I generally try not to complain about a company not making a sequel or a game “fast enough”, as I realize that it is up to the creators and not the fans. It is ultimately their work and they can do whatever they want with it; however, I think that Square Enix is making a huge mistake. They’ve taken a massive hit and are losing a great deal of money: something that could be remedied by working on and releasing a highly anticipated game such as KH: III or Final Fantasy: Versus.
Well the fact you said they “showed a teaser at the end of KH2 for KH3” shows you haven’t been paying attention to the series in years.
The teaser at the end of KH2 is for Birth By Sleep, which is on the PSP and is arguably the most important game in the series because it involves the backstory for everything that is going to take place in KH3, basically. It is a prequel to KH1 and explains why Sora and Riku even get keyblades in the first place.
Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance is essentially Kingdom Hearts 3: part 1 because it sets the story up for a final battle that is going to take place and takes place after Kingdom Hearts 2.
You can argue 358/2 Days and Re:Coded were somewhat only backstory info, but regardless, you and a lot of other “fans” (I use the word loosely) are going to be confused because you took legitimate games as being “unimportant” purely for the fact they are on handhelds and not consoles.
There are plenty of series out that take place ONLY on handhelds so I have no idea where this assumption that hand held games automatically are equivalent to being “worthless”.
I’m 90% sure that Kingdom Hearts isn’t going anywhere, because despite the fact there are a lot of fans like you, the vast majority of fans have continued on with the series and have bought every single game that has come out after KH2. It is still earning a large amount of income from the real fans and the new fans, who have had a chance to join the series due to the expansion to multiple gaming platforms.
I’d ask you to marry me for this, but we are just meeting so that is awkward. Instead, I will say PERFECT POST.
