After knocking our socks off at the Sony Press Conference yesterday, Square Enix is now ready to offer up some details about their upcoming line-up of next-gen titles, starting with Kingdom Hearts III.

First off, it won’t be a PS4 exclusive title, as it will also be available on the Xbox One. While no release window was given, Square Enix did give us an overview of what we can expect from the story, which features “a mature Sora…who sets forth on an adventure with Mickey, Donald, and Goofy through new and legendary Disney worlds:”

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.

Sadly, no mention was made of Final Fantasy worlds or characters being included within Kingdom Hearts III, so we’ll have to wait and see if they’re completely missing from the game.

If you want to play some Kingdom Hearts this year, the 1.5 Remix is out this September, which will help drive sales for a franchise that has already shipped 19 million units worldwide.

How do you think Kingdom Hearts III sounds? Let us know in the comments below.
