We're playing as Aqua (Most likely Riku considering the plot, but I want it to be Aqua since she's best character even though 0.2 is KH3's prologue.) again.

It's reasonable to just expect Dragon Quest and some spin-off level game on Switch from SE. Anything else should come as a surprise.

^ Yeah here's to hoping it's Riku. I know 0.2 is KH3s prologue but I don't think we'll play through that part again at the start of KH3. It still can very much be Aqua though.

I mean I've dreamt about KH3 for so long, in my perfect world with a perfect KH3, we'll be able to play as a plethora of characters, namely spoiler[the Seven Guardians of Light.]

I'll be honest. I really hope its Kairi. We've been able to play either as or with almost all the other characters by now and she's got precious little time on the screen, even though she's an important character.

Given all the new developments at the end of 3D and then in 0.2, I feel that if we get to play as her, it's going to be a great way to develop her character and give us a new look at the world from her perspective, with her time in the spotlight Very Happy

I think it'll be Kairi as well. It would make sense, since she and spoiler[Lea are training together with their Keyblades.] It'll probably be similiar to KHII's prologue with Roxas, learning the basics and other information.

I've already seen the Toy Story world trailer, but I watched it again cause I'm that excited for it. Also, I need to catch up the the other KH games.

The entire purpose of 0.2 being taken out of KH3 (aside from the increased content in KH3) is to avoid KH2's prologue again (long prologue that ruins the pacing). KH3 begins immediately after the end of 0.2 as stated by Tetsuya Nomura. I'm referring to later on in the game in regards to Aqua.

0.2 is similar to KH2's prologue. We've already learned the basics, hence it also being a demo for the full game. KH3 begins immediately after 0.2.

Would be nice for Kairi to finally get some spotlight. I really hope she fights for herself this time instead of being kidnapped once again.

KH3D's secret ending already made a huge deal about Kairi learning to use that Keyblade she only used for exactly one scene in KH2. To not capitalize on this to the fullest extent would be foolish. Time to give Kairi her due, Nomura.

Couldn't be anymore foolish than making a bunch of spinoff titles that screws up the lore....or Kingdom Hearts 3 somehow missing the PS3.

If Kingdom Hearts III makes it onto the Switch, I'm definitely picking it up there...though if I do, I've got a LOT of franchise lore to catch up on. It looks horrifically complicated.

Say, was there already confirmation of a Frozen world? I'd be surprised if there wasn't such a thing in the game.

I don't believe Frozen has been confirmed yet. I think the only confirmed worlds so far are Toy Story, Big Hero 6, Mount Olympus, and Tangled, but I could be wrong. I would be pretty surprised if we don't get Frozen though, since they seem to be diving head first into Pixar content this time around. I'm just hoping we don't get Marvel or Star Wars...those would feel so out of place D:

I too am hoping for Kairi. Though I guess that's obvious.

Frozen isn't a Pixar movie, but regardless it would be surprising if Frozen didn't get in, considering it's by far the most popular Disney film from the past 20 years.

It'd also fit into the Kingdom Hearts premise and gameplay quite well and is popular in both Japan and North America. That, and the Disney executives would likely insist on one if there isn't. That's why I'd be surprised if there isn't one.

What do they do with the Disney worlds in the side games? Do they just reuse ones from Kingdom Hearts I and Kingdom Hearts II? Do they introduce any new ones into those?
