NEW Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer coming at 1 AM EST. Are you hyped as fuck /v/?
Also, I'm loving the new artstyle. I can't wait to see delicious Aqua
I hope her model is so beautiful that I explode in my pants instantly like a pervert!
THIS is what Nomura has been working on for the past 2 years?
Do they even know their own demographic anymore? I was playing KH2 back when I was in middle school, I have my own house now.
>Trailer ends with Sora, Riku, Kairi, Namine,
>Roxas, Axel, Xion, Terra, Aqua and Ventus in a touching scene together
>KH3 "Making Of" footage shown, will remain exclusive for attendees.
>Back Cover section fo trailer showcases Foretellers (2 female, 2 male) discussing the traitor
>0.2 section of trailer features Riku and Kairi at Mysterious Tower as Yen Sid explains why it's imperative that they gather the 7 Guardians of Light in order to protect the 7 princesses of heart, and that they must also rescue Terra, Aqua and Ventus. Mickey tells Riku and Kairi that he was recently in the Realm of Darkness...
KH3 section of trailer contains full conversation between Xehanort and Eraqus playing chess
That's it. you can go home
The best thing about these models are the hair
Please tell me this is still the alpha. Seems like most of the work went into the environment instead of the character models
2008 was not 15 years ago.
>Sora locks on to 10 Heartless at once within 1.5 seconds and begins to attack at lightning speeds for a temporary period of time!
>The speedy action of the KH3 trailer surprised some.
This is the shit I really want to see.
Xehanort and Eraqus playing chess:
Xehanort: Have you heard of the Ancient Keyblade War?
Eraqus: Of course I have.
Xehanort: That thing where long, long ago, Keyblade Wielders struggled over the light.
Eraqus: Yeah, the Master's favorite story.
Xehanort: I guess they wanted to use the light they'd struggled for to make Kingdom Hearts appear, and do something.
Eraqus: Guess so… I can't understand the reason why anyone'd start a war.
Xehanort: So, you know of the Lost Masters?
Eraqus: What's that?
Xehanort: They're the ones who started the Keyblade War.
Eraqus: Never heard of them.
Xehanort: No, more like, it was for their sake… I think.
Eraqus: What are you even talking about?
Xehanort: You can drop the facade.
Eraqus: What facade?
Xehanort: On that land shall darkness prevail and light expire. You'll soon be up for masterhood candidacy, there's no way you don't know.
Xehanort: The staring eyes see all. The future, it's already been written.
Eraqus: Who's to say I can't change it, and maybe Light will prevail.
Xehanort: You're rather confident. But aren't you at a disadvantage in this match?
Eraqus: But unlike Darkness, there is more to Light that meets the eye. You might be surprised.
Xehanort: Oh, I hope so.
>tfw WW3 will likely start before this fucking game finally comes out
I want to befriend Kairi!
Update on the Osaka Team/Tokyo Team situations and some other progress:
>KHInsider @khinsider 11h11 hours ago
>"KH3 production is 90% Osaka team. 10% Tokyo team. The production videos played so smoothly, it was amaaaazing! (1/2)
>It seemed like Sora and Aqua can be moved in the current test stage" (2/2)
It's a bannable offense to call out a report, but you'd know this if you weren't a child.
>Only 10% of the Kingdom Hearts A Team working on KH 3
This kinda hurts. I wanted it to be at least 50/50. But I'm hoping that 10% influence steers Osaka Team in the right direction and they wont fuck up the boss fights.
BBS and DDD boss fights were horribly designed
No but it doesn't matter. It's not like we're the only two languages in the world with VAs for Kingdom Hearts. VAs are replaceable. It doesn't matter how famous they are.
>BBS and DDD
>Good boss fights
They were not good at all. The boss fights were horribly designed. For one they didn't get stunned at all and so you could counterattacked while in the fucking middle of attacking them.
And BBS/DDD were both way worse when it comes to spamming. This is a fact.
Christopher Lee got off the train after 358/2.
The thing about KHIII is that the voice actors died before the game was developed. Its perfectly reasonable to write the story around this and avoid a sound-alike.
The fucking fuck is this shit?
BBS and DDD were the only games with good boss fights, what the fuck?
Like seriously, what the shit?
