Everything We Know About KINGDOM HEARTS Melody of Memory

For some of our older members, you may remember when @Audo used to make these massive mega-threads with everything we knew about a game or mysterious character prior to the newest game's release. Larger forums (i.e. ResetERA) make massive Official Topic (OT) threads as places to house information and discussion for their users. I thought it would be beneficial bring that concept back for KINGDOM HEARTS Melody of Memory and collate all of the information we know so far about the game into its own mega-thread. I'm not as eloquent, thorough, or timely as many people who develop these types of threads, but we are in quarantine for an unknown amount of time and when I'm not teleworking/physically at work or at my part-time job, I'm usually laying on the floor of my apartment contemplating the nature of KINGDOM HEARTS with my last remaining brain cell. Might as well do something useful with it. (Also, I promise future threads of this nature won't have my awful, bland humor injected in the introductions)

Feel free to use this thread as a general discussion thread for random things that come to mind but might not feel important enough to make a new thread out of or a place to dump new content if I somehow forget to update the thread.

This thread is a Work In Progress.
