Some sad news to report out of Japan today. Earlier today, it's been announceed that Keiji Fujiwara, known to Kingdom Hearts fans as the Japanese VA playing the role of Axel/Lea, has sadly passed away as he battled cancer. While Kingdom Hearts fans will always remember him as the Japanese voice of Axel/Lea, Keiji Fujiwara was also known for various anime roles, as well as the voice of Reno in Final Fantasy VII, and was even the official Japanese voice of the popular Marvel character Tony Stark/Iron Man.

Our deepest condolences to Keiji Fujiwara's friends and family in this tough time.

Check out Nomura's interview below (credit to Dandelion of KHInsider for translating the interview):