Even Terra in KH2FM was just "learn2guard2win"
Guard was literally useless in DDD and BBS
DDD fights were fine. It just needs the mechanics from II (hitstun, revenge value, etc.) which would only really work in a game designed for command menu anyway.
Since it's aiming to play like II, I think it'll be fine
No we know bits and pieces.
Yeah but there was also a restructuring internally so it seems that there are bits and pieces of everyone scattered. Originally Nomura said that he wanted them to come back over on KH3 when FFXV was done then he got the boot, but I'm hoping that it's still gonna happen outside of this 10%.
That's a stupid thought though because of how central Master Xehanort is to KH3. They're not going to make him silent and they're not going to kill him off early. They're going to have to get a sound-a-like.
They're just tools, and it's unlikely they planned for them to die. Regardless it's not a question of what's going to happen to his character but who's going to replace Nimoy.
Terranort is the actual final boss you dumb niggerian, that's Master Xehanort's master plan from the very beginning.
You have to be fucking retarded to not realize Master Xehanort moved into Terra.
>Master Xehanort takes center stage as the true villain
>DDD, setting the stage for KHIII, climaxes with his return
>thinking that KHIII will push him to the side just because his VAs are dead
>implying old master xehanort wasn't already a placeholder for the return of terranort
The only time we would see Master Xehanort in KH3 is most likely at the very end or when he is expelled from Terra.
OK spell this one out for me
Why would old man Xehanort come back just to be Terranort again?
Do you think Terra's just been stuck somewhere waiting for Xehanort to possess him again or some shit
Master Xehanort is suppose to die by old age during the events of KH3.
Why do you think he moved to Terranort? If he could time travel he wouldn't have bothered to capture Terra.
We've all been played for the filthy gaijin we are.
>he doesn't understand what Terranort even means
Terranort is already Master Xehanort you stupid fuck. Did you even play the games? There is no "terra" anymore, he is dead, play the games fucktard
>not 100%ing the game with Terra on Critical
How's it feel to be a whiny little bitch
Sora's guard in DDD was good too.
Maybe you're just so bad that you have to abuse the I-frames from rolling
I AM FUCKING DONE FUCK THIS SHIT
>not 100%ing the game with Terra on Critical
You crazy bastard.
>Maybe you're just so bad that you have to abuse the I-frames from rolling
That's called getting gud not getting bad, fagget
If Terranort was really the central villian he would have given the speech at the end of DDD, not Master Xehanort, he would have been in the CGI opening of DDD, not Master Xehanort. Terranort, along with all his other selves are meant to be used to incite another keyblade war and let him see what awaits beyond it.
>If Terranort was really the central villian he would have given the speech at the end of DDD
No, that would have been anticlimatic, as Terranort hasn't been developed yet.
Learn some writing skills.
>not Master Xehanort, he would have been in the CGI opening of DDD, not Master Xehanort.
By your inbred definition, he should have been in the in the opening of KH1 too.
> Terranort, along with all his other selves are meant to be used to incite another keyblade war and let him see what awaits beyond it.
Yes, with Terranort as the head of the group. That's EXACTLY why he took over Terra's body. Master Xehanort is a weak piece of meme shit, Terranort is a young and healthy body.
For all intents and purposes, he is as dead as a doornail. The heart does its own thing.
Ansem looks like Terranort.
Xemnas looks like Terranort.
When they died, they returned to Terranort.
Master Xehanort was just a piece of symbolism in a game about fucking dreams, anon.
Uhh, I don't have it on hand right now but from the top of my head:
Christopher Lee (though he stopped VAing for KH after Days)
Leonard Nimoy (Master Xehanort)
Chikao Ohtsuka (Master Xehanort)
Wayne Allwine (Mickey)
Nachi Nozawa (Vexen)
Eddie Carroll (Jiminy)
And there's more that I'm forgetting.
We've seen Xion turn into Sora before. It's possible the old Nort was just a facade. He is still in Terras body, the old man thing was just some sort of illusion.
Before you laugh at this, think about it. We've seen it done before. There is no reason for him to let Terras body go, and since it was technically Terras body that split up into Ansem SoD and Xemnas, it follows it is Terranort who must return, not old Xehanort. It's old Xehanorts body that is gone. Terras is still there somewhere. Just not his heart (even though that still sleeps somewhere within Terranort) and his soul is stuck in his armor anyways.
