  1. So after watching the Final Battle Trailer, I have come to believe that there is more significance to the Sora Chess Piece being alone. If you've been avoiding news snippets like the extra stuff that we've seen at TGS, I suggest you turn back now if you want to go into KHIII fresh. As we have seen, there is going to be a part in Kingdom Hearts III where the Guardians of Light are going to get beaten, quite severely, at that. Now, here's the thing. I don't think they're going to die, necessarily, but I do think that they're going to be held captive, or some sort of purgatory. The reason I believe this is because I recall Vanitas speaking in the Keyblade Graveyard: "Only when your hopes have been broken by battle upon battle can the key to Kingdom Hearts be claimed." It seems from this, they are likely going to have their captives keep fighting, as indicated by Riku fighting Replica Riku, and Lea getting slammed with Xemnas' lasers. (Alternatively, they could all have simply been put in various states after getting beaten, like maybe out of commission, but let's assume for the sake of this topic that they're made to continue fighting. I'll explain why later.) They all get captured. The King, Riku, Lea, Kairi, Donald, Goofy, they get taken by the 13... except for Sora. Because of Riku, he manages to escape. He's distressed about it. As we've seen in the 30 second spot, he's only ever fought alongside his friends, but he's never had to do it alone. He feels he CAN'T do it alone. But Riku reassures him. "Sora, you don't believe that. I know you don't." After what happens in the Graveyard goes down for the first time, Sora is left alone. He has to find a way to save everyone on his own. He probably still feels like he can't do it... until a pep talk from a certain best buddy, home skilly biscuit, home slice for life: Chirithy! (That's what I call him, haha) There's probably more to it and more people involved than that, but Chirithy does ask Sora if he knows how to bring back a heart after it's lost. Maybe he learns it there? After that, Sora resolves to continue where they left off: find more Guardians of Light to help save his friends. How does he start? By finding a way to the Realm of Darkness to save Aqua. There have been various cutscenes in the trailers where, oddly enough, we see Sora alone when talking to some of the Darknesses. Vanitas, Young Xehanort. I believe at this point in those times, we're playing as Sora, and he's trying to find a way into the Realm of Darkness. And eventually he does. And as we've clearly seen in the TGS footage, Sora fights Aqua alone. Perhaps this is why? Now, granted, Aqua's scenario may indeed involve the Master's Defender, and I have no sure proof to suggest that it is after he gets the Master's Defender is when they go save Aqua. Alternatively, though, there's also no concrete proof supporting the fact that it is when he gets the Master's Defender is when he goes for Aqua. Anyway, he restores Aqua, and then the next order of business is saving Ven. I like to believe that Vanitas probably still feels Ventus and Sora though his connection to Ventus' heart, and likely surmises what Sora's trying to do. As of the Final Battle trailer, we can see that it seems that Vanitas doesn't really care for Xehanort's plot much. He's mainly trying to merge Ventus' heart with his again. Maybe he lets Xehanort know, or decides to go on his own, and get the heart back himself. Cue them in Castle Oblivion/Land of Departure, trying to get Ventus back, and Vanitas shows up. Aqua hold him off, while Sora dives into Ven's heart. Not sure how this portion will end, but I have a feeling it'll end with my long-awaited showdown between Sora and Vanitas, the later of whom may not survive the fight. Perhaps one of the Darknesses takes Ven while this happens. Maybe he has his heart back, but it's taking him a while to wake up due to how long he's been a sleep. A slow reboot so to speak. They go back to the Keyblade Graveyard, and end up confronting Terra-Xehanort. How he is there, I don't know. Is he one of the Darknesses? I do not know. What I do know is that Sora and Ventus were chained up by dark versions of the Lingering Will chain technique in the Final Battle trailer. Terra-Xehanort has them, but then they're saved by the Lingering Will, which could lead to Terra being saved. If that is the case, he now has 4 Lights to fight the Darknesses. Him, Ven, Aqua, and Terra. I also believe Roxas will be fighting for the Lights as well. Perhaps the whole thing with Roxas takes up a good chunk of the story in the meanwhile. He gets taken out of Simulated Twilight Town, has to get checked up on by Ansem the Wise and Ienzo, and then shows up later to save Lea. He could probably save him from Xemnas' ultimate attack, and point the Kingdom Key at him, before summoning his other Keyblade, and shifting them to Oblivion and Oathkeeper like he did at the end of 358/2 Days. He swipes at Xemnas, and then removes his hood like at the end of the TGS trailer. I also think Sora might recruit Xion and Namine, but I have no proof nor any explanations as to how he will do so. All I know is that if he succeeds, there will be a new group of Seven Lights. Sora. Aqua. Ventus. Terra. Roxas. Xion. Namine. To conclude, I really hope this theory turns out to be true, though I have to stress again this is all merely speculation on my part. Still, it makes for a great character development arc for Sora, that would only have him engaging in a venture worthy of a Keyblade Master. He has always said his friends were his power, and he theirs... Now it's time for him to prove it.
