Proud Oregonian!
Krexia has translated a more in-depth summary of episode three that The Light in Chaos wrote up for us. Enjoy!


The third chapter of "Kingdom Hearts Coded" has been released!

...and we finished it as quickly as possible! But... S Rank is impossible (laugh).

This time we get utterly lost, and the Heart Card Soldiers seriously try to kill us.

The King and friends, imprisoned in the last chapter, have to try to put Jiminy's Memo back together. They concentrate all their strength on repairing the memo. Around the same time, Sora finally arrives at Wonderland. There, a cry of "Help me!" accompanies the appearance of a girl called Alice. This is followed by the appearance of Heartless. After Sora defeats them, he asks the girl her name, and she says, "Don't you remember?" Does this mean he's lost some memories? Following the Cheshire Cat's direction, Sora runs around Wonderland searching for his memories of Alice.

From this point, all the maps you can reach from the Central Plaza turn into mazes, and there are maps where Heart Card Soldiers will return you to the map's entrance if they discover you.
- Riddle Garden (top left): Heart Card Soldiers are around the circumference or at the home position. (If the Heart Card Soldiers at the home position discover Sora, they'll chase him.) There are also Spade Card Soldiers here.
- Riddle Lane (top right): The Heart Card Soldiers basically chase after Sora. It's easy to get trapped, so beware their relentless pursuit.
- Rose Garden (bottom left): there are no Card Soldiers, but when you walk through each arch it will take you to a specific location. (Will explain the rules later.)
On top of this, within these maps there are the Lotus Forest, Tea Party Grounds, and Strange Room.

The memories you can discover are listed below. They're indicated with a glittering effect.
Alice: Will appear in the Central Plaza after you first talk to Alice.
White Rabbit: Riddle Lane, top right corner.
Heartless: Riddle Lane, top left corner. Not necessary to obtain.
Birthday: Investigate the pink poster across from the table and chair in the Tea Party Grounds.
Trial: Talk to the White Rabbit, who's hiding in the Tea Party Grounds, and tell him about the "pocket patch".
Strange Hole: Riddle Garden, middle on the left. Get past the three Heart Card Soldiers that are standing still to reach it.
Queen of Hearts: Riddle Garden, top right corner. Talk to the Spade Card Soldier and show tell him about the "white rose".
Cheshire Cat: Get on top of the table in the Strange Room and the Cheshire Cat will give it to you.
Cookie: On top of a tree in the top left of the Lotus Forest. Easy to reach if you enter from the Rose Garden. Not necessary to obtain.
Doorknob: Clear the Area Debug Mode after talking to the Doorknob in the Strange Room.
Red Rose: Investigate the red rosebush on the central block of the Rose Garden. Not necessary to obtain.
White Rose: Investigate the white rosebush on the centre-right block of the Rose Garden.
Looking Glass: Rose Garden, bottom left corner. Appears after you destroy the Bug. Not necessary to obtain.
Mad Hatter: On top of the lotus in the top right of the Lotus Forest. Use the mushrooms to climb onto the lotus in the top left, then jump on the grey Bug to cross over.
Pocket Watch: After having entered the Tea Party Grounds at least once, return to Riddle Lane and clear the Area Debug Mode.
Card Soldiers: Lotus Forest, lower centre-left.

Also, if you enter Riddle Garden from the Central Plaza, at the end just before the two circling Heart Card Soldiers there's a Prize Bug (looking at the point you entered the map) with the "Invisi" ability inside it. When this ability is equipped and you are transparent, no attack will hit you. It has no Version Up. And the first time you talk to the Moogle in the Central Plaza, you can receive the Avatar Item, "Strange Wallpaper".

Further, the first time you enter the Strange Room, you'll be really small and on the top of the table. If you hang around for a while a Large Body will appear, and when you defeat him medicine will appear for you to drink. When you're small you can't do anything except hang around on top of the table.

As for the Area Debug Modes, there are the following types:
- Speak to the Card in the Strange Room (Bug removal type)
- Go from the Strange Room into the Riddle Garden (destroying Heartless type)
- Go from the Tea Party Grounds to Riddle Lane (bug snake destroying type, clear by destroying bugs several [3~4?] times)
We haven't yet confirmed things for the bug removal type, but if you beat the other two in a time less than 01:30:00 you receive the synthesis materials "____ Shard".

Replies to Alice's questions are as follows:
"What's my name?" : Alice.
When you first answer this question there are only two options, 'Alice' and '???'. After clearing this question you can start searching for memories. Answers to the other questions are below.
"Who am I chasing?" : The White Rabbit.
"In the tunnel, what did I fall down?" : A strange hole.
"Who did I ask how to get home?" : The Cheshire Cat.
"Whose castle did I visit?" : The Queen of Hearts.

If you answer all these, the conversation turns to talk of a keyhole in the Queen of Hearts' place, and you head off to the Queen of Hearts' castle. However, when you wonder, "Could there be more memories that I don't know about?" if you answer, "Yes, there are," you can answer further questions. However, when answering these further questions if you get even one wrong you well head straight to the Queen of Hearts' castle, so be careful. And you'll need knowledge of previous games (all the answers can be found in the Ultimania for the original KH).
"In the Queen of Hearts' castle, who was I caught by?" : Card Soldiers.
"After I was caught, what happened to me?" : A trial.
"After escaping the trial, I found the Tea Party. The two people meeting there were the White Rabbit and...?" : The Mad Hatter.
"What day were they celebrating the lack of?" : A birthday.
"Who was always dozing?" : The Doorknob.

