Square Enix and Disney Interactive Studios have just released a new game trailer as well as screens from their upcoming title, ‘Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX,’ available exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 3 console in 2014. The trailer comes from the Jump Festa event in Japan and features fan-favorite characters like Sora, Roxas, Riku and Naminé alongside the Disney cast including Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Hercules, King Mickey, Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean) and others – now in stunning high-definition graphics.
Last night, Disney Interactive and Square Enix released a D23 Expo Japan edition of a gameplay trailer for their upcoming release, ‘Kingdom Hearts III,’ which will be available for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.
Believing light and darkness must remain in balance, Master Xehanort seeks to spark war against the ‘tyranny of light’ to restore equilibrium.
In an effort to undermine Xehanort’s plot, Sora, Donald and Goofy search for seven guardians of light and the ‘Key to Return Hearts,’ while King Mickey and Riku search for previous Keyblade wielders.
Disney Interactive and Square Enix today announced that is developing ‘Kingdom Hearts III,’ the next chapter in the celebrated KINGDOM HEARTS franchise that marked its ten-year anniversary in March 2012.
‘Kingdom Hearts III’ features a mature Sora as the main protagonist who sets forth on an adventure with Mickey, Donald and Goofy through new and legendary Disney worlds. ’Kingdom Hearts III’ will make full use of next generation console technologies to showcase a stunning universe packed full of worlds based on Disney properties.
Earlier this evening, the New York Times broke the news that Disney Infinity will no longer be released in June as previously announced, but has been pushed back to August 18 domestically, with a European release a couple of days later.
The move, according to the article, was one based on market and positioning, suggesting retailers were receptive to the product and offering valuable shelf space for it but wanted it closer to the holiday season.
While the article gives the impression that Disney Interactive feels the move will be better overall for its bottom line (at least come 2014), it also introduces some doubts as well.
