I think a lot of people forget that video game production (especially from major producers) is not a democracy. Sure they’ll consider what fans may say or ask for, but at the end of the day they are gonna tell the story they want to tell and make the gameplay decisions they want to make. FF has not had a major role in KH for AWHILE now, there is absolutely no reason that’s going to change outside of “the fans keep asking for it”. TWEWY may play a role going forward, but that’s still not a guarantee.
I mean the people making these titles already have quite a list of expectations and requirements for what the focus of any particular game is, they are not going to be overly swayed by public want, especially considering that even if they did do that the majority would still be displeased with the end result.
Remind is a perfect example of how far fan outcry will actually get you, a mini episode featuring said characters for five minutes of screen time. Not really trying to attack anyone here, just wanted to voice this since nowadays there’s this weird misconception that if fans beg and plead and protest enough, these major game producers are actually going to do something about those complaints (i.e. Pokémon Sw/Sh National Dex, Smash DLC fighters, etc.)
This. All of this.
