I know, I know, itsbeen84years.gif. But it happened! People outside Square Enix have actually played the third mainline entry in the long, long-running Kingdom Hearts series. And I’m one of them!
Kingdom Hearts has touched countless lives across numerous games since the first title in 2002 — KH3 is only the series’ third mainline title — impressive for a collaboration that stemmed from a casual elevator chat between executives (Square Enix’s Shinji Hashimoto among them).
Tetsuya Nomura, director of Kingdom Hearts 3, said in a presentation preceding yesterday’s hands-on session that the theme of this game is “resolution” — specifically, that of the ongoing battle against main series antagonist Xehanort. He also alluded to a darker overall theme than we saw in earlier titles, foreshadowed in events that take place in the mobile game Kingdom Hearts Union Cross.
Hello Kingdom Hearts fans! Did you get a chance to see the new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, which showcases Aqua, one of the original Keyblade wielders, and her battle against the Heartless? The battle is featured in a completely new playable episode in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A fragmentary passage –, which is included in the HD compilation and includes next-generation graphics.
Happy Holidays, PlayStation.Blog readers! The Kingdom Hearts team would like to wish you a very merry holiday to you and your loved ones. The launch of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX on December 2nd has brought together countless people and the #feels have spread in good spirits.
I know that I have friends who aren’t familiar with Kingdom Hearts just yet, and I’m always thinking about how I can make them see how magical the franchise is through the trailers we make and to help them get familiar with the deep, multi-game story behind Kingdom Hearts.
Unless you live in a dungeon, it’s probably been impossible to miss all the awesome Square Enix Japan titles we’ve enjoyed talking to you guys about here on PlayStation.Blog. As the new year is almost upon us, who’s up for a quick stroll down the 2013 memory lane? Earlier this year, we brought you Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, which was in and of itself a walk down memory lane as you relived the story of Sora and his friends.
In case you thought we were done with Kingdom Hearts news for the year, you thought wrong!
As a holiday present to you all, and on behalf of the Square Enix team, I’m happy to unveil the next Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX trailer.
