Kingdom Hearts creator Tetsuya Nomura spoke about the original game's story and how he received advice from Hironobu Sakaguchi
We’ve already known this for years. How is this news?
Well KH 1 was on right path and could evolve to something phenamonal but they ruined it with stupidity of multi hearts and bodies BBS was on the right path but they didn't invest on it well.
Yeah, it all went downhill after the first game. Now the story is worse off than ffviii.
FF8's storyline is crazy lol. Multiple simultaneous time paradoxes. One of my favorite FF games.
People always seem to say the story of KH as a whole is complicated. I personally never found it complicated, just very convoluted....and a lot of that is because they keep throwing in new things to make up new stories which aren't really all that necessary to the main cannon which was established in the first game. It's more like having a singe anime franchise where different series take place in different universes or time lines, yet they want them all to actually be connected at a core level.
Well, entice him to rejoin. Or buy his development studio, Mistwalker. Plz.
Most FF & KH stories are convoluted.
Overly complicated since Chain of memories
I mean, the article words it as if it were a mistake, but it's part of what made Kingdom Hearts the unique franchise that it is.
difference between complicated and the load of tripe that is the story lol
I wouldn't call it tripe. It has a good story overall, it's just convoluted and isn't as deep as some people make it out to be. The original was actually kind of light hearted with a bit of maturity thrown in on a deeper level. But everything after the first game tried to make it a much darker and deeper lore than the first game established, and most of the characters and lore became kind of dumb. The philosophy they try to impart is done very poorly, and I think part of that is because they try to keep it within a lot of disney universes which don't really lend themselves to such deep introspection so all these deep revelations tend to be done in a less than serious way in a matter that tends to be an easy tie up to just complete the story.
Main reason why I outgrew this series. The story is waaaaaaay too random and the acting is super bland. I loved KH2 but that's where the charm of being able to stomach gameplay over story ended for me. At least for this series.
Yeah I gave up on trying to fully understand everything that's been going on since after KH1. I just play because its fun.
