Isn't that what everyone said about Kingdom Hearts when it was first announced?
Not me. I still have a magazine from 2001 with a small blurb basically saying, "Hey, this is going to be a thing," laying out the basic premise (Disney+FF+a few original characters designed by Nomura). I think there was also a small picture of Sora holding the Kingdom Key and one of Kairi.

i immediately thought "This sounds amazing."

And honestly -- I did love KH up through KH2. The mobile aspect of KHcoded annoyed me, and that's probably when it started losing me. By the time 358/2 Days came along, I was well on my way out the door. With KH3D, I slammed it behind me.

I will play KH3 at some point, though.



As for the Marvel thing, no, I don't want to see Marvel characters in KH. I'm sure they could make it work if they devoted a whole game to it, but I'd prefer they stop at a world for "Big Hero 6," whose world and story is self-contained. It's also a better fit in terms of tone and aesthetics. I'm sure it will rather readily lend itself thematically as well.

Also, no to "Star Wars" in KH. Tempting as it may be to see Sora get a Lightsaber keychain, I wouldn't relish a heavily truncated version of any "Star Wars" tale we know, and would want to roll my eyes at any forced analogies between the Dark Side and the darkness in people's hearts.

Only way I can see it being okay (by my standards anyway), is if it was a wholly original and self-contained event for "Star Wars." And if there was some offhand explanation that Sora, Donald and Goofy had somehow landed not in a "world" of their reality, but had found themselves in "a galaxy far, far away -- perhaps beyond any universe we know."
