Another thing people a lot of time overlook is Break Time which might be one of the best commands for Sora. It can fully heal your entire party, instantly max the link gauges of your active dream eaters, or fully restore the drop gauge. Sure the effect you get is random but the recharge isn't bad with some hastes, it only takes up one slot, and with it you basically never have to think about a drop-me-not ever again. I'm actually replaying DDD as we speak and I've got through 4 worlds now as Sora never needing even one drop-me-not because of it. I can also spam his link attacks as much as I want which is nice. I know it might be too much to hope for but I hope one of the changes they think about doing for DDD HD is letting Riku use break time as well.

I was so disappointed when Riku didn't have a breaktime. That was my favourite command from BBS and I wanted to see what dorky/hot thing he would do. TURNS OUT NOTHING.

^ So basically sleep realm=no flow of time, dark realm=slow flow of time, light realm=normal time but varies to world?
If KH has a god of time then I pity him for his position. haha

Yea, the connections between characters is not the only thing that's complicated in the KH verse, so I'd say many possible "gods" are to pity in that universe.
Going by the premise that in KH "death" seems to be a sort glorified longer sleep, I could imagine a situation like this:

Goddess of Time: "Jeeeez...keeping track of all those different time flows in worlds and realms is so exhausting and if you mess up some of them there's an even bigger mess. And don't get me started on some of those pesky mortals who insist on time-travelling!"
God of Death: "Tell me about it. For me it's like I'm running a giant hotel where everyone sleeps until someone else comes around to wake them up, yet no one ever pays for the service. It's getting more and more annoying since recently more of those indeed pesky mortals came to know about which number to call to wake someone up they want back."
Goddess of Birth and Creation: "Look at you two bitching over trivialities. I've had several instances recently where the mortals simply forego me and give birth to new hearts and individuals themselves by spawning them from their own hearts or form them from some memories."
Goddess of Time: "What are you complaining about? This should make things easier for you, should it not? In the mortal's world this would be called "outsourcing"."

That's the million dollar question, isn't it?

Precisely. That's why Aqua looks the same despite 10 years passing in the RoL. To her, it wasn't even close to that long. So, we may very well experience Aqua's perspective of the entire KH series post-BBS in 0.2

And most likely one of the central things to be showcased in BBS 0.2, provided Mickey really met her in person at all.

Indeed, and by including occasional scenes of other characters and locations (as they already did in DDD) we would get a pointer at to where exactly we are on the timeline post-BBS right now.
The very last scene I could imagine is then Aqua meeting Ansem the Wise shortly after KH 2, closing the circle to Blank Points.

Yeah I actually really liked the Drop system and definitely thought it was better than BBS' approach. Never bothered me at all. I think the people for whom it really bothered never really bothered to look into Drop-Me-Nots (or Drop-Me-Nevers) or the fact that one of the bonuses is being able to choose a slower Drop gauge. I literally never had a problem with the system dropping me in the middle of a boss battle, for example.

Can only agree with that. When playing DDD, I never got dropped when I didn't want to except of course forced story-drops.
By refilling the Drop Gauge directly before facing the Boss you have enough time at hand even for Bosses.

I was so disappointed when Riku didn't have a breaktime. That was my favourite command from BBS and I wanted to see what dorky/hot thing he would do. TURNS OUT NOTHING.

Every major character should have a Break Time and do something elegant or hilarious with it.
Maybe even the villains:
Master Xehanort's break time would probably be extended finger wiggling while Xemnas practices Skyscraper throwing.

Time the the RoD flows veeeery slow according to Nomura, so while Aqua might be trekking around for only a week or so inside it, it is entirely possible that in the Realm of Light the whole timespan from the end of BBS up to the start of DDD goes by.
And not only that, but, theoretically, while we don't know specifically on how slow the RoD's time axis is, do to it there's a chance there could be survivors from the Keyblade war era.

Possibly, all of the Foretellers have stayed in the Realm of Darkness and have felt so guilty of their selfishness in getting light that darkness manifests and take over their hearts essentially making them perfect Xehanort vessels.

Eh. I guess it is technically possible? But it seems a bit much to me, lol. If anything they probably became Heartless over the thousands of years since the War.

There's either thousands of gods holding the same job for different areas or thousands of Joshua's haha.....oh glob what if they're all Joshuas!?

KH3 plot twist. *no srsly posts like this have come true before*

*remembers another "heartless" from KH1* Oh dear glob....

This is totally going to be what happens, isn't it?

Keyblade War, world consumed by darkness, only fragments of the world return due to pure lights, most left in darkness, Foretellers trapped in Realm of Darkness, and they're still in relatively decent health due to RoD time flow.

