No this is not a drill… The Final Battle Trailer for Kingdom Hearts III is here! According to Tetsuya Nomura, Square Enix has decided to move up the schedule which is why the trailer dropped today.
There’s so much to digest from the trailer, but from my first watch (err… multiple watches), there are many clues as to where the story will go in the upcoming title. It does seem like the game will be a bit darker than the previous installments and especially so if that is Sora’s monologue at the beginning.
The trailer also confirms that Riku will be playable in Kingdom Hearts III, but no one knows whether or not he will have a side story similar to Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories or if he will be playable in certain parts of the story. Either way, I am excited to play as Riku!
Kingdom Hearts III will be released on January 29, 2019, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Also, if you are located around the Disney Springs area this holiday, or plan to visit the area, there is a Kingdom Hearts experience event that fans can attend and play a demo of the title early.
