What is Kingdom Hearts?
Just waiting for Sora to pull a madoka and sacrifice himself (join with kingdom hearts or whatever) to make everything go away, then meaningful distance stares from the cast and then credits
Kingdom Hearts is probably actually corrupted by darkness or some shit. It'll be revealed that Kingdom Hearts is the source of all the heartless and darkness in the universe. They'll have a big "we were fighting for the darkness all along!??!?!?!" moment and then later cure Kingdom Hearts with the power of friendship.
Damn it, I want to see what kind of keyblades 3 is gonna have.
Ok, just a hint. I don't want to look up on how to beat him as I didn't need too with the others.
Just beat him without looking at what you guys said. But thanks.
I'm playing through 2 again, and it just hit me that Mickey acted totally normal when he met Xehanort while he was still Ansem's apprentice. I might be remembering BBS wrong, but shouldn't Mickey have known who Xehanort was? Why wouldn't he stop and think about the coincidence of old Xehanort and Terra disappearing when Ansem gets a new apprentice who is also named Xehanort and looks like the two combined?
>Thinking any part of the Japanese dub for KH is good
I mean only Riku's voice was better in Japanese, come on.
That's because it's the Final Mix version.
Oh boy, you dun fucked up now.
This also reminds me that Yen Sid is a fucking asshole who could have prevented tons of shit but didn't bother getting out of his chair
Still shouldn't the name have been enough? I don't think Xehanort is that common of a name to have
Until now that there are 13 of them
Yeah I played through it, dark 13 and light 7 time travel shit at the end. Shit's gonna be summarized in a nice HD cutscene at the start of 3, so there's pretty much no point.
Yeah Chain of Memories didn't impact shit expect the part about vastly altering Sora's memory, putting him in a coma for a fucking year, exposing the Organization's goals and internal conflicts, killing half of them, and explain everything that happened to Riku and his overly complicated struggle with the darkness.
I guess the First game doesn't matter since it's summarized in 2 in Jimmy's Journal and character dialogue, which also doesn't matter since it's gonna be recapped in 3 as well.
>Implying people die in Kingdom Hearts
You know it just occurred to me that the door from KH is clearly just the door to the realm of darkness, not Kingdom Hearts. Ansem believed Kingdom Hearts was hidden in the realm of darkness as per the legend -- that or he just thought the realm of darkness WAS Kingdom Hearts and that the legend was either wrong and/or sugarcoating it. Regardless, his reasoning was perfectly sound. It wasn't a matter of perspective, or believing, or "MUH FRIENDSHIP," there was literally no reason why anything other than darkness should've come out of that door. Except, I guess, Mickey.
The reason why I love it is because it has cool action combined with hilariously convoluted but fun to follow plot and memorable characters.
If you can get past or even enjoy its childish nature, just don't take it too seriously and it's an absolute blast.
Welcome to 10 years ago.
The difference is KH1 had about 10 hours of plot and dialogue (that wasn't even summarized entirely in the journals). The entirety of the DS spinoffs contribute about 5 minutes worth.
Is there a better action rpg than Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix?
>exposing the Organization's goals
CoM didn't have anything about the nobodies or the heart shaped moon made up of hearts, or anything about Xehanort's secret vessels.
CoM was about that one part of the Orgy13 being traitorous morons who had to be killed, and the rest of the Orgy13 were left vague and undefined.
I wish they would have toned down some of the hyper-activity of some of the combo finishers in some of the forms.
Like, I push one button to finish the combo, and fucking fireworks go off for ten seconds as I bounce around the whole stage. I'm not saying go back to KH1's "one button press = one swing", but they went a little overboard in KH2.
CoM was retconned-in exposition so that the stuff with nobodies and the organization in II would make sense. The only actual impact it made was the part about Sora being in a coma, and even then that literally didn't do anything except make Sora older.
