Players will also have to see the ending before they view this secret video and the eligibility criteria for the same also depends on the difficulty level players choose.
Last month, Kingdom Hearts 3 was leaked and since then, Square Enix has been trying to avoid spoilers. According to the developer, the free DLC will enhance gameplay experience in many ways and it will add more enjoyment to the game. When the copy of the Xbox version of Kingdom Hearts 3 leaked in December, Kingdom Hearts chief Tetsuya Nomura said that the game’s physical copies which were sold on Facebook at that time, don’t contain the entire game. He also requested the community to not share videos and screenshots.
Kingdom Hearts 3 will let your nostalgia run wild as the game features some mini-games and it also brings back our favourite characters from Disney and Pixar. The game will feature 4 mini-games which you can unlock. These mini-games are designed in the same way 1980’s LCD games were designed for Nintendo’s Game & Watch devices. In the classic kingdom trailer released by Square Enix, you can watch all the four mini-games which will be a part of Kingdom Hearts 3 when it launches in January.
Sora is returning as the protagonist and she will later be joined by King Mickey, Donald Duck, Riku, and Goofy as the group goes in search of the seven Guardians of Light. These characters will also cross paths with other popular characters from Pixar and Disney properties. From Disney and Pixar, Jack Sparrow, Hercules, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Rapunzel, Simba, and many other characters will be available in the game. The game’s official trailer gives us a glimpse of how each of these characters will play their roles in the game.
Master Xehanort will lead the enemy team with the evil fairy Maleficent, Riku’s replica, Xigbar, Luxord, Vanitas, and many other characters. Kingdom Hearts 3 is the final chapter of the Xehanort or Dark Seeker saga. The game’s story picks up after the events of Dream Drop Distance. The final battle will bring seven lights and thirteen darknesses together.
Kingdom Hearts 3 will come out on January 25 in Japan and many other Asian countries. The worldwide release is scheduled for January 29, the day when the first patch will be released. Kingdom Hearts 3 will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It is a direct sequel to the series’ Kingdom Hearts 2 game which was released exclusively for PlayStation 2 in 2006 (worldwide).