  2. 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.
  3. So, as I've scrolled through forums both on here and other websites, I've noticed that a lot of people are overlooking something since the reveal of the New Seven Hearts of Light. That is, the fact that whomever the lights may be, their origin may very well include whatever worlds we're going to get next. So, to elaborate, let's look at the worlds we have currently. Olympus Coliseum. (Can be overlooked, though, considering that it's most likely the first level.) Twilight Town. (Interesting bit here I'll comment further down.) Kingdom of Corona. Toy Box. Monstropolis. Classic Kingdom. (I've heard them refer to this as a world in several interviews, but since they're really just mini-games, I suppose this can be overlooked as well.) Arendelle. The Caribbean. Radiant Garden. (Still up in the air depending on the plot and whether or not we actually go there and move in that world.) San Fransokyo. (We know this is for sure confirmed, we just haven't seen gameplay yet.) Now, out of all these worlds, there are several characters that we have seen that are considered as candidates for the New Seven Hearts. Of course, we know that Kairi is still one of them, so then we would actually need SIX new characters to take the place of the other Princesses. Now, I will present a list of characters that which are likely candidates of the New Seven, and explain why. Kairi - Obviously, it has been mostly confirmed through interviews that she is considered still a Princess of Heart. Since she is also one of the Seven Guardians of Light, it also gives her placement as one of the Seven with that much more significance. Rapunzel - Now, this one is interesting, because she is actually one of our partners for KHIII. However, Nomura has stated KHIII will be dark, and I can think of nothing darker than having one of our partners permanently taken from our party. Of course, then again, perhaps the Thirteen Darkness can end up being thwarted form taking them before Sora, Donald, and Goofy intervene, perhaps just being satisfied with knowing who they are, and threatening Sora to find their Seven Guardians before they come back and take them. Either way, considering Rapunzel's affinity to light, considering the nature of her hair being due to the magic flower, I can see her definitely having a heart pure enough to b of the Seven. Boo - I mean, come on. A little girl, unafraid (mostly) of monsters? I definitely think she is one of the more overlooked characters as candidates for one of the New Seven Hearts of Light. Also, going back to the underlying dark theme of this game, what's more messed up than kidnapping a little girl to serve your dark ends? Xehanort has been shown to be willing to do anything to see his ambitions through, and will use whomever he needs to do it. I feel like I'm on the mark with this one. Anna and/or Elsa - This one looks very obvious on the surface, but since there's still not enough clarification on Squeenix's part, some explanation should be made. Anna is a very obvious candidate, given her very open, cheerful disposition, which seems to lead her into the frozen darkness that has become Arendelle. Elsa also has a light within, but it's hidden within her darkness. Whether that darkness is indeed hers and not something else - and if she in fact actually has no darkness in her whatsoever - remains to be seen. Perhaps it's the same case with Cinderella in Birth by Sleep, and her love for Anna will reveal her pure heart of light. Now then, let's get on to those who could potentially be candidates. That is to say, these are people who are not as likely to be one of the New Seven Hearts, but could potentially be. Elizabeth Swann - Now, I myself don't fully subscribe to this possibility, but considering this is a list of people who are not as likely, but could potentially be, I might as well make the argument. Now, what do we know about Elizabeth? She's brave, daring, proper, loyal, and intelligent. Aspects that are shown in most of the Princesses. And she's certainly courageous enough to fight against the East India Trading Company and Davy Jones. However, does that willingness to actually kill enemies ( though it will likely just be Luxord, his Nobodies, and the Heartless to keep it PG or close to PG-13) present darkness in her heart? If not that, then how about the fact that she left Jack to the Kraken, and got him sent to Davy Jones' Locker? Would that mean she has darkness in her heart? Probably, but we'll have to wait and see. Honey Lemon - Now, I know a lot of these Princesses tend to be similar in that they're positive, cheerful, and adventurous. While the first two certainly count here, one ought to remember that Honey really didn't come up with the idea to be a superhero herself. She did it believing it would help Hiro come to terms with Tadashi's passing, and later on bringing justice to him. This indicates that she also has a sense of justice, and is also very intelligent, as seen as her knowledge in chemistry and alchemy. She is also very observant, which can grow tenfold