    I really love Wish. I think it would be a great addition as a world in the Kingdom Hearts series. Plus, the concept of wishing could play a role in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts Second Saga.

    I recently faced this same problem with FF16, the new female character Jill was just as bland and boring (Edit: same for Tifa Lockhart tbh. her being a hot female character is what carries her in popularity, and not her mediocre character). Tbh i can tell if Aqua was a male, she wouldn’t be this popular. it’s very clear that she would be the least popular of the Wayfinder trio if she wasn’t a woman, which is kinda sad when you think about it. But then again, this is not exactly a new thing to begin with, it’s fairly common. so it’s really not surprising whatsoever. Anyhow, i guess both Aqua and Jill (Edit: and Tifa) are just fine overall? I don’t think they are good characters, but I don’t think they are bad characters either. I guess I can call them decent at best.

    Kingdom Hearts III was infamous for being one of the most long-awaited games of all time. Ever since seeing three armored individuals and the words "Keyblade War" on their screens during Kingdom Hearts II's secret ending in 2005, fans eagerly awaited the third entry. But while multiple side-stories were released in the meantime, it took over 12 years of waiting to obtain the "true" next chapter. And after years of rumors and false-hope, fans could finally experience the Keyblade War and the end of the Xehanort Saga. But was it worth the long wait? Well, visually the game was stunning, the gameplay was overall pretty fun (albeit a bit too easy), exploring the Disney worlds truly felt like you were in the movies, there were loads of side-quests, and even the Gummi Ship missions were improved! That said, the game's story was a total disaster. Kingdom Hearts III's Underwhelming Story To preface, the writing throughout KH, Chain of Memories, KH2, 358/2 Days, and Birth By Sleep was hardly perfect. There was plenty of cheesy dialog, some retcons & minor contradictions, and a few plot-points could be confusing if you didn't thoroughly read the games' journals. But those small faults were made-up for by the lively cast of characters and their interesting stories. And if you were a diehard fan of the series, you could still make sense of & appreciate the extensive lore. And while Dream Drop Distance's story was a bit of a mess (thanks to its confusing use of time-travel and dream-worlds), it at least felt like an awkward-but-necessary step towards KH3, where hopefully everything would come together. Unfortunately, KH3's writing paled in comparison to the charming stories told in the earlier games. Gone were the days of feeling like an epic Disney/Final Fantasy crossover through the lens of interesting original characters. In fact, Disney worlds and characters were no longer relevant to the plot at all; Sora would visit worlds for no discernable reason and essentially watch the movies' plotlines play-out in front of him. The grand "Keyblade War” amounted to being a small skirmish in the desert. Respect to character backgrounds, motivations, and lore was thrown out the window. Plotholes, inconsistencies, and unnecessary retcons were blatant. And finally, we were left with more cliff-hangers/unresolved plotlines than any of the previous games in the saga! Despite years of cryptic dialog and journal entries, mysterious lingering plotlines, and answers being teased by the director in interviews, it's obvious that nothing about this game's story had been planned in advance. Instead, a plot was haphazardly thrown together and painted with some cheap "fan service" moments. Or to put it another way: What could've been a satisfactory saga-closer à la Avengers: Endgame, instead more so resembled the Game of Thrones finale. But after fantasizing about the game for years, so many "what could've been" ideas & theories still rang in our heads...to the point where we thought "hey, we should rewrite the entire game!" What is "Kingdom Hearts III Re:Imagined"? Kingdom Hearts III Re:Imagined is a passion-project webcomic created by some fans who grew up with the series. With this webcomic, we aim to overhaul the entire story of Kingdom Hearts III, in order to let other long-time fans experience what we consider to be a more satisfying end to the saga. The Disney worlds will be completely rewritten to be pertinent to the plot, glaring plotholes/unanswered questions will be stamped-out, and the story will feel less convoluted. But making our comic feel like it could actually be a part of the series was our primary goal. So naturally, we can guarantee that there will be: No Disney worlds that weren't already present in KH3 No Marvel/Star Wars characters No edgy/"mature" themes No original/fanfic characters No changes to existing characters' personalities No outlandish retcons (any retcons will be logical/can be backed-up with evidence) No shipping To ensure that our story and script are as respectful/accurate to the series as possible, nearly 30 pages of notes were taken on the previous games. So in order to fully understand our story, you should be very familiar with the following: Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep While the events of Dream Drop Distance will be acknowledged in our story, this really only pertains to the formation of the new Organization XIII & the Guardians of Light (time-travel, dreams, and data will not be relevant). Kingdom Hearts: coded also won't be very relevant, outside of perhaps a passing reference. Regarding Kingdom Hearts: Union X Dark Road & Melody of Memory, plot-points from these games will not be acknowledged whatsoever. We feel that the original 5 games had already set-up great stories/lore to build upon in KH3, and that the retcons introduced in the mobile games were completely unnecessary. As mentioned before, this is purely a non-profit passion-project from old fans of the series. We are not professional writers, and to us this is just a fun project that we work on in our down-time. So don't expect frequent updates, this will certainly take a long time for us to finish! But we've had a great time creating it so far, and we're very excited to share our ideas. At the time of this writing, the first 4 chapters are now available. Admittedly, the first three are a little exposition-heavy, as they're acting as the game's intro. But we feel that our Toy Story chapter is a perfect representation of our goals with this webcomic, so we hope you check that out. Enjoy! https://www.wattpad.com/story/345859504-kingdom-hearts-iii-reimagined

