Microsoft brought back its X0 event this year, hosting it along with its fourth annual Xbox FanFest in Mexico City, Mexico. As part of the exciting event, Square Enix showcased a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts III, as well as some information from Executive Producer Shinji Hashimoto!
About twenty minutes into the special episode of Inside Xbox, a brand new trailer was revealed, introducing the latest world in the series, the 100 Acre Wood. The trailer also shows off various scenes from Twilight Town, Kingdom of Corona, and San Fransokyo, as well as the first dialogue by both Demyx and Master Xehanort.
Panel with Shinji Hashimoto
A discussion was held with Executive Producer Shinji Hashimoto. He revealed that the 100 Acre Wood would have a series of puzzle minigames, to add to the list of already-known minigames. He also quickly explained the story of how Kingdom Hearts came to be, explaining that a Disney producer approached Square in the infamous elevator incident. Finally, he explained that the hardware in Xbox One X is being used to depict the sea, the detail on the character models, and the verticality in all the worlds.
Shortly after the trailer premiered at X018 and went live on YouTube, Series Director Tetsuya Nomura announced on Twitter that another trailer for the game would release later this month, and multiple trailers would be releasing in December in preparation for the game! Are you excited to play with Winnie the Pooh in the 100 Acre Wood again?
