What if Sora and Riku go back in time somehow to reveal or prevent something. It might also explain what Naminé ment by prevent everyone's suffer. It could also explain why Sora and Riku have the apperance they had in Kingdom Hearts. Also do you think Xehanort whereabouts and status will be revealed in the game?.

Revision as of 13:14, February 18, 2011

Is that a picture of Twilight Thorn in Traverse Town? I think this game will be awesome! Who will voice the younger Sora, though?

we have no clue who will yes that is a nobody.--ZACH 03:23, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

In recent games, like Re: Chain of Memories and 358/2 Days, Osment has continued to voice younger Sora, despite his older voice. Whether this will carry over or not has yet to be seen. So, at the moment, I think that Osment will continue to voice Sora, but it's still too early to tell. Tamroc7 03:28, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

Just a question, If it's for the 3ds (which I've never heard of) would it work on a normal DS as well? --173.64.12.25 22:11, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

Template:AxelLivesOn

i'm hoping that it will be playable on the normal ds, it just wont have the 3d effects to it. or maybe they'll make two versions of the game, but considering this game is being made for the 3ds it probably won't.--Soul reaper magnum 09:14, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Template:One-Winged Angel

i hope that's how it is, and i think that the 3d effects being optional is a great idea. especially for people like me that don't like 3d effects in games.--Soul reaper magnum 03:28, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

The 3DS is entirely different hardware. It's not just the 3D effects that separate it from the DS. The game won't be playable on the (soon to be outdated) DS. 98.245.249.137 05:53, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

Unlock

Can someone unlock the page for a minute or two? I need to make a small edit.--NinjaSheik 18:26, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah. The page should be locked only to IP's (it's times like this I wish you could select a group of regular users to be allowed editing rights when something's sysop-only). There are a few tweaks and additions to the article I'd like to make, as well. - EternalNothingnessXIII 18:44, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

I know its protect so people don't speculate and stuff, but I won't take long. It's just a very tiny edit.--NinjaSheik 18:57, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

All I wanted to do was add a list of characters confirmed to appear, and a descripition of the trailer based on how IGN described it. - EternalNothingnessXIII 19:00, June 16, 2010 (UTC)
  1. If a page is locked due to constant edit warring, you're supposed to present your edit on the talk page so that the admin can add it, not ask for it to be unlocked and relocked several times. Not yelling, or anything, but that's the accepted way to do it. Could you please present your edits?
  2. There aren't any confirmed characters yet, are there? We just have a short trailer, that shows Sora and Riku. I think they could always remove that at any time, considering they had the Awakening and Deep Jungle in the CoM promotional materials, Great Crest in the KH2 trailers, Pinocchio's world and servant Nobodies in Days, etc... It's way to early in the development process to be claiming we have any confirmed info.Glorious CHAOS! 21:38, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

Kingdom Hearts 3DS is not RE:Coded

In case you guys may be confused, Kingdom Hearts on the 3DS is not a 3d version of RE:Coded. It is an entirely different game (which is Awesome!) If you want some proof you can follow this link....

[2]

Original Title

Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto has confirmed that KH3D is an original title, not another rehash. http://www.khinsider.com/latest/kingdom-hearts-3d-at-e3-2010.html

I don't want to take anything from the demo trailer too seriously, but Sora having a dream about Twilight Thorn is pretty out there. After reading the trailer summary, the only missing piece is a description of Sora after he wakes up. Is it still KH1 Sora or is it KH2 Sora? If it's KH1 Sora then I don't know what to think, but if it's KH2 Sora then 3D is probably the sequel to Coded/ Re:coded. It will be the game about the "pieces laying where they fell" and Sora "picking up the pieces" and the "boy who is connected to everyone/thing" and "returning to the Darkness to free those who are crippled" and all of that.--XYZ. 16:07, June 17, 2010 (UTC)

Well here's my opinion, and its only speculation and what I WANT to have happen rather than what the game really may be, but my guess is that this game is like what's going on inside Sora's head while he was spending a year in hibernation after CoM. I don't think that the series is quite ready for the point where Sora is "picking up the pieces where they fell", because he's still in his KH1 clothing and appearance, and if what happens after coded is supposed to come after KHII he would have the older appearance and new clothes right? But it seems like it would make sense that this may be a dream world for Sora because if you think about it, the appearance of the Twilight Thorn might coincide with Roxas fighting the Twilight Thorn in KHII and the fact that its going on with Roxas would explain why its going on in Sora's head. Once again, this is just a guess of mine and no one really has to take it seriously, but I don't want another huge sequel that involves a bunch of Soras falling from the sky and him looking like he did in KH1. I suppose we'll find out soon enough though. Axel's Sentiment 19:10, June 17, 2010 (UTC)Axel's Sentiment

If it's because of the fight with Roxas and the Twilight Thorn, then the Twilight Thorn would have to be the final boss, and I don't think they would show us him this early.Glorious CHAOS! 20:58, June 17, 2010 (UTC)

No I'm not entirely sure of that, although you make a good point, but I'm just making the point that it might show the link between Sora and Roxas. And as for Riku, his story might be the story of what he does while Sora is asleep, or something like that. Axel's Sentiment 21:37, June 17, 2010 (UTC)Axel's Sentiment

We've already seen what Riku did while Sora was asleep. And if the "appearance of the Twilight Thorn coincides with Roxas fighting the Twilight Thorn", then it would have to be Sora's final boss, because that was Roxas's second to last day, as I recall.Glorious CHAOS! 00:12, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, if we go by the logic of "if Sora's dream relates to Roxa's actions," then the final boss of the game would have to be Axel, because he is the last enemy faced in Roxas's story. Tamroc7 00:27, June 18, 2010 (UTC)


Here's more information:

http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2010/06/18/nomura_on_kh_3ds/

Here's the gist of it:

  • Kingdom Hearts 3D's development started with Square Enix hearing the general details of the 3DS system from Nintendo. They wanted to make a quick demo. Nomura already had a general framework for some gameplay systems and a story that he felt would match the 3DS's visual expression. Thus began the Kingdom Hearts 3D project.
  • While the name "Kingdom Hearts 3D" isn't a final name, it does have something to do with the final name. The "3D" in this placeholder title does not stand for "3 Dimension," said Nomura, but is an abbreviation for the game's subtitle.
  • Famitsu noted that while the game's E3 demo shows Sora and Riku as they appear in the first Kingdom Hearts game, they're presented in some situations that would be impossible for the first game. Replied Nomura to this, "This is because it's not a remake, but a completely original game. This time, Sora and Riku are the two main characters. We're currently in the process of selecting new worlds."
  • Nomura said that the story would be something unexpected, something that to a certain extent breaks the developments that have taken place according to fan expectation. However, he did say that Re: Coded, the upcoming DS remake of Coded, would have some hints.

