Same.With Kairi front and center this gives me hope they'll make the Sora, Riku, Kairi fight that never happened in the Dark Seeker Saga. This will be better because now when Kairi stands with them it'll feel earned rather then it just being a requirement. So I'm hoping from here on out Kairi truly is treated like the tritagonist of Kingdom Hearts.
Thing is, KH2 was a game with a bunch of not-quite-party members, Herc, Mickey, Axel, assorted FF guys. If it didn't make sense to have Kairi as a party member, this would've been a viable Option B.Honestly I doubt Kairi would have stood a chance against Xemnas in KH2. Even with her latent PoH powers.
