Kingdom Hearts III Gets New Big Hero 6 Footage at PlayStation's TGS Lineup Tour; Kingdom Hearts: VR Experience Revealed [UPDATED]

Have you been looking forward to seeing more of San Fransokyo or seeing more of Vanitas? Are you in luck, because Kingdom Hearts III just got some brand new footage in the PlayStation Lineup Tour leading up to TGS.

The footage (seen below) showcases a bunch of things, but the headliners to me were an extended look at the Big Hero 6. Along with that, we also see some footage of the Tangled setting and footage of Gummi Ship gameplay (whether we like it or not).

On top of the new footage that is being showcased, a PlayStation VR Kingdom Hearts: VR Experience was shown off. Not too much was shown, but we did get to see a focus on Roxas/Axel/Xion scenes at the clock tower of Twilight Town eating sea salt ice-cream. Even better, you can see some bare-bones combat where you are swinging a Keyblade at some Heartless.

Update: Following a press release from Square Enix, we have a few more details about the game. Apparently the game is in development between both Square Enix and Sony Interactive Entertainment, and the “experience” will be a ten-minute interactive video focusing on the music of Kingdom Hearts. That said, the game will have unlockable content earned through playing the experience.

Even more notable, Square Enix describes the game as the “first” Kingdom Hearts PlayStation VR experience, perhaps signaling that there will be even more down the pipeline. But that is speculation–take it with a grain of salt.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Kingdom Hearts III will be available for everyone on January 25, 2019 (after a very brief delay) for PS4 and Xbox One. The game is available for pre-order on Amazon right now. Meanwhile, Kingdom Hearts: VR Experience will be coming to PS VR (via PS4) sometime this holiday season, just in time to get us hyped for KHIII.

Check out both of the trailers, as well as some screenshots, below:
