    That is super awesome to hear!

    Hopefully this sends the message to Square that they can still make games like this that don't rely on a "games as a service" model or piles of DLC.

    They're probably mainly thinking about how much more money they can make if they make KH3 into a game as a service with piles of DLC

    it's not possible to be too cynical when it comes to Square

    honestly I'd be very okay with this game getting the FF15 treatment

    how about a DLC episode where you play as Squall and see what the Radiant Garden crew were up to, and that's where you get your Sephiroth fight

    HSSSSSS!

    But I am legit happy(and I hope it stays true) that Nomura said there would be no DLC stuff like that outside of *maybe* a Final Mix somewhere down the line.

    1v1 multiplayer mode where you play as Kairi and Lea in their training forest

    It makes about as much sense as FF15 getting 4-player online!

    Today's story update for KHUX finally left "revisit the Disney worlds for no reason" limbo we'd been stuck in for months and had a huge scene between Maleficent and some cloaked figure who asked to be called "Darkness." They discussed time travel and Maleficent's role in the entire series and all kinds of stuff. I was floored.

    My personal theory is extremely stupid but I am sticking with it
    It's a corrupted version of Jiminy's journal in KH3, a Super Data Riku.

    The fact that the game went from "all the Disney princesses are uh 'dancing' with their BF's. Good job!" for months to "Hey Maleficent, remember when that boy stabbed you (complete with KH1 render of when that happened) and then you time traveled to try to change your fate, but you haven't had much success? Well, I'm 'Darkness' and here's a secret for you to learn..." is so incredibly KH, it hurts.

    I just remembered that 358/2 Days allows you to fight with Actual Pizzas when you're playing as Axel so I've decided it's actually the best one.

    That's from a few weeks ago yea?

    Nomura said something along the lines of "there are not any big DLC plans as he wants to move on to his next game other than some small free stuff and then maybe somewhere down the line a final mix version but that is it"

    And like... good. Keep it that way please good sir.

    Okay, so I finished reading the Sleeping Realm theory and maybe I missed something important, but I don't really know...what the purpose of this theory even is?
    So, like, the main point that the many pages of supporting evidence is trying to prop up is that Sora travels through time not once but twice. We don't actually see the first time he does it, because that's in the first try of KH3 that ends terribly, and he ends up starting over by going to a separate worldline where the prophecy of their fall doesn't exist. Then the second time is the one that we see directly following Sora saving everybody's hearts and depositing them all back in the KBG.

    But, like, what does that solve, exactly? Most of the stuff that gets brought up as being "explained" by the theory either aren't that important or can be far more easily explained some other way (like only Goofy hearing Yenside say the guiding key line being a gag). And the actual big questions that remain unanswered (what was everyone looking at in the ending?) still remain unanswered.

    Also, treating worldline travel the same as dropping into the Sleeping World seems wrong from what I recall? Like, the surviving cast of Union X are explicitly mentioned as having hopped worldines twice, and one of those worldlines is the same one that KH1 takes place in. So if hopping worldlines causes you to enter a Sleeping World, then the entirely of the story since KH1 (hell, since BBS) has already been in the Sleeping Realm, which makes no goddamn sense. And if it's not the same, then why in the world does the theory spend so much time trying to prove that KH3 as we played it takes place in the Sleeping Realm?

    I just do not comprehend why this theory exists.

    also, Sora jumping to a world where the prophecy doesn’t exist makes no sense. The Chi characters helping out is framed like Eraqus’s answer to Xehanort referencing the prophecy in their chess game. And Eraqus references that same exchange after Sora beats Xehanort. The prophecy not existing means that whole discussion doesn’t happen in the first place. That idea just doesn’t work. .

    Maybe this is a hot take but if you write a 350 page fan theory for a game you 1)should probably take a step back and chill and 2) probably lost the plot and started huffing your own farts somewhere around page 20.

    I'm working through the series and like

    someone, is hte Riku route for Re: Chain of Memories shorter than the Sora Route?

    like I have gotten used to the card battle system but oh god moving this to "Kingdom Hearts, but now you can run out of the ability to meaningfully fight, also we put bosses sometimes entirely out of the reach of your attacks" is kind of... [high pitched distressed sounds]

    The amount of levels are the same, but there isn’t the story in each world that Sora’s path has, which makes it a bit shorter.

    The other tip I’d say from when I last played it is to not make as many combos unless absolutely necessary. There are enough 0s in Riku’s deck that you should use those to break large attacks, and just take your time with the fights.

    Also I am amused at the fact that all of these worlds are, as I thought the start of the game explained it, Sora's memories...
