Kingdom Hearts III is coming to Xbox One on January 29, 2019 with Xbox One X enhancements in tow. Some reviews are already out and it looks like Square Enix has another winner on its hands. Many players — especially those on Xbox One — may be unfamiliar with the combat because this is the first Kingdom Hearts game to hit the console. Luckily, the publisher released an overview video discussing elements like “Keyblades” and much more.
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.
Kingdom Hearts III is an action role-playing game that combines the universes of various Disney franchises and Final Fantasy. It sounds almost like it shouldn’t work, but somehow, it just does, and the franchise has won itself millions of fans across the world. This is the latest entry in this long-running series which has been mostly exclusive to Nintendo and PlayStation systems up until now.
