Sad news to report today, as it has been announced that Pat Carroll, the voice of Ursula, has sadly passed away at her home at the age of 95. Pat has indicated that Ursula was one of her favorite roles, reprising the role multiple times after the release of 'The Little Mermaid', including in three Kingdom Hearts games (KH1, KH2, and KH3D).

RIP Pat Carroll
GameInformer recently got a chance to chat with series director Tetsuya Nomura to discuss Kingdom Hearts IV (and the series in general as well). Topics discussed include the reasoning behind the lack of Final Fantasy cameos recently, expanding on Quadratum's role in KH4, and how Nomura was hesitant at first in allowing Sora to join the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. Check out the interview below:

Hey everyone, today we're releasing the first batch of Kingdom Hearts III cutscenes in 4K / 60FPS, at Max PC Settings.

You'll definitely need a beefy hard drive to fit these, as this set alone is nearly 40 GB, and KH3 as a whole will probably be around 130 GB once it's done! As you can imagine though, the quality is stunning; it looks nearly identical to playing the game in real-time on a high-end PC. I understand this isn't feasible for everyone, so we'll be uploading them to a YouTube Playlist as well. The quality won't be quite as good, but for those who want the next-best thing, it's there.

Going with our recent trend, these scenes have 2 audio tracks, one with background music and one without. And thanks to the USMToolkit made by Rikux3, even most pre-rendered scenes can have their music turned off. Those pre-rendered scenes have a few caveats on the music-less tracks: it uses mono audio, so no panning effects, and a lot of sound effects are missing due to how the 5.1 surround was divided up. But dialog is all good: think of it as a cool bonus ;)

Kingdom Hearts III Cutscenes (4K)(60FPS)

This set goes from the start of the game to Kingdom of Corona. I'm doing it in parts because of how much space the raw capture files take up. If I did everything in one go it would fill up my hard drive haha, so I'm moving them to an external drive every now and then. Plus I figured it's better to give people access as soon as possible, what with how long this takes. Hopefully the next part will come out a bit faster.

Following the major reveals last weekend during the Kingdom Hearts 20th anniversary event regarding the future of the series, Famitsu conducted an interview with Tetsuya Nomura, who shares some information on 'Kingdom Hearts: Missing Link' and 'Kingdom Hearts IV', such as the confirmation that Reaction Commands will be returning in KH4, hinting that Quadratum may be the "tutorial world" of KH4, and providing a sneak preview for a new gameplay mechanic called "Scrap & Build". Check out the translated interview below (courtesy of KHInsider):
An expanded version of the interview will be available in the May 12-19 issue of Weekly Famitsu (which goes on sale April 28th). We'll be sure to update the article with the additional information from Nomura once the expanded interview is available.


The extended version of the interview has been released (and translated once again by KHInsider), where Nomura provides some additional info, such as confirmation that the Foretellers/Lost Masters are the main villains in KH4, work on KH4 with Unreal Engine 5 has already started, and giving some insight on the setting of Missing Link. Check out the rest of the interview below:

Following the major announcements regarding the future of the series (including the confirmation of Kingdom Hearts 4!!!), the development staff conducted a Q&A session with fans in attendance, providing some interesting pieces of information. Several Twitter users who attended the event posted what was discussed, and KHInsider was able to compile all the answers, which can be viewed below:
