Kingdom Hearts III Revealed With An Epic Troll

Kingdom Hearts III Revealed With An Epic Troll

Square Enix wins the award for "most belabored reveal of E3"

Read Full Article

Don't forget the Chrono Trigger Tease that prove to just be a tease. I'm not sure If Square Enix is just loves messing with people, or if they're just run by completely incompetent morons.

The trailer was a tad too 'flashy.' I mean, it had way too many overtly elaborate special attack/summon animations and the like. Despite the fact that it was nearly all 'gameplay' there was very little genuine substance.

That aside, the expanded level design looks pretty enticing. Sora's new freedom of movement seems like it would gel really well with the combat; I just hope the wall running stuff isn't confined to certain sections of walls.

I also notice that the parkour system that they implemented in KH3D is returning. I didn't like it in 3D but that's nearly entirely because it was mapped to the same button as the dodge roll. Assuming they don't make that same mistake again, I think it's a good inclusion.

Can't wait to play this game in... let's see... Q4 2017? I'm calling it now.

I really need to play Birth By Sleep before this comes out, because I have no idea who the kid in white is. Eraqus? Never heard of him. There was a time when I knew the whole storyline in Kingdom Hearts, but it spread out over so many different spin-offs that I'm missing a lot of stuff now.

But anyway, bring it on! I bested you once, Earth Titan, and I am more than ready to do it again.

I'm a little sick of KH's story but I can't deny watching Sora, Donald and Goofy at it again got me psyched for the game.

Yeah, most of the Kingdom Hearts 'Spinoffs' are really more like direct sequels on a different console.

Considering the fact they made FF13 and thought " What this game really needs is two sequels" I'm gonna go with the latter. Also Balthiers Unite!! :)

The trailer look good, but its just seemed too...hectic? Like, even by Kingdom Hearts standards I was thinking a bit too much was happening all at once. Still, graphically it looks really good (just have to get used to it), and Tangled as a world is a nice addition.

Also can't wait to hear more about Unchained. It looked super easy to play, and having a mobile KH might not be the worst thing in the world. Even moreso since it seems to be delving into new plotlines they introduced in 2.5 HD ReMix.

As a huge disney fanatic, I am so damn excited. Tangled and Frozen worlds? Maybe Star Wars or Marvel?

It would blow my mind of both the Tangled and Frozen world(s) were truly linked together...

Other than that, I am kinda glad that Kingdom Hearts X is getting a NA release... unlike what happened to Coded...
*shutters multiple times in a row*

So the people at Square-Enix are a bunch of a-holes. Good to know. As much as I love Kingdom Hearts, I'm sick and tired of the story getting stretched out and becoming more complicated, just so the company can sell more games without getting to the last part. *SIGH*

You mean the fact in which that FF13-2 (and therefore allowed LR) was actually asked for by the fans?
http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Final_Fantasy_XIII-2#Development

Or the fact that 3.1 million people bought FF13-2 knowing what FF13-2 was (like they did with FF10-2)?
http://www.gamespot.com/articles/square-enix-profits-nearly-triple-due-to-deus-ex-ffxiii-2/1100-6349731/

Seriously, did you even try to look up the reason why that happened or did you just go with "Final Fantasy XIII gets sequels because cliche company want more money" thought process? It's not hard to look this up. Took me 5 minutes at most.

I was more taking a jab at 13 because I thought it sucked and didn't deserve to exist as a final fantasy game, much less spawn terrible sequels. Also, it looks like 13 was planned to be a series of 3 games anyway by Square as far back as 2005, regardless of what fans wanted. "Kitase: We made a decision that we were going to have a sole protagonist in the third installment of the Final Fantasy XIII franchise since the very beginning, six years ago, possibly 2005, 2006, something like that."

You are misquoting Kitase. He was talking about how the third game was only going to have a sole protaganist instead of a group like the other two.

Toriyama already stated several times that FF13 was not designed for sequels and that they were not a thing

Kitase said the same thing as Torriyama above

I love how the trailer ends with the sentiment "Shut up we're working on it"

If they really wanted to mess with people, that mobile game trailer would have been a gag trailer for a new Android/iOS title called "Kingdom Hearts All The Bravest". Show FFATB footage with the sprites palette-swapped for KH characters, and just when the crowd gets loud and rowdy, drop the curtain on KH3.

FPLOON:

OT: Was that Haley Joel Osment voicing young Eraqus? Interesting...

Word on the street (yo) is that voice is actually Drake Bell's (ala Nickelodeon's 'Drake and Josh') of all people. I haven't been able to confirm it though, and I'm not quite sure how people got that impression.

OT:
I don't understand this sentence about the FF7 bit:

Instead, we were shown the Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer first revealed during last night's Sony presentation, reminded that the PC version will be coming to PS4, and informed that the a port will also come to iOS.

What PC version are you talking about? Maybe there will be a PC version AFTER it is released on PS4 (Sony said, that FF7:Remake will be first available for PS4). And how the hell do they plan to put this on iOS? They ignore all graphic improvements or what?

I see how that's unclear. The previously released PC port of Final Fantasy VII is going to be ported again to PS4 and iOS. The FF7 Remake is coming to PS4, followed no doubt by other platforms. Sorry for the confusion. It was not a well-written sentence and I'll cop to that.

*re-watches trailer*
Them streets, yo... They might be up to something here... I can see it through young Eraqus's eyes... It makes me wants to hug him like a brother...
