  1. A new Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind trailer has dropped today during Sony's final State of Play for the year, and the amount of content here is beyond what any of us were expecting! You can watch the trailer below: To start things off, we have Riku talking to the returning Radiant Garden Restoration Committee! This scene is taking place in Merlin's house from Kingdom Hearts II. Aerith, Yuffie and Leon are present in this scene with Aerith having voiced dialogue. Her voice actress seems to be different than the one who voiced her in Kingdom Hearts II. Aerith remarks how they're all still able to remember Sora so he must still be around. Riku however, cuts in and says that they haven't been able to find Sora with there being no available hints. Judging from the context of this scene, this has to be taking place after the events of the main game. This scene is most likely occurring after Sora used the power of waking to save Kairi. Also of note is that Yuffie, Leon and Aerith are all sporting the same attire they wore during Kingdom Hearts II. Unfortunately, there's no word yet on if Cid, Cloud, or Sephiroth, or other Final Fantasy characters will appear, but we shouldn't rule them out, seeing as this addition seems to be a response to fan demand. Next up, we have a very brief scene of Sora being present in Ventus's Station of Awakening, which suddenly erupts with darkness. After being enveloped in said darkness, Sora comes face to face with a recolored Dark Inferno in the Keyblade Graveyard. There's little to comment on in this scene due to its extreme brevity. At the very least, this does seem to be an optional boss of some sort. If it is in fact an optional boss, this recolored form will likely alter its attack patterns or strengthen the effects of its existing ones. Based on the description of the trailer, Sora is "tracing" the guardians' hearts. Seeing that he was at Ventus's Station of Awakening, could the Dark Inferno be related to Ventus? The next scene is rather heartbreaking, as it shows Aqua staring in horror at a plethora of Anti-Aquas charging at her. Sora is in this scene, and realizes the "fear and despair that Aqua feels." Sora seems to observing this scene from the future, with the bright outline surrounding his body suggesting that he is some sort of phantom who is unable to interact. This has to be taking place after the main story, seeing that Sora seems to be observing this event after the fact. The point of reference here is back during the first initial timeline of the Keyblade Graveyard before everyone died. During that scene, Aqua gave up and perished after surrendering herself to the incessant swarm of heartless. This scene here of Sora seeing it all from Aqua's view, puts it into perspective just how horrific her time in the Realm of Darkness was. The trauma and pain she endured there likely affected her mentality. Her rescue from the Realm of Darkness wasn't completely stainless since she has definitely been corrupted by it. We can not say to what extent, but it certainly perturbed her in more ways than one. This next scene has Sora confronting Terra-Xehanort at the Keyblade Graveyard. Soon after, the guardian grabs Sora whilst Terra-Xehanort states "Seeing that you have also taken the forbidden path, you too must be ready to make the ultimate sacrifice." This line is likely referring to Sora using the power of waking to rewrite the events during the first Keyblade Graveyard battle. This can also refer to him "tracing" the guardians' hearts. If this is the case, then Terra-Xehanort referencing that must mean that this must take place after the main story in some way. The placement of this scene is puzzling, but we'll find out more during release. This next portion of the trailer is our first gameplay segment, showcasing a brand new battle against Xehanort's vessels with every guardian of light minus Sora and Kairi. This seems to be story based battle taking place during the main story but its exact placement is unknown. Xehanort's vessels being here instead of against Sora in Scala ad Caelum is puzzling. The area this fight is taking place in is the Keyblade Graveyard, going off of the command window at the bottom left. This fight looks extremely eccentric with everyone teaming up and huddling together. Keyholes are littered everywhere and the darkness-infused Kingdom Hearts is hanging in the sky, so while the context of this scene is a little intriguing, the actual battle itself looks incredibly exciting. Riku and Xion are shown slashing a Xehanort vessel each, with Ventus and Roxas attacking with a gust of wind and rays of light respectively. The command window shows "Attack" as well as "Reflega", so this fight looks somewhat akin to the way the Raging Vulture in the Carribean was fought. Going frame by frame, there are some situation commands that pop up. "Twisted Counter" for Xion, "Storm Rider" for Ventus and "Miracle Hour" for Roxas. Albeit, the way everything here is structured does look different, and this might just be a small cinematic part of the fight, but