Kingdom Hearts III Screenshots Tease Guard Form and Power Form

No, there isn’t any really new information regarding Kingdom Hearts III despite the announcement of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 Remix. However, the Kingdom Hearts official Twitter page did post something rather interesting regarding the Drive Forms that were popularized in the second installment of the series. The new Drive Form is known as Guard Form, a form that changes the Keyblade into a type of shield that resembles the different worlds. The photo that was tweeted shows the Guard Form that was transformed from the Keyblade of Hercules’s shield.

More interesting information regarding this Guard Form was released in the form of another Twitter photo that was edited as to not spoil the weapon that Sora is wielding, as it is from a world that had not yet been announced. It really makes you wonder because the screenshot looks to have been taken in the same world that the Guard Drive photo was taken but it looks like no more information will be shared about that until much later. The photo was also accompanied by a reply tweet that talks about how the weapon in the photo was edited to have a ‘hammer shape’ until they were ready to reveal it.

Unless more information is released in the next couple of months, we don’t really look forward to any more Kingdom Hearts III news until maybe after the release of Kingdom Hearts 2.8 later this year. Until then, all we can do is hope that Square Enix has been extensively working on the project while also focusing on their other titles and is close to its completion.