All of the spinoffs are like this -- the main story runs out of characters/conflicts to explore(or at least Nomura thinks they do for some reason -- its not like we STILL haven't heard an explanation for the keyblade war, the origins of keyblades, the way the splitting of the worlds affected the various kingdoms/cultures, what the world was like before the split, why keyblades take the form they do, what Kingdom Hearts actually is...I could go on) so he retcons in a bunch of crap about how Xehanort is somehow still alive, seven lights and thirteen darknesses, a bunch of new characters with tragic histories that we have to save for some reason.
I beat KHI for the first time yesterday, but I've played most of the others.
Do people seriously think 1 is better than 2?
big boy game talking about poopsies ayyyyyyyyyyylmao
>xion's face is hidden
I rate 13/13 well memed
1 more closely follows the classic Square template -- there's more exploration/puzzles, the worlds actually tie in to the main story, the original mythos with Kingdom Hearts and the heartless and Ansem actually had potential and wasn't just a "orignl chrrctr donut steel" clusterfuck, the animations and world design were actually a mix of disney/cartoon style and anime flair, etc.
The second game is pretty much just a game. It "improves" on the first, but only by knocking out the middle making it either stupidly easy or the kind of thing only autists enjoy. It started all the fuckery with the plot, pretty much got rid of exploration/platforming, the worlds had nothing to do with anything, all the animations and effects are like 80% over-the-top stylish and only 20% endearing cartoon style.
Congratulations, you're technically correct(the best kind of correct). Yes, the spinoffs don't actually "retcon" anything because they don't change anything that's already been established(for the most part). However, when you introduce a completely new, pervasive plot element like Nobodies or the Organization, or even the fact that Yen Sid apparently used to be a keyblade master(which is closer to an actual retcon imo), with no foreshadowing, it strains suspension of disbelief and screws with theming. Sure, it's plausible that unless the Organization started intervening directly Sora would've never encountered a nobody, and sure you could say that Yen Sid never had a reason to talk about his past, but those defenses are weak when you consider that we're talking about a fucking WORK OF FICTION. All the elements are supposed to fit together into a thematic whole -- suddenly introducing elements has less to do with "realism," or whatever-the-fuck, than it has to do with having clear symbolism and clean narrative arcs.
All joking aside, what do you
fellowKHfags think Kingdom Hearts itself will be?
My guess is, when Xehanort opens it up in 3 (because of course it will happen), some cliche anime nonsense about learning the error of his ways becaue of how beautiful Kingdom Hearts is.
Either that, or he opens it up, and fucking nothing happens. He'll have wasted the better half of his entire life/lives for absolutely nothing.
When does 2.8 come out? I can't wait to play King DDD on PS4.
I really do think Tales has the number 2 slot on lock. Vespy is a good pick too
I hope Star Ocean 5 doesn't suck
Speaking of 3D, why exactly did Sora and Riku de-age in the dreamworld? I don't remember that ever being explained. And it's obvious they're younger because they still have the models from 2, where they're taller and slightly bulkier.
Nobodies were hinted at I'm 1FM, Yen Sid being a Keyblade Master definitely isn't close to being a retcon and if you have a hard time suspending your sense of disbelief over little things like that it's your problem, KH isn't grounded in realism.
So that they could forget their self-taught training, which is kind of funny because both still play the exact same way. Except for maybe Riku's version of the command styles.
Just as food for thought, I think KH1 already had a satisfying ending by itself. The story was simple and clean (pun somewhat intended) and it ends on a sad but uplifting note. There really were no cliffhangers in the original story.
If it didn't have any sequels or that stupid secret ending, Kingdom Hearts as a standalone game would have been a masterpiece.
I just turned 23 last month. I know how you feel. I still love the series and probably will continue to play as long as they're fun to me.
Because Yen Sid is never straight forward.
The entire ending is a cliff hanger though, even without the secret movie. Riku is gone, Kairi is left on Destiny island and there's a long road where the door to the realm of darkness was. It was set up for sequels from the beginning.
>- its not like we STILL haven't heard an explanation for the keyblade war, the origins of keyblades, the way the splitting of the worlds affected the various kingdoms/cultures, what the world was like before the split, why keyblades take the form they do, what Kingdom Hearts actually is...I could go on)
This is supposed to be/is being covered in X/Unchained X/X Back Cover and KH3.
