Am hoping the finisher involves combining the two into a double sided spear and slashing at the opponent

So this update includes all of the new things added to the main game? So if we want to replay the game before remind, we can start now once this update drops?

Is there any mention as to when exactly the Free Update is supposed to launch?
Square Enix North America only says "before Re Mind," which for them is 12am EST on the 23rd. I'm hoping it's before Re Mind launches in New Zealand, otherwise a lot of places will have to wait because nothing works without the patch.

Looks good! Is that Young Xehanort? I mean I figured he'd be a boss. Glad to see it confirmed, yay!

I figured both Sora and Roxas can still dual wield because their hearts are still connected despite being separated.
We can try to handwave it however we want, but it still contradicts the established lore. Besides, Sora and Roxas' second Keyblade came from housing Ventus' heart, not eachother's. Up until KH3, Roxas never even had a Keyblade of his own to begin with, and we all know none of that was explained either, lol.

Anyway, I'm not trying hark on it too much. Just felt like it was funny to see them sacrificing lore for spectacle.. again.

This is really getting my hopes up for a rewrite of the keyblade graveyard. Anyway I'm probably gonna steer clear of these forums for a week or so so I don't get spoiled now that stuffs starting to drop... so... See you all in about a week!

Perhaps the memory of Ventus' heart being a part of Sora's is still enough to allow Sora to share that power - Sora's all about sharing.

Heh... Bye bye lore. Thought you needed two hearts to pull this off, but I guess we're saying it's ok now, right? 😜 Gotta love the power of fan service, lol.
BOI HALF THE LORE INTRODUCED TO US ALREADY WENT BYE-BYE IN FAVOR OF FANSERVICE!
