Kingdom Hearts 20-Year Anniversary Illustration Will Be Next Weekly Famitsu Cover; Features Art Corrections

Famitsu has revealed that the cover of their next issue of Weekly Famitsu will feature the newly unveiled Kingdom Hearts 20-year anniversary illustration by Tetsuya Nomura. This is a far higher quality image than what we have seen in photos previously, and hopefully, a clean variant of the artwork will be provided soon.

It is also worth acknowledging that parts of this illustration have been corrected since its initial showing, with Strelitzia’s hairpins being arranged to their proper places and Naminé’s dress now having their straps. Nomura stated that his work on this illustration approached a close deadline, so those minor errors are understandable.

Further, this issue of Weekly Famitsu will contain the full interview with Tetsuya Nomura that was previewed earlier in the month, so fans can look forward to more information regarding Kingdom Hearts IV, Kingdom Hearts Missing – Link, and Kingdom Hearts Dark Road.

In Kingdom Hearts IV, Sora is in Quadratum with Strelitzia, a prominent character from Kingdom Hearts Union χ. This setting is an afterworld for the two characters following their tragic fates. Additionally, this new saga has been titled the Lost Master Arc. Further, some combat footage was showcased, with Sora performing Keyblade transformations against a giant entity that seems to be a Heartless? We don’t know for sure.

“The heart resides within the soul, which in turn is guided by fate to its rightful place” is a crucial phrase used at the start of this trailer for the upcoming mainline game.
