Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV, quite possibly the greatest release date spectacle of our time, is almost upon us! It's therefore rather fitting that we have a podcast dedicated to its potential awesomeness.
Darryl is joined by Lauren and Jared to discuss everything Uncovered, from potential release dates through to other surprise announcements we feel they might ping out way.
We also delve into all the recent Final Fantasy XV news that's cropped up in the last week or so and there have been some interesting nuggets involving Cactaurs, Airships and languages.
It makes for another action-packed show and hopefully it's enough to tide you over before the craziness of Uncovered starts!
For this episode of Kingdom Hearts Union, Branden is joined by Churro and Sabrina as they talk about how the Kingdom Hearts franchise talks about death. It was a subject suggested by community member Tigercrane, who also joined them on the show to talk about it!
In addition to this, other discussions relate to Axel's keyblade and there's further debate about when exactly the crew think Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 will release this year.
It might therefore sound like a bit of a short episode, but it very much isn't! There's plenty to discuss and there's also a fun music segment at the end which we hope you all enjoy.
Nobuo Uematsu decided to depart from Square Enix some time ago, but for this episode, Darryl and Lauren discuss whether or not it has affected the franchise in a big way. It makes for actually a rather long topic of conversation, so hopefully you enjoy it!
We also have another Patreon supporter on the show in Barry Norton. He's another one of us British folk and it's great to here his thoughts on the franchise at the moment and how his opinions have changed about certain games over time.
Last, but not least, we have some questions from the community. These relate to another potential Chocobo Racing title and whether or not the direction of a sequel can hinder the overall experience created.
With this saga set to end with Kingdom Hearts 3, the main focus for the 91st episode of Kingdom Hearts Union relates to who the new villain will be in future titles!
This was a topic suggested by two community members and Branden is joined by Churro and Sabrina to discuss who will be replacing Ansem, Xemnas and Xehanort.
Additional topics this episode relate to an ideal length of game for Kingdom Hearts 3 to be and whether or not mechanics related to buying items from shops should be altered for the next major iteration in the Kingdom Hearts franchise.
With renewed interest in Final Fantasy VII thanks to the remake, our featured topic this episode relates to whether or not there's the potential for the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII to continue.
It's a topic that was suggested by a community remember, in specific reference to the secret movie that appears at the end of Dirge of Cerberus. It was heavily hinted that there would be another game featuring Genesis Rhapsodos and Weiss the Immaculate, but nothing ever appeared. Could success with the Final Fantasy VII remake change this?
As additional topics, we discuss Record Keeper and also discuss the ifs, buts and maybes relating to if Square Enix decided to venture back into the realm of movies. Oh, and we have a super special guest this episode in the form of Patreon supporter Christian Burge, who talks about his Final Fantasy story!
