    Im so excited the wait is almost over. I hope the next KH game will be on the big screen!

    2 more weeks! 2 more weeks! I cannot WAIT for this! Finally back to Sora, Riku, and the mainline KH story (although BBS was awesome too)! Just a little bit longer!

    • FaithlessMr

      I’ll let you know how good it actually is in a couple of days :3

          Ahah, don’t worry, I hate spoilers myself so I’d never do such a thing ;)

    The only game I find interest for on the 3DS.

  • The Kingdom Hearts Collector Edition bundle for North America looks really cool! Don’t have a 3DS though, the release date is too close to The Last Story’s anyway. I don’t think that 2 weeks gives you enough time to play a game, well, sometimes it does.

      Trust me when I say that Kingdom Hearts will be a LOT better than the Last Story. I had high hopes when I saw Sakaguchi and Uematsu’s name on the team, but that game had EXTREMELY slow pacing and was the definition of just a passable/decent enough RPG. I liked the battle system, but the story, plot, and pacing was just God awful. I mean it was an ok game, but considering this is a mainline Kingdom Hearts title I can guarantee you with 100% certainty, that KH is the better game.

      Dont know how well you will take the advice of a guy sportin a Kingdom Hearts avatar, but I am telling you the truth, at least in my opinion. The Last Story is nowhere near the Gooch’s best work, it falls extremely into the mediocre. But considering you dont have a 3DS, The Last Story is a decent enough game though.

      • The only Kingdom Hearts game that I have ever played is 365/2 days (I think that’s what it’s called), the DS game with Roxas as the main character. It was AWFUL! I will never again play another Kingdom Hearts game again! Except for this one (if I get a 3DS.) I guess that I am interested in it because the heroine of The World Ends With You is in it, and she is voiced by a really good VA. I also think that it looks cool because characters from The World Ends With You are in it, those are about the only reasons why I am interested in Dream Drop Distance. I am thinking of giving Kingdom Hearts games one more chance to redeem themselves.

          You picked a VERY bad game to base your opinion of the KH series on. Days has the worst pacing, the worst battle system, the most lackluster story (I mean, what little story there is) of all the Kingdom Hearts games. Its a side game that has little bearing on the main series and has little of the charm that the main series
          KHBBS for PSP
          KH1- PS2
          KHReCOM- PS2/GBA
          KH2- PS2
          KH3D- 3DS
          has. Its actually my least favorite game in the series, and while I’ve completed every other game in the series multiple times, I cant bring myself to replay Days. I mean KHCoded for the DS was also pointless to the main plot, but at least it had fun gameplay (basically BBS gameplay on DS).

          I’m a HUGE KH fan, as you can probably tell from my avatar, but even I dont care much for Days. People say its written well, I wont disagree with that, but it means nothing if the story/gameplay is crap and character development barring Roxas and MAYBE Xion is little to nothing.

          Alls I’m saying is give the series another go, dont base the series on one of the worst games in the series, which really doesnt even have any bearing on the main story. Play KH1, 2, BBS, or 3D and you’ll wander how you missed out on such an amazing series, and I’m sure you will want more:P

          • I very much agree. Give the series another chance.

          • I will take what you said into consideration, can’t make any promises though.

              Your decision, though I still think you’re missing out if you dont give a “real” entry a try.
