First I wanted to apologize since this will be a bit of a rant. So please hear me out before attacking and understand this is my opinion. I'm open to discussing things. The ending for Kingdom Hearts 3 has left me questioning my stance on the franchise going forward and if I even want to take the time to play the game. I play this games primarily for the story and this game is a let down on so many levels in that department. Nomura claimed this game would at least wrap up Sora's story. I expected some sequel tease but for a new story and set of characters. We are left with so many unanswered questions and a dissatisfying ending. To make matters worse we're sequel baited incredibly hard. It's also lazy writing on Nomura's part. Sora leaves to find Kairi then suddenly we see them together before Sora disappears. We aren't told how he found her or why he disappeared or if what we're seeing really was her back. It's just left there unexplained and it's is definitely not a wrap to Sora's story. Now we have to wait and hope the next game does wrap things up there are so many ways this could of been written better and still set up a sequel while still giving people a conclusion if they wanted to stop here the epilogue just sequel baits us more and still leaves so many things unanswered. I expect the secret ending to do the same as well. This is just disappointing for how long we were kept waiting for this. I'm not sure if I want to stick with the franchise going forward if Nomura is involved. I've excepted the convoluted story in the past games hoping he would land the story to a good conclusion here. Instead he lands it lazily and sequel baits hard. This story has to end at some point and this was the perfect time and it's disrespectful to the fans who have waited and stuck with this franchise. On to my thoughts with Nomura himself. I'll admit I've never really been a fan of him as a person. In interviews he's always rubbed me in the wrong way but his recent interview pushed me over. His statements on worldwide releases are inconsiderate to the fanbase outside of Japan and would not fix a thing. Also this game wasn't a world wide simalteanous release anyways. I understand his frustration but how he reacted towards the leaks was overboard and he needs to understand we have been waiting awhile for this game. Again I apologize for ranting and thanks for your patience with this.