Not very revealing, but I'm pretty sure this is a sequel to Coded. A game about Sora's memories returning while he sleeps in the Memory Pod would be an uh interesting twist, I guess, but that could also be disastrous. Overall, it would be entirely pointless. Not to mention Nomura stated he's picking new worlds. That pretty much rules out a dream game. --XYZ. 02:40, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Soooooo it's time travel. Apparently Sora is "reconnecting" everything by going back and keeping the bad things from happening.
It does have precedent in the series (Timeless River), and it would fit exactly with "breaks the developments that have taken place", as well as following directly from coded's ending, and explains why there would be new worlds that should be impossible for Sora to have gone to.
I betcha. I betcha.Glorious CHAOS! 03:43, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

If you recall, before Sora and co. enter the door to Timeless River, Merlin warns them not to succumb to dark influences. I'm pretty sure that meddling with events that already occurred to alter the timeline and course of the KH universe's history is what he meant by dark. And now that you got me started on a total rant, Nomura has suggested that once a Heartless has been destroyed and the Heart returns to Kingdom Hearts, and the matching Nobody fades away, the Heart and Body can reunite in Kingdom Hearts and the complete being can be reborn. Although that has yet to happen, it totally ruins the idea of permanence within the series. And then to add Sora going back in time to alter history would just flat out ruin the series.--XYZ. 03:58, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

You are completely right. A time-traveling based game would likely be the final nail in the coffin, or at least another huge step downwards.
I still think that's what he's hinting at.Glorious CHAOS! 05:22, June 18, 2010 (UTC)


"'KH3D' will be a title that enters a new step to follow the three games whose production was announced simultaneously, '358/2 Days, Birth by Sleep, and Coded." -Tetsuya Nomura

I rest my case.--XYZ. 01:25, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

... I betcha KrytenKoro is right. I betcha. --User:DoorToNothing/Sig 05:28, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Logo Trivia

Aside from the "3D Demo" subtitle, the logo's letters are practically identical to Chain of Memories'.--XYZ. 02:43, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

I'm guessing by now everyone saw this. Don't we need to put more information about it? And can someone unlock the page, already?--NinjaSheik 19:31, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Template:AxelLivesOn

From what Nomura has told us, KH3D will be N3DS exclusive.--ΧƳƵach. 17:06, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Nintendo just wants to sell more versions of the Ds, and they apparently want KH3D to be a special game. --Axel with chakrams ~ chain of memoriesAxel Lives On 42px

17:10, June 19, 2010 (UTC)



The N3DS will most likely serve as the NDS' successor. The NDS is already the 2nd best selling console in the history of ever, right after PS2, so now try to imagine how well it will sell with 3D effect graphics and all of the features of the different models put together, but mostly with the 3D effect graphics. KH3DS is not a special game, have you read any of Nomura's interviews about it? Well I guess there is only one. What happened was he heard about the magic of the N3DS and threw some material together for a Demo. I doubt Nintendo is complaining about getting one of the better selling franchises onto their system, but Nomura actually went to them about it this time.--ΧƳƵach. 17:16, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Template:One-Winged Angel

All of the articles about the N3DS state it as backward compatible with both NDS game and NDSi Ware. This would insinuate the N3DS games beings N3DS exclusive.--ΧƳƵach. 17:22, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

True. I mean, 3D with no special glasses!?!? That's pretty cool. It says that the game will link up the recent KH games:

  1. Coded
  2. 358/2 Days
  3. Birth by Sleep

And that they will also have new worlds in the game, but both Destiny Islands & Traverse Town have been seen. --Axel with chakrams ~ chain of memoriesAxel Lives On 42px

The 3DS is a successor to the NDS line just because it have the word DS in it doesnt mean it is a redesign like the DS lite or DSi

it's not fair people without the ds can't play it Khruler 01:00, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Correction, people without the Nintendo 3DS cannot play this and that is everyone because neither the console or game are available.--XYZ. 01:05, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Does NDS and N3DS have a difference? And what the heck is a N3DS? Is it a new Nintendo Console? Or will people make an emulator of N3DS? WingBlade

It's the next line of Nintendo DS, but features full 3D effect graphics without the use of special glasses.--XYZ. 04:05, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

So does this means that KH3D is one of this console's first games? WingBlade

According to an interview with Nomura, KH3D is the next large installment of the series and the game that brings together all of the loose ends of BbS, Days and Coded. If you have seen the endings of all three games you'll know what KH3D is about.--ΧƳƵach. 22:32, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

It is a Demo video. It also shows a million Sora's raining down from the sky. Don't take it too literally.--ΧƳƵach. 23:07, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

- This is the next stage of the franchise after Coded/358/BbS.

- Sora and Riku will be the playable characters in the game, and they will be visiting new worlds.

- There will be various hints relating to this game hidden in Re:Coded.

- There should be more information and announcements at next year's E3.

3D = Free Darkness?

Template:Rucario

Uh what? I believe it will be something along the lines of Three Doors or Third Door. The door to Kingdom Hearts is known as the Door to Darkness and the Door to Light is what Sora and Riku passed through in order to return to Destiny Islands and the Realm of Light. We have yet to see a Door that leads to the Realm of In Between or to the Realm of Nothingness.--ΧƳƵach. 05:57, July 3, 2010 (UTC)

Template:Rucario

Just because three sounds like free doesn't mean the title will have the word free in it... Also the title doesn't have to be three and something that starts on "D". It could be three "D"'s ... - JTD95 17:18, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Blank Points

This is the game featured in Blank Points, the young Sora and Riku are prototypes i just figured it out the 3 games, Re:coded= remake, can't be Blank Points, KH3= no info and Nomura said KH3 IS the last game in the trio and not Blank Points so this game is it.--My Keyblade + Your face = pwnage 15:47, July 8, 2010 (UTC)Chihuahuaman

Wait, when did Nomura state that KHIII was not Blank Points?

Title

User:One-Winged Angel|10:42 July 20, 2010|3D = 3 Doors ? Door to Light, Door to Darkness, and another door (Door to Nothingness?). What do you guys think?

Pure speculation. unless we get a real title with confirmation from Tetsuya Nomura, the title is not going to be changed.--My Keyblade + Your face = pwnage 18:59, July 20, 2010 (UTC)Chihuahuaman

I think if there were 3 Doors it would be Door to Light, Door to Darkness, and Door to Oblivion (meaning door to ven) but that's just my thoughts.[8:20 October 7, 2010] Infernoxgt

3 Doors, 3 Destinies, 3 Destinations or as the 3 could be third 3rd Door, 3rd Destiny, 3rd Destination, 3rd Darkness( a new enemy in darkness as the nobodies were inbetween or nothingness thus a new enemy in darkness being the third.) Hope this helped your speculation. - Xander19

hold it, hold it! I just thought of something similar: It COULD be a third enemy that sora and Co face. the heartless represent darkness, the nobodies represent "in-between" or nothingness. what IF the third enemy represents LIGHT?? I know it doesn't sound very likely but it does make sense in some cases. the unversed don't exist anymore because Vanitas bit the dust, so they're out of the picture. therefore a third enemy made of light would balance out the scales a bit.

New KH 3D information.

