Kingdom Hearts is still a long ways away from release, but Square Enix and Disney’s contributions together continue to grow. During Disney’s D23 event this weekend, it was announced that the upcoming Action-RPG will receive a new world in that of 2014’s critically and commercially acclaimed Big Hero 6 film.
“Big Hero 6 is such a special film for me – and we always made sure that each action sequence had a very special meaning. The themes in Kingdom Hearts and Big Hero 6 match very well. For instance there’s friendship, really important to both stories, and then of course light over darkness,” stated Big Hero 6 Producer, Roy Conli.
Slight spoilers are ahead: set in the fictional city of San Fransokyo, the story takes place after the events of the film where the original Baymax is infected with the darkness of Kingdom Hearts and it’s up to Sora, Hiro and new Baymax to stop him.
Kingdom Hearts 3 will be available for PS4 and Xbox One sometime within the next two years (hopefully).
