Yeah definitely! Iâ€™ve been saying for a while that her combined powers as a PoH and a Keyblade wielder should make her one of the more powerful characters. If she could hug Sora and bring him back from his Heartless form, I wouldnâ€™t be surprised if she could do something to purify the Xehanort vessels.Maybe her Princess of Heart powers will actually be important here? They've never given us a baseline/scope for what she can actually do to them.
She undid the corruption of a heart to turn a heartless back into a heart instantly and she has the power to push away darkness in general. So with that in mind the idea that Kairi's power might be a cure is actually really brilliant. Kairi may have been the antidote for Nortification all along, if that's the case it almost would make sense why she was sidelined. Can't have her develop her powers and render Xehanort's most dangerous ability/the thing that much of Xehanort's plan hinges on null and void.Maybe her Princess of Heart powers will actually be important here? They've never given us a baseline/scope for what she can actually do to them.
Iâ€™m hoping for some callbacks to KH1 where Sora would see Kairi while she was in his heart. He could see Roxas, Ven, and even Xion this way and it could be fleshed out a bit more where he actually can speak to them some.I could see Roxas being the second playable character as a kind of Drive Form where he "swaps" control of Sora's body with him, and because of the influence and presence of Ven's heart he still looks like the Roxas we know. Maybe that's the only Form we get to dual wield in. Depending on how it's implemented, it might make for an interesting kind of tag team element; maybe there's also a random-ish possibility of Roxas taking over for Sora if you die, like Mickey in KH2.
I wouldn't mind at all if Sora was actually in contact with Roxas throughout KH3. I'd like to see their relationship develop, and it might help contextualize some of these scenes with Ansem SoD and Xemnas, if they know Roxas is awake within Sora and they're working together to bring him back.
I'm torn on this idea because on the one hand I am totally burnt out on plot twists with this game and I also don't want the trashfire that is X anywhere near it, but on the other this would be undeniably badass and I would probably cheer if it happened anyway. Kairi needs to be put front and center for once, and there are a lot of smart ways to do it rooted in her arc over the past numbered titles, notwithstanding her absence from the "spin-offs."From there, there are all kinds of ways to write the story. Perhaps she uses the light of these children to rebuild the lost world like she heard in her story so much. Or maybe she finds the new union leader that has the book of prophecies and uses it to rebuild the lost world by summoning it from within the book. Etc... Really who knows but now I'm imagining all kinds of potential for Kairi that can lead her to saving everyone.
Ohh yes, definitely this. In fact if this doesn't happen it's almost criminally bad writing, why would Kairi's heart echo within Sora's but not Roxas's, Ven's and Xion's as they are awoken within him? I think the gradual awareness of them should constitute one of the frameworks for KH3, in that Sora is coming to understand the nature of his connections to other people and act on them. He won't be caught off guard like he was with Kairi in KH1; this time he's going to fight for the hearts of the people within him.Iâ€™m hoping for some callbacks to KH1 where Sora would see Kairi while she was in his heart.

Yeah see, I know he leaves it on a hopeful note, but to me this is just such a shitty thing to read. I loved the Final Fantasy aspect so much in Kingdom Hearts, so seeing it basically discarded and pushed to the side like this sucks. I don't think FF characters should just be a "maybe" in a Kingdom Hearts game.I can't disclose too much about the Final Fantasy characters or whether or not they'll be in Kingdom Hearts 3, because I can only speak to what's been shown. But the reason you haven't been shown any Final Fantasy characters is that there are so many original characters that need to resolve their own problems and issues. And because their issues and problems are very difficult, there just hasn't been that much space to fit Final Fantasy characters so far." When you look back on the first Kingdom Hearts, Sora was still a new character, so we kind of had the Final Fantasy characters as supporting characters. But now that it's been 15 years, the original characters are more polished than they were before, so I don't think think they need the Final Fantasy characters help as much as they did before. [...] Also, when we first released Kingdom Hearts, there weren't that many other titles that brought together the Final Fantasy characters. I actually think that Kingdom Hearts may have been the first to do that. But nowadays, there are an abundance of titles that do that, so I don't see the value of having that kind of feature in the game anymore. But that doesn't mean that I'm saying that there won't be any Final Fantasy characters. Please look forward to future information.
Nomura getting bugged about Aqua in almost every interview makes me happy. I hope he now FINALLY realizes just how much the fandom want new stories from Aqua instead of her just getting accosted and humiliated even further. But "The Player" makes me hopeful. Because having Sora save her is probably the least interesting thing you could do with this scenario. If she's possessed and can't help herself why not use Riku, the expert in fighting possession and purifying darkness? Shouldnâ€™t Terra finally fulfill his promise and â€˜make everything rightâ€™? What about Kairi since they have the keyblade inheritance connection? Or Mickey, the person whoâ€™s feeling guilty about how long he took to finally help TAV? I want literally anyone else from the main cast to help Aqua besides the trio of Sora, Donald, and Goofy. This isnâ€™t a dig against Sora, I like him, but it doesn't feel right for him to be involved with this certain case.The player? I feel like Nomura tying to sidestep just who specifically will save Aqua.
Cos that's just what the complicated lore of Kingdom Hearts needs. Parallel timelines.I mean we're told time can't be changed that destiny is set in stone, but nothing has ever said that KH doesn't have branching timelines where simultaneous futures exist in parallel.