From an interview with Nomura from Dengeki magazine:

  • KH3D was created after Nintendo approached Tetsuya Nomura. Nomura has a unique idea for this game.
  • KH3D will occur in the same timeline as current games.
  • The two main characters will be Sora and Riku. Throughout the game, the two appear to be "alternating", creating a system of two people.
  • This story is full of mystery, and will be beyond expectations. Due to the timeline, players will have to think hard about the idea, as to not *be fooled.
  • The player will realise the scenario in time, but for the meanwhile it will be a mystery twist.
  • Nomura cannot reveal more information at this time.
  • The 3D system will be taken advantage of, but more cannot be said at this time.
  • The theme of the game is "trust".

It's not much, but we can't ask for too much because Re:Coded still has to come out. And it does provide proof that KH3D occurs in the same timeline as current games. So until more information is out, enjoy what we now know. Tamroc7 21:47, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

My favorite line in that interview (which is not in your summary and i'm too lazy to find a link to,) Is that Nomura wants "A Riku that flies, and a Sora that falls." Which is also the lamest multiple language pun I'd have expected from him.204.211.185.107 19:16, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Fill in the blanks

Okay, IO read in the Ansem reports the other day that there are four unexplained asences in the series: Xehanort befor HKI, Roxas between CoM and KHII, Mickey after KHII, and Riku before some other instance (sorry, it's a miracle I remembered the other three. Maybe Namine's messin' with my head?) The first three are already explained in BBS, 358/2 days, and :Coded. Anyone who agrees this one'll account for Rikus absencem say aye!

These are explained! Hello!? Xehanort before KHI is Terra, Roxas between CoM&KHII is 358/2 Days, Mickey after KHII is Coded! Pay attention to the series! --One-Winged Angel 01:55, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry! I was just stating that every other absence WAS explained (even though the page said unexplained)But if you read other comments on this page, I think my theory is slightly more sound. Sorry for typos and I know they were explained. Do you agree or not?

Oops. I'm...Sorry. I'm developing a bad habit of partially reading things so I didn't see you say they were explained. I think part of it is that I'm confused on how you seem to say Roxas, Mickey, and Riku are mentioned in the A. Reports? --One-Winged Angel 02:08, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, check the Riku page. I checked again and it said in the Ansen Reports, every other ansence but Riku's durring KHI (We've got no idea how he got the the other side of Kingdom Hearts door). And it's alright. I just hope someone agrees.
My mistake. It was the Directors Report No. XIII. Sorry 'bout that.
No, it said "The period of Mickey's absence", which refers to either Mickey obtaining the Keyblade or what he did between CoM and KH2, neither of which have been really covered.Glorious CHAOS! 02:17, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, but I triple checked and it specifically says this period was explained in Coded. Check for yourself. Also, I'm surprised seeing you here. I'm Wh!te$tar on Digimon wiki!
That's really odd, then, because Nomura specifically said that he was referring to when Mickey was in the Realm of Darkness. What page said it had been explained?Glorious CHAOS! 04:21, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
I already said, on the Riku page. It says so right in the trivisa that becusae every other absence was covered by a game, odds are one of the three unconfirmed games (most likely this one due to the KHI style characters) will fill his absence in.--Wh!te$tar 04:29, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I've corrected it. Honestly, since you can play as Riku, this would fit more as his story, but Mickey's still hasn't been done.Glorious CHAOS! 04:58, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

so there is going to be Re:coded, 3D, and KHIII right?Oh,how the sea calls 05:56, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

There are no plans for KH3. What Nomura actually said was "Two projects which are not KH3", as he clarified in the GameInformer interview.Glorious CHAOS! 06:20, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

What a bust. Oh,how the sea calls 06:44, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

THANK YOU!!! Now that we've got that cleared up, Nomura already stated KH3D was one of the three unconfirmed games. He specifically stated re:Coded was not one of those games. Finally, he said KHIII WAS one of those games, but it's still in conceptual stages. that being said, THERE'S STILL ONE MORE GAME TO LOOK FORWARD TO!!! ZOMG!--Wh!te$tar 19:02, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

No, he specifically clarified in the GameInformer interview that he had been mistranslated by fansites, and that KH3 was "not even in the conceptual stages", and that there were absolutely no plans to do it as of now - like the situation for Birth by Sleep right after KH1 came out. It will probably be released, but no one, at all, is thinking about it right now. He also pretty heavily implicated that Re:Coded was one of the two upcoming games, as he said it was a special treat for North America. So, we pretty much know already what the hinted games are.Glorious CHAOS! 02:47, August 23, 2010 (UTC)


"Translations of your interview in the Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Ultimania seem to confirm that Kingdom Hearts III is coming along with two other games." / Tetsuya Nomura: "Kingdom Hearts III is not a confirmed title. I actually phrased my answer for the Ultimania "two titles other than III" to avoid speculation that we were working on Kingdom Hearts III." / Bryan Vore: "Are there any hints you can provide about these games?" / Tetsuya Nomura: "Hints would give away too much, and for Kingdom Hearts we're contractually obligated to keep any information that has not been officially released under wraps. However, I can say one of the two projects mentioned above came into existence because we wanted to do something for the North American fans, so we'll be announcing it at E3."

Okay. I was reading off wikipedia, so I guess it was wrong. But I've got a question. Does anyone think this'll explain Riku's absence or not!?!

The problem is: what Mickey was doing between BbS and KHI? OK, he was in the Realm of Darkness, finding Kingdom Key D. But he took ten years to do that? And he didin't met with Aqua? I guess he did something else in the mid time.

He was probably still training with Yen Sid. But this thread isn't about mickey or translations. It's about Riku! Do any of you guys even think my theory might be correct or not? I mean, c'mon. I read the other theories and they just don't make much sense to me. Is my idea THAT outrageous?--Wh!te$tar 00:08, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

I think the "period of Riku's absence" that Nomura was referring to is the period between CoM and KHII, which was partly explained during 358/2 Days. Sure, we don't know EVERYTHING that he did or the inexplicable aging mere days after the events of CoM, but you do see an overall view of just what Riku was doing while working for DiZ.

So I'm not jumping to any conclusions on what 3D is about, but I think that Riku's story has been told already.Tamroc7 13:18, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, but i still disagree. Sorry, but so far everyone's just been saying they think Riku's story is over. And it is a pretty big deal to me. I mean, can you honestly say you don't care about how Riku got intO Kingdom Hearts a mere few days after Xehanort's Heartless took over him. Secondly how did he escape Kingdom Hearts and get to Castle Oblivion? It's a plot hole you could drive a truck through!--Wh!te$tar 21:07, September 3, 2010 (UTC)`

I admit you make some good points, but there are some holes in your theory. The data we have on the game states it will present sora and riku in events that would be Impossible for the first game. I mean come on folks, twilight thorns don't usually appear in traverse town, and neither did riku, he apeared in hollow bastion first according to Com/Re:com. also Nomura revealed in an interview that the "Sora" here will not be the same Sora that we are familiar with. also to me, it just looks like a game where stuff from the other games is just smushed together for fun, i could be wrong, but its just what it seems to me. with the other games we could easily figure out how the games were connected to a certain degree. but this one has me stumped. it doesn't seem to fit with the other games, probably due to the old wardrobe. but come on! why would sora give up his drive forms for his old attire when his old attire is a drive form AKA limit form. I'm not trying to start anything or sound stupid but i just don't get ANYTHING about this game!! Chaosmage1

Why on earth is every characters 'Kingdom Hearts 3D' Story part in Other Appearances?

