At D23 Expo 2015 this past weekend, Square Enix and Disney Interactive announced that the characters and world of Big Hero 6 are coming to Kingdom Hearts 3.
With the Big Hero 6 content, Sora and his Disney companions will head to San Fransokyo, home of the robot Baymax, continuing the events of the 2014 movie.
After saying the Big Hero 6 characters will be an integral part of Kingdom Hearts 3, Producer Roy Conli then talked about the parallels between the two:
Big Hero 6 is such a special film for me – and we always made sure that each action sequence had a very special meaning. The themes in Kingdom Hearts and Big Hero 6 match very well. For instance there’s friendship, really important to both stories, and then of course light over darkness.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though there still isn’t a release window.
What other worlds do you hope Square Enix adds to Kingdom Hearts 3?
