In a recent exclusive interview with Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory Director Masanobu Suzui and Producer Ichirou Hazama, the executives clarified a feature that both language versions of the game will specifically have.
Game publication DualShockers asked the duo about the possibility of an English/Japanese dual-audio option for the game. Hazama and Suzui explained how the game will be for the two versions:
It’s already set, so if you buy the Japanese version of the game you will get the Japanese audio. If you get the overseas version, you get the English voice. I’m afraid we won’t have dual-language functions.
Sorry to disappoint the English-speaking fans, but if they will get the overseas version of the game they will definitely get the English voice ONLY. The Japanese version will get the Japanese audio. The subtitles might also work the same way as well. The Japanese version will get Japanese subtitles, while the overseas version will only get their respective language subtitles.
Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory will launch on Nov. 13 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in North America and Europe.
