Nomura writes the main story updates himself, and I don't know if you've noticed, but the man kind of hasn't stopped working a day in his life since 2001 if not earlier
2.8, KHIII and FFVIIR were all in development at the same time at one point, in addition to Uχ
Not to mention whatever role he...
Y'know, like, I get it.
I've been praying for a console remake ever since χ[chi] ended service. Obviously a canon browser/mobile game isn't what any of us ever wanted and the potential of a console version of the story is extremely promising.
I just feel like this announcement having such an...
Reactions like this are honestly kind of baffling to me
It's as if this is the first time Square has announced a Kingdom Hearts mobile game
Except it's literally an update to the existing mobile game
Feels sort of like "where were you for the last seven years"
The interface is very reminiscent of the system used by Yakuza Online.
χ[chi]'s combat was entirely automated and randomized, making it a very passive experience.
Mechanically this system is a lot closer to Uχ's model, but with more of an ATB-style flow rather than strict turn orders.
I disagree with the notion of organizing news releases around an unreasonable fanbase, but that's neither here nor there.
They used a shot of Xehanort from KHIII because he's the star of the game. χ[chi] had no such cast members they could market with pre-existing assets.
They also teased the...
They did say that UX players would get something for DR.
And considering the game can be played independently of UX, I'd say that qualifies as standalone.
It's like the mobage version of an HD collection. Two games sharing one launcher.
I'm willing to bet it'll even be an optional download...
The screenshot is said to be of a development build. Agrabah could just be a placeholder location.
I fully expect reused worlds, but that doesn't necessarily mean it'll just be "Aladdin feat. Xehanort" or that there won't be new/DR-exclusive worlds.
All Heartless come from Darkness, and have no physical bodies by default
So they're time traveling :^)
I'm kidding but like, this is a very real possibility for why Heartless are in UX/Daybreak Town at all. Remember when your Foreteller said it felt like someone was bringing the Heartless there?
I'm relieved that it's not actually a completely separate app.
Wonder why they made a separate Twitter account, that being the case.
Should we consider Dark Road a separate game, or just lump them together as Union χ Dark Road like the logo?
Also, the gameplay is markedly different from the...
Ephemera and Brain believe that Ava was aware of the change in Union Leaders, but not responsible for it.
Ventus is the replacement, but he was not aware of it and believes it was Ava who appointed him.
Darkness reveals he's helping Maleficent for "an old, old friend" and that her going...
I actually kind of can't believe we're getting a second mobile game without KHUX shutting down first
Not sure how exactly I feel about another mobile game. But hey, if this is the price to pay for the Xehanort prequel to actually happen, then so be it.
