    • Do as much damage as possible on your finishing blows: The higher the damage on your finishing blows, the more score you’ll earn. Be sure to use powerful special attacks with a low hit count.
    • Use hard-hitting special attacks to earn a damage bonus: When you use a hard-hitting special attack on an enemy and defeat the enemy, you’ll be able to earn up to a 40% damage bonus towards your score.

    Note: The system will record the highest damage dealt against an enemy and then convert it to a damage bonus when that enemy is defeated. The higher the value, the higher the damage bonus that you will get.The system will only record the highest damage value, using special attacks multiple times will not provide you with additional damage bonus.

  14. New information regarding the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III: Re:Mind DLC has been revealed at the Los Angeles performance of Kingdom Hearts Orchestra -World of Tres- today! In keeping with his appearances at the previous Kingdom Hearts orchestras in Los Angeles and this year's -World of Tres- performance in Tokyo, series director Tetsuya Nomura made a guest appearance at the end of the concert to announce this information and present a new teaser trailer for the DLC.

    After coming out onto the stage, Nomura was greeted with a standing ovation from the audience. He said that he arrived in Los Angeles on the same day of the concert, commenting "I haven't even unpacked, and I accidentally came wearing sandals", eliciting a hearty laugh from the audience. Nomura then mentioned that the paid DLC was revealed at the Tokyo performance, before stating "We have prepared something to show today, for the people who came here, so have a look." He remarked that the trailer shown at the orchestra is "exclusive" (despite the trailer subsequently being published on YouTube), and that video and photography were not permitted. Nomura also revealed that the Re:Mind DLC will be launched this winter and will include "more scenes that we will like."

    Credit to KH13 staff member Mio-chan for providing translations of Nomura's words!

    Shortly after the concert, the English version of the Re:Mind teaser was uploaded on the official Kingdom Hearts Youtube channel. You can watch it below.

    The Japanese version is as follows:

    In this trailer, we witness a meeting between Young Xehanort and a cloaked figure who seems to be Master of Masters, in the Keyblade Graveyard. The scene alludes to Young Xehanort being mentored by the him, who asks him how "the world tour" went. It seems he gave Xehanort the black coat to ward off the darkness, which is interesting seeing that in this scene, Young Xehanort's eyes are of the original grey colour instead of yellow, commonly a symbol of darkness.

    I But the most striking scene seems to be the one between Xigbar and Luxord, both characters with roots from Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]. Luxord confronts Xigbar at in the world of Olympus, asking him who he is, but then leaves saying it doesn't matter anyway. Xigbar then wonders out loud, "The question is who are you, Luxord?" This makes an allusion to how the identity of Luxord may be central to the story of Kingdom Hearts.

    In terms of gameplay, the Re:Mind DLC will make the players able to play with Riku, Aqua, and Roxas in certain situations. The trailer features these playable characters during the battles in the Keyblade Gravevyard towards the end of the game.

    The Oathkeeper Keyblade and the Keyblade's formchange also makes an appearance.

    From the DLC's first reveal announcement in the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra -World of Tres- Tokyo show, we know that the ReMind DLC will be a paid DLC to include:

    • An additional Scenario, "Re:Mind"
    • Limit Cut Episode + Boss
    • Secret Episode + Boss
    • English VA option (only for Japan; no word on an equivalent option for non-JP copies)

    We also know that there will be a free DLC featuring a new Keyblade and a new formchange.

    Lastly, another interesting feature about the Re:Mind DLC is the coda symbol featured in its logo. In music, a coda ("⊕") is a passage that brings a piece (or a movement) to an end. According to an observation made by Project Destati, this could have additional symbolism in regards to the additional story content that the Re:Mind DLC could bring to Kingdom Hearts III.



    You can check out some screenshots from the Re:Mind teaser trailer below!

    We have also uploaded a photo album with some interesting pictures from the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra -World of Tres- concert at Los Angeles. Check it out below!

