Oh hell no!!!!
We're still going through "everything needs MP" era I see. If people want MP just go play FF14:RR and pretend your weapon is a keyblade.
Three signs that a good series is going downhill: 1. Goes to Xbox/Tries to please the west/Tries to get COD fanbase 2. Adds multiplayer to a mainly singleplayer focused game 3. Milk
Just so they can do the Online Pass bull crap on the PS4.
"1. Goes to Xbox/Tries to please the west/Tries to get COD fanbase" They tried that with FFXIII... http://www.x360magazine.com... And then look what happened... MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR Facepalm...
you guys do know Birth by sleep had multiplayer right? You could fight together in the arena and against each other with what ever commands you wanted to. Its certainly not needed but if it functions how it did like BBS just more refined it will be just fine. But the game certainly doesnt need any multiplayer.
They better bloody not
After seeing FFXV and KHIII announced, I felt nothing but happiness for Square Enix, that they were finally listening to their fans and are going to fix the major problems FFXIII and XIV did. But then I woke this morning... And found out they are also going to be on X1. OH HECK NAW!!! I'm not gonna bring up the fact that FFXIII had content cut out because of the Xbox 360's storage limitations, since all three next gen consoles are using Bluray now (Nintendo using their own form of Bluray so they don't have to pay royalties). However, Toriyama was a giant Western fan. He even said he wanted Final Fantasy to be more like FPSs or something like that. He wanted to put western focus on FFXIII. I'm not saying catering to western fans and the Xbox fans made Final Fantasy horrible, or that Sony wouldn't have also wanted KHIII to have an online component. It's just well known that many devs try to cater to the FPS and western crowd too much. And if this affects Kingdom Hearts, I'll be damn disappointed.
Will you all still feel this way if the single player game turns out to be the best in the series and have the best story ? Then how much would multiplayer matter ? Wouldn't it just then be an added bonus ?
Give me to keybaldes and let me fight like its Sword Art Online
Just dont its not needed.
Its kind of sad if they make it without multiplayer (which I hope they do) people with Xbox One will unfortunately still need an internet connection in order to play.
and now square enix is drunk again
I don't see the big deal. Birth By Sleep had some type of co-op/versus mode IIRC, and no one complained about that.
I disliked the multiplayer aspect of BBS.
Why didn't you like it? (honest question) I never played it, I only played a small bit of the game before I just let my cousin borrow it since he's such a huge fan, lol.
This is just ridiculous u better not Square unless by multiplayer you mean co op only thing i would accept, get a friend to follow the story with.
People seem to forget this is the same team that did Birth by Sleep and what did Birth by Sleep have? A multiplayer mode.
As long as its not a force. And its made after everything is done with the SP. Kinda like The Last of Us
They had Multiplayer in some previous kingdom hearts games...and it worked well.
358/2 taking down heartless were fun.
I can't wait for the season pass and day-1 downloadable content for Kingdom Hearts 3! /s
For people who keep bringing up Birth By Sleep SPIN OFF/PREQUEL Kingdom Hearts 3 MAIN TITLE SERIES
So the next COD shouldn't have multiplayer? Or KillZone? Multiplayer; though I never used it, did sound pretty cool in 358/2 and BBS and guess what else? It didn't affect my enjoyment of the single player at all... I forgot it was there at all until you mentioned it
Just because it's a spin-off doesn't mean much, though. For the most part, BBS had the same gameplay as KH1 & 2 did, with some improvements here and there. Same story progression, etc. The only thing that KH3 being a main title series means is that maybe they'll finally get around to progressing the story instead of randomly introducing new concepts and filler out of nowhere.
Birth by sleep could be a main title it was just that important to the story more so than the other side games imo
Bring it on.
I think it would be kinda cool
The only way I can see this being a good idea is if we can make are own characters for it. Otherwise I don't think its a good idea.
Hmmmm, well they had an online multiplayer component in Birth by Sleep. I suppose it wasn't really necessary though. I did everything it had on offer without the need of other players. I suppose I'd be fine with it if it met the following criteria: 1. In Birth by Sleep, you can get a lot of the best stuff in the game by completing the Mirage Arena, but since the Ps4 now requires a fee to play online, I think it'd be better if the multiplayer was completely separate from the single player, i.e. you don't need to play it to get say, the Ultima Weapon, or in other words, you need to pay to get the Ultima Weapon, and who knows what that'd prevent you from doing- the superbosses you'd never be able to beat. 2. That it doesn't detract from the single player experience is super important. This is the last game of the Xehanort Saga, so surely it should be the most epic single player KH experience to date. Developing a multiplayer component, you run the risk of detracting from the single player, be it through development costs, or deadlines to meet. It could also hurt the overall creative and imaginative focus on the single player aspect.
no thank u! i play kingdom hearts for the story!
Birth by Sleep had online multiplayer and it was fantastic. People are morons.
Pleses nooo w
Did multiplayer hurt uncharted? Just saying, it doesn't have to be one or the other when it comes to multiplayer vs. single player.
It didn't hurt it because It was kept very separate from the single players. If they do that it is fine, but most companies do not understand that mutliplayer doesn't have to affect single players. On a side note I see nothing wrong with a well made co-op mode where friends can play the other characters. It might make the game to easy but it would be interesting and fun I think
Can you please not..
What is with these companies attaching multiplayer to everything? They better not touch this game.
Co-op could work same for skyrim games but multiplayer is not needed. It would be an OK addition but if it draws away from the singleplayer experience it shouldn't be there. Sometimes it does work though, sadly when it comes to adding multiplayer to mainly single player games most fans start acting like deranged gun nuts. They definatly better not add in a freaking pvp multiplayer or anything. It would be cool to have my long time friend play as Riku in my game while in his game I look like Riku and vice versa something like that could work I think.
I probably shouldnt have put that gun nut thing in for anyone it may have possibly offended sorry .
If you can afford a separate team to handle this. And it takes no resources or time out of the single player game then sure give it ago. But only if it in no way affects the single player game!
u guys are looking at the bad things just imagine the good stuff it would bring like u can make your own character and fight along or against ur friends and thanks for reading it i really have hopes for it