Post yfw Frozen World is announced.
>Only a piece of his heart is in his armor
What the fuck are you talking about? Did you play the games? His heart is still in his body, he left an imprint of himself on his armour, not his heart or soul, that's why it's called Lingering Will.
Except he's shown disappearing like everyone else, and no one's saying he's let go of Terra's body.
It sort of worries me they skipped a generation of consoles, I hope it wasn't originally developed for PS3 then just moved onto the ps4.
Replaying KH1-2 I just noticed how empty the worlds felt and even the HUB worlds where there should be bustling of NPCS there are only a few
That collection is called 2.8 and it contains
BbS 0.2 -a fragmentary passage-
X Back Cover
And yes it is PS4 only as 0.2 will use KH3 assets.
> he left an imprint of himself on his armour,
Yes, its called a piece of heart.
Otherwise Xehanort would have just printed an army of armors himself retard. Do you have the IQ of a fucking worm or something?
Is posting slowing up for anyone else?
I think it's worst in Castle of Dreams personally. Someone had this idea of the Gods cheering for you in Olympus that I liked so I go with that, though I know that's not the reason.
This ps4 image got released.
It's all I really wanted to see and now I don't have to play the game to see it.
That's the upscaled/enhanced version of Dream Drop Distance which was on the 3DS. Unless you meant something else wrong with it?
Nigga that's from Dream Drop Distance and it's only Sora/Riku/Ansem the Wise imagining it. Don't remember which. Didn't really happen. Yet.
Plus there's no Lea, and he's a Keyblade Weilder now.
Oh fuck, you really don't know what you're talking about. Go back and play BBS.
What about it? I don't get it, it's a 3DS scene that lasted 2 seconds on screen. What exactly makes you not play a game for it?
It was a meaningless scene to show that Sora's power is the link with other people.
Are you saying something is wrong there or something? Fuck this connection error.
Is it me or has there been one anon/a handful of anons who have been overtly aggressive with wrong information lately? The first time it was with the timeline/the begging of 3D didn't matter because it happened in the beginning, then it was the Nomura/Sakaguchi story being wrong and then he wouldn't back up his claims using supposed sources of the story changing. He's had the nerve to call other people retarded/wikifags when they've had sources to back their shit up.
But yeah, fuck...been a while. I don't think i'll ever be able to get excited for Kingdom Hearts 3 the way I was for 2 before it came out. I must have watched Deep Dive frame by frame at least 100 times...I was also about 12 at the time.
For anybody who wants them.
>Q13: What is the true form of Lingering Sentiment?
>A: After Terra lost his body, his thoughts gathered into his armor.
>At the end of Terra’s scenario, Master Xehanort had commandeered his body, so his thoughts took control of his armor. Afterward, the armor stayed in the keyblade graveyard, until KHII FM where “Lingering Sentiment” went against Sora. Because he saw that it was not his chosen one Riku using a keyblade, but Sora, he grew suspicious and thought he had something to do with Master Xehanort and attacked him.
Blank Points/A Fragmentary Passage:
>90% Osaka team
>10% Tokyo team
can someone explain what this means for someone who doesn't keep up with development news?
Does this mean we should expect 0.2/KH3 to play more like one of the old games over another or what?
This clusterfuck keeps getting worse and worse. This is reaching Nintendo levels of disappointment
What clusterfuck? A loser made a fake tweet, the dumb journalists at KH13 and Insider believed it like the dumb fucks they are. That's it.
What more is there to it? How is that a clusterfuck? its simple as fuck
You're thinking of BBS, KH2's bosses, even the super bosses are about getting openings to attack, that's pretty much the gimmick of the Terra fight.
BBS liked making bosses that never stop fucking attacking, which forces you to spam Ven and Aqua's roll moves.
I got lots of pics of her from gelbooru.com. Look it up and search for" aqua_(kingdom_hearts)" It's uncensored on there. Not exactly a true sauce but i think you can retrace them from there.
Needs more post-realm of darkness Aqua.
Pretty sure he was talking about KH2. In both games you find openings to attack, otherwise you would never damage your opponent.
Unless, of course, you abused shit like that mines bullshit I always heard /v/ talk about, I never even unlocked them.
Mines are for plebs. People love to spam them on Vanitas Remnant because they're not gud enough to kill him using only basic attack and 40 potions as their command deck.
