I know what you guys might be thinking right now: "What do you mean by divided"? OK, calm down, everybody, I'll explain:
Remember back in BBS and DDD when the protagonists each visited a Disney world and stayed there until a certain moment (For example: Ventus stayed in Castle of Dreams only until Jaq and himself fixed Cinderella's dress, remember? Also, Sora visited Pranksters's Paradise only until Pinocchio and Jiminy were swallowed by Monstro)? Well, then, this got me thinking how the Disney worlds's plot will be divided in KH3. If you still don't get what I mean, don't worry, I'll give one more example:
Kingdom of Corona (Rapunzel's world)
1st visit: Sora, Donald and Goofy (they arrive in this world and stay there until, for example, they help Rapunzel, Flynn and Pascal escape the guards, or the Heartless, in the Snuggly Duckling).
2nd visit: Riku and King Mickey (they guide Rapunzel and Flynn to the lanterns while fending off Heartless and stay there until Flynn is ambushed by The Stabbington Brothers and captured by the royal guards, while Rapunzel goes back to the tower with Mother Gothel).
3rd visit: Kairi and Lea (they learn that Rapunzel is in great danger and Flynn is about to be executed and go to the rescue of both of them).
Guys, I've already said it, but, I'll say it only one more time: THIS...IS...JUST...AN...EXAMPLE...OK? Just to make things more clear, you know?
So, what's you guys's opinions on this thread? Do you think we'll get to visit not just this world, but all of Disney worlds, with Sora, Donald and Goofy only or do you think we'll have a kind of BBS theme, where'll visit each world once with each main playable character (assuming Riku, Mickey, Kairi and Lea will be, you know, playable character and party character)?
IMHO, I would really, REALLY love for Kairi to visit Disney worlds (something I've wanted to do since the first KH title) with Lea, because, you see, they barely know each other, and this would be the perfect opportunity for them to get to know each other better and learn with one another (just like how Sora learned many things from Donald and Goofy and Riku learned quite a lot from Mickey, right?). Also, a Frozen world is pretty much confirmed for KH3, and the idea of Elsa fearing her powers is very, VERY similar to the situations Riku has been through the games, isn't it? Just like how he inspired Quasimodo to go outside and see the world, I can see Riku giving Elsa some really good advices about controlling her fears/powers or something like that.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but, I think that, once again, Sora might, MIGHT be the only playable character in KH3, where he and Donald and Goofy will visit the Disney worlds from the beggining of the original movie story to the end. You see, Riku and Mickey will be too busy finding a way to the Realm of Darkness (in order to rescue Aqua) and finding previous Keyblade wielders (as stated by SE in their press conference at KH3 E3 2013, remember?). While Kairi and Lea must hasten their training if they take part in the final battle against the 13th darknesses.
Anyway, leave your thoughts here, everybody, pretty please.
Hey, guys, how's it going? So, in, this topic, I would love to know your ideas about which FF characters (it can be either heroes/villains/antiheroes...) should be added in KH3. There is no limit: you can choose from FF1 to FFXV and/or even spin-offs and non-canonical titles, anime, manga, mobile games...LITERALLY EVERYTHING/ANYTHING. Oh, and if you can/if possible, try to put that character in a Disney world (for example, Vaan is a pirate, right? So, what better world to be his home than a Treasure Planet world, right?). You see, just because it's a FF character, that doesn't mean he/she has to necessarily live in Hollow Bastion/Radiant Garden, you know? Take Zack, for example, we only saw him in Olympus Coliseum, didn't we? Also, KH3 seems like the perfect chance for us (the fans) to tell the KH team which underrated FF characters we would love to see in the game (since who knows how long it will take between KH3 and KH4, right?)
1) What did Nomura mean when he said that, at D23 next month, he will provide the "Final Information" about KH3? Is it the last info we'll hear about KH3 for now or until the game launches?
2) The ending of the trailer says "New World" announcement in July 15. But, um, is this announcement about a new, REALLY NEW, NEVER SEEN BEFORE world or could it be a returning world?
3) The ending of the trailer also says "New trailer" coming at D23 next month. But, pretty sure I read somewhere that it's only going to be an extended version of the Orchestra trailer. So, which one is going to be?
1) What the new characters will look like (appearance/personality-speaking);
2) If the next saga's villain/villainess is just as dangerous and cunning as Xehanort;
3) The next saga's main theme/plot;
AND LAST, BUT NOT LEAST (AKA:The most important aspect):
4) How long the time gap between KH3's and KH4'S release date will be.
