    You know what bugs me? The fact that χ Back Cover has new music and yet we can only hear Case of the Foretellers and the Dearly Beloved online particularly on YouTube. This stinks.


Gummi Ship gameplay in Kingdom Hearts III will feature open world-like exploration and augmented combat style; customization will be richer than previous games

After the conclusion of the Kingdom Hearts Fan Event at D23 Expo Japan 2018, Japanese Twitter user and D23 Expo attendee Usamasuku confirmed that Kingdom Hearts III will feature open-world Gummi Ship gameplay, complete with a "search" function for exploration and a "battle" function. In addition, the Gummi Ship remains customizable, just like it did in its previous incarnations! The attendee in question compared the Gummi Ship's battles to those seen in the Star Wars franchise!

GameSpot adds that combat has been augmented, and will have more enemies that in the preceding games in the series. PlayStation Access reported that over 30 types of enemies will be available to battle against.

IGN details that the customization factor of Gummi Ships will be richer in this game. The exploration phase will involve directing the Gummi Ship freely in any direction, at 360°, on a field much like an open world.

Thanks to KH13 Staff Mio-chan for the translations!
Kingdom Hearts III releases in 2018, and you can view the new trailers for the game here.

What do you think of the Gummi Ship's improvements? Are you looking forward to high-intensity open-world Gummi Ship battles? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to catch up with all the news with our coverage article for D23 Expo Japan 2018 and the Kingdom Hearts Fan Event!

Interesting info. Rob can visualize the Star Wars battles, but the search and battle function needs to be seen in person.

Like the improvements but still prefer the Keyblade Glider since it gives more mature environment and fits for the final title of the saga, nevertheless, having an open world Gummi ship sounds cool
So if i'm understanding this right there's an open world search mode where I guess you wander around a map searching for a world and a battle mode where you fight heartless...isn't that how it always is?

Open World? How is that going to work?

In KH2, wandering around the map was more for navigation rather than exploration of the field of play

I didn't know I wanted this until I found out we were getting it!

Thank you for informing us about this, Raxaimus!

 

Dang, it sounds as though the Gummi Ship segment in this game is going to be the most insanely awesome one yet! Aerial battles that reminisce those of Star Wars's space battles? Now that's quite the comparison! Gahhh, the excitement! :D

So the world map will be fully 360 explorable, thus in a way, the world map will be like "another world" where you will encounter enemies in a certain area and such. It sounds so cool!
