Today, Square Enix held a stage presentation for Kingdom Hearts 3 at Tokyo Game Show 2018. The stage show featured numerous gameplay clips of Sora fighting, “summon” links, mini-games, and more. If you don’t want to see the Sora and Aqua clip, we suggest that you don’t scroll down to the very bottom of the page to see it.
During the show, director Tetsuya Nomura and co-director Tai Yasue answered a couple interesting questions that fans were wondering. When asked if this will be the final Kingdom Hearts game, Nomura said that this isn’t the end of the series, though it will be the conclusion of the Xehanort Saga.
As expected from a title in the Kingdom Hearts series, the upcoming entry will contain a secret ending, which Nomura did not give any details due to spoilers. He did mentioned that they are trying to do something different, and are thinking of making a DLC that has a secret ending of some kind.
Regarding online elements, Nomura said that they do not plan to add any until after the completion of the game. The focus was to finish developing the core-game before deciding if they intend to add online features.
After the show concluded, Tai Yasue told fans that the game will feature over 10 worlds. The demos only showcased roughly 1/4 or 1/3 of the overall size of each world (via /).
Kingdom Hearts 3 will feature over twenty mini-games. One of them shows Sora cooking with Remy assisting him.
For those wondering how old Ventus, Aqua, Tera and Xehanort were in Birth By Sleep, we finally got an official answer to that.
- Ventus – 16 years Old.
- Aqua – About 18 years Old.
- Terra – Around 20 years old.
- Young Xehanort – 18-20 years old.
- Xehanort – 80 years or something (Everyone laughed)
