I hope that Amazon didn't make this up based on what SE Germany posted, because the information they have are often..............let's just say vague.
80 minutes doesn't sound bad.

If they lied, I'll just send a...kind email to SE Germany and Amazon c:

80 minutes or a 1 hour and 30 minutes. I mean this is more movie than Days and Re Coded movies and those were the cutscenes from the games
There are 60 minutes in an hour so 1h 20m.

Well, the amazon description does state that it's "the first time" players will be able to play as Aqua, so I'd take it with a grain of salt honestly.

I took it as it meaning the first time as the main star, but I'm going to heed your warning! It is something that is easily corrected in the event it is wrong.

We knew it was over an hour but they never gave a definitive runtime.

Re: Kingdom Hearts ? Back Cover is 80 minutes long!

Now this makes me really happy:)

I was kind of worried when they said Back Cover was only an hour long at first. I felt like that was too short to tell the entire story of the Keyblade War and to tell it well.

But eighty minutes is close to the length of a Disney movie, so I have a lot of faith and can see it now.

And furthermore, an hour and twenty minutes is probably a good length to get things done without being overbearing with it (like the Days and Coded movies can be).

A good decision all around, I think. So God bless you for making it, Square Enix!

Yeah, sadly it really says people "take the roll of keyblade wielder Aqua for the first time".
I mean maybe it's only that part of information that's a little off. I guess there's a possibility that the rest is on point.

I'm also amazed how the article says that there's new stuff and new gameplay features in 3D. I mean, they don't say it like "there'll be three new dream eaters" or so. It sounds pretty rad, like there's actually quite some good new stuff in the game.

Well, we've yet to see what they've done to Flick Rush 8D

But I get you. It's just fluff to sell the product anyways.

Ohh wow sounds very exciting! 80 minutes is a lot longer than the previous two HD footage of Days/Re:coded.

Re: Kingdom Hearts ? Back Cover is 80 minutes long!

I don't need Back Cover to be LotR or BvS length, but doesn't an hour and twenty minutes seem pretty... I dunno, whelming? Days as a movie was trash because it's not a movie, and Re:coded was better but still suffered from the same things that plagued the Days film.

I mean, I just dunno if I can believe an hour and twenty minutes is enough time for them to develop all these characters AND do the plot AND add new things AND have whatever mindfuckery ending that gets thrown in to connect it to 0.2 and KH3.

That being said... I'm still excited as diddly.

I love that you said "whelmed" Lonbilly. Taking lessons from Robin, are you?:)

And I just realized this post is completely off topic. Ignore me.

...So how about that 80 minutes of Back Cover, huh? Skuld better be in it, that's all I have to say!:D

New gameplay features no doubt refer to the touch pad being used to play with Dream Eaters, and Reality Shift now being activated by the buttons.

Yeah, but they're also stating "Zusatzinhalte" (additional content)...but that might even be just some new dream eaters, I guess.
