whoa!!!! Sora is a final fantasy character? and that makes him suck? my mind was just blown by this guy ^


He means would you want three FF characters with relatively similar moves? Or a unique character? One is fine, I can deal with one of the three and by making sarcastic remarks without understanding a connotation doesn't make you look very clever.


im just confused on when sora became a final fantasy character???? I dont mind having several square reps...they own gex, tomb raider, final fantasy, kingdom hearts, and more. thats a lot of characters that deserve to be "all-stars"


Well the general style of the characters are almost identical gameplay wise and having both of them in the initial release would be pointless also it would seem like they would be almost clone like, a bit like Captain Falcon and Ganondorf, although they have small differences it wouldn't be versatile enough. Once again I'm sure he didn't mean it literally, guess it was just a jab at Enix.

Finally, someone gets it


Oh come on! Final Fantasy alone doesn't have the disney influence and KH has its own story. Since you broguth up FF though, I wouldnt not mind Cloud of Lightning because hey, its final fantasy and they are also in the JRPG genre. KH brings that out too but with other elements.

 

We need some rpg chracters and thats probably another reason why Sora is picked since Cloud or Lightning is not even on that particular list. I think Sora is a good pick to represent that style anyway though.

 

Disney has done partnerships with Sony in titles like LBP. Then Epic Mickey 2 is coming out if Im not mistaken. That would give a little shoutout to Disneys recent work right? As a move, minion, or something in the level.

 

Still, personally out of Folkflore, Finalfantasy, and KH., Id go with Sora. That's just me though since Im not to big on RPG besides nintendos Golden Sun series (I was hooked somehow to those GBA games. The graphics were pretty fun!)

Kingdom Hearts sold 17 Million worldwide... Crash has sold 50 Million buddy :smileyhappy:

Yeah I did just say Crash sold more than Kingdom Hearts because it did. Crash on the PSX has sold almost 7 million copies, Kingdom Hearts hasn't even broken 6 million. Crash's entire series has sold over 40 million while Kingdom Hearts has yet to reach 20 million... So Crash Bandicoot, on a sales point of view, is far more successful. Crash was also th unofficial mascot for the PS1 and is an iconic series in PlayStation history.

 

Crash is in a league Sora isn't even close to yet.

I don't think people realise that in his prime Crash was being compared to Mario, no other video game character, apart from Sonic, can claim that.

im just confused on when sora became a final fantasy character???? I dont mind having several square reps...they own gex, tomb raider, final fantasy, kingdom hearts, and more. thats a lot of characters that deserve to be "all-stars"


Would you want two characters that play almost exactly the same or two unique characters that are very different from each other?


what do you mean? sword characters can be different and unique. I dont get what you are trying to say at all because it makes no sense. have you played kingdom hearts and final fantasy? they are different in so many ways...

I'm saying that Cloud and Sora have the exact same abilities.

just one game of kingdom hearts or...? because the original crash trilogy didnt sell too well, it was like 5-6 million a copy at most. The newer games of crash sold a lot because people want to experience their past again, kingdom hearts isnt as old lol
