Should Kingdom Hearts Be Rebooted?

Kingdom Hearts has always been one of the weirdest series in gaming. Who would have thought that a game about Disney and Final Fantasy characters could grab such a large and devoted audience? Nine games later the story seems to have gotten out of hand and convoluted. The editors of VGutopia ask the question, Should Kingdom Hearts be Rebooted? (3DS, Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts II, Nintendo DS, PS2, PS3, PSP)

Yes do an HD remake of both games and work on KH3 and actual sequel to the game.
iamtehpwn  +   1012d ago
Yeah, KH3. we should finish the triology before we talk about things like "Reboots" haha.
iChii  +   1011d ago
Exactly. How can people think about HD remakes before they actually make a third one? Sure I'd love KH 1 & 2 for PS3 with Trophies and stuff, but FINISH THE TRILOGY ALREADY.

It should be a MMORPG.
parasit3  +   1011d ago
I agree dude. That would be a rad one, especially when they had made a gay MMO called Toontoon. And there was this cool MMO that people loved called Virtual Magical Kingdom (VMK) by Disney- later to be shutdown and discontinued. Anyway, a Kingdom Hearts MMO would be a cool concept just like how the Final Fantasy XIV MMO is.

Exactly Bring on the HD remakes of ! & 2 then give us a full console KH3 the fans have waited long enough.....LEAVE THE HANDHELDS ALONE!.....for now at least
jacksonmichael  +   1012d ago
Remastered? Yes. Rebooted? No.
Snookies12  +   1012d ago
Agreed, no way in hell should the story be rebooted. It's intriguing and captivating, and I definitely need to know how the Xehanort saga ends at least. Besides, it's going to be something else entirely after 3 ends as stated by Nomura. In terms of storyline at least haha.
-Mika-  +   1012d ago
Disagree. The kh story is just everywhere. It really confusing and it just needs a fresh start.
Snookies12  +   1012d ago
It's confusing, yes... But to those who DO understand it, and have taken time out to really delve in and research what's going on. It does in fact make sense, and things are really tightly woven. You just have to do some leg work to really figure out what's going on, as it's not really spelled out in the games (yet).

@Mika

I'm sorry but I disagree completely with every opinion you have ever had on this site. It seems like you just like going against every popular opinion on here.

Kingdom Hearts story is one of the best if you actually play the freaking games. I want them to actually finish the saga before they try anything.

Really nobody should care about the opinion of the person who thinks that XIII and XIII-2 are the best games made by Square this gen. Cut the crap dude. You're a troll and know it.

Kingdom Hearts should not be rebooted. This saga is almost over. It would be a total misstep by Nomura and Square the reboot their second most profitable game franchise.
DA_SHREDDER  +   1011d ago
whoooaaahh whoaaaah, hold on here, you guys actually get into the story? Hahahahaha! Yeah the game was good, until they released the game on handhelds( which to me just didn't feel like a real KH game), even despite having a E for everyone story, the combat, and some of the characters fit well. I hope KH3 comes out and at least lives up to the first two.

Yea we do shredder,

because unlike you, there are people who can handle not being spoon fed everything in life.

Yes the story is confusing, but that made it attractive, not annoying.

We sought after the story online in parts that did not make sense, and we found what we were looking for.

Was it satisfying and made us enjoy the series even further than before? Yes.
Shivan  +   1012d ago
this has to be the stupidest article
jmobley  +   1012d ago
why?
Shivan  +   1012d ago
because rebooting any rpg series if the story is already well developed is silly

this isnt some action game
VanillaBear  +   1012d ago
They should of stuck to one platform for the spin offs

I think they should of waited for the PSP to come out when they did Chain of Memories and then continued them onto the PSV

Although my biggest problem with the franchise is that the spin offs are scattered around platforms....from DS to mobile to the PSP and then the 3DS it's silly. I mean Dream Drop Distances ending continues onto KH3, a PS3 game, meaning you HAVE to play it to understand KH3 story.

