You know the thing about market is that, they are allow to reuse assets to save money and time, but we are allow too to not buy that? I see a lot of people complaining on why this game is made. Even if it was the most stupid game in history, if they want to sell it they can, and we can choose not to buy it and see the story content on YouTube. That's fair play. I don't mind that much the gatcha games for example. I can't say I play it, and I've never spent an euro on them. However, if its beneficial for them and they put story on it, I just go to see the amazing translations people are doing.Yall, MoM doesn't exist to tell Kairi's backstory. The story in this game is an afterthought and merely a cheap method to reuse cut content. The game exists for the rhythm aspect. I 100% promise you what story MoM features will be short, sour, poorly paced, and abruptly interrupted for the sake of even more UX (or DR) sequel baiting.
I understand where are you coming from. Me, as KH fan and a Kairi "stand" (not a fan but I still bet on her) would be highly dissapointed if her only arc in this coming Saga becomes a few cutscenes in a rhythm game where we play as Sora. I actually don't think it would be the case, but let's put it in the worst case scenario. The thing is, we know almost nothing about the second phase, except maybe some UX stuff. We don't know the big plan above all, if it is a good plan, a rushed plan, or what. Many people are already jumping into the hate train of "why a rhythm game" and "the story would be bad". And setting the first group apart, we actually got one of the best storylines in one of the weirdest KH games: CoM. And the card system was widely hated at the time, but the story content turned out amazing. Even X, although went a little of rails with UX, had a pretty solid story for what it was/is.I think a lot of people's issues stem from the fact that story content, especially Kairi content, is being shoved in here. Imo, it's likely these are just gonna be a few cutscenes, in which case, why not add as a free update to KH3? It would do wonders to improve the relationship between fans and the company and it's not as if there's zero precedence for this in KH.
It's like.... A lot of people wanted a rhythm game, and a lot of people wanted a kairi game, but putting the two together like this dissatisfies the people who just wanted a no strings attached spin off (and yeah I get it, I've been around the block with KH, I KNOW we can't have "spin offs" but we can at least have recoded level connectivity to the plot) and the people who wanted a deep dive into Kairi's character - and I hugely disagree with the people who say she's not enough to hold a game on her own. Well, that's why you have writers innit.
People are just tired of the piecemeal plot nonsense. Imagine going to a restaurant famed for its main courses, but when you get there you're just served small amounts of everything and it's all played separately and given to you separately, rather than the main course you expected or were promised, but you're told to be grateful anyway.
I dunno, I'm not happy with this alleged new start for KH being just as bad with plot as the old ones and I wish they'd stop with the drop feed content. It's not really cool or amazing to me, even though both components of the game are something I've been hankering for a long time. I'm sure FF Theatrythm would be equally divisive if it suddenly had hidden content that confirmed Squall died at the end of disc 1 or something equally stupid.
Maybe one spot is for the new unannounced game, the other spot could be for the upcoming series on Disney +Interesting username and Avatar, lol
I think Nomura just wanted to have a Rhythem game in the series. As for a console game based on UX we have two spots for unannounced games. One of them could be the game you want.
Okay, let me stop you there. People have been asking for a KH rhythm game for a while now.Literally nobody asked for this.
Yes to your whole post, but especially this part. I am very confused about how I personally should feel about this game (beyond the "Kairi-game" part of the equation) because, while I'm totally on board on principle, I think I really suck at Rhythm games. KH mini-games have always made me cry because they meant I'd never be able to unlock those rare items, and the Fantasia Reality Shift in DDD gave me a ridiculously hard time. I feel like I'm going to get stuck half-way through at best and will have to watch the game on YouTube anyway. It's fine, but I'm sadI just don’t understand. Not everybody is good at rhythm games. The new/returning audience they built from KH3 is likely not interested in a game like this. And we have the core audience scratching their heads because while we have been begging for a rhythm game, we didn’t expect it in this form.
Exactly.Okay, let me stop you there. People have been asking for a KH rhythm game for a while now.
Making it canon to the overall plot? Yeah that's where we get kind of a problem. But if anything, it makes me more interested in the game honestly.
