The Kingdom Hearts series is dear to many of us. It's an example of the beautiful adventures we embarked upon as children, combining our love for Disney with the animation style, and game design of Japan. Perfection. But there are three aspects about the upcoming installments that have us particularly hyped.

Kingdom Hearts 3 will have many new Disney characters and worlds for us all to enjoy, new gameplay features for us to master, and surely a ton of emotional moments to engage with. We're crazily excited for its release date, but what exactly are you looking forward to the most? What aspects of the game have you excited? The narrative? The characters? The new Disney worlds? The idea that Marvel, Star Wars and more could feature in it?

Kingdom Hearts 3 - Why We Can't Wait For its Release Date!

When it comes to Kingdom Hearts, there are aspects of the game that we all focus on. We all have our favourite characters, our favourite game in the series, and our favourite gameplay mechanics. But outside of that, what is it that has made you fall in love with Kingdom Hearts? For me, it starts very simply, at the opening menu in fact.


The music of Yoko Shimomura is remarkable. Her themes are drenched in nostalgic beauty, themes that make you pine for a simpler time in your life; one were you were captivated by Disney and the worlds that the studio could create. From Dearly Beloved, to the battle themes on every world, Shimomura has graced the Kingdom Hearts series with her talent. Let's celebrate that talent with some beautiful music, shall we?

The Possibility of Star Wars

It's probably just our hype for [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158), but the idea of seeing Star Wars rendered in the beautiful animation style of Square's Kingdom Hearts series is too alluring to ignore. Forget about Marvel, and even The Muppets, all of Disney's other franchises can stay out of Kingdom Hearts 3 as long as Star Wars is considered.

Do you think it has the chance of being in the game on release date? Do you feel like Star Wars will be a good fit for the game? Perhaps it would throw off the balance for some, but we'd love a roster of Star Wars characters on a new world!

Forgotten Worlds & Under-appreciated Characters

I'm sure all of you can think of characters and worlds that have been seriously under-appreciated in general, but also by the Kingdom Hearts games. There is potential for so many new worlds and characters from the universes of Pixar for example, but even classic Disney films have overlooked characters - like these forgotten few! Who would you like to see in Kingdom Hearts 3, what film would you like to walk through as Sora?
