At the D23 Expo in California this weekend, Square Enix released a trailer for its upcoming RPG Kingdom Hearts III. The trailer shows a new world featuring an original story, and slated a release for 2018. The game will be released for the PlayStation 4.
The new trailer follows Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy to Andy’s room as they join Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Hamm, Rex and Sarge’s investigation into the disappearance of their fellow toys and Andy, and the emergence of the Heartless enemies in their world. Featuring an original storyline, fans will get a first look at the dynamic trio’s “Toy Story”-themed looks, all-new toys, such as the Gigas, and special Keyblades that transform and give Sora unique attacks to unleash on Heartless enemies.
“At long last, we are excited to open up the Kingdom Hearts universe to include the world of Disney-Pixar’s ‘Toy Story,’” said Tetsuya Nomura, Director of the Kingdom Hearts series. “I’m sure fans have been anticipating the inclusion of this world for many years. The narrative will be an original story exclusive to Kingdom Hearts III, and the gameplay will feel characteristic of the ‘Toy Story’ style and aesthetic. Please stay tuned for more details to be revealed soon.”
Kingdom Hearts III is slated to be released sometime in 2018 for PlayStation 4. Watch the trailer above, check out Patrick’s review of Kingdom Hearts 2.8 here, and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
