Forums - Gaming Discussion - Playable character in Kingdom Hearts III Leak [SPOILER]

Vodacixi said:
I don't know how much information do you provide here, I don't know if you're trying to be careful for the sake of people who want to avoid spoilers. Really, I don't care. I'm just here ask you not do this. Youtube and many sites on the internet are already filled with spoilers and leaks. I can't literally go through my recommended without seeing something. And I don't want to come here and see "KH III, NEW PLAYABLE CHARACTER LEAK, OMG, COME HERE IT'S AWESOME".

Thank you.

I don't mention the character by name, but in the opening post I provide a clickable link where you can see a cropped out image of the character if you click it.
The other images I've posted in other replies are unrelated to the topic, but rather talking about other KH games and whether they are worth playing, etc.

Others in this thread have avoided mentioning the character by name as well, though some comments have been made that could be seen as a hint, so I would not recommend anyone read this topic unless they are ok with knowing who the playable character is.

I posted this because I know there are people who want to know about playable characters, even if they don't want to hear anything else about the game.
Since Kingdom Hearts games essentially always have multiple playable characters (even in KH1, you get to play as a Heartless, for example) the headline itself shouldn't be a problem.

You said that as if you were the only one that can provide that information to others. As I said, there are many places already to find all the information one might want about KHIII. If someone wants to know, don't worry friendly neighbour, they will do it without you.

With this you're not helping anyone. You're scaring people who wants to avoid spoilers. There hasn't been any other leak thread on the site recently, so people may assume they are safe here. Unluckily for them, you're here. Even if there's really no spoilers in the thread itself, seeing something like this on the Hot Topics section creates pointless insecurity.

No, but you're saying that as if people who are not interested in this information somehow have to click my topic, and then also click the link I provided in it to get to that information?
What is the problem exactly? Even if someone somehow didn't see my multiple spoiler tags in CAPS, or accidentally clicked on the topic, it'd be rather hard for them to accidentally spoil themselves due to how I structured my post. You actually have to click the link I provided to get the information.

As for 'other places providing this information', that's probably a great way to risk accidentally seeing spoilers you didn't want to see. I would never intentionally go to a site like that to seek out spoiler information for a game like this, and I imagine most people are weary of doing that as well. I always click *Not interested* on KH3 Youtube videos, so that something won't show up in my recommendation feed. I block KH related words on Twitter, etc.

In spite of that, I just happened to come across this one single piece of information by accident that seemed to reveal the one thing I was ok with knowing before the game came out. So I inspected it.
And now I'm sharing one specific thing with people, and nothing else, so there's no risk of seeing anything else you didn't want to know. Even if you wanted to get to this information on another site, you'd potentially have to navigate through a minefield to get to it. But if I saw a topic on this forum with the same title, I'd cautiously check it out.

And I'm sharing it because I've talked to people who also wanted to know about this specific thing, but nothing about the story, etc.
It's hard to seek that out by yourself, so I made this topic partially to help out with that, and also to hear what people think about this.
Some people in here liked this information. If you're not interested in it, you don't click the topic, or the link in my opening post.
Like I said earlier, essentially every KH game has multiple playable characters in one way or another, so that in itself is an expected series staple. Not to mention Square Enix even show that in one of the trailers.

Yeah, that one sounds like the best deal.
I have played X actually. If it's worth playing? Well, it's a mobile gacha game, and it plays completely different from any other KH game. It's not something I'd recommend someone to play for the story, but rather if you happen to enjoy things like collecting your favorite characters, and the gameplay mechanics of the game.

You use in-game currency to get random characters and hope you get lucky to get the ones you want. Though the characters are usually guaranteed after a certain number of tries, which makes it possible for people to play and get most of the characters they want even without spending real money on the game (which I don't).

It can be nice for killing a few minutes here and there, and there are some interesting strategies for completing some fights in the game.

That said, my interest in it has waned a lot, to the point where I now just log in for the daily log in bonus (in-game currency), and save them for when a character I'm interested in shows up. I don't really play it any more. But that could change if they add some interesting new modes.
It's free to download, so you could always give it a try and see if it's something you'd want to keep playing for a while.

The story may be worth knowing though, whether you get it from playing the game or looking at the videos featured in the PS4 game KH:TSSF. I say 'may be' because they may summarize the important bits in KH3.

One thing to note though is that KHUX's story, including the part about the Org XIII member I mentioned, still hasn't concluded. (They add more story every now and then through updates.) Which is interesting, since KH3 will be out in a few days. So I guess I'll get most of my answers about these characters in KH3 first?

Huh. It sounds kind of like Fire Emblem Heroes then. I might give it a shot, but I won't spend any money on it. If I play it during little bits of downtime, by the time I get through BBS and DDD, they might be done with X's story and I could go into KH3 fully updated. I'm sure the bits in TSSF would be enough to get me up to speed if it's still not all out by then though. I won't let a mobile game stop me from finally playing Kingdom Hearts 3 after a decade+ wait.

Yeah, the 'gacha' (gambling for rare units) element of it is the same as in Fire Emblem Heroes. Though Heroes at least plays similar to the real Fire Emblem.
It's nice that you plan to catch up on the full story before KH3. I plan to do the same, sort of. I have Coded and Dream Drop Distance left, but I think I'll skip playing Coded, and just potentially watch the story in video form. I already know the jist of DDD's story since I looked it up when I didn't think I'd play it, but since it got an HD Remaster, I'll give it a go before KH3 comes out. I have a 3DS but usually I'm not keen on using it for 3D games due to the analog and lack of camera control options.