Template:Rucario It's not that we don't think it's part of the canon, it's just that we don't know HOW it fits in with the rest of the story. No one knows how and when it takes place just yet, and the fact that Sora and Riku are presented in their KHI incarnations doesn't help us. So until we get a solid definition of when this takes place, it's in the "Other Appearances" section.

Besides, it was a demo. There's a chance that Nomura may make the final product look entirely different. Tamroc7 13:12, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

That, and we only have a few screenshots and descriptions available - we don't even have access to the demo or trailer itself.Glorious CHAOS! 16:05, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

TGS?

Hey, i was just wondering... will Kingdom Hearts 3D be shown at the upcoming TGS??? I sure hope so...--65.126.116.219 02:24, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Sadly, there won't be a playable demo. The 3rd Birthday, Dissidia 2, and Re:Coded have that honor. However, they may show the E3 Trailer here, and maybe some details will be shown.

Of course, the 3DS may not even be there, but only time will tell. Tamroc7 02:47, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Super Special Awesome Dream Theory

Could KH3D be a prequel to KH1 and be more dreams like the one at the beginning of 1. They could be weird dream/reality things. This would also explain why in KH1 Sora says "another weird dream" (probs completely miss quoted but it was something like that) emphasis on the another. He could have been having more weird dreams before that one. Oh and so could Riku.

i could be wrong but i dont think sora said anything about another weird dream. I am pretty sure the one at the beginning of KH1 is the only weird dream

In the opening to KHI, he talks about having these "weird thoughts," not dreams. So no, I don't think that's the idea, but it's still a good thought. Tamroc7 03:46, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

OK, feel free to call me stupid, because this idea is just that.

Maybe this game alternates between you playing as sora and riku, but the rest of the plot stays the same around it and it is not actually sora/riku, but xion because she has taken both of their appearances. ok i know its crazy and does not resolve the timeline issue, but it is certainly insane enough for square and TN.

Famitsu interview

The next issue of Famitsu Weekly will include an interview with the director of the Kingdom Hearts series, Tetsuya Nomura. Heartsation has translated a summary of this interview and at the bottom 3D was mentioned: - The next title is Kingdom Hearts 3D. The story takes place after Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded. Now that Re:Coded is over the Osaka team is meeting up and beginning development.

So it seems like that KH3D takes place after Re:Coded - JTD95 13:00, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Are you sure they didn't mean the development or situation takes place after Re:coded? The next line doesn't tie in as well unless that's what they meant.Glorious CHAOS! 13:05, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

The story takes place after Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded I would say that means 3D takes place after Re:coded - JTD95 13:18, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, and Heartstation also translated Nomura saying that KH3 would come out soon. We all know how that ended up.Glorious CHAOS! 13:53, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Somehow I got the feeling that this will be another data-based game again like Re:Coded... just saying tho 17master 14:40, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Just wait until the interview actually comes out to see whether or not he mentions it taking place after Re:coded.

Of course, I still stand behind the theory that some information may come out with the 3DS's release date news, which should be on the 29th, so we may get some solid answers. (But then again, this is Nomura we're talking about.) Tamroc7 02:15, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

Nomura said they weren't planning to make a FM to BBS. Also, he's not the only one to chose if they'll make a FM or not. Maybe some of his bosses said they had to make one... - JTD95 23:15, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

The Nintendo 3ds conference

Ok, I don't know how someone has already done this to the article, but no were in that short interview did nomura say Anything that we have in the trivia section. (that and it directly contradicts previous interviews.66.56.199.131 20:08, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Template:IZerox


Nomura: "Though it seems a tentative name, we have included "3D" in the new Kingdom Hearts game title. It also includes "3" which implies that this may be the third iteration of Kingdom Hearts. You'll be able to see what kind of game it will be like from this tentative name. With the encounters, and the contacts with others as the game's theme, you will grow with the character, with the characters in the game. But it's not Sora, whom you are familiar with. This time, you will realize growth by the effects of someone else. It's a unique, and more than a bit of a strange system, that we are trying to build this time. There are limits on the things that we can do in the universe of Kingdom Hearts, but the things we cannot do, we'd like to try them in other software. Starting from Kingdom Hearts, I'd like to work on several titles for the Nintendo 3DS."

Previous interviews indicate that Sora and Riku will be the main characters.204.211.185.107 14:43, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

That doesn't mean Sora and Riku won't be the main characters. It could just mean that, while we play as them, nothing really important happens to them, and that, like in Days with Xion, we see the important things happening to somebody else.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 14:53, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

well yeah, previous. The game's on development, there's bound to be mistakes and revisions. Nomura himself states that the main character won't be the same Sora we knew 17master 14:55, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

READ WHAT WAS POSTED. WATCH THE VIDEO. HE DIDN'T SAY THAT. All that aside, Nomura changes bit's and pieces sure, most of the trailers and concept art show differences from the finished project. But Nomura says that mostly he thinks of gameplay first before story and;

  • KH3D was created after Nintendo approached Tetsuya Nomura. Nomura has a unique idea for this game.
  • KH3D will occur in the same timeline as the current games.
  • The Two main characters will be Sora and Riku. Throughout the game the two appear to be "alternating", creating a system of two people.
    • Nomura wants "A Riku that flies, a Sora that falls."
  • This story will be full of mystery and will beyond expectations. Due to the timeline, players will have to think hard about the idea, as to not be fooled.
  • The player will realise the scenario in time, but for the meanwhile it will be a mystery twist.
  • Nomura cannot reveal more information at this time.
  • The 3d system will be taken advantage of, but more cannot be said at this time.
  • The Theme of the game is "trust".

CALM DOWN what we mean is Sora and Riku are the main characters, BUT the "Sora" in the game is not the Sora we knew. Meaning that it might be an alternate form of Sora, like Data Sora. We didn't specifically said those two won't be the main character, we just pointed out that the Sora here is most likely will not be the same Sora we know. 17master 15:20, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

It doesn't say that there is a different Sora.

"You will realize growth by the effects of someone else."

What Nomura meant by a Sora that falls and a Riku that flies?--Xabryn 16:07, October 8, 2010 (UTC) Template:WS

Xabryn, It's a pun. because "Sora" is the japanese word for sky, and "Riku" is the japanese word for land. so, a "Flying land" and "Falling sky" implies, among other things, that their usual positions would be reversed. Also, I can't help but think that the part in the 3DS conference talking about characters has more to do with gameplay and how the characters "grow" and "level up", than anything else. http://www.siliconera.com/2009/12/28/is-this-one-of-tetsuya-nomuras-unannounced-games/

He doesn't say that this Sora is not the one we know, he says that growth is realised not by Sora but by "someone else".204.211.185.107 17:03, October 8, 2010 (UTC) Template:ST

Nomura: " With the encounters, and the contacts with others as the game's theme, you will grow with the character, with the characters in the game. But it's not Sora, whom you are familiar with. This time, you will realize growth by the effects of someone else."

