Many of us have been waiting for a long time to get our hands on Kingdom Hearts III. Thankfully, dreams do come true, as it was finally announced in 2013. Since then, fans have received a trickle of updates on game content. The most recent announcement being that the world of Big Hero 6 will be appearing in Kingdom Hearts III, and that the Big Hero 6 storyline will take place after the events of the movie. Players can expect to see the whole hero team, including Baymax, and will enjoy the fictitious city of San Fransokyo.
I hope to see Baymax as a summon for Sora; however, since Baymax is a lover and not a fighter, I doubt he will do much fighting at all.
Kingdom Hearts III to Include Big Hero 6
Square Enix and Disney Interactive today announced that the beloved characters and world of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Academy Award-winning film Big Hero 6 will make their debut in the ever-expanding narrative of Kingdom Hearts III.
The much-anticipated addition to the Kingdom Hearts franchise will take Sora and a cast of Disney companions to the urban setting of San Fransokyo, home of lovable robot Baymax, continuing the events of the animated film.
At D23 Expo 2015, Academy Award-winning producer Roy Conli delighted fans with the announcement that Big Hero 6 characters will be an integral part of Kingdom Hearts III. In a video message for D23 attendees, Conli draws parallels between core elements of the animated film and the overarching Kingdom Hearts story, remarking: “Big Hero 6 is such a special film for me – and we always made sure that each action sequence had a very special meaning. The themes in Kingdom Hearts and Big Hero 6 match very well. For instance there’s friendship, really important to both stories, and then of course light over darkness.”
The Walt Disney Animation Studios collaboration announcement featuring Conli can be viewed on YouTube.
Kingdom Hearts III will be available for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft.
