I thought the complaint was repeating the same worlds three times over. Nobody except diehard fans gives a damn anout the story.
If the different chapters cover different worlds, its not as much an issue.
Gaps in the Story to be filled:
1. Xehanort's Past before BBS,Time as Ansem's Apprentice,Creation of the first Oragnization XIII, Anything else Nomura wants to reveal about him.
2. Aqua's time in the Realm of Darkness
3. Mickey's Time in the Realm of Darkness as well as any other periods of absence he has had in the series.
4. Riku's periods of absence throughout the series.
5. Possibly Lea and Kairi's Mark of Mastery Exam (Gathering the 7 princesses at Yen Sid's tower sounds like a good test to me, and since most of the princesses' worlds would likely appear in BBSV2, why not?)
6. The 9 year gap between the fall of Radiant Gardens upto KH1(Organization stuff, Mickey's adventures during this time, ect.)
7. A final chapter with Sora tieing into KH3
All of this could be covered in BBSV2.
I also think they should do a chapter based story system, with each chapter focusing on the events surrounding a certain character through out the series.
Chapter 1 - Prologue
Chapter 2 - Darkness Awakens (Playable Character: Xehanort)
Chapter 3 - Quest of a King (Playable Character: King Mickey)
Chapter 4 - A Light in the Darkness (Playable Character: Aqua)
Chapter 5 - The Path to Dawn (Playable Character: Riku)
Chapter 6 - The Lights that Keeps Burning (Playable Characters: Kairi and Lea)
Chapter 7 - Down a Lonely Road (Playable Character: Sora)
Then have a multiplayer mode incorporating a number of Versus features like Dissidia type battles (Since Dissidia was originaly meant to be a KH game. Maybe make it similar to the struggle battles in KH2) with the main characters and organization members. Of course a plethora of mini-games, and whatever else they could put in that would be cool and fun.
That's not the issue. People hate BBS's scenario system. It became jarring to do a story three times because the story felt broken. They'd probably stick to two or three characters and do it in a way where their story flows perfectly without any bumpy breaks.
Okay, everyone. So most people seem to think BbS2 will be the next game. I really want to know what worlds people want to see and what stories for those worlds, including who'd be traveling there (Aqua, Mickey, ??). BbS had 10 worlds (not including Mysterious Tower, Mirage Arena, Destiny Islands), so let's assume BbS2 would have between 10-12.
So from the little I've read in the spoilers section, it seems that Kairi will be trained to use the Keyblade in the final battle. Also, perhaps the Princess are going to need protection? So my idea for the game involves two scenarios, Aqua in the RoD from around the time of KH1/end of BbS to the present and Kairi in the RoL in the present as she trains with the Keyblade and seeks out the other Princesses. The idea of two female protagonists in a game like this is pretty exciting to me. There are some worlds that will be exclusive to each scenario, so below I will specify with A/K
Castle of Dreams (A/K)
Dwarf Woodlands (A/K)
Enchanted Dominion (A/K)
Beast's Castle (A/K)
Pride Lands (A/K)
Land of Dragons (A)
"One Hundred and One Dalmatians" (A)
"The Sword in the Stone" (A)
"Lilo & Stitch" (K)
"Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland" (K)
Twilight Town (A/K)
Destiny Islands (A/K)
Radiant Garden (K)
I'll update later with more story info of each world.
When said story is as batsh!t insane as KH's, yes. We're diehards & yet we can't figure it all out. What's that say for the average person who just wanted to play the games for all of the Disney stuff?People have to be die hard fans of a series to care about the story in a game? :/

Fine, I mean they were in it for the Disney/FF crossover, didn't think I had to be that freaking specific. Not that it matters when the series has become all about the new made-up characters instead.Anyone who plays the game purely for the Disney aspect are in for disappointment regardless, because Kingdom Hearts is an amalgamation of Disney and Final Fantasy.
What you said:I never said they don't enjoy the games, just story has nothing to do with said enjoyment.
Nobody except diehard fans gives a damn anout the story.
That doesn't change what I was saying much. People still can play some of the titles without being too confused (KH1, BBS Coded); the rest of the games may be one giant mind kupo without any prior knowledge of the series, but they can still enjoy the game for the story.Fine, I mean they were in it for the Disney/FF crossover, didn't think I had to be that freaking specific.

Six playable characters seems like a bad idea. Too many shifts in focus and too little development.
That's bull, honestly. You can play Birth by Sleep and Re:Coded without prior knowledge of the series and understand the story just fine (though it helps to have played them chronologically as they were released).

And you know what, you can start on any entry of the series and be completely kupoing confused, yet still enjoy the game for the story. I did it.
You do not have to be a die hard KH fan to enjoy the story in any of the games.
Taochan is right. I started the series on CoM. I have plenty of friends that have started on random ones like 2, days or Re:coded and they love the series just as much (and yes the story is part of their enjoyment, MATGSY. In fact, story is the main reason people love KH games I think.)
Nomura said BBS was as far back in the time line that he was planning to go, so we would not get a game with Xehanort and Eraqus as the playable characters. Also, none of that was even hinted at in the BBS:FM secret video.I think a likely plot for the game would be young Xehanort and Eraqus and their adventures, exploring who Xehanort became who he is, and how he gained mastery over time travel and started working for the future incarnation of Organization XIII. There could be two stories - one where Eraqus fights for light with Yen Sid acting as his mentor, and another where Xehanort is working towards fulfilling darker plans with Master Xehanort directing him.
