Amazon has discounted the Xbox One version of Kingdom Hearts III.
I thought it said discontinued on Xbox One. And I wouldn't have been surprised.
I'm kinda surprised they haven't released any of the remasters or Prologue game on Xbox One, it mind boggling considering the game is STILL going to be on the platform
Agreed, really would like to hear their reasoning for not bringing the remasters to the Xbox One, yet release KH3. Hopefully you don't need to play the old games to understand the story in the newest game.
If you've never played Kingdom Hearts, I highly recommend playing them or watching a very detailed YouTube synopsis. The most important game in my opinion are Dream Drop, 1, 2, Birth by Sleep, and 2.8. A lot of it is pretty convoluted, but yeah, if you're new, you'll most certainly be lost without a primer.
@riverstar86 unfortunately KH is one of the most confusing stories in games (closest comparison I can think of is MGS) and unless you have played ALL the previous games the story in KH3 will make no sense.
You most certainly do need to play the previous games to play 3. Not only the main titles but also the spin offs that were on handhelds. It's quite a complex story and it's important to follow it through so you know what's going on. You could always read about it or watch the cutscenes on YouTube though.
Like Shenmue 3 on PS4 when part 1 and 2 were never on any PS platform before? Or that logic only pertains to other platforms?
You assume PS4 won't be getting the original Shenmue games. The probability of Xbox getting the original Kingdom Hearts games, at this point, is still possible. Unlikely, but possible.
Agree. I also don't even see the point in the game being released on X1 at all without the first 2. Who the hell jumps into a series from the 3rd part ?.
I wish they would, Id love to play the previous games since I cant afford to buy another system just for a few games.
Discount a game that doesn't even have a release date...okay
Phil spencer was in tokyo just a few days ago, microsoft is trying to get support from jap devs.
Im confused. When you select either version for preorder they both are still the same price at checkout. its a con. Its not $49 minus 20% or am i missing something
Its awkward how this game release on Xbox 1 after two generations and yet Xbox didn't ever got any previous KH series and only way to play it today by obtaining Ps4, so I think this is worst investment, even for collectors all games holding Playstation (some optional Nintendo) brand then the last saga is in green case! Well that sound ao wrong.
Looks like anime. Please keep it away from my xbox.
SE should have gone switch instead of xbox. Switch version would have destroyed xbox version in sales.
Look at everyone getting triggered at how a Kingdom Hearts game will arrive on an Xbox console rather than the mere discount itself
im still smh that its actually coming out for xbox. not couse i dont like it xbox but cause the collection wasnt even on it. very strange marketing.
yea i would consider this if i thought not only the game was ever actually going to come out or that when it does come out its actually still going to be released on the xbox platform ... something tells me this thing is just gonna keep getting pushed back until its inevitably canceled for at least the xbox ...
Yeah ok ill pay for a game that's probably 2 years away still. NOT.
Huge kingdom heart fan I bought a ps2 just to play this game. Can't wait for this game on WHO CARE WHAT SYSTEM, PLAY GAMES NOT SALES.
Will it ever come out`?
Xbox Playstation who cares what damn box the games is on just have fun with the game. The discount price is nice but I won't preorder this until there is a street date set.
