Mushroom Kingdom Hearts

edited March 2007 in Games and Technology
So, I'm reading the latest EGM I beleive and they have a very short panel about something quite interesting. Supposedly, SquareEnix and Disney have allowed Nintendo into the mix. Sora and friends are going to be visiting Mario and all the Nintendo characters in the next installment of Kingdom Hearts, being released exclusivly on the Wii (no shock there with this bit of information).

I personally think it will be cool to have the Nintendo characters joining the fray, and that is saying a lot coming from me. I am known by my friends to get sick of Nintendo throwing the same characters in every game they make (all the Mario sports titles for one, Smash Brothers for another) but this time it might actually work. What is everyones opinion on this?

    April Fools or not, the concept is awesome, and what I was getting at more or less. Granted on a reread, it did sound more noobish than I had originally thought. All flames on that accepted.

    I would buy it if it was real.

    I dont see why it is a ludicrous idea that it could be real.

    If this story came out in May I would believe it 100%.

    I mean shit, it is the perfect match up.

    Agreed. When my roommate mentioned the article, my first thought was "what month is it?" and realized it was april, and sad. Maybe Square will read the article and like the idea. lol yeah right.

    My personal favorite was Blizzard announcing adding Panderans to WoW. I knew it was a gag, but damn if I didn't want it to be true.

    Wind Waker with realistic graphics as a TP pre-order bonus.

    GameSpot had a few good articles.. A couple were about a kid killing turtles after playing Super Mario Bros. and another was about a remake of the Metal Gear Solid remake.

    I'm still trying to get Sheng Long in Street Fighter 2.

    The funny thing is, over the years, Ken has been getting more and more like the pics and description of Sheng Long, complete with ponytail and flaming Shoryuken.

    As I said in the last April Fools Thread, the funniest April Fools jokes I've seen are probably the Homestar Runner ones and Pandaren Express.

    I don't understand people who hate April Fool's with a passion. Do you hate fun?

    It's interesting to see the various creative ideas people came up with; I loved the fake "The More You Know" ads on NBC last year.

    I don't hate April Fool's in general, but I certainly hate internet/gaming news outlets. There's a difference between a funny prank (those NBC promos) and just spouting crap for the sake of laughing at the saps who buy it (SONIC IN SSBM OMG).

    That said, I desperately want Mushroom Kingdom Hearts to be real. I guess that's part of what I hate too; there's always one "prank" that I end up really liking, and I know it'll never actually happen.

    Dear Gaming Magazines,

    Contrary to popular belief, April Fool's Day, does in fact occur in April. I don't care if your publication is on a one or two month production schedule. Moreover, all this does is cock up your supposed gags because the vocal minority of subscribers are too daft to realize that perhaps "SUPER COOL FAKE PROJECT" is a prank. If you're going to April Fool's someone, try using your goddamn website on April 1st and not on paper in the middle of March. Fuckwads.

    if Wii becomes much more popular than Playstation 3 in Japan, then Kingdom Hearts 3 might make the jump to Nintendo, but it would be the standard Square Enix and Disney characters.

    I thought the Wii was more popular than the PS3 in Japan. I could very well be wrong, just thought I read that somewhere.

    It probably is.

    I remember reading an interview with Tetsuya Nomura where he said that they were going to put Kingdom Hearts on the Gamecube, but the Playstation 2 had a larger marketshare, and they wanted it on the most popular console.
