  1. This is an interesting theory. However, I feel like Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance already disproved it. Near the end of the game, after Young Xehanort called Sora his "new vessel", Young Xehanort told Riku, "We originally had our sights set on you. But, you developed a certain...resistance to darkness. So we did what the Keyblade did, and moved down the list." Also, if Riku was one of Xehanort's vessels, he would have been sitting in one of the seats in Where Nothing Gathers instead of confronting Young Xehanort. I think the reason why Riku didn't seem surprised at what was happening when the darkness was consuming Destiny Islands, his friends, and himself and why he wasn't afraid of the darkness was because he had already opened his heart to darkness. Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, explained this to Sora, Donald, and Goofy at the end of Kingdom Hearts 1. He said, in the form of Riku, "Take a look at this tiny place. To the heart seeking freedom this island is a prison surrounded by water. And so this boy sought out to escape from his prison. He sought a way to cross over into other worlds. And he opened his heart to darkness." We learn in Birth by Sleep that Riku knew that there were other worlds even as a child. He also even had the desire to visit other worlds at that young age in order to become strong enough to protect the things that matter to him. So, my guess is that either what he told Sora and Kairi at the beginning of Kingdom Hearts 1, about not thinking of any of this until Kairi showed up, is now retconned, or finding out that Kairi came from another world ignited his desire to visit other worlds so much that he finally decided to act on it.
  2. I personally have never experienced any of these issues other than the long loading times, which didn't really bother me that much. It might be because I don't use some of the strategies that other people use, such as going into Drive Form and reverting right away to heal, but whatever the reason, I just don't experience most of those issues. I have a lot of nitpicks, but overall, I felt like they were good games. The issues I faced and the nitpicks I have are not enough to ruin the game for me. So, I don't feel that I have a reason to complain. However, if other people have issues and feel the need to complain, then by all means, complain. Square-Enix needs to know if you have complaints. I won't pretend that these issues don't exist for others. However, if I don't feel the need to complain, I should not have to complain.
  3. I know that I am really late to this topic, but I just wanted to share something that I think is interesting. A lot of people are saying that Luxu must be the man in the black coat who is talking to Ira in the E3 2016 trailer for Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue. However, on this page of Famitsu Weekly, it says in the text box at the top, "The one who holds the key to this story is the Foretellers' Master in the black coat. He seems so unusual, telling this young man who wants to save the world, 'It's useless.'": http://kh13.com/forum/gallery/image/42915-master-of-masters/ Therefore, the man in the black coat that everyone is saying is Luxu must actually be the Master of Masters, unless that is Luxu, and the Master of Masters possessed him or something like that.
  4. I thought it went like this: 1. Ira = Wrath (ira); Unicorn 2. Invi = Envy (invidia); Snake 3. Aced = Sloth (acedia); Bear 4. Gula = Gluttony (gula); Leopard? 5. Ava = Greed (avaritia); Fox 6. Luxu = Lust (luxuria); Goat 7. Master of Masters = Pride (superbia); Lion? My only question is: Why is Gula a Leopard? That isn't one of the animals listed on the chart.
  5. If you were to pick any Pixar world to appear in Kingdom Hearts III, which one would it be and why? I would pick Toy Story, because it is my favorite movie of all time, and it is not only Pixar's first movie, but it is also their most iconic movie.
  6. While it seems that Pixar milks some of their properties, from everything we have heard from them, they actually don't. When Pixar announced that every currently planned movie after The Incredibles 2 is going to be an original movie, a quote from Pixar's president was released in Entertainment Weekly, in which, as Entertainment Weekly said, "Pixar president Jim Morris spoke about the studio's development process, why certain sequels made the cut, and why you won't be seeing anything less than original at Pixar for quite some time." Jim Morris explained, "Most studios jump on doing a sequel as soon as they have a successful film, but our business model is a filmmaker model, and we don't make a sequel unless the director of the original film has an idea that they like and are willing to go forward on. A sequel in some regards is even harder [than the original] because you've got this defined world which, on the one hand, is a leg up, and on the other hand has expectations that you can't disappoint on." This seems to also be true about Toy Story 4, since, as D23.com says, "The story was dreamt up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich, the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three Toy Story films." So, at least that is encouraging. Also, a quote from John Lasseter on the same D23 website goes to show that Toy Story 4 is not trying to milk the franchise either. He said, "We love these characters so much; they are like family to us. We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. Toy Story 3 ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another Toy Story movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee, and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself." Do I think that Toy Story 4 is necessary? No. However, I have learned from experience not to doubt Pixar. There have been a lot of movies that they have made, such as Ratatouille and Up, that I didn't think were going to be good until I actually saw the movie. So, I will reserve my judgement until I have seen Toy Story 4 myself. Besides, the Toy Story franchise didn't end with Toy Story 3, since there have been a lot of shorts and specials that have continued it. Also, even if those shorts and specials weren't made, it's not like nothing ever happened to the toys again once Andy left them with Bonnie. So, what is another movie going to hurt, as long as it is done right?
