A few days ago I wrote about 8 worlds I want to see in Kingdom Hearts 3, and you can find that article here. Today, however, I will be covering 8 worlds I don't want to see in Kingdom Hearts 3.
Wonderland- Alice In Wonderland
I don't think there is a world I despise more than Wonderland. The game has somehow managed to get itself into five of the nine installments in the series so far, not including re-releases. Beyond the story in the world being awful each and every time it's represented, I've never been a big fan of the original movie either. I found it's inclusion in the original Kingdom Hearts mildly amusing, and agonizing in every installment after that.
I'd like to start off with saying that, unlike Alice in Wonderland, I really enjoy Aladdin, it's one of my favorite Disney movies and it will probably stay in my top five for a long time, but at this point the world, much like Wonderland, is overdone. Even though there is still one more film from the franchise to use story-wise, King of Thieves, it's not worth it to me, because it would be taking a spot from one of the new worlds that I really want to see.
Deep Jungle- Tarzan
Much like Aladdin, I also like Tarzan, it's not a favorite but it's fun to watch every now and then. But I don't want to see this one-time world back because there's no more story to tell, and the world, while aesthetically pleasing, was a mess to navigate in Kingdom Hearts. While I wouldn't be as upset with this world's inclusion compared to other worlds (read: Wonderland), I still would rather see another world instead.
Atlantica- The Little Mermaid
Suffering the same fate as a lot of other worlds on this list, there's just no more story to tell in Atlantica. Sure, there's the sequel with Ariels daughter, but being as the film was straight-to-video release, not many people will recognize the character, and those that do won't think much of it. Not to mention the mechanics in Kingdom Hearts were difficult to use here, and its representation in Kingdom Hearts 2 wasn't exactly a fan-favorite.
Hundred Acre Wood- Winnie The Pooh
I love this world, I really do. The mini-games are fun and it's nice to take a break from fighting heartless to play around with Pooh and his friends, but what more is there to do in the world? Add to that the other movies that haven't been represented, but still offer great mini-game potential! Like Deep Jungle, I wouldn't be furious if we saw this world again, but it's certainly not my first choice.
Port Royal- Pirates Of The Caribbean
I love these movies for the most part, but the inclusion of Pirates in Kingdom Hearts 2 was awkward to me. Sora, Donald, and Goofy didn't blend into the world like they usually do, and that really hurt my opinion of the world. The gameplay here was fun, and it was a pretty solid world, but it didn't blend well with the rest of the characters, or the game in general. Overall I'd just much rather not see this world return in Kingdom Hearts 3.
Deep Space- Lilo And Stitch
I love Lilo and Stitch, and the inclusion of this world on this list isn't so we don't see our favorite alien again in Kingdom Hearts 3, but rather because the films representation would be better in Hawaii, not Deep Space. If we saw Deep Space again I would be genuinely angry and disappointed, because we've yet to see Sora and pals meet Lilo, or explore Hawaii, which I personally think they would blend in perfectly to, unlike some other worlds on this list (read: Port Royal).
Following suit of worlds I don't want to see, but films I do, Monstro was featured in Kingdom Hearts, and Chain of Memories. The thing I remember most about this world is not being able to land there, which was incredibly annoying when that's the only world you need to finish at that point in the game. On top of the whole space whale thing, Pinocchio was also much better represented in the form of Pranksters Paradise in Dream Drop Distance, which would be a better choice in my opinion to see return, rather than Monstro.
Well there you have it! 8 worlds I do not want to see return in Kingdom Hearts 3. Do you disagree with me on any of these? Are there other worlds you don't want to see back? Let me know in the comments!
