Tetsuya Nomura Would Like Voice Recognition With Kinect and PlayStation Camera in Kingdom Hearts III

Kingdom Hearts III Game Director Tetsuya Nomura seems to be definitely interested in the features coming with the Xbox One and the PS4 thanks to Kinect and to the PlayStation Camera, and his personal favorite seems to be voice recognition, as he stated as part of a larger interview on the French fansite KHDestiny.

We’d love to implement those features in Kingdom Hearts III, but the one we find most interesting is voice recognition. I feel it would be awesome to be able to control Donald and Goofy with your voice and tell them what to do. That would be nice, wouldn’t it?

How do you feel about it? Do you actually think the idea would be nice, or (like me) you still prefer the old dear controller and its traditional and trustworthy buttons? Whether you like the idea or not, I guess the option can’t hurt, as long as it’s just an option, even if the ability to order Disney characters around like puppets does seem somehow appealing, especially for emergency commands.
