During E3, Square Enix announced that their second most requested title* was in development for the PS4 and Xbox One: “Kingdom Hearts III.” That’s right, now Xbox owners will get a taste of the labyrinthine, frankly bizarre contortions of what started out as a sweet Disney/Square mashup over a decade ago on the PS2.
*The first being the “Final Fantasy VII” remake that will probably never happen.
Here’s the synopsis which I’m sure some of you will be able to make sense of:
Believing light and darkness must remain in balance, Master Xehanort seeks to spark war against the ‘tyranny of light’ to restore equilibrium.
In an effort to undermine Xehanort’s plot, Sora, Donald and Goofy search for seven guardians of light and the “Key to Return Hearts,” while King Mickey and Riku search for previous Keyblade wielders.
And from the game’s Facebook page:
KINGDOM HEARTS III features a mature Sora as the main protagonist who sets forth on an adventure with Mickey, Donald and Goofy through new and legendary Disney worlds. KINGDOM HEARTS III will make full use of next generation console technologies to showcase a stunning universe packed full of worlds based on Disney properties.
