King­dom Hearts III

Esquire Middle East - - GAMING -

Four­teen years. That’s how long it’s taken Square Enix to re­lease the se­quel to King­dom Hearts, a nos­tal­giafilled ac­tion RPG that sees pro­tag­o­nist Sora, joined by Don­ald, Goofy and Mickey, all fend off evil forces that are tak­ing over the uni­verse known as Heart­less.

King­dom Hearts III picks up from the end­ing of King­dom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Dis­tance and seeks to tie up the loose ends of its vast and con­vo­luted plot lines. The game re­tains its clas­sic hack-and-slash bat­tle sys­tem but is refreshed with new Key­blades, spells, com­bos, sum­mon­able char­ac­ters and At­trac­tion Flow — su­per moves in­spired by Dis­ney theme park rides.

Out in Jan­uary. Playsta­tion4 and Xbox One.
