Together we fight in new Kingdom Hearts III trailer
Square Enix has debuted a new Japanese gameplay trailer for the highly anticipated Kingdom Hearts III. The trailer shows off more of the worlds that we will be inhabiting come the game’s release. It reveals Sora interacting with some of our favorite Disney characters, including newer additions to the Disney franchise as the years have passed since the release of the second KH installment.
The graphics look amazing. As someone who attempted to play the first game month’s ago, I am most impressed by the graphics that we are seeing in the trailer below. However, I can’t speak much about the gameplay because that could be just as excruciatingly difficult and vexing as the first game was.
The official synopsis is 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.