It ends with Donald, Goofy, and Sora all running after Pluto who has a note from Mickey. I wouldn't call that a cliffhanger really though. It ends with them all smiling and being like "Let's go on another adventure you guys!" I view that as a nice ending, especially considering the letter amounted to nothing. It's similar to KH2's ending, which would have worked just as well.
But Enix just has to keep milking the poor thing.
He used their need for training as a way to air out some dirty laundry in the form of the sleeping worlds, it was a rushed job since he couldn't spend years training them like Eraqus did with TVA.
Nah, I think Eraqus was in the right place. Really, destroying Ventus would have stopped a lot of shit from happening. Sora and Riku already had experience and Yen Sid used that to speed up their training.
Are there any parallels between Star Wars and Kingdom Hearts? My mind is kinda trying to make a few connections but I'm too drunk to realize the full thing...
Aren't keyblade wielders kinda like Jedi masters?
Isn't Xeahnort kinda similar to Darth Sidious puling the strings from behind and ploting evil? There was a great war when a lot of Jedi/keyblade wielders died, and now there's only a few left. The masters travel to many worlds trying to rid the darkness and stuff. Xehanort seduces Terra by showing him the powers of the darkside/darkness. Like the starwars series, the first game was simple in it's story, and the prequels are over complicated and stuff. Isn't Mickey kinda like yoda?
Did you even read my post. I didn't view Mickey's letters as setting up another adventure, more as "we're three friends and we're gonna stick with each other!" That's a satisfying conclusion. Hell, remember when Riku said "take care of her." As though it was a grand sacrifice and he'd never see them again? It's almost as though Nomura had no vision of a sequel.
I meant more so in the fact that both of them have the amazing ability to withhold information.
That was intentional. Apparently Nomura wanted Spock and Luke to oppose each other in a pseudo Star Wars/Star Trek thing.
>Kingdom Hearts is light!
>Door opens, light explodes out
>The light destroys Ansem
>Everyone looks in the door
>It's a very dark place full of heartless
So... Ansem was right? Did he forget to check the door for traps?
MUH HEART ANDN LIGHT N DARKNESS AND MY FRIENDS
>shitty writing the game
Eraqus is played by Mark Hamill. Old Master Xehanort was played by Leonard Nimoy.
What opened at the end of KH1 was the Door to Darkness, KH was just shining bright from within it.
No no no, don't you see. There's light in the darkness!
But light also can't live darkness. And there's darkness in the light.
Basically Square Enix writes themselves into plotholes and gets out of them by spouting cliches.
It ends with Sora, Donald, and Goofy left behind after the worlds were saved, wandering aimlessly, with no idea where they are or how to return home, Riku and Mickey were still left in the realm of darkness, and SDG ran after Pluto because that was the only lead they had and that could probably help them get to Mickey.
I don't know how you don't see the cliffhanger there.
I haven't looked into it much, but as far as I'm aware even X doesn't properly explain the war, it's just a bunch of crap about "foretellers" and some traitor and it all smacks of yet another "but remember that guy who was supposed to be the bad guy? well actually it turns out there's an even ANCIENT-ER guy who's actually the bad guy!" as if that somehow explains anything or adds anything interesting to the story
>durr children are sooo dum guyz
This is why we can't have nice things. Besides, my whole point IS that the writing sucks. It's wasted potential, sure, but I'm perfectly happy to ignore it in favor of gameplay. It's when autists come in and try to defend it or argue that there aren't obvious ways to improve it that sets me off.
Kingdom Hearts is the same as Tails Gets Trolled because both series have characters with solid backgrounds saying and doing things that don't fit with their personality. It feels cheap and degrades everything it touches. It does have some charm, but it is trash culture created to make huge sums of money from idiots like you who get excited over Mickey Mouse wearing all black and wielding a sword. PS fuck you/suck my dick
So shouldn't Tidus be a nobody, since he doesn't exist and all?
