Disney and Square Enix have a new launch trailer for “Kingdom Hearts III,” the long-awaited installment in the popular RPG series. The new title is now available worldwide, sitting with an 88 on Metacritic at launch. The publisher released the new launch trailer this morning and fans of the franchise can watch the video below.
Players will follow the exciting new adventures of Sora; a young Keyblade wielder tasked with protecting the universe from an evil force known as the Heartless. Sora, helped by his loyal companions, Donald and Goofy, who are emissaries sent by King Mickey from Disney Castle, will team up with other iconic Disney and Pixar characters in an attempt to defeat the darkness and save the universe.
“I am thrilled that Kingdom Hearts III is now officially out,” said Tetsuya Nomura, Director of the Kingdom Hearts series. “There are many mysteries in the story, so players will want to take their time so that they don’t miss anything. The adventure lies within the journey, and not just the destination. This story marks one of the greatest experiences Sora will have with his friends, so I hope that the players enjoy it. To all of our fans around the world, thank you for eagerly awaiting this day.”
The game is available now at authorized retailers online and right here on Amazon.
“Kingdom Hearts III is the continuation of an amazing, longstanding creative collaboration between Tetsuya Nomura, Square Enix and Disney’s characters and worlds,” said Sean Shoptaw, SVP, Global Games and Interactive Experiences, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products. “This installment of the fan-favorite franchise is a perfect testament of our approach to matching Disney and Pixar characters and worlds with best-in-class games partners, and giving them the flexibility to create something magical and unexpected. We are elated that today, fans will be able to experience the game for themselves.”
