I won't call out any specific prediction given I didn't make one myself, but after reading through this thread, they are nearly as bad as God of War III, Gran Turismo 5, and Heavy Rain's were. A few of you were waaaaay off! :P

Honestly I think it's just Nintendo fans who are salty about these games (big Japanese games like KH,MH etc.) not being on their platform of choice. Because I can't explain the pessimism around these games that clearly have signs of success (a lot of hype etc.).

 I don't blame them. They've been exposed to the series (far more than the Xbox fanbase). Not saying anyone is entitled, but I'd understand that frustration.

Sorry KH fans. KH is one of my favorite franchises, but it's been too long since the last mainline game. Hype has definitely died down for the series as a whole. The last game got just over 4 million lifetime. This one will get even less than that. It's releasing 13 years later after many have lost interest after several confusing spinoffs that make it impossible to follow the story unless you're a diehard fan. And there are a lot of diehard KH fans, but not more than there were 13 years ago. It'll probably sell half its lifetime sales or more in the first week, so being generous...

WW: 2 million shipped+digital
NA: 1 million shipped+digital
EU: 300k shipped+digital
Japan: 600k shipped+digital
RoW: 100k shipped+digital

You were off by 3m, ouch, lol.

Crows are about to get served.

And I was said that 10 million units was impossible because Kh would never pass FF...

Hey, crow has NEVER tasted so good. So happy for Kingdom Hearts 3!

I tend not to make predictions unless I'd want to eat the crow when I'm wrong, and this is indeed some tasty crow. I'm the happiest person in this thread, you know. Now I just need to find where all these Kindgom Hearts fans have been all these years. Are there new KH fans now? The only thing that sucks for me is that I'm in a bit of a financial crisis right now and can't afford the game, so I'm shit out of luck until probably May at the earliest. That's the painful part, this crow is my only comfort.

Hopefully you get to play it soon. I am really enjoying it so far personally.

Trust me, as much as I'd love Kingdom Hearts on Switch, I'm happier than any of you all. Kingdom Hearts is my favorite franchise after Zelda. I've just been so jaded about the whole series leading up to this release because it seemed like it would never come, and the only time I ever heard anyone talk about Kingdom Hearts was to make fun of it, and suddenly Kingdom Hearts 3 is announced after a literal dozen years and maybe it's just the crowds I run in but even the people I used to talk to about Kingdom Hearts back in the day weren't all that psyched for it, so I was pretty jaded and cynical as a coping mechanism. I can't speak for the other naysayers though.

Thanks man. I've heard people shitting on it so I'm glad to hear the real fans are pretty pleased so far. Now I just need to figure out how to survive a couple months without spoilers :(

Yeah, I'm really not sure why some people are shitting on it. My only real complaint so far is that it seems like it will be short. I just hit the 25 hour mark, and I only have 2.5 Disney worlds left ahead of me plus some original KH worlds, and I have been getting all collectibles and doing the minigames as I go. When Nomura said the reason for the lower number of Disney worlds relative to KH1 and especially KH2 was because they wanted to do fewer, larger worlds that felt like a whole game each, I was hoping for 4 or 5 hours per world at least, but so far only the Tangled world has been as long as I was hoping for (and my favorite world in the game so far), while one world in particular was extremely short (like 25 minutes). 

Other than that the gameplay is the best in the series to date, the story is good so far, the graphics and art design are good, and the music is great as usual.

YYour not the only one, I got the game day one but because of things hapening I barely put like 5 hours into it in this whole time. I hope I dont get the game spoiled. I friend went and texted me trying to screw me, but thanxs to the text preview that only shows the first few word I got saved. Just got to ignore the guy now :p
