Back to Blog
WOW is all have to say regarding last week. Also, I should apologise for not uploading a blog last week, I wanted to keep up with the KH news and lot of stuff happened at school. But I figured it was time for another editorial, since we got a LOT of KH News. And I have to say, all of it was amazing.
Also, there may be spoilers ahead for Re:Coded, Birth By Sleep and 0.2 IN ADDITION to some minor spoilers for the Kingdom Hearts Series overall.
Big Hero 6: The world to make Re:Coded relevant
Ok, I have not played Re:Coded and I am not going to.I know the story, and as far as I am aware, that game has not to do with anything...until KH3. I do expect the Big Hero 6 world to be the weakest(due to the fact it was a last second inculcation, so a rushed in world story not be surprising.),but despite that, it looks great! Though It's trying to bring in Re:Coded, a game I will not play because it has nothing to do with anything. However, we have Data Riku in this, so... maybe I will give the movie a watch?
Roxas: Friend or Foe?
The story of Roxas is one of the big drawing points of Kingdom Hearts fans. After losing Xion and Axel in 358/2 days, he ends up being toyed with in the first part of Kingdom Hearts 2, and now he is back in Kingdom Hearts 3, but it's unclear if he is helping Xehanort, or is just in his Organisation XIII gear. In the trailer, Ansem and Xigbar talk about the fact that if Sora diverts from the path they set for him, they will kill, but they would need another vessel. Are the Organisation trying to use Sora so they have Roxas as a vessel? Is Aqua the backup Vessel? Speaking of....MAJOR SPOILERS FOR BBS AND BBS 0.2 INCOMING.
Aqua and Ventus: Souls that need to be saved
Oh my good, Birth By Sleep is a gutpunch, and I mean a GUTPUNCH, and don't worry the review will be soon. But Vanitus appears with Ventus saying "What I am going to do with you, Brother?" OK, 1, that f**king creepy all things considered(even though it makes scene), and 2, is Ventus a backup plan in case Terra-Nort backfires? Is Aquanort a plan to bait Sora into do the organisation's dirty work, because the know that Aqua's heart is weak from 10 years in the darkness? Why do I have so many theories now? Anyway, here's something that I think will always hold true:
Sora must save everyone.
I think EVERYONE lost their minds when they saw this. Blank Points and 0.2 really hint towards Sora being a great warrior, and someone who has saved all the worlds, and he now faces his greatest challenge: Master Xehanort and the XIII Seekers of Darkness.
However, in the short trailer that was released a week earlier, Vanitus said that "Only when your hopes been broken by battle upon battle, that the key to Kingdom Hearts(The Moon, not the Door) can be claimed." Sora has fought and killed a lot, so this might be easier than I think, but we will see.
This is more a personal thing(being someone who wants to get into the game development industry), but the Animation levels in this game are amazing. I love how they make Vanitus seem crazed to Aqua's subtle yet scary movements to the F**KING DOLL.
I also wanted to know what other people thought, so here are quotes from my friends at the StarSeekers on what they thought of the KH News:
It was really amazing to see new gameplay and new cutscenes from the game! Totally every day they improve the game to much a better level!
Just the Big Hero 6 stuff and that’s it tbh.
My favorite thing from the TGS news was the scene with Kairi and Sora on the tree! I ship Sokai a lot, and seeing this makes me hopeful it happens in KH3!
Without a doubt the trailer, like seeing the other org members norted, big hero six, and most importantly seeing my boy Roxas again!!!
Seeing Roxas , I think.
Seeing my boi Demyx back, tho, still veeeeeery worried if he's norted or not!
Anyways, that's it for now! There's a lot more I could have talked about(the doll boss, the new theme song that features Skrillex) but I want to keep this relatively short, as we lead to the end of the Xehanort Saga of Kingdom Hearts games on January 25 in Japan and January 29 worldwide on PS4, and for the first time on Xbox One.
Thanks for reading, have a great day/night, share if you enjoyed and take care.
