The trailer below is filled with gameplay and story details that will make any Kingdom Hearts fanatic start shaking with excitement. Its spectacular visuals don’t outshine the direction the developer took when creating one of the most highly anticipated games of the decade.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Final Trailer


Overall the trailer indicates Kingdom Hearts 3 will be the darkest, grittiest Kingdom Hearts to date. It looks as though the series grew up as their original audience became adults.

The excitement doesn’t end with the english version of the Kingdom Hearts 3 Trailer, there is also a Japanese version. It includes the Japanese soundtrack and voice acting. Anyone that wants as much Kingdom Hearts 3 as possible before 2019, the Japanese Kingdom Hearts 3 Trailer is below.



Being the last part of the Kingdom Hearts Trilogy, it will be the end of Sora’s adventure. All the characters that play a vital role in the main story show up in the trailer. Just from the short, three minute and forty-one second trailer is extraordinary and there’s no telling to what lengths the game creators went in order to send Sora off. With over 10 years since the second installment, anything less than an unforgettable, larger-than-life conclusion would be a massive disappointment.

Kingdom Hearts 3 will take place after the latest Kingdom Hearts title, Birth by Sleep. To catch up on the story and get ready for January 29th, the entire playthrough of Birth by Sleep is available below.

Monsters Inc, Frozen, Toy Story, Winnie the Pooh, Pirates of the Caribbean, the list goes on. Disney had years to create new stories and the partnership between this world-renowned multinational media and entertainment conglomerate and prominent developer, Square Enix is ready to bring those tales to life once again. Disney already takes imagination and puts it on the big screen, however, melding these narratives together elevates the entire experience. All the new characters, environments, and adventures are sure to resonate with audiences all over the globe.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Release Date Announced 

After over a decade of anticipation, Square Enix finally set a release date for the long-awaited game, Kingdom Hearts 3.

The third game has big plans to expand the scope of the universe and prove that they still have what it takes to blend eastern and western characters. Kingdom Hearts 3 will release on both the Xbox One and PS4 on January 29th, 2019. Immediately following the announcement, Square Enix revealed a new trailer for the game during Microsoft's E3 press conference.

The World is Stunned

Many were shocked at the sudden nature of this announcement, with the official Kingdom Hearts Twitter account revealing the release date with no build up or celebration on the first day of E3 2018. While fans of the series are aware that Kingdom Hearts 3 has been in development for years, series creator Tetsuya Nomura said at last year's D23 event that the game's release date was planned for 2018. During a fan event for the game in May, he had announced that a final release date for the game would be made public very soon.

Fans can still expect to visit Disney themed worlds throughout their journey to save the universe from being consumed by darkness. Although, this time around Pixar is making their debut in the beloved series. As of now, Square Enix confirmed that Frozen, Tangled, Big Hero Six, Hercules, Toy Story, and Monsters Inc. levels are all present in Kingdom Hearts 3.

Keep Those Fingers Crossed

Hopefully, this will actually be the final release date for the game. With the amount of gameplay and details the developer has revealed, people have high hopes it will happy. Everyone at Gigamax Games is big fans of the Kingdom Hearts series and plenty of coverage for the game is on its way as the release date draws closer.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Review

Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

It’s been 12 years since the last core Kingdom Hearts game. Finally, Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue feels like the last stepping stone before the third entry. 2.8 is another uprezzed collection much like Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5 but misses out on not including a game from the main series. This time around players are given Dream Drop Distance (the 3DS game), Birth By Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage (a short section from the PSP game), and a collection of cutscenes from the mobile title Unchained x. While there is plenty of content, it is nowhere near as substantial as the prior remasters but manages to remain fun with what is delivered.

Developer Square Enix put a lot of work into making the old 3DS title, Dream Drop Distance work on the PS4. Playing the game feels way more comfortable on a Dualshock controller then it did on the clunky 3DS gamepad. The combat flow feels smoother and getting invested in the worlds is easier when you can see everything that’s going on. That being said, this is still an apparent 3DS port. Touch and motion controls were a big part of the title and they don’t always translate well to the PlayStation. The game also plays differently than a core Kingdom Hearts so newcomers beware,this is not a traditional Kingdom Hearts experience.

Sora and Riku: Dynamic Duo

Dream Drop Distance relies on a gimmick that has the player switch between controlling Sora and Riku. A drop meter is added underneath the health bar and when the automated timer runs out the player is forced to switch to whichever character they were not using. Seeing the two heroes stories develop simultaneously is entertaining, but the invasive drop system ruins the experience. Once the drop timer runs out, no matter where you are or what enemy is being fought the game force switches your character. I had too many instances of long boss encounters having to be restarted because of this new system. Also gone is the traditional buddy system. Sora no longer fights alongside famous Disney characters. New to the series is the spirit partner system that has players create pets based on the enemies you fight. Using these new partners, our heroes are able to utilize spirit link attacks that let Riku fuse and Sora combo attack with their respective monsters. These new abilities are fun to use but only add to the chaos of the combat system which sometimes feels a little too hectic.

Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage

The next entry available to players is “Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage.” This snippet of the PSP game Birth By Sleep has been completely remastered in the Unreal 4 engine. The new style is a first glimpse into what Kingdom Hearts 3 is going to look and play like. The combat is fast and fluid and the story gives a good impression of what’s going on in the events right before the third core game. Aqua is an awesome hero and the new option to customize your character’s appearance is an entertaining distraction. The only downside to this experience is that it is not terribly long. I managed to complete 0.2 in 2 hours 45 minutes on normal difficulty, albeit without finding a ton of the secrets that the game has hidden. This small section of gameplay leaves you wanting so much more, but unfortunately that is still a ways off.

Overall Kingdom Hearts 2.8 is a welcomed addition to the series, but at the end of the experience it only leaves a desire to play the main games. This title is a treat for fans who need something to tide them over while waiting for Kingdom Hearts 3. Newcomers to the series will be left confused and should wait for the re releases of 1.5 and 2.5 on the current gen consoles before sinking money into 2.8. If you’d like a look into what the game looks and plays like, we have a Let’s Play at the bottom of the article that will give more insight into the game.
