Multiple Keyblade Transformations Will Appear in Kingdom Hearts III
Even director Nomura can't believe it!

In Birth By Sleep it became a vehicle, in the newest Kingdom Hearts III trailer it became a gun, and in an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, series creator and director Tetsuya Nomura explains the development team are only just getting started with the crazy keyblade transformations. He says there are many other "unbelievable transformations" and that even he is shocked by some of them. He mentioned that "The other day, when we were checking it out, the staff member said 'it turns into ____' and I impulsively replied with, 'Are you serious?'"

So far, Nomura has been pleased to see the positive reactions from fans. "It seems like everyone was happy [with the new features], so Im glad about that," he says. "However, while we know how far weve come from a development point of view, what we showed still has 'ways to go'." He goes on to say, with a laugh, that "the Keyblade has infinite possibilities."

While Kingdom Hearts III may still be some time away, Nomura explained he was currently hard at work writing and editing the scenario. The team is also working on development of Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX for PS3, so it's certainly a busy time for them!

Kingdom Hearts III will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but no date has been announced. Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix will be out on PS3 sometime this year.
