  1. Hey guys! I’d like to point out a pair of YouTube videos that I’m sure abridge lovers, Kingdom Hearts III players, and fans will enjoy: Kingdom Hearts III Abridged Episode 1 by Rharyx https://youtu.be/z5rgN-0k-Zs Kingdom Hearts III Abridged Episode 2 by Rharyx https://youtu.be/eOxdnWZxpj8 The immediate thing I like to point out is that Rharyx’s Sora is closer to what Kingdom Hearts III Sora is character-wise. My own take of Sora in my skits was based on LittleKuriboh’s version of Yami Yugi, a guy who is full of pop references and snarkiness towards most people he is associated with (at least that’s my intent behind the character). What are your thoughts on Rharyx’s parody series of Kingdom Hearts III so far?
  2. The Youtube channel 13th Vessel has uploaded an interesting YouTube video named “KINGDOM HEARTS III - Exploring Scala Ad Caelum [Out of Bounds]” where they freely explore Scala Ad Caelum. In this video, they take Sora all across Scala Ad Caelum, to areas entirely hidden to the player during Kingdom Hearts III. We get to see typically unseen locations that are between and behind the buildings. This is the first instance in which we can see the full scope of Scala Ad Caelum and how much was created for this area of Kingdom Hearts III. This video is quite beautiful and insightful for any Kingdom Hearts fan. 13th Vessel is skilled in hacking, glitching and modding the Kingdom Hearts games, and has a range of interesting videos on this topic, as well as many other Kingdom Hearts related videos. You can watch the video below. There is also a glitch tutorial video regarding Scala ad Caelum. You can watch that below. View full article
  3. Kingdom Hearts III Skit – Into Verum Rex By TrinityXaos# - Summary: [KHIII SPOILERS] You would think getting your toy dinosaur from a video game store would be so simple. Sadly, Sora and his crew’s problem is not a case of lost and found, but of Xehanort meddling. How will Sora put up with this round of Xehanort shenanigans at Galaxy Toys? - INT. Video Game Store, Galaxy Toys, Toy Box. [Right when the party and Rex begin to leave the area.] YOUNG XEHANORT (Will be abbreviated as Y.X.): Au contraire, I cannot have you guinea pigs leave just yet. The group turned around to discover Young Xehanort had reappeared. Sora, Donald, and Goofy armed themselves before the whole party moved to battle position. SORA: Benanort! Y.X.: It’s “Young Xehanort”! Or plain “Xehanort” to you! And why are you calling me “Benanort?!” SORA: What other nickname would fit for a guy voiced by Ben Diskin? Young Xehanort groans in annoyance as he signals a Heartless to possess Buzz. The Heartless does so. That begins the dramatic Buzz attacks Woody moment, minus the cartoon-y tone in the characters’ voice acting. - Sora turned back to Young Xehanort in frustration. SORA: Didn’t Pinocchio teach you anything about bodies and hearts already?! Y.X. That puppet boy was but evidence for creating this experiment… SORA: Let me guess – dark plans. Now get a taste of Riku’s experiences with my Keyblade’s fury! Sora swung at Young Xehanort, but Young Xehanort vanished. Sora was annoyed. SORA: Not this again. Y.X.: As I was saying before you so rudely interrupted— SORA: Don’t care! Repeat. Only this time, Young Xehanort was on top of a shelf. Y.X.: Rude again! Now let me explain the experiment! Even if I have to go faster than my usual monotone self. The Xehanort monologue from that scene went at 1.5 (maybe 2) times the original speed. Sora, on the other hand, went upwards to hack Young Xehanort down. But Young Xehanort vanished with each hit of the combo. SORA: Will you—just take—a few— Sora spotted Young Xehanort down on the floor and jumped down for another strike. SORA: —proper hits?! Young Xehanort vanished again. That was enough of a “no” for Sora. DONALD: Sora! Sora looked at the situation with Buzz and Woody. Donald and Rex were trying to keep Buzz from attacking Woody who was behind the protection of Goofy and his trusty shield. REX: Do something! Sora looked disgruntled and sighed in dismay. SORA: I’m really not getting paid enough for this… Alright! Just expect some pay cuts though, minions! Sora made a move to help, but Young Xehanort grabbed Sora’s Keyblade handle and held it and Sora up in the air with one hand. SORA: What the –?! Y.X.: Did you know a Keyblade wielder is quite vulnerable to being grabbed by the wrist or their Keyblade while they have it in their hands? SORA: You’re kidding! Aah… Young Xehanort charges up a dark and reddish energy ball and aims it at Sora’s abdomen. Y.X.: This is for “Benanort.” Young Xehanort blasted the dark energy ball into Sora and sends the hero straight into the Verum Rex demo screen. - Sora wakes up in the demo factory area near a blue Gigas robot. Sora rises with annoyance. SORA: Urg…Where am I? Y.X. (Off-Screen) To this world’s resident, you are from a Square Enix game. I merely cast you into their current in-a-game fake game demo world. Sora looks up to the skies as he hears Young Xehanort’s voice. SORA: Wait! Are you saying you Persona 4’d me here?!* Young Xehanort was back in the game store talking at the demo screen’s area. Y.X.: Yes. I sent you into a Gigas heavy mini-game demo. SORA: So you Persona 4’d me, but instead of sending me to a dungeon area, I’m in a Titanfall 2 cliché?** Don’t you think that’s a bit much on the kids with games for older audiences? Young Xehanort was silent for a moment with a deadpan scowl forming on his face. Y.X.: I hope the upcoming Gigas army gives you hell, Sora. After all, I did place a huge wager against you escaping in 3 minutes or less. Ciao! Young Xehanort leaves in a dark corridor. Back inside the game demo, Sora was shocked. SORA: What?! GIGAS: (Off-screen) GET. THE. YOZORA. KNOCK-OFF! Sora gets into battle formation. SORA: Better think twice there, mechas! END Author’s Note: *The whole thing about Persona 4 was thanks to my current playthroughs with Persona 5 and looking up stuff related to the game and its series. The Midnight Channel from Persona 4 was what I was thinking of with that reference. In hindsight, I could have used Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth or Epic Mickey since they had a similar transport methodology. **If you know the general premise of Titanfall 2 or read articles about it, you could see where I was getting at for this reference. The Gigas gimmick reminded me of what I know of Titanfall 2 thanks to Game Informer’s articles, since both involve a human character and a robot that can be piloted for combat.

