None really. This person just wants the series to be how he wants it to be, regardless of how implausible his plans are. It's actually quite selfish.
If I may ask, how and why is this implausible? If more people supported this, this could very well turn out like how they brought Spider-Man into the MCU, as the Andrew movies actually did pretty well, but because of enough fans giving it support, they were able to make it so that Spider-Man made it into the MCU, because they knew that it would be beneficial and had a lot Of potential to be even better than what they already had; the same again can be said here

We only have to watch them as cut scenes, and they’re supposed to be GAMES......And we’re still getting a new mobile game, so again this trend is clearly not really going away……
Every franchise in existence does shitty predatory mobile/f2p games now. Is it terrible? Yes. Is it unique to Kingdom Hearts in any way? No. Is it up to Nomura or any of the creatives in the slightest? Also no. If KH was rebooted to make more money, would it stop having mobile games? Oh my god no! It would put EVEN MORE focus on them!!!! That's how this industry works!

If we had a reboot that truly emphasized overall quality and experience around the lines of Grandtheft auto, uncharted,
I think those games suck shit and I'd rather play Kingdom Hearts actually

Harry Potter
Come on, man.

Imma say this once

GTA5 def ain't a "quality" game anymore in my eyes lol

Its revenue comes mainly from GTA Online nowadays and the game itself is a "Do dumb shit" simulator now. Especially on PC where it's "Do r e a l l y dumb shit".

Reboot guy even disregarded the content[which is also cuz M rating duh]of the game in his second pitch. Basically focusing only on how much money it made.

They actually do have more control over what games go on different systems. They were actually approached to do a kingdom hearts game on the Vita, but Nomoura turned it down. And it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t have the games at least ALSO be on consoles (playable as GAMES), eh?

Whether you like those other games or not, those games are objectively more successful not only financially, but are also more well known then Kingdom Hearts (And more than potentially ever will be). Please ask literally anyone you know outside of the fandom about both kingdom hearts and all of those games I just mentioned, and compare how many actually know about those other games compared to kingdom hearts?

And Jesus Christ! This anti Harry Potter has got to stop! First of all, to quote you, I would rather watch, read, play or do anything with Harry Potter then most things of kingdom hearts, especially the way that it is now, and again I’m only using (a truly accurate) example of how to do this kind of thing, as more than arguably more people agree with me that the earlier Harry Potter games captured the magic even more than both the movies in the original books, Which if done right, you could even say that about kingdom hearts compared to the original Disney movies, But cannot the way that it is now. Please grow up, don’t let this foolish nonsense with it bother you so much. How would you like it if this was kingdom hearts or anything else you liked? How would you like it if someone in her family got reprimanded like this and you yourself are punishing could be successful because you’re connected to and created by them?

Bias bias bias! It doesn’t matter how YOU feel about GTA5!It also doesn’t overall matter how much money it’s making RIGHT NOW!Back right after it first came out, it broke records for being the highest or if not one of the highest grossing things in entertainment, making three times more than kingdom hearts made its entire lifetime, and it was quite a bit of time before its highest peak when KHIII Came out six years later in 2019.If kingdom hearts is truly as beloved as this site and others think it is, then why didn’t you come anywhere near as close to this level of success, including when KH III came out Where it still didn’t even come as close as that one GTA game, EH?

And that’s the thing! A game that is rated M for mature made like three times more than an entire franchise in for everyone made in its entire lifetime! Do not think that’s a little bit strange that a game that has a much much broader audience in its entire franchise of nearly 20 games, with devoted fan sites like this can’t even make barely half of what one M rated game made? Just please think about that

So that way this kind of thing doesn’t Continue to happen. Yes, they have largely stopped doing that and Have (mostly) ported all of the games under one roof, however keep in mind that a good majority of them we still can’t properly play: days, recoded, and the Union Cross and dark road games. We only have to watch them as cut scenes, and they’re supposed to be GAMES......And we’re still getting a new mobile game, so again this trend is clearly not really going away…… If we had a reboot that truly emphasized overall quality and experience around the lines of Grandtheft auto, uncharted, Nintendo’s recent games etc this kind of thing would not be happening. Would you not rather have literally EVERY Single game released on literally literally EVERY single Console At the same time, with the kind of quality of the games I mentioned above, which has a be even more engaging and even more enrich than it already is?
We already have those. We call those collections. The most recent being the All-in-one. That’s why I’m waiting for a port of the mobile games to be remastered into a collection, even as a movie. Do I wish some of those games-turned-films stayed as games? Hell yes. Doesn’t mean I want a reboot from god-knows-where.

