The last Kingdom Hearts III trailer ended with a promise that a brand new trailer would come today during D23, and it was as exciting as we could have imagined!
Toy Story is finally coming to Kingdom Hearts! Not only is a Toy Story world something I’ve thought would be cool ever since I became a Kingdom Hearts fan, it also looks fantastic.
Plus, since Sora is battling alongside Donald, Goofy, Woody, and Buzz, it looks you’ll be able to have at least four companions in Kingdom Hearts III!
And it seems to have a new story instead of following one of the movie plots… Since we already know the Big Hero 6 events take place after the movie, does this mean Kingdom Hearts III’s worlds will have original stories tied into the main plot again, instead of rehashing the movie plots? I hope so!
Now, anyone who talked to me also knew the one thing I really wanted from this trailer was more Xehanort, which is pretty much what I always want from Kingdom Hearts. And it had Xehanort!
Young Xehanort, to be specific.
He talks about darkness, a very Xehanort-y topic, and I’m excited to find out what he’s looking for in the Toy Story world.
Finally, the trailer ended with a release year at last… 2018! Yes, in case you were afraid we’d have to wait until 2020, Kingdom Hearts III is coming out in 2018!
As you can tell, I’m pretty excited about what we saw today. Let me know your thoughts on the new trailer in the comments below.
