I keep forgetting the epilogue, lol.
It would have to be as long as the ending though and really go with a character-focused main premise to salvage some of the most grating rushed parts though.
So I'll ask to be excused for being skeptical.
Yea, this indicates at least a few spoken lines. NaminÃ© and her memory powers could be the first link to follow in order to find Sora again anyways. Maybe Roxas and Ven will also play a role with their own connections to Sora which have been woefully ignored in all I've seen so far in KH III. The scene where Sora wakes Ven is nice and they do acknowledge each other, but it too feels somewhat rushed and short.
Y'know, I actually find the scene of Ansem the Wise and Ienzo restoring NaminÃ© to be quite cute and heartwarming and I'd like to believe the first thing she hears is Ansem apologizing to her for his awful treatment, but that scene should have happened two thirds into the game, not during the damn ending.
Not to mention Roxas' restoration and him facing Ansem should have been shown too.
Roxas gets a badass entrance and some cool words combined with being a super effective party member for one fight, but that's all there is.
Afterwards, he joins the BBS Trio, Lea and Xion in being background eye candy.
The way how they seem to just work down a checklist to deal with each individual character and their problems and arcs so far is especially jarring when you do care about most of these characters.
Seeing parts of the ending and how beautiful and rewarding some of these scenes feel gets a sour aftertaste when you realize for yourself that you personally see those scenes as what they are solely from prior buildup in the whole series and scarcely anything done by KH III itself.
It also seems that Nomura still can't let go of several of the side characters as at least Marluxia, Larxene and Luxord seem to be set to appear again, Isa is already proven.
Vanitas is a weird issue right now as at least to me his ultimate fate hangs in the air, same goes for Xigbar/Braig.
There are so far six characters I can seriously assume we've seen the last of and those are
- Master Xehanort
- Ansem SoD
- Young Xehanort
- Riku Replica
Not sure whether you see another spoiler about:
Demyx is apparently treated as being in a similar situation with Luxord, Marluxia, and Larxene. Albeit, Marluxia may have a slightly higher standing above the others. If you follow
