With Kingdom Hearts 3 recently being confirmed and Kingdom Hearts 1.5 (a compilation of Kingdom Hearts 1, Chain of Memories, and 358/2 Days) I thought it’d be a nice time to take a look at the franchise and see what would be nice to see in a new installment.
4. Back to the Roots
I have not played any of the none-console games (Chain of Memories, 358/2 Days, Birth by Sleep, or Dream Drop Distance). And while this is in part because I don’t have any of the devices to play these on (ain’t nobody got time or the money for that), it is mostly because I don’t care much for the whole Organization XIII aspect of it. Yeah, it’s interesting to an extent, but I want to play as Sora. We can play as someone else after Sora’s story is done.
Sure, KH2 was loads of fun, and they definitely amped up the fighting system, but the straying away from the main villains being Disney badies bothered me a bit. And quite frankly, it made it way more complicated than it needed to be.
3. Dual Wield all the time
KH2 introduced using two keyblades when Sora took one of his Drive Forms. That was cool and all, but I want to dual wield all the time. We already know that there’s thousands of keyblades out there, why can’t Sora have two all the time?
2. No Gummi Ship!
If there’s one thing I consistently disliked in all the games, it was the gummi ship. Sure it’s an okay mini game the first two worlds, but after that it gets tedious and annoying. It takes you out of the game and always felt very pushed.
Basically, they need to either to some drastic overhauls or just get rid of it completely.
1. Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars
Disney has procured a few companies since KH2 came out and I want them all.
If I don’t see toy-sized Sora kicking it with Woody and Buzz, throwing his key-shield with Captain America or slinging with Spidey, or at least destroying that wicked Empire with Luke and the gang, I’m going to be very disappointed.
Some people might think it is too different or whatever. And to that I respond with: really?
We have Sora as a lion in the Pridelands then as a weird goth kid in Christmasland, and you think that the other franchises would be too “out there”? Dude turned into a lion cub to justify them using the Lion King.