the timing aspect of using Reflega and Attack seems similar to the Raging Vulture battle. The scenery of being above the clouds is also a rather enticing setpiece. We have another quick story scene, with this one showing off more of the mysterious conversation taking place between Luxord and Xigbar in Olympus. Luxord is asking for clarification on "the box", which is obviously the fabled Black Box we've seen discussed in Kingdom Hearts III numerous times already. Xigbar looks a tad pensive in this scene, so him prompting this conversation shows that he is rather desperate for some motive of his. What that motive is? We do not know. It could certainly be related to the Foretellers and the Master of Masters but the specificity of the box's importance is also beyond us. Next up is another very brief scene, with this one showing Demyx confronting Riku at the Keyblade Graveyard. Since the empty replica is still on the ground, this has to be taking place before Namine got her body back, but we have little to go off of besides that one detail. We never see the replica actually taken in the vanilla game, so it being there doesn't specify any of the numerous times it could be taking place during. Riku recalls that Demyx is one of the Organization members and summons his Keyblade, Braveheart, to his side. The scene cuts there. There isn't much to gather from that scene other than Demyx being relevant again in some way. We then see a series of battles against the True Organization XIII. Firstly is Terra-Xehanort, who summons his guardian to slam on the ground and cause several spikes to spawn. Afterwards, we have Xemnas performing an air combo on Sora with dashes and his saber. Then, there is Riku Replica, who slams Sora down to the ground with a shockwave along with several mines surrounding the two. Ansem Seeker of Darkness's fight is shown next. The arena is fittingly coated in darkness with two large spherical orbs of darkness before either of his sides. A couple of projectile blasts are sent Sora's way. Larxene is shown next, with her agility being shown in full force. Sora blocks her swipes resulting from her quick dashes. Lastly, we have Xemnas once again, with him now firing off a barrage of lasers, in an identical manner to how he did during the final boss battle of Kingdom Hearts II. There is quite a bit to see here, but the extreme quickness of each of these scenes shows off too little to be carefully scrutinized. The command window shows the Nobody emblem protruding on both ends of the word 'Command'. This area is seeming like one specifically made for these Organization battles. We have a story scene next with Sora shooting a beam of light towards Riku's Station of Awakening. One interesting aspect of note here is how this is young Riku and not the older version currently in Kingdom Hearts III. There's a possibility that this could be the new Riku Replica introduced in Kingdom Hearts III, or this could be some element of time travel to the era of Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, seeing as an image of Namine is present on the platform. These are just guesses though, and anybody's guess is as good as ours right now. There is a sneaky cut present in this scene however. The very beginning shows Sora on top of his own Station of Awakening. You can infer this by the red present on the platform, which is meant to be his Kingdom Hearts I attire. When he is up in the air though, it is Riku's Station instead. The transition here is quite clever. Sora's words are quite vague. The fact that "hearts are connected" is nothing new in this franchise, but Sora's tone of realization here is significant. He reflects on everyone telling him to follow his own heart, but then references how hearts are connected. This might mean that he takes that statement to a new level of understanding, maybe to even mean, "follow everyone's hearts", also known as tracing them. Since all hearts are connected, Sora following his own heart will follow his connections, ergo connecting him to everyone. This also explains why it shows him interacting with Riku's Station of Awakening and not his own when saying this. Next, Kairi makes her debut in this trailer, appearing in The Final World with Sora. Her tone and wording makes it pretty clear that this is her first time stepping foot onto this world. Then, out of nowhere, we are shown Kairi being playable for the first time in the series! Sora is the party member here, and armored Xehanort is the boss. She is wielding Destiny's Embrace and her combative segment begins with what looks like a reflective guard, similar in nature to Aqua's natural guard and Riku's guard. She is also able to shoot her Keyblade forward from quite a distance from what we see here. She is quite a ways from Xehanort and still manages to attack him from that distance. Afterwards, she soars into the air and fires of a barrage of light infused projectiles towards Xehanort. This seems to be her shotlock. The arena for this battle is a bit different from the standard platforms we've seen for the other Organization