around the darkness, as most other Princesses can. Being a Princess of Heart could definitely up her repertoire, as well as be very well deserved. Now for my last potential Princess, we'll be looking at a character that has already been introduced, but is still often overlooked due to their position as a supporting character. Some of you might know where I'm going with this if you've read this far. Some of you might believe this, or think it's complete baloney. Either way, my last prediction for the New Seven Hearts of Light is... Olette - Yes, the third member of the Twilight Trio (not to be confused with the Sea-Salt Trio). She has been a supporting character for as long as Kingdom Hearts II, and has been in that role ever since. So what do we know about her? She's smart and responsible, as evident by her constant reminders of doing the summer homework. She is also very loyal to all her friends, both in the digital Twilight Town during the Struggle, and in 358/2 Days when Hayner accused Pence of dropping his ice cream. She's kind, romantic, and adventurous, as seen towards the end of KHII when checking the Abandoned Manor, as well as in Digital Twilight Town during the Seven Wonders Case. She certainly has the makings of one, but is there definitive proof? Not really, but... did you guys notice that during the Square Enix Showcase Trailer, she wasn't present in that shot inside Ansem's Lab? Could she have already been taken by Xehanort?... Maybe. We'll have to wait and see.If you've read this far, you're probably wondering, "That's great, Da-Awesom-One, but what does this have to do with the World List?" Well, assuming Olette really isn't one of the new Lights, I would wager that at least four New Seven Hearts of Light have been revealed shown thus far, which includes Kairi, even though the rest have yet to be confirmed. Which means 3 of the new 6 have been shown in some capacity. That means we still have at least 3 more New Lights to be shown. However, if one of the new Lights is indeed from San Fransokyo - maybe Honey or whoever Nomura chooses - then that would mean there are two worlds with two New Hearts of Light that have yet to be shown. Of course, that doesn't mean there will on​ly be two more extra worlds to be revealed, be we at least know two of them will have a Princess. With all that said, the next new worlds would have to be worlds from before Big Hero 6's release, since we know from interviews that he chose the worlds from before that frame. So any movies that ladies that embody any of the qualities that are present in Princesses of Heart are suspect in being in Kingdom Hearts III. So that's my theory, guys. What are your choices for the New Seven Hearts of Light? What worlds do you think will be revealed next, and who is the Princess of that respective world? I'd like to hear your opinions. Thanks for reading!
  4. So I have been thinking alot about the Rapunzel world lately and I think I know exactly how the story In this world will happen. If I am right you can send me a cookie in a year (hopefully just a year) so here it goes, we start the level by arriving at rapunzels tower not knowing were they are Sora and his friends decide to look inside the tower, there we find mother Gothel how just has found out that rapunzel is gone. Being mother gothel she tells us "oh Pleaaaassse help me my dearest daughter is gone help me! I am just a poor loving mother" our heros than go into the woods and follow rapunzel long hair that is like a red...well yellow line. After fighting countless heartless we find Rapunzel and Eugene. Rapunzel tells us about her dream, hearing how important it is for her to see the floating lights the gang tells her that they will help her to get to the city and protect her from the heartless. Eugene could than become a Party member as I have no clue how they would pull off Rapunzel. We than would also see some of mother gothels attemps to stop us by using the heartless. while we travel with her she tells us about her live inside the tower and sora begins to questions mother gothels true motives. They arrive in the city and than have to defend it from more attacking heartless. When the it begins to get dark the three decide to leave eugene and Rapunzel alone and watch the lights somewhere else. Than mother gothel kidnaps Rapunzel and ties eugene to the boat. The next morning we help him get out of Prison, he tells us that he is a thieve and stole the crown. We than go and save rapunzel and the level ends with mother gothel as the endboss atleast I hope we can fight her personaly instead of fighting some heartless and than see her die in a cutscene because this woman evil incarnate and I want the satisfaction to punch her in the face! Than Sora and his friends leave having learned a very important lesson not everyone who is close to you has good intentions, evil can wear a mask (which ties into the whole Xehanort birth by sleep story) so what do you think? Could this be The exact Plot of this level? Will we look back on this thread when KH3 comes out and be amazed how accurate it is? Let me hear it.
