Looks like something did happen to Aqua after KH BBS

 

I always speculated this but didn't think that Mickey met Aqua in between BBS and  KH1. Maybe she helped him find the Kingdom Key D something happen then was left in the ROD still. Maybe she helped him find Kingdom Hearts then took separate paths or she could not go with him for some reason.  

 

Looks they caught my interest even more now

So Mickey has known about Aqua and what she went through in the RoD? This definitely thickens the plot.

Yes it was implied at the end of Re:CodedMickey: "Master Yen Sid, I think we're finally close to figuring out where Ven's heart is"Yen Sid: "Is that so? Then that leaves only Terra"Mickey: "Right, and we gotta save all three of 'em!"This implies that they've known Aqua's whereabouts for a while (Probably since Mickey's road trip through the RoD to find the Kingdom Key D in the first KH) but where unable to bring her back.

I feel that a Fragmentary Passage will have stuff from the past and present, in that we play as Aqua right after the events of the Secret Episode in Birth by Sleep Final Mix and then move back to the present every now and then for Mickey to tell Sora and most likely Riku and Kairi as well those secrets that he has been hiding.  I wonder if he will also tell them about Vens heart since they might know that it's inside Sora now or maybe no yet.

KINGDOM HEARTS 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage –

[...]Immediately after KH3D, as Sora prepares for the final battle, the King confesses a lot of things that were kept secret. It is the subsequent story of one person named Aqua left behind in the Realm of Darkness that is finally told.

 

 

Does this basically confirm Connected's theory? I think so!!!

Awwww yiiiiiss, the return of Dream-Eater-Amie in glorious HD! 0/*

 

Though I do wonder how they're going to handle the games since they more or less relied on the 3DS's visual touchpad and gyroscope to be able to play the games.  :/

This is my main problem/worry regarding 3DHD.

I'm not entirely sure how the PS4 touchpad thing works, but I kinda doubt that it'd be able to function just like a 3DS Touch Screen. They've got Dream Eater interaction, Reality Shifts, and Link Portal stuff to take care of. And people will probably suggest that they do away with all that, but then it just wouldn't be the same.

Hopefully Squeenix sheds some light on this matter in the future.

Yeah, I've got the same worries of how they're going to make it work on the PS4. The Dualshock4 controllers may have the touchpad, but I don't know the whole actual touching the parts that need to be touched will work. Maybe they'll make use of the motion-sensing in the controllers, and have some sort of cursor-like indicator on the screen that can be moved with the controller. That could work since the interesting things were only ever happening on one screen in terms of the Dream Eater interaction and Reality Shifts. I always thought Dream Drop Distance would work perfectly for the Wii U since it's pretty much a large version of a 3DS, but I suppose they wanted to keep it in a compilation like 1.5 and 2.5, and because of BBS 0.2 it'd need to be on the PS4. 

 

Regarding Link Portals, I have no idea how they'll incorporate that since it relied on people using StreetPass and going outside. They could probably have so online kind of situation where people can upload the portals and they get randomly placed in the games. I suppose we'll just have to wait and see.  :)

I wonder if Mickey is talking about when he told Data-Sora that he was at Traverse Town; First District, right before Donald, Goofy, Jiminy, and Pluto showed up.

 

And it sounds like The Fragmentary Passage is told in a flashback told only to the player.