  16. Rumors of Kingdom Hearts being ported to the Nintendo Switch have been making its way around. Imran Khan, Senior Editor at GameInformer, guest-starred on Kinda Funny Games and spoke about the possibility of Kingdom Hearts III being ported onto the Switch. Khan stated that there has been talks between Nintendo and Square Enix regarding the possibility of Kingdom Hearts III on the Switch, but Kingdom Hearts III has been deemed unfeasible and is too demanding of a game. However, Khan believes that there is a higher possibility of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix being ported to the Switch and the remasters are probably where Nintendo and Square Enix settled it, but it hasn't been confirmed. You can watch Kinda Funny Games featuring Imran Khan here. Would you want Kingdom Hearts to be available on the Switch? Let us know below!

  18. Our spikey-haired hero has returned to continue his fight against the darkness in a brand new and most awaited installment of the 17-year saga, Kingdom Hearts III! Kingdom Hearts III is a masterpiece that flourishes through the cinematic cutscenes, gameplay, and story while retaining bits and pieces from past games. This preliminary review will go over our staff's  takeaways of the game without spoiling the story. An in-depth analysis and video review will also be coming soon! Update [Feb 11, 2019]: Our video review, which includes our rating and a fuller discussion on the game, is now up! Watch it here or scroll down to the bottom of this article!


    The charm of Kingdom Hearts III lies prominently in the amazing cinematic scenes Square Enix developed working in unison with Disney and Disney Pixar. Compared to the past games in the series, Kingdom Hearts III’s cutscenes are more vibrant and the characters are far more expressive, both in cinematics and in gameplay. No more robot face Sora! Sora blends in smoothly with Pixar characters as if he were originally part of the movies. The scenes transition into battle flawlessly and without delay. Along with the beautiful visuals, Yoko Shimomura’s arrangements amp up the emotion throughout the game and resonate nostalgia, beginning with the new arrangement of Dearly Beloved. Hearing Dearly Beloved brought back many memories and emotions from the years of playing the series. To top it off, the dialogue is delightful; written by director Tetsuya Nomura himself, the scenarios were scripted naturally, with humor scattered throughout that underlined the theme of friendship. You will find yourself chuckling even at the cheesiest lines! The story is an engaging experience with contributions by the player itself but also succeeds in delivering the immersive of the original Disney movies themselves.


    As expected, Kingdom Heart's storytelling's staple convolution throughout over a dozen different games may hinder new players from grasping the core plot elements - even at a basic level. Actually, it's not even an issue of understanding the plot, which is partly aided by references to past events, flashbacks, and the Memory Archive summary videos; but rather it is an issue of appreciating it. Longtime fans may make jokes regarding the series's plot but we still find ourselves enraptured by plot twists (and holes), tangled dialogue, vague implications, abstract references, and symbolism in the story. For brand new or fairly new players, their inexperience with the "side games" of the story (whose stories can be accessed at once via the 1.5+2.5 and 2.8 collections for PS4) may not hinder the fun of playing Kingdom Hearts III or even understanding the superficial plot points, but can sadly interfere with the delight that comes with both comprehending the underlying plot and characters' personalities or pondering about its mysteries. Despite this, whether Kingdom Hearts III can encourage new players to try out the other games (or at least read multiple wikis on the series) is a question that needs to be asked exclusively to those very players.


    Before we dive in to discuss battle, let's take a moment to talk about the amazing Gummiphone. The Gummiphone is first introduced as a way to communicate in the Kingdom Hearts universe and as a way for Jiminy Cricket to record your adventures. But as with any smartphone, its main use becomes quickly evident; selfies! Characters will pose when you aim the front or back camera at them, and you can make Sora give a cheesy smile (pun intended). Some characters are more photogenic than others (*cough* Rapunzel *cough*) and you may find yourself taking a few dozen pictures of or with them. The views are also breathtaking, in some worlds more than others, and you can't help but want to record this in photographs. Unfortunately, the maximum number of photographs allowed is 100; but you can easily save your favorite ones externally on social media, and delete some as you go along, such as the Lucky Emblems photos, which are stored in their own separate album. Speaking of Lucky Emblems (just another name for Hidden Mickeys, really), snapping a good picture of them will enable you to unlock the secret ending movie after beating the game upon installing Update 1.03. The requirements are to snap all 90 Emblems in Beginner mode, 60 on Standard, and 30 on Proud, and the movie can be viewed either after the Epilogue or in the Theatre.