  7. Do you think that there is a chance that we will not even see the Master of Masters? We might learn his name, but it might be possible that we never see him or his Keyblade. With Luxu's Keyblade being the oldest one in existence (meaning that the other Keyblades from that time might no longer be around) and the Master of Masters disappearing (and Luxu appears to not want to reveal his location), that just seems to me that it is possible that we will never see him.
  8. Spoilers for Kingdom Hearts X [chi], Birth by Sleep, re:coded, and Dream Drop Distance:
  9. That is a good point. Maybe I just misinterpreted the translation. Maybe the official translation will make it clearer.
  10. What you said. Also, it seems like the lost page reveals that the Master of Masters wants the Keyblade War to happen, and it's Luxu's mission to make sure that everything goes according to the Master of Masters' plan, after which he will go to the future and "inherit the secret", whatever that means.
  11. To me, it looks like the man in the black coat who is talking to Ira is just stretching. I personally don't think that is a different personality. Also, I still personally think that their voices sound way too similar, but maybe that's just my problem. I guess we will find out when the game comes out this winter. I never thought that Nomura was lying. It just comes down to whether or not there is more than one person in a black coat in the trailer. Also, since Nomura himself said that the Master of Masters "has a sort of unusual mood to him", doesn't that mean that Ira is talking to the Master of Masters, since he looks more laid back and easygoing, which is not what a Master is usually like in this series? I also found this, which not only shows screenshots of two of the three clips that show a man in a black coat on the same page, implying that they are the same person, but also says at the top, "The one who holds the key to this story is the Foretellers' Master in the black coat. He seems so unusual, telling this young man who wants to save the world, 'It's useless.'": http://kh13.com/forum/gallery/image/42915-master-of-masters/ So, I still personally think that there is just one person in a black coat, meaning that the Master of Masters possessed Luxu. However, if the man in the black coat who had the different zipper is a different person, my guess is that it was just a clip from the past, before the Master of Masters and Luxu disappeared, and that the Master of Masters has now possessed Luxu, meaning that there is now just one person in a black coat. However, those are just my thoughts. I could be completely wrong. Thanks! It looks like I was wrong. That was not a man in a black coat. That was Invi (or at least I agree that it looks the most like Invi). So, now the question is, "Why was she there?" If I had to take a guess, either she just happened to be there at that time, or, since the camera pan seemed to imply that she had something to do with King Mickey being there, maybe she was hoping that King Mickey could help prevent the end of the world, so she used her copy of the Book of Prophecies to bring him there or something like that.
  12. I never would have caught the zipper thing! That definitely gives more evidence toward there being two people in black coats. The only thing I could possibly think of to explain this is that Square-Enix just changed the design later. However, I have no evidence to back that up. I still think that their voices are way too similar in the trailer. Also, whereas the builds of the Foretellers all look different, the builds of the people in the black coats in the trailer (if they are different people) look exactly the same to me. I personally just do not think that they are two different people, but I could be wrong. I am completely in the dark on this one. Could you please explain how you came to that conclusion? If you ever find it again, can you please tell me? I did not know about this at all and would like to see why people think this, because I personally can't see it.
  13. I completely agree with you there. Since, in my opinion, we have no reason to believe that there are two people in black coats, the man in the black coat must be the Master of Masters, since Nomura told Famitsu that he was. However, since, in this update, we found out that the man in the black coat is Luxu, the sixth apprentice, it seems to me that the most logical way to make sense of what the update revealed and what Nomura said is that the Master of Masters possessed Luxu. Luxu doesn't have a copy of the Book of Prophecies. He said so himself in the update. I believe that, since the Master of Masters has an eye to see into the future, he didn't need a copy of the Book of Prophecies, if the Master of Masters did indeed possess him. I don't think Master Xehanort was talking about surviving the original Keyblade War. I think he was talking about surviving the next Keyblade War, the one he was planning on starting in Birth by Sleep before Aqua and Ventus destroyed the imperfect X-Blade. However, that does not rule out the option that he did exist that long ago. I personally just don't think that he did, since he doesn't seem to have much knowledge on it (he said to Eraqus, "We know so little about the Keyblade War--only that it was just the beginning"). That being said, from what I can gather about what Luxu was saying, Luxu's mission sounds a lot like Master Xehanort's plan: watch to make sure that the Keyblade War happens, and then go to the future to "inherit the secret". Maybe there is a connection there somehow.
  14. While it is a definite possibility that there is more than one person in a black coat, we have gotten no hints whatsoever to there being more than one. Therefore, I personally do not think that there is. However, I could be wrong. Major spoilers for Kingdom Hearts X [chi]:
  15. That is definitely a possibility. However, I personally don't think that there are more than one, because we never got any sort of hint at all that there are more than one. But you could be right. That is another possibility! I don't think that Nomura was lying either. I just put down an extreme other explanation, because that's the only other explanation I could think of at the time. Major spoilers for Kingdom Hearts X [chi]:
  16. Spoilers for Kingdom Hearts 1, Riku's story in Chain of Memories, and maybe slight spoilers for re:coded and Dream Drop Distance:
  17. Spoilers for Birth by Sleep (if you haven't played it yet):
  18. This is a very interesting idea. I actually kind of want to see this happen. I doubt that it will end up happening, but it would be interesting if it did.