  5. Hey there everyone, how's it going!? So then, as you all know, it's been a good, long while, about 9 months, give or take, since we were bombarded with Kingdom Hearts III news at every turn! And well, ever since then, things have been a little quiet, so I decided to bring up this topic from an interview with Nomura from last year! So, last year, Nomura stated that he had already decided on a release date for Kingdom Hearts III, but that he couldn't announce it yet! And well, ever since then, I've been wondering about it, ya know? I mean, he probably wouldn't have decided on a release date if the game was still way too far off for us! So I'm just thinking that he's waiting for the right time to give us said release date, and I think it could be this year! At the beginning of this year, Nomura mentioned that Kingdom Hearts III is in an important stage of development, and that could very well mean that a lot more is being done this year as we speak! I think that perhaps this year we'll get the release date for the game, or at the very least, a release window! E3 sounds like a reasonable place to make the announcement, but I could also see the release date being revealed at the Tokyo Game Show, or perhaps even Jump Festa, ya know? But hey, this is all just speculation! So what do you think? Could we get a "Coming 2017" release window this year? And if so, do you think it'll be at E3, the Tokyo Game Show, or Jump Festa?
  6. Given that there's going to be a lot of new areas in the Olympus world,.it makes me wonder what the world's stotyline will be. For all intents and purposes I can say we've used all of the Hercules plot. I say this, even though it's been sorta weird with the progression of events from movie to game. Anyway, knowing that the area from the new KH3 screen is the "heaven" segment of Olympus, can we expect a post story plotline like Big Hero 6. Nomura's been wanting to do a full Olympus for a while. I think.this.could be.interesting. Or the awkward story progression could continue with.the world replicating the very end of the movie and other segments missed in other games (e.g cyclops).
  7. Okay..Hi guys its my first time so please be gentle . ---->WARNING.....HYPE...and SPECULATION is ahead<------ you have been warned Anyways i have some speculation and mind you this is just pure speculation! but i haven't seen this theory around for a while and mine is a bit different so hear me out. Back in E3 2015 Square said in interviews that they had an internal release date set for KH3. now normally when a company does this it means that they have a solid window in mind for release, so basically we all know what I'm talking bout. The Kingdom Hearts 3 Calendar from the young Eraqus scene in the tangled announcement trailer. Anyways i was re-watching that trailer today when an idea hit me. The trailer was about tangled and the other new worlds ...and about how tangled and olympus would be a world in KH3..... so what if? just maybe that had something to with the calendar....i mean when you think about it...this is a prepared cutscene trailer...they don't just throw in things for no reason take the chess board for example. anyways the calendar behind Eraqus seems out of place, so once again ill list the possible dates regarding the calendar for the next 5 years an analyze them. Lets start with the obvious ones Japan & United States Calendar December 2016 - unlikely - however if they time it right they can triple their sales by releasing in december March 2018 - Possibly - March is a good time to release games as many developers do August 2019 - D23 happens around this time and disney products are really hyped so its not completely unlikely October 2020 - unless they are going for a halloween based release very unlikely Now lets throw in a twist. Germany & Greece Calendar - Tangled is based on german tale of Rapunzel. Hercules is based on greek tale of Herakels. January 2016 - Christmas just ended and Gamers are possibly not interested in new IP's July - 2016 - Again also unlikely this is known as a dead period in gaming. However this means no competition December 2017 - Same as above March 2019 - march is a great time to release games May - 2020 - may is ok....but 5 years from now seems a stretch. Anyways thank you for taking the time to read and view this. I hope you find my analysis post regarding tangled and hercules involvement in the trailer If not feel free to leave hate. it makes me laugh...some times ! Edit - Keep in mind that an internal release date window is something that is told only to investors and corporate executives.so an internal release window can be 2 -3 years into the future. thats why i pulled the calendar up to 2020
