Kingdom Hearts 3 marks the end of a 'trilogy,' but not the series

Kingdom Hearts 3 represents the end of a trilogy. Well, it's technically not a trilogy because as series creator Testuya Nomura admits, "there have been so many spinoffs." (Kingdom Hearts 3, PS4, Xbox One)

I hate how though to understand this trilogy you need to buy the other hand-held games. I mean I know the song at the beginging on the games usualy goes with a re capping of the story but after how much has went on between KH2 and KH3....we are in for a long intro.

Well if you have a PS3 you can buy Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix, it comes with the games that go over what happened between KH2 and KH3.

1.5 Remix covers in between KH1 and KH2

KH 2.5 remix should cover what happens between KH2 and KH3 with BBS and probably cutscenes from DDD.

Speaking of the song .. what is the next opening song on KH3 ?

Can't wait for the next Utada song ~

( Who knows it might be an improved version of Simple & Clean )

Well after how long we've waited and it's the last one in the trilogy she better do it with a new song.

It's like tradition now
Sevir  +   361d ago
Well Right, "Simple and Clean" covered KH1, "Sanctuary" covered KH2, she should Do a New Single for KH3 it only makes more sense and as Root said, its tradition. Can't wait for it. 2015 can't come soon enough. There's no way this game is coming before FF15.

Of course not! Why end the series when you can release dozens of games varying in quality between main incarnations? They're taking a page from their other main property, Final Fantasy.

...for better or worse.

Trilogy? It has like 35753 games....
gamer42  +   361d ago
2 main games, 1 prequel, 4 fillers.
(not including final mixes, or KH1.5)

That still seems like alot

It's still 5 games too many though. xD
Sevir  +   361d ago
Well to be Honest, the Final Mix versions flesh the story out more than the originals... So you kinda have to count the final mix editions.. Still KH is one hugely convoluted franchise. I'm ready to get to the end of the Sora/Xehanort Saga.

There maybe a lot but only birth by sleep and dream drop distance are actually important to the story. Which I don't particularly agree that they should have been important to the main console games because I'm guessing a lot of people will be confused when 3 starts are the entire lore they knew is basically rewritten. Still can't wait for 3 though, I remember talking all about it with friends in the beginning of high school. Now I'm nearly done with my master's :/
Sevir  +   361d ago
Chain of Memories, 365/2, Birth By Sleep and Dream Drop Distance are all very important to the franchise.. Its that coded that really was unnecessary

How nice it would be that studios knew when to quit.
josephayal  +   361d ago
I've waited 7+ years for KH3, TBH I don't care about Kingdom Hearts
M-M  +   361d ago
Then why were you waiting for KH3 if you don't care about Kingdom Hearts in general? Oh josephayal.

Then they should make Kingdom Hearts 3's worlds for disney movies only then put star wars/marvel on the next trilogy.
Sevir  +   361d ago
I hope not, No marvel, Lone ranger, or Star wars IPs that would totally just kill the franchise for me If hate it if they did a John Carter thing too.
KHGuy710  +   360d ago
Then you should stop playing because you are not a true Disney FF or Kingdom Hearts fan.
manman6  +   361d ago
After 3 I probably stop playing any other kingdom hearts game.
Blacklash93  +   361d ago
I shudder how convoluted the story is going to get at that point. Sora has like... 4 clones/look-a-likes now? Roxas, Xion, Vanitas, Ventus. His heart is like the KH bycicle. And the villain has like 13 clones now using time travel or something. Not to mention the insane amounts of retconning that happen in this series.

This may sound ridiculous, and it is, but it's actually accurate.
