I’m sad the journey is already over, but it’s been a hell of a time listening to this series. Can’t wait for a new game/series to be discussed, even if it’ll take 358 days.
That being said, there’s one major thing y’all missed when talking about KH3D- when Sora dreamdrops into The World That Never Was, he’s told that the Org 13 Nobodies were beginning to grow new hearts. This is why Roxas has a heart, despite being told that they could only get their hearts by creating KH2’s Kingdom Hearts. Xemnas knew this from the start, but had an ulterior motive- he was planning on the “13 norts” plan the entire time.
As Xigbar gleefully says, “I’m already Half Xehanort.”
Needless to say, this is where the term “norting” arrived, which I only learned from that Prozd video despite joining the fandom a couple years prior.
One last correction, that I’m going to try to keep back from explaining the entirety of the KH mobile game- you’re not time traveling to the future. Instead, MoM, with his future eyeball powers, was able to copy down the events of the future- a tale of Alice in Wonderland, the world of Agrabah during the events of Aladdin, the home of the 7 Dwarves, and other places you’d recognize. With this information, he’s able to simulate these worlds for the keyblade unions to explore and collect Lux. It’s also good to note that these worlds do not show the adventures of Sora or have members of the Organization, but you encounter heartless just the same (shoutouts to the Gaston heartless that is too rad not to be mentioned)
And where exactly do you get this information, or at least the suggestion that these worlds are not what they seem? Mission 319. Out of 800~. Yes, 90% of those missions are filler, but jeez I do not blame anyone for not dropping into that one (but totally should). I highly recommend the KHInsider playlist for all the cutscenes as seen in their original form
