    No more Jesse McCartney spin-offs, GET ON WITH KINGDOM HEARTS III ALREADY!!!

  2. Gailyn Pilimai Says:

    true to that Ian get a move on with KH III hurry it up were WAITING!?

  3. Guest Says:

    Questions and comments I need to ask and state.

    Questions: What are the other projects Nomura mentions with the Osaka team? What is this “secret message” just now mentioned; is it related to the KH3D ending or something? How many more spin-offs before KH3? Yes, I know they are important to the story (so Nomura says), but COME ON!

    Comments: This “near future” stuff better mean something at E3. Even if it’s “Kingdom Hearts 3 starts development next summer at the latest” or “Versus XIII 90% done, to be finished by Christmas time”. Unless Nomura thinks E3 2013 or TGS 2012 are “near future” events.

  4. Ifte 'Bentley' Ahmed Says:

    The Xehanorts are my favourite antagonists of all time…
    Vanitas better be the next Antagonist cause a brand new character couldn’t possibly outwit Xehanort.

  5. Brooke Says:

    People who check this website but still call games spin-offs actually exist? They may be “side games” but they ARE important to the story and you’ll be highly confused when KH3 comes out if you don’t play them/learn the story by watching cutscenes/read wikis etc etc.

    I really hope this new game is KH3 too, guys, but come on, don’t hate on the other games. Especially BBS or KH3D; they’re both equivalent as numbered titles, basically. You could practically call KH3D: KH3 part 1 if you really wanted to. 

  6. doctorpope181 Says:

    If the new title isn’t KHIII, I’m gonna scream. If it is, however, I just might need new underpants.

  7. Adonis Watkins Says:

    i couldnt have said that better myself

  8. Kahlil Lavance Says:

    Anyone that complains about a KH title being a spin off is not a fan. Plain and simple.

  9. Jack Mowat Says:

     You’re overdone, overemphasised and overused hatred of Roxas is both annoying and boring. We get it. You don’t like Roxas. You don’t have to tell us as many times as possible in every possible post. What’s more is you really seem to think we care.
    Plus your lack of respect to Square Enix, who bust a gut to give us these games in the quality they’re at as soon as they can, is just offensive.

  10. keyblade legacy Says:

    KH3D is its own full fledged sequel to kingdom hearts 2 so i dont really know why your saying its a side story like BBS

  11. Josh Isaac Says:

    You. Are. Right.

  12. Ian Manning Says:

    “Lack of respect”? Where were you born in, Julia Robert’s afterbirth? I respect Square-Enix as much as the next guy. I love Square-Enix, I just hate Pop Stars, they just aren’t manly, they’re sissies, just like iCarly’s cast, as well as The Big Bang Theory, with their main character nerds and only one hot girl, used to lure in male audiences. The nerds best attempt at a joke is a scientific explanation followed by an unnecessary laughing track. People who think I’m against Square are just as stupid as the fangirls who love Roxas and his faggy cousins, Edward and Jakob. And that’s you in a nutshell.

  13. Mahael Says:

     You are really obnoxious, evidently.  Do us a favor and quiet down. 

  14. Maurice Hoek Says:

     I don’t understand why people call Birth by Sleep a ‘side-story’, it’s Kingdom Hearts Zero, plain and simple…

  15. KingdomheartsFTW Says:

    probly the best comment on this site

  16. Sephiroth Says:

    The Secret Message isn’t spoiler-y, and isn’t the secret ending for KH3D, so I feel pretty safe in discussing it. It talks about ‘the past’ being ‘reawakened’ ‘in never-before-seen detail’ as ‘a new number’. I’m thinking it means we’ll see KH1 remastered and re-released as ‘Kingdom Hearts I’.

    (The third line of the Secret Message also tells us to ‘prepare ourselves for the next number’, so this HD Remaster will probably include a secret trailer for KH3, too.)

  17. Joeladrian96 Says:

    There was a word back in the day for what Mahael just said, I think it was called “burn” ;)

  18. TheBlitz Says:

    You know what? I agree with them completely. Your offensive comments are annoying me for quite a while now, too. The more you talk and the more you scream out your hatred against very random things… the more you are making a silly fool out of yourself. Seriously! Those comments of yours are disturbed (!!!) and can’t even be taken seriously anymore. Nobody is interested in your weird explanations on why The Big Bang Theory (currently the most successful sitcom, btw) sucks and what your problems with Square Enix are. And don’t tell us you don’t have a problem with SE. You are upset about the weirdest and tiniest things.
    Well, it’s your choice if you want to go on this behavior or not. But before you write the silly insults and weird reasons on why you have the knowledge and why I am a stupid sucker (I’m sure something like this already swirls in your mind), you should realize that I’m ‘surprisingly’ not the only one who thinks like that. So go on, but don’t be disappointed when you’re not getting respect for such comments.