I'm currently playing through Kingdom Hearts 1 on pcsx2 and downloaded 2, I've heard 2's final mix is better but where can I find the best English version/patch?
Also, how much you wanna bet on a Zootopia world in 3
>imagine what they could do with marketing if they were in game
The same thing they do with the other Disney franchises. Just retell one of the movies, throw in some heartless, and call it a world.
Another thing, where does Yen Sid go during the entirety of 2? You finish up talking with him at the tower and then POOF he disappears in a flash of light. What the fuck was that about
Nigga that shit was so bad even Japan wanted the dub.
Repliku isn't like who
He was his own person and was a fully-functioning clone of Riku who was in no way part of an experiment to keep Sora asleep. Vexen basically made him for shits and giggles.
Hell he hated the real Riku for being what he saw as weak and scared. Then Larxene had Namine rewrite his brain and all he became was not-Riku.
Basically this >>323951868
>Yen Sid as just a wise, powerful magician
-Doesn't have specific advice to offer Sora regarding the keyblade and how to use it
-Has some awareness of Ansem SoD and Xemnas, possibly even Xehanort, but as it's all hearsay and conjecture he's not sure and has little reason to pass on this knowledge regardless
-Makes sense that he would just stay in his tower because he's still a regular guy despite having access to some higher knowledge, reminiscent of figures like Triton in the original game
>Yen Sid as a keyblade master
-Has specific, potentially life-saving/world-changing knowledge and expertise that he deliberately hides from Sora until it's convenient to the plot(when he administers the Mastery Exam)
-Knows all about Xehanort and Terra/Aqua/Ventus, yet never tries to follow up when Aqua mysteriously disappears. Also either never suspects that "Ansem"/Xemnas are related to Xehanort or again deliberately withholds crucial information from Sora
-Has the ability and motive to travel between worlds to at least investigate or even contact Sora or, hello, MICKEY, before all the shit hit the fan. Even if he's some frail old guy whose bones are practically dust(which he's implied not to be) the whole story could've changed if he'd just been at a few key locations.
i saw this shit on cnn of all places. this game was heavily marketed which gives validity to my theory that it only sold nd was held in such nostalgia because of the marketing budget.
Simple and Clean > Passion > Sanctuary > Hikari E.
>How do you program and reprogram a clone's brain?
In this case, he was reprogrammed thanks to sorcery. Before that he wasn't anything like Riku, which meant he was a clone only in terms of biology.
>He seems much more akin to a replica
Well no shit, his name is Replica Riku
>Beats the shit out of innocent Nobodies with a massive key
I pretty much stopped trying to understand the plot around the part of KH1 where you stop doing disney stuff. Shit makes no sense and 2 only made me even more glad I didn't care.
Alright, so as a teen I had only played 1,2,
Now I went back and replayed 1,2 in the HD collection and Chain of Memories and I have a boatload of questions
1. What do I next? I can either start BBS, watch 358/2 days or ReCoded, or pirate either of those (However I heard they are both shit).
2. I am also going to work on 100%ing KH2 (I just got my endgame save, still need to grind drives/synthesis/Absent Silhouettes/whatever is hidden in Hollow Bastion).
3, Which Twilight Town was the fake one?
What the fuck was that room of reflection inside Castle Oblivion (or The Castle that Never Was) that Xemnas went into. They only reference it once.
I feel confused as fuck. If it werent for the post credits scene with the Letter I would swear up and down KH2 was supposed to be the end of the timeline. The only villains left are Maleficent & Pete (who seem like a non-treat if they even survived the Heartless onslaught/castles destruction) and Xehanort if he is alive.