    Now, onto battles. Kingdom Hearts III’s gameplay feels very fluid and has improved from the demo. There are factors that pay homage to past games such as the return of Flowmotion and Shotlock. The game also has many new varieties of mechanics. Formchanges, in which Sora and Keyblades transform into powerful forms with very effective combos, and a mechanic called Attractions, that unveil beautiful cinematic scenes of Sora, Donald, and Goofy riding recognizable Disney rides that release powerful finishers. The detail and time put into the Attractions are amazing, and many, like Splash Run, leave you feeling like you're riding them yourself; but they often feel excessive and overpowered in battle. There are times during battle when I accidentally trigger the Attractions and it feels more in the way than helping. (By the way, you can change between different reaction commands using L2!)

    Image result for kh3 reaction commands

    There are many layers in this game that enable you to vary your strategy from world to world, battle to battle, and within the same battle! As always, you can equip your favorite abilities, but in Kingdom Hearts III it is one of the keys to making gameplay more challenging. In fact, selecting Proud mode is only one way to test one's abilities; for more competitive players, equipping and unequipping certain abilities (such as MP Safety, Zero EXP, or Auto-Finish) is highly recommended. A monumental change has been implemented in the Keyblades in this game; along with formchanges, each with their own gimmicks and abilities, even more variety can be added by switching between 3 Keyblades in a single battle or even during combos! Switching Keyblades also helps in retaining forms by preventing their timer from depleting. And if that isn't enough, you can power up your Keyblades with the help of Moogles, the meisters of synthesis! After formchanging your Keyblade, you can choose to deal powerful finishing attacks; some can leave you with a sense of accomplishments as you knock down enemy after enemy; others... not so much. (Try the Hero's Origin Keyblade finisher for the Counter Shield formchange when you get the time; you will know exactly what I mean!)

    Among Kingdom Hearts III's plethora of battle elements to use at your disposal, other examples include Links with other Disney Characters (and Dream Eaters) and Team-up Attacks with your allies. It feels refreshing to be able to hear your party members call out to alert you that they are ready to deliver a special move together. Some of these moves can also be used outside of (or exclusively in) battle to overcome barriers in your exploration, such as burning debris with Goofy's shield or tall cliffs with Rapunzel's hair.


    Variety in combat would mean very little if not accompanied by a variety of battles. Fortunately, in Kingdom Hearts III, the two go hand-in-hand. (Yes, pun intended.) The enemies in the game are quite diverse and therefore push you to choose different combat strategies; this aids even the least creative, most stoic players to come up with their own styles - and enjoy doing so! Almost every fight - from the hordes of Heartless to the small, medium, and big boss fights - has a different fighting experience to offer. The boss fights are always interesting and ask you to change strategies during the battle and relish in figuring your way out of it.

    The worlds of Kingdom Hearts III also introduce new mini-games for players to enjoy! Each world has its own set of games along with recurring ones. A favorite of mine is the Tangled rhythm mini-game where Sora dances at the festival in Corona. The mechanics are very similar to Atlantica’s mini-game in Kingdom Hearts II, but the music is instrumental and amps the rhythm as you proceed through the different stages. Classic Kingdom mini-games are also accessible through the Gummiphone, inspired by LCD games and themed after classic black and white Disney shorts; these are simple yet addictive, and fun to spend time playing during breaks from grander fights and breaking previous records.