battles. There is quite an intensively woven magic circle of sorts slowly rotating on the field. This might be due to Xehanort's presence. Either way, it is very interesting to have Sora as a party member for this battle. We then see a very quick scene of Sora activating a sphere in Scala ad Caelum, which creates a rail of light for him to grind on. Since this section is entirely new and entirely devoid of combat, this practically confirms that Scala ad Caelum has been expanded in some ways. While we don't know to which extent it has been opened, the fact that Sora is here alone and not with Donald and Goofy shows that this is taking place during post-game. , Roxas, Axel and Xion are then shown fighting off against a member of the Organization. While we don't see this member's face, the fact that they are floating suggests that it is Xemnas. Axel calls out to Roxas and Xion, and exclaims "Get what's ours!" All three Keyblade wielders then go off with Keyblade in hand to strike Xemnas. The fact that Xemnas is here gives credence to the possibility of this being an alternate story scenario, or maybe taking place after Sora leaves the trio in the vanilla game. Another brief scene, with this one showing Riku and Aqua in the Land of Departure. This has to be taking place after the main game's story. While the subject of their conversation eludes us at the moment, the fact that the word "again" is used here suggests that Aqua could be going back to the Realm of Darkness. What that reason is, no one knows. But she also says that she isn't alone now, so someone else would be going with her in this context. The trailer ends with words from Chirithy referring to how Sora won't be able to return to his world without his powers. And lastly, Sora and Yozora walk up to one another in the Final World during night-time, with Sora saying "I've been...." and Yozora following up with "I've been having these weird thoughts lately." Finally, in conjunction, both of them say "Like, is any of this for real or not?" This scene is a complete mystery, but perhaps this ties into the secret movie "Yozora" and the events that transpire there? The moon present in the sky is a nice touch. The night-time esque setting here is rather fitting since Yozora means night sky in Japanese. You can pre-order the DLC now! It releases on PS4 on January 23rd, 2020 and Xbox One on February 25th, 2020. We covered the State of Play's release of this trailer here. We also covered a slew of new information such as a recent Famitsu interview with Tetsuya Nomura and more information regarding what was revealed at the Osaka orchestra! What features and inclusions of Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind are you most excited for! Let us know!

  3. Welcome to KH13’s trailer analysis for the new Kingdom Hearts III Winnie the Pooh trailer from Mexico City’s X018 event! Though only being a little over a minute and a half, this trailer features a lot of new content from a new world reveal to extensions of scenes that hint at what the Seekers of Darkness have in store for our main protagonists. So, let’s dive into it! The trailer starts with the Kingdom Hearts III rating provided by the ESRB: It is rated E10+ for alcohol reference and fantasy violence. The full description they released for their rating can be viewed here, but do be warned: it includes minor spoilers for some as far as what type of violence to expect. The trailer then opens properly with a sea of lanterns in the sky before closing in on Rapunzel and Flynn on a canoe in the midst of it all. Fans of Tangled will recognize this iconic scene, for it is the scene before the popular, “I See the Light” is sung. I will never stop marveling at the authenticity of the cutscenes Square Enix revealed; it really pulls you into the world of the movies. A nice touch is seeing Sora and co. viewing the lanterns, separate from Rapunzel and Flynn from their mound with the castle in the background. It is a good way to start the trailer. Rapunzel and Flynn sharing a moment. This is a cutscene, folks. The detail! Movie comparison. Pretty close. Cutscene... ... Movie! Our main trio get to relax and check out the lanterns as well. Next we jump straight into the Winnie the Pooh world after which this trailer is named. We see Sora surrounded by Pooh and his friends, including the small purple Heffalump, a character from Winnie the Pooh that has not been present the previous times we visited this world in the series. The characters are all cell-shaded, with small black outlines. You really do feel like you are viewing a storybook. It makes sense, as Square are doing their best to make every world distinct and a character in their own right. Pooh and the gang are all here. Sora reassuring he'll always be with Pooh where it counts. From here you get a nice close-up look at the cell-shading and character outlines, especially on Sora. After feasting our eyes on such a sweet moment, we transition back into Twilight Town as Utada Hikaru’s beautiful “Chikai”, or "Don't Think Twice", plays over these new cutscenes. We see Pence and