  8. I've come up with this theory and I've been itching to share it. I decided to put it up here on KH13 because the social websites I put it up in don't have a lot of KH fans to discuss it with. Also my first post on this website, so please be nice ;v; Note: This theory is not spoiler free. It contains spoilers for all the Kingdom Hearts games so if you haven't played it yet and don't want to be spoiled, it is recommended you don't continue on. Everyone knows how cheerful Sora can be. In situations where it’s clearly time to be serious, he goofs off without a care in the world. This has some fans annoyed out of their wits and sometimes they call him a Mickey clone. I tend to agree with how childish Sora can be sometimes, even when the situation is really serious (even though he is my favorite character), but recently I have come up with a theory will explain why he is so ‘childish’. He may not even be truly childish at all. Like a regular person, Sora has his own personal darkness. His darkness is rarely shown in the series and is sometimes overlooked. He is not a perfect person; he has a light and dark side. Most of the time, Sora chooses to think positively instead of negatively. Rarely seen truly sad or angry, it’s hard to think that Sora even has a negative point of view. However, just because he acts and sees everything positively doesn't mean that the negative view of things doesn’t exist to him. It still does, but he avoids it. Sora hates the darkness. It’s done so many bad things to him. Sora dislikes people who use darkness, but he acknowledges it to a certain point. That’s why Sora doesn’t take selfish and cowardice actions easy. He berates anyone who was once selfish, one example being Iago in Aladdin’s world. It took him quite a long time to trust Iago, but is willing to forgive to an extent anyone if they helped him (i.e. Maleficent, Ansem --actually Riku in KH2 when he saved Kairi--, etc). Sora doesn't like the people who use darkness and considers it to be ‘evil’, though he seems to have admitted (not really overcoming it; he simply acknowledged that he has darkness in his heart) that the “darkness had gotten to [him] too." Before I delve any further into where I’m getting at, I’m going to make a statement: Sora has never overcome/conquered his own personal darkness on his own or really by his own will. Unlike Riku, who had to struggle with the darkness in him for so long before finally overcoming it with light in KH3D (on his own), Sora always needed some form of help or events to get over his darkness. When Sora becomes a Heartless in KH1, the only reason he came back is because Kairi wished it to. Although Roxas is not technically an evil Sora, when merging with Roxas (first time I thought he was sora Sora’s evil side), Roxas only merged with Sora out of his own will. In KH3D, he was tempted by the new Organization 13 and finally gave in. He was only saved by the darkness by Riku. It irks me, it really does, that when I realize it. Noruma engineered almost everything so that whatever Sora does, it can be explained because of someone else linked to him and that he can be considered ‘not really special’ at all. Sora is using Ventus’ fighting style (not really, Sora has his own style, I'm just mimicking the people who think it's true)! He can’t really wield a keyblade either! It’s Ventus’! Sora can’t really duel wield, that’s really because of Roxas (or whatever, duel wielding originates from)! The keyblade Sora uses is not his! It’s Riku’s! He also can’t pass the Mastery Exam because he got kidnapped! Sora’s actually not special at all! Dangit Noruma, toss Sora a freakin’ bone already. Let him do something cool that isn’t because of someone else. Anyways, I wanted to get this idea out. To be honest, Sora finally overcoming darkness on his own seems like a plot element in KH3. Now back to my theory, most of the time, negative thinking can be considered a part of darkness. Think too negatively all the time, you’ll spiral into depression or something like that. From personal experience, depression is a very dark part of your life. When someone is pessimistic, we tend to encourage that person to be optimistic and such. Donald and Goofy give this advice to Sora when they try to get him to come with them to find the king. Specifically, they said “No Frowning, No sad faces.” Sora seemed to have taken this to heart. The sadder and more emotionally disturbed you are, the happier you should be. When Sora feels a great amount of negative emotions, his mindset automatically clicks to a positive thought so he won’t have to deal with it. More specifically, he doesn’t want to deal with the darkness that comes with negative emotions. So basically, when Sora is expected to react negatively, but reacts positively (the example I used is in KH1 when he’s supposedly depressed from losing his world and then suddenly smiles like some deranged lunatic) he’s really overacting so he won’t