  • :( awww thats just like them to do that altho i don;t see much of a different since the ending is gonna be the same

  • Kinda predictable – but cool nonetheless. Not that it matters [to non-importers]. Given the fandom for KH, I trust a subbed version will be on YouTube in like…a week at least. :P

    • NoElixirs

      Yeah, it seemed obvious they were setting the episode up to be playable later (WoD).

  • BelmontHeir

    Sora needs to get off his duff and rescue somebody… ;)

  • rrw

    i am more interesting on her ZR instead the last battle when i see the picture


    • FHOIW

      Seriously, I was thinking EXACTLY the same

    • PersonaBull

      Aqua’s ZR is indeed glorious <3 Definitely the first thing I looked at when I scrolled down.

  • Guest

    They should stop mindscrewing with Western fans and add this as DLC on PSN later on

    • Obviously you know that Square Enix are oblivious when it comes to DLC.

  • 5 Bucks says the guy with Red eyes is somehow connected to Sora.

    In all seriousness, I can’t wait til this comes out. I’m pissed that SE would do this yet again, but I won’t be paying for it, so w/e. And after playing ReCoded, I think I have an inkling of what this is…

    Also, I wonder if anymore Pureblood Heartless will be revealed or if it’ll just be Shadows, Neoshadows, darkballs and/or Invisibles.

    • Yui

      Don’t forget them Darksides!
      Unless, of course, simply not having an emblem doesn’t make you a pureblood. =D

      And I totally agree on every other point, of course. =D

      • How could I forget Darksides!?

        • Yui

          I don’t know, man, I guess it’s easier than I thought to forget one of the core enemies of the entire series. ;P

          You remembered Invisibles, though, so I’m cool. Also, it’d be sweet if you shared your suspicions about Re:Coded somehow. I haven’t had opportunity to play it yet and I want spoilers now. =D

          • geez, I couldn’t respond for like 3 hours lol.

            To answer your question, without giving away any spoilers, a new type of enemy is revealed/hinted at in the game.

  • Falls into the world of darkness and fights a pair of mysterious red eyes…dude that’s so DMC3 (well, cept that in DMC3 it’s 3 red eyes not 2)

  • It’s too bad that I won’t get to play this. I really would like to see it in English. I’m sure I speak for a lot of fans. Le sad. Hopefully SE realizes that releasing it as DLC or even bringing this to Western fans would be profitable, and hopefully they don’t realize “oh, hey, they’ll be able to watch it on youtube like they’ve done withe very other game so far.” It really just isn’t the same as playing through an amazing game.

  • ninetailes4life

    Times like this I wish I was Japanese

    • YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE! :D the game comes with full english voices. so you’ll understand a large portion of the game.

      • Only the voiced parts, though. Unless one have a basic understanding of Japanese, equipping skills and fusion would be an arduous task

        • PersonaBull

          This is the cause of my dilemma. Though I’d sure learn the language pretty quickly out of necessity, that’s for sure.

          This is the first game I’ve seriously considered importing (since I’m usually a lucky American that gets a release anyway). The Final Mixes have always had extra content, but this one seems to take the cake in reasons to spend the money and stick out the language barrier with.

          You know, I wonder… Could you use the same save file from your US version? I figure it wouldn’t work nearly as easily as some would hope, and I’d start a new game if I imported the FM, but I did put quite a bit of work into those save files, so it would be nice to be able to use them.

          • Not to spoil your mood there, Persona, but I don’t think save files are interchangeable between regions… Had this problem with my PS2, and a recent example is Dissidia.

            I have JP Dissidia and EU Dissidia, but when I tried to use my JP save file for the EU version, it wouldn’t detect it ;___;

            I’m not quite sure about Final Mixes, but I assume you can’t use your US file.. I might be wrong, though

          • PersonaBull

            Haha, you’re not spoiling my mood. I’m assuming the same thing, actually. I just figured I’d put it out there, since it would be pretty awesome if it turned out you could use the save files for either version.

            Honestly, though, I wonder if you could even use your regular BbS JP save file with the FM version. That’s a bigger question that would pretty easily answer my first one :P

          • Someone with a Final Mix or Final Mix+ would be able to answer that question for you ^_^’

            Dammit I wish we could just download Japanese language packs to our brain for instant knowledge :

  • Waiting for YouTube video…

  • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

    Maybe it’s that first darkmonster thing that Sora fights in KH1. Did that have 2 red eyes?

    • Nah it’s not a Darkside, as we’ve seen Wielderless Keyblades one shot them befor. Whoever this new guy is, It’s WAY more powerful (Darkside’s are pu$$ies now, lol.). Of Course, it could always be a much STRONGER Darkside…

  • PersonaBull

    Like everyone else here, I’m pretty sad there’s no chance of playing through this without importing. Youtube it is…*sigh* I’m on such a borderline trying to justify importing this. There’s no modding involved like with the two previous Final Mixes (or getting an entirely new Japanese PS2) so it’s certainly easier, but I’m pretty short on cash and I can’t read Japanese…but I could always just wing it, since it does have English voices…

    Ugh! Decisions~!

    I surprisingly can’t say for sure what the red-eyed guy’s identity is, especially considering how long Aqua is in the Realm of Darkness.

    • Well, there was an English patch for the First one, I’m sure someone will make one for the FM version.

      • For a second there, I thought there was an English patch for KH:FM and KHII:FM+.


  • A secret episode? No surprise since Final Mix hates America.

  • raymk

    Yeah prodictable but i want it bad> You can never have to much aqua gameplay especially the world of darkness wahoo.

  • darkfox1

    cool Aqua gonna be Fighting Pure Breed Heartless in thr Realm of Darkness Awesome
