The publisher has also released some screenshots taken from the trailer and focused mainly on the world of Toy Story, not missing artwork and images taken from the battles of the character models of Sora, Goofy, and Donald Duck. Toy Story will be joining many new and returning worlds to be featured in the game, including but not limited to San Fransokyo (Big Hero 6), the Kingdom of Corona (Tangled) and Olympus (Hercules).
A new Kingdom Hearts III trailer debuted at Disney’s D23 Expo this weekend, revealing a range of details including a new world and release window.
As for the introduction of the Toy Story universe in the Kingdom Hearts lore, Nomura says it’s a moment he’s been hoping to see for a long time. Unfortunately the game is now set for a release in 2018, but the good news is that Square Enix and Disney have additional footage that they recently shared. Handheld gaming is big in Japan, so it seems like it’d be a good assumption that Kingdom Hearts 3 would sell well on the Switch. Woody and Buzz explain that Heartless materialized after their friends vanished and say that “Andy and the others went MIA”.
It appears like the gamers are in for a pleasant surprise; at least as far as the “Kingdom Hearts III” game is concerned. Gameplay shows the gang fighting their way through Heartless in Andy’s garden to get to Galaxy Toys.
The staff members on our development team always want to try something new, so even with previously introduced mechanics, they always try to make it their own or tweak it. Every decision was done by Square Enix. “I don’t think we’ll be keeping any worlds secret until the game is released”. You can see screenshots from the level in the gallery below.
That of course begged the question: Are they already planning downloadable content for Kingdom Hearts 3?
Nomura also spoke to IGN about the possibility of Kingdom Hearts III coming to the Nintendo Switch.
