Fans of “Kingdom Hearts” got some more information on developments of the highly anticipated “Kingdom Hearts 3” at the 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Tai Yasue, the director of “Kingdom Hearts 3,” reported that Disney influences will be more pronounced than “Final Fantasy” characters or worlds in this new installment.
This RPG adventure game will follow a similar pattern to the original installments. Sora, Donald, and Goofy will once again travel to different Disney inspired worlds. Yasue confirmed that worlds inspired by “Big Hero 6,” “Hercules,” and “Tangled” will be in “Kingdom Hearts 3.” Many have also speculated that “Frozen,” “Toy Story,” “Star Wars,” and “Zootopia” will be in this new game.
It was also confirmed that gamers will once again get to play as Sora in this installment of the franchise.
Unfortunately, Square Enix did not release more information at the Expo. There was no update on an official release date for the game. Hopefully Square Enix will keep to their previous word and be prepared to put this game on the market in the winter of 2016.
Some people doubt whether “Kingdom Hearts 3” will be released this winter since “Kingdom Hearts 2.8” is slated to be released in December of 2016 for the PS4. “Kingdom Hearts 2.8” is described as a prologue to “Kingdom Hearts 3,” and Yasue said that it is impossible to understand “Kingdom Hearts 3” without having played this prologue.
