    Literally the only non-fighting game that I ever took seriously. I remember even dedicating my AIM profile to Kingdom Hearts in middle school. I shamelessly don't regret it.

    If the gameplay stays that fluid it will be fantastic. Maybe eventually your sig will ring true also.

    Can't decide whether I'm excited or sad. As most of you might know, I haaaaate the direction the story took after the first game and scorn all the stupid hand held games (CoM excluded, that was awesome). Ugh. Who am I kidding. I will probably pick up a PS4 solely for this and Final Fantasy XV.
    Shin-Mech-Brian: As I walk through, I look up and see Chun-Li holding my son and she says, "arrest him!" Ronald McDonald pulls up from behind me and put me in handcuffs. I ask why I'm being arrested and he says, "I'm under arrest for killing Santa Clause."

    Welcome back to the family.

    And all ya'll hyped for this but haven't finished the rest of the games? I'd take this time to go and DO THAT. It's pretty fucking mandatory. Either go play them yourselves, or hit up Youtube if you're lazy. You're not getting into KH3 without the Handheld knowledge.

    And if you hate the Handheld games well, to quote @Starhammer and James Storm, SORRY About Your Damn Luck.

    The 2 hand held games that are the most mandatory are BBS and 3D. Lesser extent being CoM and even lesser 358/2. You don't really need to play Coded at all. 358/2 has one of the more saddest moments in the KH storyline though...
    High Enough

    Well if we get 1.5 Remix out here Days won't be AS mandatory thankfully. RE: Coded, feel free to watch the last 10 minutes on Youtube or something.

    CoM/BBS/3D are EXTREMELY Mandatory.

    Maybe make a post 1 to get those initiated. Was going to post that timeline from Game trailers.
  • SaitsuSaitsu No Longer Fantasy, This Is Reality Joined: Posts: 35,863
    Well feel free to post it.

    I'll also post the basic outline for how the timeline flows. But please post the GT Timeline video. Wish we could embed it though.

    The timeline is perfect but it spoils stuff for people who may be interested in playing those games. If you're gonna put it in the OP I'd make sure to put a warning about that.

    Christ. That timeline just depresses me. Such a jumbled mess of a story line that is in constant need of retconning to make all the crap dreamed up in new games fit.

    I loved KH2 (my favorite out of all the games) so I'm so excited for a sequel.

    Sora xSazh?

    Honestly if we get Sora x Noctis I won't be surprised. He is the reason for the delay. He should be the Sephiroth of 3. But still have Sephi of course.

    Well, there we go. PS4 is now a buy.

    So anyone think SE will go easy on us people who don't invest in handhelds and make the storyline cohesive enough with just the console titles that we'll figure it out?

    I think half the reason for the HD collections is so they can get the story all summed up in easy to digest locations. I mean fuck 358/2 days isn't even a game in KH 1.5 HD it's just cut scenes. I have a feeling they'll do the same to DDD for KHII 2.5 HD or whatever they decide to call it.

    It made sense to me. Maybe a few things would've made sense faster had I played the handheld, but I was fine with it. I loved the game, had a blast with it, and enjoyed a good story to boot.

    Man, I have a lot of catching up to do in an indeterminate, but probably short amount of time then. I don't even have a PSP or a 3DS.

    Days was bad enough to only warrant a movie. 2.5 should be FM+, BBSFM, and maybe a RE:3D all playable

    We'll see. Either way my point stands that for the most part they are collecting the whole story into easily digestible packages.

  • SaitsuSaitsu No Longer Fantasy, This Is Reality Joined: Posts: 35,863
    I knew it was 3.

    If you finished DDD, it made it obvious the second Riku started talking in the Trailer that it was talking about 3.
