Kingdom Hearts III has a Monsters Inc. world, a new theme song, and still no release date
The world of Monsters Inc. is coming to Kingdom Hearts III. The announcement was made, appropriately enough, at a Tokyo Disneyland theater as part of D23 Expo Japan 2018. The latest entry in Square Enix’s surreal, hugely popular Disney-meets-Final-Fantasy crossover series remains pegged for a 2018 release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with nothing more specific announced today.
Series director Tetsuya Nomura showed some behind-the-scenes videos that detailed the game’s production and design — for instance, you can now fly the Gummi ship through open-world, 360-degree space. A video featuring the game’s new theme song — performed by J-pop megastar Utada Hikaru, as with the original Kingdom Hearts and its sequel — was also revealed.
