    Hey guys, Im located in australia so the game still isnt released down here till the end of the year:mad: so um i was wondering, due to the fact it was released in the US on march 28 of this year, if anyone has it and what their thoughts are about the game. I was also asking if there was a special significance on the number 12 in this game, just due to the fact that all the clips ive downloaded have the numbeer 12 counting down to 1 and each time the roman numeral comes up a sentence or words appear. They kinda look to me as laws or something like that. Anyway i just really want to noe about more goss

    Not sure about the number 12 thing, but I do know that the game is amazing. The fighting system is the same, and the small annoying little issues that were in the first one (ie. Having to scroll down the menu to open a door, talk, etc.) have been replaced by just pressing the triangle button.




    Plus, can we say 2 Keyblades? :innocent:

    I think you mean 13, and it's relevant to the Organization 13 which you learn all about in Kingdom Hearts 2.

    soz yeah it was 13, ive got several clips from the game and um yea like i see the roman numerals count down in each of them. But as they do several words appear with them, problem is they scroll down too fast to be able to make them out. And with the two keyblade thing, how freaked am i about that it looks awesome on the clips, but wouldnt it be a lil hard to control them both?

    So there's quite a bit of rumors going around the Disney won't be involved in Kingdom Hearts 3 (yes, it is in the works, appearently) due to the hidden ending. You can watch it somewhere on YouTube.

    Thoughts?

    I seriously thought the Disney parts were crap. Seriously, all you do is re-enact the plot from the movie that you're in (although I must give props for using the plot of Return of Jafar).

    Rework the Disney parts and get REAL PEOPLE to voice the FF characters. Because those voiceovers were... YEAH.

    I don't know what I'd do without Disney in the mix though... would they still be able to use the characters? (I haven't seen the hidden ending, so yeah)

    Okay, I just realized I worded that post wrong, but yeah. Disney wouldn't be involved because they didn't like the ending, but because of where the series is going. All I'll say about the hidden ending is that it hints at total war, which is something that my friends and I agreed that it is a direction that Disney just wouldn't take.

    what could
    possibly be rong with the ending that disney would want to pull out.like the fact that disney is in this game gives it its original flavour and is a part of why it is good

    I wouldn't mind if they got rid of the Disney stuff in the game. It'd make it less likely for me to get made fun of when I tell my friends that I play the game haha. Anyway, the hidden ending is really mysterious and there was an interview with the creator about a KH3 in which he said that it wouldn't be a sequel but it wouldn't be a prequel either. He also said something along the lines of it not being in the same storyline as the last two. It's really all too confusing.

    I'm wishfully thinking that the third installment will take on a story that brings together every character from the Final Fantasy series and they'll all be given a bigger role in this next installment. An event would cause all of main characters from each FF which links all these characters into the story. Who knows, maybe they'll include characters from others games that can relate to these characters, for an example, Dante from Devil May Cry.

    It's possible =P

    Square-Enix working with Capcom (Dante from DMC)?

    That's like them working with Disney!

    Like THAT will ever happen.

    I'm playing this in my spare time and I have to say... I underestimated the series. I never bothered to play the first one (due to it's "cute" overtone), but I have to say I like this style of RPG over the Final Fantasy series. I mostly like this style because of it's real-time strategy element. I don't have to wait my turn to unleash a combo or cast my magic or something to that extent. It's fun, but I've just gotten to having to backtrack for new chapters, and it's getting a bit repetitive.

    The voice acting is horrible at some points, though. It seems so lifeless, more or less the Final Fantasy characters and the Kingdom Heart characters. Other than that, the graphics are beautiful and some of the fights are absolutely breathtaking in terms of how many enemies could be on the screen at once. So far my only arguments are epic battles are short and so far, seldom. Hopefully if Disney is pulling out, they can up the viciousness a bit.

    Anyways, from what I can tell from this story, losing Disney at this point wouldn't hurt the series. The areas which you fight along side Disney's characters seem more of an "add-on" rather than really an integration of brands. You more or less just take part in the original story than have it end somehow that relates to the story aside from "bad-guy-causes-problem," etc. Although I must admit that playing in movies I grew up watching was awesome. :D

    Overall, although I'm not finished with the game, I'd give it an 8/10 or so. It's solid in gameplay (aside from that stupid Little Mermaid level), but falls short in the story and some of the voice acting.
