Fans of Kingdom Hearts rejoice, we’ve just gotten yet another peek into the upcoming world of Kingdom Hearts III via the latest trailer to hit our feeds. Dubbed the “Classic Kingdom Trailer,” we’re given a look into yet another mesmerizing self-contained world in the Kingdom Hearts III story, and this one just so happens to be quite the retro callback. Let’s take a look at the trailer below first, shall we?
If you’ve ever had the opportunity to play any classic LCD game, this trailer might just mean something extra to you. The small pocket-sized devices were a staple of the 1980s, with Disney pushing an entire line of their own miniature adventures to the mass public featuring some of their most iconic characters. Today’s trailer is a call back to that, throwing Sora and his pals right into the games themselves which will serve as a number of mini-games throughout the Kingdom Hearts III story.
Square Enix had the following to say:
Originally aired at KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ[Cross] Dandelion Meeting, this trailer reveals the new mini-games inspired by classic Disney cartoons and 1980’s LCD games that will be available to play in KINGDOM HEARTS III.
What are your thoughts on this neat little addition to the game? While we still don’t have a definitive date, it’s suggested that Kingdom Hearts III will release sometime later this year. With that being said, this writer remains rather cautiously optimistic as to whether or not that will actually happen. Further information can be found via the official website.
