Kingdom Hearts III Main Stage Event shows off new Keyblade Transformation and character footage!


Andrew Altieri

During the Main Stage Event featuring Miyu Irino and Megumi Toyoguchi, there was new footage of the game being shown extended footage from the E3 2018 and TGS2018 trailers.

 

It featured Sora fighting heartless in Caribbean, Toy Box, Arendelle, and Monstropolis with never before seen gameplay, including a finisher for the Blizzard Blades keyblade transformation. A new gameplay scene using the Merry-Go-Round attraction flow during a boss fight with the Ice Titan and Lava Titan was also shown as well as an extended clip of the boss fight with Marshmallow.

Finally, an extended clip of Aqua and Sora was shown.

 

You can watch the new footage below!

Dang. I was hoping you could control Riku when fighting Aqua, but I guess it's just gonna be Sora for the entire game..

It makes sense that Sora's going against Aqua. I've should've known this was so, instead of Riku going against her.

I was thinking Riku was going to go against Aqua, but his Way of the Dawn might've been broken at the time. And remembering the 0.2 Opening and the Big Hero 6 trailer, with Sora reaching out his hand to get Aqua's hand, it's really hitting the point that Sora will save Aqua. 

 

The Battle Music on the other hand. It's really starting to grow on me. It's darker than Phantom Aqua's battle theme. I can just hear it and feel the cold chills.

I am stunned they decided to show a preview of the boss fight against Aqua. Once upon a time, this was unheard of and in those days, doing something like this would be unprecedented. The music for it though... Even though we heard only a fraction of it, it single handily blew every piece of every previous title out of the water. I love the way they throw in a taste ofFate of the Unknown in there.

Why were the voice actors so surprised lmao x) Especially Sora's voice actor.

 

Acting? xD

While I usually don't watch many of these type of events with hosts talking all over the video, it's probably boring to have them react all blandly. I've seen a few Japanese shows with similar "reveals" and they also acted all surprised and enthusiastic, admittedly sometimes a little over the top, despite knowing what will come.

At least they should know because putting people on a stage to present something without them having any clue might not be the best idea. (Apart from the fact that he should of course know because he's the VA and obviously part of the scene. xD)

The things is they only voice the lines so this may be the first time the actors are seeing this scene play out fully finished, the other thing it could be is maybe they were told they were going to show a scene with their characters but not which scene.
