Kingdom Hearts 3 Not Possible Without Spin-Off Games

Without the many Kingdom Hearts games we've seen as of late, there'd be no Kingdom Hearts 3. (Kingdom Hearts 3, PS4, Xbox One)

Kinda obvious

"because of some reasons"

I bet those reasons were somehow related to SE's habit during the current generation to do quite the opposite of what people were actually asking for.

Cash money.

Translation: Without the repeated success of tangent iterations, a new core release wouldn't be possible.

What a shocking development! My god, I bet we wouldn't have Final Fantasy XV without the other 26 games, too!

Bullcrap...if they wanted to do spin off's fine but they should of been non cannon to the main games.

Now people are going to have to play Birth By Sleep and especialy Dream Drop Distance (on differnt platforms) to understand KH3 story

Every KH fan should try BBS, though. One of the best games of the franchise.

the only game you dnt need to play is recoded that game was of no signifigance

to be honest BBS needed to be there other wise we would all be like who the hell is terra and why was combined with Xehanort, or who is the guy sleeping and why does he look exactly like roxas, and why is Aqua even important things like that. I feel that the story was important but the platform of choice should have been the ps3 not the psp, and honestly i bought a 3ds just for DDD in fact i owned the collectors edition to that game before i even owned a 3ds

That's the reason for the HD collections. I expect at Tokyo game show we get a HD collection of 2, birth by sleep and videos of dream drop. It would then reduce the amount of consoles to understand the series to 2.

U can barely even call Birth by sleep and KH3D spin offs cause they hold a huge amount of story relevance. BBS pretty much shaped the KH universe. KH3D is the set up to KH3 and u will be mind f*cked if u didnt play it or at least watched the cutscenes.

RE:coded is what I would call a spin off barely any story relevance if any.

BS statement especially since they released all the spin offs in different consoles/handhelds
I think is great their releasing them again on ps3 but the series should have never split the other games consoles

Id believe that if they were closing a studio or two.
They been messing up since that cgi final fantasy movie! (the bad one!)
This means they do not make enough money from sales of a single game.
The profit margin must be razor thin or bonuses must be back breaking heavy.

So......what I understand for the most part is that they took the money from people from Nintendo who bought the Dream Drop Distance from their 3DS and ripped most of them for not bringing KH3 to the Wii U which the game is not that graphicaly demanding. (Debatable)
