    Nice, the TWEWY stuff is more than just a Neku cameo. Also, Japanese Maleficent has a great voice.

    This filled me with 10 types of awesome. I WILL get a 3DS, if only for this game (and Tales of the Abyss of course).

    Why do I get the feeling that "opening chapter of the final conflict" = "you're not seeing KH3 until the Super WiiU"?

    They're worse than Capcom at this point.

    Nomura's stated that KH3D leads directly into KH3 (in other words, expect the secret ending to be a KH3 trailer). The trio of spin-offs released last year tie in with 3D and most likely set up some stuff for KH3 as well.

    EDIT: We're going to need a new trailer link. This one got yanked by Square-Enix Japan for some reason...

    Heh, it did that originally straight after SE-UK first uploaded it. Looks like they forgot to add their UK friends to the copyright-claim whitelist :P (Working again at time of this post)

    So far the only game confirmed for an English release that makes me want a 3DS. Now, if they go ahead and confirm Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, we're really getting somewhere.

    Oh FFS, the link is dead.

    I forgot this is the company that creates trailers...that aren't meant to be watched. By anyone.

    The link is still fine, I just checked. It's from the official UK Square Enix channel.

    Sorry, what I meant was that the video had been removed by square. It's back up now, and the game looks pretty cool. I don't think it's quite a system seller for me though, so I may never get around to playing it. I never got around to playing bbs, and I own a psp.

    Why does SE keep insisting on using crazy, reflective borders around the actual video. It really does make it difficult to focus on what they are actually trying to show off. I mean this is ridiculous when 50% of screen is only border. Its not like SE produces crap graphics that look horrible at full screen, its one of the few things they always do right. Sorry for that rant, its just so annoying.

    As for the actual game, its looks good gameplay wise and its good to see them using more Disney worlds that they haven't before.

    Because they don't market to the minority, they market to the majority?

    BbS was rubbish.

    If I felt like watching a poorly adapted retelling of the Star Wars prequel trilogy set in the KH universe and featuring protagonists which range from dull to awful, then I think I'd just repeatedly Slam my head in a door-jam until I expired.

    It's a pity that the best aspects of 5/365 Days and BbS couldn't have been combined into one game - because between them they have one decent narrative and one acceptable game design.

    The original Kingdom Hearts was one of the dumbest, most mindless action game I've ever played, and the story was a horrible slight to both the Final Fantasy games and Disney movies it mashed together (except Tarzan because that already sucked). It's not franchise Square's Moo out, but it's probably the worst that ever developed a significant following. The largely accepted notion that they just got worse from there is terrifying.

    I never said it came close in story. In terms of gameplay addictiveness, it came REALLY close to the first one.

    I disagree. The greatest strength of KH1 was that it had complex levels which were great to explore. BbS had level design that was probably slightly better than KHII, but it still wasn't anything to write home about.

    I thought BBS was the best of the series behind the original, but it still pretty much sucked. I've pretty much given up on it as whole. Who knows though, they could turn it around at some point.
