Following the airing of a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts III during a Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] fan meetup in Anaheim, California, Game Director Tetsuya Nomura himself provided a bit more information about during a panel.
First of all, we learn that the minigames, named “Classic Kindom” will be discovered and unlocked in game, and then become accessible on Sora’s LCD game machine. There will be twenty of them, and some will be made available on Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] before release.
Another rather interesting element is a new event in Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] tying into Kingdom Hearts III. The event is already live and will let 300 lucky players have their names included in Kingdom Hearts III. Nomura-san opted to keep the mystery on how the names will be displayed.
Players will have to enter the event via this form. They will then be able to accrue points in three categories, login days, high score challenge, and toon moogle medals. Interestingly, you won’t receive any notification on whether you’ve been chosen or not, which means that you’re probably gonna be surprised by seeing your name directly in Kingdom Hearts III when you play, if you’re among the winners, which is actually pretty cool.
If you want to see more about Kingdom Hearts III, you can check out the latest trailer showing the “Classic Kindom“, the previous Japanese trailer and the reveal of the new song by Hikaru Utada “Oath,” or the English version and song “Don’t Think Twice.” You can also read some additional information, and read our semi-recent interview with Tetsuya Nomura himself, talking about Development, Keyblade Mechanics and Much More.
Kingdom Hearts III will release for PS4 and Xbox One in 2018. The game can be pre-ordered on Amazon. Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] is currently available on iOS and Android.