Depending on how long it takes you to get through these games, I hope you're successful in avoiding seeing any KH3 related spoilers you're not interested in learning before playing the game, because that can be a challenge. Everyone in this topic has been responsible so far and didn't even mention the character by name even without me asking them to do so, but you never know when someone might show up and blurt something out.

Though I managed to avoid Metal Gear Solid 4 spoilers for like 5 years, so a few days/weeks for KH3 shouldn't be a problem.

Yeah I caught on quick and avoided mentioning even gender pronouns just in case that gave people a hint. I'm pretty good at avoiding spoilers (went into Zelda BotW with just what I knew from the E3 stuff, and know absolutely nothing about KH3 beyond its E3 trailer, and what I saw here). Personally I don't consider what you showed here as something I'd want to avoid spoiling, so I looked, but I know some people would rather not and I respect that.

If you want to finish before or shortly after KH3 releases, definitely don't waste time with Coded. In my experience, it just wasn't very fun, and felt mostly like another review of KH1. I tend to try to play everything on its original console when I can, and did up to this point, but I'll have to make exceptions from here on out to save time. Not save time to avoid spoilers, that's not hard, but rather save time because I can't wait. I guess it's my own fault for letting the game sneak up on me when I had several months notice, but I've just been so caught up in my backlog, and then Smash came out...but no more! I'm gonna make it my top gaming priority to catch up on Kingdom Hearts and finally play KH3!

Yeah, someone else did the same, and that was nice to see. Even though I figured people clicking on this topic will primarily be those who are ok with finding out the identity of the character, there's a chance that someone may not be. And so far, one person wasn't. So I'm glad other people were thinking the same way.
Speaking of which, I'm currently asking him what exactly he finds problematic with my topic, but he did essentially say that my topic wouldn't be helpful to anyone because people can just look this up on other sites.
But given what you just said, you seem to be exactly the the type of person this topic was aimed towards.

Is it fair to say that you'd worry about accidentally seeing other spoilers you wouldn't want to see, if you were to venture into some Kingdom Hearts community site that's full of spoilers, or a Youtube channel posting a bunch of footage from a leaked copy of the game?
Because that was the case for me. I wouldn't actually try to dig this info up in those places because it's like going through a minefield. I happened to come by this info by chance, and took a look to see if it really was what it seemed to be, and then I thought I'd try to help some other like-minded people who may be interested in this particular info, but would want to avoid most other story related info, by making a topic that appears to have little risk in getting anything else spoiled in the process.

Even by doing that, I get that some people who may be curious to see if the character mentioned in the topic title is who they are hoping for, are still worried that other things would be spoiled in the process, and decide not to read the thread. Very understandable. But at least a few people 'took that chance' seemingly, and if it helped them by avoiding other spoilers, that's exactly why I made the topic.

Well that and if they wanted to share their thoughts on it, I wanted to hear that as well.
You for example said something that surprised me a bit, which I thought was interesting. That you were looking forward to this character even though you hadn't played certain games in the series. Which may be a testament to characters design, if people are drawn to them before getting to know them. Some times I see a character and immediately feel 'I'm probably going to like this character'. Recently that was the case for me in Persona 5 with Joker and Queen, just from watching trailers.

Not save time to avoid spoilers, that's not hard, but rather save time because I can't wait.

I'm gonna make it my top gaming priority to catch up on Kingdom Hearts and finally play KH3!

From what I've read about Coded's story, it did sound almost like an ambitious recap of KH1, with elements and characters of other games added as well, so I'm not surprised to hear you describe it that way.
I did check out the secret ending on Youtube though, since I heard it's significant to the main plot. And about that, since you said you tend to play these on their original system, apparently the secret ending to Coded is exclusive to the HD 2.5 ReMIX cinematic version. So if your only experience with Coded is the DS version, you may want to look up the secret ending on Youtube.
Though since you haven't played BBS yet (and I take it you haven't played DDD either?) it's probably best if you check out Coded's secret ending after you finish BBS, because it revolves around the main villain's plan, after the events of BBS and leading into DDD.

I didn't pick up Smash yet, but I also need to finish Persona 5 before KH3 comes out, so there is that as well. But KH3's impending release has motivated me to get through my backlog finally, which I started doing last week!

The topic seems pretty reasonable to me. Some people are really sensitive to spoilers, but you clearly indicated in your title that a spoiler was included and precisely what the spoiler was. If anything, someone who wanted to avoid all spoilers would have a better idea of what to avoid, though they would know that an unexpected character was playable, or at the very least that it wasn't going to just be Sora.

Yeah, during these periods where I know everything I want to know about a game that's coming out and am avoiding spoilers, I know exactly which Youtube channels and gaming communities to avoid because careless people post things without thinking, and which channels can still be watched so long as I avoid the comments (some creators are very sensitive to spoilers, which is nice). However I also tend to avoid any place at all really where spoilery news is frequently shared, at least leading up to a release like this, so I would never have found this info out otherwise. I'm definitely the sort of person you were hoping to reach, who tends to avoid spoilers but might be okay with this specific piece of info.

Yeah, everything I've seen and heard about the character in question has made me more interested in them, and they're precisely who I want to play as the most when I finally get to that point. So honestly, when I saw your topic, I actually guessed it was that character and clicked because I was hoping I was right, I'm that convinced I'll like them.

Thanks for the warning on Coded. I was close to the end when I gave up on it, so I guess I'll finish the DS version and just watch the secret ending when I'm ready for it. But yeah, that's basically what Coded is.

Yeah I never got Persona 5 but it's definitely on my to do list, I want to get it and play it before Joker comes out for Smash.
