  1. As some have already noticed, 9/9 is Demyx Day. I wonder if that will mean anything with the trailer.
  2. I know what you mean, but I think it depends for me. From what we've seen so far with the Luxord and Xigbar stuff, I'd be okay with that being put separately/to be played after the game because I think it feels like a "Here's what was happening when no one was looking" sort of scenario. But it sounds like we might get scenes with Xion, too, and that seems like something that would feel more cohesive if it were integrated into the main game. I recall reading a quote that gave me the impression that it will all be accessed from the start menu, though... Like, that's not a deal-breaker for me. I'll still want it. But I agree that it's probably not the perfect way for it to be done.
  3. We do kind of know what's in the DLC, though. They already gave us a basic outline of the contents. I hesitate to hear more because I don't want them to spoil us. Nomura said Demyx will be there. That's all I need to know to fork over my munny. lol All I want now is a release date.
  4. It's my dream to see the Master of Masters sing "Trust in Me" from the Jungle Book. So yeah. I'd be down with this idea. lol Especially if he's Demyx? Dude. It would just be a missed opportunity if they didn't have some musical numbers involved. I even remember Nomura saying that he wanted to turn the game into a whole musical one time, but Yoko Shimomura steered him away from the idea. A shame, if you ask me. Maybe he'll finally get his wish... Maybe Atlantica and Frozen were just the start... I'd like it if they were cutscenes integrating with the story, but I wouldn't say no to rhythm game sections. A lot of people disliked Atlantica's gameplay... And I can understand why... It was really basic. I can't say it was especially fuuuun... But I know that they could do better now. Square-Enix made Theatrhythm. They know how to make a rhythm game. They could figure something out.
  5. Yeah, I don't see a problem with that. (Although my first reaction was "Wait, is this old news?") You either provide a demo of something or you don't. Might as well show what you have, right? Personally, I'd still be interested in playing that demo since it had some little differences compared to the final game - assuming it's still the same old demo. I don't think they could share a demo of the DLC, so I hope nobody's expecting that. It would most definitely have major spoilers for anyone who hasn't played the full game yet. For now, they just want to keep KH3 in people's minds. (Re:Minding them, if you will.)
  6. Personally, I think the MoM time traveled by putting his heart in the box, and that's why he disappeared. The power of waking isn't the same as time travel. It seems more like time manipulation. (Power of waking: Time moves while you stay in place. Time travel: You move as time stays in place.) We saw the MoM in the DLC trailer talking to YMX, so I don't think he abused the power of waking like Sora did. I think you're right about Xehanort and Eraqus, though. Particularly Xehanort. As an old man, he was just a puppet of the MoM and Luxu, but I think that once YMX was brought back from the past and saw what was happening, he realized how he was being used. That's probably why he was encouraging Sora to find the hearts joined to his. There was definitely something going on with him. He didn't seem to be 100% into what they were doing. Now that I think about it, the MoM might have wanted someone like Sora to use the power of waking so he didn't have to. LOL Wow, what a jerk.
  7. Okay, true. Xehanort was, himself, the portal. lol Either way, what I'm saying is that the MoM must have seen all of this in the future and planned accordingly.
  8. If you're talking about the 2nd keyblade war, I wanna say no because I feel like it must have occurred for an even bigger reason... But I think that the war might have been partially necessary to the Master of Masters' revival for at least one reason. This is just a theory, but people have assumed that the black box was hidden somewhere in the keyblade graveyard or in Scala ad Caelum. One of the lines Maleficent says to Pete implies that they were having trouble finding the box because it must have been hidden in another time. During the keyblade war, Xehanort opened a portal to Scala ad Caelum. Xigbar could have dragged it out from there, or something else about the war caused the box to reappear in the keyblade graveyard. During the final stage of the fight with Xehanort, as you're fighting on top of the tower, there are these huge summon circle things that appear on the ground. (And even before that, enveloping all of Scala ad Caelum, iirc.) The summon circle things have the emblems of the Foretellers on them, including a goat to represent either Luxu or the MoM. I wouldn't be surprised if that had something to do with their return as well. Combined with the fact that the Daybreak Town clock tower is under the water there, Scala ad Caelum definitely has a connection to everything. I kinda get the impression that the first keyblade war was used to set everything in motion, and then the second war was to restore things to the way that they were. (For the MoM and the Foretellers, at least.) Xehanort used the war for his own plans, of course, but the MoM probably had his own use for it.
  9. To my knowledge, there's never been a strict rule that says who can use the corridors of darkness. The people who could use them just seem to have some things in common - they're either Nobodies or they have an association with darkness. Those three seem like they're on the side of light now, so I wouldn't expect them to be able to use them, but I also wouldn't be that surprised if Nomura waved his hand and made up a reason for why they could. lol
  10. Seems a little rude to assume that that's how OP feels. That's not even what they're saying. I think it's a fair question to ask. At the moment, I don't think we've heard official word on that, though, so your guess is as good as mine. Personally, I think it's just coincidental. I didn't get the impression that there were any scenes with him that were cut or anything. There were so many characters for them to cover in one game, it must have been hard enough finding the opportunity to give everyone some screen time. Regardless of the outside circumstances, Xehanort has always been more of a "final boss" type of character who makes his big appearance near the end of the games anyway. But I can understand if you wanted to see more of him, seeing as how this was the end of his saga.
