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.


#3

The Crowned One has returned. Who is ready to be broken all over again?


#4

Hell fucking yeah.


#5

So goddamn hyped for this.


#6

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


#7

Posting in a legendary thread!


#8

subscribed. We might not see anymore of this game for like a year but at least we know it’s finally started. Nomura…you are to work on this game and FF XV…NOTHING ELSE.


#9

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.


#10

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.


#11

SPLOOOOOOOGE


#12

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…


#13

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.


#14

Maybe make a post 1 to get those initiated. Was going to post that timeline from Game trailers.


#15

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.


#16

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.


#17

I will indeed.


#18

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.


#19

In on first page

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


#20

Sooo…I DO need to get through 3D. I have it but been kinda slow to get through it.
