E3: Kingdom Hearts might have Pixar Worlds in the future.

Posted by sora_thekey (72 posts) -

If you've played Kingdom Hearts then you know that the levels or "worlds" are in fact Disney movies. Most people speculate on which world will be used for the various KH games and most KH fans have asked for a Pixar world for so long...
I mean imagine Sora entering a world where he is an action figure, Donald is a wind up toy and Goofy becomes a plushy in a Toy Story world. Or Imagine Sora and company becoming monsters and taking Boo on a wild ride along side Mike and Sully in a Monsters Inc world. Or maybe even have Sora become a moon fish, Donald a duck fish and ironically Goofy a cat fish in a Finding Nemo world.
 
Well Nintendo World Report reports that Tetsuya Nomura (creator of the KH games) is considering Pixar worlds for future Kingdom Hearts games, in an E3 interview.

“I am aware of the fan requests for Pixar characters,” said the Square Enix director. “I will do my best. Maybe one day Pixar characters will be featured in the Kingdom Hearts series.”

So what Pixar world do you want to see?

actually, that sounds pretty awesome because Pixar is pretty awesome

What with Epic Mickey, I've kind of lost all interest I had in future Kingdom Hearts games.

I'd say around Ratatouille Pixar started changing the tone of their movies in a way that the universes wouldn't really fit into some corny ass Kingdom Hearts game. So anything before that is probably fine. Finding Nemo would probably have some logistical issues and they can't exactly make it a singalong minigame.

god no
 
what next, miyazaki films?

You haven't played Kingdom Hearts, have you?

Sounds good, pixar have pretty rich worlds which would make for some interesting settings for a KH game.
 
 
On a side note:
Has kingdom hearts ever featured a Robin Hood world? (the one with the fox as robin hood)

Yeah I knew about a singalong minigame for Little Mermaid because I never played it, ass.

Fuck no. It's bad enough that they put classic Disney characters in such terrible games.

@Icemael:
Kingdom Hearts 1 was great man.... 
 
and to be fair it's not like Disney is doing any good with their own characters lately

I was specifically talking about the first game and its Little Mermaid world.  Please, don't call me that.  I was trying to make you remember the first game.  I don't treat people badly, and I hope you'll do the same.

Well now I just feel bad.

i think the whole reason why KH3 haven't happened yet is that Disney would rather have their own internal studio do it.
 
Sure the whole point of KH was "Squaresoft meets Disney!" 
but surely there's some Disney executive going "why don't we make it "All-star Disney!" so we don't have to share profit with those fuckers!"

#16 Edited by NathHaw (2799 posts) -
@ryanwho: It's OK.  I'm totally over it.
#17 Posted by ryanwho (12082 posts) -
@niamahai: And why should they with modern classics in their wheelhouse like, uh, Bolt?
#18 Posted by zander1123 (95 posts) -
@niamahai:   That would be correct if Square wasn't completely pumping out a million KH games a year. No, KH3 is going to happen, and it is going to be announced soon, more than likely TGS or through Famistu some time later this year or early next year, after versus is finished.

Hey Bolt was fucking awesome shut up! 
 
Seriously though Bolt was awesome.
#20 Edited by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

No I liked Bolt. But after over a decade of having Pixar's resources at their disposal, they have a grand total of 1 CGI film that anyone can remember. Mmm let's explore the Valiant universe.

'Eff that. I would rather they explore the 90's Disney cartoon universe.

I'm sometimes ashamed that I enjoy Kingdom Hearts.  
Every part that revolves around the non-Disney characters makes me want to club seals, kick puppies, stomp kittens or punch babies.

walll eeeee

#27 Posted by Toxin066 (3319 posts) -

I wouldn't mind so long as Pixar worlds are in KH3, and not KH: Spinoff

#28 Posted by Dauragon (554 posts) -

A wall-e world in Kingdom Hearts would kick amazing amounts of ass.  Monsters inc as well!

I'm the other way around, I just endure they quick retelling of disney movies to get to the story I really care about. Heck, if they just kept Donald, Goofy and Mickey I could care less if they scrapped the whole "go to different disney worlds" altogether.

Just make KH3 already, I don't care if it has ronald mcdonald and scooby doo just make it!!!

#31 Posted by TooWalrus (13255 posts) -

Haven't cared for Kingdom Hearts since the 2nd one... this doesn't change that. I'll probably play Kingdom Hearts III proper on the PS3 or 360, but until then I don't really care. What I like about the series is solely the cameos from characters from my childhood, not the fucking anime or the stupid keyblades and whatever. If this turns out the be the next game in the main series, I might check it out.

I'd rather see characters from The Disney Afternoon. Want to see Rescue Rangers, Tale Spin and Darkwing Duck worlds.

#33 Posted by Demyx (3237 posts) -

For some reason I keep coming back to Kingdom Hearts. Can't wait for the next console iteration.

Yeah really, its like Square want me to be embarrassed for ever liking any character they ever created. They're really daring you to like the game.
#35 Posted by sora_thekey (72 posts) -
@TooWalrus:  Technically the next game in the main series is Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep.... It ties directly into Sora Riku and Kairi's story..

Or Gargoyles

It was announced at E3 that the next one will be Kingdom Hearts 3DS for the, obviously, Nintendo 3DS
#36 Posted by Demyx (3237 posts) -

I usually skip the handhelds since i haven't bought one in 6 or 7 years. But I do plan on getting the 3DS, so I might actually pick this up. Otherwise, I just hope there is a PS3 release someday.

I'd actually like to see them use some of the TV shows Disney owns, animated and otherwise.  Off the top off my head, I'd really like to see worlds based on Talespin, Darkwing Duck, and the island from LOST.

Oh YES! Heartless and Nobodies would be an easier explanation for whatever is behind the mysteries of LOST...
