A mature Sora sets out on a new adventure, as Kingdom Hearts III will make full use of next-generation console technologies to deliver more exhilarating, action-packed gameplay and various fun features.

As a culmination of the series so far, Kingdom Hearts III is shaping up to be an entertainment experience with a grand story of unparalleled scale.

A key trait of Kingdom Hearts is the universe packed full of worlds based on Disney properties. Look forward to things getting spiced up for this new entry, with gameplay that can only be experienced in Kingdom Hearts!


The new trailer follows Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy to Andy’s room as they join Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Hamm, Rex and Sarge’s investigation into the disappearance of their fellow toys and Andy, and the emergence of the Heartless enemies in their world. Featuring an original storyline, fans will get a first look at the dynamic trio’s “Toy Story”-themed looks, all-new toys, such as the Gigas, and special Keyblades that transform and give Sora unique attacks to unleash on Heartless enemies.

“At long last, we are excited to open up the Kingdom Hearts universe to include the world of Disney•Pixar's ‘Toy Story,’” said Tetsuya Nomura, Director of the Kingdom Hearts series. “I'm sure fans have been anticipating the inclusion of this world for many years. The narrative will be an original story exclusive to Kingdom Hearts III, and the gameplay will feel characteristic of the ‘Toy Story’ style and aesthetic. Please stay tuned for more details to be revealed soon.”

“Featuring a brand new storyline that brings together beloved ‘Toy Story’ friends with the heroes of Kingdom Hearts, the ‘Toy Story’ world in Kingdom Hearts III successfully mirrors the level of quality that we strive to achieve with every Pixar film,” said Jason Katz, Story Supervisor, Pixar Animation Studios. “Kingdom Hearts IIIwill undoubtedly be an experience that fans will not want to miss.”

To celebrate D23 and the release of the new trailer, Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] (for iOS and Android devices) will offer a powerful “Kingdom Hearts III Sora [EX]” Medal. This is the first time a character medal from Kingdom Hearts III has been added to the game. For one month (July 16 through August 16), all players can receive the never-before-seen medal by simply logging-into the game.

“Don’t assume your dreams are just fantasy. If you can imagine a world, believe in it…and dive in.”


Having learned that all the conflicts surrounding “Kingdom Hearts” were a part of Master Xehanort’s master plan to cause a Keyblade War, Sora and his friends search for the seven guardians of light to combat the darkness.

While King Mickey and Riku set off in search of previous Keyblade wielders, Sora, Donald and Goofy visit various Disney worlds in search of the “Key to Return Hearts.”

Kingdom Hearts III is coming to Xbox One and PS4 in 2018.
