Now we’re talkin’, Square Enix! E3 2017 marks the most we ‘ve seen of Kingdom Hearts III to date with a brand new gameplay trailer featuring Donald, Goofy, and of course, Sora. A handful of other Disney villains show up too, but the true star here is the combat.
This trailer shows all the different styles Sora can use to wipe out the Heartless, be it with lengthy combos, a barrage of lock-on ranged projectiles, or all of the magical attack elements returning in full force.
Plus, the game just looks splendid. Square Enix is really getting as much out of the Unreal Engine 4 as it can with this game.
Looks like it’s time to get caught up
It’s strange to think about, but I haven’t played Kingdom Hearts game in over 15 years! My sole outing with the franchise was with the original, which I really enjoyed and farmed to the brink to uncover all the secrets, but once the sequel and spin-off games started steering in a different direction, I lost interest.
From what I’ve seen from Kingdom Hearts III, I think I’ll at least have to catch up on the second game, just so I’m not entirely lost in the canon if I do decide to dip in.
Kingdom Hearts III will be available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