He is not saying that we will be unfamiliar with this Sora, He is saying that We are already familiar with Sora, and you're not going to grow with Sora, because we use him or encounter him, and grow with him in every KH game! and Now we are going to realize the growths of someone else! PS. RtG

The European flag isn't there because 3D so far hasn't been confirmed to come here yet. Obviously it will be released in Japan, and since it was shown at E3 that pretty much confirms it to be released in the US and Canada too. I'm sure the game will come to Europe too, it just isn't confirmed yet...

Also, the thing you said about KH3D being like Re:Com all over again, it was pretty obvious what you actually meant... - JTD95 19:55, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

...I don't care whether or not it'll be released in NA. My main question is "Since the European flag doesn't appear in the Publisher(s) and Release date(s) sections, will KH3D be released in Europe or not?"

In other words, will Square give us Europeans the middle finger yet again, or not? --84.249.211.221 20:20, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

He's not talking about Re:Coded, he's talking about KH3D

^Which is even less likely to not receive an international release.204.211.185.107 12:43, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

New 3D news

• The atmosphere in KH3D will be different from other titles. • There will be new worlds. • Re:Coded's ending and BBS' secret movies give hints as to what Sora has to do in future titles. • KH3D will be close to how CoM had a story for Sora and Riku, but it's not like they are going to be separated in this adventure. • Nomura wants to add three new "elements" to KH3D, things that wouldn't be possible to do on any console other than Nintendo 3DS. • Nomura is thinking about more titles apart from KH3D.

Again, we don't get much, but it sounds like Sora is still a main character. Tamroc7 17:09, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

I Did watch it, around the time I posted it here, and I'm guessing you haven't, because what he actually said was: "With the encounters, and the contacts with others as the game's theme, you will grow with the character, with the characters in the game. But it's not Sora, whom you are familiar with, this time you will realise growth by the effects of someone else."

What we know so far...

I'm not gonna add on to this section. But could SOMEONE please make a list of every single rumor and confirmation about 3D in this section? Like this:

What we know:
  1. Sora, Kairi, and Riku are all in the game.
  2. The game is directly connected to Reconnect: Kingdom Hearts
  3. The development team from BBS is also working on 3D
  4. Most worlds will be all new!
Rumors:
  1. Mickey is in the game(btw im not actually saying he is, its just an example so everyone knows what im saying)

If someone could just do this that would be perfect. --Jacobmirror 20:39, November 12, 2010 (UTC)

Everything we know is listed in the article. As for rumors...well, I'm officially starting the rumor that Kingdom Hearts 3D will introduce Disney Channel worlds, and Sora dumps Kairi for Hannah Montanna. And then actually goes to Montanna, and realizes that he should be dating...let's say Joey Fatone. BUT THEN HE MARRIES JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND THEY FUSE TOGETHER INTO A HYBRID SORA/NSYNC BEAST.

That is why it's always a bad idea to catalogue rumors.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 21:16, November 12, 2010 (UTC)

After reading This article, I'm wondering if KH3D takes place after Re:Coded then that could explain their original KH appearance because Yen Sid mentioned in Re:Coded that Mickey should bring Sora and Riku to him and take the Mark of Mastery exam, so this all could be a part of the test or could have some sort of time traveling adventure. --BurstDragon 10:37, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

I doubt it, but its not a bad thought either. Definitely an interesting theory, and an interesting plot for a fanfic too. Maybe someone should write one with that plot. --Jacobmirror 22:04, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

I edited the What We Know part! Roxas pwns sora47 05:23, November 25, 2010 (UTC)Roxas_pwns_sora47

New interview: relevant portions:

“Kingdom Hearts 3D revolves around the Mark of Mastery exam. At the moment we are continuing in the trial and error stage, figuring out what kind of axis the system will be based on, etc.”

“In 3D you will be able to play as Sora and Riku, but we are considering making their main operation systems different. In Chain of Memories they both used cards but they used them differently. We’re thinking about having two types of play styles like that.”

“Even though it’s a secret as to why Sora and Riku appear in their Kingdom Hearts outfits, it’s essential for the story.”

“As for the worlds, outside of Traverse Town and the other originals, we plan on making all of the Disney ones new.”

“3D is connected to Kingdom Hearts III. The plan is to show how the characters level up, along with the play system and story, they are connected to KH3. It’s fair to assume that the ending of 3D will continue into the story of KH3.”

“The Kingdom Hearts series has fundamentally been a single player game. Since it’s different than the Final Fantasy series which is founded on party play, the way the characters level up is different. Because there are various things that can and can’t be done, the things I can’t do in Final Fantasy Versus XIII I’m doing in Kingdom Hearts. Still I think those sorts of differences are there.”

I've added a few bits from this, but most of the development info still needs to be added. Also, all material added based on this interview needs to be cited to the famitsu interview, with the full quote within the cite, and "(translated by heartstation)" with a link to the translation within the cite.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 15:15, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

...reconnect is the name of the movie at the end of Re:coded, just like "Deep Dive" is the name of the movie at the end of KH Final Mix. The one about 3D is in the Re:coded ultimania; I don't have a link on me, though. Wikipedia might.

Trivia

I'm killing at least the second one if there is not a source soon. It is completely... what's the word... speculative? Template:The Inexistentsig 03:15, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Mastery of Mark?

So I was thinking, the reason why Sora and Riku are both dressed in their original clothes, I think is because maybe they are inside a computer? Like to take the exam, Yen sid and Mickey places them inside. And maybe it's like placed somewhere so they can go inside and look around to find Ven, Aqua and Terra. But this is just like a thought, but it's the most reasonable idea I could think of why they are dressed in their normal clothes.

--Black rose1809 06:23, January 13, 2011 (UTC)BlackRose09

Or maybe it's to find Mark. maggosh 06:26, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

Ummm...maybe it's the beta version of the game? They have yet made changes to their appearance because its still in beta form, ya know....still under development? after all it won't be coming out for quite awhile, oh and i think the sora being different thing may have something to do with Ventus.--Lugiarules100 16:59, January 13, 2011 (UTC)


Why would Sora (and to some extent Riku though he is more believable) even have to take the Mark of Mastery Exam? He has saved the universe twice already and the keyblade chose him. This is like saying Luke Skywalker still needs to run and pass the Jedi Trails to become a Jedi. He is the only one left, he saved the galaxy, and he was trained by THE Jedi Master (Yoda). --Xyreco 19:18, January 18, 2011 (UTC) Xyreco

Probably because Sora and Riku are NOT the last Keyblade wielders, and perhaps because being a Keyblade Master affords a Keyblade wielder certain rights, abilities, benefits, etc. that were previously unavailable to him or her. Being a Jedi is as simple as being able to use a lightsaber, The Force, and understanding the fundamentals of the light side of The Force and the way of the Jedi. Also, a Keyblade Master has not ever instructed them to take the exam, and if King Mickey is any support, the process only needs a Keyblade wielder to begin the exam, and a Keyblade Master to approve of the wielder's success.

