New Kingdom Hearts III trailer shown at E3 2015, Tangled world announced, Sora's new look shown, & gameplay revealed

Recommended Posts

OK, after seeing the new trailers over and over, I have some comments to do. Some of them are already been done by other members, but I doubt some others too.  + "The Lost Masters who initiated the Keyblade War": Like other people, I'm convinced they are talking about the Foretellers of "Kingdom Hearts Unchained X". The moment I saw the designs of their Keyblades, I noticed they have the same "Eye of Darkness" that Master Xehanort's keyblade and other weapons tied to the darkness. That clearly accuse them as being actually working for the side of Darkness. In fact, Isuspect maybe these five characters could also be members of Master Xehanort's true Organization XIII. + "Of his apprentices, he bestowed names on six, and granted the Book of Prophecies to five": That means the Five Foretellers, but it also means there is a sixth member in their group; and I suspect that could be actually the mysterious "Unknown" with the Black Coat. Iwouldn't be surprise if he's actually the one moving the threads in all this. + "There IS a traitor among the five?": I would say ALL of them are traitors. Like I said, the Eye of Darkness in their Keyblades reveal their true nature. Also, why all of them wear masks? Unless they are trying to hide something, like Xehanort's yellow eyes in all of them!!!  + Young Xehanort and Young Eraqus: Maybe it's just me, but haven't you noticed that by their faces, Xehanort and Eraqus look like pretty much like Sora and Riku? + "The Chess Pieces": Like most of all, I also suspect that the pieces of Chess are representing the main players of the final confrontation. I recognize the pieces that most of people, like Sora (crown), Mickey (his head and ears), Kairi (a star), Vanitas (his symbol)... etc. The ending of the game at the end of the trailer, apparently ending as stalemate, clearly proves that everything will be decided in a final battle between the "leaders" of both sides. It will be Sora (from the side of Light) and Master Xehanort (from the side of Darkness). + "Olympus": I have to say, the new graphics for battle look awesome overload!! I would say that the scenes in this world show Sora climbing to Mount Olympus itself, just when the Titans are attacking it. I have to say, some zones look like much more to Phil's training field in his island that anything else. + "Tangled": I have to admit, I didn't expect this world to appear here. I wonder what surprises could have prepared for us. + "The Attractions": I have to admit, they are really funny and awesome! But I wonder where this power comes from in the first place. We have Big Mountain Railroad, Pirate Ship and the Tea Cups; all mixed with the Electrical Mayhem Parade.  + "Sora's new look": It surprises me to see Sora with two different looks. If you ask me, I would say that I prefer the Kingdom Hearts II's outfit. I have nothing against the new clothes, but I don't like his new hairstyle. I recently noticed that it has some similarities with the haitstyle of both Roxas and Ventus. Do you think maybe there's a relation around here? + "Keyblade's transformations": This is another very cool power. + "Twilight Town": Just in case you didn't noticed, before it's transformed into a carriage pull by a duplicate of Pegasus, Sora's Keyblade turns into somekind of bow. And in case you didn't notice it, you can see the image of Zeus in its potential "arrow", with a thunderbolt on his hand.  1º) "Chess board": There is something that apparently nobody has realized. In that game, it clearly proves that each side of the board has space for 13 pieces. Well, we already know that the Darkness side has a whole new "Organization XIII" with 13 members. But what you should have noticed is that the side of Light also has 13 pieces!!! This means that there won't be a battle between 13 Darkness vs 7 Lights, but 13 Darkness vs 13 Lights!!! With this, you should question who will be the players of each side: + "Organization XIII": It's clear that they are the players in the Dark side. We already know 6 members of this new group from "KH:3D". They have Master Xehanort, Ansem Seeker of Darkness, Young Xehanort, Xenmas, Saix and Xigbar. Now, who could be the other 7? Well, the Foretellers can clearly be 5 of them somehow. The sixth member of their group could be another one, but I suspect that could be Young Xehanort too somehow. Vanitas will clearly be another one. And in case the KH-X's Unknown is not Young Xehanort, I have no more ideas. + "7 Lights": It's clear for me who are the members of this group. The heroes from the past restored (Terra, Aqua and Ventus), the heroes from the present/future (Sora, Riku and Kairi) and the hero who connects both past and future (Mickey). Now, about the others lights to make them 13? Kairi is both a princess and a heroine of Light, I suspect the other six Princesses of Heart (Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Belle, Jasmine and Alice) will give their power to another six heroes to fight. Who would be them? I suspect they will be other Keyblade Weilders connected to all this. The broken trio (Axel, Roxas and Xion) and even the "copies" (Data-Sora, Replica-Riku and Namine).  Well, what do you think of this?

