To go with my new talk bubble I've decided to make new forum. So, what do you guys think? Is this game likely? Would Yen Sid be involved? Would it be awesome or would it suck? You decide.

If you mean the original Keyblade War, then no. Yen Sid would not be involved. It is already a far-off legend before Master Xehanort and Eraqus took on apprentices, and Yen Sid was one of their colleagues. I doubt it would be released as a game, either, because all of the characters would necessarily be new, and unrelated to the present characters in any way -- and the KH series is about exploring this web of characters and the people linked to them, not exploring the mythology. In fact, I think Crystal Chronicles and Tactics are the only FF series to focus on the worlds, rather than the web of characters, and even then they try to include as many cameos to link it as they can.

Past that, I don't think there's really that much story to tell. Everyone's living in a paradise, some people begin getting darker and open Kingdom Hearts, the worlds split and everyone dies. It would be even more of a pyrrhic victory than BbS was, and the size and remoteness of the conflict would make it almost impossible for there to be any important characters that could be relevant in a later game.

It might work as a novella or manga, though, just to explain what happened, and possibly, how it could be reversed.

I think it would be a mostly fighting game like dissidia or a like a "1 player mmo" where you pick a side at the beginning and be a warrior-eque keyblade wielder, mage-eque, etc. Although square's had some trouble in the past making KH fighting games...

TALK - That may be... however, what other choice might we have had?

Dissidia explicitly follows the existing web characters; it barely does anything but that. Doing a complete departure like this would require simply isn't what FF does with its series.

(wow you guys no how to put down a forum...) Anyway, forget I said anything about it being likely and talk about what it would be about, what the characters are like, and the whole thing about how Kairi's grandmother found out about it.
