On the surface, Kingdom Hearts sounds impossible. How could a mash-up of Final Fantasy and Disney possibly work? Well, Square Enix made it work, integrating elements from both Final Fantasy and Disney into a large-scale action RPG with a unique plot of its own.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is currently in development, and fans of the series can’t wait to learn more about it. One frequent point of discussion is which worlds players will be able to visit during the game.
As with all the Kingdom Hearts games, Kingdom Hearts 3 will feature a number of Disney worlds. So far, only a few have been confirmed. The world from Hercules has been shown in Kingdom Hearts 3 footage, and it looks like players will be able to explore much more than the Coliseum. The world from Tangled was revealed at E3 2015, and they announced in December that the world from Big Hero 6 is also in Kingdom Hearts 3.
Twilight Town, which isn’t a Disney world but a Kingdom Hearts location that has appeared throughout the series, and the Mysterious Tower where the sorcerer Yen Sid lives, are also in the game.
Kingdom Hearts 3 will have many worlds beyond these, but they haven’t been revealed. Many new worlds are supposed to be featured, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see old ones return as well, like the world from Hercules. Let the speculation begin! Which locations do you think are likely to be in Kingdom Hearts 3, and which would you most like to see?
Personally, I want to see Agrabah return. While it may seem like it’s been used enough, the past Kingdom Hearts games have played with concepts from the first Aladdin movie and its sequel, The Return of Jafar. It makes sense that Kingdom Hearts 3 would include elements from the third movie, Aladdin and the King of Thieves. King of Thieves is filled with material perfect for a game—imagine exploring the Vanishing Isle or fighting an enemy armed with the Hand of Midas.
Of course, that’s just one possibility. Dream Drop Distance proved even other Square Enix titles are viable options, although it’s unlikely to see any others besides The World Ends With You incorporated into Kingdom Hearts, and Disney owns many franchises.