  5. Also on DeviantArt and Pixiv. My contribution artwork for Kingdom Hearts III's worldwide release on January 29th.
  6. We have seen many interview questions about the story of Kingdom Hearts III recently with sources from Dengiki and the game’s Ultimania. However, I feel that some of those questions aren’t fully satisfying, partly because of the interviews weren’t fully going into the development choices of the game (as in asking about the Lingering Will or stuff related to Union Cross) and they may have received dodgy answers (the whereabouts of Demyx for example). As someone who has followed and played the game, I’d like to present some of my own interview questions that I would like answered by the developers in a clear way (that means actually talking about the details and not just dodging it). For this list, I want to present possibly good questions about the storyline, character, and development choices which affected the game’s story. A quick warning though, there will be points where I may end up having to go on a ranting phase. Sorry about that guys. Here we go:
  7. Square Enix has announced on their site that the Japanese voice actor for Olaf, Pierre Taki, will be replaced in a future update for Kingdom Hearts III. Taki was recently arrested with using cocaine. Disney has already announced they are looking for a replacement for Olaf for the Japanese release of Frozen 2, which is set to release later this year. His replacement and a date for the update patch has yet to be announced. The patch will only be for the Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts III. View full article

  9. I’m not sure if this will be considered a spoiler, but I will put it as one.
  10. At first, the story might not seem like much has changed, but as it progresses, I believe you will notice a significant difference. Please enjoy. - R.F. de Bello CHAPTER ONE [Scala ad Caelum - Exterior] [Time of Day - Day] (The camera sweeps around the city.) [Scala ad Caelum - Library] [Time of Day - Day] (A young Eraqus and Xehanort are sitting on a window sill, playing a strategy game.) YOUNG XEHANORT Have you heard of the ancient Keyblade War? Long ago, Keyblade wielders waged a war over the ownership of light. YOUNG ERAQUS Yeah, the Master's favorite story. YOUNG XEHANORT I wonder what happened to the lost masters- after they summoned Kingdom Hearts? YOUNG ERAQUS ...Who? YOUNG XEHANORT They're the ones who started the Keyblade War. YOUNG ERAQUS Never heard of 'em. Where'd you hear about that? YOUNG XEHANORT You can drop the facade. "On that Land shall Darkness prevail and Light expire." The gazing eye sees the fate of the world. The future- it's already been written. YOUNG ERAQUS Really? I'm not too sure about that. (Eraqus looks up at Xehanort.) YOUNG ERAQUS You might be surprised. (Xehanort looks up at Eraqus.) YOUNG XEHANORT Oh, I hope so... (The camera focuses on two opposing game pieces on the board- one featuring a crown, and the other a goat.) "DISNEY" "SQUARE ENIX" "KINGDOM HEARTS III" (Sora speaks the words written on the screen.) "They can take your world. They can take your heart. Cut you loose from all you know. But if it's your fate... then every step forward will always be a step closer to home." (Face My Fears by Utada Hikaru) [Realm of Darkness - Road to Inner Darkness] [Time of Day - N/A] (Aqua is slowly walking through the Realm of Darkness. She's visibly exhausted.) AQUA Seems like I've been walking for ages. How long have I been down here? (A Darkside suddenly appears beside Aqua. She summons her Keyblade, the Master's Defender. Three more Darksides appear and surround her. Aqua looks around, afraid. Aqua then desummons her Keyblade.) AQUA Maybe... I should fade into the darkness here. (The Darksides begin their attack on Aqua, but before they can land a hit, Aqua's wayfinder glows and two Keyblades, Ends of the Earth and Wayward Wind, come soaring through the darkness. They destroy the Darksides. Aqua looks around in awe. The Keyblades fly off. Aqua smiles. She becomes surprised.) AQUA I've here so long- I almost forgot how to smile. (Aqua pulls out her wayfinder, still aglow.) AQUA There's always a way. (She holds the wayfinder to her heart.) AQUA As long as you're with me, I'll always find my way back. Always. (Aqua begins walking again, having found the will to move forward.) "REALM OF DARKNESS" [Gameplay Begins] [Starter Keyblade: Master's Defender] [Gameplay Ends] [Realm of Darkness - Inner Zones] [Time of Day - N/A] (Aqua begins to feel uneasy. She pulls out her still glowing wayfinder and looks at it. Suddenly, after a loud noise, the ground begins to shake. Aqua looks around, and then looks up. She gasps. A portal of light appears in the high in the distance. A torrent of darkness surges