Please no. Xehanort is a good villain. It would really make him lame if he was just another puppet.

Not sure if this has been brought up or not, but after reading through all of this new information, that "kingdom shading" thing that they talked about awhile back wasn't mentioned. Was it included in the new trailer?

Seriously guys, Sora new look is terrible

It seems plastic, very computer looking, the models 'didn't' change, only the texture, what I mean is that they changed sora model but only the hair and clothes, other than that nothing's changed.. Their eyes should transmit life, but is only a texture

 

And the luminous engine was a better choice, the pavement in Olympus coliseum is only painted and does not look grass at all

 

Tangled world is beautiful and seems alive, at least there's wind blowing

 

I would like to see birds flying anyway

Did you saw him with golden buttons? I'm not sure if they are meant to be in the trailer.

But with that looks it alot better.

As usual, I'm late to the comment party.  I think I've been spending too much time in the Realm of Darkness  :ph34r:  Anyway, I was stunned by the trailer and the footage.  I'm just glad there has been confirmation of the footage being actual gameplay, unlike the E3 2013 trailer, which was all just a representation of what Square wanted the game to look like.

 

My thoughts:

 

- The Keyblade transformations look awesome, definitely looking forward to seeing more of those.

- I'm really digging Sora's new outfit, as it reminds me a bit of what a Samurai would wear, particularly the plates covering the sides of his legs.  This outfit just seems more mature, as it symbolizes Sora's growth as a protagonist.

- The graphics and art style look fantastic so far, and this is still an early build!

- I couldn't help but smile when I heard "Rage Awakened" play when the action started!

- I have yet to see "Tangled", though I've heard great things about the movie.  I will probably check it out at some point.

- Since Rock Titan appears to be back, does this mean we will be going back to Olympus Coliseum, or maybe explore a different location from Hercules' world?

Your reaction to this is the most analytical out of all of the responses I've seen so far. I completely agree with you with the true agenda and contribution for the Foretellers in the kingdom Hearts series. Speaking of which:

I normally don't have a problem with better graphics, but when i looked at the Hercules world, i got worried. Despite it looking great, the point should be that we feel like we're in the "Hercules" film. Birth by Sleep came really close but didn't expand on the city. Now we get to see more, but that land seems to be far more vast than necessary. 

 

I understand also that some additions were added in for the sake of making the game more immersive an fun, but i still think they missed the point. For example: because of all these high-poly, extra shadow, and extra details. Sora, and his keyblade look like plastic. they have the right amount of shadow, but he doesn't naturally blend in 100%. 

 

I think the look that was shown in the original teaser looked better. It had that shaded look that can fit into any world.

The thing you have to remember is the game is in the middle of active development.

 

- "This trailer represents a game currently in development."

 

Things are subject to change still at this point and I feel like the 'plastic' look that you mention is due to the look of the models and world not being final yet. Also in terms of your troubles with the vastness of the world, they are setting this Hercules world on Mount Olympus which is a pretty huge place with lots of verticality and height which is showcased well in the trailer. 

 

I got the plastic look feeling too as well from the in game cutscene at the beginning and the end of the trailer but this is still all work in progress and I wouldn't worry too much about how the game looks when it is more than a year out. We haven't even seen any decent chunk of the story yet too which is what I am more concerned about at this point.

i doubt that the graphics aren't set in stone. however i'm still worried about it. And clarifying that it is Mount Olympus doesn't really help me if they completely re-invented it from the film. I'm concerned about faithfulness.
