Kingdom Hearts III And Re-Mind [UPDATED]
Shortly after Master Xehanort's defeat, in order to save Kairi, Sora uses the power of waking to return to The Final World, where he meets Chirithy, who tells him he will disappear if he saves her. Determined to save Kairi despite the consequence, Sora is guided by Chirithy to the crack he made in time, who tells him he'll have to traverse the Guardians' hearts, seeing everything they saw and feeling everything they felt, until he reaches Kairi's heart. He begins by experiencing the doomed first version of the Seven Guardians of Light's battle with Terra-Xehanort as several of his allies, first as Ventus, whose heart he is forced from by an entity calling itself "Darkness", which manifests as Dark Inferno χ. After Sora defeats it, he enters Aqua's heart, but her fear and despair manifests as Anti-Aqua. After defeating her, he passes through the tear and into his own Station of Calling. There, he meets with Naminé, who says she's brought out Terra's strongest thoughts to aid them.
Kingdom Hearts III and Re-Mind
Sora jumps into Riku while he and the other Guardians engage in a battle with Replica Xehanorts. They're all sucked into keyhole-shaped portals except Mickey, during which Sora jumps into his heart, and he narrowly limps out of there and repels the replicas with Sora's help. Sora finds the remaining fragments and rejoins them by connecting to the Guardians' hearts. Kairi is restored, the Replica Xehanorts merge into Armored Xehanort, and she and Sora defeat it together, finishing it off with the Guardians' help. The Guardians notice Sora and Kairi's absence just before they open the way through Kingdom Hearts to join past Sora at Scala ad Caelum after his final battle with Xehanort. The pair then end up in The Final World, where they invite Chirithy to come home with them. They secretly witness the other Guardians' journeys home, bringing Chirithy to Ventus and Naminé's heart to her replica body. Finally, Sora and Kairi share a final moment sitting together on a paopu tree before he fades away.
At the same time, Maleficent and Pete are going from world to world in search of the Black Box; she believes that a book of prophecies is hidden away inside of it. The Organization is also looking for a "New Seven Hearts", which Yen Sid believes to be the next hosts of the seven pure lights after the Princesses of Heart were relived of that duty, sans Kairi, who maintained her status. Ienzo deciphers the data, which reveals three hearts are inside of Sora's own heart; they know one is Roxas, and a run-in with Vanitas has them convinced the second belongs to Ventus. Unfortunately, they are unable to create a vessel for Roxas' heart, as Vexen has rejoined the Organization to continue his research into the Replica Program.
The Guardians go to the Keyblade Graveyard, where the Organization sends waves of Heartless, Nobodies, and Unversed to wear them down, before Terra-Xehanort arrives and manages to take down Ven and Lea before Donald exhausts himself repelling him with his ultimate spell, Zettaflare. A giant tornado of the Demon Tide scatters everyone to other worlds for the Lich to steal their hearts, killing them off for good. However, Sora uses the power of waking to save them, but Young Xehanort warns there is a steep price for misusing that power as Sora has done to save everyone. Sora had also, unknowingly, violated the Master of Masters' prophecy regarding the outcome of the Second Keyblade War by preventing Master Xehanort from letting darkness win over light. The restored Guardians return to the graveyard, where they take on the Organization, defeating them one by one. Luxord, Marluxia and Larxene fade away; Luxord gifts Sora a special card. Dark Riku is defeated, with his vessel left behind for Naminé's heart to use. Xigbar falls into a ravine, leaving a cryptic message. Vanitas fades away for good, while its revealed Xehanort's guardian holds Terra's heart; Sora helps restore Terra to normal. Xion's heart takes control of the replica the past her is using, restoring all memory of her. Roxas revives, helping defeat Saix.
Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind is an additional package of downloadable content for Kingdom Hearts III. It consists of three different episodes that take place during and after the final chapters of Kingdom Hearts III, and focses on Sora as he traces the hearts of the seven guardians of light in order to save Kairi, as well as his friends' efforts to rescue him afterwards.
Sometime before his Mark of Mastery, Xehanort meets with an unknown being in a black hood. The mysterious figure asks him about his tour of the worlds, and Xehanort reveals he sees people who only pretend to live peaceful lives while their hearts are full of darkness. He concludes that, rather than allow people to be until their darkness consumes them, he would seek out and control darkness, and use it to bring about order to the World. The mysterious being encourages him to use his power to improve the world and, after revealing his name, leaves him with the words "May your heart be your guiding key."
Sora re-awakens just as his past self joins Aqua and Ventus to fight Terra-Xehanort and Vanitas. After Terra-Xehanort and Vanitas are defeated and Terra regains his heart, Sora helps Roxas and Xion regain their hearts as his past self, Kairi, and Lea face Saïx and Xemnas. Sora then traces Roxas's heart to help them reclaim from Xemnas the mark that was the foundation of their bond, the Recusant's Sigil. Sora finally joins Riku ans King Mickey as they face Master Xehanort, Xemnas, Ansem, and Young Xehanort. However, having followed only five hearts, Sora realizes he still needs to follow two more to get to Kairi. After Master Xehanort summons Kingdom Hearts, Sora decides to travel through Master Xehanort's portal to search for Kairi within, and arrives in Scala ad Caelum. He quickly tries to recover Kairi's heart, and finds five fragments of Kairi's heart before running into Master Xehanort. Xehanort reveals it is he who has hidden the fragments of Kairi's heart, and that there are two more. However, he also reveals to Sora that he is out of time, as his past self arrives in Scala ad Caelum to face Xehanort. 041b061a72