through the portal. Aqua looks confused and horrified. Aqua looks down at her wayfinder and sees its glow fade.) AQUA What is going on? (Aqua closes her eyes and holds her wayfinder to her heart. She opens her eyes, determined.) [Gameplay Begins and Ends] (Through the red, veiny eyes of a mysterious creature, we see the creature look around the area. The creature spots Aqua walking past. Back in a third person view, we see the red-eyed creature leap through the dark trees, circling Aqua. She notices and summons her Keyblade. The creature stops. Aqua looks around, still wary. The creature reappears and leaps towards her from behind. It knocks her over. Aqua gets up as the creature runs towards her again. She casts Firaga at the creature, but it leaps over the spell, and over Aqua. She looks at the creature from below in slow motion.) AQUA [THINKING] This monster... This is no Unversed. (The creature lands in the trees, hiding within their shadows.) AQUA Just a dweller of darkness. [Gameplay Begins] (Boss: Dark Hide) [Gameplay Ends] [Realm of Darkness - Road to Dreams] [Time of Day - Perpetual Night] (Aqua contines walking. She notices something and stops.) AQUA Could it be...? (The camera looks up to reveal the Castle of Dreams, looming in the distance. Aqua begins walking again.) AQUA Why is Cinderlla's world... here in the darkness? (Heartless appear and Aqua stops. She summons her Keyblade.) [Gameplay Begins and Ends] (Aqua is battling a group of Shadows and begins to think.) AQUA [THINKING] It's as the Master said- there's no "time" in the Realm of Darkness. In the Realm of Light, do days or years pass with each step? (Aqua finishes the last one off and desummons her Keyblade.) AQUA [THINKNING] I know something has started to go wrong. I must hurry! [Gameplay Begins and Ends] (Aqua is running towards the castle and stops when she sees the ground in front of her begins to give way. In the aftermath, there are four rocky pillars and a long bar of blue crystal stretching to the other end of the cliff.) AQUA I guess I know which way I'm going. [Gameplay Begins and Ends] [Realm of Darkness - Castle Town] [Time of Day - Perpetual Night] (Aqua is walking down the road. She looks around at the ruined, empty town. She stops and looks at the ground.) AQUA I took it for granted. I thought I had nothing in life to lose. (Aqua closes her eyes and remembers the various events of her life. Afterwards, she opens her eyes and looks around at the town.) AQUA Here, too. Everyone in this world thought that they were safe. Not just the people... but the dog waiting for his owner... the cat curled up in her nook... So much life. Trees and flowers... There's no deeper sadness than discovering all that you know is lost. The grief in this place is too much to fathom. (Aqua stands in silence for a moment, then she begins walking again.) AQUA That's enough. I can't keep on wishing for the past. [Gameplay Begins and Ends] (Aqua is walking in the path to the Castle. She stops and looks up at the clock tower. The clock doesn't seem to being moving. She makes an I-thought-so-face and continues walking. After a loud, ground-shaking explosion, the ground in front of her begins to give way. The bell on the tower suddenly rings. The clock's hands spin like mad as glowing, golden gears flying through the face of the clock. Aqua stops to look at it for a moment, when the ground beneath her gives way. She jumps off the falling ground and lands on the ground above. She turns around and sees that the path to the Castle has been completely destroyed. The bell stops ringing, and the hands stop spinning.) AQUA [THINKING] The road collapsed when the clock advanced. If only I'd made it in time... But there is no time in this place, only... the clock. (Aqua turns arounds and looks for something. She spots a floating swirl of gears nearby. She approaches it, summons her Keyblade, and uses it to hurl the gears back into the clock. The clock's hands move counter-clockwise, slightly. Part of the fallen path returns to its original place.) [Gameplay Begins] (Aqua finds and returns four more gear swirls to the clock, completing the path to the Castle.) [Short Scene Starts] (A Demon Tower suddenly appears in front of Aqua. She summons her Keyblade.) [Short Scene Ends] (Boss: Demon Tower) [Short Scene Starts] (The Demon Tower flees into a dark corridor on the ground.) [Short Scene Ends] [Gameplay Ends] (Aqua stands at the steps leading into the Castle. She looks up at the clock.) AQUA What I wouldn't give to really turn back time... (Aqua turns around and looks up at the sky.) AQUA ...to spend one more night beneath the stars with my best friends. (Aqua reaches up at the sky.) PHANTOM TERRA Aqua. (Aqua gasps and turns around. Phantom Terra walks down the