Following yesterday’s D23 event, Kingdom Hearts III director Tetsuya Nomura sat down with IGN and Game Informer to share some more info on the upcoming title.
Speaking to IGN, he teased that Sora won’t be the only playable character but didn’t disclose who’ll be joining him. “So it would be tough to introduce many, multiple playable characters, but there is an intention of adding a playable character aside from Sora,” said Nomura. “Unfortunately we’re not able to disclose who it is yet, but there will be [another playable character].”
What he can confirm, however, is that the Gummi Ship will return.
“In terms of the Gummi Ship making its return, I can confirm on that, but how it is or what has become of it, we’re not able to reveal it at this point,” Nomura told Game Informer while asking fans to stay tuned for more info.
Kingdom Hearts III doesn’t have a set release date yet but we’re told it’ll be out in 2018.
