It’s not officially confirmed, but these people in the OP have been right about a bunch of scoops before. So treat it as not confirmed but likely, I guess.So is this confirmed or not!? I'm having all my friends and family that know I love KH sending me these "confirmations", but I'm like I don't think it's true! UGH.
Very well said.Yes, we all knock on Nomura now. But I think we also can admit we love his style even if we can admit that it is not that great.
What he needs are the right people to keep him in check.
I'm all for creative liberty, but let's be real, Nomura is like George Lucas, he has amazing ideas but does not execute them all that well. The reason the original trilogy of Star Wars was so good is that Lucas had people telling him what would work and what wouldn't.
The prequel trilogy, on the other hand, was all Lucas and that speaks for itself.
I am the kind of guy who will sit there and internally scream at the horrible story choices he makes and at the same time marvel at them while in a state of rapture. Kingdom Hearts is the abyss and I've stared into it too long.
And it will star TV Sora, who is identical to Sora but a different being like Data Sora.An episodic format with characters going through Disney worlds would be my ideal cartoon. But if anything I suspect it might be a retelling of KH1 considering Nomura loves retelling that story.
The dialogue and writing is consistent enough between Days all the way to KH3 despite the various scenario writers like Daisuke Watababe, Tomoco Kanemaki, and Masaru Oka working on the games to show that Nomura‘s probably writing the bulk of the main character dialogue.
Didn't know Japan doesn't have it yet.Disney Plus launches in Japan on June 11th. Originally this was going to be the last day of E3 2020. Just an interesting coincidence, I'm sure, but it reminds me that under different circumstances, we would be entering event season and there may be projects and other news planned to be announced around this time.
Food for thought!
[parsehtml]<p>Rumors of a Disney Plus series based on <em>Kingdom Hearts</em> have been circulating the internet for a few weeks now.
I'm still very hesitant about this no matter what I hear. Kingdom Hearts, in my mind, just cannot work as a TV series, at least not a good one. Most KH fans tend to agree that the story and the writing are among the weaker elements of the series, especially when you consider that 70-80% of the grand narrative is just watered-down retellings of already popular Disney films with original characters shoehorned in.
It could feasibly work as something intended for people who are already fans of the series, if they make it a story that's canon and relevant to the games. Otherwise, if the conceit is just to have an unconnected episodic series of Sora, Donald, and Goofy travelling to a new Disney world every episode, then I just don't see how it could realistically work.
And frankly, I'm not enthusiastic about the show's potential regarding the writing, either. I mean, we all know Nomura ain't no writer. If we take X Back Cover as an example of what we might see with KH translated to a TV medium, then frankly I'm not interested. Dialogue in the KH series blows, I hate to say it but it's true.
So does this mean Kingdom Hearts is expected to become a lot more popular? If so, does that mean we will get new content and games out much faster as they'll have a lot more at stake a lot more to appease and faster deadlines? Also does this mean KH4 game quality will go down due to rushing?[/parsehtml]
