I was hoping to add a bit more flare to High Jump *laughs*"

Although this is not much, we can expect a more detailed interview with a scan in the near future hopefully.

Finally about Kingdom Hearts X, some of you are confused if this means the name of the next Kingdom Hearts game is called Kingdom Hearts X, I'm going to clear this up once and for all.

Kingdom Hearts "X" the X factor, just like they were in the Organization, is the common letter used for "Unknown". Which means they are unsure what the next Kingdom Hearts name is. This is a common thing, seen among games that have a spinoff, but their titles are not announced.

Hey everyone, it seems as though during some time Kingdom Hearts II has grown it's ranks to being shown on normal fruit products. As to advertise the game, or to help those that still play it. The back of each KH2 themed fruit snack contains a cutout of the character as well! Check out these photos of it taken by Madiyasha!

Also although it's not shown in the pictures, they also credited Kingdom Hearts 2 of being the Best seller.

Here are also 3 of the 20 hints, she got as well, of course these are just silly game tips we already know.

Game Tips:

18. Make sure to update your friends' equipment and abilities as they level up along with Sora. Check the menu screen often to see what new equipment and abilities have become available.

19. Each Keyblade is well suited certain situations. Choose your Keyblade wisely.

20. Did you know that holding down the L2 button changes the function of the right analog stick?"

Once again thank you Madiyasha for this info!
