Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura revealed new details regarding the setting of Kingdom Hearts 4, known as the square.
We caught a glimpse of the new setting in the Kingdom Hearts 4 debut trailer last weekend during the series' 20th anniversary celebrations (find it here if you missed it), however, while it looks like the "real world", it doesn't. is, since it has been defined as something very similar to an afterlife (we talk about it better in our analysis and theories article that you can find at this link).
Speaking in a new interview, Nomura revealed that the room Sora wakes up in is an area of Tokyo known as Miami-Aoyama. “That room will be the base for the first part of the game,” she commented. Below is the complete declaration:
From each of our perspectives, our perceptions change. In Kingdom Hearts Union X the Master of Masters said something like this.
From Sora's point of view, Quadratum is an underground world, an imaginary world different from reality. But from the point of view of the inhabitants of the Quadratum side, the world of Quadratum is reality, and the world that Sora and the others were in is the other side, the imaginary world.
Nomura also revealed that Sora's appearance may be due to his appearance in Quadratum and that this may not be the case for the entire game. hinting that that will not be the only location of the title. He also revealed that Donald and Goofy are "looking for clues about Sora in the original world".
These are the latest news that we have at our disposal, we just have to wait for further news that we hope will be revealed at least by the end of the year, so we cross our fingers. Kingdom Hearts 4 appears to be an ambitious title, a new starting point that we are sure will mark the series forever.
