Lovers of Disney/Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts series recently got another piece of information concerning the highly anticipated “Kingdom Hearts 3.” This news came straight from the mouth of Tetsuya Nomura, the director of this latest RPG adventure.
Nomura told reporters that Sora, the lead character in many Kingdom Hearts games, will have increased “maneuverability” in “Kingdom Hearts 3.” He went on to say that gamers will be able to jump, fly, and run around worlds that have more space than the preceding titles.
Gamers have nothing to fear, Nomura said, about the game’s development at the moment. Apparently everything is going very smoothly at Square Enix’s studio at this time.
Since next year is the 15th anniversary of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, gamers can expect more specific information then concerning different worlds, weapons, and possibly a release date for this new game. Nomura only said that next year would be a big year for people waiting for “Kingdom Hearts 3.”
Many gamers are hopeful that next year’s conference will clear up a lot of questions and controversies swirling around this title. One of the main questions gamers have now is whether or not “Kingdom Hearts 3” will be released in an episodic fashion rather than as one full game. There have been many Kingdom Hearts fans spreading rumors that this game will only be one part of a longer series, but these rumors have yet to be substantiated.
Of course, gamers want an official release date for “Kingdom Hearts 3” as well. While many people believed this title would be released in 2017, there are now many more people online who believe that 2018 is more realistic.
Nomura and other Square Enix officials are also still highlighting the importance of the game “Kingdom Hearts 2.8,” which will be released before “Kingdom Hearts 3.” “Kingdom Hearts 2.8” is supposed to be integral to understanding the plotline of “Kingdom Hearts 3.”
Although there are still many doubts, there are five things gamers can be sure about concerning “Kingdom Hearts 3.” Square Enix has confirmed five worlds that will appear in the new game. These worlds include Mount Olympus (based on Disney’s “Hercules”), Twilight Town, Kingdom of Corona (From Disney’s “Tangled”), San Fransokyo (from Disney’s “Big Hero 6”), and Mysterious Town.
As of today, it is expected that “Kingdom Hearts 3” will be released for both the Xbox One and the PS4 in either 2017 or 2018. Gamers will just have to wait till this hallowed conference next year to get more information on the worlds, plotline, and release date for “Kingdom Hearts 3.”
