Have the KH series become fanservice (too much)?

25 August 2017 - 07:21 PM

So, what do you guys think? Have the KH series become a chain of fanservice with the latest titles released (starting with DDD)? In my honest opinion, YES, IT HAVE BECOME. Want some examples? Here it goes:

 

*ANYBODY can have/wield a Keyblade (LEA): now, please, don't get me wrong, it's really cool to see Lea being able to wield a Keyblade (and his Keyblade's design is fantastic), but, honestly, this is very awkward. Come on, ever since we first saw him (in my case, KH2), his memorable weapon is the chakrams (sorry for the spelling). It's going to take some time to get used to see him using his Keyblade in action (and not his previous weapon). You see, the Keyblade in general was supposed to be a special weapon, which only very few had the ability to wield it, based on the strenght of their hearts. Yes, Lea has a strong heart, because he wants to save Roxas and Xion, but, if we go this way, then ANYBODY IN THE KH UNIVERSE HAS A STRONG HEART, even Donald and Goofy, the Princesses of Heart (aside from Kairi), Ariel, Naminé, Pete and Maleficent, the other Disney Villains, and so on. For me, things eventually started looking fishy back in BBS, when Yen Sid revealed to Terra that he is now a retired Keyblade Master. Even Braig, before fighting Terra, said: "It seems like EVERYONE has one of those these days". And now, even the 5th Union leader can wield one.

 

*The return of some characters who should've stayed dead: Sora and Riku destroyed both Ansem, Seeker of Darkness and Xemnas, so, why are they back? Yes, the time-travel stuff may be an answer, however, if we go this way, EVERY TIME A VILLAIN/CHARACTER IS KILLED, HE/SHE CAN SOMEHOW, BE REVIVED using this method. So, does that mean that all our previous journeys were for nothing? Like, seriously? Why don't Sora use the time-travel method and bring back Xion, Roxas and Naminé, then?

 

 

 

 


KH3 being released in 2018? Pffft...AS IF

12 August 2017 - 05:30 PM

In one of his latest interviews, Nomura said that he's pretty "confident" about a 2018 release year for KH3. Well, guess what: I DON'T BELIEVE HIM. At least, not 100%. Here are 2 reasons why:

 

1) I'm on the team that believes KH3 will have 20 worlds (since he said KH3 will have more worlds than KH2). 20 = 7 lights + 13 darknesses. And if, again, IF this comes true, then let's count how many worlds we have so far (Confirmed worlds said by SE themselves or shown on screenshots, artworks, etc. I'm not going to consider probable/possible worlds here, like Frozen, for example):

 

1.1) Twilight Town;

1.2) Tangled (Rapunzel's world);

1.3) San Fransokyo (Big Hero 6 world);

1.4) Mount Olympus (Hercules world);

1.5) Toy Story world;

1.6) The Mysterious Tower or Symphony of Sorcery;

 

Do you guys see? Only 6 worlds out of the 20 ones have been revealed so far. And, I've read on this site that the next KH3 information/news will only come out at D23 Japan next year (which, actually, should happen THIS year). Even if he announces 1 world per month from D23 onward, there's no way he can show us all the 14 remaining worlds KH3 will have (like he said he would do: reveal all the worlds) before it launches (unless he reveals 2 worlds each month or something like that, but this is highly unlikely. He's never done that before and the chances are very slim he'll do that).

 

2) He is getting a little overconfident. I'm pretty sure Hajime Tabata and Nomura were also very confident they could release Final Fantasy XV and KH 2.8 FCP in September and December, respectively, and we all saw what happened, right? Who's to say this won't happen again? Delays happen all the time, don't they? Especially when SE is too afraid of the idea of FFXV competing with Persona 5 and then, what happens? Both games are delayed. And this delay affected 2.8's original release date, which was supposed to be December.

 

Well, this is it. I hope I'm 100% wrong, but, until the game launches, I won't trust Nomura 100%.


How can I be hyped for KH3 after THIS?

18 July 2017 - 08:48 PM

I mean, seriously? KH3 will have LESS DISNEY WORLDS THAN KH2? Yes, I know they'll have more content, but, come on. 1 of the top funniest things to do in KH games is exploring Disney worlds and they're reducing them? If the plot of the movies are the problem (since the worlds will be more involved in the story this time, right?), honestly, I wouldn't mind an original plot for all Disney worlds, but, please, don't do this kind of thing. It's heartbreaking. Guys, with all due respect to everybody in the KH community, but, this News has lowered my hype for KH3 cosmically. I believe that, for the first time ever, I'll be much more interested in the overall plot of the game than the story of each Disney world. :sad: :sad: :sad: : : : That is, unless you guys can give me a really, REALLY convincing conter argument for that to cheer me up.

 

PS: I understand DDD's case (where they did the exact same thing), but, at least, that was because of plot conveniences (7 sleeping keyholes must be unlocked and on...). Also, they're reducing exactly 1 of the top aspects that got the KH franchise so popular all these years: the fact that we can visit Disney worlds and Interact with its characters. Honestly, that doesn't make any sense.


Which KH3 trailer has been the best so far?

16 July 2017 - 07:18 PM

1) The E3 2013 KH3 reveal trailer?

2) The D23 2013 gameplay reveal trailer (First Attraction Flow reveal and Mount Olympus confirmed as a world)?

3) The E3 2014 short teaser trailer (Young Xehanort talking with Young Eraqus)?

4) The E3 2015 trailer (New Attraction Flows and Keyblade Transformations, alongside Rapunzel's world reveal)?

5) The Jump Festa 2016 trailer (The return of the Yellow Opera and Pink Agaricus Heartless)?

6) The 2017 Orchestra trailer (more than 2 party members and lots of other new stuff)?

7) The D23 2017 trailer (Toy Story world reveal trailer, many more new features and, finally, a RELEASE DATE)?

 

Mine is number 7. :biggrin: :rolleyes: :wink: xP ;) xD


How will the Disney worlds's stories/plots be "divided"?

14 July 2017 - 05:38 PM

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.
