The world of Big Hero 6 is coming to Kingdom Hearts III. Shinji Hashimoto, game producer at Square Enix, announced during Disney’s D23 Expo today KHIII will feature a world based on the animated franchise Big Hero 6. After the announcement by Hashimoto, a picture was displayed at D23 showing Sora on top of the friendly robot Baymax battling against a dark version of Baymax. For the first time, players will see main character Sora experience a brand-new adventure with Baymax in San Fransokyo.
The statement at D23 was followed by a video announcement featuring Walt Disney Animation Studios film producer Roy Conli indicating the events in the world of San Fransokyo in KHIII will take place after the events of the animated film.
“Big Hero 6 is such a special film for me – and we always made sure that each action sequence had a very special meaning,” said Conli. “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.”
Also, 5000 attendees at D23 will be getting an exclusive Disney Infinity 3.0 power disc unlocking a Mickey Mouse Kingdom Hearts outfit.