If you get this far Alice will be satisfied, and give you the Ability "HP Gain", an ability that makes you recover health when you destroy a Bug.

And so Sora and Alice head to the Queen of Hearts' castle, where they've heard the keyhole is. But it seems the Queen of Hearts has had her memories stolen too, and they're put on trial, so Sora has to abandon Alice and discover the keyhole in the birdcage by himself. The cage starts off high up, so hit the handles on the tower it's hung from to lower it. Striking one will bring it about halfway down, so you'll have to hit the handle on the other side too, in time to lower it all the way. After lowering the bird cage, investigate it to clear the objective. During this time the map will become a maze so be careful. As large numbers of Heart Card Soldiers draw near, Sora goes through to the other side of the keyhole.

On the other side of the keyhole, your viewpoint will be like that in a shooting game. You can shoot bullets of light from your Keyblade, up to five at a time. You earn more points by defeating enemies simultaneously. You get ten points for everything except Prize Bugs and the Trick Master boss, multiplied by simultaneous hits. There are holes in this area that damage you if you step in them. This is pretty painful so be careful. You can jump with the Up key to dodge, adjust your position while jumping, and adjust the time you spend in the air by hitting the Down key to land sooner.
During Stage 2 the Trick Master will appear, but defeating him is not the end. You move on to Stage 3, where your directional keys are reversed, and the Trick Master reappears - defeat him again to finish. The first time you do this, you receive the Debug Ability "D Fire". This lets you shoot a target with a fireball, with a critical bonus if you have good timing.
There are five points where you can target the Trick Master, and the points you get for defeating him can be increased by simultaneous hits (2000~1000 for second hit, 500~2500 for third hit). So do your best to try to hit all five points at once.

Rank scores and bonuses are as below (still under investigation):

Standard Mode
C Rank: ~14999Pt
- synthesis item "____ Shard"
B Rank: 15000~19999Pt
- synthesis item "____ Shard +"
A Rank: 20000~24999Pt
- Ability "Stand Up" (first time only)
- (second time onwards)
S Rank: 25000Pt~
- Avatar Item "Strange Carpet (L)" (first time only)
- (second time onwards)

Proud Mode
C Rank: ~14999Pt
-
B Rank: 15000~19999Pt
-
A Rank: 20000~24999Pt
- (first time only)
- (second time onwards)
S Rank: 25000Pt~
- (first time only)
- (second time onwards)

Critical Mode
C Rank: ~14999Pt
-
B Rank: 15000~19999Pt
-
A Rank: 20000~24999Pt
-
S Rank: 25000Pt~
- (first time only)
- (second time onwards)

This time we can reliably get at least 700 points.

After clearing the story, a man in a black coat appears in front of Sora. Following the King's instructions, Sora chases him. The sound of the doors of Disney Castle opening is heard. The King and his friends wonder if Chip and Dale have arrived, but the one who enters is the Data Sora. How can this be? In front of the bewildered King and his friends, the man in the black coat appears. The King and Sora stand ready...

After clearing the level, Alice asks you to synthesise the accessory "Attack Chain ++". If you do this, she'll exchange it for the accessory "Wall Brace" (Defense +5, Attack +1, HP -1). The Attack Chain ++ will appear if you raise the Moogle's chain synthesis level to 3, but sometimes even trying his hardest he'll only create the chain synthesis level 2 item, Attack Chain +.
Also, on the right side of the Queen of Hearts' castle there's a Card Soldier collecting rubbish, who will trade you failed syntheses for raw materials. Some slightly good materials are now available from the Moogle outside the Traverse Town Cafe, but they cost a lot.

No the data Sora follows the Cloaked Figure but then the data Sora ends up in Disney Castle somehow.

Is real Sora in Disney Castle too? Or is Data sora the only one involved along with the hooded guy?

Only the Data Sora is in the game so far. The real Sora isn't there. Bascially what happened is, while in the Data world, Data Sora gave chase to an Organisation member, and somehow the Org member and Data Sora ended up in the real world of Disney Castle.

I saw a pic of mobile with a Sora with an Org Coat.. but it was mobile..not in the game.. but it could still mean something "/

If that person dressed Sora up like that because they saw it in the game or something..

Wow..coded is really turning out to be a good game!

Yeah and? So apprantly that means they can't come back in a fake data world. Besides, the organisation member has the same stance as Roxas.

Are you trying to imply that there is a secret member in the Organization, besides Xion of course?
Not really, more a case of whoever it is has either met Sora or is data... Is the journal KHI? If so it can't be an Org member apart from the one on the island, data Roxas?? Unless an Org member like, eg. Zexion found a way in...

It's Ven lol

The hooded unknown has got to be one of the "Sora" characters.

~Roxas
~Sora
~Ven

Or somebody new with a connection to Sora. I say this because the Organization member had a definite "Sora" build.
