Whenever they decide to show it off again, hopefully it's closer to release so the speculation/anticipation cycle is shorter. As fun as it may be, I don't want another 2 years of thinking "I just want to play this game already".

I hope we see Quadratum with different weather than we did in the first trailer. I hope it’s not just that flat grey overcast the entire game. Don’t necessarily need a full blown weather cycle, but it would be nice if it changed at different points of the game.

Only thing I'm really interested in seeing at that early stage is some Disney properties, partly to get more of an idea how they might work in the game. For example, whether or not they'll all be live-action properties, if they're strictly set in Quadratum, etc. That kind of thing would be worth seeing. Maybe new outfits/designs for various characters, too.

I wanna see a base combo from Sora lol

We still rocking that overhead swing > stab > horizontal swing? Maybe add that forward flip strike that KH3 threw in? Or are we gonna get something a little fancier for the new saga? I'm not sure if I'd rather see them break tradition or hold to the familiar.

I guess it'd also be cool to see a totally non-standard combo string in a trailer before seeing the basic one. I think a lot of people were very unhappy with KH3's limited amount of combo-altering abilities, given how we were given heaps of really good ones in a free update. I can't imagine they'll forget the lesson they learned there. I'm hoping they can indicate to us early that base-Sora's combo game will be just as if not more important than transformations and special moves.

More so in KH3 and KH2, I felt like some of the Disney worlds slowed the pacing of the story and added in a bit too much filler. Obviously, you can't remove Disney from the franchise for obvious reasons, but with the exception of Mickey, Yensid, Donald, and Goofy, there isn't much the other characters from Disney add to the plot. Maybe Maleficent and Pete are exceptions too, but the Disney experience just kind of puts a halt to the plot and takes us through the plot of the movies while adding in bits and chunks from KH's campaign.

If they're going to use Disney worlds and characters, I feel Disney needs to have the Disney plots resolved while at the same time, make their stories more integral and organic to the plot. The basic formula in KH was ok, because it was essentially a pilot and the square combo was new, so it felt fresh, also it seemed though the villains were more looped in to the central plot. But, overall the formula got a bit stale.

I liked the princesses of heart concept which involved Kairi, but they hadn't really expanded on that as much as they could have. I also felt giving her a keyblade was excessive and pandering. I believe there are other ways to have made her important to the plot and the gameplay mechanics. I have similar issues with Axel getting a keyblade.

As far as gameplay, I feel it's a bit loose and not as grounded as it could be. While I do like the freedom to use a variety of magics and melee options and crowd control, it often feels like Sora flings all over the place. I'd want a more grounded Sora, with heavier hits and bit tighter to maneuver if that makes any sense. Granted, I think the way Sora interacts with a lot of the enemies influences how Sora plays. I like FFXVI's gameplay. Maybe make Sora kinda like that, but only slightly looser.

I also don't like all of the retcons and asspulls. I'll forgive them if the 'seeker of darkness' saga is truly complete and they found a way to develop a new self contained story that contains some semblance of continuity, but not a direct connection to the previous entries. I say that now because the seeker of darkness saga should be a learning experience. Take what was good as frameworks, but improve upon all the bad. Sora's character needs to be revamped (mainly his personality). The plot needs to jive and not rely on secondary sources not well conveyed in the plot.
