It makes sense that some things would get removed when you consider the scope of this game’s development.
At long last, after a very long development cycle, Kingdom Hearts 3 is now available. The game has been a very long time coming, even accounting for its official reveal—in 2013. Given the long development cycle, it makes sense then that some of what may have been shown off as a part of the game earlier is not in the final product.
It seems like dedicated fans are indeed finding numerous such examples of “cut content” in Kingdom Hearts 3, where things that were shown off in earlier trailers for the game are no longer in the final product. These include things like the Mysterious Tower, which is not an explorable location in the game, as well as sections of Twilight Town.
These omissions are bound to be disappointing, but given the scope and context of Kingdom Hearts 3’s development, as well as of the final product, it does make sense that not everything planned made it in.