    I knew someone would comment on this. I know that, technically, Big Ben is the name of the bell inside the tower, but most everyone refers to the whole tower as Big Ben, even though its official name, as only of 2012, is indeed Elizabeth Tower.

    I think Sora is most likely to be the one we play as in the tutorial, but Kairi could also work story-wise as we know she's starting to train under Master Aqua so the game could begin with her first training session where Aqua goes through the basics with her to see what Kairi knows.

    I think there was an interview with Nomura not too long ago stating there was talk of possibly porting Missing Link to console, so here's hoping. 🤞

    Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep has been such an influential game, and it's insane that so few assets are extracted from it. Even before AI, there existed advanced audio software which, when fed a music song, it could remove that specific song from any clip it was input'd, and as a result, remove background music in cutscenes. Yet, no one took that undertaking as it would take a full month juggling the tracks and changing their pitch and timing to match the cutscene's. Alas, with the AI craze, I found an effective AI tool which did just that - extract vocals from cutscenes. The result? All raw voice clips, as if you extracted them from the source project. Labelled Voice Clips Per Character Character Name Total Voice Clips Unfiltered Voice Clips Aqua 786 35 Terra 612 53 Ventus 726 55 Xehanort 317 81 Eraqus 181 24 Vanitas 109 27 Braig 108 8 Mickey 58 4 Yensid 77 2 DiZ 52 6 Terranort 39 2 MergedVanitas 11 0 Link for all the above characters' voice clips: https://www.mediafire.com/file/bpccu89hx3otwmd/bbs.zip/file This is essentially gaming history, so I feel the need to share this. If I don't, someone else will spend 2 weeks in the future.

    All the news Doesn't have to be a release date or window necessarily, but any sort of update on KHIV would be pretty rad. Realistically though, I'm looking forward to Missing-Link's full release!

    I would love to have some announcement on Dark Road & Union Cross getting a proper Unreal Engine production to release while KH4 continues to develop. Of course, till that time comes, I most look forward to Missing Link to release XD

    to add to the interviews above, here's another site that has a few of Nomura's earlier interviews + some more recent ones (like about Yozora). These are in Japanese, but Google translate will get ya through it just fine enough-ish kinda... it's no more confusing than the plot of KH. A few more Nomura Interviews, FF and KH in Japanese

    Ordinarily I'd say Soul Eater. I like it marginally better than Way to Dawn. I love the symbolism but the wing's color kinda clashes for me. If the wing had a similar color pallet, I would say its the superior weapon by far. Its a small nick pick though. I understand that its supposed to be lighter in color for the symbolism of Riku's strengthening light. However, in order to give this poll more variety, I'll say Keyblade of People's Hearts. Its dangerous and intimidating looking while still being simple in design. I'm still slightly bummed that it was only in the first game for a short awhile. It's also the weapon that created Roxas and Namine and Xion albeit indirectly.

    I am not surprised to see Way to Dawn winning. I voted for it too. While the giant car key meme that arose from Braveheart was epic, Braveheart really does feel like a huge downgrade after how storied a journey Riku had with Way to Dawn evolving from his initial trademark weapon Soul Eater. The scene of Rikusem stabbing Maleficent with the Key of Peoples Hearts is always gonna be a fun one to watch. Cold brutal betrayal at its finest.