    Something convenient in Kingdom Hearts III is Remy's restaurant in Twilight Town - which can be accessed through the world map as well! At Remy's Bistro, you can use the ingredients you've collected to cook new recipes through a pleasing mini-game and the outcomes are beneficial! When dishes are consumed, it raises stats for a temporary amount of time (and you get a bonus for a full-course meal). Ingredients can be bought in Moogle Shops but also collected in different worlds; make sure to check every cranny, smash every barrel, hit all the bushes, and swim every way! Even if those broken barrels don't yield anything on your shopping list, they might give you some extra Munny to spend - which is great, because you might find yourself strapped for cash otherwise.


    Apart from looking for ingredients and Lucky Emblems, another element that rewards the player for exploration comes with the Gummi Ship's "open-world" mode, but let's talk about that within the next section of our review: the return of the Gummi Ship.

    It could not have been imagined in any better way.

    The Gummi Ship element of the gameplay has been completely overhauled in Kingdom Hearts III. You can now explore the universe freely and multi-directionally, leading your own way across asteroids, avoiding enemies, marveling at space lights or venturing to find treasures hidden inside puzzle-like Treasure Spheres while bathed in the light of faraway stars. The stars themselves may represent a constellation that you can take pictures of (yes, you can use your Gummiphone in space) to be rewarded with new blueprints. And then, when you're well rested, you can dash towards enemies of your level of choice and engage in a fight in the Gummi Ship's battle mode. The Gummi Ship can be customized to boost appearance and stats at an even greater level in this game, and can be equipped with auxiliaries such as special weapons and "teeny ships"! It is something I suggest you play yourself to experience the marvel of. Below are some of our favorite Gummi Ship designs!




    In conclusion, Kingdom Hearts III isn't perfect, but it's definitely a masterpiece. Following the series for years, this game stirs up so many emotions and is a rollercoaster ride from beginning to end. It makes you laugh so hard that you can't breathe, it also breaks your heart and makes you cry. It is incredibly fun to play and easy to immerse yourself into as it offers you the freedom to choose your own play style, all this in a gorgeous Disney and Square Enix original settings.

    If you haven't picked up Kingdom Hearts III yet, you should! If you are new to the series, the game offers a memory archive in which you can watch videos recapping the past games, and is not timid in bringing back events from the past to remind old players and recap new ones. If you are Disney fans, all the better experience as it takes you on a nostalgic adventure as you re-experience beloved stories or a new storyline altogether with your favorite Disney characters. But to truly appreciate the charm of its storytelling, we recommend playing Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, both on PS4 and also available as a physical bundle in Kingdom Hearts -The Story So Far- and digitally in the All-In-One Package. If all else fails, there's always fanmade recap videos such as the Kingdom Hearts Timeline series to help you out!

    But whether or not this is your first Kingdom Hearts game, it will be an insanely fun ride.

