Though I think he did say it would appear in a trailer, and this is a demo. But that would be great either way.

 

A little sad that this (might) mean Wreck it Ralph might not get a full world but this is pretty great either way. I think it would have worked really well to. But I do like that links/summons are not only characters you have met before because it's a good way to include characters that don't have a world. I guess Sora is just that good that he makes connections to people he has not met yet.  :smile:

This could mean that Wreck it Ralph will be the new world in Union Cross.

wreck it ralph world in kh3? Do you mean a world in unchained x? 

I'm not sure if that is confirmed but I think it will be a world in KH3.

There were leaked images before with Sora before a poster of fix-it.

 

Edit= Oh wait that belongs with the summon. Hm but it still could appear in KH3 we don't know for sure yet.

Just saw a few gameplay videos and I have some things to say about the game.

 

Keyblade Transformations seem to work similarly to BBS command styles.The variety of attacks you can pull off looks fun, but I fear that Sora might be too OP here, compared to previous games. Obtaining special attacks seems remarkably simple and effortless, which might make the game easier than it should be. That, and some sections look as if they're on autopilot or automated, which IMO doesn't seem all that great.

 

Combat looks to be the same fast-paced, flashy fun I've come to love but with a number of refinements and additions, and I'm happy that the areas seem to be really big and with hopefully some level of platforming.  Graphics still look amazing, and english translations are nice (Though, I'm puzzled over the reused voice clips for Sora).
