Kingdom Hearts 3 is only a few days away from release and Square Enix has released a gameplay overview video to give players an introduction to how the new game’s Keyblades will work.
Some of the gameplay features the video showcases include transforming Keyblades, elemental magic, Attractions, Disney and Pixar Character Links, Team Up Attacks, the Gummi Ship, mini games, and more. Here’s a description of the new video:
As the Heartless invade the universe, players must prepare Sora and his friends to protect the Disney and Pixar worlds against darkness and unlock the mysterious power of the Keyblades, which only the strong of heart can wield. For the first time in the KINGDOM HEARTS series, the Keyblades have the ability to transform into different forms with powerful new abilities and dazzling attacks inspired by the characters and elements of each world.
Players can also learn how to use elemental magic for offensive and defensive purposes, such as creating ice slides and wind vortexes to navigate through the chaos in battle. Taking the form of classic Disney rides, players can utilize the power of the Attractions, or team up with Donald, Goofy and other legendary characters from Disney and Pixar worlds to turn the tides against the darkness.
The new footage also gives fans a glimpse of the Gummi Ship and how to augment its speed, shield, firepower, and design as they journey between worlds, as well as the various other activities they will encounter along the way, including a trip down memory lane with classic Kingdom minigames inspired by 1980’s-era LCD games and iconic Disney animated shorts.
Kingdom Hearts 3 will be available on January 29, 2019, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You can check out the new gameplay overview video above.