Here's my understanding of things
>Sora defeats his friend who became evil and also an adult and created an evil version of the island you started the game on at the end of the universe
>He also becomes huge and fuses with a magic demon spaceship of sorts but you kill him and the regular island came back but only Kairi goes back not Sora, he goes to look for Mickey who he just saw get locked inside whatever Kingdom Hearts is along with the guy you just killed who is no longer an adult or gigantic or evil
>2nd game opens playing as someone who looks like Sora but isn't and there is an evil organization of guys in cloaks who are supposedly evil but they don't really do much
>Maleficent isn't dead I guess
>Sora is dead but you do something to bring him back to life and he goes about his adventures through Disney universes like nothing ever happened
>IDK lol I got bored and didn't finish the second game
how is this shit supposed to be easy to follow
1. get watching Days and ReCoded out of the way, I didn't like either of those game's gameplay
2. Good luck
3. The one Roxas had a fake life in
4. I'm guessing that will be covered in 3.
Is there a world that can even COMPARE to Traverse Town in comfiness?
You're thinking too hard.
>darkness came from the evil in people's hearts, the light was lost
>Sora is a kid who is granted possession of a weapon because its true wielder fell to darkness
>he saves his friend and defeats the evil that was possessing him
>they all get separated
>Sora loses his memories inside a castle, goes into a sleep for a year
>the Nobody of Sora tries to figure out who is he before he ends up absorbed back into Sora
>Maleficent comes back because people remember she existed, which is typical of oldschool magic
>Sora is told to go stop the Nobody leaders because they're fucking u[ the worlds
How much harder can it be? I'm already at 77% Journal Completion. I figure the hardest part will be the Coliseum because I fucking despise time attack nonsense, especially when the boss keeps flipping his only weak point away from you and then you fail on him 3 times in a fucking row FUCK YOU CERBERUS YOU COCKSUCKER
Only BbS and DDD are necessary to have a grasp on what's going to happen in III. X is also apparently going to be a big deal, so I guess get II.8 if you want to, but I'm guessing a lot of that stuff will be revealed through III anyway, kind of like how you could almost piece together CoM when playing II.
As for gameplay, BbS added a whole bunch of cool yet horrifically overpowered abilities, so if you preferred II's combat, you likely won't like BbS.
4 is the Chamber of Repose. It's holding Aqua's armor due to the fact that Xemnas has some of Terra's memories.
Fine. From the Ansem Reports
>Where does the body go when it seperates from the heart? If the soul remains within the body, is it still considered to be deceased?
>When the heart returns to the Heartless, the physical form disappears. But that is merely true in this world. Perhaps the body exists in another form in another world.
>If that is the case, then it is possible for one to exist in two worlds.
>A being that is neither darkness nor light; belonging nowhere; abandoned by its heart; a mere shell of its former self.
>The relation between the heart and the body is complex. However, I am certain that if your self exists here, then by definition the other cannot truly "exist." The other, the one which does not exist, shall be dubbed,
Yeah its 2.5. I know that I have to do the Absent Sillohettes yet, but if there are any more I don't know about them.
Yeah thats what I meant. She is in the data one until Axel comes for here, and she escapes and "appears through the wall". That is also why the computer under the mansion isn't all smashed up until you enter the teleporter.
>He doesn't know about Lingering Will
You ARE playing on critical, right?
It honestly sounds like he has a chip on his shoulder because of what happened between him and his apprentices. I think at some point he even admits he's been an ass about the whole thing.
Let us pray for his asshole. Terra shall have no mercy.
I thought the KH2 reports were written a little after? I know the ones in KH1 except for the first one weren't written by him.
i wanted to give you an answer, but i realized that i have no ffucking clue what it was. is it like samsara where all the hearts gather and reincarnate? is it some domain o rthe ultimate power and why is xehanort so obsessed with it what does he want to do with it? i played all games, but i cant think of anything.
No you can fight him on proud too, but to 100% the game you need to beat it on critical anyway
Don't feel bad, just consider everything you're doing right now a practice run. Which is fine, because you'll need it
No, she went to the real TT where she met the trio, then Axel came and kidnapped her.
The computer isn't smashed because Roxas smashed the data TT computer, not the real one.
Why would she go to data Twilight Town anyway?
You'll have to find all the absent silhouettes, then go through the gauntlet that is the Cavern of Remembrance (Hope you've been leveling up those drive forms), and then you'll come to a place where you can fight them all all you want.
