Thank the f******* lord

If they got someone else it would be so out of place.

The best theme songs for Japanese made games like this are Japanese artists which can also do the song in English.

As long as she does both versions (EN and JP) like she has in the past. I have the theme songs in both English and Japanese for KH 1&2, love them. Hopefully SE doesn't try to use the flavor of the month for the English version (Leona Lewis for XIII, and now Florence & The Machines for XV [though not the main theme]).

I remember the rumour last year where it was said skrillex would be the main theme. Everyone including me lost their sh*t loool. Dont know whether it was fake or not

Yeah I'm not religious and I prayed on this. My conclusion:

Didn't we already know this

Omnislashver362618d ago (Edited 2618d ago )

No, because of Utada Hikaru's aversion to allowing her songs on downloadable media, there was no way to be sure. There was even a rumor that Skrillex was considered to be the next song writer. Thankfully Utada Hikaru has finally allowed KH games to have her songs with them in downloadable format though, starting with KH 2.8.

She's still doing well in music as well. I just watched her recent video for the anime Evangelion and she's still got it.

PhoenixUp2618d ago (Edited 2618d ago )

She said she'd be involved with KH3 since 2013


Omnislashver362618d ago

Good news. There was still no way to be sure if Nomura would let it slide though if they were only allowed physical disc releases. I mean, the dust has just settled on letting her songs be in future digital releases. They may had cut her song out of the download releases if she wouldn't allow it which would be awkward for some users.

PhoenixUp2618d ago

I just hope KH1.5 + 2.5 get offered digitally on PSN for PS4

wonderfulmonkeyman2618d ago

Sweet! I hope it retains all the magic of the themes from the first two games. KH3 is one of my most anticipated upcoming RPG's.

ninsigma2618d ago

Thank God! This is amazing new in comparison to that skrillex rumour. Actually it's just amazing news in general but even better considering how much worse it was sounding!

Final Fantasy XVI Has Finally Given Donald Duck A Worthy Opponent

For a long time, it's been widely accepted amongst Final Fantasy/Kingdom Hearts fans that Donald Duck is the most powerful mage ever to exist, mainly due to his use of the stupidly powerful Zettaflare spell towards the end of Kingdom Hearts 3. This spell is one step up from Teraflare, a spell which was used in Final Fantasy XIV that was so powerful that it completely wiped out the base game, giving the developers a canonical reason to let them bin everything and start again from scratch.

Now you're armed with this information, you can see how it was pretty surprising for Donald Duck of all characters to bust out Zettaflare and establish himself as the most powerful character in Final Fantasy/Kingdom Hearts lore. However, now that Final Fantasy XVI has arrived and delivered a whole new cast of characters, a new challenger has arrived to provide Donald with some much needed competition.

Final Fantasy's Strongest Canonical Magic User Is... Donald Duck?

Final Fantasy features many strong characters, but an unlikely character from Kingdom Hearts is able to cast ​the most powerful spell ever seen

gold_drake289d ago

that was pretty amazing, not gonna lie, i might have shed a tear or too, just cause of pure awesomeness.

he was already my favourite disney character and one of my favs from KH and then to see that amazing spell too. aah so good xD


Final Fantasy's strongest magic user is Donald Duck, who never appears in a final fantasy game.


This Kingdom Hearts Boss' Unpredictability Gave Me Sekiro Vibes

Kingdom Hearts is filled with otherworldly boss battles, but only one stands out like a phoenix dancing with ethereal grace across the night sky. Before we embark upon a discussion concerning Kingdom Hearts' exceptional boss battles, it may be prudent to first reflect on the evolution of the criteria for appraising video game bosses. This criterion has undergone a major metamorphosis over the past decade; one that owes much to the profound influence of From Software and its iconic Souls series.

"Yozora is much more than a grueling secret encounter; he is a reflection of what Kingdom Hearts' bosses should be"

No thank you. If every boss in Kingdom Hearts was like Yozora, the series would be unplayable. That's not to say that they shouldn't include such challenges, but making them fundamental to the game would be too much. And don't say that this is what the From Software games are, because Yozora is absolutely harder than most of the bosses in those games. He is waaay faster, has a ludicrous number of abilities (and does them in random order AND can chain most of them together), and punishes you severely if you make a mistake. On top of that, you have to survive this onslaught for a really long time because of how much health he has. It's borderline too much - for me at least. Still, it's a stunning battle.

OMNlPOTENT300d ago

I agree, while I do really enjoy the Yozora fight, I think it's far too difficult to be anything more than an optional boss. However, I do believe that there should be more bosses that are in the same weight and size class as Sora, as the majority of those in KH3 were the best fights. The giant heartless bosses just aren't as enjoyable.
