Square Enix showcased new footage of Kingdom Hearts III during the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix launch event in San Diego this evening.
Wish we had some reference as to how 'absolutely massive' Land of Departure is... Either way, I'm so excited for this game! I would be really mad this footage isn't being shown, but I can't be angry when I'm about to get 2.5 tomorrow. That'll tide me over until some actual new footage surfaces down the line.
"Land of Departure" Guessing that's from the spin offs I'm going to play the remix for whatever one it's from but good god this shouldn't be happening. I hate how this series has formed into one where you need to play the spin offs to understand a MAIN game. I love this series but I wish it was handled better, dosen't help when the game you apparently need to understand the next game, DDD is not on the 2.5 Remix disc
They shouldn't be considered spin-offs. They're integral to the story. (Especially Birth by Sleep) The story just isn't complete, and wouldn't make sense without them. I do agree it's unfortunate that they were spread across all kinds of platforms. It was a really lame move on Square Enix's part to do that. If you want to know what the Land of Depature is without spoiling anything. It's where Terra, Aqua, and Ventus were trained to use their keyblades. It also holds a great deal of significance at the end of Birth by Sleep which carries over into the other games as well.
I get so pissed of when people call them spinoffs. the games deal with the main storyline. the only game that is a spinoff is kingdom hearts Chi and coded can be considered one too. if you haven't played 3d or birth by sleep at LEAST you will be completely lost when the 3rd comes out. birth by sleep is the skyward sword of kingdom hearts its where it all starts and it is as important as the numbered games and 3d takes place DIRECTLY after kh2 (the journey sora goes on because of the letter he get sat the end of kh2) and it sets up the story for kh3.simply because it isn't numbered doesn't make it a spinoff (EX. ff:lightning returns, not numbered like the other two but it is a main game.) an example of a spinoff would be ff: dirge of Cerberus as it has absolutely nothing to do with the main story of ff7.
Yeah they are vital to understand the overall story but this is my point they are spin offs to Square Enix. I mean they are given names like Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance and then on top of that they are separated across different platforms. When a game is given a subtitle despite the fact other games in the series use numbers they are classed as spin offs. Unless it's something like Killzone Shadow Fall which is because they've completed a trilogy story and are starting a new a different way. It's annoying because since they are vital to understand the overall story they treat them like they are spin off despite the actual plots being needed to understand future KH games
Expect to see more this weekend.
I live in San Diego nothing went down here... I think the writer meant BURBANK
