Sora is all grown in up Kingdom Hearts 3

Kingdom Hearts III will feature a more “mature” Sora, according to John Pleasants, co president of Disney Interactive. During an E3 2013 presentation about the future of Square Enix, a bit more information surfaced about KH3, including the fact that the team behind the PSP game, Birth By Sleep, is developing it.

The mythos of Kingdom Hearts is practically impossible to follow, but a press release about KH3 states that Master Xehanort intends to war with the “tyranny of light,” which sends Sora and company on a quest in search of the seven guardians of light and the “Key to Return Hearts.” So there’s that.

Far more exciting than the inevitably convoluted premise, though, is that KH3 will explore some new Disney worlds never before seen in the Kingdom Hearts franchise. Know what that means? STAR WARS. And very likely some Pixar planets, considering Disney now has a ton to choose from.

There was no mention about a projected release date, as KH3 is still in early development—but it will be coming to both PS4 and Xbox One sometime in the future.

    Xehanort, huh? Is he even mentioned outside of Birth by Sleep? Speaking of Birth by Sleep, it would be neat if the Crisis Core: FFVII-inspired ability fusion system makes a comeback, or that Monopoly minigame.

    I'd soil my pants if KH3 explores Aladdin.

    But he already did that in the first one. Or do you mean Fantastic Voyage into Aladdin himself?
  • PatHan-bHai - June 12, 2013 10:30 a.m.

    I mean a whole desert theme where we go through almost all of Aladdin's two movies.

    Ok you guys are missing the big picture... potentially Deadpool in a KH game... I want to see this corrected in future articles about KH3 :p

    As unlikely as Star Wars and Marvel worlds are Deadpool is even more unlikely. Plus they wouldn't be able to do him right in the Kingdom Hearts universe since it would bump up the rating.

    I can dream can't I lol
  • shawksta - June 11, 2013 11:17 a.m.

    Star Wars seems likely but it just feels weird

    LIGHTSABER KEYBLADES your argument is valid.
