Coming as a huge shock to me, Kingdom Hearts 3 was shown off at Microsoft’s E3 conference. I never thought I would see that in a million years. But once the weirdness wore off, I was grateful for the new footage. There is a lot to unpack in it, too. Sora, Donald, and Goofy are shown in a winter wasteland. And then, sure enough, Elsa runs across a river, icing it over. Which could only mean we will be exploring the world of Frozen. It doesn’t look as lame as I would think, there are fast clips of Sora and the gang fighting through the ice and it looks like a ton of fun. And Elsa even saves them in a rather cool way. Leave it to Kingdom Hearts to make me not completely hate Frozen.
More is shown, clips of narration by Sora and others, Organization 13 members being cryptic, a shot of a Tangled world, and what I’m most excited about: a Roxas name drop. I was worried that he wouldn’t be mentioned again after the end of Kingdom Hearts 2 but I’m so glad to be wrong!
Now, seeing as how most of you probably haven’t played these games, all that likely sounds like gibberish to you. I can only say that I hope some of it catches your interest and you decide to get caught up on all the Kingdom Hearts games! You’ve got time for it, Kingdom Hearts 3 launches on January 29, 2019.
Been a fan of video games ever since I opened up a Game Boy with Pokemon Yellow one Christmas far too long ago. I even taught myself to read by playing it! From then on, games and words have always been linked for me. I found that what I really liked about video games (and every other thing I owned) was the stories they held. I’m honored to be here, using my words to talk about the wonderful worlds that games can take us to.
