Kingdom Hearts 3 Toy Story Trailer Released During The D23 Expo Level Up Showcase
During the D23 Expo Level Up Video Game Showcase, it was revealed by Tetsuya Nomura that Toy Story will be the next world that can be visited by players in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 game. It was also revealed during the trailer that the game would be released in 2018 on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
This marks the first time that Pixar characters have been in the game and also shows off different gameplay with Sora entering a large robot, similar to the recent Titanfall game. It had been previously revealed that Tangled and Big Hero 6 would also be new worlds in the game.
Check out the trailer below:
The new trailer follows Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy to Andy’s room as they join Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Hamm, Rex and Sarge’s investigation into the disappearance of their fellow toys and Andy, and the emergence of the Heartless enemies in their world. Featuring an original storyline, fans will get a first look at the dynamic trio’s “Toy Story”-themed looks, all-new toys, such as the Gigas, and special Keyblades that transform and give Sora unique attacks to unleash on Heartless enemies.
“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.”
“Featuring a brand new storyline that brings together beloved ‘Toy Story’ friends with the heroes of KINGDOM HEARTS, the ‘Toy Story’ world in KINGDOM HEARTS III successfully mirrors the level of quality that we strive to achieve with every Pixar film,” said Jason Katz, Story Supervisor, Pixar Animation Studios. “KINGDOM HEARTS III will undoubtedly be an experience that fans will not want to miss.”
