It's the 29th and KH3 has been officially released to the rest of the world. Let's have a thread and celebrate!Don't have much KH3 based stuff, but I'll do a mini dump to get the thread started.
>>3292025Last one for now, hope you guys are enjoying the game and enjoyed the mini dump.
Love the Gula this one, excuse Ava and Invi, there's isn't much UX art that aren't new union leaders like Ephemera and Skuld, the foretellers together, and some player characters, aka, (you). Hopefully KH3 changes that.
I don't have much but just curious how everyone is enjoying KH3!?
>>3292612Loving it so far. The Gummi Ship sections are amazing and being able to swap Keyblades in battle is fun as fuck.
>>3292612It's fun, but I can't believe how much every character is dunking on Sora for not being the sharpest knife in the drawer.
>>3293085wait till pirates and big hero 6. Slogs of tutorials and horrible character writing.
>>3292612I liked it, but man... that ending/secret ending... Nomura is such a fucking teaser haha
>>3292612Finished the game and enjoyed it, right now just trying to get Ultima Weapon. I did have issues with the pacing and the way some characters were treated or were reduced to nothing. Frozen worst world.
>>3293776how can you say that after pirates the ship tutorial wolrd?Or Big Hero 6 not only giving you a movement tutorial near the end of the game, but also ruining all the big hero 6 characters? That world made me hate the series.Frozen was only bad because of Olfa, you still got to fight ice dragons and hang out with snowball.Kairi was written worse than ever though
>>3293799Oh, pirates was bad also, but that didn't have annoying insert songs and I hate Frozen with a passion. Never watched Big Hero 6.Kairi was fucking waste of character; she was still the maiden in distress even after "training" with Lea. I had hope she would be able to stand up for herself and be able to fight back but nothing.
>>3293800Between her not even being able to run with her keyblade, only swinging at 1 hearless, and then getting taken for not letting go of a keyblade she can summon at will really made me go back to kh2 days of saying she was a horrible character.
>>3293800even Lea was a waste...
>>3293839Don't remind me, once he got that keyblade he became useless.>>3293825She's a horrible character because she's horribly written. The terribly written romance between the Kairi and Sora doesn't help either, Nomura can't write romance for shit. If they wanted me to believe in their romance, she should have had a bigger, proactive role and been in each game, with a characterization and relationship on par with Riku's.
>>3293856>we live in a world in which Kairi is a better character in KH2I want to believe that Nomura doesn't care about sokairi as a whole but Disney finally caught out how gay Sora and Riku were these past 10 years.
>>3293887KH2 has had execrable romance since day 1 and Sokai has also been blatantly telegraphed since day 1. Nomura is just an atrociously bad writer.
>>3293893*KH, not KH2 in particular
>>3293743Damn, this artist is really good. Sora looks cute and sexy as fuck.
>>3293856speaking of Nomura not being a good writer, how the fuck did they get Namine back if Kairi was still not back? Like Roxas and Xion poof back in because of Sora being there, but Namine gets to just wake up because the programed the body? It didn't make sense.
>>3294010Maybe after Kairi was killed, Namine's heart went into a nearby vessel and somebody like Demyx or Vexen since they can use portals and took her back to Radiant Garden? I don't know, I don't understand Nomura. Maybe it'll be answered in the Ultimania book.
Roxas is a good boy
They missed the opportunity to make Roxas and Ventus interact a little more, other than them saying “Uh?”Wtf Nomura
>>3294290He deserves his harem.
Because of the release of KH III, I finally got interested in the series. I tried playing 358/2 Days yesterday but I heard the game is pretty mediocre and I don't have time to waste right now.But does anyone remember how in 2006 AkuRoku was the biggest thing ever? I remember how in middle school I would browse LJ and find so much smexy AkuRoku and Orgy XIII stuff. I didn't have a PS2 at the time, so I never got into the series and didn't pay much attention. But I still have vivid memories of running into that stuff up until this day.Also now that I think about it, why was AkuRoku so popular? As far as I can tell, they barely interacted in KHII. Was it just 16-18 fangirls driving the whole phenomenon?Now all the Axel and Roxas fanart I found on pixiv has Xion in it. Go figure.
>>3294522>16-18 fangirlsTry 10-15. 99% of KH shipping never made any sense.
>>3294522they're friends, Axel spends all of kh2 trying to get Roxas back, and dies for Sora to save him/Roxas cause Roxas made him feel normal/had a heart again.358/2 Is decent compared to other spin offs like COM, recoded and other handheld ones. You're gonna get a look into the Org, the Akuroku friendship, the meaning behind Xion and why she's special (my favorite girl, thank you 3) It's like 20 hours, and you can redo missions as other Org members, so if you favorite is like Demyx you can go do water dance and thats kind of cool. I honestly speed beat the game in college, was playing with my friends during a break and had the game fall out, I bought and beat a 2nd copy cause I liked it so much.
More Terra please
>>3294568lol I was on LJ so I thought most people were a little older than say on ff.net. I was 11-12 at the time so I thought 15-16 year olds were sooo old. Good times.
Daily reminder that Isa is the Arabic word for Jesus.
Is Hayner/Seifer a thing? Or was that just something younger me was into?