Hayner outside the old mansion. Without hesitation, Hayner straight up rushes over and tries to dropkick Ansem in the head. The man was ready! The slow-motion and angle changes really sell the moment, and it is one of the highlights of the trailer for me. As you can imagine, the barrage of memes from this scene alone just goes to show how much of an impact Hayner makes here. I’m not sure if Hayner will survive this attempt (we all know Ansem doesn’t play fair), but no one can say the boy didn’t try, okay? Hayner is a loyal friend that needs protection! From the blur in motion you can tell Hayner wasn't messing around. He reacts fast and is completely focused here. Can't say the same about Pence... And here it is! The winning pose! Get him, Hayner! I had to share at least one. My personal favorite meme thanks to @RecusantVessel! It fits so well! Afterwards, we see more Organization members, specifically Demyx and Vexen. We get a much clearer look at Demyx’s eyes here. Though some may have doubted it before, with the close-up there is no denying Xehanort’s influence over him. However, his sass remains intact as he tells Vexen exactly what he thinks of their business arrangement. Though they are both tasked to do some type of assignment together, it is clear that Demyx doesn't feel valued by Vexen. The voice acting here is solid and is a highlight for a character we have mostly only seen react based off of fear. Demyx and Vexen. Demyx seems unhappy here. In this shot his eyes are unmistakably yellow. In the next frame we are greeted to Sora reassuring Chirithy that they will meet again. This is the first time any character related to Union χ[Cross] have shown up in a Kingdom Hearts III trailer. Though Nomura stated that Union χ[Cross] would be important to this chapter in the series, it's nice to finally get this scene for confirmation. Sora and Chirithy in an unknown place. A new world? So far we don’t know if Sora and Chirithy are in a new world or if this is somewhere in the lanes between. It appears like they are standing in the sky, but a scene a little further in the trailer may shed some lights as to their whereabouts. After Sora’s chat with Chirithy, we encounter more cutscenes from the Pirates of the Caribbean and Big Hero 6 worlds. The detail of the pirate ships and Jack Sparrow’s sword fight against Davy Jones amidst the rain is truly breathtaking . I really felt like I was watching a scene from the film. The water! My eyes were fooled every time. I legitimately thought I was viewing the movie here. Movie comparison. The worlds of Kingdom of Corona and The Caribbean are an example of worlds with plots in Kingdom Hearts that take after their film counterparts. From the more photo-realistic look of the models within Pirates of the Caribbean, it looks like this world will test the graphic engine the most compared to the other worlds Sora will visit. From Kingdom Hearts II to now, the series has come so far in depicting this franchise and I think many fans of these films will appreciate all the effort. From Big Hero 6 we finally see Dark Baymax in action and view a snippet of what his boss fight will look that. His eyes are red, not a good sign. Aerial combat! It has been a while since the concept art showcased Sora on top of Baymax fighting another Baymax that is seemingly corrupted with darkness. So seeing him within the game engine for me was a high point. His boss fight seems to take place fully in the air and is very fast paced. Despite the combat, the detail doesn’t falter and the city surrounding them feels alive and thriving. From here on out the trailer focuses mostly on various gameplay and new limit attacks. We get our first look at some of the mini games one can play within Hundred Acre Wood. For me, it reminds me a little of Bejeweled, Diamond Dash, and Tetris. Color coordination and category type seem to play a huge role in progression. It looks very engaging, and the cute aesthetic surrounding the menu and environments adds to the experience. New limit attacks feature Sora, Goofy, and Donald being wrapped in Rapunzel's hair as she, with the help of Flynn, swing the trio around to attack surrounding enemies. It reminds me of Rapunzel's self contained attacks in which she swings her hair or utilizes her environment to gain momentum. It looks like Rapunzel's limits will be very useful in this regard with a large area of effect. Rapunzel looks eager and ready to go. Sora and his friends being swung around. Pretty effective against a large group. Another cool limit shown involves Jack Sparrow. Sora, and him team up for a flurry of sword attacks that connect with raining bombs from above, sending off a series of explosions and sword slashes towards their enemies. The last gameplay segment involves a new transformation Sora utilizes. The “Hunny Launcher” canon attack appears similar to the Star Seeker canon finisher Sora can perform with the Keyblade, though this time the attack forms an explosion of honey. It is a short but nevertheless satisfying look into the possible attacks you can do with what I assume to