Square Enix fans have been patiently waiting for new information regarding Kingdom Hearts III. The game turned up at E3 2015 this year in true gameplay form, but Square Enix and Disney have even bigger plans for it in August.
Disney Interactive has revealed its line-up of games for the D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, and guess which game appears with Square Enix acting as a special guest. Oh yeah, about time:
In the Hall D23 presentation on Sunday, August 16 at 11 a.m., fans won’t want to miss never-before-seen gameplay, trailers, new reveals and surprises from Disney Interactive’s most anticipated games. Among the games participating in the presentation are: Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition, Star Wars Battlefront from Electronic Arts, and Kingdom Hearts III from Square Enix.
Kingdom Hearts III
Square Enix will bring special guests and surprises to Hall 23 to reveal new information from Kingdom Hearts III.
Star Wars Battlefront
Electronic Arts will give guests an in-depth look at Star Wars Battlefront, the authentic Star Wars gaming experience coming November 17.
Pavilion guests will also be able to live out some of their Star Wars battle fantasies by going hands-on with Star Wars Battlefront.
Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition
Disney Interactive will showcase more Star Wars characters and Play Sets new to Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition and provide the entire audience with limited-edition giveaways exclusively for Hall D23.
Star Wars: Battle Pod
Fans can experience the latest arcade sensation from Disney Interactive, Lucasfilm and Bandai Namco Entertainment, Star Wars: Battle Pod. Featuring cutting-edge, arcade-style video gameplay, Star Wars: Battle Pod brings players right into the action with a totally unique experience featuring a dome-shaped screen, air jets, and rumble seat.
In the pavilion’s game lounge, fans can take a break from the show floor and try out the hottest mobile games including Star Wars: Commander, Frozen Free Fall, and LINE: Disney Tsum Tsum.
Obviously, Star Wars Battlefront is the other big fish on the list. As much as I’d love to see “never-before-seen gameplay” of it, my inner Square Enix fanboy is calling for my Kingdom Hearts III. I’m hoping we don’t get a retread of E3’s reveals. Let’s see something new!
Kingdom Hearts III will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with no release date has been set yet. D23 will run from Aug. 14-16.
