If you've been chomping at the bit to get any kind of update for Kingdom Hearts III then you can take a break from that as it looks like a bit of the story has been spotted out there for us to dissect into. While this may not be officially out of Square Enix it does look like some text from the back of the Sora Play-Arts Kai box has a few little details on what we can expect to be going on in the next game. It may not be much to go on as we wait for Kingdom Hearts III to hit the PS4 and Xbox One, but it is something to look over and let the brain juices flow over.
You can see and read all of the information just a bit lower down but as it looks, we will be fighting the good fight in the most epic of Keyblade Wars. It even sounds like this could be the final battle for all good and light in the Kingdom Hearts IP but given how popular the franchise is I doubt that will be the case. Especially since this would be the second Keyblade War and that leads me to believe that we could have a KBW3 at some point if need be. I'm sure if this one does well we will see that somewhere as the franchise keeps pressing on. You really can't take down these two giant companies once they've bound together.
Moving off of that though, it also sounds like we're going to be seeing a lot more of the Disney worlds in Kingdom Hearts III then we may have thought before. A whole lot of new ones at that to go along with the older ones. Of course there are only allusions to that in the text here and nothing set in stone as to the new worlds we'll see but one can think and hope. My guess will be some based on the more recent successful Disney IPs to have them have another tie-in somewhere. Just please leave Frozen out of it all as I know I'm not the only one who has had enough of that franchise…
With the world under the control of a single Master, the final struggle for true peace begins.
Through countless adventure across many worlds in his long battle against the darkness, Sora, once a little boy who only dreamed worlds beyond his island even existed, has grown up to a dashing young man. Now he is realizing that that battle has played out exactly as Master Xehanort had planned, and the second Keyblade War, the final struggle between light and dark, looms ahead. To counter the overwhelming darkness, Sora and his friends must gather the seven guardians of light. His best friend Riku and King Mickey seek out a battle-scarred Keyblade wielder, while Sora, Donald, and Goofy set off on a journey to find “the Key to Return Hearts.” Never-before-featured Disney worlds set the stage for another daring adventure to save the universe!
Chosen by the Keyblade, he is the one whose heart’s light never fails to shine as a beacon of hope.
Sora, the brave hero chosen by the Keyblade, has always had a strong sense of justice. Through his many battles against darkness, he has grown and learned about the world immensely. Drawn to his light, many friends have lent him their support and granted him their powers to counter the darkness: Riku, the childhood friend he grew up with on Destiny Islands; Donald and Goofy, the two comrades with whom he has shared his adventures from the very beginning; and King Mickey, who unfailingly supports Sora with his own mighty strength. As the world becomes enveloped in another battle against darkness, the Keyblade wielder and his friends must rise up against Master Xehanort and thwart his plot to incite another Keyblade War.
