See there is a very interesting difference between what the books says in english and in german.In german there is one line that exists that isnt in the english version and it says "oh you children of darkness born from me" How this me?
An iffy translation isn't proof of anything. Apprentice Xehanort/Ansem, Seeker of Darkness wrote that. It was most likely talking about how he created Emblem Heartless and started the mass overpopulation of Pureblood Heartless.
NOTE: I am talking about the pure blood heartless not the one made by Xehanort during his time with ansem
We already know how Pureblood Heartless are created, and it's not the Devil. Pureblood Heartless are what you turn into when you succumb to the darkness and they are what you can create from the darkness in your heart. They are the darkness from the heart turned sentient (except not really since they can't feel things and only act on instinct lol).
But yeah, Pureblood Heartless are what people turn into when they allow the darkness of their heart to take over and consume and corrupt their heart. They aren't spawned from the Devil or from Chernabog.
I will admit though, I do find the naming of Demon Tower and Demon Tide strange and interesting. Especially since their Japanese names translate more to "Devil's Tower" and "Devil's Wave". I think it's most likely just something Nomura thought sounded cool though.
I'm honesty surprised you posted about this. IGN has such a bad rep around here with KH, this is almost like having a Black History Month Rally and the main speaker is the head of the KKK -_-
IGN's bad rep in the KH community doesn't make this any less news.
Also, the KH2 section of the IGN article is written by Jonathon Dornbush, who actually knows his stuff when it comes to KH and is a huge fan of KH. Every KH article written by him has been great and accurate. He shouldn't get blamed for other IGN employees' mess ups.
