Tetsuya Nomura's 3rd Birthday Posts Make Twitter Worthwhile

Character designer posts images from PSP title's script.


You may not like Tetsuya Nomura's character design or game direction choices, but I think we can all agree on one thing: the guy makes a Twitter feed worth visiting.

Square Enix's The 3rd Birthday feed was pretty much worthless until Tetsuya Nomura signed on yesterday. Actually, it was still pretty much worthless after he signed on yesterday.

Today, however, he posted two images:

The one at top was part of a post meant to test posting images to Twitter. The pic depicts two of The 3rd Birthday's scripts. The one in back is for the scenario. The one in front is for the game's battles. It has text for the wireless navigator voice and battle voices. Recording is set to begin shortly, said Nomura.

When is shortly? In a following post, Nomura said that he's headed to Osaka tomorrow (Friday), and so the team won't be able to do recording this week. Next week comes Obon break, and although there will be a team in place, they may not be in a state to do recording. Finished Nomura: "I wonder if I will be able to take a vacation?"

The second image shows a conversation from the beginning of the game as you head off on your first mission. The conversation is between Aya and and Hyde (whom I believe is a higher-up with the Counter Twisted Investigation forces).

Based off the dialogue, it looks like Aya is in a prison cell. Hyde has just removed a watch over her and offers her a new room, but she refuses. After leading her out, Hyde tells her that she should value herself more.

Let's hope we won't have to wait too long to see the rest!

Incidentally, Nomura made these posts at between 3 and 5 in the morning. However, he indicated, once again, that he had yet to sleep. It looks like Nomura may be a vampire.
