Kingdom Hearts III Composer Yoshitaka Suzuki Reveals Creative Process For Davy Jones’ Tracks

One of the additional composers for Kingdom Hearts III, Yoshitaka Suzuki, recently shared some comments about the cutscene tracks he composed for The Caribbean, specifically correlating to Davy Jones. Suzuki composed three tracks, “Hearts of Courage,” “The Victorious,” and a track unavailable in the official soundtrack. These songs were purposefully made with the intention of crafting a unique motif for Davy Jones due to the original music from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End being unusable.

Hanz Zimmer, a well-known composer who worked on the aforementioned film, was an integral source of inspiration for Suzuki, even being one of his favorite composers. Additionally, Suzuki explained how aside from expected directives by Kingdom Hearts III’s music director, he had the freedom to compose what he desired. Moreover, Tetsuya Nomura had no role in the creative process, granting a moderate sense of insight regarding what the compositional process for Kingdom Hearts III was like.

You can view Yoshitaka Suzuki’s quote tweet regarding the matter below via a fan (@Titan_Trainer) highlighting the relevant tracks:

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.
