The moment many have been waiting for has arrived. At Disney’s ‘D23’ event, a new Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer was shown off. Not only does it reveal some new gameplay and story details, but it shows off the 4th Disney world to be announced for the game. We now know that the game will include the world of Toy Story, along with the previously revealed locations from Tangled, Hercules, and Big Hero 6. This marks the first time ever that a Pixar property has been featured in a Kingdom Hearts game. As the trailer shows, the Toy Story characters are beautifully rendered in Kingdom Hearts 3‘s ‘Kingdom Shader’, and look nearly identical to the way they did in the Toy Story films.
The trailer also demonstrates the sheer size of Kingdom Hearts 3‘s worlds, as Sora and his team can be seen wandering around outside Andy’s room. We also find out that both Buzz Lightyear and Woody will be accompanying you during your battles in this world, bringing the current maximum party size up to five (two bigger than in Kingdom Hearts 2).
Lastly, it also reveals that the game is planned for release in 2018. Whether it will be a late or early 2018 release we don’t know, but hopefully we can expect new information sooner rather than later.
Gaming for almost a decade and writing even longer, Adeolu Adeoye is an avid fan of both art forms, with a love for convoluted storylines and cheesy dialogue. You can always depend on him to switch to support, or talk for hours about character design.
If the second season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer shows us anything, it's a renewed sense of confidence in itself. Like its characters, Buffy is a hell of a lot more sure of itself in its second year. particularly as the season goes on. While "Halloween" showed that this show was more than willing to get silly for an episode, "Bewitched, Bewildered and Bothered" doubles down on that to glorious effect.
It wasn't too long ago that we barely had any new games released on a Nintendo console and now it seems like we can hardly keep up. It's another big week for the Big N with releases of Pokken Tournmanent DX, Thimbleweed Park, Steamworld Dig and so much more.
With the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey being only the third Mario game in the same vein as Super Mario 64 (following Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine), it is high time to reexamine one of the evergreen staples of the video game canon.
Absolver is a heavy hitter and as such, a lot of its punches are wild swings that miss their target. The ones that do connect, however, leave a lasting impression. A fantastic idea executed competently but, unfortunately, not much more than that.
