Released earlier this week via the official Kingdom Hearts YouTube channel, we’ve been given our latest look at the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III’s expansive universe with a preview of the Kingdom of Corona, otherwise known as the birthplace of Rapunzel and the setting of Disney’s 2010 animated film Tangled. We’ve seen snippets in previous trailers, but this is the first time we actually get to see heroes Sora, Donald, and Goofy encounter both Flynn and Rapunzel as they fight back hoards of heartless with a number of new mechanics.
With Kingdom Hearts III finally starting to feel like a reality, boasting that rapidly-approaching January 29, 2019 release date, getting excited about trailers and videos finally doesn’t feel like a sin. That’s especially good news here, with the latest trailer oozing all sorts of fun-filled moments that perfectly capture the energy that only the sheer ridiculousness of a Kingdom Hearts title could capture. It was only a month ago that we were graced with the TGS 2018 trailer featuring Big Hero 6, so it’ll be interesting to see if we see any more footage before the game actually releases.
Set to be available on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III has been years in the making. With just a few more months standing between us and its release, it’ll be interesting to see just how fans across the globe receive it, especially after all this time.