Template:Xemnas8

Thats pretty interesting...wonder what made them change it.--Lugiarules100 18:10, January 18, 2011 (UTC)


About the upside-down Keyblade weilding, if you look closely in many cutscenes they do that. For example in the cutscene "The Last Bastion of Free Will" when the Lingering Will is created when it lifts the Ends of the Earth out of the ground the teeth are facing down, but Terra's fighting style has teeth facing up. Also when ever Roxas summons the Oathkeeper and Oblivion it always shows the teeth for both Keyblades facing downward but during acuall gameplay the teeth face up. So I don't really consider this to be a topic worth discussing but that's just me. LightoftheDarkness 05:00, January 19, 2011 (UTC)

Not Notre Dame

Sorry to tell you guys, but that's Twilight Town, maybe there won't be new worlds after all, just original Kingdom Hearts worlds in the game. Chomper4 21:23, January 19, 2011 (UTC)

Famitsu confirmed it's Notre Dame. maggosh 21:25, January 19, 2011 (UTC)
I agree that specific scene looks like Twilight Town (especially the square below) except that there are not that many bells in its clock tower. Plus, as maggosh noted, it's been officially confirmed.

But it's a fan site, give me stuff that makes it not Twilight Town. Chomper4 22:32, January 19, 2011 (UTC)
You are the one who is saying we're all wrong. So, you should prove us that it is Twilight Town. BTW: I clearly recognize the Seine. But I never saw a river in Twilight Town. And where is the forest with the Haunted Mansion? And what's with these colourfull ballons? They have exactly the colours from the scene in the Hunchback. So it's obvious, don't you think?--Drace 14:27, January 21, 2011 (UTC)
Hunchback is one of my favorite Disney movies ever. I remember that inside shot of the bell tower with the rafters and the large opening to the outside. I also know, after studying French for a few years, what Paris looks like (you get shown a lotta maps of France and Paris when you're taking French classes). It's an island, and the shape seemed to feel right to my memory. As well, when he was approaching the ground, there was a medieval-style-patterned tent. Overall, my heart swelled when I realized this is proof that they're putting in Hunchback, even without confirmation. (Then again, they did want to put Pinocchio's world into 358/2 Days, and Nintendo Power even said it'd be in it, but we know what happened with that...)FT 04:00, February 14, 2011 (UTC)

There's no twilight in the sky, for one thing. Twilight Town has only one clock tower, and I'm pretty sure they don't have any bells on the top tower. And in the trailer, they were rivers. Twilight Town was bulit along a slope.--NinjaSheik 22:35, January 19, 2011 (UTC)

And plus...Famitsu is a magazine publisher. How you could misconstrue them as a fan site is beyond me. maggosh 22:54, January 19, 2011 (UTC)

good that you mentioned it but an interesting thing is why are those two(that one?) is appearing instead of Xehanort? Maybe a subtle hint to the extent of Xehanort's powers of darkness(it's been shown to allow some shape-shifting) or maybe those two would return somehow which isn't possible unless that dream part of the title is too literal.

Always one system

I am sick of them making Kingdom Hearts games soley on one system, I have a psp but no DS, the developers think everybody is rich and can buy every system. They make one game on psp two on ds and now the 3ds. They should make it on Psp as well, see doing it on one system is not helping people get the story, so now i have to read on the wiki to find out what happens in the story.Avatar symbiote 13:42, January 21, 2011 (UTC)Avatar symbiote

Of course... they shouldn't respect the technical possibilities, just to make a special game for *your* claims. Pure egoism... If you want to see the story, why don't you do the same as me? Watch walkthroughs! You can find them everywhere in the web. I am a huge KH-Fan, and never played a game myself. I'm just watching them. That's for free and completely satisfying for my part.--Drace 14:43, January 21, 2011 (UTC)

202.128.35.30 08:32, February 5, 2011 (UTC) I think htey should make a compilation of all games of all current systems (curretly PSP,PS3,Wii&DS).This a service for all fans who can't get all systems to play the game. (Kingdom Hearts Re:Complete)

And the fan's response?
You’re going to betray us after saying it would never come out? I’m cancelling my pre-orders.
Lying to customers is how you do business, eh? I’ll never buy a Square Enix title again.
Stop your pompous waffling and resign! Haven’t you made enough money yet? Next time put a guy who actually loves games in charge.
What’s up with game developers? Practically everything they say is a lie…
maggosh 08:38, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

those fans were just screwed-up nutjobs who had nothing better to do then bitch about something they didn't understand, when SE bought out FFXIII in japan for the X360, the fans felt betrayed because they wasted their allowance on getting a PS3 just so they can play FFXIII, this lead to deaths threats towards SE CEO, you've got to give the guy a break, if he said that the game is PS3 exclusive, then releases it for the X360(heres an idea, it wasn't lying, PLANS CHANGE). the reason why SE doesn't just release the KH series on solely one system is so they can expand the range of consoles to sell them (example: kingdom hearts is released on PS2, what if you only had a DS? they release KH:358/2 Days on the DS so that those people don't get left out, sure they missed out on the original story but at least they can still have fun with it), as for releasing the recent games on handhelds(PSP,DS) they wanted to bring in multiplayer gameplay which was easy with the handheld's wireless connectivity. MY POINT IS...that if you want more sales, you need to widen your range of customers, which there are a lot of. sony customers, microsoft customers and nintendo customers. (i'm only saying this because i've studied how businesses work, in order to be a successful business, you HAVE to be make a profit, otherwise your business is OVER) they probably needed to make a new game with the 3DS, and don't be surprised if they make one for the NGP(PSP2) thats how businesses work. (if this explanation HURTS/insults you in any way, i'm sorry but i just couldn't take it anymore, and i needed to get that off my chest) Xavnirs 15:11, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

DDD Icon

I know this is likely rather meaningless, but I noticed the icon for DDD is a purple KH symbol. The logo of the game isn't purple, just the letters. The logo itself is grey. I thought that a more adequate icon would be a grey symbol like the one for CoM, with a purple 3D in the middle like the Re games. Just a thought. EnglishJoker 15:47, January 22, 2011 (UTC)

Have you seen the logo of BBS? We didn't do it for that, and since we tend not to add lettering except for remakes and reissues, there's no reason to do it for this. --

OK. It was just a thought anyway. And the BBS logo is a little different, Neumannz, because it was already light blue, so it wouldn't need the letters "BBS" to show it was "Birth by Sleep". And one other thing: it may be irrelevant, I know, but am I the only one who's willing to bet that the Kingdom Hearts III logo will be green? EnglishJoker 22:16, January 23, 2011 (UTC)
Maybe.
If you look closely at the heart in the BBS logo, it's actually grey. Only the words are light blue. (I remember we had a discussion about it when BBS, Days, and coded were coming out. I think DTN was the one who colored it blue...) --