>Wait, since when?
Didn't he? I mean that makes sense because all the odd ones are written by someone that actually sounds like Ansem while the even-numbered ones were written by a mad scientist.
You're walking through the club and this fucker Ultima Cannons your girlfriend's ass, what do you do?
Is KHfag here yet?
No, Ansem the Wise says he only wrote the original first report and maybe the second one in KH1. The other ones in KH1/KH1:FM were written by Xehanort's heartless/Ansem, SoD. The Secret Ansem Reports in KH2 are all Ansem the Wise. Where did you get that idea?
I thought the light was all of the disappeared worlds being let out of the realm of darkness, which amounted to a whole lot of hearts
I think Kingdom Hearts is just what they call it when a bunch of hearts group together at high density, but it holds different significance to different groups of characters
Mountain in Mulan for Master
Peddler's in Agrabah for Wisdom
Mansion in Twilight Town for Final
Anywhere for the other 2, they're easy to max
Don't forget to leave the world while still in a form so that you can reenter at max drive gauge
Anyone else like the story and presentation of KH1 more than any of the other games? Also the sense of adventure feels better in it. It's not nostalgia either because I played KH1 and KH2 at around the same time and actually beat KH2 before KH1.
Spam the most broken move in all of Kingdom Hearts.
>It's a jrpg with Disney characters
Wow, that actually sounds pretty n-
>and Final Fantasy characters
No enemy gives me as much PTSD as this fucker
>non-completionist fags will never know true tedium
Nevermind, I forgot this fucker >>323960047 along with Spellican.
>most KH games have ridiculously intense superbosses that seem to be attacking nonstop
>Days's superboss is just a big recolored generic Heartless that sits in place while you run in, hit a combo, and run away over and over again
Dodge the first charge, Thunder his ass when he winds up for the second charge, either dodge or block/reflect it, Thunder again then go for a 3 hit+finisher keyblade combo.
All this tells me is that none of you have done the LV1 Critical mode challenge.
Yes, PSP version even, they added some bullshit damage bonus to the PS3 version when you use Exp 0, the thing works even if you´re level 99.
Only with Aqua though, Poison, Burn, Sleep, Mini and Magnega are your best friends here.
Anyone else find Marluxia really underwhelming as a final boss?
Tell me what this man is guilty of
Aside from dropping some hot licks
We all agree he's the best character in the entire series right? How can you not like him?
Same here, except i just dodge rolled the shit out of everything, i legitimately never blocked in all of my playthroughs, reflect wasnt used either despite being the most broken shit even, if i needed i-frames i used the few that changing into limit form grants you, useful since the "explosion" also pushes back, stuns and damages enemies, this was mostly for xigbar
Hell no, he is an annoying faggot with a shitty voice, and a legit faggot as well, fuck him
Oh right, now I remember. I guess he's gonna be useful now that you need glide for Puzzles and don't want to grind the shit out of Final form.
Guard would have been useful if it always stuns parried enemies but nope, so you might as well just clash your weapon or avoid.
>Saying ANYTHING negative towards Quinton Flynn
You can fuck yourself faggot ass nigga
>mfw I just played the MGS games last month and I couldn't stop thinking about how Raiden was Axel
I'm not even surprised faggots hate Raiden, he's literally better than Big Boss
So apparently Jim Cummings revealed that he is done with his voice work for Kingdom Hearts 3. Could it be possible we can get an early 2017 release date?
So it's another Bill Farmer fuck up? Do not tell the voice actors what game they are recording for?
So what are the chances that Leonard Nemoy finished his lines?
I heard that's the case sometimes. As for if he's confusing the titles, we don't know. KH3 doesn't seem that far along yet to have VA outside of trailers while we know that 2.8 is schedule for a releae this year, at least in Japan.
Like 0. Quinton Flynn had said last year that he hadn't recorded anything at the time he was asked and I'm pretty sure that was after Nimoy died.
