Singer-songwriter Hikaru Utada's father Teruzane Utada revealed on Twitter on Friday that Hikaru Utada has started working on the theme song for Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts III game.
Teruzane Utada had originally said in a Twitter post in October 2013 that he and his daughter would be involved in the Kingdom Hearts III theme song, but he took back that comment the next day, saying that "as of now it's undecided." The singer contributed the theme song "Simple and Clean" for the first Kingdom Hearts game, and the song "Sanctuary" for Kingdom Hearts II.
The singer's website launched her "New-Turn Project" to mark her return to music in March earlier this year. She released Fantôme (seen right), her first full album in eight years, on September 28. It debuted at #6 on the U.S. iTunes album chart.
Kingdom Hearts III is slated for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. Epic Games is assisting with the game's development, using Unreal Engine4. The game's confirmed worlds so far include Tangled and Big Hero 6.
