Kingdom Hearts 3 Sora

ICYMI, here’s the Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer from E3 2015, plus some images of Sora, Donald and Goofy riding the teacups.

E3 is an exhausting business. There’s a lot of noise, and bright lights, and flashing images, and people – so many people – but mostly, there are a lot of games. It’s easy to get a little fatigued; case in point, this transcript of a conversation I had with Daniel last week:

Me: So what’s on the menu today?
Daniel: I’m at a Square Enix briefing next. Gameplay demos of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Just Cause 3, and an unannounced title!
Me: Sounds exciting! Let me know how you get on.

<2 days pass>

Me: Hey Daniel, you never said – what was the big reveal from Square Enix?
Daniel (noticeably weary at this point): Oh, er… Deus Ex overran but it was… yeah… just, er… Kingdom Hearts 3.

“Just, er… Kingdom Hearts 3.” You know, a mere trifle of a title, no biggie. It’s only the third in the series of the bizarre lovechild of Square Enix and Disney, and one of the most fun action RPGs out there. Small potatoes, I’m sure you’ll agree.

And that, ladies and gents, is what E3 does to you.

Here’s a Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer, to say sorry:

And in one of the more surreal moments of a trailer that already includes Donald Duck and Goofy fighting alongside a child with a giant key, they all have a go on a teacup ride as part of some bizarre carnival-based summon monster:

Remember the theory from Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask that Link’s already dead, and the weird world he’s inhabiting is a sort of purgatory? I think Kingdom Hearts 3 is what happened when Link went without sleep for a week, then ate some mushrooms he found in the long grass…
