Why Kingdom Hearts III should have Multiplayer

Chris, of KHPlanet writes: This article is in response to Luke Frazier of the Gamer Association. He states in his article, “Five Reasons to Keep Multiplayer Out of Kingdom Hearts III”, that Kingdom Hearts III should not have multiplayer because it would take away time from the development of the third game and that people would not want to play this mode for several other reasons. Kingdom Hearts is also my favorite franchise and like Luke Frazier, I grew up with it during my middle school years. I do think, despite our likenesses, that he is wrong.

The combat of KH is very manic and can be a bit hit or miss. Can't see it being enjoyable in an online environment

The combat worked for Birth By Sleep's multiplayer in a 1v1 environment.

BSS's combat system was nearly perfect too.

no not at all i rather have 30-40hrs of great single player content than useless MP that only handful of people will play and even they are playing for trophies.

I will make it simple and easy to understand

not every game should have MP if you can produce a great single player which is 12-15hrs long game will sell

Lol...this game should never have an online mode

With the amount of time we've been waiting for this I expect at least a really long, well developed single player.

Plus multiplayer takes away alot from the game, Bioshock 2 seem like it lost alot of it's story. Just to have multiplayer added and the same can be said for Mass Effect 3.

Kingdom hearts 3+ Multiplayer?

hahahahhaha no. Make a Kingdom hearts fighting game or something if you want "multiplayer". The story should be the sole focus and dedication. Not multiplayer. Not at all.

Just stop. Multiplayer has NO place in KH3.

After the initial reflexive "baulk" at the idea of KH multiplayer, ideas (including the ones mentioned in this article) have been spinning in my head.

You know what? I'm not hating the idea. I've never played Dissidia 2 myself, but I've seen a lot of it (friends with PSPs). If they can make a 3v3 version of that, then I'd be ok with that.

Of course, they can still leave it out completely if they want, I'm not complaining. :)

ugh multiplay dose not need to be in every freaking game...but there is no talking to people who have no sense of story or plot

Go to hell. No multiplayer in KH3!

Co op could be implemented but it would have to be a bit restrictive to probably riku or something. A boss battle rush mode could be cool wouldn't really need a story for that.

NO NO NO, who the heck came up with this idea! KH dont neede multiplayer
TheDivine  +   1261d ago
YES it does!!! I wouldnt have thought so until Kid Icarus Uprising came out and its one of the best MP games ive ever played. Its very similar to KH, it would work well with grinding and powerups.

Doesnt DDD have MP already though? If so we will have to see how well it works when it drops here next month. I know the one ds title had co-op and it worked well.
