Forums - Sony Discussion - Kingdom Hearts 2.8... Wtf?

They desperately need to release the KH and KH2 remasters on PS4. And Vita too please. This is arguably the worst in the series. Although the flow motion thing is cool.

DDS is top tier gameplay wise even if the story is weak (but its a spin off so thats acceptable), plus it recaps all the other previous games. Its much better than COM, Coded, and 358/2.

It's not impossible for them to put I.5 and II.5 on PS4 later down the road, but I agree, what a fucking confusing choice, and also, it's II.8 The Final Chapter Prologue, you simpleton...

...no, seriously, Squeenix game names physically hurt me.


Surely it's a perfectly logical choice given their previous decision to move away from PS2 to both DS and PSP then onto 3DS with their releases? Going to PS3 for the re-releases then PS4 for the handheld titles suddenly makes perfect sense IMO :D



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

So much milk. It's insane.



You should check out my YouTube channel, The Golden Bolt!  I review all types of video games, both classic and modern, and I also give short flyover reviews of the free games each month on PlayStation Plus to tell you if they're worth downloading.  After all, the games may be free, but your time is valuable!

I didn't really see it as a spinoff. Both BBS and DDD (they sound like bra sizes for Total Recall aliens) were pretty high in production values and part of the same "canon" so I just saw them as mainline entries in the series.

some more info about kh x and bbs volume 2

KINGDOM HEARTS χ [chi] Back Cover
"[...]It is a full story about the mystery of the Foretellers happening on the other side of the PC Browser/Smartphone games KINGDOM HEARTS Chi & Unchained Chi that is being recorded as a fully HD video work. It is an important story that expands on the future of the KINGDOM HEARTS series."

sounds and looks like back cover is some sort of 3d movie retelling of KH X

 

KINGDOM HEARTS 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage
"[...]Immediately after KH3D, as Sora prepares for the final battle, the King confesses a lot of things that were kept secret. It is the subsequent story of one person named Aqua left behind in the Realm of Darkness that is finally told."

Even if the story is weak, KH3D is an main game(Not a numbered title like BBS, which is KH0, KH1, and 2), as stated by Tetsuya Nomura. It's KH3 Part 1, and the "3" in 3D references KH3 because it leads into it. It was made very quickly and doesnt move the plot enough to be considered an numbered title.



I'm kinda starting to wonder if SE will just cancel the Xbox version of KH3 at this point as it makes to no sense to port such a big game to a fan base that will have no prior entries in the series.

With the way ps4 is selling, plus the price cut for japan in a few weeks, it almosts seems like they could make up whatever small number of sales the Xbox version would have possibly brung them.


Plus it would allow them to make one full version and put their best effort into it.

I'm no expert, it just seems silly to me on SE's part to keep the older games from Xbox.

It also references the platform and the name (Dream Drop Distance). In fact, its very heavily parallels COM:

COM takes place in b/w 1 and 2 | DDD takes place in b/w 2 and 3

COM and DDD are on Nintendo Portables

COM and DDD have Sora and RIku as main characters

COM and DDD take place out of the normal realm of light, COM is in Castle Oblivion -> Realm of In between, DDD is realm of dreams

COM and DDD use experimental battle systems, COM used card system, DDD uses an improved deck system, deck system originates from BBS but is the evolution of the card system.

DDD sets up KH3 the same way, COM did for KH2 (Introducing the Organization 13)

The actual reason DDD is not numbered is because its not Sora's story, yes things happen to Sora, but like COM, its not plot related and serves as build up for KH3 (Specifically, Sora and Riku's Mark of Mastery Exam, and why they are the way they are in the beginning of KH3, (spoiler alert, look at the clothes sora wears in the KH3 recent gameplay trailer as well as his keyblade), and How Xenahort is starting up his plan) <- both things already mentioned at the end of KH2.

I say the plot is weak as a concession, I personally didn't mind that nothing really happened, and what happened to Sora nad Riku was pretty engaging.

At the same time, this is what happens when you mix Inception AND time travel.

They probably changed the name from 2.9 to 2.8 for this new collection so they can release the 1.5+2.5 as 2.9 some time later so I'm sure the re-release of those titles will come eventually.

Well, if you do the math: Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + Kingdom Hearts 2.5 = Kingdom Hearts 4, so  knowing Squeenix' trolling history,they will actually make us wait a very long time for that to ever happen!
