Before I say anything else, know this, I do not like micro transactions. When it's for games that cost nothing like this one they're fine because it's supporting a good product that you play for nothing. They piss me off however when the micro transactions are the only way to progress in the game or when they're put in games that already has a selling price. The worst offenders being the Assassins Creed games, Destiny, Dead Space 3 and any other game I forgot to mention that has them. Now I could go into more detail but I'll instead point you in the direction of the voice of reason in a house of maniacs so he can tell you all exactly why micro transactions in $60 games is horrible and why nobody should support those practices.

|There's the Bear union Ursas, the Fox union Vulpeus, the Unicorn union Unicornis, the Leopard union Leopardos, and last is the Snake union (my Union BTW) Anguis.|
Each Union is trying to gather Lux, crystallized fragments of light to keep them safe from the forces of darkness and to that end players travel to different worlds and slay Heartless to collect Lux and preserve the worlds. Now those who are more familiar with the lore will ask. "Why are we going to these worlds and seeing King Mickey, Donald, Goofy and all the other characters if they aren't supposed to exist yet?" A legitimate question which isn't answered at this time. I do know the answer however, remember during the events of Coded when Maleficent mentioned a book of prophecies?
The theory is that the five Union heads are using the worlds depicted in the book to generate Heartless and thus Lux for their members to collect. Players can also use the power of the book to enhance their Keyblades with medals of characters that grant special attacks. Speaking of medals they're upgradeable and are split into three groups, power, speed and technique. The medal groups form a Rock Paper Scissors dynamic with certain Heartless being grouped into these groups and can take more damage from one group and take less damage from the group they're strong against.