be the Keyblade you obtain from the Hundred Acre Wood. After this we see Sora running by clones of himself on a white platform surrounded by blue skies and white pillars. This almost appears like a nod to the scenes of Sora and images of himself run amok in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. The look of the sky in this area also appears very similar to wherever Sora and Chirithy are standing, though its unknown if these places are truly the same or even connected. Is this cloudy world real or is inside Sora's head? Many fans have speculated that these cloudy places are in reference to the Final Mix cover of Kingdom Hearts II. With Nomura’s love of hidden messages within symbols and visual metaphors, I would not be surprised if these places were connected. Let’s not forget, Sora’s name translates to “Sky,” in English, so these places could have a special connection specifically to him or have to deal with how Sora connects to others. Characters falling through the sky are a constant throughout the series. Cover for Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. Another concerning aspect is that as Sora is in free fall, passing by multiple clones of himself, his body fades away into a translucent blue form from his legs to his torso. This makes me feel like this place has to do with the heart or some other mental field rather than a physical world. It is the most vague moment of the trailer and I’m very curious to find out where this is taking place in the future. Could Sora be traveling through them in order to help Roxas or Ventus in some way? Another highlight of the trailer for me is the next sequence. Sora looks up only to see multiple shadows fall from the night sky. Besides him, Goofy, and Donald., we also see Lea paired up with Kairi and King Mickey paired up with Riku in the same area, ready to face the horde of Heartless, Unversed, and Nobodies alongside Sora. It's raining Heartless! The King and Riku are ready to go! Kairi and Lea! For the first time we see Lea summoning his Keyblade in battle. It will be really fun to see him in action. Kairi also goes into a stance similar to Sora, Xion, and Roxas. The entire battle feels like a call back to the 1,000 Heartless battle Sora faces with Donald and Goofy back in Kingdom Hearts II. This new battle will be even more chaotic with every type of enemy our heroes have faced throughout the series present and accounted for. Good thing Sora has a lot more help this time around. They're all here! I hope our heroes are ready to throw down. The final moments of the trailer feature more from Organization XIII. We see Terra-Xehanort encountering the Lingering Will and exclaiming, “Who are you?!” It is an intriguing exchange, because back in Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Terra-Xehanort knows that the Lingering Will is part of Terra (what's left of him). But here Terra-Xehanort doesn’t recognize the suit of armor, possibly due to his amnesia. I believe this fight is an attempt for Terra to regain his body. This could be the makings of a very compelling boss, and if Sora ends up being a part of the scene I think it would be fitting to fight alongside the Lingering Will against Terra-Xehanort instead of against the armor itself, as was the case in a grueling secret boss fight within Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. Where and when is this taking place? What could have summoned the Lingering Will to face Terra-Xehanort after all this time? Many answers are awaiting the outcome of this fight. In a fast cut directly after the exchange, we witness a shot of various Keyblades tumbling through the sky and a shot of all 13 Darknesses arranged on a rising platform within a environment. It appears similar to the barren wastelands present in the Keyblade Graveyard, but this could also be the new location where the final battle will be set. This ending leaves us with a feeling of dread as Master Xehanort speaks of recreating the χ-blade once more. Do you recognize any of these Keyblades? V-formation is the best formation for evil I suppose. We also hear some of what the new actor reprising for the late Leonard Nimoy will sound like as Master Xehanort. Some fans have speculated that Mark Hamill, who voices Master Eraqus, has taken upt he mantel. When a fan asked Mark Hamill on twitter directly, he liked the tweet which adds to this theory. It is too early to say, but after viewing the trailer multiple times the resemblance of the few spoken lines to Mark Hamill’s voice is uncanny. We shall see! The mastermind behind it all. All in all, this trailer offered so much content for speculation. I really like the balance between the tones of each world and the loving attention to detail. Witnessing Chirithy and the Lingering Will really doubles down on the promise of many loose ends being tied up for this saga as everything comes full circle. What are your thoughts and opinions regarding this latest trailer? Nomura recently revealed that more are coming for this and next month, so stay tuned for more trailer analyses from us real soon!

