Beat the game over the weekend. On regular difficulty it was incredibly easy but also incredibly fun.

The Pirates of the Caribbean key blade ruled, too.

0.2 is pretty awful, don't get your hopes up

I played it last year, and it's probably safe to say it was the worst "game" that I actually had the chance to play.

It feels really weird, and it's more of a cheap tech demo that feels like it wasn't made for the public.

Also, has nobody else gotten the secret ending? :doge

0.2 was supposed to be the beginning of III, it probably wouldn't have felt fragmented if delivered that way.

I got the secret ending, too.

.2 is just not very exciting and the controls are clunky. but it was like 3 hours long so eh.

as for the secret endings:
spoiler (click to show/hide)
setting up the old guild leaders as the new villains is eh because all of them are pretty boring except Luxu and the Master of Masters is fucking terrible. dude acts like a G rated Deadpool. having the next game's focus on Sora coming back to life is kinda neat though, and if they put an actual Versus XIII world in that would be hilarious and a lot of fun.

I really can't express the level of internal pain I experienced when I beat KH3 and realized that even though I've played like nine full length jrpgs and digested like 300 hours of this story over the past 15 years, the game that matters the most for understanding so much of the series currently is the shitty fucking phone game. Coded amounts to a couple lines of dialogue, BBS and 358/2 get a few rushed cutscenes, but Chain of Memories, DDD, and the phone game comprise the backbone of the plot, with basically every endgame reveal banking on you being deep into phone game lore. Kill me.

It really is pretty shitty that,

1. They had three "numbered" KH entries, as if it was a self contained trilogy you could play and understand.
2. The most important plot points were in the least popular games.

I would love to know how Nomura got buy in from so many people across Square Enix Eidos AND Disney to create this.

I don't think we will ever see a piece of media so batshit insane in scope and logistics again.

Fun fact: if you download and start up the phone game right now, there's a popup that says "Hello KH3 gamers! Start playing through the story of this mobile title to see what  crucial lore you can learn! This boy is named Ephemer, and when you meet him the story really begins!"

And the rest of the DLCs that got cancelled are being released as a novel!

But I remember this shit back when I was playing The Pied Piper on 8-bit mobile for Xenosaga ep1 tie-in, or ZoE where you had to watch the anime, play the GBA game and ZoE1 for ZoE2. Or Destiny 1 where you had to read the online lore cards. Game industry's been doing this shit forever. I'm surprised MGS never went in that direction and the most you ever had to play was a PSP game with Peace Walker. Portable Ops was like never mentioned again and the old MSX/NES originals barely mattered after MGS1.

The only thing that was needed for ZOE2 was ZOE1. And you probably would've been fine if you hadn't played it.

I've never seen the anime or played that SRPG GBA game, and ZOE2 made as much as sense as it was ever gonna.

I downloaded it. You have to play 6 tutorial missions, then choose if you're going to download the HD textures or not, then sit through some more nonsense AND THEN it tells you that the KH3 stuff starts in mission 362!!!

The game requires too much effort when playing against trash mobs which is a giant sin for Gacha RPGs. I've only gone through about about 14 missions in 3 days since downloading this. It's incredibly unfun even by gacha standards.

Yeah, I love KH and hate mobile and couldn’t last more than a dozen or two missions in when it came out. Mobile games are always so fucking long with 1,000 missions of the same thing over and over since they want to keep you playing and paying for months/years. Concept does not gel with me.

The ride never ends.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/11d1TKd4ZKZd41pJKQ77bKz4YxJx8_Mojz2KMpNvTrvU/preview

I dont understand the significance of this; theyre claiming the whole game is a dream but it happened anyway, while implying that Nomura is subtly hinting at the dream in ways that are so fucking subtle it would be entirely unprecedented.

We have seen, at this point, 15 years and over 200 hours od this man's work. He is not capable of subtlety. The only thing that has even approached that level of abstraction is the KH1 secret movie, which was designed as literally random bullshit that KH2's plot had to build itself around after the fact.

The next game is going to be a spinoff game where you play as Sora and Riku to set up KH4, just like Chain of memories and just like Dream Drop. The exact intricacies of KH3's science are entirely irrelevant to that, and no amount of "theorizing" has proven itself reliable in the past 10 years. When Nomura wants to make something known, its blatant.

In the grand scheme of things it doesn't actually matter, but it does give some possible retroactive explanations for various inconsistencies and whatnot (especially around the gameplay systems.)

With that in mind, most of it is probably fans overthinking, but some of the stuff (particularly around Kairi and even the insane logo detail thing) could bear out in a Final Mix.

I'm hoping that Remind will be a full overhaul of KH3 like the Final Mixes of 1 and 2. 3 was fun but ultimately so shallow that it almost felt forgettable. game really needs some more variety to the gameplay and extra sidequests to give it some meat.

I'm really split that Nomura actually seems to be doing some stupid grant morrison shit with his cancelled games. Trailer ends with Sora and the Versus Noctis reciting the same dialogue = why


Other than that, this showed basically what you expect. A boss arena and a ME3 style ending enhancer. I'll get it, I'll beat it.

Are they charging for this DLC?

It's going to be at least twenty dollars if not more

Yozora is blatantly Noctis.  :lol that post credits scene of KH3 shows Sora and Riku in TWEWY and Versus XIII, respectively, nomura's two cancelled passion projects. And now, Yozora, who is literally nothing but a noctis stand in from a fictional hit rpg series, is seemingly an important figure to the franchise's future. Nomura is dumbbb

The amount of content in this is worth nowhere near $30, considering how much of it is fixes for the base game. 13 boss fights and an epilogue chapter is seemingly most of what you're getting on top of that.

That price is some classic high on your own supply Square hubris, and even though I'll be buying it I can't imagine it'll be worth much more than half that for anyone who isn't a superfan.

I haven’t played through KH3 yet.

So basically, there's going to be a patch for the main game that includes new abilities, keyblades, and some minor gameplay stuff like photo mode, difficulty options, etc. There may be more new or changed stuff added to the base game with this patch, but there is no info yet.

ReMind is a $30 DLC that gives you:
-ReMind episode, an expanded/directors cut/not rushed ending
-Limit Episode, endgame boss rush stuff
-secret episode, an epilogue

The stuff you pay for is almost exclusively isolated to the end, but we'll see if the update does anything to the rest of base KH3.

Sounds like the new episode can be done in 3-4 hours. The extra boss battles probably will take way longer than that, but I'm in the same boat as you in just wanting to play the new story stuff.

The moves that they added to Sora's moveset are really, really good, and bring his mobility much more in line with his KH2 self. The update didn't alter any content in the main game, just enhanced the visuals in places (cleaned up CG, redid skyboxes, made some character models nicer), but it plays better.

I'll jump into the new postgame/boss fight stuff later.

I'm not sure if you can utilize them during the new episodes, but they added a bunch of cheat settings you can now use during the main game, so if it allows that you should be able to coast through no matter what.

the extra fights in KH2 were like raid- tier difficulty in that you'd get slaughtered if you tried to brute force most the fights. toy had to come up with specific strategies to deal with some of their moves. really most optional bosses in the series are like this so I expect that these new fights will be no different.

I'm pretty sure you can play it at whatever you feel like. I'll be playing at Proud mode.

Also to get the new keyblades, Oathkeeper you need to find all lucky emblems, and for Oblivion you need to beat it on Critical mode.

But both blades aren't broken or anything, Ultima Blade still seems to be the best to use.