With that last thing said, many of you might be thinking right now: "Don't be impatient. These things take time". Yes, I'm clearly aware of that. I try my best to be as much patient as I can be, believe me. But, the real point here is: "Nobody, and I'll say it again, NOBODY has infinite patience". Patience is good, sure, but, it has its limits. I don't want to wait another 10 years for a numbered title again, ever. However, this might not be the case. We'll probably have to wait another 10 years (again). Why, you ask? It's simple.
Many members of the KH community are asking Nomura for a full remake of Days and Re: Coded (as playable games, of course). And Nomura will probably consider these requests and might actually remake one (or both, depending on the demand) of them. Besides, I remember very clearly that I read an interview in this site (Sorry, can't remember which interview was, though) that he also said that after KH3, he would like to tell the "full story" of 0.2 (What he means by "full story", I have no idea, because, 0.2 seemed pretty good and complete, despite how short it is). Not only that, but he's also in charge of Final Fantasy VII Remake (Worth reminding that he announced this title just a few months after he abandoned Final Fantasy XV. LOL, can you guys imagine if Nomura hadn't stepped down from FFXV's development? He would be in charge of 3 big titles and FFXV wouldn't have been released yet. It still would be in "Now in development" stage). And, please, everybody, let's be 100% honest here: between KH3 and FFVIIR, which title do you think he will give more attention? Seriously, let's say the cold and cruel truth here: of course he will give more attention to FFVIIR. Doubtless. It's the most iconic game of the franchise and Square Enix's cashing cow. Oh, and let's not forget that, while he remakes Days and Re: Coded, he'll still be in charge of directing the "episodes" of FFVIIR, so the remake of the KH titles will probably be delayed.
Guys, from the bottom of my heart: I don't want to wait another 10 years for a numbered KH title/game. This is a complete disrespect to the consumer and the fans. And this situation gets a lot worse when Square Enix makes us wait 15 months for KH3 news, and, when the time comes, they don't keep their promise. Not to mention that, when they show us a trailer, it's one which has stuff we've already seen in a past event, but with only 1 or 2 new scenes/shots (You know, the D23 Expo Japan 2015, which was pretty much the same trailer from E3 of the same year, with just 1 or 2 new stuff and that's it). Oh, yeah, let's not forget of the lovely and sweet private trailers that were only shown to people who attented a special event (the KH3 trailer at 2.5 HD Remix launch event back in 2014, and, of course, the private trailer at D23 Japan back in 2015).
If Square Enix makes us wait more 10 years between KH3 and KH4, only to do all these bullshits again, I can assure you: I will give up/quit/"jump the ship" after KH3, for sure. Those KH days and waiting days will all be behind me (temporarily or permanently).
Anyway, what about you guys? What are your opinions on this thread?
Hey, guys, it's me again. How is it going? So, then, here's a question: did you guys notice that in 0.2 BBS AFP, our little King Mickey sort of spoiled how he and Riku might/will save Aqua in KH3? Remember that Yen Sid said (in 0.2 secret ending) that, in order to rescue Aqua from the Realm of Darkness, Mickey and Riku must find an entrance to the ROD first? All right, and now is when this image comes:
(For those who can't open the file, it is an image of Mickey talking to Aqua in the ROD (in 0.2 BBS AFP). Mickey says to Aqua: "It's only when a world gets consumed, that an entrance appears in the realm between").
And here is where the horror movie begins: Does that mean that, in order to enter the Realm of Darkness, a world must get consumed (by the darkness, of course), and then an entrance to the dark realm will appear in the realm between (Twilight Town, maybe? Remember in KH2 when this world was connected to TWTNW?)? Because, if so, then which poor world will be sacrificed for our heroes to enter the ROD?
So, what's your opinions, everybody? What do you all think about this? Don't be shy and discuss here.
That possibility certainly exists. However, Disney villains haven't really been important to the main plot, with the exception of Maleficent. Others like Jafar only contributed in the first game.
Still, seeing another Disney villain be important to the plot would be nice. Especially with Mother Grothel's backstory, it would make things interesting.
Lol, regardless if The Keyblade War happened 400/500 years ago or 1000 years ago, I'm sure she knows something about it that neither the old coot nor his vessels knows. She is older than the entire KH cast (except from a really few characters like Hades, who is a god, Genie, Chernabog, possibly Ventus and others).
That's a good point. She goes to the flower for centuries and stays alive for all that time. It does make you wonder if indeed she has any idea about the Keyblade War. I am leaning toward no, but you never know.
Well, they shouldn't, but KH characters somehow know there are other worlds and events that took place in them (e.g King Triton somehow knew about The Keyblade War back in KH1, Master Xehanort informed Maleficent back in BBS about outside worlds).
