KH-Vids Podcast Episode #92: Kingdom Hearts Unchained

News in 'Community News & Projects' posted by Misty, May 20, 2015 at 3:25 AM (277 Views / 3 Likes)
This week @Misty, @libregkd, and @Calxiyn, along with staff guest @Karuta, host a very special guest for an episode where we at last get to talk about Kingdom Hearts! Hailing from the biggest Kingdom Hearts tumblr blog, F Yeah Kingdom Hearts Series, as well as KH Decoded and KH13, @Toominator joins us to cover all the recent announcements surrounding the upcoming smartphone port of Kingdom Hearts X[chi], Kingdom Hearts Unchained X[chi].

We discuss the presence of microtransactions within the otherwise free-to-play title, hoping for a system similar to Final Fantasy Record Keeper or some kind of cosmetic shop for the player's avatar. We also speculate on whether Unchained will be our only Kingdom Hearts release for 2015, if we'll see HD Remixes on the PS4 (with the possibility of a bundled Dream Drop Distance?), and address the harrowing question of do I have to actually play it? (Spoiler Alert: Yes!)

As per usual, we take user-submitted questions! @Sice has our guests turn into superheros, @Hayabusa asks us to throw down, @Karuta turns our hometown into a Kingdom Hearts III world, and we chat way more about music than is probably appropriate. We also plug our E3 coverage plans, which we hope you all will be excited about!

Please support and participate in the KH-Vids Podcast by leaving us a comment, answering our user-submitted questions, submitting to be a guest, or sending in questions of your own -- and have a Kingdom Hearts day!
