Square Enix teases Kingdom Hearts story, confirms release on PS4 and Xbox One

By on


You may have seen the announcement trailer in Sony’s press conference yesterday, but today Square Enix has released some more details about Kingdom Hearts III – the latest title in the long-running Kingdom Hearts franchise. And yes, it is indeed coming to the Xbox One as well as the PlayStation 4.

Kingdom Hearts III is a sequel, story-wise, to Kingdom Hearts II but will also integrate the characters from Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep (well, according to the story provided by a Square Enix press release).

The game will feature a mature Sora on a quest to find the seven guardians of light and the “Key to Return Hearts” (yes, it’s actually called that) before Master Xehanort gets them, who is sparking a war against the ‘tyranny of light’. The main B plot is with King Mickey and Riku searching for the previous Keyblade wielders.
