Baymax and friends are coming to Kingdom Hearts III.
Square Enix and Disney Interactive have revealed that the characters and world of Big Hero 6 will make their debut in the ever-expanding Kingdom Hearts III.
The much-anticipated addition to the Kingdom Hearts series will take Sora and a cast of Disney companions to the urban setting of San Fransokyo, home of robot Baymax, in a story that continues the events of the popular animated film.
At D23 Expo 2015, Academy Award-winning producer Roy Conli made the announcement a video message for attendees.
In the video Conli draws parallels between core elements of Big Hero 6 and the overarching Kingdom Hearts story, saying: “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.”
Such a lot in common. Here’s the video.
Kingdom Hearts III is being developed by Square Enix 1st Production Department, and will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
