Pirates of Caribbean returns to Kingdom Hearts III

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.

Disney’s Frozen appears in new Kingdom Hearts III trailer

With a little over day to go before E3 actually kicks off, Square Enix has been busy releasing more details about Kingdom Hearts III; there was the official launch date last night (it’s January 29th, 2019) and now a new teaser featuring Disney’s Frozen.

Sora, Donald and Goofy journey to Arendelle shortly after Queen Elsa condemns the Scandinavian nation to eternal winter. After seeing the queen dash across the fjord, they meet Anna, Krisftoff, Sven and Olaf trudging through the newly fallen snow to find Elsa. Sora can now snowboard thanks to Goofy’s shield, which is large enough to hold himself, Goofy and Donald for quick trips down the mountainside. Elsa’s abominable snow beast, Marshmallow, also makes his début, adding to the throngs of Heartless created by the darkness.

In addition to the frozen world of Arendelle, the video includes scenes from the worlds of Tangled, Monsters, Inc., and Hercules. Of course, at the end, Aqua briefly appears, her now yellow eyes, glaring at us as the Kingdom Hearts III logo fades in.

Square Enix lets fans play demo of Kingdom Hearts III

Square Enix hosted a Kingdom Hearts III premiere in Santa Monica, California giving fans and the media a chance to try out the upcoming title. Staff who worked on the game were in attendance to speak to the crowd, while guests could sample cerulean-hued sea salt ice cream and snap selfies holding full-sized keyblades.

Two playable levels, Mount Olympus (from Hercules) and Toy Box (from the Toy Story franchise), were enough to satisfy cravings for this hotly anticipated title, but to also show off some of the unique mechanics that were developed to include more action and excitement. Development staff, including Executive Producer Shinji Hashimoto, were on hand to discuss some of these features.

Reception from those who played the game were positive, many enjoying the familiar menu commands, and added functionality of switching between two keyblades using the D-pad, keyblade transformation, Shotlocks, Attractions, and Links. Sora’s keyblade can transform and increase its attack depending on the world. In Toy Box, the Hyper Hammer can strike enemies quickly with a powerful punch; whereas Twin Yo-Yos can reach out and deal some serious damage. Shotlocks allows Sora to lock on and track multiple enemies at once. Using a specific combo, he can then hit each target sequentially. Attractions are similar to the rides found at Disney Parks around the world: Big Magic Mountain is a rideable train that chugs up and down like a roller coaster, akin to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Walt Disney World, except it launches explosive fireworks (something that doesn’t happen on the real ride). Finally, Links (formerly Summons) allows Sora to call forth other Disney heroes to help out in battle. Ralph, from Wreck-it Ralph, jumps into the fray and can build walls with cannons to take out any enemies in their line of fire.

Kingdom Hearts III keeps getting more beautiful with a new trailer

In the days leading up to E3, Square Enix has tossed us yet another tantalizing teaser of a video for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III. This latest clip shows just how much work the developers are squeezing into this title; another video is expected on July 15th, 2017 during D23 Expo 2017, including a peek at a new world.

Sora dives into Olympus from the movie Hercules and instantly engages swarms of heartless, being able to lock on to multiple enemies and unleash a devastating attack. The battle with Lythos, the colossal rock titan, takes place under pouring rain where the water flows down the sheer cliffs akin to tears of joy. The graphics have gotten smoother, looking almost cinematic where the characters in the cut scenes are in focus while the backgrounds are softened. The user interface remains the same as in previous games, utilizing minimalism styles to focus on the action.

Unsurprisingly, a release date for Kingdom Hearts III was not mentioned in the video.

Still no Kingdom Hearts III launch date

Following the announcement of Kingdom Hearts III, there has been a lot of speculation as to when the Disney and Square Enix title would be ready.

In an interview between Square Enix executive Shinji Hashimoto and IGN last September, there was the thought that the game could launch as early as 2015. Designer Tetsuya Nomura has been involved with both Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III, but considering that both are highly anticipated titles, Square Enix is going to pull out all the stops to ensure they are perfect before release.

However, that didn’t stop online giant Amazon from posting a tentative release date of December 31st, 2015 on their Kingdom Hearts III product page. It’s possible someone in Amazon’s merchandising team knows something the rest of us don’t.

Kingdom Hearts III will be available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

New Kingdom Hearts III clip

D23 Expo Japan is underway and Square Enix has capitalized on this event to unveil a 96 second clip of the in-progress Kingdom Hearts III.

While there is still a long way to go before the game hits the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, this video provides a glimpse into what we can expect. Sora now wields a transforming keyblade which can fire projectiles and can also summon rides from Disney Parks — notably the Pirate Ship and the Big Magic Mountain Railway. Additionally, Sora can even use these summons as a platform to launch additional attacks on bosses. As this only a demonstration, expect the techniques, visuals and functionality to change as Kingdom Hearts III is still early in development.