steps.) AQUA It can't be! What are you doing here? You should be in the Realm of Light. (Terra stands before her and says nothing.) AQUA Why won't you say anything to me? (Aqua attempts to grab his hand, but he's just an illusion. Aqua backs away. The illusion dissipates.) [Gameplay Starts and Ends] [Realm of Darkness - Woodlands] [Time of Day - Perpetual Night] (Aqua stops and looks around. She notices the glass coffin that Snow White once rested in. Inside lies a familiar figure.) AQUA Is that...? (Aqua runs towards the coffin and peers in. Phantom Ventus rests inside. Aqua gasps.) AQUA Ven!? (Phantom Ventus vanishes in the same manner as Phantom Terra.) AQUA [THINKING] Ven... I know I promised to wake you up. I'm sorry. But I have to find a way home before I can help you. I just want you to know that's it's been you that keeps my heart strong- keeps the dark away. (Aqua feels a presence behind her and turns around. Before her floats a mirror. She approaches it. Aqua puts a hand on the glass. Her reflection grabs Aqua's hand.) AQUA What!? (Phantom Aqua pulls her in.) [Realm of Darkness - The World Within] [Time of Day - N/A] (Aqua comes out on the other side, Phantom Aqua nowhere to be seen. Aqua turns around to look at the mirror behind her. She has no reflection. Aqua looks around the area and begins walking. Aqua stops, looks down, and sighs. When she looks back up, she finds herself surrounded by three mirrors. They start spinning around her, and then fly off in opposite directions.) AQUA What just happened? (Aqua realizes that she had a reflection in those mirrors. She runs back to the mirror she came from to make sure. She still has no reflection in the mirror.) AQUA Those mirrors... (Aqua turns around to look in their direction.) AQUA maybe they're a clue. [Gameplay Begins] (Throughout this area, Aqua hears Phantom Aqua taunt her. The voice has a strange undertone.) (Aqua completes each of the mirrors' challenges. She then enters the one she came from, which now has a reflection of Aqua, but is showing a strange location.) [Gameplay Ends] (Aqua sees another floating mirror and she approaches it.) AQUA Is this what it means to face your demons? (Phantom Aqua reaches out of the mirror towards Aqua. Aqua jumps back and summons her Keyblade. Phantom Aqua summons a copy of Aqua's Keyblade and walks out of the mirror.) PHANTOM AQUA Only your heart is hollow enough to be a demon's. AQUA That's not true! My heart's strong! I'll prove it! [Gameplay Begins) (Boss: Phantom Aqua) [Gameplay Ends] (Aqua slashes Phantom Aqua and shes vanishes like Phantom Terra and Phantom Ventus. Aqua desummons her Keyblade. She approaches the mirror.) AQUA Terra and Ven didn't have anything to say, but my phantom... she wanted to destroy me. Never would have thought I'd become my own worst enemy. (Aqua sighs.) AQUA I've talked to myself a lot since falling into these shadows, but with the phantom, it's as though all of my doubts have gained a voice of their own. (Silence.) AQUA She's the weakness in my heart. (Aqua turns away from the mirror.) AQUA [THINKING] Have the uncountable hours in the shadows whittled away the courage I never really had? (Aqua pulls out her wayfinder, and looks at it. She then holds it to her heart.) AQUA [THINKING] I'm losing this fight. The darkness has found the cracks in my heart. (She turns back to the mirror.) AQUA [THINKING] How much more can I endure before it takes me over? [Gameplay Starts and Ends] [Realm of Darkness - Forest of Thorns] [Time of Day - Perpetual Night] (Aqua is walking through the forest.) AQUA Another world I know. (Aqua stops when she sees Phantom Terra and Phantom Ventus walking in front of her.) AQUA Terra... Ven... (Her face looks sad and desperate. She runs after them. They vanish as before.) AQUA [THINKING] I don't care if they aren't real. Or if I fall into the darkness. I miss them! (Aqua begins running again. Suddenly, large thorns grow out of the plants. They block the path forward. Aqua summons her Keyblade.) AQUA Get out of my way! [Gameplay Begins] (Throughout this area, Phantom Terra and Phantom Ventus continually appear in front of Aqua. They always vanish.) [Gameplay Ends] (Aqua runs forward, Keyblade in hand. She cuts through the thorns in her way. A Darkside appears in front of her.) AQUA You really think you can keep me away from my friends? [Gameplay Begins] (Boss: Darkside) [Gameplay Ends] [Realm of Darkness - Forbidden Mountain] (Aqua runs out of the forest. An army of Darksides await her.) AQUA Fine, then. [Gameplay Starts] (Boss: Darkside Army) [Gameplay Ends] (Aqua defeats the last one and falls over from exhaustion. She sees Phantom Terra and Phantom Ventus at the bottom of the entrance into Maleficent's castle. Aqua, half-conscious, forces herself to get up