Story of KINGDOM HEARTS III
Believing light and darkness must remain in balance, Master Xehanort seeks to spark war against the ‘tyranny of light’ to restore equilibrium.

In an effort to undermine Xehanort’s plot, Sora, Donald and Goofy search for seven guardians of light and the “Key to Return Hearts,” while King Mickey and Riku search for previous Keyblade wielders.

KINGDOM HEARTS III will be available for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. KINGDOM HEARTS III is not yet rated. Please visit the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) website at www.esrb.org for more information about ratings.

I feel as if the "Key to Return Hearts" is a better alternative for Sora this time around. As we saw in KH, he used the Keyblade of People's Hearts to free Kairi's heart, but that also turned him into a Heartless. Maybe this new Keyblade will free/return the hearts in Sora without the side-effect of him turning into a Heartless.

They say sora will be mature? thats funny because i particulary think sora is better of being more of a lovaball goofball if people know what i mean XD

No, She is not a master yet,she is currently training

That's possible, but you'd think Master Xehanort would prefer a more youthful appearance, when the whole reason he sought a new vessel was because his real body was aging. :|a

I think we need to know more about Terra's current condition. The fact that Master Xehanort revived as baldy kind of confused me, as you'd think he would reappear as Terranort. So, the question then becomes, where is Terra? I assume he's one of the thirteen, but it's hard to say.

I'm also of the mind that Kairi needs to do more in this game. Frankly, I want to see her interact with characters besides Sora. Why not have her bounce off of Disney characters? I'd love to see her interact with Lea, and her friendship with Riku has never been touched upon as much it should have, IMO. We only see tiny traces of it on her end, with Riku's dedication to her in KH1 being the most developed aspect of their bond.

this is just me retelling what someone told me and i may not say it one hundred percent correctly. The heart shapes the vessel so since Xehanort is in control of Terra's body he is able to change the appearance so thats why he looks the way he does. This can actually also be seen when Ansem SoD takes over Riku's body and then changes the form. Even though Ansem SoD is a heartless, heartless have captured hearts inside them.

Kairi is a keyblade master as of Kingdom Hearts 3D, you will almost certainly experience the growth of Kairi as a character :)

 

A keyblade master before Sora?

Yea if Master Xehanort revived as himself then Terra must have as well cuz the only reason Terranort existed was cuz Terra and Xehanort where sharing a body so if Xehanort has his body back Terra probably does too
