Also, it’s kinda poetic to have Riku meet the people Sora met and helped him a lot when he started his journey. The FF gang, then Merlin, then Fairy Godmother.

They would each have some sort of comforting or guiding words to set Riku on the right path.
Agreed. I always found it a bit odd and disappointing that the Fairy Godmother wasn't that involved in the series after KH1. She was part of the people helping Sora too, maybe not so much as the others but still. I know she appeared in BBS but that was mainly for the movie plot. We didn't even get to see her and Cinderella reunite after Hollow Bastion.

Good thing the Fairy Godmother was revealed just when some of us was certain Re:MIND would have zero Disney material

Don't think i'll ever be a fan in how the models look in unreal, 2D Disney chars especially. Sora/Aerith/Cid looks nice tho.
I think considering how detailed Sora is in places like PotC or the new render in the “abyss”, it’s clear the look is intentional.

I do think they could work to make it look better, though. WoFF captured the best evolution of the visual style of previous KH games more than KH3 ever has haha

I kind of love how Sora's just completely running off in the wrong direction in this screenshot.
Sora pls

These renders look great, excited to see these folks back. Can't wait to get VA confirmation on them though.

Yeah, WoFF visual style looks pretty nice.

I wish they managed to imitate the style of the e3 announcement CG trailer. Loved the look of it, seemed like a nice evolution of what a next gen kh title could look like. The 2.8 gummi ship scene had a similar shading look but for some reason they dropped it.

Maybe it was something they couldn't manage to do with current gen consoles but i hope it's something they try again with next gen.

Kinda like how they were looking for Aqua. I think it's the best course of action, seeing as how there's no better way to find someone who's heart is connected to literally everyone than by talking to the people he's most connected with.

Getting some flashbacks to when Sora, Hayner, Pence, and Olette were "looking for" Roxas early on in KH3. Which, naturally, didn't do them any good since Roxas hadn't come back into existence yet regardless, so... With that in mind, what good is running around and talking to random people (that probably don't even know Sora is dead) going to do to help bring Sora back? Riku and Co are more connected to him than anyone else, so by that same logic, shouldn't their combined efforts alone be enough to find/restore him? From a logistical standpoint, this strategy just doesn't make much sense to me. At least, not upfront.

All hearts and connected and Riku is tracing that connection in order to open up a portal to Sora.

What? Unless excluding Riku, Kairi, Donald, Goofy and arguably Mickey, Sora doesn't know like...half these guardians personally unlike the Restoration Committee and all his friends he met during his earlier adventures. They have the bigger connection to him since they actually know him and he knows them. Even though he has his connection to Roxas, they still hardly personally knew each other besides some memories they saw but that doesn't count as them "knowing each other". I'm sorry but your comment makes no sense to me whatsover.

This course of action Riku and the others are taking is sound. Riku talking to the people Sora's had strong connections to in the past is the best way to trace some steps to Sora especially when those people could provide them with a clue especially since those other guardians clearly couldn't do so since Riku mentioned they couldn't find a clue on their own.

With that said, back to being on hiatus thanks to work.

Curious... But wouldn't Riku's first instinct be to do what Sora did when he went "looking for" Kairi after she died? Riku does have the Power of Waking afterall, and is more than close enough to Sora to make such a dive, right? I guess it just seems like a pretty roundabout strategy to jump into when Sora only had to use the Power of Waking to chase after Kairi (to Riku's knowledge).

...... What a strange reply.

Sorry if Sora physically connecting to Ven's heart and sheltering it for years isn't a strong enough "connection" for you. Sorry if being the literal Nobody of Sora, who had not only housed some of the boy's memories at one point, but even shared all of his own with him in tern, doesn't count as "knowing him personally." Sorry if literally having power over Sora's memories and everyone connected to him (Namine) "makes no sense" to you. Nevermind Xion, who effectively spawned from Sora's memories and was molded by him during his sleep (as said by Xemnas), or Lea, who's known Sora since KH2 at the very least (though his heart would still recall the feelings from Re Chain).