We get it, you want to support your friend, but this is clearly an exercise in futility. Very few of the existing fans have ever asked for a reboot of an IP, that yes, still has its problems, one of them being Nomura himself and his unbridled creativity (anyone remember when he wanted to turn Versus into a musical after watching Les Miserables?), but maybe way down in the line, like, after at least three complete arcs come to pass, it'll be an appealing idea, especially as the newer generation of gamers lose interest in the RPG genre.

But not right now, and never to someone who Nomura hasn't designated as his successor. Nobody wants a Goro Miyazaki redux.

Your question could also be asked about the live action remakes which have rebooted all of Disney’s most successful animated movies and therefore their franchises…… And for some, they weren’t exactly finished when they came out, as the lion guard was still on when the live action lion king came out, Moana may very well be getting a live action remake before it’s Disney+ series etc.……
Dude those are...adaptations of adaptations, some being profitable, most being not quite bombs but certainly nothing worth rewatching, but that's irrelevant. They're just adaptations of adaptations. The originals are locked in a book in a French or German museum/archive, and even those are adaptations themselves of local folklore.

Strangely enough, the fairy tales books' last story is always a boy with a golden key. It's the only fairytale in all the famous books not adapted...anywhere, really. Sort of makes you wonder... However, that's beside the point. It's irrelevant in context of a hypothetical reboot, unless it's, like, a live action/Disney XD adaptation.
And as for the population of worlds, wow does it indeed not feel like there’s literally ANYONE let alone ANYTHING in them, to the point where it’s beyond awkwardly embarrassing when the grand Duke in birth by sleep says “the guests were really starting to enjoy themselves“. What guests?! There’s literally no one there!
The engine was simply incapable of it back then. They had to recolour some of the Destiny Islands and Traverse Town NPCs to Agrabah way back in KH1 because technology simply wasn't that advanced back then. Hell, that crowd bowing to Mulan are slimmed down sticks with armour colourations.
Well, frankly why wouldn’t you want this? Would you not want the world to be more populated and actually feel like there’s things in them to actually feel like you’re actually saving the world instead of just going through the motions, with her actually being steaks and the feeling of its plausibly and realistically happening? The feeling of actually having more of the characters there and being not only ridden but portrayed by the original actors or a very convincing sound like which a lot of them currently do not have? The world themselves not feeling like mere levels it actually like we’re exploring the big grand landscape that they are presented as in the movies and other media? Sure, kingdom hearts III Did incorporate a lot of this, but even then it still feels limited, and they still didn’t allow us to truly engage with things like in Arendelle and kingdom of corona, Which could’ve felt a lot more satisfying and not looked down upon like they already are if they weren’t as limited. And I’ll tell you, in kingdom hearts IV with return of the Jedi and or whatever is going to be featured, it’s more than definitely only going to be Endor, With no Jabba the Hutt, Maybe even no space battle with the death star, And or various other limitations that you can possibly think of, so then what’s the point of featuring it in the first place?
What?
Well, that I’ve been saying to people for years about the Eragon and Percy Jackson movies, As I quite love both of those movies (and I have read the books, more than once actually :) As they are the works that already exists, as are the Disney movies that kingdom hearts is adaptating, So what’s the difference here regardless of any overall success? Same of the Harry Potter movies that are being rebooted into an HBO series when we still don’t have the fantastic beasts movies fully concluded, or cursed child/something around those lines that truly finishes Harry’s story like JK herself says it does?
Again, those are adaptations. They're irrelevant in the context of the work because the source material is complete and untouched, and it will remain complete and untouched, barring crazy TERF shite. HP and JKR are irrelevant.