    Critic Excerpt Score
    Gamereactor "Simply put, Kingdom Hearts III is a masterpiece." 100
    PlayStation LifeStyle (Editor's Choice)
    "I never once thought there was a way Square Enix could live up to the hype the company has built up for this game. But bravo, it has done it and then some."
    Impulsegamer "It’s a great use of the Disney characters and imagining of the locations that should entertain young and old… it does in our house." 98
    XGN "Magical from start to finish." 98
    Famitsu - 97.5 (39/40)
    Hobby Consolas "Its greatest achievement is that, despite the passage of time, it is still an experience that can only be described with one word: magic." 95
    The Games Machine "Kingdom Hearts 3 succeeds in the difficult task of being up to expectations, not distorting anything but raising to the nth degree the strengths of the previous chapters." 95
    Game Informer (Game of the Month)
    "A main attraction worth waiting for."
    Easy Allies "It may have a been a long time coming, but Kingdom Hearts III delivers on its promises, and it’s easily the best game in the series. " 95
    Meristation "An outstanding adventure that has come to remind us why Sora, Riku and Kairi ... and Donald, Goofy and Mickey Mouse, of course, are living videogame history." 91
    3DJuegos "Its extraordinary fusion of creative worlds reaches a new peak in the history of the franchise, giving rise to playable concepts that surprise from start to finish in a durable video game loaded with content." 90
    US Gamer "Kingdom Hearts 3 ushers a beloved series into a new generation, while wholeheartedly embracing its roots." 90
    Atomix "The wait for KH3 was very long, but believe me when I tell you that it was really worth it." 90
    GamesBeat "Excessive, yet satisfying." 90
    IGN Italia "A game that focuses on spectacularity, coming out head-on. Kingdom Hearts III is the worthy conclusion of a journey begun seventeen years ago." 90
    IGN Germany "Kingdom Hearts 3 is by far the best Disney game, a fun action RPG and the successful completion of the Xehanort saga. Those interested in just one of these three aspects will have fun with the third part of the crossover series." 90
    IGN Spain "It's magic." 90
    Multiplayer.it "It would have been absurd to drastically change a structure that, for better or for worse, has become iconic. So Tetsuya Nomura did not do it." 90
    Press Start Australia "With exhilarating combat, fantastic Disney worlds and a smart approach to an unavoidably convoluted story, it does everything it needs to not only please hardcore fans but anyone up for a solid action JRPG. Against all odds, this might be the perfect Kingdom Hearts game." 90
    Vandal "Kingdom Hearts ends an era with a fantastic game, spectacular, varied and, above all, very fun." 90
    GamePro Germany "A colorful firework of childhood memories, motivating role-playing mechanics, and spectacular boss fights." 90
    Gameblog.fr "A true homage to the fans of the saga, to whom it addresses itself above all, Kingdoms Hearts III retraces the end of Sora's journey through the exploration of new worlds, more beautiful and vast than in the past, with a strong respect for the Disney worlds from which it is inspired. " 90
    Trusted Reviews "Whether you’re a hardcore fan or a hesitant newcomer, there is an undeniable charm to Kingdom Hearts 3 that’s easy to fall in love with." 90
    PushSquare "The fact that Kingdom Hearts III even managed to release could be considered a miracle in of itself, but what’s perhaps even more surprising is that the finished product defies all expectations." 90
    Twinfinite "It’s an unerring tribute to everything Disney and what the Kingdom Hearts series has become, and despite its few flaws creates an interesting blueprint for where the series could go next with gameplay and story." 90
    Shacknews "Kingdom Hearts III is an absolute triumph, conquering the darkness that plagued the series' past and standing firmly in the light." 90
    Worth Playing "Kingdom Hearts III is exactly the sequel it should be." 90
    Hardcore Gamer "From combat to story to graphics, Kingdom Hearts III delivers the magic, gut-punches and grandeur the series is known for." 90
    Game Revolution "When the credits finish rolling, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that you’ve played a game like no other." 90
    Digital Trends "Kingdom Hearts III plays similarly to its PS2 predecessors while bringing new elements to the gameplay that make it feel incredibly modern." 90
    Power Unlimited "If you have warm feelings for Disney characters and worlds, this is perhaps the best game ever, but even if you do not feel anything for Disney, it is actually mandatory." 90
    LevelUp "Undoubtedly, Kingdom Hearts III is a satisfying chapter in one of the most beloved sagas by fans of the action JRPGs." 88
    4Players.de "Kingdom Hearts 3 is more than the sum of its items, more than a franchise mix of Disney and Square characters. Despite small weaknesses, it is an experience that leads me through a wide range of emotions and will establish itself as one of the most outstanding action-adventure of the year." 88