When Chain of Memories came out people were confused with KH2 story, I had to watch the cutscenes on line and read about it which then made me enjoy KH2 much more and that was just one spin off.....since KH2 we've had a ton of spin offs and it's going to be hard to understand KH3 story when it does come out. I hope they do HD versions of all the spin off games after KH2 for a special HD collection just before KH3 comes out

I agree. The fanboys going to disagree but it started on the PS platform. It should finish on it. So all the side titles and main titles should be on the PS platform.
jmobley  +   1012d ago
I also think it should just stick to the PS platform. i'd like a vita centric spin off series with a whole new character and maybe just a few references to the older games.
Young_ART  +   1012d ago
I don't feel that it should be rebooted, but I think they need to get with the times, and create a massive multiplayer online game of Kingdom Hearts.
KonaBro  +   1012d ago
No.
The story just got back on track with BBS and Re:Coded (Secret Movie) and it's been confirmed Dream Drop Distance's secret movie is basically the setup for KH3. Also, to anyone saying that there are a lot of spin-offs, technically there have only been 2 spin-offs in the entire series. The rest are all separate games that tie into the overall story. Please get your information correct before you complain. Thank you.
trenso1  +   1011d ago
I feel that coded was the only real spin off since the secret ending was the only important thing in there.
Tres21  +   1003d ago
i think more so what they're sayin weather u wanna look at it as a spin-off or a seperate game it would be nice if u had the option 2 play them instead of em all being spread out over different plats cuz lik u said it still ties into tha overall story & it'd be nice 2 be able 2 get that whole story wit out havin 2 get a new system just 4 that game
KrimsonKody  +   1012d ago
They need to do an ehanced HD remake of KH1 & 2, & add chopped up scenes, gameplay & events from all the portable spin-offs (excluding DDD), to connect the important events together that are going to lead up to the events of KH3.

& alot of fans are gonna hate me for saying this;
But respectively, KH3 should be on PS3 & WiiU ONLY!
I say this because it start'd on Sony (PS2 & PSP), & Nintendo supported the spin-offs

So, for PS fans, get the HD remake, catch up, & prepare for KH3.
& for Nintendo, just get a WiiU to play KH3.

I think that is a perfect amount of production, development-wise.
The franchise would'nt be diluted by being on every system.
Fans of the franchise will all be satisfied.
& it would only make sense (I mean, would they expect Nintendo fans to go to PS3 for KH3?, Unfair).

I think for SquareEnix right now is more concerned with not having a 'ME3'-type of ending reaction than when & where KH3 will drop.
Zynga  +   1012d ago
Why PS3 and WiiU only? That's not fair at all because I want a HD remake for all platforms so that everyone can enjoy this great franchise. Just like how kojima released the metal gear HD on multiplatfrom. And beside square enix are greedy so most likely it will happen anyway.

Just make KH3 a ps3 exclusive already.
BitbyDeath  +   1012d ago
I'd rather if they just made 3 and made it so the storyline of 1 and 2 were included for those that either haven't played them or in my case do not remember.
TheUnbiasedLion  +   1012d ago
For people who have the money to play all the games would probably argee that the series dosen't need re-booting.

Its a well done story that makes perfect sense and has a lot of twists, it is probably one of the best stories in a series and i for one can't way to play the last two games in the xeonort saga.
Hicken  +   1012d ago
Reboot? No.

Does it need to be "solidified" so all parts can be played? Hell yes.

But that should come AFTER KH3 is done. Once 3 is out, remaster the ones on PS2, and make a collection with all the non-console games.

And unless they're gonna go full multiplat, they should just stick to Sony and stop jumping around. Sony's where the series got its start, and I daresay that's where most of the franchise's fans are.
Dmd  +   1012d ago
Since I never played it, I really would like to see a reboot/remake.

No make ps3 version of 1&2 and maybe CoM with tropy support. That way people who havnt played can get some of the info to at least get in the loop of whats going on. i would like bbs on ps3 too but it's not that old anyways so I doubt that would happen.
Omega Zues  +   1011d ago
How about they try keeping the series on a single console...

Just a thought.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1011d ago
Reboot no. HD remakes/remaster yes KH1:FM,KH2:FM, and KH Re:COM as collection 1. KH:358/2 days,KH:Re coded, and KH:BBS FM as collection 2. Remaster the Ds games and make them look like they were ment for consoles. Make it for 360 and PS3 full achivements and trophies. That would be a great move on squares part make money and get every1 prepared for KH3. In all honesty we don't know when versusXIII comes out KH3 is not in development it will be years if iits takeing versusXIII this long to get out. Square has plenty of time.
Tres21  +   1003d ago
personally i lik tha way u think....i want collection 2