It's called a demographic. Some gamers overlap their preferred genres, and some do not. They like Valorant, or GTA, or western RPGs, or NBA exclusively and there's nothing wrong with that. Hell, we even have Final Fantasy diehards condemning Kingdom Hearts for a plethora of reasons, like "being too childish", etc.

Nomura does have some level of control over whether to make a game or not, yes. What you don't understand is that predatory gacha shit is not a game, it's a pre-designed algorithm made to abuse people out of their money, and Square Enix is 100% going to do that with any franchise that's big enough, and nobody can stop them from doing it. They did it with FF, DQ, Saga and Mana several times over, each. And counting. So yeah, they're gonna do it with KH, too. Nomura's involvement is writing some scripts that he sends to a team of, on UX/DR, literally two animators. And in an industry without a handheld market, Nomura's gonna take what opportunities he can get to tell side stories, because there aren't any others now.

Dude, you're trying to convince Kingdom Hearts fans that this is a good idea, not Disney's board of directors. Why the fuck would any of us care that something else is more popular and profitable? Why would anyone want something they like to be something they don't like instead???? I play Kingdom Hearts because I like Kingdom Hearts, not because I'm a fucking producer hoping to secure a bigger paycheck for Square's crypto-ass CEOs. I seriously cannot even begin to address how troubling this sentiment is. Do you actually even play video games????

And Jesus Christ! This anti Harry Potter has got to stop!

Your first point indicates why there needs to be a reboot. How can you settle for not actually playing a GAME, Which is meant to be played? What if they decided to not make a more substantial game like birth by sleep or dream drop distance non-playable in the collections? What do you think of that? This is one of many examples why the series is a mess and disorganized to say the least, doesn’t it remind you of the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movies?

May I also ask you this: did anyone actually ask for those live action Disney remakes? Can you not think of anything else that happened that “no one really asked for“? You can literally say that about anything in life.

And what do you not get about this: Kingdom hearts is an adaptation of the original Disney movies, that’s the main overall focus and draw of the series. Yes, it does have a lot of its own individual lore outside of the Disney stuff.But the big thing is, seeing as Disney truly owns not only their own properties, but the original kingdom hearts properties themselves, then how were the franchise work without Disney, even if they Don’t integrate the original Disney properties themselves? After all, Disney themselves were pushing sora to be in smash.

And also, it is actually very very very ignorant for you to call Harry Potter “irrelevant”. Because it is a fact That literally 10 times more people will know let alone more than likely consume Harry Potter then kingdom hearts. It’s also a fact like I stated, that those earlier Harry Potter games including some of them that were on portable systems did in fact have way more population within their worlds, and again had maybe a fraction or less of the amount of development time that all of these kingdom hearts games had. So again, I would not call it irrelevant, Heck, unless kingdom hearts does something around the lines of what is proposed here, it will always be far more relevant than Harry Potter no matter what no matter how otherwise it may seem.

With all that’s been stated here, much like when they brought Spider-Man into the MCU and had to reboot him yet again, do not think that it’s overall worth it to redo the kingdom hearts series from the ground up and have it be way more expensive especially more than ever with today’s technology is being able to do all the things that are proposed here? And with that having to be far more beloved, well-known and successful then Harry Potter and or any other phenomenon, regardless of whether it’s a game or not?

The thing is, If more and more people get on board with this, then it will make enough noise for the companies involved to at least consider. Like I stated, look what happened with Spider-Man; would they really have brought Spider-Man into the MCU if enough people didn’t express their desire to have that happen? What about the Snyder cut of justice league? What about the fact that it seems more than an interesting coincidence that after he started this project here that they started applying some of his ideas to the remixes and later games; they added on more atmospheric sounds to the 2.5 version of birth by sleep, and KHIII Did overall apply a lot of what’s being proposed here. But that doesn’t mean that they can just continue like this, as its still not On the level that it can be. I will say though that if previous games had applied at the same kind of thing that KHIII Did right from the beginning, Then even with KHIII being exact same as it is, then it very well could’ve made at least as much as GTA5 And therefore be overall successful and satisfactory. But it’s also not just those elements, it’s also the overall structure and convoluted nature and therefore organization of the series, Which if it had been planned out like Harry Potter, would not have any of these issues, hence another reason why Harry Potter is still relevant and well known, why therefore kingdom hearts will never ever reach those levels the way that it is regardless of what you are even a minority may think of it no matter what no matter how otherwise it may seem

Ok, sounds like what I should do to get what I want is to try and censor these ideas, because I would never want that to happen because I like these ideas less than I like Kingdom Hearts. Is this getting through to you yet?