For those who have no idea who I'm talking about, she's the main antagonist of Disney's 2010 hit animated feature Tangled. And, since a world based on this film has been confirmed to appear in KH3, she will undoubtedly appear in Corona's Kingdom (or whetever Rapunzel's world will be called) in KH3 as the main antagonist.
Now, let's get to the point of this thread. Think about it for a second: as Flynn Rider told us in the prologue of the movie, Mother Gothel has been selfishly using the Golden Flower's magical healing power for HUNDREDS OF YEARS (he doesn't say exactly how many years, but many fans speculate it's about 400/500 years) and became completely overprotective of this item to the point of kidnapping an infant Rapunzel, isolating themselves in a tower and raising the girl as her own daughter only to abuse the magical power of Rapunzel's hair. Now, there is a reason why I highlighted and caps-locked the words "HUNDREDS OF YEARS". Why I did this, you may ask yourselves? It's simple. The answer is quite simple, with three words: The Keyblade War.
Since this old lady has been living for so many (hundreds of) years, Master Xehanort (and/or any of his 12 vessels) will probably visit this world to ask her if she knows anything about The Keyblade War (which, in my opinion, she surely has heard some stuff about it, considering how old she is).
Hey there everyone, how's it going!? So then, as we all know, Nomura was interviewed a little while back, and when asked upon Kingdom Hearts III's development, his answer made it sound like the game might not release this year. With that said, now all of us are speculating the game's release to be 2018, at the earliest, and 2019 at the latest. I'd like to think that 2018 would be the year for Kingdom Hearts III, and I think there's actually a nice way that Nomura could reveal, at the very least, the release window!
Let's think toward E3. Now, since this is the 15th Anniversary of the Kingdom Hearts series, I'm expecting this year will be like 2015 in terms of the overflow of Kingdom Hearts III news we'll most likely receive. Now then, we could get a trailer at E3 that shows all kinds of amazing story and gameplay aspects, and then, at the very end, we get a "Coming 2018" release window! Now, if I'm talking about a specific date, I think that March of 2018 would be nice! That way, from E3 to March of 2018, we'd have to wait 9 months for the game to release, and that would no doubt make our minds blow up with hype and excitement! Of course, the release date could be just as easily revealed at Tokyo Game Show, Jump Festa or D23, since I recall Nomura saying that he might do something for D23! But yes, March 2018 sounds ideal, but I'm guessing we'll probably get a "Coming 2018" release window instead, and I'd be okay with that, cuz I'd know the game would come out next year, ya know?
What are your thoughts on this, everyone?
First of all: now you really believe it won't come out in 2017 anymore, right? (Just kidding)
Second: If, and I will say it again, IF it comes out this year, it will probably be in the last weeks of December.
Third: Honestly, guys, I'm one of those persons who seriously doubted KH3 would be released this year due to various reasons (if you want to know what these reasons are, just ask me). But, Key-san and everybody else, remember one thing: WE'RE STILL IN JANUARY. MANY THINGS COULD HAPPEN UNTIL DECEMBER ARRIVES, AND WHO KNOWS, MAYBE KH3 MIGHT (again, MIGHT) be released in the very ending of this year. So, you can keep your hopes up, everybody, but please, NOT TOO UP, OK?
And finally: If KH3 is not released this year: WHAT A WAY TO CELEBRATE THE SERIES'S 15TH BIRTHDAY, huh?
Hmm, not really, actually. I'm open to any world returning! Heck, I'd be fine with Atlantica returning, too! (I didn't mind the whole musical thing Atlantica had in KHII! If you ask me, that version of Atlantica actually embraced the whole musical aspect of Disney films, ya know?)
Well, Disney worlds that I think might return are:
Port Royal! (Only this time, it would be called something along the lines of The Caribbean Sea, since from Dead Man's Chest onwards, there are much more locales aside from Port Royal, so it wouldn't make sense calling it Port Royal again. With all the new areas, it could be considered a new world!)
The Hundred Acre Wood! (The Book Of Pooh has always been in the numbered entries of the series, so I think it only fitting that it returns for III!)
The Pride Lands! (Because I'd love to see the story of Simba's Pride play out, since the whole thematic of Kovu and his darkness fits in with the Kingdom Hearts Universe pretty well!)
Halloweentown! (As with Port Royal, there's the other holiday doors aside from Christmastown, so we could visit the other holiday towns, and those areas could count for a new world! Plus, I wanna see Jack and the gang again in glorious Kingdom Shader form! )
Agrabah! (Since we already know that Mt. Olympus will mark yet another KH game to feature a world based on Disney's Hercules, then it's safe to assume Agrabah will follow suit, too! Like Olympus, Agrabah's a staple of the Xehanort Saga at this point! X3)
I see. Key-san, is there any Disney world(s) you don't want to return?
