At the Sony E3 Conference Monday evening, another teaser for Kingdom Hearts III was unveiled, this time focusing on the Pirates of the Caribbean world.
Captain Jack Sparrow is back, teaming up with Sora, Donald and Goofy, who, like in other worlds (e.g. Toy Story, Monsters, Inc.) now don era appropriate buccaneer attire. Sora also wields a new keyblade, now much different from the Follow the Wind in Kingdom Hearts II. Scenes in the video are replicated from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, the third film in the franchise, where Captain Barbossa, Will Turner, Elizabeth Swan journey to Davey Jones’ Locker to save a “dead” Captain Sparrow. Also revealed is a new battle function where Sora captain’s a full-on pirate ship and goes head-to-head in an all out sea battle, cannon’s blazing. Sora now can hitch rides on flying Heartless and skim colourful rainbow clouds over the deep blue sea.
Following the nautical clips were recaps of the Frozen, Tangled and Monsters, Inc. worlds and a reveal of some familiar Organization XIII members — Xigbar, Larxene, Axel and Xehanort. Kairi and Riku round out the end of the video, in their updated wardrobes.
Kingdom Hearts III has a release date of January 29th, 2019 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
