I know there was already a thread about the potential TWEWY sequel, but I figured there was enough new information to warrant a new thread. I'd link to the source, but there's scans present, so I'll just post the important stuff. (I apologize in advance if this was already posted)

- All the Disney worlds appearing will be new, and there will be new areas in existing worlds.

- This time Traverse Town is constructed around the reason that Neku and co. have come. He has been separated from his original partner Shiki.

- We’ll go into more detail about Shiki and the others in a follow up report.

- Concerning a sequel to The World Ends With You, there may be something going on. (Already touched upon in the other thread)

- The opening of this title will be in Xehanort’s point of view. Additionally, there will be a surprise unlike anything seen before in the last scene.

- The leveling up of the Dream Eaters is directly related to the growth of Sora and Riku. So far we’ve only seen 2 at a time in battle, but if you give it your all you’ll be able collect all the types.

- Nomura isn’t quite sure off the top of his head, but there are dozens of Dream Eater types.

- There will be multiplayer functions, we’ll explain more in a follow up report.

- KH3D is set to release Spring 2012 in Japan.

- It’s currently about 60% to 70% complete.

This game looks great! Hope it doesn't have as much slowdown as shown in TGS vids, though...

Multiplayer...meh. Especially on 3DS. And screw Xehanort.

More TWEWY cameos are welcome though.

It will probably be local multiplayer and it isn't anything new for KH if you played recent releases.
I know, it was a "meh" for me in BbS and 358/2 Days. Never have anyone to play with on handhelds. Not to mention multiplayer isn't something that I'm dying for when it comes to KH anyway.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

- SE expands KH by including characters from one of their most highest rated yet undersold games
- SE releases good games for phones
- SE releases new IPs on 3DS and Vita

SE receive my love for recovering and heading to becoming once awesome company it was

To be fair, TWEWY was kind of mind-screwy too if you didn't get all the secret reports.
It was a joke about how convoluted the plot is in the KH series.

Yes, but how about some HD games ;_;

Indeed though, better decision making lately. I might actually have to pick up a 3DS for this game eventually... Finally a KH that's not a big rehash of old assets. I guess BBS was fresh too, but again it was more of a side-story.

BbS was mainline game.

But let's not start this craziness.

All to be expected info aside from the Traverse Town/TWEWY bit, but still good to know.

To be fair, this is what they use to sell the game. I've seen GAF's excitement for KH3D increase so zetta much since the Neku revelation. It's all part of the marketing strategy.

Ignorant question: is the 3ds compatible with regular ds games? I am now interested in one and wouldn't mind playing TWEWY either.
Yup.

Opening in CG, please!
It's a main line game, of course it'll be CG. KH, KH2 and BbS had a CG opening.

My guess is that Neku and maybe a another TWEWY character or two have a very small side-story in Traverse Town which will act as a (non-essential) bridge to the sequel. But of course, for this to work, they'll need to reveal the sequel before or as KH3D comes out, so that people playing it and seeing these characters, know what's pointing towards.

I'm not one to overstate KH cameos or "what ifs," but it just seems like Nomura talking about it in this sense might give it some credence.

Time to make a suicide pact for getting this game. I need a 3DS first :L

Just watch the TWEWY parts from youtube if KH is that bad for ya :3.
I actually quite like the Disney fanservice too, plus the idea of playing a KH game with only entry-level knowledge of the other games sounds too stupid to not do

As someone who HATES Kingdom Hearts and LOVES TWENY I'm about as pissed as a person could be.
You're going to play a game you hate for a character cameo that will probably be less than an hour of the game?

Think about that.

Given the Dimension hopping that went on the Another Day scenario, I think they could probably get away with that without making it too ridiculous.

And that works out here seeing as Traverse Town acts as a meeting place for people lost between worlds (er, at least I think that was what it was).

But yeah, they could easily use this to make the sequel get more notice and sales, as odd as that is.

What if Traverse Town is
a sort of new game for them, as the dimension where the cast played in TWEWY?

a bit off topic, but I'm playing BBS right now, can someone answer this question during my terra playthrough
when terra got to destiny island and meet little riku, why did terra see image of older rikku and some other white haired dude? and rikku mention someone from destiny island that went 'outside', does that character have any importance and do we know who yet?

I'm not sure we are told who exactly it is but I think we are to assume the one
that left Destiny Island was Xehanort.

The white haired guy who left the islands was a young Xehanort (I'm pretty sure the very first scene in the game shows this too), and the cutscene mainly existed to show the similarities between the paths Riku and Xehanort took in life.