0 % chance anon. Game is still to early in development for voice acting to begin
>tfw Nomura waited too long and now both English and Japanese Master Xehanort are both dead and won't be in KH 3
It's all your fault Nomura
You have to remember that the FF7R will probably have something come out in 2017 too because of muh anniversary. I'm still hoping that 2.8 comes out in May, FFXV in August, and KH3 by March 2017
Nomura said back in 2008 that he wants to release one KH game per year and so far, he has kept his word
2009 - 358/2 Days
2010 - Birth by Sleep
2011 - Re:Coded
2012 - Dream Drop Distance
2013 - 1.5 HD Remix
2014 - 2.5 HD Remix
2015 - Unchained X (Counts as the 2015 since it released in Japan)
2016 - 2.8
KH 3 should be here in 2017.
He can get away with not releasing it at all, look at the past decade waiting for FFXV
Because his games are fun and he gets a free pass. You can get away with a lot of shit in gaming if your games are fun
FFXV's development was a clusterfuck in general. It sounds like they were having Nomura do too many things at the same time and then FFXIV happened.
>end of the series
>KH3 being the end of the series
Summons are more useful early game, where Chicken Little basically wins you fights just by having him out (like the Timeless River fights) or Stitch and Magnet + Thunder/Finishing Leap spamming before infinite ethers.
It will have top tier combat but their characters and plot will suck, tri-ace can´t write for shit, their 3D models are also bad except for the asses and breasts of the characters, they look like porcelain dolls.
>I mean, it will be, right??!?!?!?
Kingdom Hearts and all light in the universe is artificial it's created through the hopes of people
Not in the psp version, the only reason spellweaver finisher spam works is because the exp 0 ability in the ps3 port grants a hidden damage bonus to finishers, it was like a 500% boost iirc
Nomura doesn't consider Unchained χ to be a separate game from χ[chi], which launched in 2013.
So 2015 is kind of sort of missing a game but not really
When that interview happened I started hoping for 2.8 in 2015, thanks Nomura
Xehanort wants to open KH in order to rebalance the universe as he feels it's currently too much in the favor of light.
>INB4 that one dumbass who didn't read the Xehanort reports
When a person's Nobody and Heartless are defeated the original person comes back. Lorewise this should be Terra-Xehanort but he's currently MIA. Nomura likes to be cryptic when it comes to Terra.
nevermind forgot this faggot exists
No, considering that's the title.
Same reason I always use a lowercase C for coded and Re:coded.
I have χ[chi] in my bookmarks so it's not hard to type it anyway.
Ansem, Seeker of Darkness believed that darkness was the heart's true essence.
That Kingdom Hearts was darkness.
Xehanort uses darkness because he believes there is a "tyranny of light" which needs to be corrected. His Reports suggest that he'll use Kingdom Hearts to recreate the World.
The black coat is magic, it hides the wearer's presence and (if they have one) protects their heart from darkness.
This is why DiZ gives them to Riku and Mickey at the end of Reverse/Rebirth.
They don't really need it. It actually has a lore reason as said >>323968502 here. The gummi ship protects from the darkness when the go from world to world and they're not really using Corridors of Darkness. TAV's keyblade armor has the same function for when they traverse the Lanes Between.
and the 2016 Academy Award for Best Picture goes to...
You'll be fine with it if you dont pay attention to the story. If you're interested in the story I'd say get 1.5 and 2.5, they're the best way to get into the series right now.
Or you can look up a summary video on YouTube if you're lazy.
Anyone kind enough to explain about Pure Blood Heartless? They're not hearts of people hence they don't release hearts.
They also don't adapt to their environment. So how did they come into existence to trouble everyone?
Not everyone who dies loses their heart to darkness. Some return to Kingdom Hearts, while some just fade away. The Emblem Heartless are a creation of Xehanort through his experiments. Normally, pure blood heartless were very rare, and were almost always the product of someone willingly giving their heart to darkness, or having a heart so dark that it was swallowed by darkness. Xehanort wanted to be able to created Heartless out of anyone, regardless of the state of their heart. The Emblem Heartless are created for that purpose. They have the ability to pull the heart from anyone with a weak will, and immediately turn that heart into an Emblem like itself. Think of the Emblems as a virus. The sole purpose of the Emblems is to infect and multiply. However, since the hearts are forceably extracted, they still retain some sense of self. And when they are released, they either seek out other hearts in similar situations (thus forming a form of Kingdom Hearts in KH2), or sometimes they can find their way back to their bodies and become whole again.
