How Many Lucky Emblems Are Required To Unlock Secret Ending/Movie?
If you have selected the Beginner Difficulty Mode, then you will be required to collect/find 90 Lucky Emblems to unlock the Secret Ending.
For Standard Difficulty level, the figure is a little less, 60. For Proud Difficulty Level, you will have to collect 30 Lucky Emblems to unlock the secret ending.
We recommended you to select Standard Difficulty mode for your very first playthrough. You will be able to learn and master the controls quickly, and overall experience will be challenging but not too difficult.
Proud Mode is for those who are well aware of the Kingdom Hearts franchise. The enemies you will be facing in this mode will be tough to beat, but it is via this mode only that you will be able to unlock the secret ending quickly.