I genuinely don't know what else to say this really. You're downplaying his relationship with these characters in order to justify this thought process, and it's just not working. Still, this wasn't meant to be a debate.
This course of action Riku and the others are taking is sound. Riku talking to the people Sora's had strong connections to in the past is the best way to trace some steps to Sora especially when those people could provide them with a clue especially since those other guardians clearly couldn't do so since Riku mentioned they couldn't find a clue on their own.
Trace steps? From what? Find clues.. to WHAT?? What exactly could the Restoration Committee, who again, likely didn't even know Sora was dead, possibly offer as a "clue" to his fate when Riku (who was there) can't? When Namine (apparently) can't?

What part about this course of action is so "sound"? Because you've failed to make the logistics clear to me, and failed to show me how my own own reasoning was flawed. I don't, and will never object to the FF characters being brought back into the story (obviously), but if it was for the purpose @Ballad of Caius suggested, then I find the reasoning to be pretty flimsy. If say, they had actual, tangible intel on Sora's current whereabouts, or tools to help assist in his return, then you'd have something. But what, truthfully, could these characters have to offer in terms of "clues" that say, Yen Sid, for example, couldn't?

No, because Riku understands that the Power of Waking should not be abused the way Sora did because he’ll just find himself in the abyss like Sora and what good will that do to save him? I don’t think it matters how close Riku is to Sora in this case. It’s likely why he’s seeking out Sora’s friends. If he is going to do it right, he needs to establish a connection to Sora by using the hearts of Sora’s friends.

What Sora did was not the right way to use the Power of Waking. Even YX admonishes him for the way he uses the ability. Hearts to worlds, not worlds to hearts.

What I imagine is that Riku will follow them trail and that will lead him to the “abyss” or wherever Sora ends up regardless, but without the side affect of him losing his power like Sora by using it wrong.

I like this. This totally makes sense, and is actually a very in-character thing for Riku to do. Even though he allowed Sora to act recklessly before, that doesn't mean he's going to be going the same way. Lol, it really is DDD all over again isn't it? Riku acting as Sora's guardian, while the other is trapped there by forces outside of his control. Only this time, I imagine Chirithy made him aware of what he was risking before he dove too far (which is what I imagine we're hearing in the trailer).

Actually.... Hang on a moment, didn't Chirithy re appear in the Realm of Light at the end of KH3? Unless there's more worldline insanity, couldn't it have simply told everyone outright what to do?

"May our heart be our guiding key."

I think this is how Riku will find Sora. I imagine he'll interact with hearts connected with him in order to nurture his connection with Sora, he'll go to the Realm of Darkness with Aqua, raise his Keyblade and it will open a gateway to the Abyss that resides between the Realm of Darkness and the Final World. I imagine this Abyss could be the Dusk Final World and that's how he'll end up in Shinjuku. Or they will end up in Shinjuku. We don't see Aqua in the Secret Ending, but perhaps she'll accompany Riku.

I’m hoping Aqua goes with Riku to Shinjuku. If she really says something about “the three of us” in the Japanese trailer, maybe she was talking about her, Riku, and Sora. If we get an extended secret ending this time like we usually do with Final Mixes, revealing Aqua is there too would be a nice development. I’d love to see her in the new art style.

Then maybe we could even get another game that focuses on the remaining heroes in the Realm of Light while the big three are off on their own adventure.

I'm really surprised KH3 didn't go that route in terms of visuals.

Why couldn't KH3 look like thiiiiiis?! ;A;
Wow! WoFF has beautiful visuals. Now that I have a Playstation 4 I want to play this game so much. I've always loved the style of WoFF.

They really wanted to make those individual strands of hair while still keeping it as a solid piece for whatever reason. It upsets me so much.

KH3 should have at least implemented the Yebis middleware that created the really nice smooth and sharp visuals of WoFF (if it was even feasible with UE4). The really nice distance blur in cutscenes and fixed areas, the pop of light, the sharp detail on close-range items.

ughh, guess it is time to replay it xD

oh my god yes! You should! It’s one of my favorite games of 2016 and I definitely recommend it. WoFF also does this thing where it knows the lore is ridiculous and it tells you straight up that it is being silly for the sake of being silly.
