That's a plausible thought. Nomura has also said he wants to produce a game with multiple characters played in the main storyline. Do you think this is Reconnect?

well he said that was what the other title he was working on would be like. which would mean 3ds. so yeah.That's a plausible thought. Nomura has also said he wants to produce a game with multiple characters played in the main storyline. Do you think this is Reconnect?
There is no such thing as Reconnect. That was just one word at the end of KH. Unless I am proven wrong.
True but until other news its now only known as KH3DI'm sure someone mentioned "Reconnect" in a question posed as an interview, which may have come about as the title being a bit of a fan theory. I can't for the life of me remember how Nomura responded to it. I don't think he completely dismissed the game though.
KH3D is only the tentative title. And Nomura has talked a fair amount about tying everything together in multiple interviews. If this is not that game, then what is?
There’s one I plan to release within the year. After that, there’s another one I’m thinking I want to release from next year onwards, and I think there will be more than one main character again. By the way, the scene “Blank Points” in Birth by Sleep in which Sora ends up setting off on his journey is planned to connect to Kingdom Hearts III.
There’s a deep collection between Coded and Birth by Sleep, they’re both connected to the story taking place after Kingdom Hearts 2.
- A connection to Kingdom Hearts 3?
Nomura: What to say…? The story thus far has extended too much; I think that it’d be good to bring it together plainly for a moment. Though I can’t speak about those developments.
Ok, so after reading through several interviews, I've got a much more radical idea in my head. If they were to pull this off, this could be a very, very, very kick ass game.
First, the connection between Birth by Sleep's secret ending and KH3D:
First note the name of the movie. Blank Points. Points in the plot that have been left behind, quite literally forgotten (eg Xion), which ties into torment, or, as coded!Roxas puts it, the pain of being forgotten/lost to the darkness. Interesting to note here that he says the next game (I believe in reference to 3D, not 3), "isn't restricted to Blank Points." Couple that with another Nomura quote: "this secret movie is not connected to just the sequel but its content recaps the story." Again, we see the word recap. Not just foreshadowing the sequel (KH3), but recapping the story thus far.
Now let's take a look at some other Nomura quotes pertaining to the future of the series:
Naturally, KH3D is the game with multiple main characters by process of elimination (since re:coded is the one going to be released this year), which I believe hints at, as I said, a Riku mode (at least). Note how the mention of this title also seems to remind Nomura of the secret ending. While he says it's connected to KH3, he also says:
The story after KH2 (and after coded) is still not necessarily KH3. Note how he says though that the story has extended too far (ie gotten too convoluted) and that things need to be brought together plainly (meaning putting things into perspective... like the recap in the secret ending
What does this all mean? The secret ending has something to do with KH3D, but the story after KH2/coded isn't necessarily KH3 and, instead, will put the series into perspective. What's going on?
Well, one idea came to mind.
KH3D takes place after KH2. We will go through Sora's memories a la coded/CoM (again... but bear with me) in order to begin healing torment, since the first step is to remember those who are hurt. But because Sora's heart harbors not just his own memories, but the memories and torment of those connected to him, we may glimpse into their stories as well. And it's not just Sora we could be diving into. Riku, who may be harboring Terra's heart and, thus, his memories, may also need to do the same, explaining why there's a Riku mode.
Basically, to dumb things down, think Assassin's Creed meets Kingdom Hearts. It's basically like coded as well, except this time, instead of looking through the journal to find the source of the bugs, we're looking through Sora's actual heart to find the torment.
I know this doesn't sound all too great but it has MASSIVE potential. Why?
Because of the scope. Seriously, we could cover almost the entire series. So much so that it wouldn't be enough for one game. No, I'm not suggesting multiple remakes. Rather, we trim the fat. While this unfortunately gets rid of most of the Disney worlds, we could get right down to the nitty gritty. We'd play through the events of KH1 up until KH2 except, in the vein of Assassin's Creed, skip by all the unimportant stuff and get right to new revelations. This could also mean that, playing through the memories in Sora's heart, Sora will not be the only playable character (as well as Riku, like I explained earlier). Say we get to Roxas' memories and play as Roxas. And Xion. And Ven... and even Terra, though that would be through Riku.
Basically, it'd be a re-envisioning of the series thus far. Kingdom Hearts 3D. Not just Kingdom Hearts 1 but "Kingdom Hearts" the series. And through all of the new scenes and whatnot. This would be the game that plugs all the holes, that puts the series into perspective, that gets the fans (both new and old) ready for KH3 without all of the convolution.
But it's probably not and I'm just fanboying over something nonexistent.
