You have to be a certain kind of person to really get into Kingdom Hearts, and I'll profess to not being one of them. However, I'm more likely in the minority if the screams, cheers and tears I witnessed at E3 are anything to go by, or the already one million-plus views this trailer has received so far. And today those fans get to witness a "final battle" video that kind of doesn't have a final battle in it at all, and honestly, makes little-to-no sense.
But again, I'm just not a Kingdom Hearts kind of person. For those of you who are though, here's some official lines on the trailer's content, followed by the trailer itself.
As unexpected events began to unfold in the Disney worlds at the hands of the enemy's dark ambitions, the heroic trio of Sora, Donald, and Goofy find adventures ahead, from aquatic battles in the world of Pirates of the Caribbean to dances with the townspeople in the Kingdom of Corona from Tangled. The new footage also showcases Stitch from Lilo and Stitch as a special “link” (summon), as well as cooking-themed Ratatouille Keyblade attacks.
Footage of Kairi wielding a Keyblade, as well as heartfelt conversations between members of Organization XIII, and glimpses of Sora’s Nobody all point to new pieces of the title’s storyline.
Music for the trailer featured excerpts of the brand-new original KINGDOM HEARTS III opening theme song, titled, “Face My Fears,” produced in collaboration with internationally renowned singer-songwriter Hikaru Utada, eight-time Grammy® Award winning artist Skrillex and acclaimed record producer Poo Bear. The song will be available on 18th January 2019.
