Would you like it if Nomura drew inspiration from Game of Thrones for VersusXIII

I'm asking it because I just saw the Kingdom Hearts Remix 1.5 boxart

And Sora is seating in a motherfu**ing Iron Throne....of Keyblades, does this mean Nomura is a fan of Game of Thrones ?

Since Versus has a somewhat similar synopsis (kingdoms and nobles fighting each other for the crystal) I'd like to see some influence (not too much though).

One the one hand it's an awesome boxart - on the other hand it's a disgrace that they use a versus reference in the current state of the game...

It's not a reference to Versus, It's both a Reference to game of thrones, and a reference to an old art piece they made for KH1.

I dunno, I think it's rather striking.

Nomura always had a thing for putting his characters with cool poses on thrones, maybe he ran out of "badass" poses to use.

Made before the idea of versus was even conceived and was also used on the KH1 OST cover-------------> http://images2.layoutsparks.com/1/31592/king-sora-donald-key.jpg


The cover for 1.5 REmix is a remaking of the pic above and a reference to the Iron throne from game of thrones.

Dunno, maybe a bigger focus on political intrigue and expanded noble houses. We know there's Caelum, Fleuret from Tenebrae and W´white robed family from Niflheim, but I think it'd be lame if the Caelum family was only composed of the King and Noctis, (Ramza for example had 3 brothers) and I like my fictional nobles with big families where each family member is plotting something.
