This past weekend was an exciting time for both Disney fanatics and gamers – D23 Expo, held at Anaheim’s Convention Center, gave us a peek at the Mary Poppins reboot, scenes from Avengers: Infinity Wars, another look into Insomniac’s Spiderman game, and of course, what a lot of people have been waiting for: more news on Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts 3.
A new trailer showed us that Toy Story will be joining the Kingdom Hearts series. In a Famitsu interview with Kingdom Hearts’ director, Tetsuya Nomura, we learned that Toy Story World takes place after the events of Toy Story 2, and is not a parallel world. Instead, the events of Kingdom Hearts 3 are a part of the Toy Story time axis. In this same interview, we also learned that there are less worlds in Kingdom Hearts 3 than in Kingdom Hearts 2, but that the density of the worlds is greater, which includes more gameplay.
Toy Story isn’t the only world that was announced. Players will also be transported to the world of Big Hero 6! And, yes, that does mean everyone’s favorite personal health care companion, Baymax, will be there. Kingdom Hearts is expected to be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2018!