  11. Ages later, I return to this post feeling like a fool because now I'm almost certain that Luxord is Ava. (Or her Nobody.) It wouldn't even be that weird for her to appear in another time as a guy. If I'm right about the Foretellers being artificial hearts, then everything about her original identity was something dictated by the Master of Masters. By the time Ava confronted Luxu and went rogue, she seemed like a totally different person from the one we saw in Back Cover. It's like as soon as she began to think for herself, her own individual identity began to form. So here are a few things I'm feeling... The interactions between Xigbar and Luxord in the DLC trailer remind me a lot of Luxu and Ava. If Luxord regained some of his memories and remembered who he was by that point, that might have been reason for him to become suspicious that Xigbar was Luxu. Hence, the line about "playing dumb." The scene in the trailer feels like a parallel to their confrontation in khux. Ava fits the description of the traitor, but she doesn't bear the sigil. Luxord, however, is number X. I'm absolutely positive that Demyx is the Master of Masters. (Er... His Nobody.) Out of the mysterious four, he was chosen first. Like how Marluxia and Larxene have a connection with each other, I feel like Luxord must have a connection to Demyx. Since Ava seemed interested in pursuing the MoM, I wouldn't be surprised if she bumbled her way into the Organization in her attempt to follow him. Luxord is a gambler and Ava's name means "greed". (Back in KH2, Luxord referred to the boss Heartless of Port Royal as "a veritable maelstrom of avarice.") Luxord has always been protective of the younger members of the Organization as well as Sora. In a diary entry in Days, he even has an entry where he wistfully contemplates the differences between adults and children and remarks on the courage of children. The Gambler Nobodies straight-up look like Ava's Foreteller outfit, sharing all the same colors in all the same places. As the wiki states, "A Gambler does not seem to have an actual body, and is instead an animated set of clothing." It's sort of like they're what remained of the old Ava after she became someone new. Or, you could interpret them as the robes she discarded after she made her decision to betray the MoM. More than games themselves, Luxord has a preoccupation with following the rules and getting others to obey them as well. Obeying the MoM's rules without question was Ava's major flaw. It seems like Luxord carries that flaw, trusting that everyone will play fairly as long as there are rules. Whenever someone ignores the rules (such as Jack), he's thrown off guard and that's what usually leads to his defeat. Nomura has drawn Xigbar, Demyx, and Luxord together a number of times. There's gotta be a connection there. Now here's the fun part... We still don't know what the "traitor" did to be called a traitor. All of the Foretellers fought each other, not just Ava. So why did the Master of Masters single out one of them as a traitor? What does the person with the sigil do...? Rest in peace, Demyx.
  12. Oh hey, I've thought about this! Luxu spent like a thousand years relying only on himself. It might have been something the MoM taught him, or it might have been something he came to believe along the way, but I think he thinks that you only need yourself to be strong. As a result, he believes that only someone who possesses individual strength is deserving of the keyblade. Sora doesn't seem to take pride in his own strength, though. He's the total opposite. Even if he were weak and worthless on his own, he trusts in his friends to support him. After seeing the way the Foretellers utterly fell apart and didn't work together, it's likely that Xigbar doesn't see "friends" as a source of strength at all. The fact that Sora takes pride in something that Xigbar sees as a weakness is the thing that makes him react so strongly here.
  13. There was a Back Cover interview where Nomura got asked about Luxu and I found his answer really interesting. He described Luxu as being very similar to the MoM, making the distinction that Luxu is the "philosophical" one, whereas the MoM is the "quirky one". They remind me of a manzai act - a Japanese comedy duo where one is the "idiot" and the other is the straight man. In this case, I see Xigbar being the straight man. I expect that we'll see them working together a lot. In TWEWY terms, I think the MoM is like the Composer, powerful and important yet rarely seen. Luxu is the Conductor, the one who takes the MoM's orders and interprets them for the others. The Foretellers are probably like Game Masters, the ones who follow the Conductor and actually do the legwork. I don't think I've seen anyone mention this theory here yet, but I think the Foretellers were an experiment. Like, they were artificial hearts or ancient replicas based on keyblade wielders from the future, created to be the MoM's personal brainwashed army. (Or maybe he just wanted friends... *looks at Demyx* Hmm... That'd be sad.) I don't think Luxu is one of them. Seeing as how he seemed like the MoM's assistant, he's probably a regular human... Or maybe he was part of the MoM, like Vanitas is to Ventus. That would explain their similarities. That's just another thing that gives me the impression that Luxu will have a commanding role over the Foretellers. As for when the MoM will return, I think Re:mind will show us how he comes back. I don't know how/why Nomura would drag it out for any longer than that, especially when we've probably already figured out who he is. asfkhjdk
  14. I assume you're talking about the emblem of the Book of Prophecies. As far as we know, it represents the Master of Masters. At the moment, nobody knows why the emblem was on Yen Sid's chalkboard. All I can say is that it doesn't seem unreasonable for it to be there/for him to know about it, seeing as how he's a keyblade master himself. If Brain was the one who Luxu bestowed the No Name to, then that means that Brain may have passed his knowledge of the Book down to future keyblade masters, including Yen Sid. That's just one possibility.
  15. I thought the implication was that you could select which character you fight as at those parts. The information we received so far was vague, so I could be wrong, but I imagined it would be like we get a menu or an area where we can choose to repeat those Keyblade Graveyard fights with the characters of our choosing. (Maybe portals would show up where the bosses used to be, idk.) In other words, it would be separate from the story.
