Oh, but they did mention the new character. They're calling her "Atarashi Koko," or "New Kid," and apparently she acts as some sort of guide.
(Personally, I think I'll keep calling her Live-chan.)
Hm, I should probably say something about Disney buying Lucasfilm, huh? Well, being the pessimist that I am, I wouldn't say that I'm thrilled, but I'm going to try and keep quiet until we actually see how they handle it.
(Also this makes it possible for Star Wars to be in Kingdom Hearts. Star Wars is veeeery popular in Japan...)
On to something else I hope to see in future Kingdom Hearts games: Wreck-It Ralph. I went to see it yesterday and was quite pleased. The movie plot itself was well-done, and they topped it off with hundreds of video game references and cameos. I'm sure I missed some, but I laughed at the ones I did catch--the entire theater roared to life when we saw the Konami Code. I can't say a whole lot without spoilers, but it's a great movie and I recommend you go see it.
Side note on Muramasa Vita: it looks like the new playable characters will have "new features," which I hope means new gameplay features. Definitely looking forward to this!
