I’m glad we’re getting the secret movie at the same time as Japan. I wonder if the Memory Arvhive will be added to Union Cross as well in the Road to KH3 section.

I’m also looking forward to see what they do with the 13-day countdown to release Nomura teased for the Japanese version.

Sweet. Considering I'll be getting the game Feb 4 at the earliest, this will be out and hopefully we'll know what the conditions are for the secret movie! Hopefully it's just trophies and there's plenty of easy ones to get. ^^

This is pretty great. I've updated the article with the Japanese dates so we can compare.

It's great they are holding off on sharing the secret ending until after the worldwide release. I hate being spoiled of the cool stuff because Japan gets the game first.

I'm glad for the secret movie being held off. Kind of wish the epilogue was too though. It's neat though how like every day there will be a new KH3 thing to enjoy. And I like how if you beat the game on release day, you get to sit with the ending for a bit before seeing the epilogue.

was kind of hoping the day one patch would've added in some extra features tho

Yeah, I'm sad they didn't decide to wait on that. Also with Japan getting the game a week ahead, they will likely have already unlocked the requirements for the secret ending so even though they are holding off, all of us in the west are at a disadvantage.

Great they already posted that, wanted a playable epilogue but that's fine, can't wait to see it.

. I'm hoping we get a glimpse of the new villain in the secret ending. As for the epilogue I'm curious that they will show that wont be covered during the credits. Perhaps a sort of celebration on Destiny Islands?

I kind of figured an epilogue would mostly center on the lives of the people who got saved and stuff and tied up any remaining loose ends to their stories that wouldn't have fit with the flow of the main story (such as maybe Roxas reuniting with HPO as an example)

That would be a nice tie-up, but the way Nomura said the epilogue is a major spoiler, I fear it may be more than this.

Would they hide other things the patch could do? Like opening a secret boss etc. Fear this is a dumb question.

Well whatever is in the epilogue I really hope it's not anything that ruins a possible happy ending for the characters. Like someone getting abducted or disappearing like Zack in BBS.

I mean, probably, lol. He does seem to think the only kind of spoilers are capital-p Plot. But to me an epilogue would mostly be focused on the characters and their stories and who survives and what their fates are (all things i'd consider spoilers) and stuff with the secret ending being the big Plot thing. But who knows, could be a bit of both. I guess in a way one could think of Where the Heart Goes as a type of epilogue for BBS and it kind of had a mix of plot stuff with character stuff.
