Thoughts of genre shifts in KH?

I prefer KH sticking to being ARPGs since that's what the series was founded on and the gameplay is really fun IMO. That said, if I had to pick genre shifts for the series, I'd take a SRPG, turn based JRPG, kart racer, and/or visual novel.

^ I agree, I'd prefer it to stay in its own lane. But I won't lie, I'm happy we're getting a Theatrhythm-esque game for KH. I'd love a KH Dissidia or racing game, too.

I actually could see KH been an RPG in a future game. But it will most likely have a gimmick so that it will stick out from the other PRGs.

Man, thinking about it, I'd love if they would just finally get a non-Osaka team to make a Musou. Not because I like those games at all, but because it might potentially cause the next major game to veer away from KH3's already musou-like approach. I'd rather face 5-7 mobs that each pack a wallop and have fun mechanics than a room full of punching-bag mooks.

Otherwise, I'm down for some kind of MOBA or RTS. A game all about raising/interacting with Heartless and Nobodies would break the lore but be cute. I feel like KH has a personality issue that gets in the way of a potential Mario Kart clone, and I don't think there's a team at Square Enix capable of making it feel fun.

KH MMO-lite but without the nasty over-complicated currency systems and arbitrary material/equipment systems that comes out of GaaS games. Keep it like KH but just make it a MMO. Don’t force monetized costumes in. Have options to pay if you want but make everything unlockable without timed exclusives or major grinding sessions.

You know, after that Lego Star Wars Skywalker Saga game finally comes out, TT Games could make their next project.....

Well there's always spirit dream eaters as a light-aligned force.

That is actually not a bad idea. I wish I could see this game come into fruition but you would have to Square Enix and Disney and knowing the former, they will try to somehow connect it to the other games.