and approaches Phantom Terra and Phantom Ventus. Before she can reach them, a vortex of darkness appears right below Aqua and begins to pull her in. She collapses again. In a first person perspective, she sees the phantoms vanish.) AQUA Terra... Ven... (Aqua's eyes shut.) [Realm of Darkness - Depths of Darkness] [Time of Day - N/A] (Aqua is sinking into the abyss. Her wayfinder falls out of her hand.) PHANTOM AQUA Now you can be one with the darkness. (A white-gloved hand grabs Aqua's wayfinder.) MICKEY Aqua. (She opens her eyes. Mickey hands Aqua her wayfinder. He pulls her to the ground.) MICKEY Are you okay? AQUA Mickey... how... did... (Aqua gasps.) AQUA Terra! Ven! (Aqua looks around. Mickey looks confused. He looks behind her and sees something.) MICKEY No time to talk. (Mickey summons his Keyblade, the Star Seeker. Aqua turns around and sees the same Demon Tower from before. She summons her Keyblade.) AQUA Dwellers of darkness... MICKEY They're called Heartless! [Gameplay Begins] (Boss: Demon Tower) [Gameplay Ends] (The Demon Tower flies away.) MICKEY We better not push our luck. (He desummons his Keyblade. Aqua does the same.) MICKEY Gosh. I never thought I'd find ya in the Realm of Darkness, that's for sure. (Silence.) MICKEY So, um, what happened? AQUA Have you seen Terra or Ven? MICKEY No, just you. (Aqua sighs. Silence.) AQUA I'm sorry. The darkness in this place... it's getting to me. MICKEY Oh. But... you'll be okay. (Silence.) MICKEY Say, we've been looking for ya a long time. AQUA How long's it been in the Realm of Light? MICKEY About... ten years. (Silence.) MICKEY How come you're in this place? (Brief silence.) AQUA When I went after Terra, he was about to fall to darkness, so I stayed here in hopes of giving him a chance. MICKEY I... didn't know. AQUA What about you? What could have brought you here? Has something happened in the Realm of Light? MICKEY It's the Heartless. They've been attacking worlds and taking their hearts. And with no hearts, worlds vanish into darkness. But, if we can lock the Door between the two Realms from both sides, we can protect the other worlds. So ya see, I came here to find the Key on this side. AQUA So the worlds really are in danger. (Mickey looks around.) MICKEY We need to hurry! Let's find that Key and go home together! AQUA Does that mean you know an exit? MICKEY Well, uh, I was so busy finding a way in, that I didn't give a lot of thought to where there'd be a way out. But, we're sure to find one together! (Aqua laughs.) AQUA You haven't changed at all. (They both laugh. Mickey looks to the distance.) MICKEY "May your heart be your guiding key." AQUA There's a phrase no one's used in ages. MICKEY Keyblade wielders used to say those words to each other. And now... it's something I like to try and remember. (Mickey holds out his hand.) MICKEY So, ready? (Aqua grabs his hand.) AQUA Ready! [Gameplay Begins and Ends] [Realm of Darkness - Crumbling Island] [Time of Day - Perpetual Day] (Aqua and Mickey look around.) AQUA [THINKING] This is... where I met those children. MICKEY Aqua! (Mickey points in a certain direction.) MICKEY It's this way. C'mon! [Gameplay Starts and Ends] (Aqua and Mickey arrive at the entrance to the secret place. They head inside and stand in front of the featureless door.) MICKEY I bet it's in there. (Aqua and Mickey push on the door, and it opens. Inside floats the Kingdom Key D. Aqua and Mickey approach it.) AQUA Is that what you're after? MICKEY Yep, it's just the Key I was looking for. A Keyblade from the Dark Realm! AQUA A Keyblade of darkness... MICKEY "The Door to Darkness, tied by two Keys." "The Door to Darkness, to seal the light." Welp, we've got the Key. Now we need to close the Door. AQUA Well then, since you'll be the one doing the locking on this side, let me be the one to lock it on the other side. MICKEY Sorry, but the job's taken... by someone else. AQUA Huh? By who? (The ground shakes, and the two of them look around. Suddenly, a flood of brilliant light envelopes them.) [Realm of Darkness - Door to Darkness] [Time of Day - N/A] (When the light dissipates, the two find themselves in a new location. They look around, and begin walking. Around the corner, is the Door to Darkness.) AQUA Is that it? MICKEY Yep, the Door to Kingdom Hearts. (Mickey breathes in.) MICKEY It's time. With this Key in the Realm of Darkness, and his Key in the Realm of Light, we're gonna close this Door. (Mickey pauses for a moment.) MICKEY Aqua, before the Door shuts, you leave through it. AQUA What? MICKEY You've been here long enough. This is your chance. AQUA But what about you? MICKEY Don't worry about me. I'll find a way out! We'll see each other again real soon! (They both smile. Mickey spots Riku running to the Door.) MICKEY Hurry, Aqua! AQUA