I am. Sort of. If it wasn't for N3DS.

I wasn't planning on buying the machine, so I might get the game without it, and only buy a N3DS once its prize has dropped like hell.

I haven't been interested in the franchise since Kingdom Hearts 2, but I still keep up with the games just in case something does interest me. If they ever went back to the feel of the first game I'd start getting into it again.

The only reason I ever cared about Kingdom Hearts is because of the Final Fantasy characters. Unfortunately they are not nearly as abundant as the Disney characters and worlds, so KH has always been a disappointing series for me. =/

So no, I'm not looking forward to this game.

I've never even heard of this game. I really wanna replay KH2 now, though. xD

And nah, probably won't bother with any new KH thing that isn't the KH3 that will never be made.

Maybe during my Kingdom Hearts Phase I would have brought this, I lost interest in Kingdom Hearts after 1 and 2 came out(Well I moved on to FF), Those two will always be the best.

Well it was never about the FF characters in the first place.

Always saddens me a little bit when people say they only play it for the FF characters. I'm glad they're hardly using them anymore and let KH stand on its own feet.

Perhaps I exaggerated a bit, because the Sora-Riku-Kairi story was something I DID care about, but the high amount of reliance on Disney worlds and characters is what bothers me. So in that sense KH is not standing on "its own feet", while on the other hand the stuff that defines Kingdom Hearts alone has expanded, yes.

Um yes it is. Kingdom Hearts IS Disney. The journey through Disney worlds is a core part of it. It's what makes Kingdom Hearts what it is.

They had a good formula going up until Kingdom Hearts 2.

What I meant with "the stuff that defines Kingdom Hearts alone", was the parts of the universe that is from neither Disney nor Final Fantasy. Like the Destiny Islands, Organization XIII, the keyblade warriors etc.
So yes I could have worded that better.


Yes, the journey through the Disney worlds has obviously been a core part of the experience from the beginning. My point is that I never liked this. The beginning and ending of the first Kingdom Hearts is an awesome ride, while it feels like the story stops when you are journeying through the Disney realms.

Kingdom Hearts II is a bit better at focusing on the actual story, plus returning you to Hollow Bastion in the middle of the game and letting you see the Final Fantasy characters in action.

So whatever KH is or is not, I would have enjoyed it more if there had been proportionally less Disney in it.

I agree with mog. It didnt have that spirit or adventurous feel I enjoyed with KH, these organizers sort of killed it for me. had there been 2-3 and not 13 of these fuckers, I would've enjoyed it more. They should've used final fantasy villains for god's sake, combine with disney villains or some shit idk? thats what the fucking cross over is for isn't it? It would've been fun to fight Jecht's final aeon or kick Garland's ass. Something thats a good mix with both worlds uppened up to the scale. That's what I expected with 2 at least, not these pretty boy images from Planet of the fabios.


Sorry for my rant, I just enjoyed the first game so much, so little had been done to uppen up the epic feel the first had ; . ;

I got Birth by Sleep and I was really pleased with that game, except it was entirely too short (I always like origin stories and it's really interesting to see the buildup to the first game). It's been my favorite of the series so far but I don't think I'll be getting this game, mostly because I don't have a 3DS.

If it sounds interesting, maybe, but meh I'm not dying for it. I certainly wasn't interested in 358/2 Days.

I'm not getting 3D because I won't be getting a 3DS and also the only way to show them that enough is enough with this handheld filler bullshit is by not buying it.

tbh I love classic Disney. I'd like to see more dark and scary old style Disney in the KH games.
