Some Disney and Final Fantasy Side Activities Await
While a game’s length has little to do with its quality, in my humble opinion, it’s worth noting how much Kingdom Hearts III goodness players can expect come release. Apparently, the game will offer about 50 hours of gameplay if players stick to the golden path.
Reported by Geek.com, a hefty portion of the Kingdom Hearts III experience will rely on minigames. If you’re amicable toward Disney-inspired side-activities, then there will be plenty of content to enjoy. As an example, there will be a Ratatouille cooking game with Remy, in conjunction with “20 different old-school Tiger Toys/Game & Watch style 2D side-scrolling games based on Mickey cartoons from the 1930s and 40s. Building your Gummi ship (used for traveling to each world) is pretty much a mini-game of its own Kingdom.” All in all, the main story campaign coupled with minigames will involve 80+ hours of gameplay.
We also learned a little bit about the Toy Story world, which will have a mission based around mechs; it entails Sora jumping in and out of mechs to fight enemy robots. As an additional tidbit, a section of the demo previewed an entire collection of Final Fantasy toys. Time will tell if they make their way into the final game.
Looking at the length of Kingdom Hearts III, it’s possible Square Enix reserved a little more time to refine the story and mini-games. That said, the company recently admitted that they might have jumped the gun on the game’s announcement. Find it for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019.
