Of course not everything would be revealed in Kingdom Hearts 3 why on Earth would they do that? We would see peace on Earth and end world hunger before nomura would do something like that.

Okay, what he said about Lauriam is different than the previous translation. That basically him not giving anything away and letting us figure out the connections. In regards to the story, it sounds like Union χ will finish on its own terms or have elements of plot connect to the next saga.

I don't really want to theorize at how Ventus exists in two completely different timelines. I just want to sit back and let it all unfold and be amazed as it comes.

He is he, I am me, you are you... Lauriam is Lauriam and we're all perfectly okay.

The whole :Lauriam is Lauriam" thing is nonsense. I instantly interpreted it similar to "Roxas is not Sora". Typical Nomura trolling us, lol!

 

Also on the subject of KHx not being wrapped up in KHIII...I figured that would happen. I felt like they were building up the Master of Masters to be something more. Evidence suggests that thanks to the confirmation of MoM not being in KHIII. I think the Master of Masters will be the next antagonist after Xehanort at this point, but who knows? I also think that they may be building up Ventus as the main protagonist in the saga after the Dark Seeker Saga. Once again, who knows?

 

Definitely some interesting tidbits during this event, that's for sure.

Nomura already stated time and time again that Sora will always be the main character.