The Pure Blood Heartless however, being that it is created voluntarily (not forcefully like the Emblems), once released, cannot do anything without the help of another heart. Since in order for a Pure Blood Heartless to be born, the heart either has to get to such a state that it no longer has the ability to contain the darkness within it's original body, or it has to be given up willingly (which seems to have the same result). Take these two examples. When Sora willingly released his heart to free Kairi's, he became a Pure Blood heartless, and had he been destroyed, his heart would have gone to the realm of darkness (until his Nobody was destroyed, then he might have been able to pull himself together but this is doubtful). Even though he managed to retain his sense of self (only Xehanort had done this previously), he still needed the light of Kairi's Heart to regain his physical form. Now look at Xehanort, if you go by the Ansem Reports, he lost his heart while conducting experiments trying to create Pure and Emblem Heartless. However, this was after the True Xehanort had transfered his heart to Terra, and lost his memory. So in a way, his heart was still corrupted by darkness, even though he couldn't remember it.

I hate what DDD did to Traverse Town. Boring, big areas isn't what made the original KH good. It was the smaller, more intimate areas with hidden crevices and pathways that made the first KH so memorable.
What is Kingdom Hearts?
It means a lot of things to a lot of kids who played it, I think.
Let's look at some of the motifs. Stars. Light. Keys. Hearts. Flight. Belief. Locks. Laughter.
I keep thinking about Sora's obnoxiously huge clean teeth, too. And his goofy clown shoes.
If you remove all the other intellectual properties, it's pretty standard JRPG fare, I s'pose.
It's a story about Kairi, Riku and Sora coming of age and needing to leave the safety of Destiny Islands.
Calling out to someone who can't hear you, or is shrouded in darkness. Reaching out to someone you can't reach. Underhanded, or overhanded.
Forgetting. Remembering. Light. Darkness.
Innocence. Pureness of heart. Courage.
Strength to protect those you love. Wisdom and kindness to go about it the right way.
Falling from the sky backwards. Turning upside-down and landing, gently, feet-first at the very bottom of the ocean.
Shitty tacked on space combat
Kiddy stuff I guess. I think maybe the door to darkness, to other worlds, is just a metaphor for growing up. And the real journey is trying to keep believing in the friends you had even though you see life changing them.
I dunno. I'm at Hollow Bastion for the second time and I don't really know where to go. Maybe I'll finish some day soon.
P.S. Hollow Bastion is a pretty clever metaphor. Like an empty, jutting chest cavity.
Like a place where a heart should be, but isn't.
I feel like you took this from a youtube comment
>MFW Zootipia and that Hawaiian princess movie might get in since the development team gets to view movies before they're released.
>MFW Zootopia could possibly be announced around the movie's release.
I remember when this shit played literally every commercial break on Nickelodeon for weeks. I was and still am completely baffled at that. Never in my life have I seen a video game marketed that aggressively.
I do want The Princess and The Frog though. Only world I REEEEEEAAAAAAALLLLLLLY want unless Nomura actually tries to emulate The Emperor's New Groove's humor for it's world.
I was talking about Moana, not Princess & Frog. Moana looks shitty. Just plain old shitty and even the character designs suck. At least Gigantic hired the Tangled character designers so it looks better.
Yeah. It's just you said you didn't want a Token Princess movie, while PATF was an actually great movie despite shit like "Hurr niggress princess" "Hurr she turns into a frog for most of the movie".
I swear whenever I see that movie's "making-of" I fucking cry at how much effort was put into it but now Disney is another company trying to ride Dreamworks cock while making only mediocre "classic" fairy tale movies that are set to ruin KH3 even more.