  4. Welcome to KH13’s trailer analysis for the new Kingdom Hearts III Winnie the Pooh trailer from Mexico City’s X018 event! Though only being a little over a minute and a half, this trailer features a lot of new content from a new world reveal to extensions of scenes that hint at what the Seekers of Darkness have in store for our main protagonists. So, let’s dive into it! The trailer starts with the Kingdom Hearts III rating provided by the ESRB: It is rated E10+ for alcohol reference and fantasy violence. The full description they released for their rating can be viewed here, but do be warned: it includes minor spoilers for some as far as what type of violence to expect. The trailer then opens properly with a sea of lanterns in the sky before closing in on Rapunzel and Flynn on a canoe in the midst of it all. Fans of Tangled will recognize this iconic scene, for it is the scene before the popular, “I See the Light” is sung. I will never stop marveling at the authenticity of the cutscenes Square Enix revealed; it really pulls you into the world of the movies. A nice touch is seeing Sora and co. viewing the lanterns, separate from Rapunzel and Flynn from their mound with the castle in the background. It is a good way to start the trailer. Rapunzel and Flynn sharing a moment. This is a cutscene, folks. The detail! Movie comparison. Pretty close. Cutscene... ... Movie! Our main trio get to relax and check out the lanterns as well. Next we jump straight into the Winnie the Pooh world after which this trailer is named. We see Sora surrounded by Pooh and his friends, including the small purple Heffalump, a character from Winnie the Pooh that has not been present the previous times we visited this world in the series. The characters are all cell-shaded, with small black outlines. You really do feel like you are viewing a storybook. It makes sense, as Square are doing their best to make every world distinct and a character in their own right. Pooh and the gang are all here. Sora reassuring he'll always be with Pooh where it counts. From here you get a nice close-up look at the cell-shading and character outlines, especially on Sora. After feasting our eyes on such a sweet moment, we transition back into Twilight Town as Utada Hikaru’s beautiful “Chikai”, or "Don't Think Twice", plays over these new cutscenes. We see Pence and Hayner outside the old mansion. Without hesitation, Hayner straight up rushes over and tries to dropkick Ansem in the head. The man was ready! The slow-motion and angle changes really sell the moment, and it is one of the highlights of the trailer for me. As you can imagine, the barrage of memes from this scene alone just goes to show how much of an impact Hayner makes here. I’m not sure if Hayner will survive this attempt (we all know Ansem doesn’t play fair), but no one can say the boy didn’t try, okay? Hayner is a loyal friend that needs protection! From the blur in motion you can tell Hayner wasn't messing around. He reacts fast and is completely focused here. Can't say the same about Pence... And here it is! The winning pose! Get him, Hayner! I had to share at least one. My personal favorite meme thanks to @RecusantVessel! It fits so well! Afterwards, we see more Organization members, specifically Demyx and Vexen. We get a much clearer look at Demyx’s eyes here. Though some may have doubted it before, with the close-up there is no denying Xehanort’s influence over him. However, his sass remains intact as he tells Vexen exactly what he thinks of their business arrangement. Though they are both tasked to do some type of assignment together, it is clear that Demyx doesn't feel valued by Vexen. The voice acting here is solid and is a highlight for a character we have mostly only seen react based off of fear. Demyx and Vexen. Demyx seems unhappy here. In this shot his eyes are unmistakably yellow. In the next frame we are greeted to Sora reassuring Chirithy that they will meet again. This is the first time any character related to Union χ[Cross] have shown up in a Kingdom Hearts III trailer. Though Nomura stated that Union χ[Cross] would be important to this chapter in the series, it's nice to finally get this scene for confirmation. Sora and Chirithy in an unknown place. A new world? So far we don’t know if Sora and Chirithy are in a new world or if this is somewhere in the lanes between. It appears like they are standing in the sky, but a scene a little further in the trailer may shed some lights as to their whereabouts. After Sora’s chat with Chirithy, we encounter more cutscenes from the Pirates of the Caribbean and Big Hero 6 worlds. The detail of the pirate ships and Jack Sparrow’s sword fight against Davy Jones amidst the rain is truly breathtaking . I really felt like I was watching a scene from the film. The water! My eyes were fooled every time. I legitimately thought I was viewing the movie here. Movie comparison.

  5. Hey guys, I'm new to this site, I'll introduce myself later but let me skip to the chase. After reading 9 pages of the KH3 Chess Piece analysis I might have picked up on something others may have skipped ( Please forgive me if this becomes your waste of time) Many people thought that this piece was Aquas Stormfall keychain... http://i794.photobucket.com/albums/yy230/ShardofTruth/Other%20KH%20stuff/Chess%20Pieces%20KHIII.png I'm talking about Number 6 But could it be Lea's logo on his KHBBS frisbee? http://www.khwiki.com/images/5/58/Lea_Frisbee.png This was just my Lil' (probably stupid) thought and I figured why not let it be my first post
