“To Infinity… and Beyond!”
The Kingdom Hearts franchise has yet to cross over with Star Wars, but the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III will be exploring new and never-before-seen worlds, including a visit to Pixar’s Toy Story universe. You can watch as Sora meets Woody and Buzz Lightyear in the brand new trailer embedded above.
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 Pixar’s Toy Story,” said Tetsuya Nomura, the 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.”
Toy Story‘s inclusion in Kingdom Hearts III was revealed this weekend at Disney’s D23 Expo, and Square Enix also confirmed (after hinting at it for several months) that the game will officially launch in 2018 for the PS4 and Xbox One.
