During the “It’s Game Time: Disney Interactive Takes the Stage” panel at D23 expo in Anaheim, Producer Shinji Hashimoto and Square Enix gave announced new information about Kingdom Hearts III.
Not only we heard that all Keyblades will have special transformation, but also that the game will get a special collaboration with Disney’s film Big Hero 6. The story will take place after the end of the movie, after the protagonists already formed their superhero team. Of course the adorable Baymax will return as well. The original Baymax controlled by darkness will also appear as an enemy.
Below you can see some images showcased during the presentation, including the first piece of concept art of the Big Hero 6 world.
