    Just because it’s the Lion Guard’s job to protect and restore balance to the Pride Lands does not mean that they have to be there for EVERY single problem and or tell everyone how to live their lives. If they were there to solve EVERY single problem then there would be no balance, for their job is to HELP a life, NOT live it for them

Square Enix press release reveals Kingdom Hearts III story details

Square Enix have sent out a press release regarding Kingdom Hearts III, the recently announced Kingdom Hearts title for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This press release links to the 1080p upload of the announcement trailer, provides a clean copy of the game logo (seen below), and reveals some aspects of Kingdom Hearts III's story. This can be seen below. Enjoy!

SQUARE ENIX, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, today announced Kingdom Hearts III, the next chapter in the celebrated Kingdom Hearts franchise that marked its ten-year anniversary in March 2012.

Kingdom Hearts III features a mature Sora as the main protagonist who sets forth on an adventure with Mickey, Donald and Goofy through new and legendary Disney worlds. Kingdom Hearts III will make full use of next generation console technologies to showcase a stunning universe packed full of worlds based on Disney properties.

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.

About the Kingdom Hearts series
Kingdom Hearts is a series of role-playing games created through the collaboration of Disney Interactive and Square Enix. Since the first Kingdom Hearts was released in March 2002 for the PlayStation®2 system, the series has expanded with six subsequent entries. The series celebrated its 10th anniversary in March 2012, and has shipped over 19 million units worldwide.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, a compilation of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories and HD cinematic story videos from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days will also be available for $39.99 on September 10, 2013.


The "Key to return hearts"

...what is this even referring to...?

 

 

Still pumped, though.

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.

 

.............Aren't they kinda looking for the same thing then?? Or do Terra, Ven, & Aqua not count as Guardians of Light?

i thought sora left to find the previous keyblade wielders?

So, the seven guardians of light don't necessarily have to be the seven previous keyblade wielders!! :O

"mature Sora" I wonder if he will be aged higher.
What about Kairi? HELLLOOO? WILL YOU LIKE. MENTION THE MOST IMPORTANT GIRL IN SORA'S LIFE? *sighs*

So, I guess this means Lea & Kairi are training partners since everybody else is busy?

 

HYPE (◕‿◕✿)

Can we go back to Radiant Garden plz

;O I JUST WANNAA CRY

 

yes just YEAAAHH BABYYYY ;D

Yes! I cannot wait for this!

So, I guess this means Lea & Kairi are training partners since everybody else is busy?

 

HYPE (◕‿◕✿)

That is an idea. I deal with that, but really. She needs to be mentioned. She has been important since KH1. WHERE. IS. KAIRI.

Dun Dun Dun....lolz

ouuuu I hope we get to play as Riku too seeing as he gets to go and look for people (kinda thinking its Aqua and Ven, unless he's gon search for them with Sora).

Kinda maybe like in 3D? like do swaps between Soras' story and Rikus' story. I think that'd be p/ cool c:

It may be the Keyblade that Riku used in KH. This is all speculation of course.

What about Kairi? HELLLOOO? WILL YOU LIKE. MENTION THE MOST IMPORTANT GIRL IN SORA'S LIFE? *sighs*

Someone beat me to it xD
GOD DAMMIT SQUARE ENIX GIVE KAIRI SOME ATTENTION

"Key to Return Hearts" Hmm... It sounds like the "Keyblade of People's Hearts"... Well... Kinda... I bet this thing that Sora, Donald, and Goofy is looking for may be the thing they need to return those hearts to their owners like: Ven, I think Xion, Roxas, and Namine? I guess...
So Riku and Mickey will be searching for other keyblade wielders to help them in the fight ? And there will be 7 main ones then like other wielders to help ? Forgive me if I'm being stupid

Yeah one of the Princesses of Hearts. Come on Square!!! Unless Kairi and Lea are being trained under Yen Sid to wield the Keyblade.
Funny how it seems like Sora will be older, but he's probably really just more mature from KH3D's journey. That sure was a surprise, but a really awesome one! Really hyped for the game now! They gotta give us new trailers xD

Guys that keyblade is different and made from the PoH hearts remember ?

lol Maybe some of them are not guardians! (Almost sure, there's more than ten keyblade wielders now?)
Also, they could have meant the Lights themselves...

The keyblade from KH1 was made from the PRINCESS" OF HEARTS HEARTS. This has nothing to do with the guardians of lights. It's two separate things.

I know. I was just saying that it kinda reminds me of that. But this new Keyblade  may have the power to unlock the hearts that has to be returned to their owners.
