Today, during a stage presentation at Paris Games Week, Square Enix showcased two new screenshots of the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III, on top of promising that new information will come after the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue.
The screenshots showcases a new Drive Form named Guard Form, transformed from the Keyblade of Herc’s Shield, and apparently there is a caveat.
This power form was edited as it is the Keyblade from a world that hasn’t been released yet, so it has changed into a hammer shape.
