The game will feature more than 20 mini games, a secret movie, and more than ten worlds. The development team will also consider online elements once the main story is done.

Kingdom Hearts III‘s Gummi Ship will come with two modes: Exploration Mode and Cardboard Mode. The former lets players freely explore cosmos, and the latter offers cardboard, gems, sweets, and other materials to customize the Gummi Ship.

Last but not least, character ages have been revealed as follows:

  • Terra: About 20 years
  • Aqua: About 18 years
  • Ventus: About 16 years
  • Young Xehanort: 18-20 years-old
