Very interesting direction they’re taking this. Wonder if this is the new standard look or just for that world? Here’s hoping they have a more sensible story with the Ansem stuff done and explore reimagined prior worlds instead of just Pixar-esque ones!
I think it’s the new standard, the same world was present in KH3 DLC content without change. I’m curious where it goes to next, definitely looking as if it’ll be leaning towards a more Final Fantasy style of play/story.
