KINGDOM HEARTS marked its tenth anniversary last year, and development on KINGDOM HEARTS III has officially commenced. KINGDOM HEARTS III is the latest installment in the KINGDOM HEARTS franchise, and the first core sequel since KINGDOM HEARTS II was released in 2006 in Europe and North America.
A mature Sora sets out on a new adventure. The title will make full use of next-generation console technologies to deliver more exhilarating, action-packed gameplay and various fun features. As a culmination of the series so far, KINGDOM HEARTS III is shaping up to be an entertainment experience with a grand story of unparalleled scale.
A key trait of KINGDOM HEARTS is the universe packed full of worlds based on Disney properties. Look forward to things getting spiced up for this new entry, with gameplay that can only be experienced in KINGDOM HEARTS!
Having learned that all the conflicts surrounding “Kingdom Hearts” were a part of Master Xehanort’s master plan to cause a Keyblade War, Sora and his friends search for the seven guardians of light to combat the darkness.
While King Mickey and Riku set off in search of previous Keyblade wielders, Sora, Donald and Goofy visit various Disney worlds in search of the “Key to Return Hearts.”
