“Don’t assume your dreams are just fantasy. If you imagine a world, believe in it…and dive in.” So read the words that fade onto the screen at the start of the new orchestra trailer for Kingdom Hearts III that was dropped yesterday by Square Enix. And what follows is a literal application of that mantra, as the series’s protagonist, Sora, is seen diving into Mount Olympus to do battle with the gods that live therein.
According to Square Enix:
In this action-packed trailer, Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy help Hercules battle various forms of Heartless on Mount Olympus through gorgeous visuals and gameplay. Fans will see Sora in a new form, which allows him to perform special powerful solo and joint attacks on his enemies. A new glimpse into the game’s storyline reveals a reunion with Disney villains Hades, Maleficent and Pete as they discuss the location of a mysterious item while Sora is faced with a dilemma in an effort to bring back an old friend.
See below for the new trailer:
Kingdom Hearts III will release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year.
