Kingdom Hears 3 is one of the most anticipated games of recent times and the hype and rumors continue to build around it as the developers announced that a brand new trailer for the game will make an appearance shortly
The action-role-playing game is being developed by Square Enix and it will be the eleventh iteration in the Kingdom Hearts series.
The developers took to social media to announce that a brand new trailer of the game will be released as a gift to the fans for the holiday season.
Previously, a secret trailer was reportedly revealed at the D23 Japan event which was held back in November. Square Enix did not release the alleged trailer to common public and it was shown only to a select few.
The new trailer is scheduled for a December 18th launch and this is also the date for the official release of Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens.
This has led fans into speculating whether Square Enix would decide to incorporate some aspects of Star Wars in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer.
However, it should also be kept in mind that the release date for the trailer and Star Wars 7 being same might just be a coincidence after all.
An image of Sora, the protagonist of Kingdom Hearts 3 also made an appearance at the official Twitter handle of the game along with the announcement.
The image showed Sora in a Santa Claus costume and it is being rumored that this costume will be included in the game when it is released. The image also featured two logos, one of Kingdom Hearts 3 and the other of Kingdom Hearts HD II.8.
The title Kingdom hearts HD II.8 had earlier caused a lot of irritation and confusion among fans and there is a possibility that the upcoming trailer sheds some more light on the said game.
According to a renowned website, a six seconds footage from the D23 Japan was recently leaked which gave fans a very short glimpse at the gameplay of Kingdom Hearts 3. It has been more than a month since the D23 was held in Japan.
The leaked footage of the secret trailer shown at the D23 is being readily welcomed by fans of the Kingdom Hearts franchise as it provides a short insight into the upcoming game.
Various characters from the upcoming game are spotted in the video which include the likes of Sora, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy.
Mickey is spotted with his key blade in the trailer while Donald and Goofy are found taking flight in a fantasy ride that looks similar to Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blaster ride at Disneyland.
This has sparked rumors that certain Toy Story characters and other aspects might be incorporated into the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 game.
Toy Story apparently features the exact type of color and elements required to be incorporated into Kingdom Hearst 3 and thus it might not be an arduous task for the developers to go ahead and actually include aspects of Toy Story into the game
Various rumors regarding the gameplay of the game are also doing rounds on the internet and they suggest that the main focus of the game might be the lost key blade masters mentioned in the ancient texts.
Mickey and Riku are on a mission to find a particular item that has the capability to get them past the darkness into light.
The missing keyblade masters aspect could be tied up with Mickey and Riku’s quest to create a unique story for the game. Xenahort is expected to be the main antagonist of the upcoming game.
Other reports claim that the gameplay of Kingdom Hearts 3 will share reminiscence with another Kingdom Hearts game- Kingdom Hearts X. New worlds which will be similar to worlds in Wreck-It- Ralph and The Princess frog will be added and the protagonist of the game Sora will be tasked with the exploration of these worlds.
