Today during Disney's D23 convention producer Shinji Hashimoto announced that San Fransokyo, the setting of the Academy Award-winning Disney film Big Hero 6, along with its loveable cast, will be making an appearance in Kingdom Hearts III.

The story is set to follow the events of the movie instead of recapping them with Sora & co. integrated into it (like in KHII), so expect some interesting twists to the world of Big Hero 6! As illustrated in the concept art, Sora will most likely end up battling a Heartless version of Baymax, while riding on the back of the robot.

Are you excited for Big Hero 6 in KHIII? What other characters do you want to appear as party members? Let us know in the comments!

It's a good film, and should make for a great world. It's a shame that I haven't played a Kingdom Hearts game since II and can't remember anything much about the story, as such I'm not hyped for this at all. Maybe I'll think about getting II.5 HD so I can attempt to freshen up on what's happened.

One of my favourite films with my all time favourite game series...

I played CoM, Days, and Coded to tide me over but really, it wasn't necessary. As much as I think I would like to play Sleep and Dream, I'm pretty sure I could go without and just skip to III without feeling like I missed a lot. I'm not one of those a-holes who feels completely ripped off when a story hop-skip-jumps an entire segment as long as they get around to explaining what happened in that time.

Point: I do like the idea of B6 in the game... has Frozen been confirmed? I remember hearing something about Tangled.

Tangled is confirmed and my guess is that Frozen is just around the corner.

Also... Yeah, with BBS and DDD the story has made quite a dramatic shift so I'd recommend at least familiarizing yourself with the story :monster: Unlike the others, which focused more on other aspects of the series, these two should definitely be considered main entries.

Apparently all the worlds are going to be new in KH3 - so Frozen could be on the cards.

If that is the case I wonder what they'll do instead of the Coliseum. It won't feel like a main entry without some cups to compete in.

Oh, except the Coliseum. That was the small print. xD

Hey, I just

It's a good one to include, but I feel like Wreck-It-Ralph is just dying to be a world...

I think it would be cool to see at least one Sqeenix themed world aside from the usual hub town and the final showdown world. I would love running around Spira or something.

Fynn

You know that won't happen. And honestly, I wouldn't even want that to happen. Those worlds already have their own games and we've already explored them.

Most of my favourite Disney films have been done, so if they're only doing unexplored worlds then I'm having trouble thinking of worlds that would appeal to me more. Jungle Book, Toy Story and Treasure Planet are pretty much all that's left I'd like to see.

Even if it weren't a Final Fantasy world, Hallow Bastion, Traverse Town etc. are usually more exciting than the Disney world's anyway. Just put one or two more of them in there.

Fynn

I'm all for more completely original worlds. I just don't want a game-specific world :p

I'm curious what difference you find between playing through the story of Aladdin and playing through the story of a Final Fantasy game. Obviously I know one is based on a game and one on a film, but Kingdom Hearts is about Sora's story and his interactions with pre-existing worlds. If I wanted to see the original story of Aladdin I'd watch the film, if I want to see Sora in Aladdin I play Kingdom Hearts; similarly, if I want to play the original FF8 then I'll play it, but if I want to see these characters in that world then what is the difference to the first example?

I know that it's near impossible with the story set the way it is (Squall, Cloud etc. being from Hallow Bastion, Tidus and Wakka being children from Destiny Islands), but I'm speaking in hypotheticals here to try and understand your reasoning.

Fynn

There's a lot of reasons that I can't really put to words because they're mostly just related to me feeling it would be wrong. But rationally, there's at least one.

With Disney world, you're condensing (or expanding on) a simple story of a 90-minute movie. FFs are all 20+ hours long with much more complex stories and larger worlds, so either condensing them or building on them in one little Kingdom Hearts world would not only be difficult, but I can't see a way out of it that wouldn't feel cheap.

I also personally just love the idea of FF characters being cameos and/or having a role in the main plotline and original worlds. It's like, this is an SE game already, we've played these characters, now I wanna kick ass alongside Elsa and stuff.

It's kind of why I used to love the idea of Kefka in FF and now I think he wouldn't work - you just know he'd end up upstaging Xehanort. Disney villains have a different dynamic. So having like a real threatening FF villain in an FF world (Sephiroth is just an optional boss who's only interested in Cloud) could kind of upset this balance. I mean, I doubt they'd play along with the Disney villains in charge of the Heartless, and the overall feeling you'd be left with would be "how can we just leave that world like that when there's this witch kompressing time? Screw the Heartless - that sounds way more sinister!"

Pheesh
08-19-2015, 08:51 AM
Yeah, those are all good points. I think ret-conning the previous lore is more than enough reason not to add in worlds that Cloud and co. were a part of from their FF entries, I wouldn't be surprised or bothered to see more optional Final Fantasy bosses make appearances though.

Fynn
08-19-2015, 08:58 AM
Oh yeah. That would definitely be awesome. I loved the inclusion of the Behemoth Heartless in KHI. Maybe we could get Ozma or Omega?

Jungle Book would be a fun world! Toy Story would be great. Shrinking Sora down to toy size like when he had to go through the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland! Also it would make sense with the recent announcement of Toy Story 4 :D

I wonder if we'll ever get some of the non-musical classics like The Great Mouse Detective, The Aristocats, Robin Hood, Sword and the Stone, or The Rescuers.

Well, Merlin is a key recurring character in the series so maybe a SitS world is not out of the question.

Oh great, do I need to go and watch all of the Pixar crap I've deliberately avoided for the last decade? C'mon Squenix. You still haven't done all of the classics. There'd better be some Robin Hood in this!

Fynn

Big Hero 6 is not Pixar.

You did not just call the company that made Toy Story 3 crap.

While I completely agree, to the defense of Randy, they did make Cars :p

You'd better believe it! I was being a tad facetious though. They are good, I'm just not overly into their stuff and prefer the traditional Disney stuff.
I think Frozen was great though, that was 3D animated. It just felt more disney-like than pixar-like. It's more about the types of stories and characters to me.

Btw, did anyone else notice that Tangled is in this too? It was in the E3 video, but hardly anyone seems to have noticed it.

We noticed! (http://home.eyesonff.com/showthread.php/163208-E3-2015-Tangled-will-be-in-Kingdom-Hearts-3-and-a-new-trailer!) But it has been a few months now since it was announced. Big Hero 6 is just the newest one to get hyped about.
