That I do. Nomura could've gone back and elaborated on a few things, but overall I think he did rather well. And I don't doubt youre a fan, maybe youre a bigger one than me, i dunno. I am in no way saying Im a bigger fan than you, I am just voicing my opinion. I apologize.
What point? That KH3 can't wrap-up some minor and unimportant details? Fine then. You win. *bows down*
That I ever say I dislike how the story is shaping up? No. I'm hatting how the plot's writer shapes it up, forgetting about important details. Do you remember Trident having knowledge of the keyblade? There have been a lot of games after KH1 and that was NEVER explained.
So, you DO acknowledge the existence of inconsistencies in the plot so far. :>
You're avoiding the point, and also, if you don't like how the story is shaping up, why not quit Kingdom Hearts? I love the story, I think it's great (except for a few minor plotholes, yes), and I love the series as a whole. I know most people are probably going to quit after KH3, but I'm not one of them. I will continue to play any games that Nomura releases.
But this brings me back to my point, as Nomura expanded the story rather nicely.
A lot of people would beg to differ. Nomura writes up the story as he goes, as in, he doesn't revise past plots, reason as to why we've had so many retcons.
He established some backstory on the keyblade, introduced how Sora and Riku could both weild the keyblade, what happened to Xehanort, etc.
Even in KH2, backstory for the keyblade was unnecessary. Again, KH1 introduced the keyblade was a weapon that had a mind of its own, even after KH1, a backstory for the keyblade wasn't needed. What happened to Xehanort? If you mean by his past then reports in KH3 could have covered that up.
But this brings me back to my point, as Nomura expanded the story rather nicely. He established some backstory on the keyblade, introduced how Sora and Riku could both weild the keyblade, what happened to Xehanort, etc. I myself cannot wait for KH3 either, though it's not saying much, because I'm rather impatient when it comes to Any KH games. I myself like what the series has become. I wouldn't have it any other way, and once Nomura begins the next saga after KH3, perhaps he will just have a straight trilogy, or maybe he'll do this all again. But all I know is, Kingdom Hearts tells a very compelling story from start to finish, and once this one finishes, another one will start.
How did Riku get chosen for the Keyblade?
That was unimportant in KH1, since the keyblade was described as an animated object with a small mind of its own.
Who were the other Keyblade weilders Xigbar referred to?
By the time Xigbar says this, one can say is that he was referring to Mickey and/or Riku.
Who exactly was Xehanort?
One of Ansem the Wise's apprentices. If his reports covered him, the Heartless and the Nobodies pretty well, why can't in KH3 there be reports clarifying a lot of "unanswered questions"? Meaning that KH3 could have handled everything pretty nicely.
How did Riku get chosen for the Keyblade? Who were the other Keyblade weilders Xigbar referred to? Who exactly was Xehanort? Why did Riku attack Roxas in TWTNW in Deep Dive? All these questions and more couldn't have been released without the sidegames. So, all this taken into consideration, you are obviously one of the ones who lived their whole KH playing lives waiting for KH3, which, frankly, I find naive. You don't want the series to be elaborated on? You don't want to know the whole story? Fine, but countless others do, and it was for us this series was created. To tell a story. Not to prep you for one game that all you misguided fanboys can't wait for called KH3. No offense to you Seraph, But I still feel like every single one of the games thus far has been important, and we couldn't have done without them. So I hope you've taken this into consideration.
Roxas' days in Organization XIII unimportant. Don't see what's so important about learning someone's life in a group when in KH2, you get ALL the important details. The tormented ones are important because of coded. Before coded, all that was important was fight Xehanort's Heartless, his Nobody and, possibly, his complete being. Riku's time when Sora was asleep was covered in KH2; he was snooping around about Organization XIII alongside Mickey and protecting DiZ, Namine, Sora, Donald and Goofy. The data inside Sora wasn't part, again, of the standalone trilogy plot. See, problem is, if the series were, once again, a standalone trilogy, KH3 could have covered KH1 and 2 quite nicely.
People are saying Days and Coded don't matter (albeit a bit naively). But if KH3 were just released, we would've had to find out about Roxas' days in the Org. as promised, found out about all of the tormented ones AND had to save them, continue through multiple Filler Disney Worlds, learned of Riku's time while Sora was asleep, learn of the Data in Sora, and also fight the final battle against Xehanort. Much too much for one KH game.