feel so bad and that he avoids the darkness. They say that if you’re really good at lying, you’ll be able to convince yourself of the lie. In truth, Sora does feel broken and sad in times where it seems like he’s not, but he’s trying to protect himself by acting happy. Sora’s lying to himself about how he feels. DiZ compares Sora’s light to an innocent child, and what to children do when they encounter something they don’t like (or afraid of)? They avoid it. When I was young, I didn’t like TinTin (I like it now though because of the 2011 movie), and I ended up avoiding everything TinTin related growing up because I was disturbed by one episode when I was younger. Like me, Sora had bas experienced from Darkness from Ansem (Xehenort’s Heartless) and has developed something real strong against it. So in reality, Sora knows the seriousness of the situation and switches his perspective accordingly so he can fabricate being happy; to keep the darkness away. He only vents his anger/sadness in small outbursts when it’s too much for him. Maybe he (subconsciously?) knows that if he is too negative, the darkness in his heart would take over in a moment’s notice. When Sora was about to stab himself with the keyblade, he smiles, not because he’s happy, because he’s really sad, probably afraid. The real reason why Sora is so ‘childish’ and so darn happy all the time is so that he can protect himself from the darkness. Sora can’t overcome his darkness, so he tries everything he can to make sure to avoid the darkness at all cost. The reason why in KH3D, he reverts to being super childish is because he’s in a lot of pain. Disturbed by the New Orgs’s weird questions, he tries to brush it off and plays off as childish person so he can deal with it with how scared/troubled he feels. When he was forced into a dream within a dream (or whatever happened that caused Sora end up in the inception limbo), he saw so many visions of Roxas, Namine, Xion, Ventus, Terra, Aqua. So many emotions he can’t understand. The pain from those connected. Sora doesn’t want the darkness to get to him. He literally describes the feeling of his heart ‘aching’ and Sora being Sora decides it’s time to remain positive. He clings onto his friendships and pushes forward, but still falls in darkness away because it was a part of Xehenort’s plan. Later after he is saved, he wasn’t the least bit bummed out that he failed the Mark of Mastery Exam. Why is that? I mean I’m pretty sure, no matter how positive you are, you would at feel at least a tad bit discouraged or bummed out when you fail something you put your heart and soul into. I was expecting Sora to be a little sad or something, but no, he’s just explodes in naïve happiness over the fact that Riku had succeeded. If my theory is put into play, Sora’s actually overreacting because he feels bad. He’s happy for Riku and decides to emphasize that emotion so he can drown out the bad emotions he’s feeling. He actually feels really sad, perhaps guilty for making him put his best friend through thick and thin for him. It’s evident because Sora immediately departs for another journey. I’m not sure whether or not he’s thanking the Dream Eaters or training, but Donald and Goofy state that he has been gone for a long time despite the fact that Sora said that he wouldn’t be gone for long. I believe he’s training or such, to make up for failing the Mark of Mastery Exam. Anyways, as many instances proven to us, running from darkness doesn’t make things the least bit better. When Riku tries to avoid darkness, it only gets worse until he manages to conquer it with light. Sora has been doing this emotional mechanism for a long time now and running from darkness will only work for so long. It’s a possibility that Sora is going to give into the dark in KH3. It may even be possible for Sora to be ineligible to be a Guardian of Light. After all, Xehenort has his eyes set on Sora as a new vessel and it doesn’t seem like he’s the type to give up that easily. The plot twist seems right up Noruma’s alley and he’s clearly obsessed with trying to prove that Sora’s just a normal kid (technically a young man since he’s about 18 in KH3). In one interview, he says this: Read the Article here: http://www.khinsider.com/news/A-Look-Back-Director-s-Secret-Report-XIII-4883 When I read this, I got really excited The translation for the report had just come up about two months ago (I was a l late reading it, ;v; ) I’ve always seemed curious to why Sora’s turning into a heartless has been somewhat ‘overlooked’ since it’s appearance. Clearly Noruma has something planned for Sora’s darkness. Since it's still an unresolved issue, the problem still persists. It wouldn’t be a surprise to me if Sora was actually a Seeker of Darkness rather than a Guardian of Light. Of course, this was said roughly 8 years