Wanna build a snowman? Square’s latest Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer made its premiere during the Microsoft E3 press conference this afternoon. Looks like Sora and company are visiting Arendelle?
With her ice powers, Elsa can explode a Heartless with a dead shot from 50 feet away — pretty boss, but she doesn’t look very confident about it. We not only saw lots of the Frozen world, but new footage from the other revealed worlds.
Perhaps it’s not that surprising that Square chose to fold in the most popular Disney movie in recent memory, but they’ve also had a tendency to go for the offbeat and cult properties like Nightmare Before Christmas — and so far for #3 we’ve seen Toy Story, Monsters Inc, Tangled….all safe and predictable choices. We do see Wreck-It Ralph, but he appears to be a summon of some kind. I’d like to see a Wreck-It Ralph world, but I suppose all those non-Square cameos would be kind of hard to clear.
As was revealed last night, Kingdom Hearts 3 finally has a solid release date, but it’s early next year. Look for it January 29, 2019 on Playstation 4, XBox One and PC.
