Ah..KINGDOM HEARTS III which is fast approaching! I can hardly believe it. I did the first when I was at the colleague, the second in high school, then all the opuses without exception no ... one of the biggest sagas of the video game that has emancipated from Final Fantasy to develop its own universe! Play KH is only happiness.

Found a translation for the dialogue:


I've had a theory about the end of KHIII since... well, finding the Xehanort Reports in BbS, and this suggests it might come to pass.

Given the concept that opening Kingdom Hearts allows a person to remake the world, I thought it would be a very Nomura thing to do to have literally everyone but Sora sacrifice themselves to allow him to succeed, then have Sora remake the world to bring everyone back. Considering the dialogue in that trailer...

Somewhere in the lower half of the 80s, as for the exact number when all the reviews are out? I'll say 85.

The one positive I'm sure will be mentioned a lot will be that "it's pretty fun to play" with the story being something that people more invested in the franchise will have enjoyment.

The game sold 610,077 units on its first week in Japan
https://twinfinite.net/2019/01/kingdom-hearts-3-resident-evil-2-media-create/

For comparison, this are the first week sales of other notable PS4 games:

#1 Monster Hunter World - 1,350,412
#2 Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age - 950,338
#3 Final Fantasy XV - 716,649
#4 Knack - 322,083
#5 Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain - 315,288
#6 Persona 5 - 268,320
#7 Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below - 255,292
#8 Resident Evil 2 (Remake) - 252,848
#9 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - 233,762
#10 Resident Evil 7: biohazard - 231,188

This would make KH3 the forth best FW seller on PS4.

Good data. Just goes to underscore how much bigger the western market has gotten this console generation.