New Trailer

Do you think the trailer that will come on January 27th will be the same one we saw or will it be different? Chomper4 19:26, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

It's the same one. It was just leaked online early. EnglishJoker 12:38, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

What will happen on the 27th January? - JTD 15:12, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

The trailer that's on the KH3D page was originally to be released online on the 27th of January, but it's already been leaked, so the 27th is no longer a special day for KH. EnglishJoker 17:15, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, the HD version is going to be released on the 27th. So it is. maggosh 17:24, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Gameplay Section

So, from the argument over my addition of a gameplay section, it's been removed because apparently what we see in the trailer isn't really anything at all, even though the entire page is made up of stuff from both trailers, videos, and magazine articles. Then I'm told that "a trailer=/=magazine article." Then you should get rid of that entire section marked "Trailer," because all that is is a description of a trailer people can't see, and subsequently can't tell if it's true. However, I make a Gameplay section, mentioning things CLEARLY shown in the 1st Production Premiere Trailer (Which you guys have in a neat little Video Gallery down at the bottom), and suddenly we have no proof? There's a video! Right there at the bottom!

A Wiki is supposed to gather information, I gathered information from the trailer, and put it down. I've done it extensively with Dissidia 012 trailers and gameplay videos, and people LOVE our site for it. And if anything is wrong, it can always be changed. no big deal. That's what happens when more information comes to light. The more information you can reveal, and the sooner, makes you guys a much better place for people to get information. I put down information extrapolated from a trailer. I didn't make it up. It's all there. Derekoe 23:41, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

The difference there is that having a gameplay section makes it look like what you've posted has been officially confirmed. We have a trailer section because that is pretty much the only information we have on the game right now, but it is clearly prefaced that it is only in the trailer. Just because something is in the trailer doesn't mean that it will make it into the game.

That section only covers the E3 2010 trailer. the 1st Production Developer's Conference trailer material is absent, which you may proceed in doing, RoxasNobody. maggosh 00:23, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

I have to say, Derekoe is right! All he wrote is clearly shown in the trailer. It's no rumor or speculation but officially anounced. I mean... what is a trailer, if not an official announcement? Don't you think, it was Nomura, who has decided, what to put in the video? So where is the difference between the trailer and an interview, or something? Of course, all informations of the trailer can change later in development... that's true... but does that mean, the informations of an official interview can not change?

Don't get me wrong, I really respect you guys for always looking at the source of all the informations. But that can be exaggerated, too. I mean, isn't that the purpose of wikias? To gather informations and correct them if they *really* seem to be wrong. That's what I (as one of your readers) would expect anyway... for me, it's just another reason to follow the page. --Drace 01:44, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Trailers are not always accurate. When early trailers of BBS came out, even those with gameplay, they had scenes and gameplay mechanics absent from the final game. User:Chitalian8/Sig 01:49, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, all gameplay mechanics were present; you're thinking of the interface that was changed. With the exception of the DKSigma3 trailer, of course. maggosh 02:57, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
either way, things changed, which means that the early trailers aren't 100% accurate. that's why we still aren't using the 3D game icon on any of the pages, even though the trailers clearly showed tons of stuff that we could use it on--

But they should be on Sora and Riku's pages because Nomura himself said they're in for sure. maggosh 03:18, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
And that's why we should fear these informations and ignore them? Isn't there a difference between "wrong" and "most likely, but may change later"? Why is the trailer still on the page, if it can't be trusted? Why was the page once called "3D"... we knew, it is just a tentative title. That just makes no sense. Seriously... if we're all always afraid of unprobable changes of informations *in the future*, we should close this whole page! EVERYTHING can change later, started by the title, down to the story and ended by the gallery. Come on, it's ridicoulus! We can always just put the actual informations on this wiki... every reader knows that! This is still just a fanpage, not the Now York Times, or something. And I still don't get, why the trailer isn't a trustable source, but the first look on the E3 is. Why do you think, informations out of an interview can NOT change later? I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed. I thought a good wiki should be as informative as possible and not just trustfully. Of course, it's important to look at the source, but this is just exaggerated. Drace 12:29, January 25, 2011 (UTC)


I've just got to say, putting in "gameplay info" just based on snapshots from trailers is one of the few things I heavily dislike about the FFWiki. And my mind is boggled on how you could interpret any gameplay out of that thing - we saw a few shots of Riku bouncing off walls, and Sora gliding, neither of which are actual gameplay mechanics; just like "sticking his Keyblade down Cerberus's gullet" is not a gameplay mechanic of Kingdom Hearts II. Furthermore, "The more information you can reveal, and the sooner, makes you guys a much better place for people to get information." is only true if your information is useful and accurate - speculations on a game no one will be able to play for many months absolutely fail those criteria.

Oh, I see.

Based on the Square-Enix's 1st Production Premiere Conference trailer, gameplay seems to feature the Command Deck system used in Birth by Sleep and Re:coded (or something similar to it). In the trailer their deck contains the staple Fire, Thunder, and Blizzard commands, as well as the normal Attack command. Sora and Riku also have access to the new, purple "Drop" meter, although the mechanics of it have not yet been revealed. Sora and Riku also seem to be able to perform many acrobatic maneuvers, seen grinding on railings, jumping back and forth off walls, and swinging from lamp poles while they attack Heartless.

You didn't see a problem with this? The tone of constant confusion and speculation makes us seem like we're stoners or something.

All I know is that when a magazine article covers what little news they are given about a game, they also extrapolate to almost that same extent from what they see, and from what they know. We see something very similar to the Command Deck, we see Sora and Riku grinding, bounding, and swinging. That's what the gameplay section talks about. It doesn't mention any details out of no where. It's not like I said "Acrobatic feats will be powered by the Drop meter," which is totally speculation. I talked about things that are clearly seen in the trailer, it's not speculation. IT'S RIGHT THERE! I mention that the Command Deck is present, and that you can do crazy acrobatics, and that there's a new "Drop" meter. If it all changes when more information is divulged, then so be it. That's what every damn news agency does. They report what they know, and then update when they know more. If you just sit tight and say "Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is coming out" with the small bits of information you have, and then not update until you have solid evidence, people will overlook it. Any information, no matter how small, as long as it has a source (like mine did), is good.

And my apologies, but you can't cite a "tone of confusion" when just about every trailer Kingdom Hearts has ever had confuses the hell out of everyone.Derekoe 20:48, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

I can certainly cite a "tone of confusion" if the passage sounds like it was written while toking.
You claim that it features the command deck system, which is speculation. You claim that they can perform many acrobatic maneuvers - that is speculation, the bits they do in the trailer could easily be part of a reaction command or mini-game, just as in Kingdom Hearts II.
And, again, this is not a news site. It is an encyclopedia. Part of being a (responsible) encyclopedia means waiting to fact-check info. Vomiting up guesses based on split-second snippets from a trailer far, far in advance of the finalized game is wildly irresponsible, especially when every time that's been attempted in the past, it was shown to be a mistake.

