he main concept of the Kingdom Hearts series is the mix of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy games with the world of Disney movies. There are 8 games in the series with another 7 remakes, but oddly enough Toy Story was never a part in any of the games.
Finally, Square is bringing Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang to the series in Kingdom Hearts 3.
“At long last, we are excited to open up the Kingdom Hearts universe to include the world of Disney•Pixar’s ‘Toy Story,'” said Tetsuya Nomura, Director of the Kingdom Hearts series.
“I’m sure fans have been anticipating the inclusion of this world for many years. The narrative will be an original story exclusive to Kingdom Hearts III, and the gameplay will feel characteristic of the ‘Toy Story’ style and aesthetic. Please stay tuned for more details to be revealed soon.”
Sora , Goofy and Donald will join Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Hamm, Rex and Sarge in Andy’s room. There, the group will investigate the disappearance of Andy and a few other toys.
In the trailer, we get to see how Sora will look in the world of Toy Story. It also shows a few new Keyblades and their transformations.
One of my favorite parts in the video is when Sora is fighting a group of giant mechs. We’re shown he is able to climb inside them and use them against his enemies. Pretty cool.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming out in 2018.
