Even though there’s no definitive release date (or even a window) for Kingdom Hearts III, fans have been treated to new details and reveals within the last few months or so. First came the trailer from E3 to wet gamers appetites, and now from D23 (courtesy of IGN), we have a big reveal that’s sure to make many happy.
Big Hero 6, one of the big surprises in regards to recent superhero films, is coming to Kingdom Hearts III. This marks the second confirmed new world to be in the game, following the reveal of Tangled at E3.
“Big Hero 6 is such a special film for me,” said film producer Roy Conli in a special video shown to the audience at the Disney Interactive panel at the D23 Expo, “and we always made sure that each action sequence had a very special meaning. The themes in Kingdom Hearts and Big Hero 6 match very well. For instance there’s friendship, really important to both stories, and then of course light over darkness.”
It’s been confirmed that Baymax will be a playable character in the party for Sora in the Big Hero 6 world. Also, this world will continue from the events of Big Hero 6. Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto stated that there would be a corrupted version of Baymax’s old body left behind in the portal near the end of the movie, who will battle the heroes in the game.
We’ll post more details about Kingdom Hearts III as they are revealed. Kingdom Hearts III is being developed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You can check out the Big Hero 6 announcement video for the game in the player below.