Makes for a better fight against him, really.
Since they're ditching the command deck for KH3, I want to say that it'll be fine. I'm still a little worried, though. I want the challenging bosses to be like the Data Organization XIII, not like Vanitas Remnant and Mysterious Figure.
BBS bosses spam attacks a shit loads, one of the worst cases are Vanitas Remant and Unknown, they outright never stop attacking you at any point.
Unknown in fact feels like he was made around Aqua and Ven's roll.
>I always have a feeling /v/ is shit at games or something.
That's probably because most of /v/ IS shit at gaming. I honestly think there are people on here who actually just rant over games rather than actually playing them, like with any flavor of the month game.
I can't respect anyone who beats Vanitas Remnant using mines. However the Mysterious Figure is just badly designed and i can't hate people for spamming surges against him, even though he got a ton easier with BbS Final Mix since you can just slide out of his Colission Magnet (the move where he pulls you up into the air, then slams down onto you.) This guy honestly just has a set amount of methods to beat, which are either spamming surged, spamming Sky Diver command style or spamming Magic Hour with Aqua. There's people who beat him without all that but we're not talking about gods here.
I don't see what's wrong with the models or graphics. But I've been here a long time and you people notice the tiniest and dumbest shit that pisses you off when it comes to graphics. If you're talking about it being glossy I don't know it looks good. And the trailer supposedly shows off the gameplay which is very speedy and I can't wait to see that. Stop being heartless.
Vanitas still has an openings, lots of openings. He doesn't "literally never stops attacking", he has a 1 second delay per combo. Maybe 2 seconds. You just have to position yourself close to him when he is about to end his combo.
Vanitas was hard, but not impossible. Much more fun to fight than Lingering Will.
>new Nobody based on Marluxia
KH2 had a lot of problems and the Nobodies were a clusterfuck plot-wise, but the actual enemy designs were pretty good, I'm hyped.
In terms of design, Heartless > Nobodies > Unversed > Dream Eaters
B-but we were so close... ;_;
Can't they just release a huge, amazing trailer like they did for KH2? I'm tired of these little teasers.
Manchild uprising against the Square Enix piggus when?
What's one more night after 10 years?
>It's discomforting to know that Nomura won't care.
His original plan was to have the Tokyo team come over onto KH3 after he and they got done with FFXV. He booted from directing FFXV and had to start KH3 so he of course used the team that he had available. New information from today says that KH3 is 90% Osaka and 10% Tokyo so maybe when FFXV is finally finished those who were still on FFXV will come over?
My one point of argument regarding the combos is that the game is in the early stages, like, womb stages. To think that Osaka would have every effect and mechanic ready is a bit jumping the gun. Otherwise he's on point. DDD feels really damn sluggish
Eh, no. KH3 is fine.
I worry about the aerial combo, I didn't notice that, but the ground combat and KH3 overall feels fast as fuck, the animations quality and speed are on par with KH2. And like he said at the beginning of the video. Its been 10 years, its more probable for Tokyo Team to not be the guys that made KH2 than for them to do it, many guys could have moved to Osaka, being replaced or fired in the meantime. Plus, more guys from the tokyo team will move to KH3 as FFXV finishes, so biggy either. 2.8 will come out a year before 3, it is clearly a beta, any issues will be solved by the time KH3 is ready to release.
We are safe, KH3 is goty. Frozen when, though?
>All the pandering to recent overrated Dreamworks-lite films.
>Problems with certain VAs.
I hope they solve them.
>Sora's new outfit looks like shit.
I can deal with. If I dealt with Sora's KH1 clothes, I can deal with this.
Still GOTY until actual real issues show up.
Kilala Princess World
Not only that, but people seem to forget we are not in the age of the PSP or PS2 any more. Though animations are things that can't really be changed, TONS of balancing can be made through patches.
It's not exactly like the game needs to be 100% perfect on release. Much can be fixed through player input (discovery of issues, glitches, etc)
It's a much better attitude than "OMG Osaka team will fuck everything up and that's that! The game is ruined!"
I'm actually quite optimistic for KH3. People need to realize that things can improve after a game is released.
Disregarding the fact that there is no confirmed Date/time for the trailer release, how many hours are left till the "assumed" time of release?
