I hope that KH3 actually is going to be on the PS4. Remember when they said Final Fantasy Versus 13 would be on the PS3, yet now they're saying it's going to be on the PS4? *shivers*

Wtf why is Square Enix giving the game to xbox one and hope the game is good enough since its not from the original developers.

Ehm, they probably will have it. In the trailer, it looked like gameplay when Sora jumped and rode the wave of Heartless, and he jumped off the wall too. It just looked less shiny/flashy than 3D, which is okay with me 'cause we can see more clearly that way. XD

A mature Sora huh? Well I hope so because in Dream Drop Distance Sora was acting kind of childish.

 

Lets hope he learned from getting kidnapped.

I'd say we will probably be in store for a 2.5 collection before that since they did show KH2,BBS and RE:CODED in the credits for 1.5, if it has been In development for 3 years than I doubt they would have put it in if they knew 3 would release so soon. though we might just end up getting one big xehanort saga collection with everything in it after 3 releases.



Yeah you probably right about that. I had just heard someone on a IGN video say it. But yeah Nourma said he had to make 1.5 HD remix since he was making KH3 so people could understand it. Beacuse people would be like.... What newcomers i mean