    IGN "Kingdom Hearts 3 is a fulfilling evolution and resolution of the franchise that shows it’s still full of heart." 87
    App Trigger "Though the plot is a little too reliant on side entries and remembering almost everything in the series, Kingdom Hearts III is a welcome return of the Disney action-RPG epic and the best game in the series to date, making you really want to see the next chapter in the series as soon as possible." 85
    Gamer.ni "Kingdom Hearts 3 is far from perfect, but it is everything the fans hoped for." 85
    GameCrate "Kingdom Hearts III is too much game for its own good." 85
    SpazioGames "Kingdom Hearts III is technically excellent, aesthetically bewitching and in some moments manages to shine and sweep away any limitations it might have." 80
    GamesRadar+ "I'm not sure how I lived without its Mickey Mouse shaped madness in my life." 80
    GameSpot  "In 2002, as Sora, I left Destiny Islands to travel across the universe and make new friends. In 2019 I brought old ones home, and I had so much fun doing it." 80
    Eurogamer Italy "Congestions aside, the combat system is one of the best in the saga for variety and dynamics, and there is no shortage of battles that will challenge the most experienced players." 80
    FANDOM "This magical finale overcomes its storytelling flaws." 80
    Game Rant "You may find yourself googling character names and plot details from 15 years ago, but all of that confusion fades away when you get lost in the moment summoning tea cups or a giant rollercoaster to help attack a big boss with your best friends." 80
    ScreenRant "A sprawling, varied game that is all the better for its wild, confusing moments." 80
    Destructoid "Despite all of the absurd twists and turns, the character missteps and the complete lack of some series-defining cast members, there are very few creations out there that make me smile this often." 80
    PlayStation Universe "Kingdom Hearts 3 has everything a title could want: iconic characters, enthralling and accessible gameplay, and a story that just won’t quit." 80
    CGMagazine "Kingdom Hearts III is the biggest, boldest, flashiest entry in the saga—one that builds upon the gameplay systems of its forebears in a kaleidoscopic carnival of action RPG jubilance." 80
    JeuxActu "Backed up by a enjoyable battle system and a genuine love for the animation films it has adapted, Tetsuya Nomura’s work takes on the big boys and we cannot not suggest it to you." 80
    GameSpace "If you embrace that it’s all nonsense to serve you up a delightful nostalgic romp through some of the greatest and most beloved family films, you’re not going to be disappointed." 80
    The Digital Fix "Kingdom Hearts 3 is a great game that parades itself around in a plethora of showy and colourful clothing and just asks you to watch." 80
    Cultured Vultures "While the game does come with some problems with its plot and big empty worlds, I wouldn’t call them deal breakers, as whatever they lacked for they made up for with energy and, no pun intended, heart." 80
    Jeuxvideos.com "Despite its shortcomings, Kingdom Hearts III remains a very good experience which distils its world brilliantly." 80
    Gamers Heroes "Newcomers to the series will be baffled by the complexity and bizarre nature of Kingdom Hearts III’s story. Despite this, if you like good combat and want to visit Disney World, you can do far worse than this title." 80
    EGM "Is it a game that lives up to a decade of hype, though? Perhaps not. But maybe no game could." 75
    God is a Geek "It may have been challenging at times, and the final flourish of boss fights nearly killed me, but I did enjoy playing the concluding game in Sora’s journey to vanquish evil once and for all." 75
    The Guardian "Kingdom Hearts III plays it extremely safe, ultimately banking on nostalgia and delivering more of the same. Its charm is only skin-deep." 60
    VideoGamer "Kingdom Hearts III is a beautiful hunk of sugary writing, convoluted plotting, and repetitive combat with a reliance on beloved IP that exposes its shallow core." 40
    Game Watch - N/A
    Eurogamer "A grand finale that's both torturous and sublime." N/A
    Kotaku "Wow, they filled this game with stuff." N/A
    The Verge "Maybe this is actually the ideal way to play: you’re going to be confused no matter what, so you might as well embrace it." N/A
    Mashable "I love the idea of this game being able to float me back into a time where I could cheer for Mickey Mouse without feeling silly and cry because Naminé was lonely. That feeling alone is worth the box price on Kingdom Hearts III." N/A
    Waypoint "Kingdom Hearts III is an absolute disaster. I loved every minute of it." N/A
    The A.V. Club "Kingdom Hearts III is a cheerful celebration of Disney’s inescapable cultural monopoly." N/A
    Jimquisition "Yes, it’s more total nonsense from a story perspective. As a game? Well, it’s a ton of bloody fun, because it’s a very good game!" N/A
    Polygon "After years of buildup, the story’s conclusion fails to do it justice." N/A