So, you wouldn’t want the kingdom hearts games to have much bigger and more explorable worlds, much more characters from the movies, and with that actually being played by their original actors and or much better impersonators, the original music composers coming backTo create new music for the games, The games not having any lame moments like how they reveal that Mulan is not a man, or no guests at the Cinderella ball, not having many characters acting like idiots and out of place for no reason, having a much better organized and less retconned and convoluted for convoluted sake plot?

And with all of this, having something that would make a whole heck of a lot of money for Disney, being right up there or even better than these very successful games, especially since this is a game series it’s aimed for literally everyone as opposed to most of those mention that are only rated M?

Do you think all of this is a bad idea? You’d still rather have things be the way they are?

So, I’m evil for wanting something that I truly love to truly be the best that it can truly be? I’m evil for wanting something to be more true to what it truly is as it’s shown that it can, and which other things that were released around the same time showed that they could (with less resources no less)? I’m an evil person for Stating the facts about how things work and therefore how they could be beneficial for everyone involved?

And for the record, I’m someone who knows for a fact that our species desperately needs to move on from money. And yet, here I am like I’ve said stating the facts but that’s just how things work. Why can’t it be a win-win? Disney gets to make an unprecedented amount of money, a lot more than they would be making with a lot of their movies, and we are fans get a truly mind blowing UnPresidented experience let alone from something that a lot of us already love? What can’t you see about that?

Arrogance is standing on a soapbox shouting at people who clearly don't want to hear it.

Arrogance is also discarding the opinions of others in a discourse and rebuking them with a logical fallacy technique. You say this:
And also, it is actually very very very ignorant for you to call Harry Potter “irrelevant”
And can't even look in the mirror minutes before when you accuse someone else of this:
Bias bias bias! It doesn’t matter how YOU feel about GTA5!
That is the very definition of arrogance, and hubris.

You need to seriously calm down.

Let's get it down to the bottom-line, shall we?

We aren't interested at this time, and in the foreseeable future.

We simply don't care for it, and you're barking up at the wrong tree.

If you really want to find out how many actually do care, set up a poll. When someone else says yes, then gather those people up and talk to them. Otherwise, this isn't a discourse, this is just cold-call selling with a shoe wedged on the door.

Read what I said above, and please check out what the kingdom hearts reboot is saying. Your question could also be asked about the live action remakes which have rebooted all of Disney’s most successful animated movies and therefore their franchises…… And for some, they weren’t exactly finished when they came out, as the lion guard was still on when the live action lion king came out, Moana may very well be getting a live action remake before it’s Disney+ series etc.……
Because live-action makes money. Lots of money. As does KH with how it currently is, considering KH3’s sales.

Edit: I also feel like this is going to go in circles, because I’m vividly reminded of another user who repeated arguments/points in a similar manner to this person over Resident Evil. This might just lead to the thread getting closed.

Once again, you are coming off as merely being bias. You may not be interested, but can you not at least unbiassedly see why we may think this way? Same with how you feel about Harry Potter which again also need to stop. Regardless of what you even think of that, you cannot ignore the statistical facts but it has. And with that, is a truly worth blaming it when it itself didn’t do anything but her? It’s not bias to call you wrong for calling Harry Potter irrelevant, Because, and as a true hard-core kingdom hearts fan, the way the franchise is now regardless of its popularity will always truly be more irrelevant than Harry Potter; if it had been like what is proposed here, it very well could’ve blown it out of the water and then you might actually be right.
Because live-action makes money. Lots of money. As does KH with how it currently is, considering KH3’s sales.

