As we anticipated that 2019 was going to be a very promising year for the console gamers, Kingdom Hearts III has set up some standards to beat for the games coming up in this calendar. We know that the fans were waiting for this sequel since a long time but it was really worth it. The game is currently available on Xbox One and PS4 for $59.99 US Dollars. It may also be released on PC if the reviews from the console gamers seems to be encouraging. For now, let’s take a look on the background of the game.
The series was debuted in 2002 when Final Fantasy was the dominating franchise of that decade. The Kingdom Hearts not only gained recognition from the fans but also built a competitive environment in the gaming industry. And now this sequel boosted the reputation of the game furthermore than its contemporaries in the gaming market. Kingdom Hearts III is a joint collaboration of Disney and Square Enix. This partnership was not expected to be the winner of this gaming era as the plot details were full of unexplainable cross-overs but this sequel proved it wrong. Every game of this series begins with a theme music. This time it is ‘Dear Beloved’ composed by the well-known musician ‘Yoko Shimomura’. The adventurous and uplifting effect of this song excites the person before even the campaign starts. Because of too much timeline complexity, Kingdom Hearts 3 story doesn’t pick up where the Kingdom hearts 2 ended so it is pretty much difficult to summarize the plot with limited words. Defining it very shortly, the player takes control of ‘Sora’ the main lead character, story of Kingdom Hearts 3 revolves around Sora, Donald and Goofy who have to prepare for the upcoming war against the darkness by finding the guardians of light.
Talking about the critics’ response, Kingdom Hearts III feels like a relic according to US Gamer. We can observe the classic feeling in each and every moment of the game. It surely justifies with the whole series. We can see that the Kingdom Hearts III is similar to its predecessors in the sense of its gameplay. This franchise gives a sense of PS2-styled games and this one have that essence too. As you watch the teaser, you can easily call it visually stunning. If you are interested in the Disney characters and Disney worlds, this game is made for you. But even if you are not, it still gives the fantastic action and adventurous feeling after completing the storyline that will make you crave for KH4 which may potentially be released sooner than it took for KH3.
