A mature Sora sets out on a new adventure, as Kingdom Hearts III makes 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!

Kingdom Hearts III will features a variety of worlds/stages based on franchises such as Tangled, Rapunzel, Hercules, Monsters, Inc., Toy Story, and Big Hero 6.

Square Enix announces that Kingdom Hearts III has shipped more than five million units globally, both physically and digitally, across all platforms since its January 29 release, making it the fastest selling game in the history of the series.

The shipment and digital sales numbers for the long-awaited installment in the blockbuster franchise have been matched with critical adoration. Media across the world are lauding Kingdom Hearts III for its breathtaking visuals and widespread appeal to newcomers and series veterans alike, with Bleacher Report praising that the adventure is “accessible for even the most casual of gamers” and “a sheer thrill to take in,” and CNET raving that Kingdom Hearts III is “the best looking Kingdom Hearts game.”

During their epic adventure, Sora and his companions join forces with Mike Wazowski and James P. "Sulley" Sullivan, with a special appearance by Boo. Fright team all-stars Mike and Sulley lend their scaring talents and special combination attacks against their enemies.

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 currently available for Xbox One and PS4.
