Can you believe that the Kingdom Hearts franchise is now 16 years old? We can't either! And that's what we're talking about today as Branden is joined by Churro to talk about what it's like to have been a fan throughout the years.
The guys also talk about how their perceptions have changed over time, whether or not the wait has been worth it to see a conclusion to the Xehanort saga and where they want the series to go now!
And of course, there are the customary questions about all sorts of things, from Kingdom Hearts 3 appearing on Switch to some classic lore.
We hope you enjoy!
We've got a bit of a chance of pace this episode, as Darryl and Lauren talk through some pieces of Final Fantasy music that really resonate with them.
Each of hosts has to select four pieces of music that personify a game in the franchise, music that gets them pumped or psyched to experience it!
Outside of that, we're also looking at some of the recent news, such as Noctis appear in Tekken 7, Vayne arriving in Dissidia NT and some new board members at Square Enix!
With Final Fantasy XV receiving so much DLC, we turn our attentions to what this might mean for Kingdom Hearts 3. It's one of the main questions that Branden and Churro run-through this episode, which also features a ton of other discussions.
There's even more detailed analysis from the D23 Expo video, including some snippets from Nomura about the fact everything they've shown is still very much a WIP. We've also got more information on the Gummi Ship and some new details around the Tangled World!
And to round out the episode, we've got a question about Sora's changing hair colour!
There's going to be even more DLC created for Final Fantasy XV, but how do we feel about this - has it ruined the overall experience? That's one of the questions tackled by Lauren and Darryl in this episode, amongst many, many others!
We're also talking about classic Square/Square Enix franchises that could potentially be revived, what kind of remake we'd like to see for future Final Fantasy titles and flat out, whether or not we think they should just stop producing more content for Final Fantasy XV!
It makes for a rather interesting episode, with plenty of different points of view on display and it's all rounded out with a sweet guitar arrangement!
We hope you guys enjoy!
