Kingdom Hearts III opening movie trailer hints at the game’s story
Square Enix has released an opening movie trailer for the upcoming RPG Kingdom Hearts III. While it features no actual gameplay, it shows the beautifully rendered environments and characters for the highly-anticipated third chapter of the series. While it hints at what story the game will tell, it is light on the Disney characters — through a few do show up near the very end. You can check out the trailer in the post below!
Kingdom Hearts III tells the story of the power of friendship as Sora and his friends embark on a perilous adventure and support each other through difficult times. Set in a vast array of Disney worlds, Kingdom Hearts follows the journey of Sora, a young boy and unknowing heir to a spectacular power. Sora is joined by Donald Duck and Goofy, two emissaries sent by King Mickey from Disney Castle, to stop an evil force known as the Heartless from invading and overtaking the universe. Through the power of positivity and friendship, Sora, Donald and Goofy unite with iconic Disney-Pixar characters old and new to prevail tremendous challenges and persevere against the darkness threatening their worlds.
Confirmed new Disney and Pixar worlds set to appear in the game include the Kingdom of Corona from Tangled, San Fransokyo from the Big Hero 6, Andy’s Toy Box from Toy Story, and the world of Monsters, Inc. Realms set to return from the previous games include Olympus from Hercules, Yen Sid’s Mysterious Tower, the realm of Darkness, Twilight Town, and the Classic Kingdom.
Kingdom Hearts III will debut on January 25, 2019.
