Kingdom Hearts III: Toy Story and other worlds revealed so far

Many of us were hoping to see an official release date for Kingdom Hearts III at D23 Expo.  Instead, a new world has been revealed.   Taking us right back to our childhoods and hitting us with the feels, a Toy Story world will be featured in the upcoming title.  The latest trailer shows Sora, Donald, and Goofy in Andy’s room.  They join Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Hamm, Rex, and Sarge in order to investigate the disappearance of Andy and the fellow toys.

“At long last, we are excited to open up the KINGDOM HEARTS universe to include the world of Disney•Pixar’s ‘Toy Story,’” said Tetsuya Nomura, Director of the KINGDOM HEARTS 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 KINGDOM HEARTS III, and the gameplay will feel characteristic of the ‘Toy Story’ style and aesthetic. Please stay tuned for more details to be revealed soon.”

“Featuring a brand new storyline that brings together beloved ‘Toy Story’ friends with the heroes of KINGDOM HEARTS, the ‘Toy Story’ world in KINGDOM HEARTS III successfully mirrors the level of quality that we strive to achieve with every Pixar film,” said Jason Katz, Story Supervisor, Pixar Animation Studios. “KINGDOM HEARTS III will undoubtedly be an experience that fans will not want to miss.”

Check out the latest trailer below if you haven’t seen it yet.

So far, this makes a total of six worlds we have seen in trailers and announcements. In Kingdom Hearts III we are certain to see the worlds of:

Andy’s Room – Toy Story

Kingdom of Corona – Tangled

Mt. Olympus – Hercules

San Fransokyo – Big Hero 6

Twilight Town

Mysterious Tower

What other worlds are you hoping get incorporated into the KH3 series? What has been your favorite world from the other games so far? I also noticed it looks like they might incorporate a lot of game play style used in KH 2.8.  What do you think of the gameplay revealed so far? Let us know what you think in the comments!

Kingdom Hearts III Screenshot looks alot like Final Fantasy VII

The Official Kingdom Hearts series twitter account pos a new screenshot of KHIII in commemoration of Final Fantasy VII’s 20th anniversary earlier today.

The image is in similar of Final Fantasy VII’s cover art, with cloud in front of Midgar, as seen below.

Earlier today Final Fantasy had a 20th anniversary announcement, so this fits right into everything from earlier today.

Thanks Square-Enix!

Kingdom Hearts III is in development for Playstation 4, and Xbox One.

Will we see Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII in 2017?

Will we see Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII in 2017? More than likely, not. According to an interview in Fanmitsu, the developers have stated “In terms of the state of development, there is still some way to go,” regarding KH3.  But what about FFVII? Developers they are making progress at the expense of pushing KH3 back. “I apologize that the wait will be be a bit longer for Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake. I am very sorry, but to that degree I will make a game that will meet your expectations…This year I want to show our progress at an event somewhere.” Progress? Not release?!  How much longer do we have to wait!?

While I am anxious for the release of both of the titles, I’m willing to wait for a quality game. Are you anxiously awaiting both of these titles? What do you think of all of these delay announcements?

By the way, can you believe it’s going to be the 20th Anniversary of Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy VII? Do you feel old yet?