Right! (The Demon Tower from before, now fully transformed into the Demon Tide, bursts out of a corridor on the ground. Aqua summons her Keyblade.) [Gameplay Begins] (Boss: Demon Tide) [Gameplay Ends] (The Demon Tide heads straight for Riku.) MICKEY Oh no! (Aqua summons her Keyblade and leaps towards it, getting in front of it.) AQUA Back off! (Aqua uses her Keyblade to keep it place. Mickey runs towards Aqua.) MICKEY Aqua! (The Demon Tide breaks free and angrily rush Aqua and Mickey. Aqua becomes trapped in the Demon Tide, and Mickey falls to the ground, his clothes tattered. Mickey looks up as the Demon Tide flees through a dark corridor, taking Aqua with it.) MICKEY Aqua... [Mickey stands for a moment, before realizing he must continue on without her. He runs towards the Door.) [Realm of Darkness - Dark Margin] [Time of Day - N/A] (A man in a black coat sits on a rock on the shore. After a long moment of silence, Aqua approaches.) AQUA Who are you? (The man, surprised, looks at her.) ANSEM THE WISE Why, hello. It's not often I get visitors. AQUA Please, call me Aqua. Why are you sitting here, all alone in the Realm of Darkness? How did you end up here? ANSEM THE WISE Well... I can tell you this is my second time on these shores. But unfortunately, much like the first, I do not remember who I am or whence I came. Everything was washed away in whatever currents carried me here. AQUA That's too bad. (Aqua sits on the ground next to him.) AQUA I know I've been here a long time, wandering through the endless hours... unable to escape. ANSEM THE WISE You wish to return to your own world? (Aqua nods.) AQUA It's my friends. I promised I'd be there for them. ANSEM THE WISE Your friends? (Brief silence.) ANSEM THE WISE Somewhere in the scraps of memory I have left, you remind me of a boy I once knew. He is very much like you- true to his friends and kind. This boy travels to many worlds and fights to keep the light safe. At every turn, that boy arrives with Keyblade in hand to save the day. AQUA Huh? Wait a sec... Is his name Terra or Ven? ANSEM THE WISE Neither of those, I'm afraid. AQUA Should've known... (Silence.) ANSEM How long has it been since I met him? At least a year now, perhaps more... Back then, my heart was clouded with vengeance. I did terrible things... both to him and his friends. I brought unhappiness to more lives than one. I felt something must be done. Was that why? A means of clearing my conscience? Or perhaps, out of a sort of scholarly instinct? While the boy slept his long sleep, I hid the results of my research inside him, transplanting the data to where it might best serve a purpose. In fact, I would like to believe... maybe he can set things right. A boy like him who touches so many hearts- he could open the right door, and save all those people whose lives I managed to ruin. So many are still waiting for their new beginning... their birth by sleep. Even me... and even you. AQUA What's this boy's name? (Pause.) ANSEM THE WISE His name is... (The screen fades.) [The Mysterious Tower - The Tower] [Time of Day - Perpetual Evening] (A portal of light appears outside the Tower. Out walks Sora. He stretches and walks towards the Tower. His face is not shown.) "THE MYSTERIOUS TOWER" [Gameplay Begins] [Starter Keyblades - Kingdom Key; Star Seeker] [Gameplay Ends] (Sora is running up the steps. He spots Donald and Goofy walking ahead of him.) SORA Donald! Goofy! DONALD AND GOOFY [UNISON] Sora! (Sora runs up to them and they embrace each other, laughing. His face is still not shown. They start running up the steps.) DONALD Okay, start talking! GOOFY You were gone a long time. What were ya doin'? SORA Heh heh heh. Secret. [The Mysterious Tower - Sorcerer's Loft] [Time of Day - Perpetual Evening] (Sora opens the door at the top. His face is finally shown.) SORA I'm back! GOOFY A-hyuck! (Sora looks around. Yen Sid sits in his usual chair. No one else is here.) SORA Huh? Just us? (Donald shuts the door behind them.) YEN SID The others all had important work to do. So I sent them on their way. SORA That's great. They coulda said good-bye. DONALD It's you're fault you missed them! SORA I'm here now, right? (Sora and Donald glare at each other.) YEN SID We have matters to discuss. (The trio enter an over-the-top soldier stance.) YEN SID In order to defeat Xehanort, there are allies we must gather, acting now to rouse them from their slumber. We have discussed this before, Sora. (Sora nods.) YEN SID Your Mark of Mastery Exam was conducted in the hopes that you would acquire the power to wake them. However, Xehanort nearly made you his vessel and the process stripped you of most of the power you had gained by then. I suspect you have already noticed this, correct? (Sora sighs.) DONALD AND GOOFY [UNISON] Sora... (Sora shakes it off, and stands tall.) SORA Whatever! I'll get my power back in no time! (Yen Sid nods and smiles.) YEN SID Now then, Chip and Dale are currently analyzing data that Ansem the Wise provided to Riku, which could offer us a clue to retrieving our friends' lost hearts. I have very high hopes for this data. (Yen Sid pauses for a moment.) YEN SID However, our greatest chance of stopping Xehanort's plan still lies with you, Sora. If you trust the guidance your heart gives, I know we will find all of the Guardians of Light. But first, you must regain all of the strength you have lost. Perhaps it is foolish to expect a complete recovery, but it is absolutely vital that you perfect one power- the Power of Waking, which you failed to master during your exam. However, there is someone who lost his strength and found it again- a true hero to whom you ought to pay a visit. (Sora smiles and looks excited.) YEN SID Perhaps he can point you in the right direction. (Sora salutes.) SORA Got it. DONALD Master Yen Sid... GOOFY You can count on us to take care of Sora! YEN SID I would have it no other way. I put Sora in your hands. GOOFY Oh, this is gonna be lots of fun! (Donald and Goofy stack their hands. Sora does the same.) SORA Let's go! SORA, DONALD, AND GOOFY [UNISON] Count on us! (Yen Sid nods.) [The Ocean Between - Gummi Ship] [Time of Day - N/A] (The trio is sitting around in the Gummi Ship.) GOOFY Looks like all the old highways are closed. (Sora thinks. Donald looks impatient.) SORA How are we supposed to get there now? DONALD C'mon, Sora! Which way? SORA Ummm... DONALD Hey, would you get serious? SORA I'm trying. These things take time. (Donald groans.) GOOFY "May your heart be your guidin' key." SORA Huh? What's that? GOOFY Master Yen Sid always says that, right before we go off on any of our real important adventures. SORA Really? (Sora turns to Donald.) SORA Ring a bell? (Donald shakes his head, no.) GOOFY Maybe I just imagined it. (Goofy scratches his head.) SORA "May your heart be your guiding key." Ha! (Sora stands.) SORA I've got it! (Sora summons his Keyblade, the Kingdom Key, and points it at the front window. Sora puts his hand over his heart, and the tip of the Keyblade glows. A gate opens in the Ocean Between.) DONALD AND GOOFY [UNISON] It's a gate! (Sora desummons his Keyblade, and sits back down. He grabs the ship's controls. SORA Alright! Olympus Coliseum, here we come! (Sora flies the Gummi Ship through the gate, and it closes.) "KINGDOM HEARTS III" CHAPTER TWO: Coming February 27, 2019
  11. So, I decided to do what I never do: talk about it. This is going to be a kind of review, which many of you already made or read, but I didn't, so far. I've been avoiding the internet for the past weeks and now that I've finished the game, I just wanna talk about things I really liked, things I think could be improved upon and the thinks I really didn't like. And that's it for today, I guess. Some notes before I go: I'm not a native American. I'm actually from Brazil (so yeah, I'm American, just not from the North one where English is Spoken =p), so I'm sorry if my English sucks in some parts of this review or in all of it. I only felt like sharing an opinion and so I did. I stressed it while writing but I'm going to say it again: everything above is just my humble opinion. If you end up reading all these lines, first of all thank you, really, but second, feel free to disagree and show your own point of view. I might've forgotten to say something I wanted to, so if I end up editing, I'm gonna put the new stuff in other color. Thank you for your patience and for being an awesome community. We all love this series very much, and I only wrote so many lines because I felt like you might relate to loving KH so much to the point of doing so. Tl,dr yet another review-ish.
  12. I need help. Does anyone know when we'll be able to redeem the Starlight Keyblade codes issued through Union X, or has it not been announced? I assumed that since the codes were now available that they could be redeemed right now before the game's release. I'm on Xbox, so I don't know how big of an issue this is.

    DLC

    If you're against DLC in video games this isn't the topic for you. Now that that's out of the way; What do you think we'll get as DLC in the future? I know the game isn't out yet so this is all speculation, but what do you think we could get? Keep in mind we do already have two Keyblades confirmed (although they are console preorder exclusives ) Some things I personally think could happen are New Keyblades, new Summons like Leon or Jack Skellington (or maybe returning summons like Mushu or Genie). And if I'm being really hopeful, new playable characters and maybe even a new/returning world or story.
