One of the most requested additions for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX in the lead up to it's Japanese release was the addition of capes to the armour. The capes, which were originally meant to be in the original PSP game, were removed and it seemed all hope was lost to ever see the capes in action.

 

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, the capes are absent once more for the majority of the game. That is, until the final moments of Terra's story.

 

Revealed in a flounce of style at the end of Terra's story, the development team put the cape on the armour to bridge the end of Birth by Sleep to the secret battle in Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix. No doubt some fans will be excited to see the cape make it's triumphant return, but some fans will be sad to learn the team didn't put the cape to more use.

It was honestly one of the most stylish reveals I've ever seen.

(Also I hope people who use this video source us because I did not stay up till 1:30 am to be ripped off)

Ok, the way the cape materializes all of a sudden is so random. Makes the capes on TAV seem non canon now :/

Re: Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep features Capes on the Armour!

Welp. That answers my question in the other thread. I was hoping the cape would appear upon the animation of the Lingering Will, but it sprouts after the fight... either way I suppose it raises more questions (that probably won't be answered), but that's okay.

I kindof dig it.

Re: Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep features Capes on the Armour!

Okay, seeing the cape just...sprout from the back looks kinda silly. XD
Though, now it makes it look like they all did have the capes to begin with, but just chose to not have them out. I'm cool with that.

It was always a concept trailer. Like Terra's eyes turning yellow and all that.

Having Terra playable while wearing the cape would be really tricky for the programmers. Making it appear at the end in a cutscene is much more manageable.

Lol maybe the capes only appear after facing massive hardship and overcoming it.

Re: Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep features Capes on the Armour!

lol overcoming it facing power? its not magical cape its only normal cape its funny that it came from his back all of the sudden
How the hell is it not a magical cape? The entire suit of armor is contained in a magic arm band and keeps you safe from the darkness...AND SPACE.

Lol, not to mention there's nothing physical inside the armour at that point.

Re: Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep features Capes on the Armour!

This may be hard to understand for someone who's never owned a magic cape before, but trust me. Magic *~*~*~*~
(You seem oddly passionate over this semi-sentient back-popping CLEARLY NOT NORMAL AT ALL cape)

Can't stop laughing at the Magical Cape Sprouting from Terra's back. I can't overcome this. :D