If not that, something similar to it will happen. It makes too much sense to not happen.

I won't make an article for this because its shady making an article about a magazine that hasn't even released yet (and a longer summary will likely come out soon enough), but from an interview leak, it appears Nomura confirms that 2.8 will use KH3 tech, 0.2 was planned to be the at the beginning of KH3.

https://twitter.com/aibo_ac7/status/645234765340127232

Translation thanks to goldpanner!:

"content from interview w/ tetsuya nomura - seems like KHHD 2.8 FCP all use KH3 techniques - KH 0.2 BbS includes KH3 element and is closely tied to KH3 - KH 0.2 BbS was originally planned to be put into the beginning of KH3, etc. in long-form in interview (leaked GK)"

Please be excited for next week!

So besides the interview that will be coming next week, Goldpanner has translated most of the scans. Most interesting (read: weird) part is that it says chi is only over 100 years in the past of BBS. This seems like an error by the magazine...

Check it out on the main site or in the thread OP:

Well it says "(over one hundred years after)", meaning KHx takes place at least 100 years before BBS. They're likely just playing it safe with a low estimate.

Over 100 years is such a bad lowball estimate, though, especially when you think of how Xehanort is at least 80 and so was Kairi's grandma.

They could have been safe with saying over 500 years or 1000 years and still have been closer to the mark than over 100. xD

Can't say "The ancient Keyblade War, over 100 years ago..."

We only know that it is very slow as Aqua did not age physically while in the outside world a decade went by. So this is not even that farfetched at all.

Possibly, all of the Foretellers have stayed in the Realm of Darkness and have felt so guilty of their selfishness in getting light that darkness manifests and take over their hearts essentially making them perfect Xehanort vessels.

So you think about a sort of self imposed exile the Foretellers choose as they went down together with the true KH at the end of the war?

There's either thousands of gods holding the same job for different areas or thousands of Joshua's haha.....oh glob what if they're all Joshuas!?

Joshua: *laughs arrogantly at all their problems* Why dont you guys make a 'game' out of it?
Goddess of Time: "I did in one world. I made an ocarina that let a not-elf kid warp time."
Mr H: *makes some graffiti while sipping coffee*
Wasn't Joshua just the "operator" for Shibuya/Tokyo anyways? So there being very many Composers (probably not all Joshuas though) is not really that farfetched.
IF they were all Joshuas though they would make Sora and his spawned "offsprings" as well as Xehanort look tame in comparison.
Sora: Let's see, I have a Nobody and a Replica made after me which identifies as female, connected with one guy who's also very simlar to me and have a dark-colored twin made from that guy's Darkness, that's 4.
Xehanort: Bitch please, I have 13.
Joshua: Pfft, amateurs, I have more than 1000.

Sora: o_0
Xehanort: >__<
Riku: *facepalms*
Neku: *gets a heart attack*

Thinking of Joshua being an arrogant jerkass somehow makes me wanting him to make an appearance in Olympus Coliseum and have several scenes with Hades.
I'd assume those scenes would be really amusing.

KH3 plot twist. *no srsly posts like this have come true before*


*remembers another "heartless" from KH1* Oh dear glob....

In before a callback to KH 1 with another mass revival, only that at the end of KH III instead of countless worlds Sora brings back all those who perished in the first Keyblade War by freeing their hearts alongside those mentioned in Blank Points.

They probably just forgot one or two 0s at the end.
over 1000 or over 10000 years is a much better estimate and would also fill the moniker of "ancient".

I could see it when you word it like that...."choosing to to remain with what's left of the world they ruined" or something to effect.

Joshua was the "composer" while Mr H, an angel, was the "producer". Despite that Joshua himself still possessed godlike power that could destroy Shibuya itself should he choose. *not arguing the point just like to talk about TWEWY* 8D
Them all literally being Joshua was more of a joke haha. The game implied the role of 'composer' can be earned or taken so I'd say there are many different beings in that position.

lol The heart attack that finally kills Xehanort.

Joshua plus Hades scenes would be awesome as anything they could possibly do! o_o

Either that or the surviving children possibly even banished them there with a "you have caused enough damage as is, out of our sights, scumbags!"-reasoning.
And yet I'm wondering how flowerboy plays into all this...

Joshua is however smug enough that I could see him getting some delight in an "army" of Joshuas, lol.

Xehanort would get his own smugness smeared back into his face if Joshua would really take him on seriously.
Xehanort: I swore to live and see what lies beyond the Keyblade War...
Joshua: Nope! *blasts Xehanort to pieces with a Jesus Beam*
Sora: That was supposed to be our Grand Finale.
Joshua: Hee hee, shut up and walk, dear.
;P
