Why Is The Kingdom Hearts Storyline So Complicated?

Kingdom Hearts has grown from a single Disney and Squaresoft crossover to an entire franchise with sequels, prequels, and interquels. Speaking to a crowd of fans in Los Angeles, Kingdom Hearts series director Tetsuya Nomura explained that wasn’t always the plan for the series, "When I was making the very first Kingdom Hearts title I went in thinking this could possibly be the one and only Kingdom Hearts title. Maybe if we can get to a sequel, I’ll tease something at the end, but I’m OK with it being a single title. Never would I imagine it would grow to become such a large franchise and such a big series."

It's complicated, but understandable if you're really paying attention. I like all the different angles that are shown, which weave together to make a whole story. It's nice to see all the little plot lines coming together throughout the series.

I'm talking about all the people that complain about the storyline not making sense.

maybe because there like like 10 games on multiple systems and they all connect with each other in one way or the other?

They keep expanding the cast, the lore, the powers, the world and you miss one game and are completely lost. It happened to me when I started playing Kingdom Hearts 2 without playing the GBA "spin off" Chain of Memories. I was completely lost in the story-line till a friend of mine told me: bro you need a Gameboy Advance and Chain of Memories to understand. I was like: f*k that sh*t. I'm not buying no PsP, GBA, DS or 3DS in order to understand what the hell is going on in this series.

Actually only console you need is a ps3 :) (And a 3ds if you are going to play Dream Drop Distance)

I like when people do what you just did :)

try to counteract an argument succeeding only in proving it right! lol :)

These are the times i wish i could agree 10x.

This is just SE being SE. If these spin offs were considered just that, spin-offs, we would be fine. BUT NOOOOOO!!!! someone had to go and say "you know what, lets make these non numbered spin offs canon" !! who would do that?

10-ish games and we are now only on official number 3...if only :(

Nomura: "I'm not a bad writer. I made it this convoluted on purpose!"

WeAreLegion1082d ago

I don't know. I think it's ridiculous. It started off so well! Then...I don't really know.

I'm not sure I even care about the story at this point.

The game just needs to not be spread over 6 different gaming machines... miss one and you're f;d!

Also the story is crap. I wiki'd it and don't see how it can get so many fans...oh thats right. Yaoi. Yaoi sells.
