Finally, the long wait for Kingdom Hearts 3, which was always postponed, is over. Kingdom Hearts, as we previously knew, is one of Square’s masterpieces. This game can also be said to be one of the most iconic games in gaming history. Square tries to combine the world of Disney with the world of Final Fantasy wrapped in an action RPG style. In this game, Final Fantasy fans can hear the voices of previously mute Final Fantasy characters such as Cloud Strife and Squall Leonheart.
The third Kingdom Hearts comes after Square Enix released several games such as Kingdom Hearts 2.8. This is what makes many fans a little confused about this franchise. After its absence on PS3, Square Enix released this game for PS4 some time ago. Have you played Kingdom Hearts 3? If not, you can follow this article to the end to find out some interesting aspects of this third series of action RPG games from Square Enix. Read: Best PS4 Games 2019.
Story Plot of the Successor to the Kingdom Hearts Series: Dream Drop Distance
One of the main attractions of Kingdom Hearts is the story plot. Not just wanting to collaborate on Final Fantasy with Disney, Square Enix designed the Kingdom Hearts story very in-depth. Likewise Kingdom Hearts 3. This third Kingdom Hearts series is a collection of the core stories that occurred in the Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance series which was released on Nintendo 3DS. In this series, Sora will face Xehanort, whose goal is to master the contents of a mysterious thing, namely Kingdom Hearts, by traveling through time to collect 13 dark figures.
In this third series, you will also find the antagonist characters in the first Kingdom Hearts, Maleficent and Pete, who also participate in a search for a mysterious black box. In this adventure, Sora is still accompanied by his two friends from the previous series, Donald and Goofy. Sora did not pass the Keyblade Master exam because he lost his powers due to falling into darkness. Finally Sora asked his two friends to accompany him to get his strength back.
Meanwhile, the conflict between the 7 lights against the 13 darkness continues. The Keyblade Weilders are looking for Aqua, Ventus, and Terra to complete the number 7. Apart from that, Rikku and Mickey go on an adventure together to find Aqua. This third Kingdom Hearts not only presents the story of the battle between the 7 Lights and the 13 Darknesses, but also an exciting story filled with emotion. That’s the outline of the plot that the third series of Kingdom Hearts wants to show.
Graphics are getting better, maintaining fun gameplay
For gameplay, Kingdom Hearts 3 still sticks to the gameplay mechanisms of its predecessor series. This is the hallmark of the Kingdom Hearts series. However, in this third series, you will no longer find characters from Final Fantasy. Instead, Square Enix delivers a bigger Disney world and a compelling story.
You will discover Disney worlds and characters that have never existed in the Kingdom Hearts series before. You will find several characters in the world of Pirates of the Caribbean, Toy Story, Tangled, and Frozen. Because of this denser world, one thing that is unfortunate about this third series is that the story is less neat. Meanwhile, in terms of graphics, Unreal Engine 4 helps support the overall graphics presented by Kingdom Hearts 3. Square Enix, with the help of Unreal Engine, was very successful in executing the world of the third series of Kingdom Hearts well. The Disney characters in this game are very similar to the originals. Apart from that, you will find lots of new mini games that are fun to play.
In this third series, Sora is able to use 3 Keyblades at once. Like the Final Fantasy XV game where you can “switch” weapons during battle, the third Kingdom Hearts series allows you to do the same thing. Each Keyblade used has a different type of attack. The summon system is still a mainstay of this game. Because it comes with much more detailed graphics, you will find various grander effects and also new summons.
Not only that, this game also provides a dense and lively world. For example, we will find a very colorful and lively world in the combined world of Tokyo and Francisco, Franskoyo which is in the world of Big Hero 6.
Kingdom Hearts 3 Conclusion: Well Worth Trying
Even though it comes with a less neat story, that doesn’t mean Kingdom Hearts 3 has a story that isn’t fun to follow. Moreover, with much better graphics, this game should be the choice of gamers who want a game with an in-depth story. For us, the appearance of this third sequel is enough to satisfy the many years of waiting
