Kingdom Hearts III, one of the most anticipated games of all time, was teased by series director Tetsuya Nomura and producer Shinji Hashimoto at the Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix launch event, held at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. A crowd of shocked, yet lucky Kingdom Hearts fans experienced a once in a life time sneak peak at the upcoming title.
Don’t get to excited, while this news his huge, especially because Kingdom Hearts III is still in it’s early development stages, there was no recording allowed at this event. So the footage shown is forever locked away and embedded into the lucky fans’ brains, where we will never be able to see it.(unless someone was sly enough to take even a short video).
Even though we won’t be able to see it, there are a few sources that gives us minor details of what was in the exclusive trailer. Check it out below
Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX Launch Party Summary
Sora is seen in his Kingdom Hearts II Valor form outfit, no new outfit reveal.
-Land of Departure from Birth by Sleep has been confirmed in the new footage and is said to be massive.
-Brand new Heartless designs have also been shown, described to look like “gladiators”.
-Textures for new Heartless are incomplete.
-Land of Departure has been revamped; main building now very closely resembles a tower seen in the Kingdom Hearts browser game χ[chi].
-Sora’s Keyblade is confirmed to transform into dual guns.
-Sora’s dual guns then transform into a cannon.
-Sora is seen in a library/study, facing a large window with curtains. What looks like chess pieces line the window ledge with crown and heart tops.
-The lighting for the game is incredibly beautiful. Sora is bathed in a soft glow while standing in front of the window.
-The footage is raw and very unlikely to be released online to the public soon.
– Huge applause for Birth by Sleep footage in the pre-show trailers!
– The letter “chi” was on a blackboard within the library/study in the KH3 footage
– The letters “CT” could be seen under the Land of Departure-looking world. Looks similar to LoD but possibly is not the world.
– Built on what looks like a hilly area with lots of homes and buildings on them.
– Valor Form and Wisdom Form were definitely the outfits Sora switched between