>>3293102Sora is cute and dumb and I love him.Then again, cute and dumb guys are hot in general.
>Tfw gotta wait for a long time before I get KH3 or I get to see Sora in Smash Ultimate.It hurts, bros...
Fellas, where's all the good Ventus
>>3295926>cute and dumb guys are hot in generalNot a truer statement has ever been said in the history of humanity.
To the anon who responds with Terra x Ventus fanart/discussions to those terraxaqua, and venxaqua posters at /v/ you are my hero.
>used to rp as roxas on myspace before the site purged itself>had no idea what the fuck I was doing>met a friendly sora and we instantly clicked>taught me to the ropes around myspace>exchanged msn's>after school used to always get on msn to talk to sora and have a lazy day with>literally turned into my best friend>met some dude who got in between us>sided with the dude because of being young and dumb>she tried to warn me, didn't listen>drifted away and ignored her>she constantly tried to reach out>9 years later>play KH3>sora talks about saving roxas and getting him out>get reminded of old myspace/msn era friend>cope by reading sora x roxas fanfic Hope she's been well and enjoying kingdom hearts 3.
>>3297488Hey, I think you're talking about me hehI just love Terra x Ven, they're my favourite couple and it hurts how underappreciated this pair is... they're so perfect for each other!
>>3297495Stop coping, start acting Roxas-anon!It's obvious you regret what happened nine years ago, and that you still care about your Sora-friend. Sure, the past turned out bad, and they didn't manage to save you, but they tried. Don't you think you can try a little too?Well, this is supposing you've got a way to contact them. Go looking for their username and/or old deviantart. I've managed to find old friends from one dead site linking to another, so on and so forth.Send them a message telling the same story you told us, with the same simple question if they're enjoying KH3. Find them again and reignite your friendship. It's never going to be the same, but if anything you will get to give them some closure. They were right back then, and you should have listened. Even if Sora isn't interested in being friends again I bet they wouldn't mind hearing that... If anything you'll just reaffirm that you haven't forgotten your good times together! You remember them and treasure those memories!
Why is Roxas so perfect? He is cute, shy, but brave. Those are some of my favorite traits.Honestly I think Roxas is a better character than Sora. I prefer characters with more conflict and edge in them.
>>3297488>Terra/Ven discussion on /v/What did I miss?
>>3294522>why was AkuRoku so popular?well Axel cared about Roxas more than anyone, even though they didn't have many scenes together in KHII they were all focused on the deep connection they had and their story was pretty tragic>"I wanted to see Roxas. He...was the only one I liked...he made me feel...like I had a heart."on a superficial level of shipping appeal though - height difference, agegap, personality contrast
Any love for Isa and Lea here?
>>3299539I know that it seems like a nitpick compared to the rest of the flaws that KHIII had, but I really wish that Terra spoke to Riku again. Riku has gotten a pretty acceptable closure on this game fighting his past (both figuratively and literally) for the last time. And even if they teased us with him remembering his promise early on the game, it would have been wonderful if Terra told him a short ''I'm proud of you''. If a Final Mix edition releases, it should include a little more room for breath at the endgame, some more calm before the storms to fit more interactions without ''ruining the moment''.[spoiler]And optionally a place where I can take a selfie with the main characters.[/spoiler]
>>3299539Terra is such a cute dad :3
Small picdump bump for more Soriku
Just got the 1.5 +2.5 for 35 on ebay, what kinda playtime am I looking at? Ps4 if it matters.
>>3300376~160 hours depending on how much of the side stuff you want to do358/2 days and re:coded are just cinematics so they only take a couple hours to watch
>>3300376If just playing 1 and 2 on them, 40ish for 1, and 25ish for 2 if you're just doing main story and no side stuff.Chain of memories is 20-40 depending on luck of cards (and really not worth it) Birth By Sleep is 30ish since there are 3 characters to play throughDream Drop Distance is 20-30ish and actually has different worlds
Xigbar best husbando
I love Akusai.
>>3291994>Young Yen-SidHuh, never thought of that
>>3292016God i wish...
I've started playing the 1.5+2.5 remix, and holy hell was the game always this hard and tedious? Does Kh2 ever improve on this? It's wayy clunkier than I remembered.
>>3303112I know, Treasure Planet is my favorite Disney movie. Maybe since PotC is finished (unless they decide to go further with the 4th and 5th movies as plots) they can replace it with Treasure Planet.
>>3304397I feel you bro!
>>3304397KKH1did not age well and yes, KH2 greatly improves on it gameplay wise. There's a reason KH2 Final Mix is considered the best, even to this day.
>>3306246Vanitas and Roxas? ...I could get behind that. I mostly see him drawn with Ventus (and the rare Terra or Aqua, sometimes Sora) while Roxas is a tad more versatile (Sora, Axel, Riku, Xion, Namine, etc..) It's nice to see something different.
I'm sort of gonna miss Pirates. I would have loved if they had touched on the notion from KH2 of Jack trying to take and wield the Keyblade in KH3.
Might I request some more Terra?
>>3311755might I agree with this suggestion?
>>3292011This picture is great, source?
Terra is the best dad