I claim it features the Command Deck because it is there, plain as day. Anyone who has played Birth by Sleep or Re:coded knows that system. I claim that they can perform many acrobatic maneuvers because they do. I never stated how they go about it. It could very well be a Reaction Command mechanic. It would be different if I tried to claim HOW the mechanics were utilized, like "Sora and Riku are seen performing acrobatic feats, used in a similar way as the Reaction Command system." We both know that that statement isn't true, because we don't know how it's utilized, just that it is in some way. We see it there as plain as day, just like the Command Deck. The game is "making use of the system's 3D technology such as "falling from high places" and "flying far distances"" as stated in the article, and then the entirety of the gameplay shown is of them doing nothing but acrobatic feats that perfectly exemplify those 3D features. Why would they show us such a crazy, well-defined mechanic if it were subject to change and even not be included? It'd be like having shown people how Reaction Commands work, and then just removing it from Kingdom Hearts II entirely half-way through development, after having already essentially promised the new feature.Derekoe 07:13, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

No, what you see is a list of techniques with "Command" at the top. It could easily be the same system as KH1 and KH2, there's no need for it to be the Command Deck system.
The second half of your bit is pure speculation, and unfounded at that - they have removed entire worlds in pretty much every game since the first (Hell, in CoM they removed two), and have consistently revamped the system as time goes on. For example, they said they originally planned to have Lion Sora in KH1, but couldn't get it to work.
Again, there is no point to a section devoted to gameplay that is based purely on guesswork from a snippet of a trailer released far, far in advance of the actual game. We know for a fact that virtually everything they put out now will be changed by the time the game is released; it's happened literally every time before. If you want to report what specifically is seen in the trailer (no fluff like you had above about "we don't know this, something similar to this"), that can be done in the trailer section, but putting the guesswork in a prominent spot like you did asserts authority and accuracy it simply doesn't have.

New Enemy?

I was looking at the banner on the Japanese Official site, and I noticed there was a symbol we haven't seen before. Its like the heart-part of the Unversed symbol, but with two little things on the sides and a bit coming off of the bottom... I'll just go upload it to the wiki. Anyways, did anyone else notice it? Nobody Sovereign 22:51, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

That's the symbol that appears next to the "Drop" gauge in the trailer. --

Should we add the new HD Vid onto this page now? If we should here's the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcKDo39twwc&feature=player_embedded. Also what is the music called in the trailer? Axeken CloudKH2LowerBoxbetterquality 05:34, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

i think the music is called "Destati", or it might be a different version. EDIT:indeed it is epic LapisScarab. Xavnirs 13:41, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, it's a remix of Destati, a recurring theme in the series (and an epic one, I might add).

New Clothing

Sora and Riku may be getting new threads for this game - http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2011/01/30/kh3d_sora_riku_clothes/. DoreikuKuroofangu 10:04, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Template:WB

What I think the article means is that in some parts of the game you'll play as Sora and Riku in their KH1 forms, and in some other parts, you'll be playing in their KH2 forms. - JTD 13:25, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

"Famitsu.com has posted a more complete version of Weekly Famitsu's recent Tetsuya Nomura interview covering Kingdom Hearts 3D. We summarized the original interview here, but there are a few additional bits in the full version, including additional hints on the strange character switching system, and mention of clothing design changes for Sora and Riku." Just to clarify. User:Dan da Man36/Sig 13:33, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
And Nomura said in the interview he's going to design a new clothes for them so people won't think Dream Drop Distance is a remake.

New Name?

According to this [[6]] the actual name is Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. Someone better check this. Axeken CloudKH2LowerBoxbetterquality 05:34, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

The official site, however, clearly has the 3D in the title. maggosh 05:36, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

Yes but in an interview Nomura has said that the title Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance was the proper way of saying the title here's the link [[7]] so it should be changed. Xander19 05:08, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

How it should be said ≠ how it should be written. maggosh 05:28, February 1, 2011 (UTC)
It's kind of like the Roxas game, isn't it? It says "Kingdom Hearts: Three hundred and fifty eight over two days", but it's pronounced "Kingdom Hearts: Three five eight days over two." EnglishJoker 18:57, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

It's been confirmed by Tetsuya Nomura that the game is called Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance.--KRoNoS 05:36, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

The relevant bit is actually the first question:

You were able to officially announce the title. Is it to be read "Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance"?

Nomura: No, "Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance". The subtitle portion can be abbreviated, I suppose you can call it "Kingdom Hearts 3D".

So yeah, that's still how you read it. It's not the official title of the game, which is seriously right there on the logo.

I think what he's trying to say is that you can't have both "3D" and "Dream Drop Distance" in the same sentence. It's either Kingdom Hearts 3D or Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance. Otherwise the title would be "Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance: Dream Drop Distance." J. Severe (Tryin' to find his place in the world, one wiki at a time!) 22:26, February 4, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, but he specifically says that's how it's read. This is exactly the same situation as with Days.

The title of the game is what you see in the bloody logo. How it is pronounced is a different story. If 3D makes another random logo change to "Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance", then we can change the name. --User:LegoAlchemist/Sig 01:27, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

Illusion

I know it's too early to tell, but I have this hunch that Dream Drop Distance could be based on Sora and Riku's memories. And this could also explain the reason why Sora and Riku are in their KH outfits. And (an exception for Notre Dame) in the trailer, they only appear in worlds they've already been.User:Darkheart3/Autosig

Nomura stated that the Disney worlds, aside from Traverse Town, would all be new. Plus, Xemnas and Ansem seem to appear in the game, and in Traverse Town. That was never in either of their memories, Xemnas never even uncovered his hood to KH Sora and Riku. User:Chitalian8/Sig 22:20, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

Notre Dame in trailer

I know it sounds like speculation, but I think it's safe to say that the scene with the Bells ringing are from Notre Dame, because I just compared that bit in the trailer with the beginning of the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and the bells' structures look EXACTLY the same, and Nomura did say there would be a Hunchback-based world. The shots of the river and Sora falling are maybe still uncertain, but the Bells are definitely Notre Dame. I think it should be put in the article now, because it seems too obvious to require a citation. EnglishJoker 17:10, February 14, 2011 (UTC)

Blasphemy!
But seriously, even if we can pretty much take it as a given that that's the HoND world, what would you write in the captions that wouldn't be A) speculating on a name or B) awkward sounding? And don't say "Paris", there's only a chance that Paris will actually be mentioned in the game.
And of course there's always the question of "how obvious is obvious enough", but I'll leave that alone for now. --

It used to say "Sora is seen running through the Bell Tower inside Notre Dame". "Notre Dame" is the cathedral, not the world, so it's not speculation, and even if it is, then we can say "Sora is seen running through the Bell Tower in a Hunchback of Notre Dame-based world".

*Idea*

What if Sora and Riku go back in time somehow to reveal or prevent something. It might also explain what Naminé ment by prevent everyone's suffer. It could also explain why Sora and Riku have the apperance they had in Kingdom Hearts. Also do you think Xehanort whereabouts and status will be revealed in the game?.
