trapped in revamp hell
- Nov 1, 2009
KINGDOM HEARTS Union X Japan updated today with 15 new story quests, covering the player's trip to the beach with their friends and introduces the long-awaited 5th Union leader, Strelitzia!
Edit: Thanks to goldpanner, translations for these scenes are now available, as well as subtitled videos!
(An ordinary day in Daybreak Town, Keyblade wielders move about in the Fountain Plaza)
???: I've got this favourite spot--
(High above the others, sitting on the rooftop is a girl with Chirithy.)
Strelitzia: I'm Strelitzia.
This is my spot. Mine alone.
I've spent my days these past two years defeating creatures from the dark and protecting light.
I've met a lot of people, and said goodbye to a lot of people.
My party members have been replaced over and over, too.
I didn't have many teammates or friends who'd been with me since the start.
(Flashback to the Player waiting for Ephemera in the Fountain Plaza, as Strelitzia crosses paths and watches in the background)
But, I do have a "friend" who I've shared the time with since way back.
I first saw them at the fountain plaza.
You looked as though you'd been waiting for someone for a long time.
I went on my mission, and you were still there waiting or whatever you were doing by the time I got back.
In the end they never came. You picked up your Chirithy, and tears welled up in your eyes.
(Flashbacks to the Player’s adventures throughout the worlds, again with Strelitzia watching in the background.
Ever since that, I'd come across you every now and then.
I think I'd probably actually seen you before that too, but after I saw you at the fountain plaza that time I began to be aware of you whenever you were around me.
So many times I saw you and thought of striking up a conversation, but in the end I was never brave enough.
Back then, everyone was just going about their days as usual, not sensing that anything was wrong.
But it seemed like you were seeing something different to everyone else - you looked somewhat special.
You don't know me, but I felt like we were friends.
I always hoped we'd get to talk someday.
(Strelitzia walks alone in Daybreak Town, when she is stopped by a voice calling out.)
(She turns around to see Lady Ava and approaches her.)
Strelitzia: Lady Ava.
Ava: You are a Dandelion, right?
Ava: I know this is sudden, but there's something I'd like to ask of you.
Strelitzia: Huh? Me?
(Ava presents her with a book.)
Ava: Please stay calm and listen while I tell you this. Soon, this world will--
(You and your friends arrive at the beach! You’re pretty distracted and seem to forget why you came there in the first place.)
Pink: All right, let's have fun!!
(Bandana shouts to get everyone’s attention.)
Pink: My bad. The mission comes first, right.
Afro: Let's get it done ASAP!
Mog: Is playing around really all the two of you can think of, kupo?
Bandana: Now, I'm going to explain the mission, okay?
(You clear the mission)
Bandana: Great job! Mission complete.
Afro: Which means~?
Bandana: Yeah, let's go play at the beach. The Operation has commenced!
(You all rejoice.)
Pink: Yaaaay! All right, let's get changed!
(Everyone changes into their swimwear and get ready to play.)
Pink: Aw, no fair!
Mog: Wait, kupo!
(The three of them suddenly stop running. A lone Keyblade wielder, also in swimwear, approaches them and lets out a sigh.)
Keyblade Wielder: Looks like you guys came here with the same thought as I did…
But, unfortunately, swimming is prohibited.
Bandana: Did something happen?
(You and Bandana make your way over.)
Keyblade Wielder: A dangerous monster appeared in the ocean.
And even my friends...
(Shock and disbelief.)
Keyblade Wielder: Anyway. You guys had better head back as soon as possible.
Afro: ...Oh well. Let's go home.
(You all start to walk away, except for Bandana who remains firmly in place.)
Bandana: Are you really all okay with that?
With all our strength combined, we've overcome everything that came our way.
This is the same.
A mission has just begun!
(The rest of you look at each other and agree.)
(You gather at the shore where Pink is.)
Bandana: Did you figure something out?
(Pink steps into the water.)
Pink: Was there really a monster?
Mog: Agh, don't go in, kupo!
(You spot something in the distance and try to get everyone’s attention, but they don’t notice.)
Pink: Seems fine to me!
(You keep trying to get everyone’s attention as the thing in the distance approaches. It’s a dark fin, and it’s coming fast!)
Afro: Look out!
(The monster leaps out of the water as you all quickly move out of the way.)
Pink: There it is!
(You join together and prepare to fight.)
Bandana: Be on your guard, everyone!
(You all nod.)
(Now that the monster has been defeated, you’re free to play without a care in the world. Sunset comes, and you return to the boat to go home. Chirithy watches from the lighthouse.)
Chirithy: All right, let's go back to the usual spot.
