Disney and Square Enix have revealed that Sora, Donald and Goofy will be travelling to the world of Toy Story in Kingdom Hearts III.
The new trailer was premiered at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California and marks the first time a world is based on a Disney Pixar film. when Sora and the gang enter Andy’s room they notice they’ve been shrunk – to retain the world’s order according to Donald – and the bedroom is littered with heartless.
“At long last, we are excited to open up the KINGDOMHEARTS universe to include the world of Disney•Pixar’s ‘Toy Story,’” said Tetsuya Nomura, Director of the KINGDOMHEARTS series. “I’m sure fans have been anticipating the inclusion of this world for many years. The narrative will be an original story exclusive to KINGDOMHEARTSIII, and the gameplay will feel characteristic of the ‘Toy Story’ style and aesthetic. Please stay tuned for more details to be revealed soon.”
Woody, Buzz, Rex, Sarge and Hamm all make an appearance, extending the hand of friendship to work with the heroes. This new world will feature an original story line set in the Toy Story world as well as special Keyblades which can transform and give Sora unique abilities.
“Featuring a brand new storyline that brings together beloved ‘Toy Story’ friends with the heroes of KINGDOMHEARTS, the ‘Toy Story’ world in KINGDOMHEARTSIII successfully mirrors the level of quality that we strive to achieve with every Pixar film,” said Jason Katz, Story Supervisor, Pixar Animation Studios. “KINGDOM HEARTSIII will undoubtedly be an experience that fans will not want to miss.”
Kingdom Hearts III is really shaping up to be a fantastic sequel, we really can’t wait to get our hands on it! Alas, we’ll need to wait until 2018 when the game will be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
