A trailer released at the recent D23 Disney Expo in Tokyo shows that Monsters Inc characters will play a prominent part in Square Enix’s much-anticipated upcoming Disney-themed RPG, Kingdom Hearts III.
The trailer shows that at one point in the game, Mike Wazowski and James P “Sulley” Sullivan from Monsters Inc will join a questing party consisting of Sora, Goofy and Daffy Duck. The trailer also offers a handy insight into Kingdom Hearts III’s gameplay, showing special moves and spectacular traversal.
Square Enix also confirmed at D23 Disney Expo that Kingdom Hearts III will include a Monsters Inc-themed world, bringing the number of confirmed worlds in the game to seven. The other six are the Tangled-themed Kingdom of Corona, Big Hero 6-themed San Fransokyo, Toy Story World, Twilight Town, the Hercules-themed Mount Olympus and Mysterious Tower.
As yet, Kingdom Hearts III has not been given a confirmed release date, but the legend at the end of the trailer confirms it is still on track to come out some time in 2018.
