Is he likely to have info or is he just excited like the rest of us?
Literally just the latter.

This is what makes the wait actually annoying, really. Not the wait itself but tweets like that which make a ton of people start to lose it before needing to be told that it's just "I'm excited".

I swear sometimes they do it on purpose

Midori last leaks in a group chat before he deleted the account.
I share it, and now it is up to each one to decide whether to believe it or not.

Midori claimed to have seen new footage of Kingdom Hearts 4, the game apparently has a world based on Moana.
He also reconfirmed that Sora is indeed coming to Fortnite.

About the Moana world, he said in that chat:
Midori: KH4 has a world from a series that isn't going to be what people expect, was surprised when I saw it.
Someone: What's the KH4 world theme?
Midori: island, so take a guess

The dying words of a desperate fraud, seconds before total annihilation at my hand. A life wasted chasing pitiful engagement, drowning in a proverbial swamp of lies, unable to bask in the glorious light of a life lived on good intentions... I cut through this meager hearted individual with a blade of truth and I forget them!

Could we get a surprise that h.a.n.d. has been developing a game that’ll be next? I still think they must be working on something unannounced after NEO: TWEWY released three years ago. If they are, the Direct would be a good place to announce it. 👀

I'd love to see something new from them, NEO got me hooked for a good couple of months... And if they're working on something, and that hypothetical something is a project under Square, let's just hope it wasn't canceled amongst the financial crisis.

Midori is a "he", and they've been confirmed to know nothing outside a Sega plan document for 2021-23. That's why to used to have legit info, but now spout random nonsense.

If hand's making a new game what do you guys want it to be?

I'm hoping we get a 358/2 Days + Re:Coded remaster combo. I think both games deserve to be remastered

"""leaks"""

Whatever, lol.

Can't believe the only actual leaks I can remember KH having are just accidental or cuz some guy didn't get caught stealing from his job.

Right, a he. Edited.

People has decided to believe a random document that "confirms" things about Midori, and it is just as stupid as believing an account of a white guy pretending to be a japanese girl. The only thing we can be sure it confirms is his true identity. The rest could be just as much of a lie as Midori's "leaks".

What the document "proved" was that Midori did not get his information himself, but mostly from other people. That he was not a "true leaker". He had information from Sega and used it to exchange it for information from other companies. So his veracity should be the same. False until proven otherwise.

And the Internet deciding to question Midori's veracity because of that document, and not before, is hilarious. As if what has happened to him hasn't happened countless times before.

I don't care about Midori, Pyoro or whoever. I think leaking is despicable. And I don't believe anything until proven otherwise, and I think I've proven that on this forum. But that people are so manipulable scares me, especially now with AI.

Kids, don't believe everything you read on the internet.

how is moana not what people expect... everyone is still listing all the normal disney worlds they want in the game all the damn time
I think he's not talking about the Moana world not being expected, but that the Moana world won't be as we would expect.

Regardless of Midori's comments or not, Moana was always a guarantee for the series at some point. Moana mirrors Sora's story incredibly well, and the whole bit about the darkness encroaching because Te Fiti lost her heart... it writes itself.

—After KH2 was released, Pixar was purchased by Disney. Did this expand the range of worlds available for you to include in this title?

Nomura: Actually, we did make a few trial models of characters from Monsters Inc and Toy Story during the production of KH2, and we did begin negotiations to have them appear in the game. We did have to shelve them in the end, but I felt I couldn't make KH3 without including Pixar works, so I started up negotiations again—and this time, the situation between Disney and Pixar had changed, and we were able to make it happen. After we had finished deciding all the worlds for this game, Disney and Pixar kept releasing fascinating titles. I found myself wishing over and over again that we could have included this and that.
This totally was a comment about Moana. Nomura probably would have loved to have drawn the parallel between a character falling to darkness and losing their heart and bringing them back to the light with Te Fiti's story during KH3.

Disney and Pixar released some fantastic films within the last decade. I'd be happy with so many of the recent films being chosen and I really hope the world selection for 4 is good. Just maybe not Zootopia because I don't want to see that Judy Hopps tiktoker make videos about the series 🤮.

I want Zootopia even though I know nothing about that movie other than some character designs I saw before, which I quite liked and is the reason I want it lol.