  19. TheBlitz Says:

    Woah! Didn’t realize I wrote so much. Sorry for the off-topic community! :)
    Anyway, I don’t think the next installment of the KH-Franchise will be anything other than KH3. Nomura made so many hints that it’s kinda obvious and I don’t see any room for smaller side-games anymore. Plus, PIXAR Worlds… How cool is that? I knew they keep them for KH3! XD (I know that wasn’t a promise but it makes me optimistic. :D
    I’d like to know what “near future” means, too, but I’m patient. Can’t wait for further information. Hope that wasn’t all. :D

  20. Guest- Says:

    “Anyone that complains about a KH title being a spin is not a fan of dumb handhelds. Plain and simple.”

    Fixed.

  21. James Says:

    Am I the only one who doesn’t want pixar in KH??
    I love pixar…but i don’t think it really fits the atmosphere of kh..i can’t imagine Sora in Toy Story or Fining Nemo…
    It is time to bring Pocahontas to KH!!

  22. KingdomheartsFTW Says:

     really? i can. especially “a bug’s life”

  23. LordOne Says:

    Wow… that comment was equally stupid, unimaginative and clueless altogether. Respect.

  24. LordOne Says:

    If it doesn’t fit, find a way how it *does* fit.^^ I could imagine a Toy Story-based world as a wild west town made out of cardboards, plastic, lego, whatever… and with Andys toys as lifesized residents. (With Woody as the sheriff of course.^^)

    I don’t see how Finding Nemo could be included, too, but I’m sure there somehow is a way.

  25. Childrenofthekorn92 Says:

    You can’t expect that all fans will be able to buy 2-3 extra game systems just for KH…That’s not stupid/clueless, but it’s a valid opinion. And since when do I need to make a post imaginative?

  26. LordOne Says:

    You don’t have to, but you shouldn’t wonder at getting eyerolls with comments like that. XD
    And seriously, who *forces* you to buy new systems only to play the smaller KH-games? The only KH-games I ever bought are 358/2 Days and Re:Coded and I’m fine with that, cuz I can watch walkthroughs of the other games in the internet. Simple, legal and free. That works perfectly for me. All I want is the story and that way I’d even call myself an expert as regards the story of Kingdom Hearts. So, I don’t have to fuel some pointless hatred against SE, for developing their games on different platforms or reduce some of the minor jewels as “spin-offs”, while they are definitely *not* spin-offs. They don’t tell a spin on the story – they ARE the story, or at least a part of it. Period.

  27. Beatleboy_06 Says:

    for the last time there are NO spin offs in the KH series, do you people even know what a spin off is??? It has no and I repeat NO connection to the main series its like those mario kart games or mario party, EVERY SINGLE KH GAME IS IMPORTANT TO THE STORY!!!!!! Kingdom Hearts is way more than just 1,2 and 3 just because a number isnt pasted beside a title doesnt make it any less important. You have to play chain of memories and reverse/rebirth to understand why sora and riku are in the state they are in both Days and KH 2, you also find out who Namine is and the organization in COM, then you have to play Days to understand more about Riku, who Xion is and how Roxas ended up the way he did in the beginning of KH 2, you have to play BBS to understand how all this got started and heck it even shows how sora,riku and kairi got the power to wield the keyblade, you have to play coded to find out what was on the letter at the end of KH2 and you also find out Sora’s new mission in both 3D and KH3, and you have to play 3D to understand whats gonna be happing in KH 3.

    If anyone can play KH 1,2 and 3 without playing the other games, or watching vids of them or reading the plot and still understand whats going on I want to meet them.

    This new announcment may be KH 3, he said the next TITLE in the series is in development and the next title after 3D is Kingdom Hearts 3. HD remakes would not count as the series next title and he already said neither BBSvol 2 or KH3D FM exist. I say it will happen at the TGS this september since that will be the series 10th anniversary and we will have KH 3 by 2014.
