Square Enix has unveiled two exciting pieces of content for Kingdom Hearts fans: an extended Big Hero 6 trailer and the official cover art for Kingdom Hearts III.
The latest trailer for the upcoming role-playing action game includes a longer look at the Big Hero 6–themed world, San Franksokyo, as well as several surprises. The footage not only confirms that Roxas and Demyx will make an appearance in Kingdom Hearts III, but it also teases that the data version of Riku from Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories might play a part in the epic Keyblade war.
It seems Sora will also be able to use his Gummiphone to take selfies, which you can see in action in the trailer below.
Alongside the new clip, Square Enix revealed the art that will grace the cover of Kingdom Hearts III. “This stunning piece, featuring a number of iconic characters, was created by series director Tetsuya Nomura,” the developer wrote on Twitter. The image includes several main characters and references to the entire franchise, including a Darkling from the mobile title Kingdom Hearts Union X.
As we draw closer to the launch of #KingdomHearts III we’d like to show you all the cover art for the game!
