Hikaru Utada Blesses Kingdom Hearts III (Plus New Reveals)

If you are even remotely interested in Kingdom Hearts, you are familiar with the iconic theme, Simple and Clean, along with its many remixes. The golden-voiced songstress Hikaru Utada is back to grace Kingdom Hearts III with its theme song. This past weekend, at D23 Expo Japan, Square Enix wowed fans with two surprises. Don't Think Twice is a new song from Hikaru Utada and it will be the theme song for Kingdom Hearts III. Aside from that, they showed that Sora and crew will “scare because they care” during this adventure.

This past weekend at D23 Expo Japan 2018, a special event for Disney fans created by D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, held at Tokyo Disney Resort, Square Enix and Disney thrilled fans with the announcement of a new Disney/Pixar film based world, Monsters, Inc., in Kingdom Hearts III. Two new trailers, revealed during the Expo, take viewers deep into the frights and delights of the animated classic as Sora, Donald and Goofy transform into monsters to blend into the Monstropolis cityscape.

During their epic adventure, Sora and his companions join forces with Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan, with a special appearance by Boo. Fright team all-stars Mike and Sulley lend their scaring talents and special combination attacks against their enemies.

Square Enix also revealed new cutscenes and gameplay from the Toy Story-inspired world, Disney princess Rapunzel (Tangled) as a party member, flashy Keyblade transformations, a link system featuring Ariel (The Little Mermaid), and the return of Dream Eater Meow Wow as well as Kingdom Hearts villains Marluxia and Vanitas.

Kingdom Hearts III is slated for a 2018 release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