I still want Moana to be in the game so badly.
I also want Toy Box to be a returning world so the meme of Donald and Goofy asking Rex for a crash course on the lore of Verum Rex can become a reality.

Personally if 4 just has a bunch of normal Disney worlds like all the other games than the whole conceit of the game would have to be solved early on which I think would be lame. I'd like it if we could have a whole game with just weird choices + Quadratum, since that's what everything was pointing towards and suggesting... but everyone keeps asking for more normal worlds anyway, idk.

It’s definitely worth a watch if you get the opportunity! I think it would be a cool setting for an original story where Sora has to team up with Judy and Nick to investigate a crime. Like how KH3 had unique mechanics in some worlds inspired by different types of video games, Zootopia could take some inspiration from detective games.

There really are so many excellent animated films they could include. So I hope it won’t be exclusively live action. But I still think Unreality should have a distinct type of world to set it apart from our main universe. The best way to handle it in my opinion is by giving Kairi her own scenario in the realm of light exploring traditional worlds while Sora explores live action ones in Unreality. Personally, I think a Moana world in particular would serve Kairi’s character arc more than Sora’s.

That's how I hope it ends up happening actually. I think I speculated before if Quadratum might just be a Twilight Town-esque prologue which Sora then returns to (or is forced to return to because plot--Yozora, in other words) at the end of the game. I personally hope that's the case. The only other options I think would actually enjoy is if it was a place where they have all FF characters instead of Disney which would never happen or if the Disney properties were used in very creative ways there that are almost KH1 Traverse Town-esque (say, something like Enchanted, with Giselle having somehow entered "the real world" which is Quadratum the same way Sora appeared there or having Mary Poppins as a world via chalk on a pavement somewhere, that kind of thing).

Speaking of Disney worlds. In Missing Link we know there will be the Kingdom of Corona. But obviously this is before KH3.

So, is there a prequel to Tangled in any type of media? Or is it going to be new material?

Same.
Something like 4 for Sora and 3 for Kairi, so she can find the 3 remaining new princesses of heart.

But Nomura said:
We saw Donald and Goofy in the Kingdom Hearts IV reveal, but one question a lot of fans have is how much will Disney still be integral to the series?

With regards to Kingdom Hearts IV, players are definitely going to see a few Disney worlds in there. I just want to mention that they don't need to worry so much about this aspect of the game. It might feel slightly different from previous Kingdom Hearts titles, but once players have had a chance to play the game, I'm sure they'll be relieved to find that it is definitely a Kingdom Hearts title. It’s the game series that they've come to know and love.

As far as the graphic qualities ... since with each new title, the specs have been really increasing and there's so much more we can do in terms of graphics, it kind of limits the number of worlds that we can create in a sense. At this time we're considering how to approach that, but there will be Disney worlds in Kingdom Hearts IV.

So maybe 7 worlds for KH4 are too much?
Or maybe Kairi's worlds could be "small", and Sora's the big ones?

i hope nobody is actually getting their hopes up for playable kairi in KH4... since riku is the one looking for sora, it's going to be riku again. even playable yozora is WAY more likely.

I believe the distortions will come into play to explain this. It’ll either be the memories, dreams, or future versions of those worlds that were able to travel to via the astral plane. I’d love if they pulled some material from the Tangled series.

Same.

Yeah that has me a bit doubtful as well. There’s also just the fact that having two main playable characters could make it harder to have really tight gameplay mechanics. Definitely not impossible, but I would prefer one main playable character with strong mechanics as opposed to two or three with weaker ones like we saw in BBS and DDD.

i hope nobody is actually getting their hopes up for playable kairi in KH4... since riku is the one looking for sora, it's going to be riku again. even playable yozora is WAY more likely.

I don’t think this is necessarily true. I could see it going either way. But personally, I think something might go awry for Riku, leaving Sora to deal with the consequences of someone coming after him. Which Xigbar warns of at the start of KH3.

Kairi is in the more unique position for her own scenario where she can explore more traditional worlds, meet up with our OG cast, and have significant development as she works to become a Keyblade Master in her own right. Even just from the gameplay perspective of starting at level 1 and gaining power over the course of the game, Kairi would make more sense. Riku exploring the same city/worlds as Sora would not be as interesting (although easier to implement.)

But I can definitely see an argument that Kairi should just have her own game at that point.