  14. So, as I was writing my theory on the significance of the Lone Sora Chess Piece scene, something occurred to me about the final scene of the Final Battle trailer. Those figures look awfully identical, right? You would think, that since the 13 Vessels have a fragment of Xehanort's heart, they would each be of different sizes and lengths, yes? But they're not. And here is what I believe... I believe that those figures are actually If that is very much true, then some things that we've seen start making absolute sense. First of all, Vexen's introduction to the True Organization XIII. Now, I personally am unsure as to whether or not he's truly loyal to the Organization. Perhaps he's the one Demyx is carrying in that one bit where he appears to Ienzo in the TGS trailer? Regardless, Xehanort would want him in his group for one reason, and one reason only: The Replica Program. Vexen crafted two Replicas who went to greatly form a sense of self: Xion and the Riku Replica. Doubtless, the old Organization was really invested in what could be done with it, but then of course Axel destroyed him. They couldn't go further. But with Vexen now in their ranks, he can do just that. Maybe that's how the other Riku shows up? He recreates it. However, if they all do have fragments of Xehanort's heart in them, then it could potentially be possible that he could see what's in their minds, and can therefore make their knowledge his.It is then potentially possible that he can make his own Replicas of himself if he doesn't already have Vexen doing it for him. And why would he do that? Because, to quote MoM, he's always thinkin' and thinkin' underneath that bald, veiny head of his. Xehanort is known as a master planner and tactician, so it would make sense for him to have a backup plan should this new Organization fail him. And why wouldn't he? Recall that Xemnas admitted that Ansem's apprentices' original experiments with the Heartless were attempts to control the mind, and make it renounce its sense of self. And yet, despite him having 13 Seekers of Darkness, they are still rather individualistic. Examples: Xigbar still kinda antagonizes Xehanort (i.e. What now, you old coot?!") Saix still going to talk to Lea in Twilight Town, even after they've established their sides, instead probably focusing on starting the Keyblade War. Vanitas still wanting to merge with Ventus, even after having been told that becoming the X-Blade will make him whole, meaning he probably no longer believes that. And the fact that they still don't probably know the full extent of Xehanort's plans, though this was as off Re:coded, and might have changed by the time of KHIII. The bottom line is that they still retain their sense of self, and not on the level Terra-Xehanort was (though MX sent his full heart into him, but there should still be signs that his presence should be within them beside the physical yellow eyes and pointy ears.) Overall, Xehanort making Replicas to replace the True Organization should they fail is totally a valid thing he would do. It's in his character, and he would be more than willing to do it. Another hint is that in the beginning of the Final Battle trailer, we see multiple No Names floating behind him when he summons Kingdom Hearts. It made me recall that there was two Kingdom Keys present at the same time, when Roxas and Xion still existed. It would make sense that the Replicas all have copies of the No Name. (Though I'm still hoping all of the True Organization XIII members get their own Keyblades in KHIII.) Overall, this is all still speculation on my part... but I'm honestly convinced that this is what will likely be as to who those figures are.

  23. I'm probably going to get into a lot of trouble for starting this and I apologize if this thread topic has already been made elsewhere but I really want a definitive answer or at least an accepted consensus to this question: what do yellow eyes signify in Kingdom Hearts? As of recent years, the most prominent answer is that it signifies possession by Xehanort but is that the only meaning behind them? We also know the recipients of Xehanort's Heart fragments (willing or otherwise) take on other aspects of his appearance, that being his hair, his skin tone, a and his ears. But how did Xehanort gain these features? Obviously his skin and hair color are naturally his but his ears and eyes have changed as seen where younger versions of himself have rounded ears and browner eyes. Some on this site, myself included, believe that these changes are a result of deep submersion in Darkness based on the idea that the vast majority of Heartless all have yellow eyes, the only exceptions being those who wear eye/face concealing clothing, have no eyes at all, or Scar for some odd reason. Others, seemingly including Nomura himself, claim that the yellow eyes are exclusive to Xehanort and his thralls but how does that explain all of the Heartless as well as Ansem The Wise? His eyes clearly changed between his time as Science King of Radiant Garden and his time as DiZ. Has he secretly been a Xehanort this whole time? If so, why was he fighting against Xemnas and the Organization? Obviously Xehanort's plans are ridiculously circuitous but that seems to be pushing it. Finally, there is Vanitas, the Darkness of Ventus's Heart made manifest. We know now that he is allegedly one of Xehanort's vessels but has he always been one? Yes, he had the yellow eyes back in Birth By Sleep but none of Xehanort's other defining features, and Ventus's connection with Sora caused Vanitas to take on Sora's appearance instead. But as of his appearance (at least in the trailers) in Kingdom Hearts 3, Vanitas is wearing his helmet again. But why hide his face when we already know what it looks like? As a Xehanort vessel, he doesn't look like Sora anymore which means he now looks like Xehanort which also means that the eyes of his old appearance can't be from possession. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go hide in a Flame proof bunker.

  25. Hi there! Thanks for visiting my post. It seems that no one else has noticed or cared, but the new trailer contained glimpses of San Fransokyo unde the attack of Heartless such as every world, but I also noticed on the scenes with the BH6 team members that they were fighting something and I happened to recognize such things. If you look closely at the screenshots in this post you'll notice that these things are the BUGS from Re:Coded. So far it seems they are the Red, Silver and new Black and green version of them. So I was thinking... how did these bugs emerged from the Dataspace and why appeared in this world? Join me to speculate on this matter. P.S. Sorry if there was already a post I missed. Zaz!
