Kingdom Hearts III concluded the Xehanort saga but in typical Tetsuya Nomura style, it ended with fans having more questions than answers.
It seemed like more was intended for the base game and Re:Mind promised to shed light on the shocking ending which saw Sora disappear after rescuing childhood friend Kairi.
Many details were shared throughout the expansion such as how Ventus was reunited with Chirithy or how Lingering Will appeared to help fight against Terra-Xehanort in the Keyblade Graveyard.
Despite these questions being answered, a lot more new content was added.
This sent fans into a meltdown, as they frantically tried to unpack the myriad questions left untouched.
Begrudgingly, the ones accounted for were some that should have been answered in Kingdom Hearts III but ultimately do not aid fans in predicting the next chain of events.
Given that Nomura favours a smoke and mirrors style with storytelling, the tidbits on offer in Re:Mind do leave some room for speculation.
Considering Kingdom Hearts' track record with convoluted narratives, it isn't all too surprising to see so many left pondering what comes next in the series.
5. Does Ventus Have His Memories Back?
Seasoned veterans of the franchise who have played the mobile games will recognise Ventus as an ancient keyblade wielder.
He was among the second wave of Union Leaders who succeeded The Foretellers.
However, his earliest introduction was in Birth By Sleep in which he was completely devoid of his past memories.
In Union X fans learn about Ven's friendship with Chirithy, a character Sora befriends in the Final World in Kingdom Hearts III.
In the original ending cutscene the pair are reunited but it is only in Re:Mind the audience bears witness to Sora and Kairi returning Chirithy to the former Union Leader.
While it is a touching reunion, it still remains unclear if Ventus has regained his past memories and if he knows who he really is.
Begrudgingly, the final moments do not portray Ven's friends Terra and Aqua's reactions to the surprise return nor provide an indication on if they know about his origin.