ago and it could be referring to Sora’s fall in darkness in KH3D; however, I believe that this is a crucial plot element to KH3. A large portion of the SoD (Seekers of Darkness), are unknown. It’s hard to believe that Xehenort will not waste such an opportunity as Sora. It’s probably quite difficult to round up the correct vessels and Xehenort had to resort to time travel to get the remaining vessels. There was a reason why Xehenort decided that Sora was a suitable vessel. Although it's been stated that he merely 'move down the list', there is a reason why Sora was on the list in the first place. Both Roxas and Riku had become inadequate vessels because they both managed to overcome their darkness. Sora still hasn't and thus why Xehenort had put him on the list of potential candidates. It would be strange of Xehenort if he didn’t try to ‘recruit’ Sora when he’s at his weakest in KH3. There has been some speculation regarding whether or not Sora will lose the ability to lose his keyblade when he awakens Ventus by giving back his heart. Noruma seems to thrive on proving Sora is just normal (HE IS CLEARLY NOT :U) . It certainly seems like a strong possibility and it would open up a chance for Sora to step into darkness. Without a keyblade and the loss of the connections to his heart (He would've saved most everyone by then), he would be ‘normal’ again (except that he can probably do magic with or without the keyblade). Discouraged that he was no longer of ‘importance’ and that he was unable to do anything might drive him over the edge and into darkness. I expect some conflict with Sora’s darkness in KH3 or I will be very upset. Edit: There's a counter-argument against the fact that Sora will lose his ability to wield when giving back Ventus' heart. This is because if Ventus is the true source of Sora's keyblading abilities then it should've been lost with Roxas when Sora turned into a Heartless in KH1. Other people claim that the reason behind this because Ventus is still out of commission and did not need the keyblade. Technically, Roxas is tethered to Sora so even if Ventus went with Roxas, supposedly, the ability to wield will still be distributed through both of them; mainly because Sora and Roxas were using the same two keyblades at the same time during CoM and Days. But hey, that’s just a theory... A Game KH Theory! Thanks for reading! There's bound to be some loopholes or contradictions in this theory and this is purely speculation concerning Sora's childish attitude and such. If ya find something contradictory or something, please tell me. I want to revise this theory to the very best I also love to discuss this further. I've also never played CoM (the card fighting system screwed me over), Coded, and BBS so there might be some important cut scenes I have missed. I only got my information from this games via the internet. So yea thanks again for reading my theory :biggrin:
  9. Hey there everyone, how's it going!? So then, as we are all very well aware, the hype for Kingdom Hearts III is at an all time sky high! I mean seriously, good God, the hype is stronger now than it has ever been! So then, with hype in mind, here's a topic so you can all think about! You see, today I had this thought regarding Kingdom Hearts III's appearances at E3. You know how Square revealed KHIII back in E3 2013? Well, I've been thinking...Square has been slowly playing their hand with this neat little strategy, and this is what said strategy is, in my opinion! E3 2013: We get the reveal trailer. E3 2014: We get a teaser. E3 2015: We get a gameplay trailer. E3 2016: We could possibly get a story trailer. E3 2017: We could possibly get a release date trailer, and the release date would end up being for at least November or December of 2017, and hopefully, the game would release worldwide at the same day! The last two are obviously just speculation, but think about it! Slowly but surely, KHIII has been showed to us in small bits! Just wait until we get the bigger picture! Gahhh, just thinking about this gets my mind racing! And if the game came out in 2017, it would make sense, since as I have said many times before, 2017 marks the Kingdom Hearts series 15th Anniversary, and what better way to celebrate than releasing Kingdom Hearts III? And when you think about it, the development cycle for KHIII would have lodged in a four year period of 2013 to 2017! As I said, this is all speculation, but I'm thinking that this is Square's strategy! So, what do you think? Is it possible that in the next two years we'll get said trailers I mentioned at E3? Also worthy to note, we don't have to assume that KH3 won't show up in future E3's, considering that it's appeared in every E3 since 2013, so we should all keep our eyes on future E3's, God willing we're alive to see them, which I know we will!
