I started playing Kingdom Hearts 3 on the PlayStation 4 on Tuesday and I love it so far! It was definitely worth the wait! This post will mostly be spoiler-free except for the sections on the first world and the Gummi ship!
Kingdom Hearts 3 has a complicated plot and many loose threads to tie up so I’ll just give a general story summary. Sora needs to get his powers back after Dream Drop Distance, find allies, and stop Xenahort.
I loved the new “Dearly Beloved” title song. It is my favorite version of the song and I love the piano! I started crying when I heard it!
I also love “Face My Fears”! I loved it with the opening cinematic and I also love the message of the song! Utada Hikaru and Skrillex are a great team!
I love the combat so I wanted to give it it’s own section! It’s like they took everything I loved about the previous games I have played! There are special reactions from Kingdom Hearts 2.5 like Donald Duck’s Flare Force. The links are also fun to use! I loved using the Meow Wow as a summon! It’s so adorable! Magic is also a lot of fun in this game!
Using the keyblade is fun as well since Sora already has some of his powers from previous games like multiple combos and basic spells and the keyblade can transform and get it’s own unique moves.
The new system is called attractions and I love it because it involves fighting enemies with Disney rides!
First World: General Impressions
The first world was fun to explore! The plot followed the plot of the film! I loved seeing the characters with their new graphics! Everyone looks great! It was a good introduction to the game and made me excited to play more!
First World Bosses: Spoilers
The bosses were so much fun! I loved that I got to fight four bosses in a row! My favorite boss to fight was the Rock Titan because I got to climb a mountain and also fight him with a roller coaster attraction! My least favorite was the Tornado Titan because I found the fight to be confusing since it was in the air and there were platforms, but I still enjoyed it! I am hoping that I might get to fight Hades later on in the game!
Minor spoiler section about gummi ship exploration!
I love the new gummi ship! I love that it is an open world and I get to explore space! The game also shows you where to go and you can explore and fight Heartless or get treasure on the way!
The Journey Continues
I stopped playing on Tuesday after going back to the first world to explore more of the environment after saving the world! I am currently on the Toy Box world! I have had lots of fun so far and I am looking forward to how the plot will unfold! I also look forward to seeing more Disney worlds!