Edit: I also feel like this is going to go in circles, because I’m vividly reminded of another user who repeated arguments/points in a similar manner to this person over Resident Evil. This might just lead to the thread getting closed.
The thing is, can you not see the potential in kingdom hearts being rebooted like this making a lot more money than it already is, let alone even more than the live action remakes? Just relying on KHIII And any future games is not enough. They’re more likely going to go down because people are getting tired of this kind of thing like other people have suggested on this thread; I’ve seen quite a lot of people were in fact disappointed with KHIII, so what does that tell you?

Also if the live action remakes do indeed “make lots and lots of money”, then why did live action little mermaid struggle? Why did live action Dumbo bomb? Why about the sequels despite being much better to the live action remakes like through the Looking Glass and mistress of evil also either bomb or not do as well? Why is Snow White getting a lot of negative backlash?


Much like with how kingdom hearts currently is, despite the fan base, People are starting to get tired of this kind of thing, because of all the frustrations and inconsistencies that it has. With the benefit of a reboot, things will be more planned out and organized from the beginning, and would continue to have more and more success again to an unpresidented amount That could make a lot more money than all the live action remake movies combined, right up there with GTA5 Etc. which KHIII Still didn’t even come close to, EH?

Why is Snow White getting a lot of negative backlash?
Beauty and the Beast made $1.266 billion. The Lion King made $1.663 billion. Aladdin made $1.054 billion. Cinderella made $542 million worldwide, which was already double/triple its budget. And while yes, The Little Mermaid made less than what was hoped, but you can attribute it to other big films being released at the time, and the abundance of racism towards the main lead which was never justifiable. Most of Snow White’s backlash is towards the lead being Latina. You can bring up remakes that were financially less profitable, but it still doesn’t change the inherent fact that multiple of these films have made them a lot of money.

Now Kingdom Hearts as a franchise is over 20 years old. It was popular in the 2000s, and it’s true that popularity has died down quite a bit, but Kingdom Hearts III is the best-selling title of the franchise to my knowledge. It’s clear that there is still an interest in this franchise, so there’s no real point in rebooting it. Starting a brand new arc/saga would make sense and could possibly generate new interest since the previous one is long concluded, which is what the series is actively doing.

But with all of this said, when it comes to Disney/Square? They aren’t going to reboot one of their most profitable video game franchises just because a fan is unhappy with how it currently is. Make videos and rants about how you’d like the series to be moving forward, but pushing for something extremely unlikely and insulting anyone who disagrees with you in the process isn’t going to do you any favors.

Beauty and the Beast made $1.266 billion. The Lion King made $1.663 billion. Aladdin made $1.054 billion. Cinderella made $542 million worldwide, which was already double/triple its budget.

But like I said, the Andrew Garfield Spider-Mans,Despite going down a bit, were still overall quite popular financially and even in other ways, And they still rebooted Spider-Man yet again because they knew they would make a lot more money by having it in the MCU and having it truly more substantially valuable than it would’ve been before. It’s the same principal here, if Disney can see through fan support but the series would make a whole heck of a lot more money for them with what’s being proposed here, then they would very well go for it. Disney is in so much of a slump lately that there’s a very good chance they’re gonna be sold, so they would wanna find a way to make as much money as possible, and this definitely is a very strong potential way, can you not see that? Can we not agree the gaming is overall more popular than movies at least financially? And therefore would truly benefit and give Disney themselves a lot of money on par with what their theme parks do, which is supposedly what they do focus more their money on, not to mention recent reports giving the parks about 60 billion, So therefore the same kind of thing could happen with their gaming if they see this potential that they have and what is it statistics with GTA and other franchises have done insanely monumentally well.Like I said, they already have taken these kind of steps towards everything from 2.5 Hd Remix onwards, So that alone proves that the do/can listen to this kind of thing no matter what no matter how otherwise it may seem

It’s Disney after all, the most iconic company and Brand in the world, and if they do at least something around the lines of what people post here, it again could lead to something phenomenally well that’ll benefit everybody and have them be extremely happy in the end no matter what no matter how otherwise it may seem
