You’ve got some friends coming to Kingdom Hearts Union X. Toy Story is here! The mobile spinoff to the Kingdom Hearts series is getting some familiar plastic visitors in the form of Woody, Buzz, Rex, Jessie and Hamm. (Slinky Dog and Mr. Potato Head were likely held back by licensing fees.)
Does this have to do with Kingdom Hearts 3? Maybe, but the release of that game is seven months away. It’s more likely this is intended to promote the recently-opened Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World. In fact, it’s not “likely” — Square states it outright in their press release.
SQUARE ENIX® celebrates the grand opening of Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando with a new Toy Story-themed collaboration event for KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ[Cross]. The hit mobile game offers exclusive content based on the beloved Disney•Pixar film, Toy Story, including:
- Banner Medals (Now through Jul. 31) – Woody and Buzz Lightyear are now available as powerful new Medals.
- Special Event Medals (Now through Jul. 31) – Players can earn multiple “Jessie & Rex & Hamm” Medals by completing objectives in a series of special quests.
You know from the movies that toys are never happy unless they’re played with. Check out the Toy Story cameos in Kingdom Hearts Union X today and make Woody’s day.
