Luminary, you are definitely our little sunshine in this dark depressing thread full of clownery. ☀️

Your hopeful posts full of positivity for news always put a smile on my face :love:

I really appreciate you in this thread

Aww thank you, NoWay! That really means a lot. Idealism is in my nature, so I tend to see things more on the positive and hopeful side. Lol

My general approach is to be hopeful while keeping actual expectations in check. This can still lead to some natural disappointment of course. But it’s different than when you’re actually expecting something and it doesn’t pan out. I’ve learned to not expect anything with this series, but will remain hopeful!

Also, if the clown thing has been overdone, I propose we start saying we’re gettin’ goofy. And instead of joining the circus, we’re joining the Goof Troop. 🤭

LET'S GO MORE HOPIUM

Fr though I've never seen more clownery than the Ace Attorney fandom (which I am also a part of). There has been no new mainline game since 2016 and we dare to hope every single time.

I’m still keeping the hope alive for a new Sly Cooper or Jak and Daxter one day. 😅

You're not the only one, though it'd be a tough series to make anotjer season for.
I mean, the writer had specific plans for it. That's why I want it to happen.

It seems very unlikely to get funded in the current industry, though.

Ah, I didn't know that! That's a shame, then.

y'all are in a frenzy lately, so many posts I thought something actually happened.

Well, the ports are exciting, at least! It's not nothing 🤣

I don’t think they did anything like this for the EGS release that I remember?
I think it's a two-pronged thing. This is a huge opportunity to relaunch KH's popularity and get a new audience without having to do all that much, and it also gets people thinking about KH again, so that when they drop a KH4 trailer, there's more of an install base, so they can hype up KH on its own merits instead of needing to necessarily immediately rely on Darth Vader or something to get attention.

My one gripe in all this is that abysmal Steam trailer. It's really just foul for so many reasons. Opening with Back Cover instead of KH1 and then proceeding to spoil the endgame events of every single game just depresses me. Like, this'd be a perfect strategy if not for that dogshit trailer. They really need to hire someone who knows what they're doing with stuff like this

They should've focused just on the gameplay

I love KH for both the story and gameplay but the gameplay is the best way to get people invested in the series

Though if they skipped showing Re:COMS gameplay, I'd completely understand why lol

One thing I did notice from the EGS release when I was looking back is they actually reposted some of the old trailers for those games that highlighted each collection. Those had gameplay and I think I could have forgiven them for the initial Steam trailer if they’d done something similar again.

But yeah, I agree this is a great way to reinvigorate the series ahead of any big announcements. I’m hoping it’s all leading to D23.

Edit: Adding this from Carly. Sounds like even more will be part of it.

WHOOOOO is the SQEX social media editorrrrrr 😡😡😡😡

It can't be easier to make a decent KH trailer, you just go:

PEGI 12

*ting* Square Enix

press play on Utada song of choice

glassy tile effect go brrrrrr

show one cameo CUT show next cameo CUT KH navel gazy BS CUT Gameplay CUT show another cameo CUT

Intersperse some Deep and Meaningful quotes While the deep voiced narrator gives a little speech on the M Y S T E R Y

"Kingdom Hearts - coming to Steam on 13/06"

see i didnt even think that hard. I'm confident that any layman can follow this script, so that you, too, can make a KH trailer!

You've painted a picture, mate. I can see it.

If they don't tease unseen/unreleased KH content tomorrow I might actually crash out because there's no way they're doing all this for PC ports that already existed via EGS.

A lot of people were resistant to install yet another game launcher and buy the games on a completely separate library when they already have dozens (or hundreds) of games neatly organized on Steam, so it might be a good move to market this release and try to get these people interested.

I wouldn't be THAT surprised by the games industry for both the marketers and fans alike to be vastly more interested in ports than in new art

There’s some stuff going around that Midori’s leaks (especially the SE ones) should probably be taken with a hefty grain of salt.