  10. With Chikao Ōtsuka gone and Leonard Nimoy hospitalized, both voice actors for Master Xehanort will have to be replaced. Now since i know the voice acting auditions take time to do it will be a while before we get a confirmed new voice actor for Xehanort. now i have thought about this a lot and think that it may postpone Nomura's Intended release date for the game, I have a Speculation that the Game may be released Late 2016 early 2017. I think this mainly because of the voice acting auditions, these take from hours to days to weeks to months the be completed. And if it comes to that Japans release date will be pushed back farther and farther. Now for North America we have the luxury of having the voice actor - Leonard Nimoy - still around but hospitalized, if his conditions get any worse and he, and lets hope not, dies we would have to replace him but it may take even longer to produce the game. tell me what you guys think. do you think it will be postponed, pushed back, or stopped?
  11. If you are a zelda fan and like youtube videos about Zelda U theories, these are the videos for you. These two videos go alongside each other so the first link is part one and the other one is part 2.
  12. Considering the fact that Yen Sid de-agified Riku and Sora so they could ''Learn the proper way from scratch'' it makes me assume he will do the same thing for her. What do you think?
  13. Apparently, Sega is thinking of working on a project diva title for next gen http://gematsu.com/2014/01/hatsune-miku-project-lead-series-coming-ps4 I imagine it would be similar in look/feel to this
  14. SRK'S Clothes tend to follow a formula, the new KH3 outfits, will most likely be in these colours, with a similar type of design. Sora's clothing colours Blue, Red, Yellow, White, Black Kairi's clothing colours Blue, Purple, Yellow, White, Black, Pink Riku's clothing colours Blue, Light Blue, Yellow, White Black So pretty much, they're most likely to be in these colours again. Although, who knows with Nomura...He might mix it up Riku and Kairi have never worn clothes that cover their shoulders. Just saying (Organisation coat being the exception, of course)
  15. First, let me clarify that I consider the beginning of the KH games to be everything before the point when you can freely travel between worlds. Some of my thoughts: Opening/Cutscenes For the "Summary Music Video" I honestly would love a 6min+ song with lyrics and a video highlighting moments from every KH game except KH3. Then, after you beat the game you unlock a longer version including highlights of KH3. Of course it would be hard to make a good song that long but it's possible. For Cutscenes, I wouldn't mind some long ones in the beginning as long as they're spaced out and there is at least twice as much gameplay for every cutscene. Tutorials/Easy part Most people(including myself) would like Kairi and Lea to be playable for when we are being taught the controls. I think a flashback sequence where we play as young Eraqus and Xehanort would be good to go along with that teaser shown earlier. Even before all that we could possibly be set into the shoes of an entirely new original character(maybe an acquaintance of someone in the old or new Org XIII) so that we get that same sense of wonder as we did playing as Roxas in KH2. Also, I wouldn't mind there being a big gap before we first play as Sora. As the beginning of the game will have less battles, they should have characters speaking important dialogue while your controlling a character in order to cut down on cutscenes. What do you guys think? Should the opening song be super short? Should we get to play as Sora right at the start? Should sea salt ice cream replace potions? Give me any of your thoughts on this.
  16. It's doing my head in. I keep wondering. What if Kairi remembers the events of CoM from Namine's perspective? I was thinking, If Roxas could share his memories with Sora, there's no reason why Namine couldn't do the same. Also.. Will Sora & Kairi find out everything about the whole freaking situation of Namine/Xion/Ven/Roxas/heartsnshit etc?
  17. So I was thinking about everything that Xehanort said in DDD, and then it occured to me...... 7 members of Light...... 13 members of Darkness......... The 7 Lights all have Keyblades, but the 13 Darknesses do not. YET. You cannot have a Keyblade War if only half the participants have Keyblades, can you? That would be an unfair match. Master Xehanort and young Xehanort have theirs, but doesn't that mean that the others: Xigbar, Saix, Xemnas, Ansem SoD, and etc. will eventually have to have Keyblades of their own? And with that being said, will Xemnas fight with two like Roxas? That would be quite a battle wouldn't it? I know it would be strange seeing Ansem SoD with a Keyblade since he already has that large creepy thing to do the fighting for him, but is it me, or is that thing not as powerful as it used to be? At the end of DDD, Donald and Goofy crashed into him, and that was enough to make him drop Riku and Mickey. Again, it's all just speculation....but I think that if Lea/Axel could go from two Chakrams to a Keyblade, then someone like Xigbar could also go from two guns to a Keyblade. Not to mention that the way Saix holds his Claymore is very similar to the way Ventus holds his Keyblade.
